MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

Hi Guys,

I have a voice gateway with a BRI card on slot 0/3/0 (port 0/1) and I wanted to terminate both WAN and PSNT connection to the same gateway with MGCP protocol, and as I'm new to voice over IP world can anyone suggest/recommand me a proper guide which includes the stepts and proper explanations to acheive this task.

Thank you

Regards,

Suthakar

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

My recommendation would be not to bother with MGCP and use SIP instead. Much easier to troubleshoot, more reliable and preferred these days.

MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

If you are very good in DATA network then its very simple to configure MGCP on it.

1) Make sure you have routing to the VOIP network to the HQ.

2) MGCP configuration can be done with in 4 steps.

4) You must configure SRST in MGCP gateway to provide minimum phone services when WAN link unavailable.

3) You have to use gateway hostname to configure MGCP gateway in CUCM along with correct CUCM group. 

Many docs and videos are available in cisco and youtube. Let me know if you stuck while configuring.

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

Hi Suthakar,

what is the exact issue are facing?

Is BRI UP?

can u share output of show ccm-manager, show ccm-manager hosts and show isdn status from router?

regds,

aman

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

Hi Aman,

.

As of now, the bri is not showing the "established state" layer 1 is active and layer 2 is down.

and also in the cucm, the gateway shows as not registered.

I can provide the show command outputs tomorrow morning.

Regards,

Suthakar

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

Hi Suthakar,

Layer 2 should be Mulitple Frame Established then, GW would show registered  considering the config is OK.

regds,

aman

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

Hi Amen,

Acutally the layer 2 status turns to "multiple frame established" when I remove the the following command from the BRI interface configuration

"isdn bind-l3 ccm-manager service mgcp"

interface BRI0/3/0

no ip address

isdn switch-type basic-net3

isdn point-to-point-setup

isdn incoming-voice voice

isdn bind-l3 ccm-manager service mgcp

Otherwise, it stays inactive.

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

Hi Suthakar,

Does Gateway shows as Registered in Call Manager after u remove this command?

regds,

aman

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface

No its not, it only brings the layer 2 status into multiple frame established

Re: MGCP Gateway With ISDN BRI interface
