This chapter covered all the required tasks needed to add phones and gateways to a CallManager system. Four methods to add phones to the system were discussed: manual registration, Auto-registration, BAT, and TAPS.
After phones were added, the addition of four types of gateways was discussed. A description and an installation example of H.323, MGCP, Non-MGCP, and Inter-Cluster Trunk gateways were provided.
The chapter should help you feel comfortable with the task of adding phones and gateways. Because it is not possible to include step-by-step instructions for every possible type of phone and gateway in this book, the examples given were based on widely deployed models. These instructions should serve as a good guide to help you deploy most other models as well.
Now that the phones and gateways are deployed, a dial plan is needed. A dial plan is used to determine how calls are routed. Let's move onto the next chapter and explore dial plans.
