How to Use Regions and Locations in CUCM
When learning Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM), it is important to understand the distinction between regions and locations, as they are fundamental concepts in Cisco's Call Admission Control (CAC) architecture.
A region defines the audio codec that devices will use for the audio portion of a call. The codec, such as G.711 or G.729, determines the compression algorithm that will be used in the calls. The region also defines the maximum amount of bandwidth between two endpoints that will be available during the call for both audio and video. In CUCM, you will configure the codec and bandwidth available between each physical region (such as cities) in your organization's operation.
While regions define per-call bandwidth, locations define the total bandwidth for all calls. In CCUM, you will configure the maximum amount of audio and video bandwidth between each physical location (such as buildings) in your organization's operation.
