How to Install or Upgrade to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1

How to Complete Prerequisites for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1 Installation or Upgrade

Verify that your system meets the requirements listed in the Release Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1.

Complete the "Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1 Installation Worksheet" section on page A-1 and "Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1 Dial Plan Worksheet" section on page A-3.

These worksheets identify the required information that you need to install and configure Release 5.2.1 to work with VoIP devices.

By following the instructions in the "How to Configure Cisco Unified CallManager for Use With Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1" section, configure Cisco Unified CallManager for your network.

If a firewall separates the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system from the IP-gateway server, open port 5003.


Tip The Gateway SIM communicates with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system through port 5003. This port can be bidirectional or unidirectional and can be opened on either the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system or the IP-gateway server depending on your corporate security needs.


Stop all previously installed Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system services.

How to Configure Cisco Unified CallManager for Use With Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1

When a caller dials a number from an IP phone, the call is first directed to Cisco Unified CallManager; from there, Cisco Unified CallManager associates the dialed number with a route pattern that points to the appropriate IP-gateway server.


Note Traffic must be allowed to pass through ports 1024-65535 because the IP-gateway server uses these ports to send dynamic TCP and UDP traffic to Cisco Unified CallManager.


Before you can install and configure Release 5.2.1, you must configure Cisco Unified CallManager to point to your IP-gateway server. To configure Cisco Unified CallManager, you must first add a gateway; the, assign the gateway to a route pattern.

To configure Cisco Unified CallManager for use with Release 5.2.1, perform the following procedures in this order:

Adding the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1 Server to the Cisco Unified CallManager Configuration Database

Assigning a Cisco Unified CallManager Route Pattern to Point to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Release Release 5.2.1 Server

Adding the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1 Server to the Cisco Unified CallManager Configuration Database

To enable Cisco Unified CallManager to route calls to IP-gateway servers in your network, you must first add each IP-gateway server to the Cisco Unified CallManager configuration database.


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified CallManager server, choose Start > Programs > Cisco Unified CallManager > CallManager Administration.

Step 2 Enter the user name and password in the appropriate fields and click OK.

Step 3 In the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration page, choose System > CallManager.

Step 4 To display the Find/List Gateways window, choose Device > Gateway.

Step 5 Click the Add a New Gateway link.

The Add a New Gateway window appears.

Step 6 From the Gateway drop-down menu, choose H.323 Gateway.

In the Device Protocol drop-down menu, the H.225 device protocol appears.

Step 7 Click Next.

The Gateway Configuration window appears.

Step 8 Enter information in each field of the Gateway Configuration window, as shown in Table 2-1.


Note Maintain the default setting for all other parameters


.

Table 2-1 Fields in the Gateway Configuration Window 

Field
Description
Task

Device Name

Identifies the Cisco Unified CallManager device.

Enter the hostname or IP address of the IP-gateway server.

Device Pool

Specifies a collection of properties for this device including Cisco Unified CallManager Group, Date/Time Group, Region, and Calling Search Space for autoregistration of devices.

Choose Default.

Locations

Specifies the total bandwidth that is available for calls to and from this location. A location setting of None means that the locations feature does not keep track of the bandwidth that is consumed by this device.

If applicable, choose the location of the IP-gateway server on your network.

Calling Party Selection

Sends directory number information for an outbound call. Information in this field determines which directory number is sent. The following options specify which directory number is sent:

Originator—Sends the directory number of the calling device.

First Redirect Number—Sends the directory number of the redirecting device.

Last Redirect Number—Sends the directory number of the last device to redirect the call.

Choose Originator.

Presentation Bit

Determines whether the central office transmits or blocks caller ID.

Choose None.

Gatekeeper Registration

Provides address translation and controls access to the LAN for connections between H.323-compliant devices, such as terminals and gateways.

Choose None.

Media Termination Point (MTP) Required

Implements features that H.323 does not support (such as hold and transfer) via MTP. This check box is only for H.323 clients and H.323 devices that do not support the H.245 Empty Capabilities Set message.

Deselect this option.


Step 9 Click Insert.


Assigning a Cisco Unified CallManager Route Pattern to Point to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Release Release 5.2.1 Server

After adding the IP-gateway server to the Cisco Unified CallManager configuration database, you must assign a route pattern, which comprises a string of digits (an address) and a set of associated digit manipulations that can be assigned to the IP-gateway server. Route patterns work with route filters and route lists to direct calls to the IP-gateway server and to include, exclude, or modify specific digit patterns.


Tip Assigning 8XXX to a gateway routes all directory numbers 8000 to 8999 out the gateway. Similarly, 82XX routes directory numbers 8200 to 8299.



Step 1 If applicable, ensure that you have configured the following items in Cisco Unified CallManager:

Gateway

Route list

Partition

Route filter

Step 2 In the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration page, choose Route Plan > Route Pattern.

Step 3 Click Add a New Route Pattern.

Step 4 Enter the information in Table 2-2 into the corresponding fields in the Route Pattern Configuration window.

Table 2-2 Fields in the Route Pattern Configuration Window

Field
Description

Route Pattern

Enter the number for IP-gateway that you configured in "Adding the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway Software Release 5.2.1 Server to the Cisco Unified CallManager Configuration Database" section. This is the number that callers use to connect to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system.

Numbering Plan

If applicable, choose the appropriate numbering-plan option.

Gateway/Route List

Choose the host name or IP address of the IP-gateway server.

Route Option

Choose Route this pattern and deselect the Provide Outside Dial Tone box.


Step 5 To save your settings, click Insert.


Note Once 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 upon whether the Gateway/Route List field contains a gateway or a route list. You can see the route group that is included in that route list if the route group was specified. If the route group was not specified, you see devices.
