Hi guys, i'm trying to implement this design but failed. Please help me to clarify what had went wrong.


I have a running CME 4.0 and it is working fine. What i'm going to do is pass 2 dn to IPC Alliance system. Due to insufficient card slot, I've purchased another router with VWIC-1MFT. The problem is controller E1 that i've configured in router B wont establish (down). I'm using 1-2,4-5 connector and I've tried with loopback test on router and it works fine.

router A (forward the 2 dn to router B)

dial-peer voice 6666 voip
description **forward to voice_gw**
destination-pattern 6666
session target ipv4:
dial-peer voice 6600 voip
description **forward to voice_gw**
destination-pattern 6600
session target ipv4:

sh dial-peer voice summary

6666   voip  up   up             6666               0  syst ipv4:

6600   voip  up   up             6600               0  syst ipv4:

router B (grab dn from router A and pass them to IPC)

Does the IPC system need to be connected with a straigth or cross-over E1/T1 cable? If cross-over, the pin out is 1-4 2-5. It's worth a try if you can make the cable. Also, check the framing and line code configuration and make sure they match with the IPC system.

yes it is using the crossover cable, framing and linecode is match as well. i was thinking whether the setup shouldnt be done this way  or there is a better way to do this using same hardwares.

Is the pinout for the cross-over cable 1-4 2-5?
