Technical Summary
 
The base Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) specification (RFC3435) allows 
endpoints to be re-directed one endpoint at a time.  This document provides 
extensions in the form of a new MGCP package that provides mechanisms for 
redirecting and resetting a group of endpoints.  It also includes the ability to
more accurately re-direct endpoints by allowing a list of Call Agents to be 
specified in a preferred order.
