Configuring Voice Ports

Configuring Voice Ports

This chapter describes how to configure voice ports for both the Cisco 3600 series (for Voice over IP) and for the Cisco MC3810 (for Voice over Frame Relay, Voice over ATM, and Voice over  HDLC). For a description of the voice port commands, refer to the "Voice Port Commands" chapter in the Voice, Video, and Home Applications Command Reference.

Voice Ports on the Cisco 3600 Series

The Cisco 3600 currently provides only analog voice ports for its implementation of Voice over IP. The type of signaling associated with these analog voice ports depend on the interface module installed into the device. The Cisco 3600 series router supports either a two-port or four-port voice network module (VNM); VNMs can hold either two or four voice interface cards (VICs).

Each VIC is specific to a particular signaling type; therefore, VICs determine the type of signaling for the voice ports on that particular VNM. This means that even though VNMs can hold multiple VICs, each VIC on a VNM must conform to the same signaling type. For more information about the physical characteristics of VNMs and VICs or how to install them, refer to the installation document, Voice Network Module and Voice Interface Card Configuration Note, that came with your VNM.

Voice ports on the Cisco 3600 series support three basic voice signaling types:

Configuring Voice Ports on the Cisco 3600 Series

In general, voice port commands define the characteristics associated with a particular voice port signaling type. Under most circumstances, the default voice port command values are adequate to configure FXO and FXS ports to transport voice data over your existing IP network. Because of the inherent complexities involved with PBX networks, E&M ports might need specific voice port values configured, depending on the specifications of the devices in your telephony network.

Voice Ports for the Cisco 3600 Series Configuration Task List

Perform the following tasks to configure the voice ports on the Cisco 3600 series:

Troubleshooting Tips

If you are having trouble connecting a call and you suspect the problem is associated with voice-port configuration, you can try to resolve the problem by performing the following tasks:

Fine-Tuning FXO and FXS Voice Ports

Depending on the specifics of your particular network, you may need to adjust voice parameters involving timing, input gain, and output attenuation for FXO or FXS voice ports. Collectively, these commands are referred to as voice-port tuning commands.

Voice Ports on the Cisco MC3810

The Cisco MC3810 hardware features two models, each providing different configuration options for voice ports:

The Cisco MC3810 voice ports provide support for three basic voice signaling formats:

In general, voice-port commands define the characteristics associated with a particular voice-port signaling type. Under most circumstances, the default voice-port command values are adequate to configure FXO and FXS ports to transport voice data using the Cisco MC3810. Because of the inherent complexities involved with PBX networks, E&M ports might need specific voice-port values configured, depending on the specifications of the devices in your telephony network.

12 . 

timing inter-digit milliseconds

If the voice-port dial type is DTMF, configure the DTMF inter-digit signal duration. The range of the DTMF inter-digit signal duration is from 50 to 500 milliseconds. The default is 100.

13 . 

timing pulse-digit milliseconds

If the voice-port dial type is pulse, configure the pulse digit signal duration. The range of the pulse digit signal duration is from10 to 20 milliseconds. The default is 20.

14 . 

timing pulse-inter-digit milliseconds

If the voice-port dial type is pulse, configure the pulse inter-digit signal duration. The range of the pulse inter-digit signal duration is from 100 to 1000 milliseconds. The default is 500.

15 . 

timing wink-duration milliseconds

Configure the timing wink-duration value. This value sets the wink signal duration for a wink-start signal. This value applies only if the signal command is set to "wink-start." The range is from 100 to 400 milliseconds and the default is 200.

16 . 

timing wink-wait milliseconds

Configure the timing wink-wait value. This value sets the wink wait duration for a wink-start signal. This value applies only if the signal command is set to "wink-start." The range is from 100 to 5000 milliseconds and the default is 200.

17 . 

timing clear-wait milliseconds

Configure the timing clear-wait value. This value sets the amount of time between the inactive seizure signal and the call being cleared. The range is from 100 to 2000 milliseconds and the default is 400.

18 . 

timing delay-duration milliseconds

Configure the timing delay-duration value. This value sets the delay signal duration for delay dial signaling. This value applies only if the signal command is set to "delay-dial." The range is from 100 to 5000 milliseonds and the default is 140.

19 . 

timing delay-start milliseconds

Configure the timing delay-start value. This value sets the delay interval between the generation of the delay-start signal from incoming detection seizure. This value applies only if the signal command is set to "delay-dial." The range is from 100 to 290 milliseconds and the default is 150.

20 . 

timing percentbreak percent

Configure the timing percent-break value. This value sets the percentage of the break period for a dialing pulse. The default is 50 percent.


Note After you change any voice-port command, it is a good idea to cycle the port by using the shutdown and no shutdown commands.

Activating the Voice Port

After you have configured the voice port, you need to activate the voice port to bring it online. In fact it is a good idea to cycle the port---meaning to shut the port down and then bring it online again.

To activate a voice port, use the following command in voice-port configuration mode:
Command Purpose

no shutdown

Activate the voice port.

To cycle a voice port, use the following commands in voice-port configuration mode:
Step Command Purpose

1 . 

shutdown

Deactivate the voice port.

2 . 

voice-port slot-number/subunit-number/port
or
voice-port slot/port

Identify the voice port you want to activate and enter the voice-port configuration mode.

3 . 

no shutdown

Activate the voice port.


Note If you are not going to use a voice port, shut it down.
