Gateway/Gatekeeper optimal config

Hi guyz

We have a network of 3 Gateways(5300) in different locations

of Country.They are connected with PSTN on PRIs.Every

Gateway is entertaning its own Area code.

Right now we are receiving the calls from our provider

directly to our GWs but we want to use Gatekeeper(3640) to route

the calls to the GWs instead of them so that they will

just need the GK-IP. The configuration i did is below for

your consideration.

GW-1

Area code is 111-xxxxxx

H.323 id is GW-1

here is the config

h323-gateway voip interface

h323-gateway voip id Assume-GK ipaddr 10.10.10.1 1718

h323-gateway voip h323-id GW-1

h323-gateway voip tech-prefix 32144#

dial-peer voice 111 pots

destination-pattern 111T

port 0:D

GW-2

Area code is 212-xxxxxx

H.323 id is GW-2

here is the config

h323-gateway voip interface

h323-gateway voip id Assume-GK ipaddr 10.10.10.1 1718

h323-gateway voip h323-id GW-2

h323-gateway voip tech-prefix 32144#

dial-peer voice 212 pots

destination-pattern 212T

port 0:D

GW-3

Area code is 313-xxxxxx

H.323 id is GW-3

here is the config

h323-gateway voip interface

h323-gateway voip id Assume-GK ipaddr 10.10.10.1 1718

h323-gateway voip h323-id GW-3

h323-gateway voip tech-prefix 32144#

dial-peer voice 313 pots

destination-pattern 313T

port 0:D

GK

gatekeeper

zone local Assume-GK test.com 10.10.10.1

zone remote cec test1.com 172.16.1.1 1719

zone remote abc abc.com 192.168.1.1 1719

zone prefix Assume-GK 111* gw-priority 10 GW-1

zone prefix Assume-GK 212* gw-priority 10 GW-2

zone prefix Assume-GK 313* gw-priority 10 GW-3

gw-type-prefix 32144#* default-technology

The problem is when i do

Assume-GK#sh gatek gw-type-prefix

GATEWAY TYPE PREFIX TABLE

=========================

Prefix: 32144#* (Default gateway-technology)

Zone Assume-GK master gateway list:

11.11.11.11:1720 GW-1

12.12.12.12:1720 GW-2

13.13.13.13:1720 GW-3

Zone Assume-GK prefix 111* priority gateway list(s):

Priority 10:

11.11.11.11:1720 GW-1

Priority 5:

12.12.12.12:1720 GW-2

13.13.13.13:1720 GW-3

Zone Assume-GK prefix 212* priority gateway list(s):

Priority 10:

12.12.12.12:1720 GW-2

Priority 5:

11.11.11.11:1720 GW-1

13.13.13.13:1720 Gw-3

Only specified GWs can entertain the area calls.i want to know if i did the right

configuration for GWs and GK ??? if not what should be the optimal configuration

please tell me with explanation. Help will highly be appriciated. Thanks

Re: Gateway/Gatekeeper optimal config

here is my 2-cents:

if all you have is 3 gateways and only 3 area codes you are routing to, why do you have to go with a gatekeeper. You can just create dial-peer with session target ipv4 pointing specific area codes to the GWs that can terminate that area code on the PSTN side.

If you really have to go with the gatekeeper option, can you elaborate more on the problem? i am not sure i follow you.

Re: Gateway/Gatekeeper optimal config

Thanks for your reply. For the ease of understanding i just mentioned the 3 Gateways its more than that. Yes for calls between sites we follow the same configuration. The issue is the calls termination on our GWs from rest of the world through our privider. They were sending the calls to the GWs directly now we want to use GK as we are increasing service provider and want to route through it. I have done the config but the problem i feel is i find other GWs in area which they can't entertain as you can see in the output. Thanks

Re: Gateway/Gatekeeper optimal config

Hi, you need known how the rest of the world gw``s can send calls to your gw through your gatekeeper ? And your calls can be send through your gatekeeper to the rest of the world, or to your provider ?

Re: Gateway/Gatekeeper optimal config

thanks for your reply. well i am concerned about my why i am getting my other GWs in the list of Area code which they cannot entertain.
