What is centralized media processing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Lync Trunk Configuration has the Centralized media processing check box.

    What is centralized media processing?  (Please don't quote the MS-speak ~ "Media processing that is centralized" - duh).

    How do I determine whether I want/need to enable it or not?

    What is the impact of it enabled?

    What is the impact of it not enabled?

  • Media bypass can improve voice quality by reducing latency, needless translation, possibility of packet loss, and the number of points of potential failure.

    Enabling Centralized Media Processing is a useful feature in that it allows the CircuitID Gateway to handle as much of the SIP responsibility as possible.

  • If you will use media bypass you need centralize media processing. It means that the media termination point (gateway) has the same IP as the signaling termination.

    technet description:

    "Select the Centralized media processing check box if there is a well-known media termination point (for example, a PSTN gateway where the media termination has the same IP as the signaling termination). Media bypass is only supported if this option is selected."

  • Yeah, I read all that.  But what does checking the box do?  I can find no explanation for that.

  • How would I know if I should or should not enable Centralized Media Processing for any given media.  I have never seen that in any documentation for my gateways.

  • Hello:

    I had an issue with a SIP trunk that did not support media
    bypass (and was not enabled) however audio did not cut through for 1-3 seconds
    after call was completed.

    Enabling "centralized media processing" fixed this problem!
