Chapter 8 Implementing Bandwidth Management

When an IP WAN connects different sites in a Cisco Unified Communications network, bandwidth consumption at the IP WAN should be minimized. Techniques that can help conserve bandwidth on the IP WAN in a multisite deployment include reducing the required bandwidth of voice streams, keeping some voice streams such as local media resources away from the IP WAN, and employing special features such as multicast Music On Hold (MOH) from branch router flash or using transcoders.

This chapter describes all these techniques and features and their implementation.
