Route Pattern Configuration


A route pattern comprises a string of digits (an address) and a set of associated digit manipulations that can be assigned to a route list or a gateway. Route patterns provide flexibility in network design. They work in conjunction with route filters and route lists to direct calls to specific devices and to include, exclude, or modify specific digit patterns.

Refer to "Understanding Route Plans" in Cisco CallManager System Guide for more detailed route pattern information.

Use the following topics to add, update, copy, or delete a route pattern:

This section describes how to add a route pattern.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the following items are configured in Cisco CallManager:

Gateway

Route list

Partition

Route filter


Timesaver Assigning 8XXX to a gateway routes all directory numbers 8000 to 8999 out the gateway. Similarly, 82XX routes directory numbers 8200 to 8299. See the "Special Characters and Settings" section on page 22-1 for more information about wildcards.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Route Plan > Route Pattern.

Step 2 Click Add a New Route Pattern.

Step 3 Enter the appropriate settings as described in Table 19-1.

Step 4 Click Insert.


Note After you click Insert and the window refreshes, an (Edit) link appears in the window next to the Gateway/Route List field. This link takes you to the Gateway Configuration or Route List Configuration window for reference, depending on whether the Gateway/Route List field contains a gateway or a route list, so you can see the route group(s) that are included in that route list, if route group(s) was specified. If not, you see devices.

Table 19-1 describes the available fields in the Route Pattern Configuration window.

Table 19-1 Route Pattern Configuration Settings 

Field
Description

Pattern Definition

Route Pattern

Enter the route pattern, including numbers and wildcards (do not use spaces); for example, 9.@ for typical local access, or 8XXX for a typical private network numbering plan.

Note Ensure the directory route pattern, using the chosen partition, route filter, and numbering plan combination, is unique. Check the route pattern, translation pattern, directory number, call park number, call pickup number, message waiting on/off, or Meet Me number if you receive an error indicating duplicate entries. You can also check the route plan report.

See the "Route Pattern Wildcards and Special Characters" section on page 22-1 for more information about wildcards.

Partition

If you want to use a partition to restrict access to the route pattern, choose the desired partition from the drop-down list box. If you do not want to restrict access to the route pattern, choose <None> for the partition. See the "Partition Configuration" section for more information on how to use partitions.

If more than 250 partitions exist, the ellipsis button (...) displays next to the drop-down list box. Click the ... button to display the Select Partition window. Enter a partial partition name in the List items where Name contains field. Click the desired partition name in the list of partitions that displays in the Select item to use box, and click OK.

Note Make sure that the combination of route pattern, route filter, and partition is unique within the Cisco CallManager cluster.

Description

Enter a description of the route pattern.

Numbering Plan

Choose a numbering plan.

Route Filter

If your route pattern includes the @ wildcard, you may choose a route filter. Choosing a route filter restricts certain number patterns and is optional.

Gateway/Route List

Choose the gateway or route list for which you are adding a route pattern.

Note If at least one port of the defined gateway that is included in a route group does not exist, or has an assigned DN, this drop-down list box does not include that gateway. When a gateway is chosen in the drop-down list box, Cisco CallManager uses all the ports in the gateway to route/block this route pattern. This action does not apply for MGCP gateways.

Route Option

The Route Option designation indicates whether you want this route pattern used for routing calls (such as 9.@ or 8[2-9]XX) or for blocking calls. Choose the Route this pattern or Block this pattern radio button.

Provide Outside Dial Tone

Check the check box if appropriate.

Urgent Priority

Check the check box if appropriate.

Calling Party Transformations

Use Calling Party's External Phone Number Mask

Check the check box if you want the full, external phone number used for CLID on outgoing calls. You may also configure an External Phone Number Mask on all phone devices.

Note The calling party transformation settings that are assigned to the route groups in a route list override any calling party transformation settings that are assigned to a route pattern that is associated with that route list.

Calling Party Transform Mask

Enter a transformation mask value. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9, the wildcard character X, the characters * and #, and blank. If this field is blank and the preceding field is not checked, no calling party transformation takes place. See the "Calling Party Transformations Settings" section on page 22-19 for more information.

Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls)

Enter prefix digits in the Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls) field. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9, #, *, and blank.

Note The appended prefix digit does not affect which directory numbers route to the assigned device.

Calling Party Presentation

Choose whether Cisco CallManager transmits or blocks caller ID.

Choose Allowed if you want to set the presentation field to allow the caller ID. Choose Restricted if you want to set the presentation field to restrict the caller ID. Choose Default if you do not want to change the presentation field from its previous setting.

For more information about this field, see Table 22-4 in the "Calling Party Transformations Settings" section on page 22-19.

Called Party Transformations

Discard Digits

From the Discard Digits drop-down list box, choose the discard digits instructions that you want associated with this route pattern. See the "Discard Digits Instructions" section on page 22-5 for more information.

Called Party Transform Mask

Enter a transformation mask value. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9, the wildcard character X, the characters * and #, and blank. If the field is blank, no transformation takes place. Cisco CallManager sends the dialed digits exactly as dialed.

Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls)

Enter prefix digits in the Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls) field. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9, #, *, and blank.

Note The appended prefix digit does not affect which directory numbers route to the assigned device.

ISDN Network-Specific Facilities Information Element

Carrier Identification Code

Enter the appropriate carrier identification code (0, 3, or 4 digits) in the Carrier Identification Code field. Carrier identification codes allow customers to reach the services of interexchange carriers.

The following list shows examples of commonly used carrier identification codes:

ATT—0288

Sprint—0333

WorldCom/MCI—0222

For a complete list of carrier identification codes, go to http://www.nanpa.com/.

Network Service Protocol

From the Network Service Protocol drop-down list box, choose the PRI protocol that matches the protocol of the terminating gateway.

Network Service

Choose the appropriate network service. The values vary depending on the network service protocol that you choose from the Network Service Protocol field.

Service Parameter Name

This field displays the service parameter name that is associated with the chosen network service. If no service parameter exists for the network service, the field displays <Not Exist>.

Service Parameter Value

Enter the appropriate service parameter value. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9. If a service parameter does not exist for the network service, Cisco CallManager Administration disables this field.
