I have a confession to make: I love gateways and gatekeepers. There’s something about diving into the command line that appeals to my personality. The black of the terminal… The blinking white cursor…
Truth be told, I didn’t always enjoy gateways. They were difficult to wrap my head around at first, but now they’re a piece of cake. I used to enjoy MGCP gateways for the ease of configuration, but now H.323 is my preferred method. Yes, there is a great deal more configuration when running H.323 or SIP, but you have much more control.
And control is something we engineers like to have (and keep)!
If you’re studying for the CVOICE lab or just generally interested in a concise reference on basic commands and theory surrounding gateways and gatekeepers, refer to this “Guru Guide” below.
