Using routing profiles

A routing profile defines the characteristics of the call legs in a gateway call. It allows you to customize inbound and outbound call legs, such as the audio and video codecs supported, the protocols to negotiate, and the call mode to use. You can assign a profile to a specific route in the routing table or to several routes. A default profile is provided with the video gateway.

Routing profiles are configurable from the Provisioning menu in the Vision Console.

The characteristics of a routing profile are categorized into several groups: General, PSTN, SIP, Dialog, and Video Call Completion to Voice (VCCV).

The following topics provide more information about routing profiles:
