Last Modified: 2012-05-05

I am evaluationg to buy a line conentrator for POTS that registers each line using the H.248 or MEGACO protocol. I want to connect this using asterisk but I am not sure of the compatibility of this protocol. Can somebody confirm if asterisk will register H.248 clients.

Thank you for the info. I will take that in considerations when I purchase the devices

H248 is not MGCP, it is Megaco. Both are gateway control protocols, MGCP is an IETF spefication and H.248 is from ITU. I don't thin Asterisk supports H.248 currently.
