Delay @ beginning of a call (CUCM 7, MGCP VG)

Unanswered Question
Jun 27th, 2010

Hi guys,

we have some trouble with cut voice at the first 2-3 seconds at the beginning of a call to pstn (or other pbx).

The user didn't hear the pstn (or pbx)-site user at the first 3 seconds.

We use CUCM 7.1.3 with different mgcp Voicegateways (2851, 2811 and 3845) latest 12. ios, with 6961, 7975 and 7921.

At some deployments we are directly connected to the pstn over e1 (32 chanels) at other location we are behind an other pbx (also e1 trunks).

QOS is everywhere configured, and we do not have much traffic, and inside calls works fine.

Also we tried the command voice rtp recv-send, without any improvement.

Have someone any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards


I have this problem too.

what is the switch type?

do you have a debug isdn q931

I would open a TAC case to verify when we get the Connect from isdn all channels from MGCP GW to CUCM and from CUCM to SCCP/SIP phones r open inmediatly and try to isolate the issue.

Ideally for a single call reproducing the issue with no other call activity:
- CCM detailed All trace fields enabled
- Sniffer trace of ipphone and gw
- Debugs on gw:
deb isdn q931
deb mgcp all
deb voice rtp packet
- show tech of gw

the matter was the CUCM-MTP-Ressource, which was assosiated to every device...

the RTP stream flowed trough the cucm, and not between the endpoints.

After removing the MTP-Ressource, the delay was off.
