How do I have to do to configure E1's using MGCP on a catalyst 6513 with a "WS-SVC-CMM" module?


I have this problem too.

Device -> gateway -> Add New -> Cisco Catalyst 6000 E1 Voip Gateway -> Next

the config on the module is almost the same as with a T1, it just changes the voice-port number that gets created and the pri group timeslots as well

When I add such a gateway in the CCM admin, it requires a MC address.

What's this MAC address and how could I find it?

Sorry, my bad, you need to select when adding the GW Communication Media Module and not CAT 6000 E1. The option i mentioned was for a 6608 and not for a CMM. if it was a 6608 then it would be the MAC from the port you will use

Hi Francois,

As nicely noted by Jaime, the majority of cnfig is done on CCM itself :) Here are some related docs;
