Cisco ISDN2e VIC2-2BRI-NT/TE configuration issues.

Here follows the ISDN2e specific config for a gateway connected in the Uk with DDI. An assuption is made that the DDI range is : 03333 567890 – 03333 567899 and that the internal extensions would be 3000 – 3009. In addition to this calls to the PSTN will be presented with full DDI of the calling extension.

Two very important things to be aware of when connecting ISDN2e in the Uk.

1. BT by default only present that last 6 digits on inbound DDI

2. The default companding type is u-law so you need to set it to a-law manually.

Translation-rule 1 is used to convert from the inbound DDI presentation to the internal extension number.

Translation-rule 2 is used to re-write the calling number to add a leading 9 (and the missing 0). So that a user can return the call directly from a list without editing the number.

Translation-rule 3 is used to map back from the extension to the full external DDI number.

Dial-peer 10 is used to control incoming calls (we don’t like defaults dialpeer zero).

I Have split up the outbound dial-peers so that COR (class of restriction) can be applied if we wish to.

A combination of either CME or Call Manager/SRST configuration needs to be added to make more use of this configuration.
