CS 14’s Mediation Server and Gateway Relationship Changes – Routing to multiple gateways

Day 1 – Module 03

I ran into an issue with a client awhile ago when trying to configure a SIP trunk and realized that the mediation server had a 1 to 1 relationship with gateways and therefore in their environment, 3 mediations were required to be deployed. The problem with this was that if you lost the mediation server, you pretty much lose the gateway (unless you point another mediation server to the same gateway). In CS 14, this 1:1 relationship has been removed and you are now able to define routes so traffic is sent from the mediation server to multiple gateways thus giving you the 1:N relationship. What the limit is for N was not mentioned.
