I am thinking if re-invite will interfere accounting.
Please help me to figure it out:
Phone A is registered at asterisk and calls a gateway. If the gateway
allows re-invite than the rtp would go directly from phone A to the
gateway, while the sip messages are still going through Asterisk.
Asterisk will be informed when the call ended.
If it is a postpaid accounting, just bill the customer, however, how is
it for a pre-paid (calling card user)?
I think Asterisk will have no power to turn off the call from A to the
Even more, if the gateway would allow to end a call and continue with a
new call, the new call would not be billed (or would it)?
I guess the solution must be re-invite=no
However, re-invite=no means that each call is going with rtp also
through my server, what means for a remote phone, I have to provide for
both legs the bandwidth.
Would here a rtpproxy or mediaproxy help? If how and why?
