New and Changed Information

The following section lists the new hardware and software features supported by the Cisco ICS 7750, beginning with Cisco IOS software Release 12.2(13)ZH.

New Software Features in Release 12.2(13)ZH

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(13)ZH on the Cisco ICS 7750 supports the following features:

Enhanced ITU-T G.168 Echo Cancellation

E1 PRI QSIG and BRI QSIG (H.323)

E1 PRI QSIG Backhaul (MGCP)

Enhanced ITU-T G.168 Echo Cancellation

This feature provides an alternative to the default Cisco-proprietary G.165 echo canceller (EC). The new extended EC provides improved performance for trunking gateway applications and provides a configurable tail length that supports up to 64 ms of echo cancellation.

The IOS command-line interface (CLI) has been modified to make the extended EC the default on the Cisco ICS 7750.

The extended EC offers the following improvements over the Cisco default EC:

Complies with the ITU-T G.168 (2000) standard in addition to maintaining support for the old ITU-T G.165 standard.

Increases the configurable tail length from a maximum of 32 ms to a maximum of 64 ms.

For additional information about this feature, including the voice echo-canceller extended command, refer to the document Enhanced ITU-T G.168 Echo Cancellation.

E1 PRI QSIG and BRI QSIG (H.323)

This feature enables Cisco CallManager and the Cisco ICS 7750 to interoperate with legacy private branch exchanges (PBXs) in corporate networks, in H.323 mode. QSIG protocol support allows Cisco voice switching services to connect private branch exchanges (PBXs), key systems (KTs), and central office switches (COs) that communicate by using the QSIG protocol, which is becoming the standard for PBX interoperability in Europe and North America. QSIG is a variant of ISDN D-channel signaling. With QSIG, Cisco networks emulate the functionality of the public-switched telephone network (PSTN), and QSIG signaling messages allow the dynamic establishment of voice connections across a Cisco wide-area network (WAN) to a peer router, which can then transport the signaling and voice packets to a second private integrated services network exchange (PINX).

The Cisco voice packet network appears to the traditional QSIG PBXs as a distributed transit PBX that can establish calls to any PBX, non-QSIG PBX, or other telephony endpoint served by a Cisco gateway, including non-QSIG endpoints. When originating and terminating on QSIG endpoints, the QSIG messages are passed transparently across the network; the PBXs are responsible for processing and provisioning the supplementary services. When linking QSIG and non-QSIG endpoints served by a Cisco packet voice gateway, only basic calls are supported. In addition, all switched voice connections must be established and torn down in response to QSIG control messages.

E1 PRI QSIG Backhaul (MGCP)

PRI/Q.931 signaling backhaul is the transport of PRI signaling (Q.931 and above layers) between a media gateway (such as a Cisco access server, router, or concentrator) and a media gateway controller (such as Cisco CallManager). The media gateway controller is also referred to as a Virtual Switch Controller (VSC). Communication between the media gateway and the VSC is managed by the Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP).

The signaling backhaul takes place between a media gateway and the VSC. The media gateway provides an interface between the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and the packet network (IP or ATM). The VSC provides call processing and gateway control.

The general principle behind signaling backhaul is to pass as many layers of a protocol stack as possible through a gateway directly to the VSC.

Signaling backhaul usually occurs at a common boundary for all protocols. For ISDN, the signaling backhaul takes place at the boundary between Layer 2 (Q.921) and Layer 3 (Q.931). The lower layers of the protocol are terminated and processed on the gateway. The upper layers of the protocol are backhauled, or transported, to the VSC using Cisco Reliable User Datagram Protocol (RUDP) over IP. RUDP provides autonomous notification of connected and failed sessions and guarantees delivery of signaling protocols across an IP network.

Signaling backhaul provides the additional advantage of distributed protocol processing. This permits greater expandability and scalability, while offloading lower-layer protocol processing from the VSC.

Important Notes

The following sections contain important notes about Cisco IOS-related issues that can apply to the Cisco ICS 7750.

Codec Complexity Changes for BRI VICs

Before Release 12.2(13)ZH, MRPs in the Cisco ICS 7750 had to use the high-complexity image in order to support the VIC-2BRI-NT/TE. Beginning with Release 12.2(13)ZH, the following changes apply:

The medium-complexity image is supported on BRI VICs

The medium-complexity image is the default image on MRPs. (To use the high-complexity image, enter the codec complexity command.)

Assuming that you are using the default configuration (high-complexity), a single DSP (a PVDM-4) is sufficient for the VIC-2BRI-NT/TE. (Before Release 12.2(13)ZH, two DSPs [a PVDM-8] were required to support the VIC-2BRI-NT/TE.)


Note For additional information about the use of codecs and DSPs, refer to the "Configuring the Cisco ICS 7750" chapter in the Cisco ICS 7750 Installation and Configuration Guide.


Software Images on MRP and ASI Cards

All of the MRPs and ASIs 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.

Caveats in Release 12.2 T are also in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(13)ZH8. 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.


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 to Cisco.com and click Technical Support:
Tools & Utilities: Software Bug Toolkit. Another option is to go to http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl. 


Open Caveats - Release 12.2(13)ZH

This section describes unexpected behavior in Release 12.2(13)ZH.

CSCea88896

A problem has been observed when the following Cisco ICS 7750 topology is in use:

Telephone --- PSTN --- VIC-2DID --- IOS Gateway (MRP) --- VoIP--- IP phone

In this topology, if both MGCP and H.323 are configured on the gateway (MRP), after a caller places a call through the PSTN to the IP phone, the caller does not hear a ringback tone when the IP phone rings.

The same problem occurs if the IP phone is replaced with an analog phone that is connected to the gateway (MRP) through an FXS port.

The following is a sample configuration that would exhibit this problem, provided that the MGCP stack is active:

mgcp
mgcp call-agent a.b.c.d service-type mgcp version 0.1
!

dial-peer voice 1 pots
 application mgcpapp
!

That is, if you are using this configuration, the DID ports that are under H.323 control do not generate a ringback tone.

Workaround—Downgrade the MRP IOS image to Release 12.2(8)YN.

CSCdy19867

When a call to the PSTN is being made through MRP FXS and FXO interfaces on which the forward-digits all command has been entered, it is possible that the DTMF tones might be echoed back to the call originator, due to a suspected problem with the echo canceller.

Workaround—Tuning the echo canceller settings and disabling the forward all digits functionality on the necessary FXS and FXO interfaces should help solve this problem. Refer to the following documentation for more information:

Cisco IOS Voice, Video, and Fax Configuration Guide

IP Telephony Solution Guide

Voice Parameters and Tuning Guide

If you are using an MRP or ASI with an E1 or T1 CAS trunk, if you change the TDM clocking on an E1 or T1 controller from an export clock configuration to an import clock configuration, and if the E1 or T1 controller is shut down when its clocking is changed, then configuring a DS0 group and entering a no shut command on that controller will cause intermittent call failures on some time slots.

For example, if interface T1 0/0 is configured as an export clock and interface T1 0/1 is also configured as an export clock, the following sequence of commands will cause intermittent call failures on T1 0/1:

    controller T1 0/0
    shutdown
    no ds0-group 0 timeslots 1-24
    no tdm clock T1 0/0

    controller T1 0/1
    shutdown
    no ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-24
    no tdm clock T1 0/1

    tdm clock T1 0/0 voice export line
    tdm clock T1 0/1 voice import T1 0/0 internal

    controller T1 0/0
    ds0-group 0 timeslots 1-24 type e&m-wink-start
    no shutdown

    controller T1 0/1
    ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-24 type e&m-wink-start
    no shutdown 

Workaround—Do not shut down the E1 or T1 controller before changing its tdm clock configuration. Based on the example shown above, the following configuration will work:

    controller T1 0/0
    no ds0-group 0 timeslots 1-24
    no tdm clock T1 0/0

    controller T1 0/1
    no ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-24
    no tdm clock T1 0/1

    tdm clock T1 0/0 voice export line
    tdm clock T1 0/1 voice import T1 0/0 internal

    controller T1 0/0
    ds0-group 0 timeslots 1-24 type e&m-wink-start

    controller T1 0/1
    ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-24 type e&m-wink-start
