10 Call Fallback For IP Calls If the destination is not found: Send to auto attendant (alternate H.323 address) OR Send out the local GW or to a specific service Call Realization! A destination will be searched for…
11 H.235 v2 Security Endpoint Support Authentication and Integrity verification Verifies that the sender and receiver of a message are, in fact, who they say they are Verifies that data has not been altered in an unauthorized manner Whenever an endpoint sends a message to the Gatekeeper, the endpoint encrypts the message using the password. The Gatekeeper receiving the message authenticates the message using the same password. If one of the parties does not have the correct password, the authentication fails and the transaction is rejected.

13 Alternate Gatekeepers allow the endpoint to register and call the destination when the original GK goes down. This is accomplished with a Hot standby GK that receives al information from the operating GK. It is knows if the operating GK goes down, and automatically assumes the GK's IP and full operation. When the original GK goes up, it then becomes the slave of the now operating GK. Alternate Gatekeeper Solutions Built in Mirroring Information to Hot Standby Slave-Master Routine
