E1 R2 Signaling for the Cisco  3620 and 3640 Series Routers

The following sections are provided:

Feature Summary

R2 signaling is an international signaling standard that is common to channelized E1 networks, however, there is no single signaling standard for R2. The ITU-T Q.400-Q.490 recommendation defines R2, but a number of countries and geographic regions implement R2 in entirely different ways. Cisco Systems addresses this challenge by supporting many localized implementations of R2 signaling in its Cisco IOS software.

Cisco System's E1 R2 signaling default is ITU, which supports the following countries: Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia (ITU variant), Hong Kong (ITU variant), and South Africa (ITU variant). The expression "ITU variant" means there are multiple R2 signaling types in the specified country, but Cisco supports the ITU variant.

Cisco Systems also supports specific local variants of E1 R2 signaling in the following regions, countries, and corporations:


Note Only MICA digital modem modules support R2 functionality. No R2 support is provided for Microcom modems or non-modem applications.

Benefits

Customizing E1 characteristics for R2 has the following benefits:

Supported MIBs and RFCs

None.

Sample Network Topology

Figure 1 shows a sample network topology for using E1 R2 signaling with a Cisco  3600. Both controllers on the router are configured with R2 digital signaling. Additionally, localized R2 country settings are enabled on the router. For a sample configuration, see the "Configuration Example" section.


Figure 1: Service Provider using E1 R2 Signaling and a Cisco 3640


Configuring E1 R2 Signaling

R2 is a channelized E1 signaling used in Europe, Asia, and South America. It is equivalent to channelized T1 signaling in North America. There are two types of R2 signaling: line signaling and interregister signaling. R2 line signaling includes R2 digital, R2 analog, and R2 pulse. R2 interregister signaling includes R2 compelled, R2 non compelled, and R2 semi compelled. These signaling types are configured using the cas-group (controller e1) command.

Many countries and regions have their own E1 R2 variant specifications, which supplement the ITU-T Q.400-Q.490 recommendation for R2 signaling. Unique E1 R2 signaling parameters for specific countries and regions are set by entering the cas-custom channel command followed by the country name command.

Cisco's implementation of R2 signaling has DNIS support turned on by default. If you enable the ani option, the collection of DNIS information is still performed. Specifying the ani option does not disable DNIS collection. DNIS is the number being called. ANI is the caller's number. For example, if you are configuring router A to call router B, then the DNIS number is assigned to router B, and the ANI number is assigned to router A. ANI is similar to Caller ID.

Configure

Step Command Purpose

1 . 


Router(config)#  configure t

Enter global configuration to configure E1 R2 for your Cisco 3620 or 3640 router.

2 . 

Router(config-controller)#  controller e1 slot/port

Specify the E1 controller that you want to configure with R2 signaling.

3 . 


Router(config-controller)#  cas-group channel timeslots range type {r2-analog | r2-digital | r2-pulse} {r2-compelled [ani] | r2-non-compelled [ani] | r2-semi-compelled [ani]}

Configure R2 channel associated signaling on the E1 controller. For a complete description of the available R2 options, see the cas-group (controller e1).

4 . 


Router(config-controller)#  cas-custom channel

Enter cas-custom mode. In this mode, you can localize E1  R2 signaling parameters, such as specific R2 country settings for Hong Kong.

For the customization to take effect, the channel number used in the cas-custom command must match the channel number specified by the cas-group command.

5 . 


Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  country name use-defaults

Specifiy the local country, region, or corporation specification to use with R2 signaling. Replace the name variable with one of the supported country names.

Cisco strongly recommends that you include the use-defaults option, which engages the default settings for a specific country. The default setting for all countries is ITU.

See cas-custom for the list of supported countries, regions, and corporation specifications.

6 . 


Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  ani-digits
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  answer-signal
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  caller-digits
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  category
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  default
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  dnis-digits
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  invert-abcd
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  ka
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  kd
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  metering
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  nc-congestion
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  unused-abcd
Router(config-ctrl-cas)#  request-category

(Optional) Further customize the R2 signaling parameters. Some switch types require you to fine tune your R2 settings. Do not tamper with these commands unless you fully understand your switch's requirements.

For nearly all network scenarios, the country name use-defaults command fully configures your country's local settings. You should not need to perform Step 5.

See the cas-custom command reference page for more information about each signaling command.

For another E1 R2 configuration example, see "Configuration Example".

Configuration Example

The following example configures R2 signaling and customizes R2 parameters on controller E1 1/0 of a Cisco  3640. In most cases, the same R2 signaling type is configured on each E1 controller.

Step 1 Enter global configuration mode using the configure terminal command:

Step 2 Specify the E1 controller that you want to configure with R2 signaling using the controller e1 slot/port global configuration command. A controller informs the router how to distribute or provision individual timeslots for a connected channelized E1 line. You must configure one E1 controller for each E1 line.

Step 3 Configure channel associated signaling with the cas-group channel timeslots range type signal command. The signaling type forwarded by the connecting telco switch must match the signaling configured on the Cisco  3640. The Cisco IOS configuration options are r2-analog, r2-digital, or r2-pulse.

The following example specifies R2 ITU Q421 digital line signaling (r2-digital). This example also specifies R2 compelled register signaling and provisions the ANI ADDR option.

Step 4 Customize some of the E1 R2 signaling parameters with the cas-custom channel controller configuration command. This example specifies the default R2 settings for Argentina. See the cas-custom command reference page for a detailed description of these options.




Command Reference

This section documents new and modified commands. All other commands used with this feature are documented in the Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T command references.

cas-custom

To customize E1 R2 signaling parameters for a particular E1 channel group on a channelized E1 line, use the cas-custom controller configuration command. Use the no form of this command to disable the signaling customization.

cas-custom channel
no cas-custom channel

Syntax Description

channel

Specifies a single channel group number, which can be from 0 and 30. This channel group number must match the channel number specified in the cas-group command.

Default

No customized signaling parameters are set. If you do not specify a country name using the country name command, which is described in Table 1, ITU is the selected default signal.

Command Mode

Controller configuration

Usage Guidelines

This command first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1)T for the Cisco  3600 series routers.

The customization parameters set by the cas-custom channel command are applied to the same channel group number used in the cas-group channel timeslots range type signal command. These channel group numbers must match. Otherwise, the customized features specified by the cas-custom command will not be applied to the cas-group command's configuration. The signaling customization will not take effect. See Example 1.

However, you will not need to configure or set more than one channel group number per E1 line in most cases. Though rarely used, it is possible to split a single E1 (timeslots 1 to 31) into multiple groups (for example, 1 to 15 on group 1 and timeslots 17 to 31 in group 2).

Cisco strongly recommends that you use the use-defaults option when specifying a particular country type. See the country name command in Table 1. This additional keyword ensures that all the local country settings are correctly enabled. For example, enter the country greece use-defaults command. If the use-defaults option is not specified, generic ITU will be the default setting for all countries. See Example 2.

You can configure the system to deviate from a country's default settings as defined by Cisco. To do this, choose from the following list of commands described in Table 1: ani-digits min number max number, answer-signal {group-a | group-b} number, caller-digits number, category number, dnis-digits min number max number, invert-abcd, ka number, kd number, metering, nc-congestion, and unused-abcd value. To return a country back to its country-specific default settings, enter the country name use-defaults command. To return a country back to the ITU standard, enter the default country name use-defaults command. See Example 3 and Example 4.


Note Only integrated MICA digital modems support E1 R2 signaling on Cisco  3620 and 2640 series routers.

Table 1 shows a list of command options in cas-custom mode, which is used to customize R2 signaling settings. Some switches require you to fine tune your R2 settings. Do not tamper with these commands unless you understand exactly how your switch will be effected.


Table 1: Available Commands in Cas-Custom Mode
CAS Custom Command Purpose

ani-digits min number max number

Requested number of ANI digits for each call. All calls that do not match the minimum and maximum settings that you specify will be dropped. The minimum number of collected digits is set by min number. Replace the number variable with a value from 0 and 64. The maximum number of collected digits is set by max number. Replace the number variable with a value from 5 and 64. By default, ANI digits are not collected, which is the ITU standard.

answer-signal {group-a | group-b} number

Answer signal to be used. You can specify the group A signal or the group B signal. The signal number can be from 1  to  15. The default is group B is 6, which is the ITU default.

caller-digits number

Specifies the number of digits the router needs to collect before it requests ANI or CallerID information. The digits can be from 1 to 10. The default is 1, which is the ITU default.

category number

Specifies the category type of the incoming call, which is mapped to a group signal number. Signal numbers from 1 to 15 are available. The default is 1, which is the ITU default.

country name use-defaults

Specifies the local country, regional, and some corporation settings for R2 signaling. Replace the name variable with one of the following supported country names. Cisco strongly recommends that you include the use-defaults option, which enables the default settings for a specific country. The default country setting is ITU.

  • argentina use-defaults

  • australia use-defaults

  • bolivia use-defaults

  • brazil use-defaults

  • bulgaria use-defaults

  • china use-defaults

  • columbia use-defaults

  • costarica use-defaults

  • easteurope use-defaults---The easteurope option supports Croatia, Russia, and the Slovak Republic.

  • ecuador-itu use-defaults

  • ecuador-lme use-defaults

  • greece use-defaults

  • guatemala use-defaults

  • hongkong-china use-defaults--- The Hong Kong options uses the China variant.

  • indonesia use-defaults

  • israel use-defaults

  • itu---ITU is the signaling default. ITU provides support for the following list of countries: Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia (ITU variant), Hong Kong (ITU variant), and South Africa (ITU variant).

The expression "ITU variant" means that there are multiple R2 signaling types deployed in the specified country, but Cisco supports the ITU variant.

  • korea use-defaults

  • laos use-defaults

  • malaysia use-defaults

  • malta use-defaults

  • newzealand use-defaults

  • paraguay use-defaults

  • peru use-defaults

  • philippines use-defaults

  • saudiarabia use-defaults

  • singapore use-defaults

  • southafrica-panaftel use-defaults---The South Africa option uses the Panaftel variant.

  • telmex use-defaults

  • telnor use-defaults---The Telemex and Telnor corporations are supported for Mexico.

  • thailand use-defaults

  • uruguay use-defaults

  • venezuela use-defaults

  • vietnam use-defaults

default

Sets a command to its default setting.

debounce-time number

Validates ABCD bit changes. If ABCD bit value changes are shorter than debounce time (in milliseconds), then bit changes are invalid. The value entered here must equal the total for all timers. For example, to achieve a seizure-ack-time of 40, configure debounce-time to 20 and seizure-ack-time to 20.

dnis-digits min number max number

Requested number of DNIS digits for each call. All calls that do not match the minimum and maximum settings that you specify will be dropped. The minimum number of collected digits is set by min number. Replace the number variable with a value from 0 and 64. The maximum number of collected digits is set by max number. Replace the number variable with a value from 5 and 64. By default, DNIS digits are not collected, which is the ITU standard.

exit

Takes you out of cas-custom mode.

invert-abcd

Inverts the ABCD bits before tx and after rx. This feature is disabled by default, which is the ITU default.

ka number

Specifies the KA signal code. Replace the number variable with a value from 1 to 15. The default is 0, which is the ITU default.

kd number

Specifies the KD signal code. Replace the number variable with a value from 1 to 15. The default is 0, which is the ITU default.

metering

Allows the router to correctly handle a metering signal sent by the R2 network. Metering is turned off by default, which is the ITU default.

nc-congestion

Specifies the noncompelled congestion signal. This signal is sent to the central office when the router is congested and cannot accept the call. The default is B4, which is the ITU default.

no

Negates a command or sets its defaults.

release-guard-time number

The time difference in milliseconds between receiving the idle signal and transmitting the idle signal. The count begins once the router receives a clear forward(idle) signal. The release-guard-time command follows the disconnect request for successful calls only.

request-category

DNIS digits to be collected before requesting category. A category specifies different priority levels for different calls within R2, such as data calls verses voice calls. This infomation is primarily used for the switches that forward the calls to the NAS.

For example, India needs the category requested after the first DNIS digit.

seisure-ack-time number

The time difference between the seizure signal and the seizure acknowledgement signal. Used to specify how long the router must wait before transmitting a seizure acknowledgement signal after receiving the seizure signal. Specific to R2 signaling only.

unused-abcd value

Specifies unused ABCD bit values, which can have a 0 or 1 bit value. This feature is disabled by default, which is the ITU default.

Example 1

The following example displays the available signaling parameters after you enter cas-custom mode. Notice that the same channel group 1 is specified in the cas-group command and the cas-custom command.

Router(config-ctrl-cas)# country argentina use-defaults

Example 3

The following example customizes the signaling for channel group 1. The configuration collects 3 digits before it requests ANI information for analog calls received on a Cisco  3640 in Argentina.

Router(config-controller)# cas-custom 1
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# country argentina use-defaults
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# caller-digits 3
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# exit
Router(config-controller)# ^z
Router(config)# 

Example 4

Because cas-custom mode gives you the flexibility to customize R2 parameters, the margin for user error increases. Therefore, the Cisco IOS software enables you to return a country back to its default R2 settings using the use-defaults option. The following example begins by bringing up Argentina's default settings, changing a few customization parameters, and then returning the Argentina R2 setting back to its original state.

Router(config-ctrl-cas)# country argentina use-defaults
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# caller-digits 3
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# unused-abcd 1
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# metering
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# country argentina use-defaults

Related Command

cas-group (controller E1)

cas-group (controller e1)

To configure R2 signaling on an E1 controller, use the cas-group controller configuration command.

cas-group channel timeslots range type signal
no cas-group channel timeslots range type signal

Syntax Description

channel

Specifies a single channel group number. Replace the channel variable with a number from 0 and 30.

timeslots range

Specifies a timeslot range, which can be from 1 to 31. You can specify a timeslot range (for example, 1-31), individual timeslots separated by commas (for example 1, 3, 5), or a combination of the two (for example, 1-14, 15, 17-31). The 16th time slot is reserved for out-of-band signaling.

type signal

Specifies the type of channel-associated signaling. Configure the signal type that your central office uses. Replace the signal variable with one of the following signal types:

· r2-analog {r2-compelled [ani] | r2-non-compelled [ani] | r2-semi-compelled [ani]}

· r2-digital {r2-compelled [ani] | r2-non-compelled [ani] | r2-semi-compelled [ani]}

· r2-pulse {r2-compelled [ani] | r2-non-compelled [ani] | r2-semi-compelled [ani]}

The following descriptions are provided for the previous three R2 syntax bullets:

r2-analog---Specifies R2 ITU Q411 analog line signaling, which reflects the on/off switching of a tone in frequency-division multiplexing circuits (before TDM circuits were created). The tone is used for line signaling.

r2-digital---Specifies R2 ITU Q421 digital line signaling, which is the most common signaling configuration. The A and B bits are used for line signaling.

r2-pulse---Specifies R2 ITU supplement 7 pulse line signaling, which is a transmitted pulse that indicates a change in the line state.

r2-compelled [ani]---Specifies R2 compelled register signaling. You can also specify provisioning the ANI addr option.

r2-non-compelled [ani]---Specifies R2 noncompelled register signaling.

r2-semi-compelled [ani]---Specifies R2 semicompelled register signaling.

Default

No channel-associated signaling is configured on the controller. All R2 signaling types have DNIS turned on by default.

Command Mode

Controller configuration

Usage Guidelines

This command first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1)T for the Cisco  3600 Series.

Use this command to configure support for incoming and outgoing call signals (such as on-hook and off-hook) on each E1 controller.

If you specify the timeslot range 1-31, the system software automatically uses the 16th timeslot to transmit the channe-associated signaling.

The signaling you configure on the router must match the signaling used by the central office. For example, if the central office switch is forwarding R2 analog signaling to a Cisco 3640, the router's E1 controller must also be configured for R2 analog signaling (r2-analog).

All R2 signaling options have DNIS support turned on by default. If you enable the ani option, the collection of DNIS information is still performed. Specifying the ani option does not disable DNIS. DNIS is the number being called; ANI is the caller's number. For example, if you are configuring router A to call router B, then the DNIS number is router B, and the ANI number is router A. ANI is very similar to Caller ID.

To customize the R2 signaling parameters, refer to the cas-custom controller configuration command. When you enable the cas-group command, the cas-custom command is automatically set up to be polled for configuration information. However, unless you enable or turn on specific features with the cas-custom command, the cas-custom feature has an empty set of signaling parameters.


Note Only integrated MICA digital modems support E1 R2 signaling on Cisco series routers.

DNIS is automatically collected for R2 tone signaling. You do not need to specify the collection of DNIS information with the cas-group command.

Examples

In most cases, you will configure the same channel associated signaling on each E1 controller. The following examples configure signaling and customized parameters on controller E1 R2 using the cas-group and cas-custom controller configuration commands.

The actual channel-associated signaling is configured on the 16th timeslot, which is why this timeslot does not come up in the following output.

The following example shows all the supported E1 signaling types on a Cisco 3640.

Router(config-controller)# cas-group 1 timeslots 1-31 type ?
    r2-analog            R2 ITU Q411
  r2-digital           R2 ITU Q421
  r2-pulse             R2 ITU Supplement 7
Router(config-controller)# cas-group 1 timeslots 1-31 type r2-analog ?
    r2-compelled       R2 Compelled Register signaling
  r2-non-compelled   R2 Non Compelled Register signaling
  r2-semi-compelled  R2 Semi Compelled Register signaling
  <cr>

R2 signaling parameters can be customized with the cas-custom controller configuration command:

Router(config-controller)# cas-custom 1
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# ?
CAS custom commands:
  ani-digits          Expected number of ANI digits
  answer-signal       Answer signal to be used
  caller-digits       Digits to be collected before requesting CallerID
  category            Category signal
  country             Country Name
  debounce-time       Debounce Timer
  default             Set a command to its defaults
  dnis-digits         Expected number of DNIS digits
  exit                Exit from cas custom mode
  invert-abcd         invert the ABCD bits before tx and after rx
  ka                  KA Signal
  kd                  KD Signal
  metering            R2 network is sending metering signal
