System Requirements

The Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch consists of the following equipment:

Call Agent/Feature Server (CA/FS)—Twoapplication servers, each with four CPUs.

Element Management System/bulk Data Management System (EMS/BDMS) server— Two administration processors, each with one CPU.

Two switch routers.

Power distribution unit (PDU) for DC systems.

DC-poweredsystems require two (redundant) feeds of 40A at-48VDC.AC-poweredsystems require two (redundant) circuits of 20A at 120 VAC.

Note DC systems require two redundant feeds. Cisco highly recommends uninteruptable power for both AC and DC.

The physical requirements for installation of the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch are documented in the

Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch Building Environment and Power Site Survey.

You can order the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch as software only, or as part of an entire Cisco Systems solution.

Software Only Purchase

When ordering the software-onlysolution, you will work with the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch product manager to determine the correct software load. The base software load includes licenses for 5,000 subscribers/DS0 licenses and 10 CPS.

If you need additional RTU and CPS, you’ll need to order multiple RTU (in increments of 1K subs) and CPS licenses as appropriate.

Note Cisco TAC does not support hardware when purchased directly from Sun or another vendor. Hardware support contracts should be purchased from Sun, or their Sun Value Added Reseller.

The Sun hardware listed in can be ordered directly from the vendor. TAC will only approve the following hardware configurations.

Ordering the Hardware and Software Solution from Cisco

Hardware available from Cisco for North American Customers is listed above as the CCPU configuration. Determine if you need AC or DC, and if you want the hardware in a cabinet or ready to mount in a customer rack. Work with a BTS 10200 product manager to determine the appropriate load for your customer. This base software includes 5000 subscriber/DS0 licenses and 10 CPS.

You’ll need to order RTU and CPS licenses as appropriate if additional subscribers are needed.

Limitations and Restrictions

With this release, you must have secured FTP capabilities.

Note The secure FTP requirement was first implemented in Release 3.3, and has been carried over to Release 3.5.

Deactivating SS7 Links

Prior to executing the platform stop all command, Cisco recommends that you deactivate any SS7 links that are homed off of the unit. For example, if platform stop all is to be issued on the secondary side, take down the links on the secondary side first. If you are unsure which links are homed on the primary side, and which are homed on the secondary side, contact Cisco TAC for assistance. Once the maintenance is complete, reactivate the links after the Call Agent and Feature Server applications are back in service.

Transaction Queue

Ensure that the scripts used in provisioning the CA and the EMS databases are separated into pure configuration scripts, and pure control/equip scripts. Otherwise, the databases may lose synchronization. If loss of synchronization occurs, the transaction-queuemay become stuck, and not clear out.

New and Changed Information

This section lists the new features and enhancements available in Release 3.5.

New Features in Release 3.5

The Cisco BTS 10200 BTS Softswitch has three new features in Release 3.5. They include:

Small platform feature

ISDN PRI Variant feature

CALEA feature

Auto Recovery of Hung CICs

New OAMP Features

Alarms

The following sections briefly describe these features, and how they enhance Release 3.5. For more detailed information on each of the features described here, including how to provision them, refer to the relevant Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch Feature Modules or manuals.

New and Changed Information

C I S CO CO N F I D E N T I A L

Small Platform Feature

The Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch small platform is a Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch that provides full functionality at a reduced cost, space, and call processing capacity. The benefit of the small platform is that its low cost and physically small hardware platform make it suitable for evaluations, trials, or small market deployments where initial entry costs are a factor.

Note Supporting third party hardware is NEBS Level 1 and Level 3 compliant.

The host computing system chosen as the initial target for this feature is the Sun Systems Sunfire V120 or a Netra T120, configured with 2 GB of memory for Element Management System (EMS) hosting, and 2 GB for Call Agent hosting. These memory sizes are the same as the current Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch medium platform, and require no change to any memory-relatedsizing parameters. The reduced form factor host also has only one CPU.

The small platform has two differing system capacities, namely cable market (using dynamic quality of service [DQoS]) and noncable market. The numbers of subscribers and ports supported are derived numbers based on usage averages and are not hard maximum limits to be enforced. Rather, they are minimum inferred limits based on usage assumptions. The enforced ceilings are exactly the same as for the medium platform in any given release.

ISDN PRI Variant

The ISDN PRI Variant feature enhances the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch ISDN PRI implementation by allowing interconnection to small, and medium, businesses using legacy PBX PRI interfaces. The new design provides for the transport of additional PRI Information Elements (IEs) and two new messages. The IEs include high layer compatibility (HLC), low layer compatibility (LLC), redirecting number (RGN), original called number (OCN), and Connected Number (CN). Message support is also provided for Notify and Facility messages, and new supplementary service support is provided for the Calling Name feature.

The Cisco BTS 10200 supports all standard NI2s. Additionally, interoperability has been enhanced to also support the following new PRI variants:

Nortel DMS-100

AT&T 4ESS

Lucent 5ESS

The PRI enhancements offered with this feature provide the following:

PRI variant support for basic call handling

Calling and Connected Name delivery

Calling Number Identification Service (CLIP/CLIR)

Redirecting Number support

Improved Maintenance Message support

CALEA Feature

The Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch provides support for Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) using two different architectures: PacketCable, and the Cisco Service Independent Intercept (SII). Release 3.5 adds support for Cisco SII. In order to support CALEA, a

New and Changed Information

C I S CO CO N F I D E N T I A L

service provider must configure their network consistent with either the PacketCable, or the Cisco SII, network architecture using compliant network elements. It is the responsibility of the service provider to ensure that their network is CALEA-compliant.

The Cisco SII architecture provides a common architectural solution for intercept of IP communications (voice and data). It uses SNMPv3 as the control protocol and places control of lawful intercept (LI) on a mediation device (third party product) instead of on call control equipment. It also provides a common interface for mediation devices and call control equipment. Depending on your network type, you can use either the Service Independent Interception Provisioning procedure, or the PacketCable Electronic Surveillance Provisioning procedure.

Release 3.5 also supports CALEA call content reporting. Both the call data and call content are supported for call types and scenarios for basic calls and feature calls such as call forwarding, call waiting, etc. Call content allows capturing voice in a replicated RTP stream sent to the LI server by using the control commands (COPS) to the Intercept Access Points.

The Cisco BTS 10200 Call Agent provides the full CALEA functionality, Packet Cable Electronic Surveillance Specification for both call identifying information and call content (voice conversation). There are two methods of call-contentused, based on the Network Architecture: Packet Cable Intercept and Service Independent Intercept.

Packet Cable Intercept

To enable the call content delivery in the network as a whole, the Edge/Aggregation Router/CMTS must support COPS, and the trunking gateway must be capable of supporting MGCP extensions for CALEA operation, especially the hairpin wiretap scenario. Additionally, SIP support at the Cisco BTS 10200 must be enhanced to support CALEA call content delivery. This is applicable for call redirection from the intercept subject that spans across multiple Call Agents.

Service Independent Intercept

To enable the call content delivery in the network as a whole, the Edge/Aggregation Router/CMTS and trunking gateway must be capable of supporting SNMP extensions for CALEA operation.

Auto Recovery of Hung CICs

Release 3.5 includes a new auditing enhancement feature—autorecovery of hung CICs. This tool audits unreachable endpoints caused from temporary network disconnectivity or congestion, and recovers the endpoints when they become reachable.

New OAMP Features

The Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch Release 3.5 includes many new OAMP features. These features include:

Ensuring that the collection mechanisms employed within the Cisco BTS 10200 guarantee no loss of data between collection intervals.

Support for disabling CLI and Corba provisioning during software upgrades.

The Cisco BTS 10200 ensuring that no calls are blocked or denied due to unavailability of billing management resources in either the call agent or EMS.

Provisioning the allowed and disallowed standard UNIX services on the EMS and Call Agents.

The Cisco BTS 10200 issuing applicable event reports from the Oracle DMBS engine.

Alarms

There is a new alarm to monitor disk partition usage, specified by the percentage of consumption. The cause of the alarm is that a process on the system is writing too much data to a partition; when the alarm is activated, the system operator should force a switchover, and clean up the disk partition.

Hardware Changes in Release 3.5

The reduced physical interface is new to Cisco BTS 10200 Release 3.5. It was introduced as part of the small platform, and adds support for a network configuration consisting of two Ethernet interfaces each on the Call Agent and EMS host machines.

Cisco BTS 10200 Release 3.5 supports the current 9/5 configuration and a new reduced 2/2 configuration. Previously, the Call Agent host machine required nine Ethernet interfaces and the EMS host machine required five Ethernet interfaces.

The reduced physical interface was introduced for the for small platform configurations only. The Cisco sold hardware configuration continues to use a standard interface.

Software Changes in Release 3.5

The software changes in Release 3.5 are explained in detail in the user documentation and these release notes.

Flash Archive and Disk Mirroring

Flash archive does not work well with Disk Suite mirroring; therefore, Cisco recommends that users create the archive without disk mirroring.

Target Market and opticall.cfg

In Release 3.x, when the Target market is china in opticall.cfg, putting NOA=UNKNOWN in the dial-plantable is mandatory.

Updated Disk Replacement Procedure

The Disk Replacement procedure in the Operations Manual was updated. Please ignore the outdated Disk Replacement procedure in Chapter 1 of the Release 3.5 Operations manual, and instead use the updated procedure.

The updated procedure is located at the Updated Disk Replacement hyperlink on the Operations Manual (Release 3.5) index.

Description

Workaround

Policy-prefixrouting is not working.Symptom: Using an 800 number carrier to route an operator call (00) does not work.

Workaround: Provision the 800 number carrier inpolicy-nxxtable along with the translated number.

ISDN not coming in service after oos/ins. Symptom: The Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch ISDN trunk group does not come in service all the time after the following commands are sent (the ISDN trunk group remains in the out of service state):

control trunk-grpid=129; mode=forced;target-state=oos;

control trunk-grpid=129; mode=forced;target-state=ins;

Workaround: To avoid this problem, do not execute these two commands in an immediate sequence:

control trunk-grptgn-id=129;mode=forced;target-state=oos;

control trunk-grptgn-id=129;mode=forced;target-state=ins;

Wait at least one second before issuing the second command.

Platform stays in INIT state when RDM Symptom: Platform stays in “INIT” state and never exited process is disabled in platform.cfg. when RDM and other processes are disabled in

platform.cfg file.

Workaround:Re-enablethe RDM process in platform.cfg and restart the platform.

Note Without the RDM process, no replication is possible. There is no reason to ever disable RDM in platform.cfg. RDM is an integral part of the platform software.

no service message is re-sent.

 

 

 

Workaround: CA needs to be switched over.

 

 

 

CSCdz74308

BTS10200 accepts invalid service

Symptom: We put an ISDN trunk circuit out of service via

a control command (CLI). The BTS 10200 sends a service

 

 

 

message indicating “out of service,” and we respond with a

 

 

 

service-ackmessage with an invalid status indication FF

 

 

 

hex. The problem is that the bts10200 does not re-transmit

 

 

 

the service message.

This happens only on the secondary Call Agent side.

Service messages are not re-transmitted.

Workaround: Disable service messages at the ISDNtrunk-grp(changeisdn-tg-profileid=isdn_profile1; isdn_service_unsupp=y).

Caution Use caution when using this workaround, as it affects many ISDN systems that rely on using service messages.

CSCdz81433

Termination table shows a status of OOS,

In Service.

Symptom: We execute the following command sequence:

control trunk-terminationtgn-id=129;mode=forced; cic=all;target-state=oos

show termination mgw-id=c2421.129;trunk-id=1

status trunk-terminationtgn-id=129;source=agent; cic=all;

audit termination

The problem is that the termination table shows a status of OOS, while the trunk-terminationstatus shows In Service. Doing an audit on the termination table will show that this table is corrupted after this sequence.

Workaround

BTS10200:For G.729 Codec SS7 to SIP

Symptom: Scenario 1: SS7 to SIP Call

Interworking fails

IN CRCX BTS sends in Local Connection Options

 

 

a:G.729, and not "G729", so we changed the codec string

 

in VISM to match that and make it choose G.729a (Payload

 

type 18) codec.

 

Scenario 2: SIP to SS7 Call

 

With the above config in CRCX BTS does not send

 

anything in a: of Local Connection parameters and instead

 

sends SDP with m=18 0 8 102, here 18 is defined as "G729"

 

not "G.729" in an RTPmap attribute(a=rtpmap:18

 

G729/8000). Now with this CRCX VISM fails to

 

understand "G729" as the codec string in VISM is "G.729".

 

Workaround: The workaround is to use PCMA or PCMA

 

as the codec used in the call.

 

 

IPCMessage pool fills up at 40cps with

180 second hold time.

 

Workaround: Run the call agent at lower level of traffic.

 

 

TWC with CA switchover receive busy.

Symptom: After CA switchover twice, one party of a TWC

 

goes on-hook.Then the party that originate the TWC gets

 

busy.

 

Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.

call that is no longer active. (Continuation billing records

 

are distinguished by the value of 1, 2, or 3 in the "Record

 

Type" field of the billing record.)

 

Workaround: Contact Cisco support to stop the

 

continuation billing records from being generated for the

 

non-activecall.

 

 

If RKS server becomes unreachable EMA

Symptom: Event Message (EM) billing is enabled, a single

doesn’t try to re-establisha connection.

Record Keeping Server (RKS) is equipped and in service,

 

but EMs do not get sent to the RKS.

 

Instead, they are always written to disk.

 

Workaround: Unequip the RKS by removing the

 

radius-profileinfo via "changecall-agent-profile".

 

Re-equipthe RKS by restoring theradius-profileinfo via

 

“change call-agent-profile.”Within a few minutes, normal

 

communication should resume. ("A few minutes" equals

 

the value of RETRY-PRI-RKS-TIMER(inca-configtable),

 

if defined. If not defined, it equals three minutes.)
