H.323 Mobility Contribution

Hi, David and Orit:

David has a raised an interesting point.

I guess that we can start with an interworking GW approach first: SIP
Network and H.323 Network.

Replacing GK and SIP server with a super server is an interesting idea. One
way of looking into it may be that the supper server contains the properties
of the SIP-H.323 interworking GW.

Best regards,
Radhika R. Roy
