I have a client who has a Cisco 2921 Router running CCME and the simplest task would not work which is to call forward to a mobile phone.

When I say internal and external what I mean is the following two scenarios:


0207 888 8888 dials 0203 555 1007 this call forwards to 07540111222

We got this working by adding “calling-number local secondary” to the telephony-service.

But then internal call forwards would not work. Example:

Internal Extension 1010 dials 1007 this call forward to 07540111222 (we would just get a busy tone)

The problem was the SIP trunk provider was getting the SIP header information incorrect so I called Cisco TAC and this is the solution they came up with:

Create a new SIP Call Profile:

voice class sip-profiles 7
request INVITE sip-header Diversion copy “.*<sip:(.*)@.*” u01
request INVITE sip-header From copy “.*<sip:(.*)@.*” u02
request INVITE sip-header From modify “(.*)<sip:1…@(.*)” “1<sip:44203555u01@2”
request INVITE sip-header From modify “(.*)<sip:0.*@(.*)” “1<sip:u01@2”
request INVITE sip-header From modify “(.*)<sip:@(.*)” “1<sip:u02@2”

New voice translation rules and profiles created like below:

voice translation-rule 20
rule 1 /(^10..)/ /442035551/

voice translation-rule 3
rule 2 /^999$/ /999/
rule 5 /^9(.*)/ /1/

voice translation-profile SIPPrefix
translate calling 20
translate called 3

On the Dial-peer for outgoing calls reference this voice class:

dial-peer voice 3 voip
description **Outgoing Calls to Any Number **
translation-profile outgoing SIPPrefix
destination-pattern 9T
session protocol sipv2
session target sip-server
incoming called-number .
voice-class sip profiles 7
dtmf-relay rtp-nte
codec g711ulaw
no vad

I don’t yet fully understand the logic for the above as I have never written anything like this but as far as I can tell u01 and u02 are used for storing variables.

The logic behind this is the call-forwarding number has to start with 0 and can be any number of digits (look at the line below)
request INVITE sip-header From modify “(.*)<sip:0.*@(.*)” “1<sip:u01@2”

The last line is for normal outgoing calls to allow anything as normal.

Once I research into this some more ill write up a deeper explanation.
