Hi All,

It is possible to create a dial pattern in CME to allow numbers within the same ddi range to differernt internal numer ranges?

 01234 1234..  to 3..
 01234 1234..  to 4..

Just matching the last 2 digits of the ddi to the last 2 unique digits of the intenal numers

 01234 123400 to 300
 01234 123411 to 411

Really urgent one if someone can help.

    hi there

    you can do a translation pattern

    e.g 01234 1234XXX to 3XXX   when user dials 12345787 it will convert it to 12343587

    Hi. Yes, you do need to use a translation pattern. First of all, here is the translation pattern you need:

    (config)#voice translation-rule 1
                 #rule 1 /^012341234/ /3/
    (This will match a string starting with 012341234, and change it 3XX)

    Now create a translation profile:
    (config)#voice translation-profile INCOMING
                 #translate called 1
    (This will apply the tanslation rule to the number which is being called, ie your internal number)

    Then apply the translation-profile to your incoming dial-peer:
    (config)#dial-peer voice 100 pots
    (config-dial-peer)#incoming called-number .
    (config-dial-peer)#translation-profile incoming INCOMING

    That should sort out your problems. There is also a nice command where you can test you translation-rules:
    # test voice translation-rule 1 01234123400
    Result will equal = 300!!

    oh Sorry,

    if you want to do the following:
    01234 123400 to 300
    01234 123411 to 411

    Then you will need to setup additonal rules. ie:
    (config)#voice translation-rule 1
                 #rule 1 /^01234123400/ /300/
                 #rule 2 /^01234123411/ /411/

    Hope that makes sense....
