Gatekeeper Issue!!

Dear NetPros,

We have a customer who wants to link the head office with 150 Branches for Voice Communication. Now the head office will have a single gateway, single gatekeeper and a router while each of the 150 branches will have a router and a gateway with 4 voice ports. Now my queries are as given below:

a] Can we register 150 Gateways into one Gatekeeper?

b] If not and if we have the choice of only using a Software Gatekeeper then which is a robust and economical Software Gatekeeper Solution in the market?

c] Could anyone suggest the best optimal design for this scenario since we are still in the designing phase?

Thanx

Rushabh

Re: Gatekeeper Issue!!

I think up to 500 gateways can be suppored by a single gatekeeper.

Re: Gatekeeper Issue!!

To answer question a, almost any of our gatekeeper solutions can handle 150 gateways. The following link is a bit dated, but back in IOS 12.0, the 7200 router could handle up to 3000 endpoints and active calls.

To answer question c, the following document is a good starting point for designing an h323 network.
