Revised: March 24, 2011, OL-12606-21
This document describes the network features and subscriber features supported by the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch. It explains the behavior of each feature from the end-user perspective, and the effect of provisionable options on feature behavior. This document is designed for engineers, technicians, and system administrators who install, configure, and operate the BTS 10200.
Some features involve the use of other network elements (NEs) deployed in the service provider network, for example, gateways, media servers, announcement servers, eMTAs, and SIP phones. See the
Component Interoperability section of the
Release Notes for a complete list of the specific peripheral platforms, functions, and software loads that have been used in system testing for interoperability with the BTS 10200 Release 5.0 software. Earlier or later releases of platform software might be interoperable and it might be possible to use other functions on these platforms. The list in the
Release Notes certifies only that the required interoperation of these platforms, the functions listed, and the protocols listed have been successfully tested with the BTS 10200.
