Integrating Cisco 2900 Router with Nortel PBX CS1000M

Post by Guest » Wed Dec 29, 2010 7:13 am

Hi Team, I have an integration between a Cisco Router 2900 and a Nortel PBX CS1000M.  They are both connected with an E1 R2 CAS.  When we configure the E1 with no ANI request, we are able to dial from cisco to nortel and viceversa.  If I enable ANI on Cisco Router and enable caller ID on Nortel call completes from Cisco to Nortel with no caller ID on Nortel, and it does not work from Nortel to Cisco (on Nortel you just hear a beep, and channel stays on seize status).  I would like Nortel extensions and Cisco extensions to ID correctly. Cisco router is running IOS 15.1(2)T1 with UC license.  Nortel PBX I know it runs firmware version 4.0.  Im attaching the output from debug voip ccapi inout, debug voip vtsp all and debug vpm signal Extension on Cisco is 4707 and Extension on Nortel PBX is 4280 Has any of you jumped into something similar?.  Im not experienced on Nortel, and tech guy Im working with does not understand about signaling.  Configuration on Cisco side:  controller E1 0/3/0framing NO-CRC4ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-15,17-30 type r2-digital r2-compelled anicas-custom 1  country telmex use-defaults  category 2  answer-signal group-b 1description E1 desde PBX para Extensiones  dial-peer voice 4000 potsdescription Extensiones PBX Norteldestination-pattern 4[237]..direct-inward-dialport 0/3/0:1forward-digits allno sip-register [/quote:ctk4q8nb]    El mensaje fue editado por: Sergio Barreto

Any possibility you set the PBX for PRI ?That will make everythign work easy and smooth. Troubleshooting E1 R2 is always an arduous task. It requires a lot of skills, time, equipment. It should really be avoided if possible at all.

Thanks for your answer , PRI indeed would be awesome, but problem is Nortel PBX does not have license for PRI (thats what Nortel tech guy says) so Im afraid I have no option on that side. Sergio.

Ok. To be honest with you, I do not look in depth at E1 R2 traces over the forum anymore. It is interesting stuff, but without having direct control on the equipment and seeing things personally, it just takes too much time and focus for something done on a best effort basis. I will keep working on E1 R2 for my clients, anyway. Mucha suerte de todas maneras.

Hi, Nortel tech guy says that PBX does support PRI... Do you have any guide to integrate Cisco and Nortel with PRI, in order to have caller-id enable as well? Thanks,Sergio.
