Set Up Global Dial Plan Replication
This procedure describes how to set up Global Dial Plan Replication in the ILS network. See the Related Topics for more detailed information on how to perform some of the high-level steps in this procedure.
Before you begin
Global Dial Plan Replication runs on an ILS network. Follow the procedure to set up an ILS network in the "Intercluster Lookup Service" chapter before you configure Global Dial Plan Replication.
Enable ILS support for Global Dial Plan Replication in the local cluster:
(Optional) If you want to be able to dial directory URIs across clusters, set up URI dialing in the local cluster. For details, see the "URI dialing" chapter.
(Optional) If you want to set up alternate numbers that you can dial between clusters, set up alternate number replication by doing the following:
(Optional) If you want to set up a PSTN failover number for specific directory URIs or alternate numbers, assign an alternate number as the PSTN failover number for all the directory URIs and alternate numbers that are associated to a specific directory number.
(Optional) If you want to summarize your alternate numbers with a pattern, set up an advertised pattern, and assign a PSTN failover rule for the pattern.
In the Partitions for Learned Numbers and Patterns configuration window, assign route partitions to the alternate numbers and patterns that the local cluster learns through ILS.
Set up SIP route patterns to route calls to the remote clusters in your ILS network by doing the following:
If your network includes a Cisco Unified Border Element, do the following for the SIP profiles in your network:
Set an upper limit for the number of learned objects that ILS can write to the local database by setting a value for the ILS Max Number of Learned Objects service parameter. The default value is 100,000.
Repeat the previous steps for each cluster in your ILS network.
(Optional) If you want your ILS network to interoperate with a Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server or third-party call control system, import directory URI catalogs from a CSV file for the other system into any hub cluster in the ILS network.
