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(4)XL.

New Software Features in Release 12.2(4)XL

Cisco IOS Release12.2(4)XL on the Cisco ICS 7750 supports Caller ID, as described below.

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.

Important Notes

The following sections contain important notes about Cisco IOS-related issues that can apply to the Cisco ICS 7750. (Also, see the "Caveats" 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(4)XL 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(4)XL. 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 - Release 12.2(4)XL

This section describes unexpected behavior that is fixed in Release 12.2(4)XL.

Management

CSCdw65903

An error can occur with management protocol processing. Please use the following URL for further information:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/bugtool/onebug.pl?bugid=CSCdw65903 

Resolved Caveats

The caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)XL.

If you have a PVDM-4 (1 DSP), a PVDM-8 (2 DSPs), or a PVDM-12 (3 DSPs) installed in the first MRP PVDM slot and a PVDM-16 (4 DSPs) installed in the second MRP PVDM slot, the eighth DSP (the last of the four DSPs in the PVDM-16) will not be available for processing voice traffic. (CSCdv25648)

Open Caveats

This section describes open caveats in Release 12.2(4)XL.

If you place a call that passes through an FXO port on the Cisco ICS 7750 and that call is routed through an FXS port on a Lucent PBX, you might hear a beep coming from the telephone that is connected to the Lucent PBX, or the line might be disconnected and an error tone might be heard (CSCdv16369).

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).

If you attempt to place a call through a MFT-T1 or MFT-E1 port (on an MRP card) that is directly connected to another MRP MFT-T1/MFT-E1 and configured with the connection trunk command (which creates a VoIP call between two MRPs), the call will not go through or you will experience one-way voice (CSCdv46240).

If you are not sure whether this condition is present, after entering the connection trunk command, if you enter the show voice port summary command, the command output does not show that the voice-port is "trunked."

A sample topology where this is observed is shown below:

Analog telephone

|

MRP1 (FXO)

|

T1

|

MRP2 (FXS)

|

Connection trunk (VoIP)

|

MRP3 (FXO)

|

MRP2 (FXS)

|

Analog telephone

There is no workaround.

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.
