Modification

12.0(2)T

This command was introduced.

12.4(16)

This command was removed from the Cisco IOS software code on the Cisco 2800 series and Cisco 3800 series platforms.

12.4(15)T

This command was removed from the Cisco IOS software code on the Cisco 2800 series and Cisco 3800 series platforms.

12.4(20)T

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.4(20)T.

Usage Guidelines

RLM delivers ISDN Q.921 frames over an IP network. RLM affects D-channel signaling only; it does not affect the B channels. The time slot assigned originally to the D channel is freed and used as a B channel because D signaling occurs over the IP network.

The isdn rlm-group command allows RLM to be used to transport the D-channel information (signaling) over Ethernet.

The isdn rlm-group is supported only on the Cisco AS5300, AS5350, AS5400, and AS5850 series access servers. This command is not supported on Cisco 1800 series, 2800 series, 3700 series, and 3800 series platforms.

Prior to Cisco IOS Releases 12.4(16) and 12.4(15)T, the isdn rlm-group command could be entered on Cisco 2800 series and 3800 series platforms even though it was not supported. In some conditions, this could cause the router to reload. Effective with Cisco IOS Releases 12.4(16) and 12.4(15)T, the isdn rlm-group command is no longer available on the Cisco 2800 series and 3800 series platforms.

Command History

Release

Modification

12.1(3)XI

This command was introduced.

12.1(5)T

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.1(5)T.

Usage Guidelines

For user-side BRI interfaces, you can send ID verify messages to confirm the status of a particular terminal endpoint identifier (TEI) when there is doubt about whether the TEI is in use (for example, after a Layer 1/Layer 2 flap). ID is the TEI value.

For network-side BRI interfaces, the command should always be set. In some cases, the command will automatically be configured after the BRI network-side protocol emulation is set. If not, you can manually configure the command on the network-side BRI interface. After the command has been configured either automatically or manually, it cannot be further changed. A network-side BRI interface should always be set so that it does not send ID verify information.

Examples

The following example shows user-side output, with the default in effect, so the ID verify is sent:

Router# show isdn status br0/0
Global ISDN Switchtype = basic-net3
ISDN BRI0/0 interface
        dsl 0, interface ISDN Switchtype = basic-net3
    Layer 1 Status:
        ACTIVE
    Layer 2 Status:
        TEI = 95, Ces = 1, SAPI = 0, State = MULTIPLE_FRAME_ESTABLISHED
    Layer 3 Status:
        0 Active Layer 3 Call(s)
    Active dsl 0 CCBs = 0
    The Free Channel Mask:  0x80000003
    Total Allocated ISDN CCBs = 0

The following sample output shows network-side output, with the default in effect:

ISDN BRI1/1 interface
        ******* Network side configuration *******
        dsl 9, interface ISDN Switchtype = basic-qsig
         **** Master side configuration ****
    Layer 1 Status:
        ACTIVE
    Layer 2 Status:
        TEI = 64, Ces = 1, SAPI = 0, State = MULTIPLE_FRAME_ESTABLISHED
    Layer 3 Status:
        0 Active Layer 3 Call(s)
    Active dsl 9 CCBs = 0
    The Free Channel Mask:  0x80000003
    Total Allocated ISDN CCBs = 0

The following sample output shows the BRI interface with the isdn skipsend-idverify command in effect (so the ID verify will not be sent):

Router# show run interface br0/0
Building configuration...
Current configuration : 185 bytes
!
interface BRI0/0
 no ip address
 encapsulation ppp
 no ip mroute-cache
 isdn switch-type basic-net3
 isdn point-to-point-setup

 isdn skipsend-idverify
end

The following example shows the return to default so that the ID verify will be sent:

Router# configure
Configuring from terminal, memory, or network [terminal]?
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
router(config)#interface br0/0
router(config-if)#no isdn skipsend-idverify

Specifies the interface and enters interface configuration mode.

isdn spoofing

To enable ISDN spoofing so that loss of Layer 1 or Layer 2 connectivity of the ISDN BRI interface is not detected by the Trunk Group Resource Manager (TGRM) or similar application, use the isdn spoofing command in interface configuration mode. To disable ISDN spoofing so the TGRM or similar application can detect when the BRI interface is not operational (when the Layer 1 or Layer 2 connection is down), use the no form of this command.

isdn spoofing

no isdn spoofing

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

The ISDN BRI interface is spoofing, which means that applications always see the BRI interface connection as operational (unless the interface has been manually shut down [ADMINDOWN state]).

Command Modes


Interface configuration (config-if)

Command History

Release

Modification

12.3(14)T

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

The ISDN BRI interface is spoofing by default. Spoofing makes the ISDN BRI interface available (up) for operation (for dialing in ISDN), even if the interface is down. For an ISDN BRI interface to be set to a down condition, the interface must be manually shut down (IDBS_ADMINDOWN state). Spoofing enables upper layers to dial out even when the interface is down.

Some upper layer modules, such as TGRM and similar applications, allow dial-out only if the channel is available. If the record for TGRM or similar application is notified of the actual status of BRI, then the TGRM or similar application can dial out accordingly. In this case, the no isdn spoofing command is appropriate.


Note


ISDN spoofing can be applied only to BRI interfaces--it does not apply to PRI interfaces.


Examples

The following example shows how to configure an ISDN BRI interface to disable ISDN spoofing:

Router# config terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z. 
Router(config)# interface bri0/0
 
Router(config-if)# no isdn spoofing

Command History

Release

Modification

12.4(2)T

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

You must explicitly specify an ISDN serial interface. The D channel is always the :23 channel for T1 and the :15 channel for E1.

To enable traceability, the call diversion service requires that a VoIP call (when diverted) translates into a divertingLegInformation2 IE instead of a RedirectionIE. When the isdn supp-service calldiversion command is configured, the redirecting information coming from the application is packed in the Facility Information Element (FAC IE) as DiversionLeg2 information and sent in the outgoing SETUP message.

The isdn supp-service calldiversion command works only for NET5 switches.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure the primary NET5 switch so that the call diversion tracing service is enabled:

interface serial3:23
 no ip address
 isdn switch-type primary-net5

12.4(20)T

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.4(20)T.

Usage Guidelines

You must explicitly specify an ISDN serial interface. The D channel is always the :23 channel for T1 and the :15 channel for E1.

Under the serial interface (interface serial command), the isdn supp-service name calling command must be configured so that when the calling name comes in the Facility Information Element (IE) of the ISDN setup message, the gateway sends the calling name to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager as a Display IE. If the isdn supp-service name calling command is not configured under the ISDN serial interface, the calling name in the FacilityIE is sent as user-to-user data to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager without the display data.

Beginning with Cisco IOS Release 12.4(15)T1, the ie, operation-value-tag, profile, Network Extension, ecma, iso, local, and ROSE keywords were added to provide more specific information in defining calling name information that is to be sent.

Modification

12.3(1)

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

This command enables TBCT for a specific PRI when used in interface configuration mode. This command configures TBCT for all PRIs in a trunk group when used in trunk-group configuration mode.

The notify-on-clear keyword is necessary for the gateway to track billing. This keyword is supported only for user-side ISDN interfaces. You must configure the ISDN switch to send a notify message when a call is cleared.

On some PBX switches, the call reference flag (including the call reference value of the other call) is mandatory. To include the call reference flag in a TBCT request, use the tbct - with - crflg keyword. The call reference flag can be 00 or 80. So, for example, if the call reference value is 02, the call reference flag is 0002 or 8002.

Examples

The following example shows how to enable TBCT for interface 0:23:

Usage Guidelines

This command starts a timer when the voice gateway sends a Facility message to the PSTN. If a response is not received within the specified time, the Tool Command Language (TCL) Interactive Voice Response (IVR) script for MCID is notified. Depending on how the script is written, it could reinvoke MCID or perform some other action, such as playing a message if the MCID attempt fails. This command is valid only at the ISDN interface level. The ISDN interface must use the NET5 switch type, which is set using the isdn switch-type primary-net5 command. Protocol emulation must be set to user, which is the default for the isdn protocol-emulate command.

Examples

Modification

11.3T

This command was introduced as an interface command.

12.2

Usage Guidelines

This command is for BRI configuration only.

The first-call and powerup, and preserve and removecommand pairs are mutually exclusive, that is, you must choose only one command from either the first-call and powerup or preserve and removecommand pairs, per command line.

The no isdn tei-negotiationcommand returns the configuration to default to the powerup state.

Use of the preservekeyword causes different behavior depending on the ISDN switch type configured, that is, the TEI negotiation configured will be preserved during ISDN Layer 1 flaps, and when the clear interface or the shutdown and no shutdown EXEC commands are executed, on the switch types listed in the table below.

For all other ISDN switch types, the TEI negotiation will be removed during ISDN Layer 1 flaps, and when the clear interface or the shutdown and no shutdown EXEC commands are executed. Use the remove keyword to specifically set one of the switches listed in the table above to the remove state.

The first-call keyword and its functionality are not supported on U.S. switch types (basic-ni, basic-5ess, basic-dms100, primary-ni, primary-4ess, primary-5ess, and primary-dms100), especially for service profile identifier (SPID) negotiations. The first-call keyword and its functionality are supported on European switch types (basic-net3 and primary-net5) to prevent Layer 2 activity when there are no Layer 3 calls.

12.2(11)T

This command was introduced on the following platforms: Cisco 3640, Cisco 3660, Cisco AS5300, Cisco AS5350, and Cisco AS5400.

12.4(15)T

The url argument was modified to accept a Media Resource Control Protocol version 2 (MRCP v2) server URL.

Usage Guidelines

This command sets the server location globally for all voice applications on the gateway.

For Nuance media servers that use the default installation, specify the URL as follows:

ivr asr -server rtsp://host:port]/recognizer

(host is the host name of the media server; :port is optional.)

For media servers using MRCP v2, specify the URL as follows:

ivr asr -server sip:server-name@host-name | ip-address

You can specify the location of the media server within a VoiceXML document, overriding the Cisco gateway configuration. For more information, see the Cisco VoiceXML Programmer’s Guide.

Examples

The following example specifies that voice applications use the ASR server named "asr_serv":

Router(config)# ivr asr-server rtsp://asr_serv/recognizer

The following example specifies that voice applications use the MRCP v2 ASR server named "asr_mrcpv2serv":

12.2(2)XB1

This command was implemented on the Cisco AS5850.

12.2(11)T

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(11)T.

Usage Guidelines

The index file contains a list of audio files (URL) that can be downloaded from the TFTP server. Use thiscommand to download audio files from TFTP to memory. The command only starts up a background process. The background process (loader) does the actual downloading of the files.

The background process first reads the index file from either Flash or TFTP. It parses the files line by line looking for the URL. It ignores lines that start with # as comment lines. Once it has a correct URL, it tries to read that.au file into memory and creates a media object. If there are any errors during the reading of the file, it retries the configured number of times. If the mode is set to verbose, the loader logs the transaction to console. Once parsing has reached the end of the index file, the background process exits memory.

Perform the following checks before initiating the background process. If one of the checks fails, it indicates the background process is not started, and instead you see an error response to the command.

  • Check if any prompt is being actively used (IVR is actively playing some prompts). If there are active prompts, the command fails, displaying the following error message (.au files are also referred to as prompts):

command is not allowed when prompts are active

  • Check if there is already a background process in progress. If there is a process, the command fails, displaying the following error:

previous autoload command is still in progress

  • Check if an earlier ivr autoload urlcommand has already been configured. If an ivr autoload urlcommand has already been configured, the user sees the following response when the command is issued:

previous command is being replaced

  • When the no ivr autoload urlcommand is issued, if there was already an ivr autoload urlcommand in progress, the original command is aborted.

The audio files (prompts) loaded using the ivr autoload urlcommand are not dynamically swapped out of memory. They are considered to be autoloaded prompts, as opposed to dynamic prompts. (See the ivr prompt memorycommand for details on dynamic prompts.)

Examples

The following example configures verbose mode:

ivr autoload mode verbose url tftp://blue/orange/tclware/index4 retry 3

The following example shows the resulting index file:

12.2(11)T

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(11)T.

Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1 and implemented on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.

Usage Guidelines

When both the number and size parameters are specified, the minimum memory out of the two is used for memory calculations.

All the prompts that are not autoloaded or fixed are considered dynamic. Dynamic prompts are loaded in to memory from TFTP or Flash, as and when they are needed. When they are actively used for playing prompts, they are considered to be in "active" state. However, once the prompt playing is complete, these prompts are no longer active and are considered to be in a free state.

The free prompts either stay in memory or are removed from memory depending on the availability of space in memory for these free prompts. This command essentially specifies a maximum memory to be used for these free prompts.

The free prompts are saved in memory and are queued in a wait queue. When the wait queueis full (either because the totally memory occupied by the free prompts exceeds the maximum configured value or the number of files in the wait queue exceeds maximum configured), oldest free prompts are removed from memory.

Examples

The following example sets memory size to 2048 KB and number of files to 500:

ivr prompt memory 2048 files 500

The index file contains a list of audio files URLs that can be downloaded from the TFTP server. Use thiscommand to download audio files from TFTP to memory. The command starts up a background process. The background process (loader) does the actual downloading of the files.

The background process first reads the index file from either Flash memory or TFTP. It parses the files line by line, looking for the URL. It ignores lines that start with # as comment lines. Once it has a correct URL, it tries to read that .au file into memory and creates a media object. If there are any errors during the reading of the file, it retries the configured number of times. If the mode is set to "verbose," in the ivr autoload mode command the loader logs the transaction to console. Once parsing has reached the end of the index file, the background process exits memory.

Perform the following checks before initiating the background process. If one of the checks fails, it indicates that the background process is not started, and instead you see an error response to the command.

  • Check to see if any prompt is being actively used (IVR is actively playing some prompts). If there are active prompts, the command fails, displaying the following error message (.au files are also referred to as prompts):

The ccapi, cch323, and ccsip error debugs were included in the output display.

12.4(20)YA

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.4(20)YA.

Usage Guidelines

To troubleshoot a Cisco router that is being used in a contact center, it is often necessary to enable specific debug commands to display error messages. Typically, you must manually enable the individual debug commands each time the router is reloaded. Use the ivr contact-center command to enable the following debug commands and to automatically re-enable these commands each time the router is reloaded:

  • debug ccsip error
  • debug cch323 error
  • debug http client error
  • debug mrcp error
  • debug rtsp error
  • debug voip application error
  • debug voip application vxml error
  • debug voice ccapi error

While this command is configured, the listed debug commands cannot be disabled. Attempts to disable any of these debug commands while the ivr contact-center command is configured will display a warning message and the debug command will not be disabled.

Configuring the no ivr contact-center command does not disable the listed debug commands. To disable these debug commands after configuring the no ivr contact-center command, you must either manually disable each individual debug command or reload the router, after which these debug commands are not re-enabled.

You can verify that the listed debug commands are enabled after you configure the ivr contact-center command by using the show debugcommand.

Examples

The following partial output from the show running-config command shows that the ivr contact-center command is enabled:

Router# show running-confi

Usage Guidelines

This command specifies the voice profile that a TTS server uses for voice synthesis operations. The voice profile is a W3C Simple Markup Language (SML) file that specifies voice parameters like gender, speed, and so forth. The TTS server uses this voice profile unless the markup file that it is translating has overriding values.

The TTS voice profile can be stored on an HTTP server or on RTSP, TFTP, or FTP servers if the media sever supports these locations.

The TTS voice profile location can also be specified in the VoiceXML document by using the Cisco proprietary property com.cisco.tts-voice-profile. The VoiceXML property in the document overrides the value that is configured by using this command.

To specify the location of the external media server that is providing TTS functionality, use the ivr tts-server command.

Usage Guidelines

In Cisco Unified CME 4.0 and later versions, an XML interface is provided through the Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure (IXI), in which the parser and transport layers are separated from the application itself.

When you are using the Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure, the same HTTP transport layer can be used by multiple applications. The ixi application cme command enters XML application configuration mode to allow you to set Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure parameters for the Cisco Unified CME application. In this configuration mode, you can set the response timeout parameter using the response timeoutcommand and enable communication with the application using the no shutdown command.

The ixi transport command allows you to set parameters for the Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure transport layer.


Note


The no form of the ixi application cme command is not supported.


Examples

The following example shows how to configure the Cisco Unified CME application to overwrite the Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure transport-level timeout with a 30-second response timeout and enable XML communication with the application.

Usage Guidelines

The Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure (IXI) simplifies the implementation and deployment of XML-based applicatiosn in Cisco IOS software. IXI applications can be clients and or servers where the parser and transport layers are separated from the application itself. This modularity provides scalability and enables future XML supports to be developed.

An eXtensible Markup Language (XML) application programming interface (API) supports Cisco IOS commands allowing you to specify certain parameters associated with the XML API.

Once you are in XML application configuration mode, you can use the following commands:

  • default --XML application configuration parameters defaults.
  • exit --Apply changes and exit from XML application configuration mode.
  • help --Display of the interactive help system.
  • no --Negate a command or set its defaults.
  • response --Response parameters.
  • shutdown --Stop the application.

Examples

The following example shows how to enter XML application configuration mode, set the XML application timeout period to 30 seconds, format the response parameters to in human readable XML, and exit XML application configuration mode:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# ixi application mib
Router(conf-xml-app)# response timeout 30
Router(conf-xml-app)# response formatted
Router(conf-xml-app)# exit

Usage Guidelines

The Cisco IOS XML Infrastructure (IXI) simplifies the implementation and deployment of XML-based applications in Cisco IOS software. IXI applications can be clients and or servers where the parser and transport layers are separated from the application itself. This modularity provides scalability and enables future XML supports to be developed. IXI allows applications to be written in a transport independent manner. The ixi transport command enters XML transport configuration mode where you can set transport configuration parameters.

Once you are in XML transport configuration mode, you can access the following commands:

  • default option --XML transport configuration command defaults.
  • exit --Apply changes and exit from XML application configuration mode.
  • help --Display the interactive help system.
  • no --Negate a command or set its defaults.
  • request --Request handling parameters.
  • response size --Response transport fragment size.
  • shutdown --Stop the transport.

Examples

The following example shows how to enter XML transport configuration mode, set the XML transport fragment size to 32 Kbytes, and exit XML transport configuration mode:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# ixi transport http
Router(conf-xml-trans)# response size 32
 
Router(conf-xml-trans)# exit
