Cisco 1751 Voice-over-IP Quick Start Guide
The Cisco 1751 Voice over IP Quick Start Guide explains how to install WAN Interface Cards and Voice
Interface Cards, how to run configuration tools, and how to perform essential Voice-over-IP (VoIP)
configuration tasks.
This document contains the following sections:
This guide is intended primarily for users who configure and maintain routers, but are not necessarily
familiar with tasks, the relationship between tasks, or the commands necessary to perform particular
tasks to configure VoIP. We assume that you are familiar with Cisco IOS software, IP and telephony
networks, and PBX operation for E&M installations.

If you need to configure Voice-over-IP, use the Note Guide. Configuring Voice-over-IP Voice-over-IP (VoIP) enables a Cisco 1751 router to carry voice traffic (for example, telephone calls and faxes) over an IP network, simultaneously with data traffic.

    Configuring Voice-over-IP Information for International Users International users must set the values of certain voice-port commands, like cptone, that are specific to their country. Refer to the Cisco 1751 Router Software Configuration Guide for details. Entering Configuration Mode You can configure your router for VoIP by entering commands at the CLI. This method of entering commands is called configuration mode.

  • Page 13: Saving The Configuration

    For complete information about the global configuration commands and about configuring LAN and WAN interfaces on your router, refer to the Cisco IOS configuration guides and command references. The rest of this guide explains how to configure your router for VoIP traffic. Voice configuration uses a number of Cisco IOS commands.

    Configuring Voice-over-IP Dial Plan Use a dial plan to map the destination telephone numbers with the voice ports on the router. In North America, the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is used, which consists of an area code, an office code, and a station code.

You can use a period (.) as a wildcard character representing a single digit in a telephone number. You can use the show num-exp command to verify the number expansion information. East# show num-exp After you have configured dial peers and assigned destination patterns to them, you can use the show dialplan number command to see how a telephone number maps to a dial peer.

    Checking Dial Peer Configuration If you configured POTS dial peers on your router by following these examples, you can place calls between telephones connected to the same router. You can also use the show dial-peer voice command to verify that the data you configured is correct. If the voice port is offline, use the interface configuration no shutdown command to enable it.

However, to create a POTS dial peer for an FXO interface, the destination pattern refers to outgoing calls, and you can include wildcards in it because the PSTN performs the switching.

    Checking FXO Configuration If you configured your FXO interface according to this example, you can place outgoing calls over the PSTN. If you have trouble placing calls, use the show voice port command to make sure that the VIC is installed correctly.

    Configuring Voice-over-IP Both PBXs in this example use E&M interface Type 2, with four-wire operation and immediate-start signaling. The values for your configuration depend on your PBX and are available from your telecommunications department or the PBX manufacturer.

    For these commands to take effect, you have to cycle the port by using the shutdown and no shutdown Note commands. Configure the PBX to pass all dual-tone multifrequency (DTMF) signals to the router. Note Configure the East router similar to the West router. The East router connects to the PBX through an E&M VIC port 0/1.

    Configuring Frame Relay for VoIP Configuring VoIP on a Frame Relay link involves certain special considerations to ensure acceptable voice quality. For Frame Relay links with slow output rates (64 kbps or less) and with data and voice being transmitted over the same permanent virtual circuit (PVC), you should configure the following parameters: Lower maximum transmission unit (MTU) size—Voice packets are generally small.

    List of Terms List of Terms This section defines some of the VoIP terms and concepts used in this guide. BRI—Basic Rate Interface, an ISDN interface. CIR—Committed information rate. The average rate of information transfer a subscriber (for example, the network administrator) has stipulated for a Frame Relay PVC. Call leg—A segment of a call path, for instance, between a telephone and a router, a router and a network, a router and a PBX, or a router and the PSTN.
