Gatekeeper sub-zone setup

Does anybody have a sample config of creating sub-zones within a single gatekeeper setup? I am trying to set each physical location in our network as a separate sub-zone and then apply differing b/w policies to each subzone.

Since there has been no response to your post, it appears to be either too complex or too rare an issue for other forum members to assist you. If you don't get a suitable response to your post, you may wish to review our resources at the online Technical Assistance Center ( or speak with a TAC engineer. You can open a TAC case online at

If anyone else in the forum has some advice, please reply to this thread.

Thank you for posting.

Re: Gatekeeper sub-zone setup

You can create 'sub-zones' on a gatekeeper by creating multiple local zones. The key to remember is that there can always be only 1 gatekeeper per zone and each gatekeeper can control multiple zones. For a config example, suppose you have a site in NY, CA and NC. You gatekeeper config can look like this:


zone local NY

zone local CA

zone local NC

zone prefix NY 212*

zone prefix CA 408*

zone prefix NC 919*

gw-type-prefix 1# default-technology

On you endpoints in these three sites, configure each

to register to its appropriate zone and have each endpoint register with a tech-prefix of 1#.

At this point, you endpoints will have dial-peer or route patterns defined to send ARQ's to the gatekeeper for these calls.
