A/V Conferencing enables real-time audio and video communications between your users (that is, provided they have appropriate client devices such as headsets for audio conferences, and webcams for video conferences). If your deployment supports conferencing and you enable both web conferencing and A/V Conferencing, you can collocate the A/V Conferencing Server with the Front End Server), or you can deploy one or more stand-alone A/V Conferencing Servers (A/V Conferencing pool). If you chose the option to deploy a stand-alone A/V Conferencing Server, you must define it in Topology Builder.

All pools at a site and the pools of multiple central sites can use the same A/V Conferencing Server,if usage does not exceed the capacity of the A/V Conferencing Server. For details about A/V Conferencing, including scaling, see Web Conferencing and A/V Conferencing in the Planning documentation. If you do not want to deploy an A/V Conferencing Server as part of your initial topology, you can add it later. For details about defining a topology to support an A/V Conferencing Server, see Define the A/V Conferencing Server in Topology Builder in the Deployment documentation.
