Configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager
This guide guides you through configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager with Flowroute. It assumes that you are already reasonably comfortable with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (previously named Cisco CallManager). It is not recommended to perform these changes on a production system without a backup. We strongly recommend that you make a backup and perform your testing on a development platform. CUCM configurations are network dependent so your environment may dictate substantially different configuration settings from those provided here.
That will, however, provide you a great place to start when configuring your Cisco Unified Communications Manager platform to work with our standards-compliant SIP trunking service. The following describes setting up a sample configuration.
|NOTE: This sample configuration requires modifications to function correctly, including the insertion of your Flowroute SIP credentials in the appropriate sections.|
- Have your Flowroute SIP Credentials, found on the Interconnection > Status & Setup page of Flowroute Manage.
This section will vary depending on your configuration. We suggest setting the variable
min-se,which controls session timeout, to 900seconds. voice rtp send-recv ! voice service voip allow-connections sip to sip sip min-se 900 registrar server !
Define which codecs to use with this connection. The preferred codecs for Flowroute is G.711 μ-law. Flowroute also supports G.729; simply replace
g711ulawwith g729r8. ! voice class codec 1 codec preference 1 g711ulaw !
Flowroute supports E.164 dialing format for all numbers. US and Canadian numbers must be dialed in full 11-digit format. This translation rule is a template you can use to convert your 7- or 10-digit dial strings to 11 digits. Replace
XXXwith your local area code to use 7-digit numbers. There are a few online tools to help generate and debug your translation rules. ! voice translation-rule 5 rule 1 /^9\(1[2-9]..[2-9]......\)$/ /\1/ rule 2 /^9\([2-9]......\)$/ /1XXX\1/ rule 5 /^\(.......\)$/ /1XXX\1/ !
Add a translation profile that can reference in Flowroute's dial-peers:
! voice translation-profile addlocal translate called 5 !
The following shows an example Outgoing Dial Peer. If you’re not familiar with dial peers we strongly recommend reviewing Cisco’s documentation.
! dial-peer voice 1 voip description *** Outgoing Flowroute *** translation-profile outgoing addlocal destination-pattern 1[2-9]..[2-9]......T session protocol sipv2 session target dns:sip.flowroute.com voice-class codec 1 dtmf-relay rtp-nte no vad !
The following example shows an outgoing dial peer for international calls. Adding the prefix
011can prevent placing accidental international calls. You would also want to add a rule to your translation profiles to strip the 011—for example, /^011/ /\T/ ! dial-peer voice 2 voip description *** Outgoing International *** destination-pattern 011T session protocol sipv2 session target dns:sip.flowroute.com voice-class codec 1 dtmf-relay rtp-nte no vad !
The following example shows an incoming dial-peer. This should be modified based on your site.
! dial-peer voice 2 voip description *** Incoming Flowroute *** destination-pattern 1[2-9]..[2-9]...... voice-class codec 1 session protocol sipv2 session target dns:sip.flowroute.com incoming called-number dtmf-relay rtp-nte no vad !
YOUR_USERNAMEand YOUR_PASSWORDwith your SIP Credentials from the Interconnection > Status & Setup page of Flowroute Manage. Keep the default retryvalues. These are the preferred time-outs and retry settings. You can safely remove the calling-infoline if you’ll be defining your Calling From DID elsewhere. ! sip-ua credentials username YOUR_USERNAME password YOUR_PASSWORD realm sip.flowroute.com authentication username YOUR_USERNAME password YOUR_PASSWORD realm sip.flowroute.com calling-info pstn-to-sip from number set YOUR_DID no remote-party-id retry invite 3 retry bye 3 retry cancel 3 retry register 3 registrar dns:sip.flowroute.com expires 600 sip-server dns:sip.flowroute.com !
Once you have your configuration set up, the following command can help you perform testing. Replace the number in this example with a known good DID (phone number). If it rings through, outbound calling is working.
