[SR-Users] Is Media Release (signaling only) possible in Kamailio?

 Response from the carrier matches your description. Looks like their Inbound carrier is latching but the outbound carrier is not and yes they recommended handling the NAT on my end.
That said, whats my options here. Is the native rtpproxy scalable? or is it better to go with a Freeswitch farm to handle media proxying. We are looking @ holding in upwards of 10K UAs on one instance of Kamailio. So whats the best architecture or that ?

 Re-read the piece of the article related to "RTP latching":


In order for RTP to reach a NAT'd endpoint, all other things being
equal, the other party has to do RTP latching. This is true of both
inbound and outbound calls. Failure to do it will result in one-way
audio where the NAT'd party can transmit but cannot receive. 

As far as identifying who is doing that latching, that's not clear from
your description. Some carrier media gateways do it, in which case you
can get away with not having an RTP relay in the middle. Most carrier
media gateways are designed for wholesale-ish peering and don't, as a
matter of policy, but some do. Or you could have some near-end solutions
at work of which you're not aware. 

It's also not clear whether you've definitively removed all rtpproxy
invocation from your Kamailio config, in both directions. But if you
haven't, I'd start there, and given your statement that you don't really
want to be in series to the RTP path, figure out what exactly doesn't
work. Then add rtpproxy as necessary. Beware the distinction between
inbound and outbound call flows.
