Selected Phone Routes RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi all,

     

    we are trying to find out which Gateway/MediationServer is selected, if we make an outgoing call.

     

    Our Company is split to 2 Locations. On both locations we have an Mediation Server and a Mediant 1000.

    Then we have some user which are working from homeoffice only.

     

    How can i assing a user of location 1 to the mediation Server of location 1 and all users of location 2 to the Mediation Server of location 2?

     

    Another Idea is to set up one Phone Route and assing both Mediation Server.

    - What happens this way

    - Which Server will be selected?

    - What happens, if one Mediation Server is not aviable?

     

    Thanks a lot

     

    Ciao

    The basic way:

    create phone usages based on locations: site 1 - local calls, site 2 - local calls, site 1 - mobile calls, site 2 - mobile calls and so on.

    create strategies also based on locations, assigned to each site users.

    when you want to create the route for local calls: for site 1, create route based on local pattern, put Mediation server of the site 1 first, Mediation server of the site 2 as second (for redundancy when Mediation server site 1 is unavailable) and assign phone usage: site 1 - local calls. For site 2, create the same route except the order of Mediation server, and assign phone usage: site 2 - local calls.

    Do the same for the other usages.

    If you have multiple mediation servers for same route then round robin is used
