CCME and CUE problem

Unanswered Question
Feb 20th, 2009


We are experiencing problems with single CCME and CUE configuration.

We have one H.323 voip trunk to local ISP with audio codec of G711alaw. Unfortunately our CUE uses G711ulaw, so incoming calls to CUE are dropped with cause code 41 (or 65 - Bearer capability not implemented). I made some test and with G711ulaw end-to-end everything is OK.

Our ISP cannot provide us Voip service using G711ulaw, so I tried to configure local transcoding.

Using show dspfarm all I can see that transcoding profile is UP and ASSOSIATED.

But incoming calls don't use this transcoding resource, so they are still dropped.

Any suggestion to resolve this issue?

Does Unity Express support G711alaw?

Thank you

I have this problem too.

Hi Svilen,

can you do a 'debug voip dialpeer', figure out your incoming and outgoing dial peers, and post those and your IOS version?


sistefanov Fri, 02/20/2009 - 08:34

Thank you again :-)

Please find requested information attached to this post.

Incoming dial-peer 1:

dial-peer voice 1 voip

description incomming from ISP

translation-profile incoming ISP-IN

voice-class codec 1

voice-class h323 1

incoming called-number 0243419T

dtmf-relay rtp-nte cisco-rtp h245-alphanumeric

fax protocol pass-through g711alaw

Try taking the voice-class codec off, and either setting a hard g711alaw or g729r8. There were some IOS versions that had problems with that configuration.


sistefanov Fri, 02/20/2009 - 08:47

Unfortunately it doesn't work again with g711alaw set up on incoming dial-peer:

dial-peer voice 1 voip

Configuration looks like it should work, you can try a 'no sccp' 'sccp' to reset the transcoder.

sistefanov Fri, 02/20/2009 - 09:08

Thank you,

I tried to reset sccp, but calls are still dropped.

As I said early, transcoding resource is registered/associated and I beleive it is working (at this time I can't test it).

I want to do more or less the same thing ...

Did you finally succeed to configure your router/transcoder ?

Thanks you in advance,

I have observed that to allow transcoding between H323 to H323, you may have to configure the following.

voice service voip

allow-connections h323 to h323

You may also have to hairpin the calls via a loopback address.
