Configuring a Failover Route

Office 2007

Extending the previous example, if an administrator wants to define a failover route that may be used in case the Dallas-GW1 is brought down for maintenance, or is unavailable, the following example illustrates the required configuration change.

  • In the previous example, a phone usage of GlobalPSTNHopoff is added after the DallasUsers phone usage in the Dallas Calling Policy.
  • This enables calls with the Dallas Calling policy to use routes that are configured for the GlobalPSTNHopoff if a route for DallasUsers phone usage is unavailable.
