Configuring a Route Pattern

Overview

Before installing the CTMS Administration software on your Cisco MCS-7845 Media Convergence Server, you need to perform the following configuration tasks in Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Cisco Unified CM):

Determine if security is required on multipoint calls. If security is required, manually download certificates from Cisco Unified CM. Then upload these certificates to CTMS.

Create a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) security profile. This security profile will be applied to the SIP trunk between CTMS and Cisco Unified CM. Each secure SIP trunk has a unique X.509 subject name and therefore requires its own SIP security profile. Unsecure SIP trunks can share a SIP security profile.

Create a SIP trunk. The SIP trunk is used for communication between Cisco Unified CM and CTMS.

Create route patterns. A route pattern comprises a string of digits (an address) and a set of associated digit manipulations that route calls to a route list or a gateway. Route patterns are used for routing calls that match CTMS conference numbers to the corresponding CTMS.

Prerequisites

Before starting the tasks in this chapter, make sure that the following conditions are met or that you understand the following information:

Cisco Unified CM is running and using Release 6.1.3 or 7.0.2; If you decide to deploy the new CTS Release 1.5 Enhanced Phone User Interface (MIDlets), you must install Cisco Unified CM Release 7.0.2.

Cisco TelePresence System is running Release 1.4x or later software.

For additional information about configuring Cisco Unified CM for Cisco TelePresence System, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Installation Guide for the Cisco TelePresence System.

For compatibility information, refer to Compatibility Information for Cisco TelePresence System Release 1.7

Limitations

Be aware of the following Cisco Unified CM configuration limitation:

Do not enable duplex streaming mode in Cisco Unified CM. Enabling this mode causes issues with certain CTMS functionality, such as audio add-in and calls on hold.

Logging into the Cisco Unified CM Administration Application

To log into the Cisco Unified CM Administration application:


Step 1 Open a web browser.

Step 2 Access a web browser that is supported by the Cisco Unified CM Administration application from any user PC in your network. In the address bar of the web browser, enter the following URL:

https://CUCM-server-name

where CUCM-server-name is the name or IP address of the server.


Note You may need to specify the address of the server where Cisco Unified CM is installed. If your network uses DNS services, you can specify the hostname of the server. If your network does not use DNS services, you must specify the IP address of the server.


Step 3 Log in with your assigned administrative privileges.

Step 4 Select Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration in the Navigation field at the upper right corner of the page and click Go to return to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration home page.


Creating a SIP Trunk Security Profile

To create a SIP trunk security profile:


Step 1 Click System. Under Security, click SIP Trunk Security Profile.

Step 2 Click the Add New button at the bottom of the page or click the + sign at the top of the page.

Step 3 Enter the settings as indicated in Table 4-1 to configure the SIP trunk security profile. Leave default settings for fields not included in Table 4-1.

.

Table 4-1 SIP Trunk Security Profile Settings 

Field
Required
Setting

Name

Yes

Enter a text string identifying this SIP trunk security profile.

Description

No

Enter a text string describing this SIP trunk security profile.

Device Security Mode

Yes

For information about Device Security Mode, see the following documentation:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/security/7_0_1/secugd/secutrnk.html#wp1071125

Incoming Transport Type

Yes

Select TCP+UDP.

If Encrypted is selected, TLS will be entered automatically.

Outgoing Transport Type

Yes

Select TCP.

X.509 Subject Name

Yes (for secure signaling)

Inspect the downloaded LSC to find the X.509 subject name. See the "Security" section on page 3-10 for information about locating the LSC and subject name.

Incoming Port

Yes

Enter 5060 for non-secure trunk. Enter 5061 for authenticated or encrypted.

If running SIP security, then enter a different unused port, for example 5275.


Step 4 Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.



Note For more information about security options, see the following documentation:

Creating a SIP Trunk

To create a SIP trunk:


Step 1 Click Device. Click Trunk.

Step 2 Click the Add New button at the bottom or click the + sign at the top of the Trunk Configuration page.

Step 3 Select SIP Trunk from the Trunk Type pull-down menu, then click Next.

Step 4 Enter the settings as indicated in Table 4-2 to configure the SIP trunk. Leave default settings for fields not included in Table 4-2.

Device Information

Device Name

Yes

Enter a text string identifying this SIP trunk.

Description

No

Enter a text string describing this SIP trunk.

Device Pool

Yes

Select Default.

Call Classification

Yes

Choose OnNet. If this parameter is set to OffNet, CTS endpoints do not answer ad hoc calls from the CTMS. Any SIP trunk set to OffNet disables the auto-answer feature.

SIP Information

Destination Address

Yes

Enter the IP address of the CTMS.

SIP Trunk Security Profile

Yes

Select the SIP trunk security profile that you created for CTMS.

SIP Profile

Yes

Select Standard SIP Profile.

Configuring a Route Pattern

A route pattern allows a Cisco Unified CM-managed device to access another device by dialing its number. Such devices may include gateways, Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch (CTMS) systems, or Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 5230 (CUVC) MCUs. Each device requires its own unique route pattern.

To configure a route pattern:


Step 1 Click Call Routing. Under Route/Hunt, click Route Pattern.

Step 2 Click the Add New button at the bottom or click the + sign at the top of the Route Pattern Configuration page.

Step 3 Enter the settings as indicated in Table 4-3 to configure the SIP trunk. Leave default settings for fields not included in Table 4-3.

.

Table 4-3 Route Pattern Configuration Settings 

Field
Required
Setting

Pattern Definition

Route Pattern

Yes

Enter the route pattern, including numbers and wildcards (do not use spaces); for example, for NANP, enter 9.@ for typical local access, or 8XXX for a typical private network numbering plan. The uppercase characters A, B, C, and D are valid characters.

Note See the "Wildcards and Special Characters in Route Patterns and Hunt Pilots" section in the Cisco CallManager System Guide for more information about wildcards.

Note The route pattern that is configured must match the access settings numbers that are configured in the CTMS.

Description

No

Enter a text string describing this route pattern.

Gateway/Route List

Yes

Select the SIP trunk that you created for CTMS.

Call Classification

Yes

Choose OnNet.
