These topics describe the items you must configure in Cisco CallManager so that Emergency Responder can work in your telephone network. These topics describe a sample Cisco CallManager setup—the names chosen (for example, partition and calling search space names) are not required.

Setting Up Phone Route Plans

Setting Up Emergency Responder to Handle Emergency Calls

Creating an Emergency Responder Cisco CallManager User

Understanding the Cisco CallManager Examples

These sections represent an example setup, with sample values included for reference only. Your particular configuration depends on the needs of your network and your naming strategy.

For these examples, you will be working with the following calling search spaces and partitions:

PhoneCSS—includes the Phones partition.

E911CSS—includes the E911 and Phones partitions.

The examples are based on a single Cisco CallManager cluster. If you have more than one cluster, you must repeat the configuration in each cluster, except for the emergency location identification number (ELIN) translation patterns. The ELIN translation patterns are only defined in the Cisco CallManager cluster to which the gateway will send incoming calls from the public safety answering point (PSAP).

Setting Up Phone Route Plans

Before configuring Emergency Responder, you must ensure that the phones that might be used to make emergency calls (typically all phones) are added and registered with Cisco CallManager. Refer to the documentation and online help included with Cisco CallManager if you need assistance completing this.

These sections provide an example setup for your network before adding Emergency Responder:

Configuring the Calling Search Space for the Gateways Used to Connect to the PSAP

Creating the Emergency Call Route Points

You must configure CTI route points in Cisco CallManager for:

The emergency call number for your locale, such as 911.

The number that your standby CER server should listen to, such as 912.

The number that incoming calls from the public safety answering point (PSAP) will use. Emergency Responder modifies these calls based on your ELIN configuration to route the call to the person who initiated the emergency call, if the PSAP gets disconnected and needs to call the calling party. See the "Setting Up the ELIN Numbers to Route Emergency Calls and Enable PSAP Callbacks" section for information about the rest of the ELIN configuration.

Before You Begin

This procedure assumes you are using 911 as the main emergency call number. If a different number is used in your locale, substitute it for "911," and make similar substitutions for other numbers based on "911," such as "912." For example, if the emergency call number in your locale is 112, use 112, and perhaps 113, 114.

When you install Emergency Responder, you are required to enter the emergency call number. In this procedure, configure the same number you specify during installation.

Use this procedure to create the route points described in Table 3-1.

Description

The emergency call number for the area. CER handles all calls to this number.

Route point for the CER standby server. If the primary server is unable to handle a call, the standby server receives the call through this route point.

The destination of all incoming calls from the PSAP. CER transforms these calls to calls to the emergency caller. Route pattern is prefix (913) plus 10 Xs. Number of Xs should be the same as the standard phone number used in your locale based on your numbering plan.

The number can only consist of numbers and Xs.

1 Configuring call-forwarding numbers for the standby server ensures that calls are either routed to the PSAP servicing the default ERL, or onsite security, if the standby server cannot handle the call. If you do not install a standby server, use these settings for the primary server.

2 Configuring call-forwarding numbers for the ELIN route point ensures that PSAP callbacks go to onsite security if CER cannot handle the call.


Procedure


Step 1 In Cisco CallManager, select Device > CTI Route Point.

The Find and List CTI Route Points page displays.

Step 2 Click Add a new CTI Route Point.

The CTI Route Point Configuration page displays.

Step 3 Fill in the CTI route point properties:

Installing Cisco Emergency Responder on a New System

Creating the Required CTI Ports

Emergency Responder uses CTI ports to call onsite alert (security) personnel when someone makes an emergency call. You should have enough CTI ports so that each person assigned to an ERL can receive a call. The number of ports you configure is the number of simultaneous calls Emergency Responder can make to these personnel. It does not relate to the number of emergency calls Emergency Responder can handle or forward to the PSAP—there is no configurable limitation to the number of simultaneous emergency calls that Emergency Responder can handle.

Before You Begin

Emergency Responder requires that the CTI port extension numbers be in succession, so you must find a block of unused extensions. For example, if you want to create four CTI ports starting at 3001, then 3001, 3002, 3003, and 3004 must all be available.

Procedure


Step 1 Select Device > Phone.

Cisco CallManager opens the Find and List Phones page.

Step 2 Click Add a New Phone.

Cisco CallManager opens the Add a New Phone page.

Step 3 Select CTI Port for Phone Type and click Next.

Cisco CallManager opens the Phone Configuration page.

Step 4 Configure the CTI Port, entering this information:

Device Name—Enter something meaningful to you, for example, CTI3001.

Device Pool—Select an appropriate device pool. This device pool must use the G.711 region.

Calling Search Space—Select PhoneCSS.

Step 5 Click Insert.

Cisco CallManager creates the CTI port and asks if you want to configure line 1. Click OK. Cisco CallManager opens the Directory Number Configuration page.

Step 6 Configure line 1 for the CTI port, entering this information:

Directory Number—Enter an unused extension number for the port, such as 3001. All subsequent numbers you configure for a given ERL must be consecutive from this number.

Partition—Select Phones.

Calling Search Space—Select PhoneCSS.

Step 7 Click Insert.

Cisco CallManager adds the line to the device. Repeat the procedure to create each CTI route point that you require.

Setting Up the ELIN Numbers to Route Emergency Calls and Enable PSAP Callbacks

Emergency calls are routed based on the calling party number, not the called party number. If an emergency call is disconnected for some reason (for example, the caller hangs up), the PSAP needs to be able to call back the emergency caller using the calling party number. The PSAP might also want to call back to obtain updated information after ending an emergency call normally.

Emergency Responder converts a caller's extension to an emergency location identification number (ELIN), and this number is used to route the call and to enable PSAP callbacks. Emergency Responder reuses the same set of numbers, and keeps track of the internal extension of the phone from which the call was made for up to three hours.

To set up the ELIN numbers, you must first obtain direct inward dial (DID) numbers from your service provider. Because you must pay for each number, you might want to limit the number of DIDs you obtain to two or three per ERL. The DIDs must be unique for each ERL.

Emergency Responder will reuse the ELIN numbers assigned to an ERL if necessary. For example, if you configure two numbers for an ERL, and three emergency calls are made within a three hour window, the first emergency caller's ELIN mapping is replaced by the third caller's extension. Thus, if the PSAP tries to call the first caller, the PSAP will reach the third caller. Keep this in mind as you determine the number of DIDs you will obtain for each ERL.

These topics describe how to set up the route patterns and translation patterns required to set up the ELIN numbers:

Creating the Route Patterns for ELINs

Creating the Translation Patterns for ELINs

See the "Creating ERLs" section for information on how to configure the ERLs with these numbers.

Creating the Route Patterns for ELINs

Emergency Responder uses route patterns to route emergency calls to the local public safety answering point (PSAP). In the route pattern, you are associating a pattern with a gateway that will connect to the PSAP. The gateway you choose depends on the emergency response location (ERL) to which you will assign the route pattern.

You must create one route pattern for every ELIN in your network. These are the direct inward dial (DID) numbers you obtain from your service provider for the purpose of allowing the PSAP to call into your network.

Before You Begin

Each ERL requires unique route patterns for the ELINs. Work with the ERL administrator to get an idea of how many route patterns are needed, and the locale of the ERLs so that you can select an appropriate gateway. The ERL administrator must enter the route patterns you create into the ERL definition. See the "Creating ERLs" section for information about ERLs.

Procedure


Step 1 Select Route Plan > Route Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Find and List Route Patterns page.

Step 2 Click Add a New Route Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Route Pattern Configuration page.

Step 3 Enter the information for the route pattern:

Route Pattern—A pattern that you can transform to the emergency call number, typically a number, a dot, and the emergency call number. For example, 10.911, 11.911, and so forth. The pattern can only contain numbers and dots.

Partition—Select E911.

Numbering Plan—Select the numbering plan for your area.

Gateway/Route List—Select the gateway to use for connecting to the local PSAP.

Route Option—Select Route this pattern.

Use Calling Party's External Phone Number Mask—Select this.

Calling Party Transform Mask—Enter the direct inward dial (DID) number you obtained to allow the PSAP in this locale to dial into your network. This is the ELIN number the ERL administrator enters for this route pattern when creating the ERL.

Discard Digits—Select PreDot if you use the suggested pattern, such as 10.911. If using a different technique, select the appropriate setting and enter a Called Party Transform Mask if necessary (to dial the emergency number).

Step 4 Click Insert.

Cisco CallManager saves the route pattern. To add additional route patterns, return to Step 2.


Tips

Consider developing a detailed naming strategy for the route patterns, because you might end up with a large number of them. For example, you could use a pattern such as xyzzaaab.911, where:

x is a CER cluster identifier.

y is a CER group identifier.

zz is the PSAP identifier.

aaa is the ERL identifier.

b is the ELIN identifier (within the ERL).

Creating the Translation Patterns for ELINs

Create translation patterns that cover the direct inward dial (DID) numbers you are using for ELIN numbers. The PSAP uses these ELINs to call into your network. Emergency Responder needs to intercept these calls so it can route the call to the correct emergency caller. The translation pattern is required so that the a number is prefixed to the ELIN so that it becomes the route point you configured for PSAP callbacks, as explained in the "Creating the Emergency Call Route Points" section.

Before You Begin

Ensure you have a list of all the DIDs you are using for ELINs.

Procedure


Step 1 Select Route Plan > Translation Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Find and List Translation Patterns page.

Step 2 Click Add a New Translation Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Translation Pattern Configuration page.

Step 3 Create the translation pattern:

Translation Pattern—The DID you are using as an ELIN. If you can, use X variables to create a pattern that covers more than one DID (for example, 5555551XXX). If you cannot create a pattern, define translation patterns for each DID separately.

Partition—Select E911.

Numbering Plan—Select the numbering plan for your area.

Calling Search Space—Select E911CSS.

Route Option—Select Route this pattern.

Called Party Transformations, Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls)—Enter the digits to prefix to the number. Enter the digits you used when creating the PSAP callback route point.

Step 4 Click Insert.

Cisco CallManager saves the translation pattern. To add additional translation patterns, return to Step 2.

Creating Alternate Emergency Call Numbers

If your users are used to dialing 9 (or another number) to get an outside line, they might try to dial the emergency number by first dialing the outside line access number. For example, if the emergency number is 911, they might try to dial 9911. If you want to accommodate these possibilities, configure translation patterns for the numbers you think are likely to be used. This procedure shows how to set up 9911 as an alternate emergency call number.

Procedure


Step 1 Select Route Plan > Translation Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Find and List Translation Patterns page.

Step 2 Click Add a New Translation Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Translation Pattern Configuration page.

How Emergency Responder Fits Into Your Network

Creating Route Patterns for Inter-CER-Group Communications

If you have more than one CER group in a CER cluster, you must configure route patterns to enable each CER group to route emergency calls to another CER group if a caller's phone homes to a Cisco CallManager cluster outside the current location of the phone. See the "Understanding CER Clusters and CER Groups" section for a detailed explanation of how CER groups communicate within a CER cluster.

This procedure explains how to create the route pattern for one CER group. You must create this pattern in the Cisco CallManager clusters that are not supported by the CER group. Consider the network setup in Figure 3-1. For inter-group communications to work:

You must define inter-cluster trunks in each Cisco CallManager cluster to enable communications between the Cisco CallManager clusters. See the Cisco CallManager documentation for information on creating these types of gateways.

You must define the route pattern 1000.911 in Cisco CallManager clusters CCM-C and CCM-D.

You must define the route pattern 2000.911 in Cisco CallManager clusters CCM-A and CCM-B.

In CER group 1, define 1000.911 as the Inter CER Group Route Pattern.

In CER group 2, define 2000.911 as the Inter CER Group Route Pattern.

These definitions allow a call in an ERL managed by CER group 2 to be routed to CER group 2 even though the phone homes to Cisco CallManager cluster CCM-B, which is serviced by CER group 1.

Figure 3-1 Understanding Inter CER Group Route Patterns

Before You Begin

The dial plans must be unique between all Cisco CallManager clusters supported by a CER cluster. For example, in the network shown in Figure 3-1, the extension 3003 can only be defined in Cisco CallManager cluster CCM-B.

Procedure


Step 1 Select Route Plan > Route Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Find and List Route Patterns page.

Step 2 Click Add a New Route Pattern.

Cisco CallManager opens the Route Pattern Configuration page.

Step 3 Enter the information for the route pattern:

Route Pattern—A pattern that you can transform to the emergency call number, typically a number, a dot, and the emergency call number. For example, 1000.911 or 2000.911. The pattern can only consist of numbers and dots.

Partition—Select E911.

Numbering Plan—Select the numbering plan for your area.

Gateway/Route List—Select the inter-cluster trunk gateway to use for connecting to the Cisco CallManager cluster supported by the CER group whose inter CER group route pattern you are defining.

Route Option—Select Route this pattern.

Called Party Transformations, Discard Digits—Select PreDot if you use the suggested pattern, such as 1000.911. If using a different technique, select the appropriate setting and enter a Called Party Transform Mask if necessary (to dial the emergency number).

Step 4 Click Insert.

Cisco CallManager saves the route pattern. To add additional route patterns, return to Step 2.

Step 5 Ensure you define the route pattern in all other Cisco CallManager clusters serviced by CER groups other than the CER group whose inter CER group route pattern you are defining.
