This is the basic config for any ISR router 2800 / 3800 series with PRI connection to PSTN / PBX and H.323 protocol on IP side.


The example toplogy:

Tandberg VT - E1 PRI - PSTN - E1 PRI - ISR router - H.323 GK - Tandberg VT


1. First we need to register GW and the video endpoint to the GK. The most simple setup will be if we register endpoing with full E164 number and GW with the tech prefix, chousen in a way it will allow dialing to PSTN without any number transformation. Assume PSTN will requre 00 for international call, in this case we can use the following config on GK:

! gatekeeper

zone local video-98
no use-proxy video-98 default inbound-to terminal
no use-proxy video-98 default outbound-from terminal
no shutdown


There is no need to configure zone prefixes as GW will register with the tech prefix. And VT will register with the full E164 number, so GK will always be able to resolve the them to IP. For VT we need to allow direct calls to / from H.323 GW, so we disabling proxy requirement.

The matching GW config will be:

! interface FastEthernet0/0

ip address

h323-gateway voip interface

h323-gateway voip id video-98 ipaddr 1719
h323-gateway voip h323-id ios-91-to-98
h323-gateway voip tech-prefix 00
h323-gateway voip bind srcaddr

! gateway !

Next we can proceed with the H.320 video GW configuration.

1. Specify the card type you will have:

card type e1 1 1

2. As video calls are actually the DATA calls by the nature of video content, we need to ensure the clocking is configured corectcly:

network-clock-participate slot 1 network-clock-participate wic 1 ! Choose the one which required by your hardware setup. ! network-clock-select 1 E1 1/0

3. You will need to specify the ISDN switch type before you can proceed with PRI group config on the controller:

isdn switch-type primary-net5

4. The controller config is the same as for any PRI connection:

controller E1 1/0

pri-group timeslots 1-31
description >>>>> Test of NEW BT PRI ports - out 338898 *** <<<<<


5. Now we need to configure D-channel to accept / send Data calls:

! interface Serial1/0:15

description >>>>> Test of NEW BT PRI ports - out 338898 *** <<<<<
no ip address
encapsulation hdlc
isdn switch-type primary-net5
isdn map address .* plan unknown type unknown
isdn negotiate-bchan resend-setup
isdn bchan-number-order ascending 
isdn sending-complete
isdn integrate calltype all
no cdp enable


6. Now we can proceed with the preparation for the dial-peer config, first let define the codecs we will use on IP side. Please keep in mind that GW will actually do the filtering of the codes it will announce to the endpoints on both sides.

! voice class codec 1000

codec preference 1 g711ulaw
codec preference 2 g711alaw
codec preference 3 g728
codec preference 4 g722-64
codec preference 5 g722-56
codec preference 6 g722-48
video codec h261
video codec h263
video codec h263+
video codec h264


7. This part is required to accept the incoming video calls, we need to have to provide the secondary numbers to the calling party, so they can call us on that numbers to add more bandwidth to the video call, that numbers will be sent out during ISO 13871 bonding stage.

! voice class called number pool 3151

index 1 315140 - 315149

8. Now we need to apply that pool to the voice port to activate it:

! voice-port 1/0:15

voice-class called-number-pool 3151


9. Now we are ready to proceed with the dial-peer configuration we need 4 of them, two incoming and two outgoing. It is possible to use one POTS dial-peer as incoming and outgoing at the same time, but we will provide config for two of them for the sake of clarity:

! dial-peer voice 99 pots

description default incoming video dial-peer
information-type video
incoming called-number 313300
bandwidth maximum 384


! dial-peer voice 9001 pots

description default outgoing video dial-peer
destination-pattern 00
information-type video
bandwidth maximum 384
port 1/0:15
forward-digits all


10. here is the example of the VOIP dial-peer, now we configured it as both - incoming and outgoing:

! dial-peer voice 770 voip

description default incoming/outgoing voip dial-peer for all calls from GK w

destination-pattern 701...

voice-class codec 1000
session target ras
incoming called-number 00.
dtmf-relay h245-alphanumeric


Related show Commands

This section provides information you can use to confirm your configuration is working properly.

Certain show commands are supported by the Output Interpreter Tool (registered customers only), which allows you to view an analysis of show command output.

show network-clocks show isdn status show dial-peer voice summary show voice call status show voice dsp

There also some useful commands to add and they can be used on All routers in production as well:

service nagle service tcp-keepalives-in service tcp-keepalives-out service timestamps debug datetime msec service timestamps log datetime msec

! logging message-counter syslog logging queue-limit 100000 logging buffered 5000000 logging rate-limit 10000 no logging console

And some very useful aliases :)

! alias exec c conf t alias exec r sh run alias exec i sh ip ro alias exec ib sh ip int brie alias exec gs show run | s gatekeeper alias exec ge sho gatekeeper end alias exec sg sho gatekeeper alias exec rs sh run | s alias exec ri sh run | i alias exec rb sh run | b alias exec dp sh run | be dial-p !

Enjoy :)
