I have a question for anyone out there with information regarding load balancing inbound calls using SER.
What I am looking to do is have a ‘farm’ of 10 asterisk servers which will process inbound IVR calls. I want to set up a single device which my provider will send the initial INVITE request to. I want that device to basically just forward the INVITE request to one of my 10 asterisk servers. After the invite is forwarded i simply want the initial device to step out of the SIP and Media path. It would look something like this
GATEWAY —> INVITE —> Load Balancer —> INVITE --> Asterisk Server
while the response would look like (load balancer out of path)
Asterisk Server —> TRYING —> GATEWAY
I am currently acheiving this goal using a Foundry ServerIron 4G which provides SIP loadbalancing, but I want to make the switch to something i have more control over.
Does it sound like SER or OpenSER is a good fit for this?
