Called/Calling Party Transformation Pattern Behavior on UCM 7.0

While calling out you cannot DM the calling party number using ‘Calling Party Transformation Pattern’, on the same while calling in you cannot DM the called party number using ‘Called Party Transformation Pattern’.

If you require to manipulate as mentioned you can do it either on the Gateway or Trunk for the ‘calling in’ cases (unfortunately you don’t have much choice for such route) and on the Translation Pattern, Route List, Route Pattern, Gateway and Trunk for ‘calling out’ cases (you have lots of choice here!).

Limitations of such ‘Calling/Called Party Transformation Pattern’ is resolved on UCM 8.0 and later versions so far I heard but didn’t tested it yet.

Can you change the CSS of a pattern? It’s simple by Translation Pattern

I won’t make this note longer by explaining it, a simple example will help enough to understand it!

Think for the example: you have a pattern 9.[2-9]XXXXXX which is configured on partition: PT-SA-User (part of CSS-SA-User), route list: RL-SA-SLRG. Now you want your SB users dial the same pattern but their CSS doesnt’ have sufficient permission to access the partition PT-SA-User. So what to do? Just assign the partition under their CSS right? I know it’s the simplest method but to learn to change the permission we shall do it with Translation Pattern (TP).

On the configuration page of translation-pattern you will see there is one ‘Partition’ field and another is ‘CSS’ field, so what’s the reason to give both partition and CSS on the same page? The reason and rule is simple. Think ‘From the parition xxx’ and ‘To the CSS yyy’, so any incoming call from the Partition  xxx will fall down to the CSS yyy. That’s simple, right? Now let’s finish the job!

Create one TP with Partition: PT-SB-User, CSS: CSS-SA-User, put the exact pattern you need to change partition  i.e. 9[2-9]XXXXXX. That’s done! Now though the SB user CSS doesn’t contain the partition PT-SA-User, but the SB phones still can dial through the pattern configured with PT-SA-User, because we changed the permission with Translation Pattern!

Happy Labbing! I’m really missing those days of labbing! 😦

A note of appreciations: thanks to everyone who were with me on the journey!

Of course this is not any technical post anymore! I want to remember my all friends and study mates who were with me on my CCIE journey. I’m really so grateful to all who helped me with discussions, strategies and advices.

I wish to give thanks to Allen, Monty, Ossamah, Eli and Nirvair (US); Salmaan (Singapore); John (UK); Chikkis, Vijay and Ranjan (India); Olivier (Belgium); Roger (Sweden); Shohag (Dhaka); Iwan (Netherlands); Ravindra (SriLanka)  and many others for all sort of helps and guidance through the lab!

I shall give special thanks to my study partners Allen, Monty, Salmaan and John, we all have our CCIE# now with us, we had very nice cooperation through the lab! We are the successful group ever I can bet! We really had true dedications, researching and quick issue solving capabilities, I can’t forget those days of studying! Hats of guys!!!

Now it’s the time to enjoy the number I know, but I really don’t know how to enjoy it! 🙂 Looking forward for some vacations and having some good time with parents and family, I really need a rest now. 🙂

I passed! CCIE#27424

I will share my experience and strategy later on, just a small update for now. I have passed the CCIE Voice lab, my CCIE # is 27424. 🙂
