i have one cluster v7.1.3 with six servers distributed in two main sites. Main site 1 is having the publisher server and two subscribers and main site 2 is having 3 subscribers. and i have centralized call processing for more than 100 remote branches connected through WAN.
I am doing design at this stage with some testing in Lab and iam planning the media resources for the main site users and the branch users. Iam having the branch users with CUE serving the branch users as voice mail and AA. Also the gateway should function as SRST.
i am planning to have hardware resources for the branch users (local gateways) and software resources for main sites users.
note: iam not planning to use the publisher server for any MRG
since i have six servers, i am planning the following:
• Main site 1 MRG: MTP2, MTP3, MTP4, MTP6, MTP6, MOH2, MOH3, MOH4, MOH5, MOH6, SW-CONF2, SW-CONF3, SW-CONF4, SW-CONF5, SW-CONF6, ANN2, ANN3, ANN4, ANN5, ANN6
and so on for remaining branches
note: MTP2 is for first subscriber in main site 1, MTP3 is for second subscriber in main site 1, MTP4 is for first subscriber in main site 2 and so on.
since this is one cluster then iam having the local media resources as primary in the MRG for main site 1 and the other site as secondary media resources and vice versa for the main site 2 (as defined above)
is what iam planning right? and what about the ANN and MTP for the branches, do i need it and if yes in what way and how to configure?
