This is taken from a recent post by William Bell.. I quote it here for you..

You use the backslash ("\") character in a route pattern when you  want CUCM to treat a wildcard pattern as a literal character. The "+" is  a wildcard pattern that matches one or more occurrences of the preceding digit or wildcard value.

So,

9+11 would match 911, 9911, 999911, etc.

If you want to treat the "+" as a literal character then you need to use \+.

* is a valid digit..as anyother digit you dial

X-is any number range from 0-9

Hence in your example..*11\+1.289201XXXX, you can dial the following numbers

*11+12892010000 - *11+12892019999
