SIP Cluster Components
The SIP Cluster includes several core and supporting components:
- SIP Server provides the hardware-to-software interface for calls.
- SIP Proxy acts as SIP registrar and hides the SIP Server infrastructure from SIP endpoints.
- SIP Feature Server handles voicemail, provides the user interface for configuring and using dial plans.
- Orchestration Server and Universal Routing Server provide voice-routing capabilities.
- Stat Server provides support for the reporting of interactions in the cluster environment.
- Historical Reporting in the SIP Cluster solution provides detailed data, analytics, and reports about activity in your entire contact center, through use of several Genesys products:
- Interaction Concentrator
- Genesys Info Mart
- Reporting and Analytics Aggregates (RAA)
- Genesys Interactive Insights (GI2)
- Web Services and Applications (GWS) is a set of REST APIs and user interfaces that provide a web-based client interface to access Genesys services. Workspace Web Edition is the required desktop for this solution. The Genesys softphone or a Genesys supported SIP hardphone can be used for voice interactions with the agent. The agent can log into any data center as he or she is effectively logging into a single switch.
- Outbound Contact is an automated system that is used to create, modify, and run outbound dialing campaigns/dialing sessions in which agents interact with customers.
- Genesys Mobile Services (GMS) controls and exposes the Genesys API functionality to external applications by REST APIs, and provides critical callback services.
- Genesys Interaction Recording is a call recording solution, screen capture, and Quality Monitoring (QM) tool utilized to store, manage, and playback recorded voice conversations and screen captures, as well as provide quality assurance.

What is a SIP Cluster Node
A SIP Cluster node instance is a set of components running on a computer host. An HA pair of SIP Cluster instances forms a SIP Cluster node, which represents a scalable unit of the SIP Cluster.
Reference configuration of the SIP Cluster node contains the following components:
- SIP Server
- Stat Server
- Interaction Concentrator
All components are deployed with corresponding redundancy. To increase call process capacity, deploy several SIP Cluster nodes.
