We have some problems with both Linksys PAP and SPA 3102.
During an inbound call on a PAP, no matter of the phone brand or model used, the phone rings a first time, shorter than usual. The phone stops ringing shortly and appears not being in the state of an incoming call anymore. After this short pause, the telephone rings again with the normal cadence until the call is taken
the call cannot be catch between first and second ring (as the phone isn’t in an incoming call state). Furthermore, the caller id is not displayed on the phone.
Obviously, it’s an ring cadence setting and caller id method issue, unfortunately, it’s very difficult to find the correct settings to use PAP or 3102 in France.
With the SPA3102, we have some trouble to get the Caller Id from the FXO port during an incoming call. Some inbound calls (about, 1/6 calls) are hanged up after just 1 second. Should be a problem with the disconnect tone setting.
We have the same problem than with the PAP for the phone plugged into the FXS port. Again, it seems to be related to the Ring cadence and caller id method settings.
Thanks to the admin guides of PAP and SPA3102, we did understand the ring cadence and others settings « language » but even with the France-Télécom (french telco) technical documentation, we cannot find any working parameters.
Would it be possible to publish a documentation or send me the parameters for the whole « regional » tab of the web configuration interface (dial tones, impedance, ring tones species, ring cadences…) for use in France ?
Please see below the tones for France. Impedance is as indicated by Patrick. Please bear in mind that you need to configure the disconnect tone in the SPA3102 FXO port in order to terminate the call properly. It is the same as the reorder tone highlighted below.
- Caller ID for France is ETSI FSK DTAS
I have the following settings for France:
Impedance: 270+750||150nF [215+1000||137 and 290+925||165nF are not supported]
If the above does not help, perhaps I can help you arrive at the correct settings.
The SPA3102's FXS port is similar to the SPA9000's FXS ports.
The SPA3102's FXO port is similar to the SPA400's FXO port.
You could review the configurations of a SPA9000 and SPA400 that are regionalized for France, and use these settings for your PAP and SPA3102 devices.
If you don't have access to a SPA9000/SPA400, contact me off list at paborn at cisco and I'll configure some systems and send you the configuration files.
