Least Cost Routing

Hello Experts,

We have three sites, one in Boston(MA), one in Menlo Park(CA) and one in London (UK). I have to implement the Least Cost Routing for all long distance calls and have no idea how it works and how I can do that. Let's say we want to call from Boston to Paris, would it be least expensive if we route the call to London first and then send it to Paris? Or just a direct dial from Boston to Paris? These are the things that I am try to figure out but don't know how. We are using Cisco CallManager 4.1 and Unity 4.1. Could you please help?

Thanks,

BT

Re: Least Cost Routing

a good leastCostRouting or , toll-bypass, could be as follows:

all calls go out the closest GATEWAY near them.

for example, if boston needed to call europe, the call could be routed VoIP over your WAN to london and then placed from the london gateway(s).

if CA needs to call MA then the call goes out the Boston VoIP gateway(s).

this can be done with multiple routePatterns. each selecting a specific gateway to use based on the destination of the call. (or course, these gateways have to be available to call manager)
