Keyswitch and Gatekeeper in same router?

I have a customer that has requirements for a very small number of IP phones and 3 fax machines. I would like to use Keyswitch to manage the IP Phones. I'm looking to use the ATA 186 for the fax machines. Will I need an additional service such as a Gatekeeper to manage the ATA 186's or will they work with just a basic dial peer configuration? If I do require a Gatekeeper can I use the same router for both the Keyswitch and the Gatekeeper? This will be a closed network and will not interface with the PSTN or Internet.

Thanks

Re: Keyswitch and Gatekeeper in same router?

Why not to connect faxes to FXS ports of the "Keyswitch"?

* 1 - NM-2v module

* 2 - FXS modules

2610/2620 should be able to handle it.

I believe that will give you much better scalability and will be less expencive.

Yes, this should work (GK and KS on the same box). I'm not aware of any specific testing done with the ATA's, but rather other IOS-based gateways as H323 endpoints.
