Gateway Template


You can use Cisco CallManager Bulk Administration (BAT) to configure some Cisco gateways and ports in the Cisco CallManager database in batches, rather than to add each gateway and port individually.

The following topics provide information and procedures for these tasks:

Adding Cisco Gateways

Finding a Gateway Template

Adding or Editing a Gateway Template

Gateway Configuration Settings

Port Configuration Settings

Deleting Cisco Gateways, page 45-1

Generating Reports for Cisco Gateways

Adding Cisco Gateways

You can use BAT to add the Cisco gateways to the Cisco CallManager database.

Before adding the VG200 gateways, you must first configure the gateway by using the Cisco IOS software command line interface (CLI). For gateway configuration procedures and commands, refer to the configuration documentation that is supplied with the gateway.

When using BAT to add the Cisco VG200 gateways to the Cisco CallManager database, you can configure the following types of trunks or ports:

Foreign Exchange Station (FXS) ports for analog devices

Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) for loopstart or groundstart trunks

T1 Primary Rate Interface (PRI) trunks for ISDN services in North America—Currently available only for Cisco VG200 gateways

E1 Primary Rate Interface (PRI) trunks for ISDN services in Europe—Currently available only for Cisco VG200 gateways.

Digital Access T1 protocol trunks

To add Cisco VG200 gateways to Cisco CallManager, perform the following tasks:

1. Create a Cisco VG200 gateway template to define common values for a set of gateways and ports. See the "Creating a Cisco VG200 Gateway Template" section.

2. Create a CSV data file to define individual values for each gateway and port that you want to add. See the "Creating CSV Data Files for Cisco VG200 Gateways" section.

3. Insert gateways and ports in the Cisco CallManager database. See the "Inserting Gateways to Cisco CallManager" section.

To insert Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) gateway and ports to Cisco CallManager, you must perform the following tasks:

1. Create a Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) gateway template. See the "Creating a Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) Gateway Template" section

2. To define common values for a set of FXS ports, create a Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) ports template. See the "Field descriptions for FXS/FXO Port Configuration" section.

3. To define individual values for the FXS ports that you want to add, create a CSV data file. See the Creating the CSV Data File for Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) Ports.

4. To insert the FXS ports in the Cisco CallManager database, see the "Inserting Gateways to Cisco CallManager" section.

Before using BAT to add the FXS ports for the analog interface modules, you must install the Cisco Catalyst 6000 gateway by performing these tasks:

1. Configure the gateway by using Cisco IOS software command line interface. See the documentation that was supplied with your gateway for configuration instructions.

2. Use Cisco CallManager Administration to add the Cisco Catalyst 6000 gateway in the Cisco CallManager database. In Cisco CallManager Administration, choose Device > Gateway and click Add New. Choose the Cisco Catalyst 6000 24 Port FXS Gateway and device protocol and then click Next. For more information, refer to the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide.

You can use BAT to add FXS ports on the Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) analog interface modules for analog devices. You must configure a Gateway Directory Number template to associate with these FXS ports and a Catalyst 6000 (FXS) ports template before adding these ports to the Cisco CallManager database.
