Feature Overview

V.92

To remain current with industry needs, the ITU-T V.90 modem standard recommendations have been enhanced. The new standard, V.92, meets the need for a digital modem and analog modem pair on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). V.92 improves the upstream data signaling rate and adds new features that enhance modem usability. These new modem protocols and standards are implemented at the modem level.

This feature module introduces the V.92 Quick Connect feature on Cisco AS5300 and Cisco AS5800 universal access servers with Cisco MICA Portware Version 2.9.1.0.


Note The other feature introduced with the new V.92 standard is V.92 Modem on Hold, which is documented in the V.92 Modem on Hold for Cisco AS5300 and Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Servers feature module. V.92 Modem On Hold and V.92 Quick Connect can be enabled independently of each other.


V.92 is implemented at the modem level as new modem protocols and standards. The new V.92 features co-reside with existing portware features and have no impact on the hardware configuration of either the Hex Modem Module (HMM) or Double Density Modem Module (DMM), including memory requirements. Cisco IOS software is responsible for controlling the features and displaying the new statistics. V.92 and V.44 support is bound with the rest of the Cisco IOS device driver components.


Note V.92 and V.44 are packaged together with Cisco IOS software. For more information about V.44, refer to the V.44 LZJH Compression for Cisco AS5300 and Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Servers feature module.



Note This feature does not support pulse code modulation (PCM) upstream as defined in the V.92 ITU standard. This feature does, however, interoperate with modems that support PCM upstream.


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.

Disconnect reasons and modem states and statistics (link information) have been added or modified to support V.92 Quick Connect. Table 1 lists the new V.92 Quick Connect states, and Table 2 lists the new link information parameters.

AT Commands and S-Registers

V.92 Quick Connect is enabled by default and is controlled with standard AT commands and S-registers. S29 is used to enable V.92 sequence detection and S63 is used to enable Quick Connect negotiation, both of which are enabled by default. The S63 S-register controls the feature through the ANSpcm signal. You can choose the power level of the ANSpcm signal, which defaults to -12dBm (the transmit power level for the United States). The ATSn=v and ATSn? AT commands are used to configure V.92 Quick Connect on Cisco MICA platforms.

To disable V.92 Quick Connect or to set a different ANSpcm value, you can use a modemcap (for example, v92_v44:MSC=s62=8s63=0s21=15s29=12), or you can set the S29 register to any number other than 12. Table 3 lists the S-registers used to enable and disable the V.92 Quick Connect feature.

Note If the V.92 Quick Connect feature is enabled using S29=12, and QC is disabled using S63=0, then the QC Exchange Link Information Parameter is updated to show if QC was requested. However, completely disabling the feature by setting S29 to a value other than 12 disables the reporting of QC requests.


For detailed information about the AT commands and S-registers that are used to configure the V.92 Quick Connect feature on Cisco MICA platforms, refer to the AT Command Set and Register Summary for MICA 6-Port Modules.

Benefits

Improved Port Use

This feature improves ISP port usage because of the reduction in connect time.

Standard Modem Feature

V.92 is a standard modem feature that is offered as a no-cost upgrade to the installed system.

Restrictions

Configuration of these features using S-registers is carried out by using modemcaps (AT commands). Cisco IOS software does not check these values to guarantee that they are valid. The behavior of invalid values is determined by the module.

Cisco IOS software is packaged as multiple program image types with varying capabilities. Because not all modem interfaces support Quick Connect and because images may be built to support specific modem types, not all software images contain functions to control Quick Connect. In addition, the modems that do support Quick Connect implement their control functions differently. Therefore, registry functions are used to interface between local authorization and Quick Connect control for modems.

Determining Platform Support Through Cisco Feature Navigator

Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets that support specific platforms. To get updated information regarding platform support for this feature, access Cisco Feature Navigator. Cisco Feature Navigator dynamically updates the list of supported platforms as new platform support is added for the feature.

Cisco Feature Navigator is a web-based tool that enables you to determine which Cisco IOS software images support a specific set of features and which features are supported in a specific Cisco IOS image. You can search by feature or release. Under the release section, you can compare releases side by side to display both the features unique to each software release and the features in common.

To access Cisco Feature Navigator, you must have an account on Cisco.com. If you have forgotten or lost your account information, send a blank e-mail to cco-locksmith@cisco.com. An automatic check will verify that your e-mail address is registered with Cisco.com. If the check is successful, account details with a new random password will be e-mailed to you. Qualified users can establish an account on Cisco.com by following the directions at https://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do

Cisco Feature Navigator is updated regularly when major Cisco IOS software releases and technology releases occur. For the most current information, go to the Cisco Feature Navigator home page at the following URL:

Availability of Cisco IOS Software Images

Platform support for particular Cisco IOS software releases is dependent on the availability of the software images for those platforms. Software images for some platforms may be deferred, delayed, or changed without prior notice. For updated information about platform support and availability of software images for each Cisco IOS software release, refer to the online release notes or, if supported, Cisco Feature Navigator.
