We have a site with a very simple PBX connected to the PSTN using ISDN lines. This PBX has no IVR or call control features. We would like to add a Cisco router in between the PBX and the PSTN to do this. What we had in mind was:
- A call comes in from the PSTN to the Cisco router.
- The router then asks our database server, using some form of TCP/IP communication, how to route the call. We are willing to do development work on the database server to support whatever communication protocol the router prefers.
- The database server looks up the called number in an SQL database, and finds a destination.
- Based on this, the cisco router either passes on the call to the PBX, or as an H.323 call to another site.
- During the conversation, the database machine may want to re-route the call. In this case, it signals the router, which hangs up on the PBX, perhaps plays a 'please hold' message to the caller, and re-routes the call.
Is there any way of doing this on Cisco routers? What network protocol could we use to communicate with the database server?
I'm not able to access my old voice mail messages all of a sudden. The recording says something like 'the message is currently not available'. This has never happened before in all the years I have been using this system. I have t...
If you have 2 ISR routers, one acting as Failover, do we need to have both the same number of SRST licenses on the 2 routers?
No. You will only need the SRST licenses on the primary router. Because this feature...
