MGCP Layer 2 Teardown for IUA DPNSS Trunks


Revised: —, OL-10612-01
First Published: June 2006

The MGCP Layer 2 Teardown for IUA DPNSS Trunks featurette prevents layer-2 voice calls from being lost during a wide-area-network (WAN) failure by tearing them down and notifying the PBX of the out-of-service trunk.

If a fractional PRI is configured for backhaul, you must configure the feature to take down the entire E1 or T1 trunk.

Information About MGCP Layer 2 Teardown for IUA DPNSS Trunks

ISDN User Adaptation Layer (IUA) Digital Private Network Signaling System (DPNSS) is an industry-standard interface between a PBX and an access network. It expands the facilities normally available only between extensions on a single PBX to all extensions on PBXs that are connected together in a private network.

When an IUA DPNSS trunk on a voice gateway loses registration, many PBXs continue to transmit calls on the trunk. This feature enables the gateway to signal the PBX to play a busy tone or stop transmitting calls on the trunk, thus preventing calls from being lost and, in some cases, tying up all the DS0s on the trunk.

How to Configure MGCP Layer 2 Teardown for IUA DPNSS Trunks

To configure MGCP Layer 2 Teardown for IUA DPNSS Trunks, perform the following steps.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. voice-port

4. busyout monitor backhaul

5. busyout monitor action {graceful | shutdown [alarm blue]}

6. exit

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode. Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

voice-port slot/port:group

Example:

Router(config)# voice-port 2/0:15

Enters voice-port configuration mode for the specified voice port.

Note Command syntax varies by platform.

Step 4 

busyout monitor backhaul

Example:

Router(config-voiceport)# busyout monitor backhaul

Configures a voice port to enter busyout-monitor state with backhaul-L3 connectivity monitoring during a WAN failure.

Step 5 

busyout monitor action {graceful | shutdown | [alarm blue]}

Example:

Router(config-voiceport)# busyout monitor action shutdown alarm blue

Places a voice port into busyout state. Keywords are as follows:

graceful—Graceful busyout state

shutdown [alarm blue]—D-channel shutdown busyout state, optionally with a blue alarm, also known as an alarm-indication signal (AIS)

Step 6 

exit

Example:

Router(config-voiceport)# exit

Exits the current mode.

DPNSS

Digital Private Network Signaling System. An industry standard interface defined between a PBX and an access network. DPNSS expands the facilities normally available only between extensions on a single PBX to all extensions on PBXs that are connected together in a private network.

DPNSS was originally derived from British Telecom's Digital Access Signaling System I (DASS I), and enhanced where necessary to meet private network requirements.

ISDN

Integrated Services Digital Network. Communication protocol offered by telephone companies that permits telephone networks to carry data, voice, and other source traffic.

Command Reference

This section documents new and modified commands only:

Modified Command

busyout monitor action

New Command

busyout monitor backhaul

busyout monitor action

To place a voice port into graceful or shutdown busyout state when triggered by the busyout monitor, use the busyout monitor action command in voice-port configuration mode. To remove the voice port from the busyout state, use the no form of this command.

busyout monitor action {graceful | shutdown [alarm blue]}

no busyout monitor action {graceful | shutdown [alarm blue]}

Syntax Description

graceful

Graceful busyout state.

shutdown

D-channel shutdown busyout state.

alarm blue

(Optional) Shutdown state with a blue alarm, also known as an alarm-indication signal (AIS).


Command Default

Default voice busyout behavior without this command is a forced busyout.

Default voice busyout behavior for PRI depends on whether or not the ISDN switch type supports service messages:

If the switch type supports service messages, default voice busyout behavior is to transmit B-channel out-of-service (OOS) messages and to keep the D channel active. ISDN switch types that support service messages are NI, 4ESS (user side only), 5ESS (user side only), and DMS100.

If the switch type does not support service messages, default voice busyout behavior is to bring down the D channel.

Command Modes

Voice-port configuration

Command History

Release
Modification

12.2(13)T

The busyout monitor action graceful command was introduced on the following platforms: Cisco 2600 series, Cisco 2600XM, Cisco 2691, Cisco 3640, Cisco 3660, Cisco 3725, and Cisco VG200.

12.3(6)

The busyout monitor action shutdown command was introduced on the following platforms: Cisco 1700 series, Cisco IAD2420 series, Cisco 2600 series, Cisco 2600XM series, Cisco 2691, Cisco 3600 series, Cisco 3700 series, Cisco 4224, Cisco 7200 series, Cisco 7301, Cisco 7400 series, Cisco MC3810, Cisco WS-X4604-GWY, and Cisco VG200.

12.3(7)T

The busyout monitor action shutdown command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)T and support was added for the Cisco IAD2430 series.

12.4(9)T

This command was introduced to combine the busyout monitor action graceful and busyout monitor action shutdown commands. The shutdown alarm blue keywords were added.


Usage Guidelines

Use this command to control busyout behavior that is triggered by the busyout monitor command.

This command with the graceful keyword busies out the voice port immediately or, if there is an active call on this voice port, waits until the call is over.

This command with the shutdown keyword has the following attributes:

Before Cisco  IOS Release 12.2(8)T, when voice busyout is triggered on a PRI voice port, the D channel is deactivated until the busyout trigger is cleared. Some ISDN switch types, however, support in-service and OOS Q.931 messages that permit B channels to be taken out of service while still keeping the D channel active. Starting in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)T for these ISDN switch types, OOS messages are sent and the D channel is kept active when a voice busyout is triggered.

This keyword is available only for PRI voice ports.

Examples

The following example shows analog voice-port busyout state set to graceful:

voice-port 2/0:15
 busyout monitor action graceful

The following example shows E1 PRI voice-port busyout state set to shutdown:

voice-port 1/1:15 (E1 PRI)
 busyout monitor gatekeeper
 busyout monitor action shutdown

The following example shows T1 PRI voice-port busyout state set to shutdown:

voice-port 0/1:23 (T1 PRI)
 busyout monitor gatekeeper
 busyout monitor action shutdown
