MGCP and H323 on same gateway

Unanswered Question
Apr 2nd, 2008

Is it supported to have MGCP and H323 running on the same gateway controlled by CM 6.1 at the same time.

fxo --> h323 controlled

fxs --> mgcp controlled

I have this problem too.

Hybrid gateways are common. I assume you want caller-id on the FXOs which is the reason you are using H323? There are pros and cons to use one or the other. Some times you just grab some advantages of one gateway type and some of advantages of the other.

Yes it is for caller ID support.

But i will have a 4 port fxo card. Ports 0, 1 2 will be h323 controlled , port 3 will be mgcp.

And then I will have a 2 port fxs controlled as mgcp which will only use the fxo controlled port for out bound calls.
