Ingate VoIP Survival Module
In a Hosted PBX environment, the server situated in the service provider.s core network is in constant contact with . and dynamically sending data to . the Ingate Firewall® or Ingate SIParator® situated on the company LAN. The intelligence built into the hosted solution is automatically transferred to the local side, including settings and registrations. The Ingate CPE keeps track of updates and stores a mirror image of user settings.
In the event that contact with the hosted server is lost, the Ingate CPE will automatically detect the failure and make use of stored settings to ensure that communication methods are maintained. By using the mirror image of user settings, local calls within the domain are handled by the CPE. Any calls made to the outside will automatically be routed towards the SIP/PSTN gateway, given that there is SIP/PSTN gateway on the LAN. The CPE will automatically detect when the communication link is restored.
Ingate VoIP Survival is available now for all Ingate Firewall and SIParator products.
