Number Translation using Voice Translation Profiles

Cisco - Number Translation using Voice Translation Profiles

Related Cisco Support Community Discussions section for more information on SED.

This document describes highlighted features and configurations for new Voice Translation Profiles and specific examples for the most common scenarios.

The translation rules replace a sub string of the input number if the number matches the match pattern, number plan, and type present in the rule. The SED utility is used to check for a match based on the match pattern. Another ability of the translation rules is the ability to block calls on specific numbers. These rules are specified with a special keyword called 'reject'.

Features:

New translation rules follow regular expression matching similar to SED:

  • An escape sequence similar to UNIX via backslashes is supported.

  • The keywords 'NULL' and 'ANY' are not supported in new translation rules, but these keywords can be replaced by regular expressions similar to SED.

  • Up to fifteen translation rules can be defined per translation rule table.

  • Up to 1000 translation profiles can be defined. Up to 128 translation rules can be defined.

Assign Translation Profiles

New translation rules can be referenced by a translation profile. You can define these types of call numbers in a translation profile:

  • called

  • calling

  • redirect-called

Each type of call number in the profile can have different translation rules.

Once a translation profile is defined, it can be referenced by:

  • Trunk Group—Two different translation profiles can be defined in a trunk group in order to perform number translation for incoming and outgoing POTS calls. If an outgoing translation profile is defined in a trunk group, the number translation is done while the outgoing call is setup.

  • Source IP Group—A translation profile can be defined in a source IP group in order to perform number translation for incoming VoIP calls.

  • Dial Peer—Two different translation profiles can be defined in a dial peer in order to perform number translation for incoming and outgoing calls.

  • Voice Port—The translation profile can be defined in a voice port in order to perform number translation for incoming and outgoing POTS calls. If a voice port is also a trunk group member, then the incoming translation profile of a voice port overrides the translation profile of a trunk group.

  • Non-Facility Associated Signaling (NFAS) Interface—The translation profile can be defined for an NFAS interface through the translation-profile command line from the global voice service pots configuration in order to perform the number translation for incoming and outgoing NFAS calls. This translation profile has a higher precedence than the translation profile of a voice port and trunk group in case a channel also belongs to a voice port and/or trunk group with the translation profile defined.

  • VoIP Incoming—The translation profile can be defined globally for all incoming VoIP (h323/sip) calls in order to perform number translation. If an incoming H.323/SIP call is associated with a Source IP Group with a translation profile defined, then the translation profile of the Source IP Group overrides the global translation profile for incoming VoIP calls.

voice translation-rule Command

Issue the voice translation-rule command in global configuration mode in order to define a translation rule for voice calls. Use the no form of this command in order to delete the translation rule.

  • voice translation-rule number

  • no voice translation-rule number

Note: The number parameter is the unique identifier for the translation rule. The range is from 1 to 2147483647. There is no default.

rule (voice translation-rule)

In order to define a translation rule, use the rule command in voice translation-rule configuration mode. In order to delete the translation rule, use the no form of this command.

  • Match and Replace Rule

    rule precedence /match-pattern/ /replace-pattern/
    
    [type {match-type replace-type} [plan {match-type replace-type}]] 
    
    no rule precedence
     
  • Reject Rule

    rule precedence reject /match-pattern/ [type match-type [plan match-type]]
    
    no rule precedence
     

Syntax Description

Syntax Description
precedence Priority of the translation rule. The range is from 1 to 15.
/match-pattern/ Stream editor (SED) expression that is used to match incoming call information. The slash `/' is a delimiter in the pattern.
/replace-pattern/ The SED expression that is used to replace the match pattern in the call information. The slash `/' is a delimiter in the pattern.
type match-type replace-type (Optional) The numbering type match can be:
  • abbreviated
  • any
  • international
  • national
  • network
  • reserved
  • subscriber
  • unknown
The numbering type replacement can be:
  • abbreviated
  • international
  • national
  • network
  • reserved
  • subscriber
  • unknown
plan match-type replace-type (Optional) The plan type match can be:
  • any
  • data
  • ermes
  • isdn
  • national
  • private
  • reserved
  • telex
  • unknown
The plan type replacement can be:
  • data
  • ermes
  • isdn
  • national
  • private
  • reserved
  • telex
  • unknown
reject The match pattern of a translation rule is used for call-reject purposes.

Example

This example initiates translation rule 150. This includes two rules:

Router(config)#voice translation-rule 150

Router(cfg-translation-rule)#rule 1 reject /^919\(.(\)/

Router(cfg-translation-rule)#rule 2 /\(^...\)853\(...\)/ /\1525\2/

The voice translation rules use characters similar to Regular Expression Syntax (regexp). But, there are some minor differences and limitations. Most of the limitations are of no real concern since only digit manipulation is performed.

Voice Translation Rule Character Description
^ Match the expression at the start of a line.
$ Match the expression at the end of the line.
/ Delimiter that marks the start and end of both the matching and replacement strings.
\ Escape the special meaning of the next character.
- Indicates a range when not in the first/last position. Used with the'[' and ']'.
[list] Match a single character in a list.
[^list] Do not match a single character specified in the list.
. Match any single character.
* Repeat the previous regexp zero or more times.
+ Repeat the previous regular expression one or more times.
? Repeat the previous regular expression zero or one time (use CTRL-V in order to enter in IOS).
() Groups regular expressions.

CallManager Fallback Configuartion

You can also apply Translation profiles in a Cisco CallManager fallback configuration. When applied under the call-manager-fallback mode, the calls are translated only when the IP phones fallback to SRST mode. Under normal circumstances (when phones are registered to Cisco CallManager servers), the call made by the phones are not translated. The translation-profile under the call-manager-fallback affect the incoming and outgoing calls to the router from the IP phone. This is a different behavior than when you apply the translation-profile under a dial-peer. The incoming and outgoing commands are related to the IP phone. The incoming command changes the parameters of calls that come from the IP phone. The outgoing command changes the values of calls that go out of the router to the IP phone.

voice translation-rule 1
 rule 1 /^.*/ /5551234/
!
!
voice translation-profile srst-in
 translate calling 1
!
call-manager-fallback
 translation-profile incoming srst-in
!

When the IP phone makes a call, the calling number of the incoming calling number changes and is then processed by the router. The router routes the call using that calling number. In this example, all calls from IP phones to the router show the calling number as 5551234. This includes the calls between IP phones. In order to change the calling number to calls that leave the router to the PSTN only, apply the translation-profile in the dial-peer pots so that IP phone to IP phone calls are not affected.

Refer to the Cisco IOS Voice Command Reference for information on the call-manager-fallback command.

Certain show commands are supported by the Output Interpreter Tool (registered customers only) , which allows you to view an analysis of show command output.

You can use the test voice translation-rule command to test the behavior of the rule.

In order to test the functionality of a translation rule, use the test voice translation-rule command in privileged EXEC mode.

Troubleshoot

This section provides information you can use to troubleshoot your configuration.

Note: Refer to Important Information on Debug Commands before you issue debug commands.

WIth the same translation rule, use debug voice translation and then run the test voice translation-rule command again.
