I've been playing around with CME and having remote phones that register over the WAN. It seems to work pretty well, except it has some limitations.
i seem to be able to force the remote phones to always use g.729 when calling to the PSTN or calling other phones (specifying the codec on the ephone), but when they dial into CUE they always use g.711.
Is it possible to force g.729 over the wan and then transcode to g.711 into CUE?
Not exactly what I mean though. Transcoding works because I can call out to the PSTN.
Because the remote phone registered over the WAN to CME, it still thinks that Unity Express is locally connected so it wont try and use g.729 over the WAN and then transcode to 711. It will simply use 711 over the WAN, which eats up about 92k of bandwidth as opposed to 40 odd.
now what i want is to make phones at remote branch(2800) to register at the main site(3800). and all calls should go through main site(3800)router for that we have a lease line between these routers of 128kbps. i have proper connectivity between two sites as i can reach all IP address in other side.
your suggestions will be highly regarded.
now the phones are getting up at remote branchas if i give them the TFTP of the local router(2800)but what i want is for the phones to get lines from main office.as we dont have E1 here.
Well as I said before you just put the phones in the branch office and power them. If the TFTP address on the DHCP server is right they will register at main office CCME. Config the ephone as above mentioned. 128K is very little so remember con configure rtp compression on the serial interface if you have them.
These are the paths to get to each CCX logs through CLI. They may be helpful if you are having issues accessing RTMT or downloading logs through it.
If you want to download them you have to prefix "file get " and you can add one of the options (re...
