Related Parameters

UseTFTP

Domain

AlttftpURL

AlttftpURL

Description

Use this parameter to specify the IP address or URL of an alternate TFTP server in a Cisco CallManager environment. This string is needed if the DHCP server does not provide the alternate TFTP server IP address. When the TftpURL parameter is set to a non-zero value, this parameter has priority over an alternate TFTP server IP address supplied by the DHCP server.

Optionally, you can include the path prefix to the TFTP file to download.

For example, if the alternate TFTP server IP address is 192.168.2.170 or www.cisco.com, and the path to download the TFTP file is in /ata186, you can specify the URL as 192.168.2.170/ata186 or www.cisco.com/ata186.


Note From the voice configuration menu, you can only enter the IP address; from the web configuration page, you can enter the actual URL.

Related Parameters

UseTFTP

Domain

TftpURL

EncryptKey

Description

This parameter specifies the encryption key that is used to encrypt the Cisco ATA configuration file on the TFTP server.

The cfgfmt tool, which is used to create a Cisco ATA binary configuration file (see the "Using Encryption With the cfgfmt Tool" section on page 3-13), automatically encrypts the binary file when the EncryptKey parameter has a value other than 0. The cfgfmt tool uses the rc4 encryption algorithm.

If this parameter value is set to 0, the Cisco ATA configuration file on the TFTP server is not encrypted.


Note Cisco recommends using the stronger Cisco ATA encryption method, which requires the use of the EncryptKeyEx parameter. For more information, see the "EncryptKeyEx" section.


For examples on how to upgrade from the EncryptKey parameter to the stronger encryption method that uses the EncryptKeyEx parameter, see the "Examples of Upgrading to Stronger Encryption Key" section on page 3-16.

Value Type

Hexadecimal string

Range

Maximum number of characters: 8

Default

Related Parameters

UseTFTP

TftpURL

EncryptKeyEx

EncryptKeyEx

Description

This parameter specifies an encryption key that is stronger than the key specified with the EncryptKey parameter. This stronger key is used to encrypt the Cisco ATA configuration file on the TFTP server.


Note Cisco recommends using the EncrpytKeyEx parameter instead of the EncryptKey parameter for the strongest possible encryption of the Cisco ATA configuration file.


When the EncryptKeyEx parameter is set to a non-zero value, the Cisco ATA uses this value as the encryption key and ignores any value that has been set for the EncryptKey parameter. The cfgfmt tool, which is used to create a Cisco ATA binary configuration file (see the "Using Encryption With the cfgfmt Tool" section on page 3-13), automatically encrypts the binary file using the stronger rc4 encryption algorithm.

When EncryptKeyEx is used for encryption, the Cisco ATA searches for the configuration file with the format ata<macaddress>.x. on the TFTP server.

If the value of the EncryptKeyEx parameter is 0, then the Cisco ATA uses the value of the EncryptKey parameter for encryption.


Note The cfgfmt tool (version 2.3) program generate an ata<macaddress>.x file in addition to an ata<macaddress> file if the EncryptKeyEx parameter is specified. You should place both such configuration files on the TFTP server.


For examples on how to upgrade from the EncryptKey parameter to the stronger encryption method that uses the EncryptKeyEx parameter, see the "Examples of Upgrading to Stronger Encryption Key" section on page 3-16.

Value Type

Hexadecimal string of the form:

Rc4PasswdInHex/macinHex_12

rc4KeyInHex_n is a hexadecimal string of one to 64 characters.

/macInHex_12 is the optional extension consisting of a forward slash ( / ) followed by the six-byte MAC address of the Cisco ATA to which the configuration file will be downloaded.

LBRCodec

Description

This parameter is used for selecting the low-bit-rate codec. The following values are valid:

0—Select G.723.1 as the low-bit-rate codec (available only for connections 0 and 2).

3—Select G.729A as the low-bit-rate codec (available only for connection 0). When G.729 is used, only one FXS port can use G.729.

When operating with a low-bit-rate codec, the Cisco ATA can support either two G.723.1 connections or one G.729 connection. The selection of G.723.1 or G.729 must be statically configured. When G.723.1 is the low-bit-rate codec, each FXS port is allocated with one G.723.1 connection. When G.729 is used, only one FXS port can use G.729.

If LBRCodec=0, then both Cisco ATA FXS ports can operate with the following codecs:

Number of codecs=3

Codec[0]=G.711µ -law

Codec[1]=G.711A-law

Codec[2]=G.723.1

If LBRCodec=3, check the setting of bit 21 in the ConnectMode parameter (see the "ConnectMode" section) to determine if G.729 is enabled for the Phone 1 or Phone 2 FXS port.

If LBRCodec=3, then the Phone 1 FXS port can operate with the following codecs:

Number of codecs=4

Codec[0]=G.711µ-law

Codec[1]=G.711A-law

Codec[2]=G.729 (only if Bit 21 of the ConnectMode parameter is set to 0)

Tone Configuration Parameters

If you are running Cisco CallManager 3.3(3) with the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer, you should configure call-progress tones using the Network Locale option on the Cisco CallManager configuration page. For more information about using the Network Locale option, see the "Using the Cisco IP Telephony Network Locale Option" section on page 4-5.

If the desired network locale does not exist, you can configure call-progress tones using the Cisco ATA parameters described in this section. For the Cisco ATA to use the Cisco ATA tone parameter values described in this section, you must set bit 0 the Cisco ATA ConnectMode parameter to the value 1. For more information on the ConnectMode parameter, see the "ConnectMode" section. If you do not set this bit value to 1, the Cisco ATA will use the Cisco CallManager default tone settings for the United States.

The Cisco ATA supports the following tone parameters:

DialTone

DialTone2

BusyTone

ReorderTone

RingBackTone

CallWaitTone

AlertTone

The Cisco ATA supports two types of tone-parameter syntax—basic format and extended format. Basic format is used in most countries; use the extended format only if the country in which the Cisco ATA is used requires this format.

This section covers all the call-progress tones that the Cisco ATA supports, and contains the following topics:

Tone Parameter Syntax—Basic Format

Tone Parameter Syntax—Extended Formats

Recommended Values

Specific Tone Parameter Information


Note For detailed recommendations of tone-parameter values by country, see Appendix E, "Recommended Cisco ATA Tone Parameter Values by Country."


Tone Parameter Syntax—Basic Format

Each tone is specified by nine integers, as follows:

parametername: NumOfFreqs,Tfreq1,Tfreq2,Tamp1,Tamp2,Steady,OnTime,OffTime, TotalToneTime

parametername is the name of the tone.

NumOfFreqs is the number of frequency components (0, 1 or 2).

Tfreq1 and Tfreq2 are the transformed frequencies of the first and second frequencies, respectively. Their values are calculated with the following formula:

32767 * cos (2*pi*F/8000)

where F is the desired frequency in Hz. Set this value to 0 if the frequency does not exist.

The range of each value is -32768 to 32767.

For negative values, use the 16-bit 2's complement value. For example, enter -1 as 65535 or as 0xffff.

Tamp1 and Tamp2 are the transformed amplitudes of the first and second frequencies, respectively. Their values are calculated with the following formulas:

32767 * A * sin(2*pi*F/8000)

A (amplitude factor) = 0.5 * 10^((k+10-(n-1)*3)/20)

where F is the desired frequency in Hz, k is the desired volume in dBm, and n is the number of frequencies. The ^ symbol means to the order of.

Steady controls whether the tone is constant or intermittent. A value of 1 indicates a steady tone and causes the Cisco ATA to ignore the on-time and off-time parameters. A value of 0 indicates an on/off tone pattern and causes the Cisco ATA to use the on-time and off-time parameters.

OnTime controls the length of time the tone is played in milliseconds (ms).

Specify each value as a number of samples with a sampling rate of 8 kHz. The range of each value is 0 to 0xffff. For example, for a length of 0.3 seconds, set the value to 2400.

OffTime controls the length of time between audible tones in milliseconds (ms).

Specify each value as a number of samples with a sampling rate of 8 kHz. The range of each value is 0 to 0xffff. For example, for a length of 0.3 seconds, set the value to 2400.

TotalToneTime controls the length of time the tone is played. If this value is set to 0, the tone will play until another call event stops the tone. For DialTone, DialTone2, BusyTone, ReorderTone, and RingBackTone, the configurable value is the number of 10 ms (100 = 1 second) units.

For the remaining tones, the configurable value is the number of samples with a sampling rate of 8 kHz.


Note All tones are persistent (until the Cisco ATA changes state) except for the call-waiting tone and the confirm tone. The call-waiting tone, however, repeats automatically once every 10 seconds while the call-waiting condition exists.


Tone Parameter Syntax—Extended Formats

Two types of extended format exist for the Cisco ATA tone parameters:

Extended Format A—This format can be used for the following tone parameters:

DialTone

DialTone2

BusyTone

RingbackTone

CallWaitTone

AlertTone

Extended Format B—This format can be used only for the ReorderTone parameter.

Extended Format A

Each tone is specified by 11 integers, as follows:

parametername:NumOfFreqs,Tfreq1,Tamp1,Tfreq2,Tamp2,NumOfOnOffPairs,OnTime1, 
OffTime1,OnTime2,OffTime2,TotalToneTime

parametername is the name of the tone.

NumOfFreqs = 100 + the number of frequencies in the tone. (Therefore, NumOfFreqs = 101 for one frequency, and 102 for two frequencies.)

Tfreq1 and Tfreq2 are the transformed frequencies of the first and second frequencies, respectively. Their values are calculated with the following formula:

32767 * cos (2*pi*F/8000)

where F is the desired frequency in Hz. Set this value to 0 if the frequency does not exist.

The range of each value is -32768 to 32767.

For negative values, use the 16-bit 2's complement value. For example, enter -1 as 65535 or as 0xffff.

Tamp1 and Tamp2 are the transformed amplitudes of the first and second frequencies, respectively. Their values are calculated with the following formula:

32767 * A * sin(2*pi*F/8000)

A (amplitude factor) = 0.5 * 10^((k+10-(n-1)*3)/20)

where F is the desired frequency in Hz, k is the desired volume in dBm, and n is the number of frequencies. The ^ symbol means to the order of.

NumOfOnOffPairs is the number of on-off pairs in the cadence of the tone.

Valid values are 0, 1 and 2. Use 0 if the tone is steady.

OnTime1 and OnTime2 values are the lengths of time the tone is played for the first and second on-off pairs of a cadence, respectively. (See Figure 5-1 for a graphical representation.)

Specify each value as a number of samples with a sampling rate of 8 kHz. The range of each value is 0 to 0xffff. For example, for a length of 0.3 seconds, set the value to 2400.

OffTime1 and OffTime2 values are the lengths of time that silence is played for the first and second on-off pairs of a cadence, respectively. (See Figure 5-1 for a graphical representation.)

Specify each value as a number of samples with a sampling rate of 8 kHz. The range of each value is 0 to 0xffff. For example, for a length of 0.3 seconds, set the value to 2400.

Figure 5-1 Cadence With Two On-Off Pairs

TotalToneTime controls the length of time the tone is played. If this value is set to 0, the tone will play until another call event stops the tone. For DialTone, DialTone2, BusyTone, ReorderTone, and RingBackTone, the configurable value is the number of 10 ms (100 = 1 second) units.

For the remaining tones, the configurable value is the number of samples with a sampling rate of 8 kHz.


Note All tones are persistent (until the Cisco ATA changes state) except for the call-waiting tone and the confirm tone. The call-waiting tone, however, repeats automatically once every 10 seconds while the call-waiting condition exists.


Extended Format B

The ReorderTone parameter specifies the tone that plays when the called number is not available or the external circuit is busy. This tone can consist of:

Up to three frequencies played simultaneously and a cadence of up to three on-off pairs. The first on-off pair can repeat multiple times before the second on-off pair plays.

For example, a 400 Hz frequency plays four times for 0.75 second followed by 0.1 second of silence after each play and then plays one time for 0.75 second followed by 0.4 second of silence. This pattern can be set to repeat until another call event stops the pattern.

Up to three frequencies played sequentially with a cadence of up to three on-off pairs

For example, the frequencies 900 Hz, 1400 Hz, and 1800 Hz play sequentially for 0.33 seconds each with no silence after the first and second frequencies but one second of silence after the third frequency.

The syntax of the ReorderTone parameter is specified by 17 integers, as follows:

ReorderTone:Sequential,NumOfFreqs,TFreq1,Tamp1,TFreq2, 
Tamp2,TFreq3,Tamp3,NumOfOnOffPairs,OnTime1,OffTime1, 
OnTime2,OffTime2,OnTime3,OffTime3,NumOfRepeats,TotalToneTime

where:

Sequential specifies whether multiple frequencies in a tone play simultaneously (100) or sequentially (101). Set to 100 for a tone with one frequency. If Sequential is 101, the number of frequencies (NumOfFreqs) has to be the same value as the number of on-off pairs in a cadence (NumOfOnOffPairs).

NumOfFreqs is the number of frequencies in the tone (1, 2, or 3). The frequencies can play simultaneously or sequentially, depending on the Sequential setting.

TFreq1, TFreq2, and TFreq3 are the transformed frequencies of the first, second, and third frequencies, respectively. Calculate each value with the following formula::

32767 * cos (2 * pi * F/8000)

where F is the desired frequency in Hz. Set this value to 0 if the frequency does not exist.

The range of each value is -32768 to 32767.

For negative values, use the 16-bit 2's complement value. For example, enter -1 as 65535 or as 0xffff.

Tamp1, Tamp2 and Tamp3 are the transformed amplitudes of the first, second and third frequencies, respectively. Their values are calculated with the following formula:

32767 * A * sin(2*pi*F/8000)

A (amplitude factor) = 0.5 * 10^((k+10-(n-1)*3)/20)

where F is the desired frequency in Hz, k is the desired volume in dBm, and n is the number of frequencies (If Sequential is set to 101, n is equal to 1). The ^ symbol means to the order of.

NumOfOnOffPairs is the number of on-off pairs in the cadences of the tone (0, 1, 2, or 3). For a steady tone, use 0.

If this value is 0, the OnTime1, OnTime2, OnTime 3, OffTime1, OffTime2, and OffTime3 values must also be 0.

OnTime1, OnTime2, and OnTime3 are the lengths of time that the first, second, and third on-off pairs of a cadence play a sound, respectively. (See Figure 5-2 for a graphical representation.)

Specify each value as a number of samples with the sampling rate of 8 kHz. The range of each value is 0 to 0xffff.

For example, for a length of 0.3 seconds, set a value to 2400.

OffTime1, OffTime2, and OffTime3 are the lengths of silence after the sound of the first, second, and third on-off pairs of a cadence, respectively.

Specify each value as a number of samples with the sampling rate of 8 kHz. The range of each value is 0 to 0xffff.

For example, for a length of 0.3 seconds, set a value to 2400. (See Figure 5-2 for a graphical representation.)

Figure 5-2 Cadence with Three On-Off Pairs

NumOfRepeats is the number of times that the first on-off pair of the cadence (specified by OnTime1, OffTime1) repeats before the second on-off pair (specified by OnTime2, OffTime2) plays.

For example, if NumOfRepeats is 2, the first on-off pair will play three times (it will play once and then repeat two times), then the second on-off pair will play.

TotalToneTime is the total length of time that the tone plays. If this value is 0, the tone will play until another call event stops the tone.

This value is in 10 ms units (100 ms = 1 second).

ReorderTone Parameter Example1

Assume that you want a reorder tone in which:

The frequencies 900 Hz, 1400 Hz, and 1800 Hz play sequentially.

Each frequency plays once for 0.33 seconds.

There is no silence after the first and the second frequencies.

There is 1 second of silence after the third frequency (before the first frequency starts again)

The volume of each frequency is -19 dBm.

The tone plays until another call event stops the tone.

For this reorder tone, make the following setting. See Table 5-5 for a detailed explanation.

Diagnostic Parameters

This section describes the following parameters that are used for diagnostic purposes:

NPrintf

TraceFlags

SyslogIP

SyslogCtrl

NPrintf

Description

Use this parameter to specify the IP address and port of a host to which all Cisco ATA debug messages are sent. The program prserv.exe, which comes bundled with the Cisco ATA software, is needed to capture the debug information.

Syntax

<HOST_IP>,<HOST_PORT>

Example

If the program prserv.exe is running on a host with IP address 192.168.2.170 and listening port 9001, set NPrintf to 192.168.2.170.9001. This causes the Cisco ATA to send all debug traces to that IP address.

Value Type
