CUBE and Transcoding

Hello all,

I wanted to configure a CUBE to do transcoding on the box so I put together this config from various docs on CCO:

interface GigabitEthernet0/1

ip address 10.212.1.7 255.255.255.0

duplex full

speed 100

no mop enabled

h323-gateway voip interface

!

voice-card 0

dspfarm

dsp services dspfarm

!

sccp local GigabitEthernet0/1

sccp ccm 10.212.1.7 identifier 1 priority 1

sccp

!

sccp ccm group 1

associate ccm 1 priority 1

associate profile 2 register XCODE123456

codec g729abr8

codec g729br8

maximum sessions 10

associate application SCCP

!

!

telephony-service

ip source-address 10.212.1.7 port 2000

sdspfarm units 1

sdspfarm transcode sessions 10

sdspfarm tag 1 XCODE123456

network-locale GB

create cnf-files version-stamp 7960 Jul 07 2008 14:42:17

max-conferences 8 gain -6

transfer-system full-consult

The problem is that the transcoder is not registering. Here is the Show SCCP output:-

cube-1#sh sccp

Any ideas?

Re: CUBE and Transcoding

To do the local registration of transcoding for CUBE/IP2IP gateway, you need to register to the local IP address using SCCP version 5 as previously advised. The other critical setting you need is to define a 'max-dn' and a 'max-ephone' under the telephony service, otherwise the registration won't work.

Here is a working config (IOS is 12.4.15T5). It may take around 60 seconds for the transcoder to register.

Here is a working config that used version 4.0....Though this was used for conferencing, I believe the config is similar...

You need to use a version higher than 3.3...Below is the config

Re: CUBE and Transcoding

The version command is missing on your sccp config...Depending on the callmanager version you are using..if you are using ccm 6 use ver 5.0.1 or do version ? to see the versions supported by your voice gateway

example below:

sccp local GigabitEthernet0/0.33

sccp ccm 10.33.2.20 identifier 11 version 5.0.1

sccp ccm 10.33.2.21 identifier 10 version 5.0.1

sccp

Re: CUBE and Transcoding

I think you may have missed my point. I want to do transcoding on the box, in otherwords the transcoding service needs to register with the telephony-service on the box not with a CUCM5 or 6.

I've added this line:-

sccp ccm 10.212.1.7 identifier 1 priority 1 version 3.3

but transcoding is still down. Incidentially, I can't go any higher that 4.1 with the version command. I'm a 2821 running c2800nm-adventerprisek9_ivs-mz.124-19b.bin.

Re: CUBE and Transcoding

Can you send debugs of the following? Hope it's not yet into production network.

"debug dspfarm" & "debug sccp" and then do "no dspfarm" & "dspfarm" to get registration details from beginning again.

Re: CUBE and Transcoding

Thanks for the reply.

I am unable to perform a debug dspfarm - its not a valid command in this IOS. Attached is a debug sccp.

Let me know what you find?

Re: CUBE and Transcoding

Thanks all. I downgraded from 12.4-19b to 12.4-15(T5) and the keyword 5.0.1 appeared.

Thanks for your help, transcoders are now registered.
