CUCM or CUCME? The dialed number will need to match a route pattern and/or dial peer, so you may need an access code such as 9 to match your existing dial plan.

Hope this helps.

We use a CUCM 6.0 when I create the translation pattern this is what i have, along with the rest of the configuration for PLAR, but when I pickup the hand set of the test phone it just give me an intercept message that the call can't not be dialed.

Hi Wilson,

To dial the number 918003245647 you must have a route pattern in your CUCM. Put that route pattern in a partition, say plar_test.

Put this null translation pattern(posted above) in another partition say tp_plar. The IP phone which will be used for plar test call should have a CSS which should have partition tp_plar in it i.e. basically the phone should have access to the translation pattern. Now in the translation pattern config page that you have posted, change the CSS to one which has partition plar_test in it but does not have partition tp_plar in it.. Hence the bottomline is that the IP phone should have access to the null translation pattern and the null translation pattern should have access to the route pattern for routing the call out.

Make the above changes and try a test call. Post the results.

Hope that helps

May I know whether PLAR to an external number can be possible to configure on CME? The current version of mine should be CME 7.1. Many thanks!!!



Brandon Buffin Wed, 06/27/2012 - 11:20

Yes, try this:

ephone-dn 1
number 100

ephone 1
button 1:1
autoline 1

Hope this helps.


nicolewonghy Tue, 07/03/2012 - 09:00

Thanks Brandon. May I have a further question is, in case I have total 5 x CO lines, but I just want to limit the plar connections to up to 3 only, is it possible?

Say, I configured five ephone with plar-enable, but I just want max only three of them can get the CO connectivity, is it okay?



Brandon Buffin Thu, 07/05/2012 - 07:42


Here's one way to accomplish this. Set the trunk to use an access code different from your normal code. Then configure dial peers to use the code to allow access to only three of the FXO ports.

ephone-dn 1
number 100
trunk 19

ephone 1
button 1:1
autoline 1

dial-peer voice 19 pots

destination-pattern 19T

port 1/0/0

dial-peer voice 19 pots

destination-pattern 19T

port 1/0/1

dial-peer voice 19 pots

destination-pattern 19T

port 1/0/2

Hope this helps.
