Scenario 38# Call Routing Issue – Intercept Pattern

Had a bizarre issue with one of the customer where they were trying to dial an internal extension and it was going to a mobile phone. There were no CFA/CFNA/CFB set on the extension itself but for some reason it was following this path. The Call manager version was 6.x. The call routing was designedContinue reading “Scenario 38# Call Routing Issue – Intercept Pattern”

Scenario#34 – Cannot make International Calls from US gateway

One of our customer has multiple sites across the globe including sites in UK and US. Their initial design was to send all UK calls from US over a SIP trunk to break out from a UK gateway for LCR (least cost routing).

Scenario#33 – Phones not registering CUCME

Interesting case today. I had a call from customer saying they had a power cut and when the power was restored all their phones went into ‘Registering’ status.

The whole issueContinue reading “Scenario#31 – Calls over ICT have delayed Voice”
