are there any plan regarding this? It is very unfortunate that endpoints stand alone do support BFCP but infra does not.
For Cloud this is something we are entertaining, technically it is very possible. We are trying to sort out if it makes sense since we handle content sharing for all protocol types, even SIP.
Today if someone calls into Cloud from a 3rd party SIP device we will send an embedded content feed. During the capabilities exchange, we will detect if they are able to receive content from Lifesize Cloud. If not then we will embed the feed into a single RTP steam. Voilà!
The Upside for the 3rd party SIP device is that they get content from Lifesize Cloud.
The Downside for the 3rd party SIP device is that they do not get a dual stream, it is only a single stream.
What is the use case you are trying to fulfill with BFCP?
any comment on this?
Checking with engineering.
BFCP support is a requirement. We do not have timeline on delivery for Cloud at this point.
any news on that? Interop with SIP based solutions out there urgently needs BFCP support...
any feedback here?
another try - any feedback here?
the use case trying to fulfil should be very obvious:
Dual Channel (Video and Presentation) connections to 3rd Party endpoints or infrastructure.
Have you ever used your embedded content sharing in productive environments? I guess no because otherwise that topic would be on a much higer priority level within your organisation.
It makes conferences worth the half and also the quality is a nightmare!
You as Lifesize should really start to have a look what is happening around you.
How do you explain a customer that wants to connect to a SIP based PC or Cisco system that they cannot use dual channel data sharing? Correct - you can not as Lifesize has not implemented something that meanwhile can be considered an industry standard! Any btw: in all of your sales presentations LS Cloud is considered to be an open strandard product with interop to other SIP and H323 EP? If you claim that how can a really basic thing like BFCP not implemented?
I honestly have to tell you that lot's of your partners - including us - are tired on these discussions.
Lifesize always has been a player in the market that stands for forward thinking ideas and I very much appritiate you new go to market strategy with Cloud - but what does that help us if the product lacks on basic stuff like BFCP, TLS and other things...
Looking forward to improvments@
Any progress here - so feedback since 2 month...
