H.323 Peering is an important building block for SBC Core H.323 service provisioning. It represents a static H.323 interworking element.

During the H.323 carrier peering deployment, each H.323 peer is identified by the IP address of the peering VoIP network elements. There are only limited numbers of the peering VoIP network elements involved. It is also possible that a single gateway owned by the peering carrier and the SBC counter-part acts as the single point of peering for the deployment.

Asterisk (star) indicates the fields are mandatory.


You can use the default Address Context or create a new Address Context in the Navigator.

 Prerequisites for the workflow H.323 peering are:

  • Address context
  • IP Interface group
  • IP Interface


This section provides a high-level understanding of H.323 Peer Provisioning.
