Introduction

The Cisco AS5300 is a versatile data communications platform that performs two functions in a single modular chassis, depending on the installed feature cards and IOS images:

Remote Access Server

Voice Gateway

The remote access server is intended for Internet service providers (ISPs), telecommunications carriers, and other service providers that offer managed Internet connections and medium to large sites that provide both digital and analog access to users on an enterprise network. By terminating both analog and digital calls on the same chassis simultaneously, the access server provides a clear, simple, and easy migration path from analog dial access services to digital dial access services.

The Cisco AS5300 Voice Gateway is a versatile data communications platform that provides the functions of an access server, router, and digital modem(s) in a single modular chassis. The Cisco AS5300 includes three feature card slots: one holds a T1/E1/PRI feature card, and the other two support modem feature cards or voice digital signal processor (DSP) feature cards. When equipped with modem cards, the Cisco AS5300 serves as a remote access concentrator for dial-up (modem or ISDN) Internet access. When equipped with voice feature cards and Voice IOS, the Cisco AS5300/Voice Gateway serves as a Voice over IP (VoIP) gateway. By using one slot for modems and the other for voice DSPs, the Cisco AS5300 can serve in both capacities. Modem, voice, or fax calls are routed to the appropriate cards/resources via Dialed Number Identification Service (DNIS).

For information on new features and Cisco IOS commands supported by Cisco IOS Release
12.2(2) XA5, see the "New and Changed Information" section and the "Related Documentation" section.

Determining the Software Version

To determine the version of Cisco IOS software running on your Cisco AS5300, log in to the Cisco AS5300 and enter the show version EXEC command:

router> show version
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) 12.2 Software c5300-i-mz, Version 12.2(2) XA5, RELEASE SOFTWARE

Microcode and Modem Code Software

Microcode software images are bundled with the system software image. Bundling eliminates the need to store separate microcode images. When the router starts, the system software unpacks the microcode software bundle and loads the proper software on all the interface processor boards. To obtain the latest Cisco IOS software release compatible with Cisco MICA portware, refer to Cisco AS5x00 MICA 6-Port and 12-Port Modem Module Portware/Cisco IOS Software Compatibility Matrixes at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_serv/5300/sw_conf/sw_ports/compmat/mca12prt.htm

You could have received a later version of modem code than the one bundled with the Cisco IOS software. The modem code in Flash memory is mapped to the modems. Unless you fully understand how Cisco IOS software uses modem code, it is important to keep the factory configuration.

The modem code release notes are on Cisco.com and the Documentation CD-ROM:

New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new hardware and software features supported by the Cisco AS5300 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA5.

New Hardware and Software Features from Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA1 to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA5

There are no new hardware and software features for the Cisco AS5300 from Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA1 to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA

The following new software features are supported in the Cisco AS5300 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(5) XA.

Call Admission Control for H.323 VoIP Gateways

Before the call admission control feature, gateways did not have a mechanism to gracefully prevent calls from entering when certain resources were not available to process the call. This causes the new call to fail with unreported behavior, and could potentially cause the calls that are in progress to have quality related problems.

This feature set provides the ability to support resource-based call admission control processes. These resources include system resources such as CPU, memory, and call volume, and interface resources such as call volume.

If system resources are not available to admit the call, two kinds of actions are provided: system denial (which busyouts all of T1 or E1) or per call denial (which disconnects, hairpins, or plays a message or tone). If the interface-based resource is not available to admit the call, the call is dropped from the session protocol (such as H.323).

User Selected Threshold

This feature allows a user to configure call admission thresholds for local resources as well as memory and CPU resources. The list of local resources that are configured for call admission are described in the command description of call threshold poll-interval.

With the call admission command, a user is allowed to configure two thresholds, high and low, for each resource. Call treatment is triggered when the current value of a resource goes beyond the configured high. The call treatment remains in effect until current resource value falls below the configured low. Having high and low thresholds prevents call admission flapping and provides hysteresis in call admission decision making.

With the call spike command, a user is allowed to configure the limit for incoming calls during a specified time period. A call spike is the term for when a large number of incoming calls arrive from the PSTN in a very short period of time (for example:100 incoming calls in 10 milliseconds).

Configurable Call Treatment

With the call treatment command, users are allowed to select how the call should be treated when local resources are not available to handle the call. For example, when the current resource value for any one of the configured triggers for call admission has reached beyond the configured threshold, the call treatment choices are as follows:

TDM hairpinning — Hairpins the calls through the POTS dial peer.

Reject — Disconnects the call.

Play message or tone — Plays a configured message or tone to the user.

Resource Unavailable Signaling

This feature set supports the autobusyout feature where channels are busied out when local resources are not available to handle the call.

Autobusyout is supported on both channel associated signaling (CAS) and Primary Rate Interface (PRI) channels.

CAS — Uses busyout to signal "local resources are unavailable."

PRI — Uses either service messages or disconnect with correct cause-code to signal "resources are unavailable."

PSTN Fallback

The goal of PSTN fallback is to monitor congestion in the IP network and either redirect calls to the PSTN or reject calls based on the network congestion. Calls can be re-routed to an alternate IP destination or to the PSTN if the IP network is found unsuitable for voice traffic at that time. The user defines the congestion thresholds based on the configured network. This functionality enables the service provider to give a reasonable guarantee about the quality of the conversation to their VoIP users at the time of call admission.


Note PSTN fallback does not provide assurances that a VoIP call that proceeds over the IP network is protected from the effects of congestion. This is the function of the other Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms such as IP Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) priority or low latency queuing (LLQ).


PSTN fallback includes the following features:

Offers flexibility to define the congestion thresholds based on the network.

Defines a threshold based on Calculated Planning Impairment Factor (ICPIF), which is derived as part of International Telecommunication Union (ITU) G.113.

Defines a threshold based solely on packet delay and loss measurements.

Uses Response Time Reporter (RTR) probes to provide packet delay, jitter, and loss information for the relevant IP addresses. Based on the packet loss, delay, and jitter encountered by these probes, an ICPIF or delay and loss values are calculated.

Is supported by calls of any codec. Only G.729 and G.711 have accurately simulated probes. Calls of all other codecs are emulated by a G.711 probe.

For further details, please see: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122x/122xa/122xa_2/ft_pfavb.htm.

H.323 Scalability and Interoperability Enhancements

The Cisco H.323 Scalability and Interoperability Enhancements feature upgrades the Cisco H.323 Gatekeeper (GK) and Cisco H.323 Gateway to comply with H.323 Version 3. The enhancements in this release include:

Support for mandatory H.323 Version 3 elements in the gateway and GK, including:

multipleCalls

maintainConnection

alternateTransportAddresses

useSpecifiedTransport

Support for H.225 call signalling over UDP.

Address resolution using border elements (BE).

Support for bandwidth request (BRQ) messages.

Support for concurrent calls over a single H.225 call signalling channel.

For further details, please see: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122x/122xa/122xa_2/ft323sca.htm.

Inter-Domain Gatekeeper Security Enhancement

The Inter-Domain Gatekeeper Security Enhancement provides a means of authenticating and authorizing H.323 calls between the administrative domains of Internet Telephone Service Providers (ITSPs).

An interzone ClearToken (IZCT) is generated in the originating gatekeeper (OGK) when a location request (LRQ) is initiated or an admission confirmation (ACF) is about to be sent for an intrazone call within an ITSP's administrative domain. As the IZCT traverses through the routing path, each gatekeeper (GK) stamps the IZCT's destination GK ID with its own ID. This identifies when the IZCT is being passed over to another ITSP's domain. The IZCT is then sent back to the OGW in the location confirmation (LCF) message. The OGW passes the IZCT to the terminating gateway (TGW) in the SETUP message. The TGW forwards the IZCT in the admission request (ARQ) answerCall field to the terminating gatekeeper (TGK), which then validates it.

For further details, please see: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122x/122xa/122xa_2/ft_ctoke.htm.

MGCP 1.0 Including NCS 1.0 and TGCP 1.0 Profiles

This feature implements the following MGCP protocols on the supported Cisco media gateways:

MGCP 1.0 (RFC2705)

Network-based Call Signaling (NCS) 1.0, the PacketCable profile of MGCP 1.0 for residential gateways (RGWs)

Trunking Gateway Control Protocol (TGCP) 1.0, the PacketCable profile of MGCP 1.0 for trunking gateways (TGWs)

For further details, please see http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122x/122xa/122xa_2/ft_mg10.htm.

V.44 LZJH Compression

V.44 LZJH is a new compression standard based on Lempel-Ziv that uses a new string-matching algorithm that increases upload and download speeds to make Internet access and Web browsing faster. The V.44 call success rate (CSR) is similar to V.42bis with significant compression improvement for most file types, including HTML files. V.44 applies more millions of instructions per second (MIPS) than V.42bis toward the same application data stream and yields better compression rates in almost any data stream in which V.42bis shows positive results.

V.44 supports automatic switching between compressed and transparent modes on Cisco MICA portware platforms. Automatic switching allows overall performance gain without loss in throughput for file streams that are not compressible.

V.44 is globally controlled through dialed number ID service (DNIS), calling line ID (CLID), and resource pool manager server (RPMS) virtual groups, and performance improvement is determined by the LZJH algorithms. The Cisco MICA portware is responsible for the ITU implementation of V.44 and the collection of statistics related to the new feature.

To support V.44 LZJH compression, the control switch module (CSM) has been modified. MIBs that show the status of V.42bis have been extended to show V.44 configuration status. New disconnect reasons help manage V.44 session status and debugging.

For further details, please see:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122x/122xa/122xa_2/ftv44mca.htm

V.92 Modem on Hold

V.92 Modem on Hold allows a dial-in customer to suspend a modem session to answer an incoming voice call or to place an outgoing call while engaged in a modem session. When the dial-in customer uses Modem on Hold to suspend an active modem session to engage in an incoming voice call, the Internet service provider (ISP) modem listens to the original modem connection and waits for the dial-in customer's modem to resume the connection. When the voice call ends, the modem signals the telephone system to end the second call and return to the original modem connection, then the modem signals the ISP modem that it is ready to resume the modem call. Both modems renegotiate the connection, and the original exchange of data continues.

For further details, please see:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122x/122xa/122xa_2/ft92mmoh.htm

V.92 Quick Connect

V.92 Quick Connect speeds up the client-to-server startup negotiation, reducing the overall connect time up to 30 percent. The client modem retains line condition information and characteristics of the connection to the Internet service provider (ISP), which reduces connect time by avoiding some of the initial signal handshaking.

For further details, please see:

Software Solutions in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA

The following solutions are supported in the Cisco AS5300 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XA:

Cisco Wholesale Voice Solution

The Cisco Wholesale Voice Solution provides service providers (SPs) with the required architecture design, network components, software features, functional areas, and provisioning methodologies needed to run a VoIP wholesale service. With an understanding of the concepts underlying the architecture, including interconnect topologies, components, and a variety of important issues that must be considered, the SP can then deploy options from a set of configuration templates. The result is a wholesale network that allows the SP to sell unbranded voice services to retailers, such as Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs), application service providers (ASPs), interexchange carriers (IXCs), or Post Telephone and Telegraph administrations (PTTs).

For further details, please see: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/sc/rel7/soln/wv_rel1/wsv_rn.htm.

Cisco SS7 Interconnect for Voice Gateways Solution 1.3

The Cisco SS7 Interconnect for Voice Gateways Solution is a distributed system that provides SS7 connectivity for Voice-over-IP (VoIP) access gateways by using the Cisco Signaling Controller (also referred to as the Cisco SC2200 product) and the access gateways as a bridge from the H.323 IP network to the PSTN network. This solution interacts over the IP network with other Cisco H.323 VoIP access gateways. In addition, the Cisco SS7 Interconnect for Voice Gateways Solution can interoperate with H.323 endpoints, using non-SS7 signaling such as ISDN PRI and channelized T1.
