I implemented a 2821 voice gateway so we could test our PRI connectivity to our provider. We do not have our call manager server or phones yet, but wondered if I could simulate a call directly from the router itself. Please let me know if this is possible.
Thank you in advance.
Yes, it's possible.
You'll need to configure the PRI controller as you would for a CME type install.
Boot it up, and if you have the correct hardware you should see a T1 or E1 controller.
If you don't see a controller, and you have a T1/E1 type, you may need to enter something like:
card type e1 0 0 <--- or t1, whatever's appropriate
isdn switch-type xxx (whatever you use locally)
pri-group timeslots 1-30
(no 'service mgcp' means it will terminate locally)
You may need to set crc off, or whatever else you would do for a local PRI.
Do a show isdn status, to verify you have MULTIPLE_FRAME_ESTABLISHED
If you do, then create a dial-peer to use the PRI:
dial-peer voice 101 pots
Then you can this command to start a test call:
