DPNSS Configuration

Basic Settings


Note Any changes that are made to the basic settings will cause the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to temporarily deactivate the DPNSS Port. A warning will tell you that calls in progress will be lost, and confirmation is requested before changes are submitted.


Options are:

Activate or deactivate DPNSS Port
Puts the DPNSS port (Port 2) in or out of service.


Note You cannot activate the port if no channels are commissioned.


Channel Commissioning (for up to 30 channels)
All channels are set to In Use when the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is supplied. Channels that are not required may be decommissioned.

DPNSS A/B Orientation
Ensure the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is set to the opposite A/B Orientation from that of the Port on the PBX or other equipment to which the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is connected.

X or Y Channel Orientation
Ensure Channel Orientation is set opposite to the orientation for each of the Channels on the PBX or other SCN equipment with which the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is communicating.

Select or deselect Initiate DLC Establishment
If checked, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will attempt to establish each LAP by sending SABMEs on each commissioned channel.

Select or deselect Clear on Establish
If checked, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will send a CRM on each LAP as it is established.

Channel Allocation - Low to High / High to Low
This dictates whether channels get allocated to calls starting at the highest or the lowest enabled channel.

Advanced Settings

Available settings include the following:

Proxy Diversion Service: If service is enabled and a call from the QSIG network to the DPNSS network is diverted, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will intervene to ensure that the diversion takes place. If service is disabled, calls from the QSIG network that encounter diversion at a DPNSS PBX are likely to fail. This setting does not affect calls from DPNSS, either to QSIG or transparently over QSIG to other DPNSS extensions.

You can configure diversion service to act on behalf of all calls (All), a specific dialed number (Exact), calls matching a part of the dialed number (Match) or calls that do not match (No Match) a given part of a dialed number.

Proxy Divert Address Filter: The filter represents the digits against which the dialed number is matched, if the Proxy Diversion Service is set to Exact, Match or No Match.

Operator Recall Timeout: This setting only applies if Proxy Diversion is enabled. If a call is diverted by an Operator in the DPNSS network to a phone in the QSIG network, the phone to which it has been diverted will ring for the number of seconds that is configured and then will revert to the operator (unless answered). If the Operator Recall Timeout is disabled, the call will continue ringing at the QSIG extension.

Enable ISDX VMS Emulation: Checking this setting allows extensions on QSIG PBXs to be integrated into a Voice Mail System (VMS) that is hosted on an ISDX PBX.

ISDX VMS Diversion on No-reply Timer: See DPNSS Message Waiting Implementations and ISDX Voice Messaging Systems.

Default ISDX VMS Number: See DPNSS Message Waiting Implementations and ISDX Voice Messaging Systems.

ISDX VMS Diversion Count Threshold: See DPNSS Message Waiting Implementations and ISDX Voice Messaging Systems.

Enable Supplementary String Generation: This setting adds any supplementary service strings to the Selection field.

Enable Incoming Name Services: This setting allows DPNSS text strings to be mapped into Called and Calling party names in QSIG.

Enable Divert Messages: This setting allows DPNSS text strings to be mapped into QSIG Diversion service messages as names.

Enable Proxy Mapping of Calling Party Category: When Proxy Mapping of Calling Party Category is enabled, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will generate appropriate calling part category elements from QSIG name elements.

The Calling Party Category `Operator' match string, Calling Party Category `PSTN' match string, Calling Party Category `ISDN' match string and the Calling Party Category `Decadic' match string fields define the strings to be matched for each type CPC that can be generated in this way.

Segment long ISRMs: When checked, this field allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to generate ISRM(i) - SSRM(c) sequences where the incoming Q.931 Setup message that indicates sending complete would result in a generated ISRM(c) that is exceeding the maximum DPNSS PDU size.

Incoming Channel Mapping: If setting is configured to Fixed, the channel that is used by the incoming call must get used for the outgoing call. If setting is configured to Switched, a different channel may get negotiated in the outgoing Q.931 call, and the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will switch the bearer channel internally.

Transparent Transport Service Support: This setting enables the generation of information that is necessary to transport the original DPNSS messaging transparently across a QSIG network.

Re-attempt Transparency after transfer: If the box is checked, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will attempt to work transparently to a new destination following call transfer.

DPNSS Services

Configuration options include the following:

Enable Virtual Calls: Enabling virtual calls allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to process non-bearer-related signalling used by many supplementary services.

SIC mapping for Telephony calls: This option allows a received "Speech" to be mapped to a Q.931 Bearer Capability of either "Speech" or "3k1 Audio". Additionally, progress indicators may also get generated ("Speech + PI" or "3k1 Audio + PI").

Enable Data Calls: This option allows 64kBit unrestricted digital calls to be accepted by the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway.

Enable BSS-M and Enable BSS-P: These fields control the insertion of Bearer Service Selection (BSS) strings by the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway.

Enable CLC Mapping: If CLC mapping is enabled, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will attempt to map received Calling Line Category information into Q.931 Progress Indicators.

Enable RTI Mapping: If RTI mapping is enabled, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will attempt to map received routing information into Q.931 Progress Indicators.

Enable Text to Name Mapping: If option is enabled, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will generate QSIG Name Supplementary Service invocations from DPNSS Text strings.

Enable Three Party Working: This option allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to operate DPNSS Call Transfer Services.

Enable Call Offer: This option allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to operate DPNSS Call Offer Services.

Enable Route Optimisation Service: This option allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to interwork the DPNSS Route Optimisation Service to the QSIG Path Replacement Service.

PBX accepts Route Optimisation Invite string: Normally checked, this option can get used to suppress sending ROP-INV string to a DPNSS PBX that cannot accept it by unchecking the box.

Restrict Route Optimisation Call Ref. mappings: This option can be used to limit the length of the embedded call reference when mapping it from the ROP-INV to Path Replacement.

Enable Diversion Service: This option allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to operate Diversion Services.

Diversion Validation response time: This option specifies the time (in seconds) that the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will wait before autonomously generating a positive response to Diversion Validation Request from the DPNSS PBX or network.

Enable Loop Avoidance Insertion: If option is enabled, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will insert a loop avoidance (LA) string containing the Number of Further Transits value in the outgoing signalling.

Loop Avoidance mapping: If option is set to Simple the DPNSS LA value gets mapped directly to the Q.931 transit Counter, but if option is set to Enhanced it gets treated as though it is passing through a transit PBX before it is forwarded.

Include Loop Avoidance in CRM: If the treatment of the LA results in the call clearing and this is checked, the LA string will get included in the Clear Request Message that is generated by the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway.

En-bloc Call Forward Digit Count: You can use this option to turn overlap dialed DPNSS calls into en-bloc calls. When the specified number of digits has been received, the call gets forwarded en-bloc. Be aware that this is only appropriate for networks with fixed-length dial plans.

En-bloc Call Forward Timeout: This option acts as an interdigit timer that will forward the call when it expires. It restarts as each digit arrives. This option proves suitable for networks with variable-length dial plans, but introduces a post dial delay.

Default Destination Address: You can use this field to provide a default destination address when no dialed digits are received from the Q.931/QSIG PBX or network.

Number of leading Destination Digits to strip: You can use the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to strip leading digits such as node numbers from the dialed number, if required.

Enable Service Spoofing: If this option is enabled, Transfer Hold and Diversion Validation Service may get spoofed on behalf of the Q.931 network. (The services must also be enabled.)

Three Party Working EEM Spoofing: When this option is enabled, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will generate EEM messages to resolve interaction between spoofed Transfer and ROP services.

Q.931 Configuration

Basic Settings


Note Any changes that are made to the basic settings will cause the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to temporarily deactivate the Q.931 Port. A warning will be given that calls in progress will be lost, and confirmation is requested before changes are submitted.


Options include the following:

Activate Q.931 Port 1: Checking this option puts the Q.931 port (Port 1) in service.

Layer 1 Framing: Select CRC4 or Double Frame layer 1 Framing.

Orientation: Select User or Network end for layer 2 framing to be the opposite of the connected PBX or network.

Initiate Link Establishment: This option determines how the link layer (layer 2) will be established. Select Never if the connected equipment will always initiate link establishment. Select Immediate if the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is to initiate the link, or select Call if the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway has only to establish the link if it has a call to deliver and the link layer has not yet been established.

Action on Layer 2 Reset: The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway may react to a layer 2 reset or loss and re-establishment of the link in three ways while calls are in progress. The response may be to Ignore the layer 2 event, to send a Status message for each active call, or to send a Status Enquiry message for each call.

Overlap Signalling Support: The support for overlap dialed calls can be configured to:

None when calls in both directions will be converted to en-bloc

Incoming when incoming calls overlap, outgoing calls will be converted to en-bloc

Outgoing when outgoing call overlap, incoming calls will be converted to en-bloc, or

Both Ways when all calls are treated as overlap calls.

Advanced Settings

Available settings include the following:

Layer 3 Protocol Profile: Select the protocol type from QSIG - (ETSI QSIG 1995), Euro-ISDN (ETS300-403-1), AT&T TR-41449, or ETSI (Generic Q.931).

Service Message Supported: Valid only in TR41449 profile, if checked this flag controls the response to a Service message with global call reference that is being received. The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will respond with Service Ack message if option is enabled or a Status message with cause of Message Not Implemented if disabled.

Call Reference Length: Setting allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to accept one-octet or two-octet Call references. If Single is selected, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will only send and receive one octet length call references. If Double is selected, only call references that are two octets in length will be deemed valid. When Both is selected, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will accept either length for incoming calls and generate two-octet Call References on outgoing calls.

Send Sending Complete Element: Unchecking the box allows the Sending Complete Information Element to be suppressed in outgoing en-bloc calls.

Send Connected Number Element: Unchecking the box allows the Connected Number Information Element to be suppressed in outgoing Connect messages.

Enable Calling Line Id: Unchecking the box allows the Calling Party Number Information Element to be suppressed in outgoing messages.

Connected Number Element Identifier: This setting allows the encoding to be selected according to the connected network requirements. 76/0x0C provides compatibility with older TR41449 implementations that use that coding.

Include Octet 3a in Connected Number: Checking this box will enable the transmission of Presentation and Screening Indicators in Connected Number Information Elements.

Support Progress Indicator in Call Proc. and Disconnect: Checking this box will enable any available progress information to be sent in Call Proceeding and Disconnect messages.

Support ECMA Progress Description Codes: Checking this box will allow the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to process ECMA progress description codes in addition to the default ITU-T codes.

Change Status Element Supported: Checking this box enables the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to process Change Status Information elements.

Channel Preference for Outgoing Calls: This setting controls the encoding of the outgoing Channel Id Information Element and the behaviour of the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway when requested channels are unavailable. Set to Preferred if you are using switched channel mapping. Otherwise, use Exclusive.

Incoming Channel Mapping: If this setting is configured to Fixed, the channel that is used by the incoming call must be used for the outgoing call. If this setting is configured to Switched, a different channel may be used in the outgoing Q.931 call, and the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will switch the bearer channel internally.

B-channels Initial State: This setting sets the initial state of each channel to either Free (and in-service) or Out of Service.

Response to Status Enquiry in Null-State: This setting sets the response of the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to an incoming Status Enquiry message received when the call is in the NULL state. The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway may respond by sending either a Release Complete message or a Status message.

Response to Status Enq. with Global Call Ref: This setting sets the response of the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway to an incoming Status Enquiry message with the Global call Reference. The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway may be configured to Always Null and ignore the message or Send Status to send the message.

Send Status to Errored Optional Elements: This setting dictates whether the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway should send a Status message in response to a message that contains an errored Information Element. If it sends the status message, this setting dictates whether it should be the call status Before Processing or After Processing the received message.

Clear Forward if No Response to Setup: This parameter allows the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway behaviour on expiry of the Q.931 T303 timer to be specified. The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway may be configured to Always send Release Complete forward, Never send it, or send when configured as the Network end only.

Symmetrical Call State: When this setting is checked, call state reported in Status messages will be QSIG. Otherwise, the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will report Q.931 user or Network end state dependent on configuration.

En-bloc Call Forward Digit Count: Overlap dialed Q.931/QSIG calls can be turned into en-bloc calls. When the specified number of digits has been received, the call gets forwarded en-bloc. This is only appropriate for networks with fixed-length dial plans.

En-bloc Call Forward Timeout: This setting acts as an interdigit timer that will forward the call when it expires. It gets restarted as each digit arrives. This setting proves suitable for networks with variable-length dial plans but introduces a post dial delay.

Administration

To access Administration functions, you must have Advanced Access.

Access Control

Access Control settings allow the user passwords and Non-Use Timeout Period to be set. Alphanumeric characters, with the exception of space, are legal for passwords. The Non-Use Timeout Period specifies the time that is allowed for a user to be logged into the Gateway Management Interface without actively using it before being automatically logged out when another user attempts to log in. It may be set from 3 to 15 minutes.

Software Upgrade

The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway gets supplied with an embedded default operational software. It can only get upgraded with software that is of the same type as the embedded software.

Software Upgrade allows a new version of the software application to be downloaded to the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway by using an FTP server.

The IP address of the FTP server, a User Name and a Password are all required to access the FTP server. The directory and filename of the new application on the FTP server is also required. Selecting Upgrade will download the new application to the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway.

This new application will overwrite an existing previously downloaded application but not the default application. The new application will run next time the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is reset, but only if the new software has been selected by using the Software Selection facility. Instructions on installing the software version will be provided with the new software.

Configuration Backups

Be aware that configuration backups are release specific. After the software upgrade completes successfully and is operational on the unit, a new configuration backup should be saved.

The procedure is as follows:


Step 1 Upgrade to the new version of the software.

Step 2 Select the version of the software to run next time the unit is restarted.

Step 3 Restart the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway unit. The configuration that is stored on the unit automatically gets loaded into the new version of software.

Step 4 Perform a Back Up Configuration as described in the Gateway section. A configuration backup file that is compatible with the newly activated software gets produced.



Note You cannot restore a backed-up configuration file to a system that is running a different version of software to that under which the backup file was saved.



Note Cisco Systems, Inc., recommends that each backup configuration file be given a unique name that includes the software release number. This will ensure that, if the configuration backup files are stored in a central location, a new backup file does not overwrite an existing file that may be required for a different location.


Software Selection

The Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway comes supplied with an embedded default operational software.

Software Selection provides a choice between using the new software downloaded or the embedded default software that is supplied with the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway.

Reboot the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway

Selecting Reboot the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway will, after confirming the action, immediately halt and restart the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway.


Note Be aware that this action is service affecting. Calls in progress will get lost and service will be interrupted until the Cisco VG30D Voice Gateway is fully operational again.
