Conference call , edge to edge traffic RRS feed

  • Question

  • A conference call host on home pool, 

    The traffic is from edge 2 to edge 2 public AV IP to conference server. 

    Can we force traffic from edge 2 to conference server through internal network?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    From your description above, did you mean the internal Lync users who homed at pool 2 (not the pool which schedule the conference) join the conference using the Edge Server but not through internal network?

    If it is the case, you need to make sure the networks of the Lync clients who homed at pool 2 could contact the FE Server on pool 1 without limitation (vice versa). Then when Lync client join the conference, it will prior to connect to the MCU Service on pool 1 firstly.

    Best Regards

  • The Edge server will always connect the conference pool through the internal NIC directly.

    If you have more than one pool, it deepened on, where the presenter is homed.

    The external Lync user will also always connect to the Edge server which is assigned to his home pool as media path.

    Yes, they using external network to join the conference, user homed at pool 2 the media traffic random go to edge 1 internet and through internal network ->  FE server pool 1.

    Or, they using external network to join the conference, user homed at pool 2 the media traffic will go to edge 2  internet --> go to edge 1 and  edge 1 through internal ->  FE server pool 1.

    We using wireshark by capture RTP packet , UDP to find the media traffic.

    If it is the case, you need to make sure the networks of the Lync clients who homed at pool 2 could contact the FE Server on pool 1 without limitation (vice versa). Then when Lync client join the conference, it will prior to connect to the MCU Service on pool 1 firstly.

    The Lync client is on external network and they can contact edge 1 and edge 2, Media first choice is edge 1 , if edge 1 failed to connect it will try edge 2 internet go to --->  edge 1 and internal network ---> go to FE server.
