New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new features supported by the Cisco ICS 7750 series for Cisco IOS software releases Release 12.2(2)XK.

New Hardware Features in Release 12.2(2)XK2

Cisco IOS Release12.2(2)XK2 on the Cisco ICS 7750 supports the following new hardware features:

Two-Port FXO for The United States With Battery Reversal (VIC-2FXO-M1)

Two-Port FXO for Europe with Battery Reversal (VIC-2FXO-M2)

Two-Port FXO for Australia with Battery Reversal (VIC-2FXO-M3)

Two-Port Direct Inward-Dialing Voice Interface Card (VIC-2DID)

Two-Port FXO for The United States With Battery Reversal (VIC-2FXO-M1)

The Cisco ICS 7750 now supports two-port Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) voice interface cards for the United States using the battery reversal VIC-2FXO-M1 card. The Cisco FXO interface is an RJ-11 connector that allows an analog connection to be directed at the PSTN central office or to a station interface on a PBX. The FXO is on the switch end of the connection and plugs directly into the line side of the switch, so the switch perceives the FXO interface as a telephone. FXO-M1 is an enhancement of FXO with battery reversal and Caller ID features.

Two-Port FXO for Europe with Battery Reversal (VIC-2FXO-M2)

The Cisco ICS 7750 now supports a two-port Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) voice interface card, VIC-2FXO-M2, for Europe. VIC-2FXO-M2 is an enhancement of the VIC-2FXO-EU card, with battery reversal and Caller ID features.

Two-Port FXO for Australia with Battery Reversal (VIC-2FXO-M3)

The Cisco ICS 7750 now supports a two-port Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) voice interface card, VIC-2FXO-M3, for Australia. VIC-2FXO-M3 provides battery reversal features.

Two-Port Direct Inward-Dialing Voice Interface Card (VIC-2DID)

The Cisco ICS 7750 now supports the two-port, DID voice interface card (VIC-2DID). DID is a service offered by telephone companies that enables callers to dial directly to an extension on a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) or packet voice system (for example, Cisco CallManager and IOS routers or gateways) without the assistance of an operator or automated call attendant. This service uses DID trunks, which forward only the last three to five digits of a phone number to the PBX, router, or gateway. For example, if a company has the phone extensions 555-1000 to 555-1999, and a caller dials 555-1234, the local central office (CO) forwards 234 to the PBX or packet voice system. The PBX or packet voice system then rings extension 234. The entire process is transparent to the caller.

The VIC-2DID card services two analog DID trunks using analog voice or fax. The card provides dual-working modes, DID and FXS, which are mutually exclusive.

New Software Features in Release 12.2(2)XK

Cisco IOS Release12.2(2)XK on the Cisco ICS 7750 supports the following new features:

MCGP Control of Analog Interfaces

DTMF Relay

Supplementary Services

Caller ID

Modem Pass-Through Using H.323

Fax Pass-Through Using H.323

MCGP Control of Analog Interfaces

Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) and Simple Gateway Control Protocol (SGCP) are call control protocols that run between call agents (CA) and gateways in a packet telephony network.

As in the earlier implementations of the two protocols, a gateway handles the translation between audio signals and the packet network. These gateways interacts with a CA, also called a Media Gateway Controller (MGC), which performs signal and call processing on the gateways' calls.

On the Cisco ICS 7750, MRP and ASI cards can provide an interface between analog (RJ11) calls from a telephone and the VoIP network. This feature supports analog (POTS) calls for both SGCP and MGCP on the Cisco ICS 7750.

DTMF Relay

DTMF uses specific pairs of frequencies within the voice band for signaling. Over a 64-kbps pulse code modulation (PCM) voice channel, these signals can be carried without difficulty. However, when using a low-bit-rate codec for voice compression, the potential exists for DTMF signal loss or distortion. Using an out-of-band signaling method for carrying DTMF tones across a VoIP infrastructure provides an elegant solution for these codec-induced symptoms.

Supplementary Services

When MGCP is used, Cisco CallManager controls routing and tones and provides supplementary services to the gateway (MRP or ASI card). MGCP provides call preservation (calls are maintained during failover and failback), redundancy, dial plan simplification (no dial peer configuration is required on the gateway), hookflash transfer, and tone on hold. MGCP-controlled gateways do not require an MTP to enable supplementary services such as hold, transfer, call pickup, and call park.

Caller ID

The Cisco ICS 7750 supports Caller ID functions on analog FXS, FXO-M1, and FXO-M2 voice interfaces, and on the FXS mode of the Direct Inward Dialing (DID) voice interface card, VIC-2DID.

Caller ID (sometimes called CLID for calling line identification) is an analog service offered by a Central Office (CO), which supplies calling party information to subscribers. Typically, the calling party number and the name appears on a station (also called extension) device such as a PC telephony software application screen or the display on a telephone. Type 1 Caller ID provides the calling party information while the call is ringing, and Type 2 Caller ID provides the additional convenience of calling number display while the recipient is on another call. In this release, only Type 1 Caller ID is supported.

Modem Pass-Through Using H.323

Modem pass-through over VoIP provides for the transport of modem signals through a packet network by using pulse code modulation (PCM)-encoded packets.

Modem pass-through performs the following functions:

Repressing processing functions like compression, echo cancellation, high-pass filter, and voice activity detection (VAD)

Issuing redundant packets to protect against random packet drops

Providing static jitter buffers of 200 milliseconds (ms) to protect against clock skew

Differentiating modem signals from voice and fax signals, indicating the detection of the modem signal across the connection, and placing the connection in a state that transports the signal across the network with the least distortion

Maintaining a modem connection reliably across the packet network for a long duration under normal network conditions

Modem pass-through offers the following benefits:

Detecting modem tones

Passing modem signals over the WAN

Performing proper switchover to pass modem traffic on a bearer channel

Detecting modems at speeds up to V.90

Fax Pass-Through Using H.323

The Cisco ICS 7750 allows you to pass through fax signals on one line at a time. To use the fax pass-through feature, the gateway must be configured to detect the fax tone and switch codec.


Note When you are using G.729 on one port, the other port automatically uses the G.711 protocol. Use the same codec type for both the originating gateway and the terminating gateway. The g711ulaw codec is required for T1, and the g711alaw codec is required for E1.


Important Notes

The following sections contain important notes about Cisco IOS-related issues that can apply to the Cisco ICS 7750. (Also, see the "Related Documentation" section.)

Networks with Cisco 2600 and Cisco 3600 Series Routers

In a network environment that uses Cisco 2600 series routers, Cisco 3600 series routers, and Cisco ICS 7750s, to avoid intermittent call setup failures all platforms should run Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2)XK or later.

Software Images on MRP and ASI Cards

All of the MRP and ASI cards in a Cisco ICS 7750 must run the same Cisco IOS image.

Caveats

Caveats describe unexpected behavior or defects in Cisco IOS software releases. Severity 1 caveats are the most serious caveats, severity 2 caveats are less serious, and severity 3 caveats are the least serious of these three severity levels.

All caveats in Release 12.2 T are also in Release 12.2(2)XK. For information on caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, refer to the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T document. For information on caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2, refer to the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 document. These documents list severity 1 and 2 caveats, and are located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.


Note If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can also use the Bug Toolkit to find select caveats of any severity. To reach the Bug Toolkit, log in toCisco.com and click Service & Support: Technical Assistance Center: Tool Index: Bug Toolkit. Another option is to go to http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl. 


Resolved Caveats

The caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2)XK.

If you are using a H.323 gateway (such as an MRP card) that is running IOS Release 12.2(1)XD2, where the Music On Hold (MOH) feature has been enabled in Cisco CallManager 3.1(1), when you call from a Cisco IP Phone to an analog telephone and press the Hold softkey on the Cisco IP Phone, the listener on the analog telephone will not hear the MOH (CSCdu81104).

The FXS port of the ASI81 and ASI160 cards may send an unexpected hookflash indication if the handset is lifted when the phone is ringing and if the phone is connected to an FXS port of the ASI81 or ASI160. As a result, if the remote (PSTN) side of the call supports hookflash, the caller may hear a dial tone. While the remote side is issuing a dial tone, conversation cannot take place. However, once the timeout period (set by the remote side) is reached, the dial tone ceases and conversation can begin.

A typical topology with this problem is an analog telephone connected to the PSTN by way of an FXO port on the same ASI81 card. (CSCdu41511)

Callers using a Cisco IP Phone may hear echoing of DTMF tones if the call is going out by way of a Cisco voice gateway to a PSTN or PBX and if the caller uses the keypad for dialing. This problem is more noticeable if dialing takes place in the absence of any conversation (when the echo canceler has not converged) and if echo cancellation coverage is set longer than required. (CSCdu41730)

If you run multiple voice calls over a single DSP on an MRP card that is configured for echo cancellation coverage of 32 milliseconds on its voice ports, some voice quality degradation might be noticeable. (CSCdr66308)

By default, fax relay is supported if a fax machine is directly connected to the MRP using an FXS port. However, fax relay is not supported if the fax call is routed through a T1 line. (CSCdu06186)

Outgoing calls through the FXO port would fail if the called number is more than 10 digits, such as for long distance calls. (CSCdu41173)

During the system boot, the MRP initializes, but no configuration (or only a partial configuration) is present. Because of this, the ICS 7750 system discovery fails or does not finish discovering the cards. (CSCdu07653)

If the Cisco ICS 7750 MRP card is loaded with Cisco IOS release 12.1(5)T2 or 12.1(5)T7, the IP network might be variably and incorrectly masked after the MRP boots. (CSCdu06266)

Open Caveats

This section describes open caveats in Release 12.2(2)XK.

Pulse dialing is not supported on ASI or MRP analog interfaces when using MGCP. (CSCdv30796)

There is no workaround.

If you are using MGCP on an ASI or MRP FXO-M1 interface, battery-reversal answer supervision is not supported. (CSCdv43225)

There is no workaround.

Connections over T1 endpoints might experience unacceptable levels of background white noise, or "hiss," if Voice Activity Detection (VAD) is enabled on the MRP card. VAD, which is enabled by default, causes the Cisco IP Phone 7960 to generate a low level hiss to simulate the background circuit noise users experience on non-IP connections. (CSCdr31192)

Workaround—Disabling VAD can solve this problem, however, if you disable VAD on a network that exhibits a significant amount of jitter (for example, greater than 100 milliseconds per second), latency becomes noticeable to the user in the form of delay and packet loss. Also, if the codec clocks are out of sync among the devices participating in the call, latency increases for the duration of the call. For example, if the codec clock at the transmitting end is 100 parts per million faster than the codec clock at the receiving end, latency increases to one-half second over the course of a one hour long connection (at 8 kHz).

When placing a call through an MRP card to an IVR system, greeting messages played by the IVR might be clipped. (CSCds04904)

There is no workaround.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco TAC is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two types of support are available through the Cisco TAC: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.

Inquiries to Cisco TAC are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

Which Cisco TAC resource you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.

Cisco TAC Web Site

The Cisco TAC Web Site allows you to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco services contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to the following URL to register:

http://www.cisco.com/register/

If you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, and you are a Cisco.com registered user, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If you have Internet access, it is recommended that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses issues that are classified as priority level 1 or priority level 2; these classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer will automatically open a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml

Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled; for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). In addition, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
