1 Basic Concepts

1.1 Registration Agent

The Registration Agent is a feature that performs REGISTERs on behalf of other users.

In some use cases, using the Registration Agent may be necessary to have a separate entity perform the REGISTERs on behalf of users. For example:

  • When users cannot register themselves.
  • To separate internal and external networks in Demarcation Point scenarios
The Registration Agent is only involved with the registrations it initiates. If the Registration Agent is used, its REGISTERs are routed to the Mediatrix unit via the registration_ca Call Agent.

Top

1.2 registration_ca Call Agent

The registration_ca Call Agent is used to route the registrations issued by the Registration Agent.

The registration_ca Call Agent should not be used for other purposes. The registrations issued by the Registration Agent must be routed from the registration_ca to the Call Agent facing the destination Sip registrar (typically wan_ip_trunk_ca _ca or secondary_ip_trunk_ca ).

The registration is routed using the User Name, Password and Domain to build the AOR and the R-URI . The Contact is the contact header of the registration, it should contain the IP-address or FQDN of the Mediatrix unit.

4 DGW Documentation

Mediatrix units are supplied with an exhaustive set of documentation.

Mediatrix user documentation is available on the Documentation Portal at http://documentation.media5corp.com

Several types of documents were created to clearly present the information you are looking for. Our documentation includes:

  • Release notes : Generated at each GA release, this document includes the known and solved issues of the software. It also outlines the changes and the new features the release includes.
  • Configuration notes : These documents are created to facilitate the configuration of a specific use case. They address a configuration aspect we consider that most users will need to perform. However, in some cases, a configuration note is created after receiving a question from a customer. They provide standard step-by-step procedures detailing the values of the parameters to use. They provide a means of validation and present some conceptual information. The configuration notes are specifically created to guide the user through an aspect of the configuration.
  • Technical bulletins : These documents are created to facilitate the configuration of a specific technical action, such as performing a firmware upgrade.
