This article relates to Cisco TelePresence Content Server.
Q. Using a gatekeeper with the Content Server
A. It is not strictly necessary to have a gatekeeper configured for the TANDBERG Content Server. However using a gatekeeper enables much more versatile calling and recording behavior. Specifically, if you have a gatekeeper configured for the Tandberg Content Server, you can specify which recording Template to use for inbound calls by dialing the H.323, E.164 or SIP Alias configured against this template.
If no gatekeeper is used, recordings made of inbound calls will only use the default Recording alias.
What is the difference between registering the Content Server as a Terminal or a Gateway?
When registered as a Terminal, the maximum number of registrations allowed to the gatekeeper from a Content Server is 25. This also means that the maximum number of Recording aliases is 25. When registered as a Gateway, the maximum number of Recording aliases rises to 250. See the online help topic, Configuring site settings, for more information.
