About Release 5.0.70.205

The VXSM Release 5.0.70.205 follows VXSM Release 5.0.70.

New Features in Release 5.0.70.205

Release 5.0.70.205 is a maintenance release that corrects a number of caveats that were open in the 5.0.70 release. This release contains no new features.

New Features in Release 5.0.70

Support for Media Gateway Control Protocol

VXSM Release 5.0.70 supports the Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP 1.0) in addition to the two protocols (TGCP and H.248) that are supported in the previous release. At any time only one gateway control protocol is supported on a VXSM card. The protocol is user selectable when the VXSM image is loaded from the PXM disk. This is accomplished through the PXM setrev command using the -ccp <CallControlProtocol> parameter.

Support for MGCP 1.0 permits interoperability between VXSM and Cisco PGW media gateway controllers.

NFAS with D-channel Backup

In VXSM Release 5.0.70, when performing ISDN PRI backhaul, the D-Channel in a Non-Facility Associated Signaling (NFAS) voice stream can be protected with the use of a backup D-channel.

NFAS voice streams employ 479 B channels plus 1 D-channel that controls up to a maximum of 20 DS1s interfaces. If the D channel fails it can bring down all the 479 bearer B channels.

Multiprotocol Service Module Interoperability

For AAL2 trunking applications, VXSM can now operate in conjunction with a Multiprotocol Service Module (MPSM) in which the MPSM provides the interface to the ATM network. Interworking with the MPSM enables the MGX Voice Gateway to support IMA, ATM and Frame Relay services with channelized capability on DS1 and DS0 levels.

The MPSM card must be configured for ATM context using the MPSM cnfclictx atm command. After the context is set to ATM, provisioning is performed with the upln, addport and addcon command sequence. For more details, please refer to the MPSM user documentation.

New Features in Release 5.0.20

The following new features were introduced in the 5.0.20 release of VXSM.

Additional Media Gateway Control Protocol

The Trunking Media Gateway Control Protocol (TGCP) is now supported for communication between the VXSM card and the Media Gateway Controller in switching applications. This is in addition to the H.248 protocol supported in earlier releases. VXSM does not support both protocols simultaneously. The user must select which one of the two protocols is to be used when the VXSM image is loaded initially from the PXM.

PRI Backhaul

In application where ISDN D channel signaling lines are connected to VXSM, the VXSM card can be configured to extract the layer 3 (Q.931) packets and backhaul them to the media gateway controller

For communication between VXSM and the media gateway controller the protocol stack is based upon the Cisco proprietary Session Manger and RUDP (Reliable UDP).

Communication between the VXSM and the gateway controller is session based. One session set must be established. The session set contain one or two session groups (one for non-fault tolerant or two for fault tolerant configurations). Each session group can support up to four RUDP sessions.

Differentiated Services (DiffServ)

VXSM provides support for the quality of service (QOS) feature known as DiffServ. The DiffServ feature permits devices at the edge of the network to specify the contents of the Type of Service (TOS) field in the IPv4 header as a differentiated services point code. This point code can then be used by routers in the network to determine per hop behavior (PHB).

Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA)

VXSM provides support for CALEA intercepted calls. The CALEA feature functions only in switching applications using the TGCP gateway control protocol.

During call setup, the media gateway controller uses the TGCP commands of CRCX and MDCX with CALEA parameters to signify that a call is to be subject to CALEA surveillance. During a CALEA call, the VXSM sends a duplicate of the call contents to a TGCP defined CALEA server.

VXSM supports up to 60 concurrent CALEA calls. Statistics collection for CALEA streams is not supported.

CALEA support is an orderable item. Customers who require this feature must specify the VXSM CALEA firmware image at the time of order.

Voiceband Data Profiles and Event Mapping

Within a voice circuit call, VXSM now supports the handling of voiceband data such as clear channel, fax, and modem transmissions. VXSM can detect tones associated with voiceband data on both the voice and IP sides of the networks, and act accordingly. Upon detection of a voiceband tone, VXSM will perform the necessary upspeed procedure that may involve the following processing:

Codec manipulation

Silence suppression

Disabling echo cancellation

Modify packetization period, gain, DC offset, and jitter parameters.

VXSM informs the other (remote) end of the connection when an upspeed procedure is to be performed. There are two different methods by which upspeed at the remote end is triggered.

The first method is Fax/Modem passthrough with a Cisco proprietary protocol in which a Named Signaling Event (NSE) is sent to the remote end.

The second method is Fax/Modem passthrough with IP side tone detection and relies on both ends of the connection being able to detect tones on both the TDM and IP sides. This method is only supported with TGCP or MGCP call setup.

Fax/Modem passthrough features are as follows:

FAX/Modem Provisioning redundancy.

Upspeed codec from G711 to G711.

Upspeed codec from G711 to G726.

Upspeed codec from G729 to G711 with VXSM to VXSM with low priority.

Upspeed codec from CCD to G711 with VXSM to VXSM with low priority.

Upspeed codec from CCD to G726 with VXSM to VXSM with low priority.

Graceful upgrade for fax/modem provisioning.

Detection of the following tones, CNG(1100hz), CED/ANS(2100hz), /ANS(2100hz with phase reversal, and V.21 Fax Preamble.

The voiceband event mapping feature permits VXSM to determine how VBD events are to be handled. When this feature is configured, VBD events are mapped to different event handling functions categorized by the attributes defined in different kinds of profiles, such as fax relay profile, or VBD profile.

Firmware Images

For each VXSM card type (OC-3, T1/E1, or T3), two firmware images are available, namely, Non-CALEA and CALEA. At order time, the user must specify whether a Non-CALEA or CALEA image is required.

The Non-CALEA image supports three Media Gateway Call Control (MGC) protocols, namely, H.248, MGCP, and TGCP. However, the image supports only one protocol at a time. The user must choose between the H.248, MGCP, and TGCP versions when the image is first loaded from the PXM using the setrev command.

The CALEA image supports TGCP only. However, this protocol must be explicitly selected when the image is loaded from the PXM using the setrev command.

Upgrading from an Earlier VXSM Release

VXSM can be gracefully upgraded (configuration is preserved) from VXSM Release 5.0.70 so long as the original and the upgraded images are of the same version (for example Non-CALEA, TGCP to Non-CALEA, TGCP). When loading or upgrading a boot or runtime image to a VXSM card, users must observe the following caution.


Caution Many of the commands involved in loading or upgrading boot and runtime images can take several minutes to execute completely. If the user resets or otherwise disturbs the VXSM card during a loading or upgrading process, the card can easily be damaged to the extent that it must be returned to the factory for repair.

THE REAPPEARANCE OF THE COMMAND PROMPT AFTER A COMMAND IS ENTERED DOES NOT INDICATE THAT THE IMAGE LOAD OR UPGRADE HAS BEEN COMPLETED.

After the execution of the burnboot, clrsmcnf, loadrev, or setrev commands, the user must execute either a dspcds or dsprev command periodically to verify that the state of the VXSM card being loaded or upgraded is either Active, Standby, or Failed.

ONLY WHEN THE CARD IS DISPLAYED TO BE IN ONE OF THESE STATES IS IT SAFE TO GO TO THE NEXT STEP.

Feature Clarifications

Online Diagnostic feature as applied to VXSM.

The online diagnostics feature as implemented on the PXM45 card is supported on VXSM Release 5.0. When enabled, using the PXM45 cnfdiag command, this feature performs non-intrusive diagnostic tests that use four of the VXSM's DSP codecs.

If the user executes the VXSM dspdspcodecpools command, the resulting display shows the four codecs being used (for diagnostics) and subtracts them from the remaining available codecs (see example below).

MGX8850.9.VXSM.a > dspdspcodecpools
=============================================================
                 DSP codec capacity usage
=============================================================

Codec pool	 				Current utilized					Current available
					capacity (#calls)	 				capacity (#calls)
==========					 =================					=================
G711 family 							4 				8060
G729/G726/T.38 family	 						0 				4030

The online diagnostics feature does not reduce the maximum number of 8064 codecs available for calls on the VXSM card. If the number of call requests on the VXSM is sufficiently high, the online diagnostic feature is disabled automatically and the four codecs are made available for active calls.

DSP Resources under Mixed Codec Conditions

When the same codec is used to setup calls on the gateway the available DSP resources will be fully utilized. However when different codecs are used to setup calls the amount of utilizable DSP resources may be limited in certain cases due to fragmentation.

Fragmentation is said to have occurred when the available capacities on two different DSP resources have enough available capacity to support a call of a particular codec type but cannot support that codec type individually.

Consider two DSP resources whose available capacity is 1 unit each making the total available capacity 2 units. However a codec that requires 2 units cannot be supported in the system because the available capacities have been fragmented across the individual DSP resources.

The DSP allocation algorithm on VXSM does make an attempt to smooth the effects of fragmentation but towards the end, fragmentation could happen as the future pattern of calls cannot be predicted beforehand.

Configuring Switching and Trunking Applications

The simultaneous operation of mixed applications (Switched VoIP applications and Non-switched Trunking applications) is not supported on a VXSM card. However, both applications can be supported in the Media Gateway by using multiple VXSM cards.

DDTS Issue
Description

CSCei79385

Headline: Call rejected due to mgcp_connect_peer_vox_call_leg failure

Symptoms: There is 0.01% of DSP channel failures.This causes about 0.01% of call failures as well.

Conditions: DSP OPEN failures. And then there gateway initiated DLCX's.

Workaround: None

CSCei88677

Headline: AAL2:cnfcon fails giving Internal Software Error (Agere fails)

Symptom: Cnfcon fails on modifying lpcr and rpcr on VXSM master side of bearer.

Conditions: It happens when the following conditions are met -

1. The service-type for the connection is CBR.

2. The old and new PCR values (adjusted to the next higher multiple of 50)

are the same.

Workaround: Set the new PCR to a different value so that condition 2 above is not met.

CSCeh12805

Headline: ip availability should not block entering configuration

Symptom: addmgcgrpmgc,cnfxgcpmgc can not be done if cnfmgc returns error.

Conditions: cnfmgc can fail if DNS server is not configured for this mgc domain or DNS server is not reachable.

Workaround: Make sure mgc domain name entry is present in the DNS server configured and DNS server is available. If this can not be done then add IPs statically on the gateway till the DNS server is back up.

CSCei89988*

Headline: AAL2:Difference in Utilized cell rate after downspeed(cust prof 110)

Symptom: When using custom 110 profile after a upseed and downspeed the CAC usage will be slightly higher.

Conditions: This happens because after a downspeed the correct packetization period for the profile is not used.

Workaround: None besides using a slightly higher BW for the PVC

CSCeh47956*

Headline: sysDiag reported online diag failure for VXSM causing reset

Symptom: Online diag failure

Conditions: The error happened under intermittent hardware failure condition of the ATMizer parity on the one card.

Workaround: Online diag may be turned off by issuing cnfdiag slot# disable However, the errors noted was one-time occurrence for one card where the hardware failure occurred, and was un-reproducible on another chassis. The card will not be reset if there is no redundancy (as the diagnostic failures are Major, not fatal). If there is redundancy set up, the card would be reset.

CSCeh48876*

Headline: dspchanloops shows the opposite of configured chan loop type

Symptoms: VXSM displays wrong loopback type information with dspchanloops command.

Conditions: This symptom was observed while displaying dspchanloops command. Workaround: Use dspchanloop command to display loopback information.

CSCeh56654

Headline: AAL2MP:VSIC-2-VSIMAJORERR on VXSM-RED after PXM45 reset

Symptom: VSI error log on the system

Conditions: This error is for releasing TCB buffers and it happens when PXM card gets reset in the shelf without having redundancy for PXM card.

Workaround: The error is harmless but needs to be identified

CSCeh36036

Headline: AAL2MP: Delcon failed on slave, stuck in Mismatch, after Switched

Symptoms: VXSM was confogired for redundancy. VXSM displays "Invalid opcode in received passup response msg!" error instead of appropriate error when delcon command was executed while Standby is coming up.

Conditions: This symptom was observed while deleting slave connection during standby card was in initialization state.

Workaround: Don't delete the slave connection while standby is coming up.

CSCeh39863*

Headline: AAL2MP:SYS-3-RUNAWAYTASK error logged during Offline Diag

Symptom: A SYS-3-RUNAWAY warning message is logged during offline diag execution.

Conditions: There is no condition which will cause the message to be logged.

WorkAround: There is no affect on the node and card under test, other than the warning message being logged.

CSCeh46000*

Headline: PcmTraceTas hogging mem.buffer (all caller-ctc_msg_evt_deliver)

Symptom: PcmTraceTask blocks while taking an Empty Binary Semaphore. This could be viewed as a ssi memory leak.

Conditions: The task will remain blocked until PCM tracing has started.

Workaround: None

Further Problem Description:

The resource will be held up until PCM tracing is performed in order to debug any issue. With that the Empty Binary Semaphore is released and the Pcmtrace task unblocks. This is a very minor issue and the memory held is very small and it does not vary. There is not impact on the performance of other tasks and there is no resource contention with other tasks.

CSCeh43530*

Headline: Ecan still ON during V.34 modem calls with AAL2 M->M configuration

Symptom: When make trunking modem call (CED with PR), during upspeed, the ECAN on the original side kept as ON. The modem call passed successfully.

Conditions:

It is happen only if both CAC are set to master.

Workaround:

Set CAC to slave in one side if it is allowed; otherwise none.

CSCeh50745*

Headline: cardMon task exception error caused card reset.

Symptom: When resetcd is performed on a VXSM card there is a very slight chance that.it will encounter a Vector 7 Exception and then reset itself again. It should.then come up normally.

Conditions: A large amount of VXSM resetcd calls should lead to this problem.

Workaround: None is needed since it is self-correcting. Once it hits this Vector 7

exception it will reset itself and come up normally afterwards.

CSCei06436*

Headline: GW sends 510 for valid AUCX message (with Conn ID only)

Symptom: An AUCX command with no RequestedInfo or an empty RequestedInfo is rejected with 510, protocol error in TGCP.

Conditions: Always.

Workaround: None.

CSCie06437*

Headline: GW sends 200 for AUEP with forbidden parameters

Symptom: An AUEP command with forbidden params is wrongly rejected as "200 Endpoint exists"

Conditions: Always.

Workaround: None.

CSCei53902

Headline: Stuck calls on VXSM (crml_nw_reserve_cac failures)

Symptom: A lot of CRCX failures due to '403, Gateway does not have available resource'.

Conditions: This happens whenever a DIM timeout happens for an open channel requests and the subsequent close channel request. The resources for such calls are not released resulting in subsequent call attempts on that physical endpoint failing.

Workaround: None.

CSCej00528*

Headline: DSP core number ## crashed

Symptom: Card resets/switches-over

Condition: DSP resources are leaked when doing a dellapd. This causes over utilization of DSP resources when running near capacity steady-state calls after addlapd/dellapd sequences.

Workaround: If lapd channels must be deleted, issue dellapd and switchover to redundant card immediately.

CSCef92799

Headline: In AAL2 trunking, vad and ec while uspeeding gives wrong state

Symptom: This is only for trunking upspeed (fax call) between VXSM and VISM and the fax call from VXSM to VISM which means the call is detected on VISM side. During upspeed, the ECAN of the VXSM changed to disable, but the ECAN of VISM kept as enable. The reason of ECAN of VXSM changed to disable is VISM sending NSE193 to VXSM.

Conditions:

(1) Add cid between VXSM and VISM as:

VAD on

ECAN on

(2) Send fax call from VXSM to VISM (V.21 Fax pre. tone detected on VISM side)

(3) During upspeed check ECAN for both VXSM cid and VISM cid:

ECAN off in VXSM cidECAN on in VISM cid

(4) the fax call passed successful

Workaround: None.

CSCin96917*

Headline:Codec Change from PCMU to G726-32/G729 causes call to drop

Symptom: The problem will happen when we do a non-calea call involving a codec change from lower complexity to higher complexity (say G711 to G726) after call cut-through on a CALEA image. If it is a normal image this will not happen.

Conditions: This is a baseline problem. For any mid-call codec change a close and re-open of the DSP channel is involved. In these cases even though no CALEA is configured for the call the APIL module sets the CALEA configuration bit. When the bit is acted upon by CM the call fails.

Workaround: The fix is to set the CALEA bits only if a CALEA IP server configuration is found in CRML.

CSCen91151*

Headline: AAL2:cnfcon fails giving Internal Software Error (Agere fails)

Symptom: Cnfcon fails on modifying lpcr and rpcr on VXSM master side of bearer.

Conditions: It happens when the following conditions are met -

1. The service-type for the connection is CBR.

2. The old and new PCR values (adjusted to the next higher multiple of 50)

are the same.

Workaround: Set the new PCR to a different value so that condition 2 above is not met. Otherwise, delete and re-add the connection.

CSCeh48550*

Headline: 30% of modem passthrough call connect in 14400

Symptom: About 30% (15/49) modem passthrough calls connect at 14400 instead of 50K when the initial codec is G726-32. This problem is more consistent from the IAD->VXSM direction. some calls in the VXSM->IADs direction also connect in 14400, but fewer than the other directions. When the initial codec is G711, 90%+ of the calls connect at 50K and above. the upspeed codec used is G711.

Conditions:

Workaround: No workaround. Use G711 as the initial codec.

CSCei02696*

Headline: dspconcacs/dspxgcpendptcons not working if ced event = none

Symptom: dspconcacs/dspxgcpendptcons not working correctly

Conditions: set ced event to none

Workaround: use dspxgcpendptcon for each endpt

CSCei58143*

Headline: SYS-2-DCARPCCBFAILED Errors due to tRpc task after runrev

Symptom: SYS-2-DCAPRPCCBFAILED Error messages

Conditions: Loadrev/runrev

Workaround: NONE

Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.


Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
