Recommended Signalling & Media Protocol

Hi,

In one of our customer's setup the Voice GWs will be in the DMZ zone , and CCM & CRS/IVR server will be in the intranel(LAN) zone.

What is the most recommended signalling & Medial protocol which most customers would use across firewalls?

thanks

Re: Recommended Signalling & Media Protocol

Hi,

For gateway protocols:

SIP - newest, requires more understanding, quite a bit of configuration

H323 - most mature, most support, have to implement entire dial plan on gateway

MGCP - very easy, CUCM controlled gateway, only 3-4 lines of configuration on gateway, pretty good.

In general - if you let the correct ports through, any of them should be fine.

Use the commands:

show ip nbar port | i h323

show ip nbar port | i sip

show ip nbar port | i mgcp

These will tell you the ports you need on your firewall.

hth,

nick
