    I'm pushing xml objects to cisco phones and I had a question about the authentication page hosted by CUCM.

    What's its scalability and is there a limit on how many requests it can handle? I remember reading in an old doc that we should offload the authentication to a custom page and was wondering if that was still recommended.

    The caveats and considerations for IPPS Execute authentication are still valid. If you have need to do lots of simultaneous requests at a high rate, it is highly recommended you offload the authentication URL. This will result in much better response, typically, and will offload significant processing from CCM.

    Is the recommended limit documented anywhere? I didn't see it in the Cisco IP Phone Services Application Development Notes pdf.

    In my current project it might not be possible to use a custom authentication url so we'll have to limit ourselves to whatever Cisco's recommended max is.

    No published limits and it's not'll need to do some testing to get an idea of the load you might generate on the CCM (if any) and throttle from the app-side if needed.
