how to force a video connection?

Unanswered Question
Jun 16th, 2007

We have a mixed environment with a CCM 5 and an old PBX (ericsson BP250) with a qsig connection.

When a videocall between Cisco Phones is forwarded on an Ericsson phone, it is forced to be an audiocall (qsig doesn't support video calls)

If it's forwarded again on a Cisco phone, how can I force the video connection?


I have this problem too.

Are you stating that a video call gets transferred to the PBX and then back to CCM? Of course the video goes away, you transferred the call through an analog only PBX integration.

Even with Q.SIG path replacement working correctly, this may not work, but is worth a try. Be sure that path replacement for tromboned call routing is enabled on the PBX and in CCM (global settings, route patterns, translation patterns, partitions, CSSs)...

Are the video endpoints SCCP (skinny, i.e. Cisco, Tandberg, Sony) or H323?

What partition are the phones and PBX trunks in?

What CSS are the phone extensions in?
