PSTN dialing with #

I have a route pattern ending in 9011!        I am trying to end the dialing with #.  Hitting the # sign gives, your number cannot be dialed.  Am i missing something here, or is there a best practice route pattern I should be using for intl dialing?  I thought the ! symbol gave me access to using the # as an ending delimter.

Thanks

The issue is that you need a route pattern that will accept the hash (#). You could do one of the following:

1. Have two patterns:

9011!

9011!#

The first pattern will match calls when the user doesn't provide the hash (#). The second pattern will match when the hash *is* provided.

2. Have one pattern:

9011![0-9#]

The above pattern is matched whether the user provides the hash (#) or not.

Tanks for the quick response.  I understand the RP, but how does CM know to end the interdgit timeout, rather than the # just being part of the dialed number?

Nevermind, I got it.  I found the Predot - Trailing# discard strip.

Thanks again for the quick response

The digit analysis process is hardcoded to treat the hash/octothorpe (#) character as a special character. It signals the end of the dialing string. It must occur at the end of a pattern and, when entered from IP phone, no additional digits are accepted.

Basically, it is built in and CUCM will immediately route based on digits up to and including the #. This is why you have to add the # to your translation or route pattern.
