I have customer in Sao Paulo, Brazil.2801 gw SRST site(CCM 4.1.3). Firstly I search for 2 days to get hold of a RJ45 to BNC, 75 Ohm, Unbalanced cable. I got the part eventually from a Cisco shop. This connects to a VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1. Something I saw in my configs is a show controller E1 says balanced:


OSANET01# sh controller e1

E1 0/2/0 is up.

Applique type is Channelized E1 - balance


controller E1 0/2/0

framing NO-CRC4

ds0-group 0 timeslots 1-15 type r2-digital r2-compelled ani

When dialling in I get the following on my debug:

And when dialling out, the phone ring once, and then goes engaged:

On dialing in:

The E1 R2 side of the circuit is disconnecting with a normal cause code. Hard to say without looking at painful E1 R2 debugs.


On dialing out:

Your H323 leg is disconnecting with no resources. Check DSP resources, transcoding, and codecs.


Good luck,

I just noticed a possible mistake. I see I have 2 ds0 groups. I have debug voip ccapi's which I could look through if I just knew what to look for. As you say it is just quit bulky. Could send it to you if I had your mail address:) DSP's? I have a PVDM 2-64, and a PVDM 2-32 in there. Can see what that should be an issue. I have 8 transcoding, 6 conferencing, and 250 software sessions sucessfully configured. Somethat bothers me is the fact that the cable is unbalanced, and that when I do a show controller E1, it say balanced. Could this be an issue.

There's not really a 'good' spot to look. You have to know the E1 R2 signaling in order to find out who's creating the disconnect condition - which isn't any fun because there are a TON of E1 R2 variations.


debug vpm signal is the one that's going show you the state changes on the E1 R2 circuit. I don't see these circuit very often at all, so it's hard to tell you.

True, but the good news is that in most cases, the circuits are digital/compelled, and tolerant of minor mistakes in customization. If you're interested in a couple of non-cisco docs detailing R2, let me know and I'll send these to you.

I would try 12.4(3j).

I've sent you the docs, I hope you will never need them.

Ola', for unbalanced E1 configure


controller E1 x/y

line-termination 75-ohm


Also remember to configure network-clock-participate and network-clock-select to give priority to this E1.


I don't think this is the cause of the problem however.

Is your carrier Telefonica in Sao Paulo?


I would suggest using just one ds0/CAS group:

ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-15,17-31 type r2-...


I would also suggest adding this to your voice-port:

bearer-cap Speech



Good luck.

lagos, very often E1 R2 circuits are split in two sets of channels, to ensure that outgoing and incoming calls never overlap, minimizing the possibility of glare.


Also, bearer-capability is effective on PRI circuits only. There is no bearer capability concept in E1 R2.
