Hello,

MSS supports load balancing and mid-call failover through the use of SIP Load Balancer, but what happens if SIP Load Balancer fails? what would be the recommended architecture to support HA of this node?

I can only think of one solution, and it's using a kind of dynamic DNS and two instances of SIP Load Balancer, but I would like to hear opinions

Thanks and regards,
Isaac

You're right, the usual solution is using a DNS-based approach.
Many instances of SIP Load Balancer resolved by DNS SRV lookups.
You can check this article which gives a good overview of the different techniques available :
