Different device pools for different types of devices?
I'm watching Mark's videos on CIPT2 and healready said multiple times that he typically creates 2 device pools at a minimum for each site: one for phones & one for gateways. But he doesn't explain why and that's confusing me, I'm asking why...
If anyone could tell me why ? Which different parameter could force us to do that ?
I typically create 2 device pools for phones actually: 1 for phones using SRST, and 1 for phones not using SRST.
I have to explain that I only setup small single site deployements (with 200 phones maximum). So for customers who cannot afford a UCM cluster, I setup SRST on the H.323 gateway. I know that this is normally a feature used for branch offices in multi site deployments but let's say it offers a pseudo redundancy at a lower cost...
Does anyone knows about those 2 minimum Device Pools for phones and gateways ?
