Forwarding mode (tunnel/bridge) considerations with VOIP

Hello,

 

I'm planning a VOIP-focused deployment, and had some questions around the limitations of each forwarding mode.

 

I've been looking around the forums here for a while but can only find very outdated information as to what is/isn't supported for each forwarding mode. Is there a more up-to-date summary available that anyone can point me to?

 

Many thanks,

If you want detailed voice statistics, I would not consider bridge mode. There is very little visibility in that mode.

Thanks Colin. I know Lync/SFB Heuristics isn't supported on bridge mode either (but we aren't just doing Lync). Other than statistics/visibility, are there are any direct, service-affecting downsides to bridge mode? The customer may push back otherwise, as tunnel mode will require more controllers to be purchased, or for traffic to "trombone" the WAN links.
