Configure Local Route Groups
The Local Route Group feature helps reduce the complexity and maintenance efforts of provisioning in a centralized Cisco Unified Communications Manager deployment that uses a large number of locations. The fundamental breakthrough in the Local Route Group feature comprises decoupling the location of a PSTN gateway from the route patterns that are used to access the gateway.
The Local Route Group feature provides the ability to reduce the number of route lists and route patterns that need to be provisioned for implementations of Cisco Unified Communications Manager where each of N sites needs to have access to the local gateways of the other N-1 remote sites. One such scenario occurs with Tail End Hop Off (TEHO).
Perform the following steps to configure the Local Route Group feature.
Review the interactions and restrictions for this feature.
If you have not already done so, activate the Cisco CallManager service in Cisco Unified Serviceability.
Use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure a local route list that contains the Standard Local Route Group as a member of the route list.menu option in
Use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure the Local Route Group setting for the device pools in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager implementation. For each device pool that you configure, specify a route group to use as local route group for that device pool. For each device pool, users may also configure the Called Party Transformation CSS for the devices in that device pool.menu option in
If the dial plan is not globalized and the Local Route Group needs to use transformation patterns for called party, use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure the gateways and trunks in each location.menu options in
For each device that you want to configure for the Local Route Group feature, configure the following fields:
Use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure the called party transformation pattern for the digits before a call is routed out through a gateway.menu item in
Use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure the route patterns to use route lists that are configured to use the Standard Local Route Group.menu item in
Use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to generate and view the route plan report for your implementation. Check the route plan report to verify that the provisioning that you performed is correct for your Local Route Group configuration.menu option in
