Question 79 of 490
Which system location is used for intercluster Enhanced Location CAC on Cisco Unified Communications Manager?
The shadow location is used to enable a SIP trunk to pass Enhanced Location CAC information such as location name and Video-Traffic-Class (discussed below), among other things, required for Enhanced Location CAC to function between clusters.
In order to pass this location information across clusters, the SIP intercluster trunk (ICT) must be assigned to the "shadow" location.
The shadow location cannot have a link to other locations, and therefore no bandwidth can be reserved between the shadow location and other locations.
Any device other than a SIP ICT that is assigned to the shadow location will be treated as if it was associated to Hub_None.
That is important to know because if a device other than a SIP ICT ends up in the shadow location, bandwidth deductions will be made from that device as if it were in Hub_None, and that could have varying effects depending on the location and links configuration.
