Re: ISDN GW 3241 ; admin config guide

Two important configuration on ISDN Gateway as additional information for your reference (addition to administrator guide).

1) Service Prefix configuration on ISDN Gateway

Make sure this service prefix number doesn’t overlap with any other Endpoint/MCU alias.

You may utilize VCS for SIP/H323 Interworking as well.

  • ISDN Gateway register to VCS with “Dial plan prefix” (Note, each dial rules doesn’t register to VCS individually).

       

       

2) Dial plan configuration

The inbound dial plan and outbound dial plan are separate configuration.

Here is some sample dial plan configuration per call scenario.

Example 1: Using VCS to dial (IP to ISDN dial rules )

  • Called number matches: 2511(D+)
  • Call this number: $1
  • Explanation: $1 refers to the first bracketed group in the number match field.
    This is D+, which means one or more of any digit.
    By putting the “2511” first we exclude it from the D+ group, which means we are left with a valid PSTN number to dial. So the user could dial 251101234567 from their phone and the ISDN Gateway would strip the 2511 and dial 01234567 over the PSTN.

   

Example 2: Auto Attendant (IP to ISDN dial rules )

  • Called number matches: 2510
  • Action: “Enter the auto attendant”

    DTMF keys

  • Digits 0 to 9
  • # (hash), to indicate that you have completed the number and to start dialing

    FECC control

  • If FECC is enabled on your endpoint, use the Left arrow to delete the last character and the Right to start dialing.

   

Example 3: Using VCS to dial (ISDN to IP dial rules)

  • Called number matches: 623065(D+)
  • Call this number: 906580$1
  • Explanation: Last two digit of incoming ISDN call added to “906580” and forward to VCS for alias
    So the user dial-in 62306530 then GW strip “30” and add it into 906580 which come out 90658030 and process farther call negotiation with VCS

   

Example 4: Auto Attendant (ISDN to IP dial rules)

  • Called number matches: 62303640
  • Action: “Enter the auto attendant”

    FECC control

  • If FECC is enabled on your endpoint, use the Left arrow to delete the last character and the Right to start dialing.

    DTMF keys

  • Digits 0 to 9
  • * (asterisk or star), which is interpreted as a dot (.) for ISDN to IP calls
  • ** interpreted as a “:” and used as an extension separator for ISDN to IP calls
  • # (hash), to indicate that you have completed the number and to start dialing
