RSVP Agent Configuration
Does the RSVP agent need to be in the data path of the call in order to be invoked?
The issue I am trying to solve is customer has and MPLS gateway and a voice gateway. The core switch at each location is the default gateway for all the phones. If the call is destined for the PSTN the call goes to the PSTN Gateway, if the call is destined for the WAN it goes through the MPLS gateway. I do not have access to the MPLS gateways thus I am wondering if I can setup the RSVP agent on the PSTN gateway even thought the call never goes through that gateway.
In my mind it should work because the agent is just keeping track of call counts and deducting that from available bandwidth, in reality my efforts have proven to be less than successful.
Option 1: Reconfigure fhe network so that the PSTN gateway is the default gateway for my phones.The calls from soft clients ont he Data VLAN will fail do to no RSVP agent.
Option 2: Configure an MTP on the MPLS gateways. These gateways do not have and DSPs in them so I don't think I can do this.
Are there any options I am missing?
