What do this mean to me you may say ? Read on...
By using our Mobicents SIP Load Balancer and the new shiny Mobicents SIP Servlets Clustering with let's say 2 nodes A and B, you'll be able to execute the following call flow :
- Start a call that goes through the Load Balancer and is handled by node A (the sip session and sip application session as well as their Serializable attributes are going to be replicated on node B)
- kill node B and wait that it is completely stopped
- Hangup the call, the tear down of the call will be handled correctly by node B with all the session attributes that were present on node A available on node B.
You can follow the step by step examples described in the Mobicents Sip Servlets Failover Documentation
Please note that this feature is still limited to UAS type of applications and that support is coming for Proxy, B2BUA and Converged type of applications in the following releases.
Feel free to post you feedback and to contact us if you'd like to contribute.
