Foip question

Good morning.

This may be a stupid question but i must ask. We have a quadrant fax solution in place today. Made up of a primary and slave server. each one is connected via a 3845 GW by t1. now if one fax server goes down the slave would pick up the traffic, same if one of the 3845's went down the other would recieve the traffic.

My question is they are proposing a VM soulution of FOIP, Dialogic sr140 technology. I am having a hard time grasping how fail over would work. Since now the dial peers point to a port within their own GW..I assume now the peers will be directed at an IP, And should the VM fax server fail, how would you direct traffic to the secondary IP within the 3845??

any adice thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you

Re: Foip question

Create two VoIP dial-peers, preferrably over UDP (TCP adds delay during a failure since the TCP handshake needs to timeout as well as the SIP INVITE) but either will work. When the router doesn't receive a response to the SIP INVITE it'll proceed to the next dial-peer match.

sip-ua

  retry invite 2

  ! Default: 6
  ! IOS will only try another dial-peer if this is set to <= 4

This delay will happen while it waits for the first dial-peer will happen on every call. If the Dialogic supports SIP OPTIONS PING you could add this command to the dial-peer:

voice-class sip options-keepalive

This will send keepalives and when the Dialogic stops responding IOS will busyout the dial-peer until it gets an answer. This way calls will immediately skip to the second dial-peer.

Re: Foip question

Jonathan,

many thanks as always..dreaded dial peers. my router experience lacks so...so i will as i do now have a dial peer pots, and then i would have 2 entries,dil peer voip, each different ip's, in each router to achieve failover??

Thank you again, and this must be a common configuration for failover ??

Re: Foip question

Dial-peers aren't so bad. They're much easier to teach than building out CUCM.

Here's an example (copy/pasted with small tweaks to make it generic):

Re: Foip question

ok you'll regret answering this post but.

i have attached one of the 3845 configs..since we have a bunch of did's involved..will this be a rebuild, really, of the 3845 dial peers or is there a way to just change the peers to reflect an ip..if we were to take 8890 for example..it has a peer/pots and peer of dial range voip..

would it be delete EVERY entry or modify through. it seems like a lot of configuration and i want to plan accordingly.

thanks again Jonathan
