SIP Route Pattern Configuration


Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses SIP route patterns to route or block both internal and external calls.

The domain name or IP address provides the basis for routing. The administrator can add domains, IP addresses, and IP network (subnet) addresses and associate them to SIP trunks (only). This method allows requests that are destined for these domains to be routed through particular SIP trunk interfaces.


Note Because there are no default SIP route patterns in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the administrator must set them up.

Domain name examples: cisco.com, my-pc.cisco.com, *.com, rtp-ccm[1-5].cisco.com

Valid characters for domain names: [, -, ., 0-9, A-Z, a-z, *, and ].

IP address examples: 172.18.201.119 or 172.18.201.119/32 (explicit IP host address); 172.18.0.0/16 (IP subnet); 172.18.201.18.21 (IP subnet).

Valid characters for IP addresses: 0-9, ., and /


Finding a SIP Route Pattern

Because you can have several SIP route patterns in your network, Cisco Unified Communications Manager lets you locate specific SIP route patterns on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate SIP route patterns.


Note During your work in a browser session, the cookies on the client machine store your find/list search preference. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, or if you close the browser and then reopen a new browser window, the machine retains your Cisco Unified Communications Manager search preferences until you modify your search.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Call Routing > SIP Route Pattern.

The Find and List SIP Route Patterns window displays.

Step 2 To find all records in the database, ensure the dialog box is empty; go to Step 3.

To filter or search records:

From the first drop-down list box, select a search parameter.

From the second drop-down list box, select a search pattern.

Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.


Note To add additional search criteria, click the + button. When you add criteria, the system searches for a record that matches all criteria that you specify. To remove criteria, click the - button to remove the last added criteria or click the Clear Filter button to remove all added search criteria.


Step 3 Click Find.

All or matching records display. You can change the number of items that display on each page by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.


Note You can delete multiple records from the database by checking the check boxes next to the appropriate record and clicking Delete Selected. You can delete all configurable records for this selection by clicking Select All and then clicking Delete Selected.


Step 4 From the list of records that display, click the link for the record that you want to view.


Note To reverse the sort order, click the up or down arrow, if available, in the list header.


The window displays the item that you choose.

SIP Route Pattern Configuration Settings

Before you begin:

Ensure at least one SIP Profile and SIP Trunk are configured before you can configure a SIP route pattern

Table 42-1 describes the SIP route pattern configuration settings. For related procedures, see the "Related Topics" section.

Table 42-1 SIP Route Pattern Configuration Settings 

Field
Description

Pattern Definition

Pattern Usage

(Required) From the drop-down list, choose either Domain Routing or IP Address Routing.

Pattern

(Required) Enter the domain, sub-domain, IP address, or IP subnetwork address.

Note For the IP subnetwork address, in Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) notation, X.X.X.X/Y; where Y is the network prefix that denotes the number of bits in the address that will be the network address.

Description

For this optional entry, enter a description of the SIP Route Pattern.

Route Partition

If you want to use a partition to restrict access to the SIP route pattern, choose the desired partition from the drop-down list box. If you do not want to restrict access to the SIP route pattern, choose <None> for the partition. See the "Partition Configuration" section on page 45-1 for more information on how to use partitions.

You can configure the number of partitions that display in this drop-down list box by using the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter. If more than 250 partitions are specified by using the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter, the Find button displays next to the drop-down list box. Click the Find 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 To set the maximum list box items, choose System > Enterprise Parameters and choose CCMAdmin Parameters.

Note Make sure that the combination of SIP route pattern, route filter, and partition is unique within the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster.

 

SIP Trunk

(Required) Use the drop-down list to choose the SIP trunk to which the SIP route pattern should be associated.

Block Pattern

If you do not want this pattern to be used for routing calls, click the Block Pattern check box.

Calling Party Transformations

Use Calling Party's External Phone Mask

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

Calling Party Transformation Mask

Enter a transformation mask value. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9 and the wildcard characters X, asterisk (*), and octothorpe (#). If this field is blank and the preceding field is not checked, no calling party transformation takes place.
