Cisco Call Manager Express 1+ Area Code dialing failing to local extensions

Posted on 2009-12-30
Last Modified: 2013-12-27
I have a CME system with extensions in the 100-200 range.  I would like to enable 1+(area code) dialing, but when I set the dial-peer for 1[2-9]......... it stops after 3 digits because of the local extensions.

For examplel if I want to dial 1-312-111-2222, it stops on 131

Any way around this?

    do you have this line or similar
    dial-peer voice 8 pots
     destination-pattern .T
     port 2/0

    This allows the router to match anything not covered by other dial-peers to go out of an fxo port.

    Dear chikagoh,

    Try adding T after 1[2-9].


    Hope this works.

    better way if you use dial peer for outside calls with 9.T or 0.T dial-peer, or finetuning interdigit timout with T302 timer!

    I will test these and get back.

    i will explain it to you:
    the ephone DNs has 100$ which is exact match to 100 but 1[2-9]...... is less than 100$ so if you want to use 1 it will not work try to use 9 or 0 instead or change the extensions that start with 1.

    voice translation-rule 1
     rule 1 /^9/ //
    voice translation-profile dialout
     translate called 1
    dial-peer voice 8 pots
     translation-profile outgoing dialout
     destination-pattern 9T
    port 2/0

    That sets up dialing 9 for an outside line.
