I have a Peplink Balance 580 and hosted VOIP (VirtualPBX) that the router correctly identifies as SIP.
I have 3 cable lines and 1 T1. I want all SIP traffic routed through the T1, with failover to one of the cables. I want all other traffic routed through the cables.
I initially set up Outbound rules, using Priority, to achieve this, and it seems to work most of the time but not all of the time, and lately it seems to fail more often. I changed the Rules not long ago to use the phone’s MAC address instead of IP address and I now wonder if that’s why I’m having more trouble.
Is there another way, a better way?
Also, using Priority Outbound rules worked fairly well as long as all devices had a rule. When a new device was added to the network, or we have a customer in house (rare but it happens) with a cell phone, they inevitably end up on my T1 causing my voice traffic to bog down. What’s the best way to prevent this?
Thanks for any suggestions!
