Adding Cisco VG200 Gateways and Ports

You can use BAT to add Cisco VG200 gateways and their ports to the Cisco CallManager database in batches, rather than add each gateway and ports individually.

To add Cisco VG200 gateways to Cisco CallManager, you must perform the following steps:

Create a VG200 Gateway Template to define common values for a set of gateways.

Create a comma separated value (CSV) file to define individual values for each gateway you want to add.

Insert gateways in the Cisco CallManager database (using BAT).

Creating a Cisco VG200 Gateway Template

The port template and comma separated values (CSV) file work together in bulk transactions. You can create a template that has the common settings for all the gateways to be added in that batch, such as the module in slot, type of endpoint identifier, and so on. BAT stores these templates, so they are reusable for other batches. You can configure a template with some attributes and use it for batches later.

The CSV file stores the details for each individual port, such as directory number, description of port, and partition. See Creating the CSV File for Adding VG200 Gateway, for more details about CSV files.

To create the Cisco VG200 template and then add endpoint identifiers, perform the following steps. If you have already created the template but did not add endpoint identifiers, skip to Updating the Endpoint Identifiers for Cisco VG200 Gateway.

Procedure


Step 1 Start BAT. (Refer to Starting BAT, page 1-7, for complete information about how to start BAT.)

Step 2 Click Configure > Template > VG200 Gateway.

The VG200 Gateway Template Configuration window displays.

Step 3 Enter values for the following fields:

VG200 Gateway Template Name—Type a name for this BAT template, up to 50 alphanumeric characters. This name identifies the unique Cisco VG200 gateway template used only in BAT; for example, BAT VG200.

Module in Slot 1—Select the type of module that is installed in slot 1: NM-1V or NM-2V.

Step 4 Click Insert.

The Status indicates the Insert completed, and a new field displays on the page.

In the VIC in SubUnit 0 field, select either FXS or FXO.

Step 5 Click Update.

Device Pool—The values that appear in this field were configured in Cisco CallManager Administration. Select the Device Pool to which this group of gateways/ports should belong.

A Device Pool defines sets of common characteristics for devices, such as region, date/time group, Cisco CallManager group, and calling search space for auto-registration.

Calling Search Space—This is an optional field. Select the calling search space to which this group of gateways/ports should belong.

A calling search space specifies the collection of Route Partitions searched to determine how a dialed number should be routed.

Location—This is an optional field. Select the Location to which this group of gateways/ports should belong.

A Location indicates the remote location accessed using restricted bandwidth connections.

Gateway Directory Number Template Name—This is an optional field when you are inserting FXO ports.

Port Information—FXS ports

Prefix DN—This is an optional field. Specifies the prefix digits that are appended to the digits received on incoming calls.

Num Digits—This field specifies the number of digits to collect, from 0 to 32. Significant digits are counted from the right (last digit) of the number called.

Expected Digits—This field specifies the number of digits expected on the inbound side of the trunk. Use the default value (zero) if you are unsure.

Port Information—FXO ports

Port Direction—This is an optional field. Specifies the direction of calls passing through this port.

Attendant DN—Type the directory number to which you want incoming calls routed; for example, zero for an attendant.

Step 8 Click Insert.

Step 9 In the column on the left, click on the next endpoint in the list. You can tell which endpoints have not been configured because a small question mark symbol displays next to the port icon. Repeat Steps 7 and 8 for any additional endpoint identifiers.

Step 6 Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until all endpoint identifiers attributes are configured.


Creating the CSV File for Adding VG200 Gateway

BAT includes a Microsoft Excel file (BAT.xlt) that provides data file templates with macros and error checking and exports the values into CSV files for Cisco VG200 gateway. Each record on the CSV file contains information about a Cisco VG200 gateway and its ports. You can open this file by double-clicking BAT.xlt on the Publisher database server in the C:\CiscoWebs\BAT\ExcelTemplate folder. When prompted, be sure to enable macros.

The following example format shows the required field length and string types followed by an example of a CSV file for a Cisco VG200 gateway.

Once you have created the Cisco VG200 gateway template in BAT and the CSV file as described in this section, you can insert the Cisco VG200 gateways into the Cisco CallManager database. See Adding Cisco VG200 Gateways to Cisco CallManager, for more information.

MGCP Domain Name (String[64] MANDATORY),Description (String[100] OPTIONAL),Port 1 Description (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 1 Directory Number (Integer[50] OPTIONAL),Port 1 Route Partition (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 2 Description (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 2 Directory Number (Integer[50] OPTIONAL),Port 2 Route Partition (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 3 Description (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 3 Directory Number (Integer[50] OPTIONAL),Port 3 Route Partition (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 4 Description (String[50] OPTIONAL),Port 4 Directory Number (Integer[50] OPTIONAL),Port 4 Route Partition (String[50] OPTIONAL)

Example

MGCPTest,Gateway,Port Desc1,9725557154,Partition1,Port Desc2,9725557155,Partition1,Port Desc3,9725557156,Partition2,Port Desc4,9725557158,Partition3

The actual file does not contain field names. You must include comma separators even if a field is blank. Specify the directory number and route partition only if the port type in the Cisco VG200 gateway template is POTS.

Refer to the following examples and sample CSV records when creating CSV files.

Examples

If the Description for a Cisco VG200 gateway is blank, a sample record can be

MGCPTest,,Port Desc1,9725557154,Partition1,Port Desc2,9725557155,Partition2,Port Desc3,9725557156,Partition3,Port Desc4,9725557158,Partition4

If the Cisco VG200 gateway template has only Port 1 and Port 2 as POTS type, sample record can be

MGCPTest,,Port Desc1,9725557154,Partition1,Port Desc2,9725557155,Partition2,Port Desc3,,,Port Desc4,,
