Nodes are your gateways for facilitating calls, providing Internet access via WiFi, sending messages, or supplying any other type of service to end users. A node communicates with the billing engine asking for authentication or authorization and sending accounting information to it.

To add your gateway as a node, fill in the node details and click Save.

Node creation panel

Name

Link copied to clipboard

Type the name by which you will recognize this node in the system.

Node ID

Link copied to clipboard

Type the IP address or the hostname of the gateway by which it will be identified in the system. If you define the hostname, make sure the value you enter here matches the “hostname” parameter configured on the gateway, since that value is returned from this node in the h323-gw-id attribute, and the ability to match these values with data in billing significantly simplifies troubleshooting.

IP

Link copied to clipboard

Type the IP address of the gateway. This address is present in the radius data as the NAS-IP-Address attribute, and is used to identify which node sent the request.

Manufacturer

Link copied to clipboard

Select the manufacturing company of your gateway.

Link copied to clipboard

Select the type of the gateway. The types depend on the gateway manufacturer.
