Expressway C/E no Target LocalZone

Hello Community,

I have two fresh installed expressway´s C and E. No I want to gor forward through the basic install guide. 

One step is to add an dial plan search rule "no domain" with the Target LocalZone!

But there is the challenge - I have no Target LocalZone. I Only have the Traversal Zone....

Has anyone an idea to solve my issue ?


kind regards

Hi Patrick,The Expressway-C

Hi Patrick,

The Expressway-C to -E "traversal zone"  automatically creates the rules it needs to proxy remote device SIP signaling requests through. This is slightly different from the VCS-Control -Expressway mode. I suggest you download the latest Expressway deployment guide as it explains this in step-by-step fashion:

Bottom line is if you just want to configure remote Cisco SIP devices to register through Expressway, you shouldn't need to create any special rules/transforms in that -C to -E zone.

Hi Patrick,

Hi Patrick,

I have exactly the same issue. Did you find a solution to set the "LocalZone"?

Local zone is only applicable

Local zone is only applicable to the VCS Series, as the Expressway Series just passes the call to either a CUCM neighbor zone, traversal zone between an Expressway-C/E, or DNS zone.  Suggest you take a look at the Expressway Basic Configuration Deployment Guide and Expressway and CUCM via SIP Trunk Deployment Guide.

If you're seeing a configuration step for local zone mentioned in the guides, please provide the guide and page numbers.
