Hi there. I have a CUCM 6.1 cluster with 10 remote MGCP sites. To save costs, what i was wanting to do is put in a translation pattern for each sites full number range to their DN:-
0207104XXXX to 77XXXX
This would cut costs for all sites who are in bad habit of calling full numbers rather than DN's.
I see an issue though....If a remote site, say London again, has rtheir WAn go down and are forced into SRST mode, then when someone in CUCM Cluster calls their full number, it will be trabslateed to their DN and then go to voicemial because phones will not be registered in CUCM.
How can we get around the GW atate to ensure the call is routed (and translated or not) correctly?
All help is uber appreciated :-)
Here are a few ways I can think of to handle this:
1. As you suggested, forward calls to a different number that would hit a different route pattern and be sent out a gateway.
2. Forward calls to the same number, but configure a calling search space for Forward Unregistered that has access to a route pattern that sends the call out a gateway.
3. Configure the Forward Unregistered destination as another number at the branch, such as the main phone number assuming you don't have this translated as well.
I think your original suggestion would work well.
Hope this helps.
