Re: mgx cell suppression

Hi !!!

My name is Kevin

It looks like you cannot enable idle suppression on unstuctured lines. I tried setting this up in the lab. When you do a "cnfchan" to enable it, it comes back and says you cannot enable it on when the signaling is basic. The other problem is that you can't configure a port for unstructure in CAS mode.

Hope this helps. Do you have any VISM'S in your network. I am looking for AAL2 trunking configs.
