I have a issue with my telephone system, I am unable to place or receive receive any call. I have forwarded the issue to my Telco and they just performed the loop test and confirm that it is working from there side. Can someone advise for a steps on the terminal to verify that the router is working perfectly and Telco has issue on there side. I have the following setup:

- PRI E1
- Cisco 2800 series

Voice-Gw#show controllers e1
E1 0/0/0 is up.
  Applique type is Channelized E1 - balanced
  No alarms detected.
  alarm-trigger is not set
  Version info Firmware: 20060711, FPGA: 13, spm_count = 0
  Framing is CRC4, Line Code is HDB3, Clock Source is Line.
  CRC Threshold is 320. Reported from firmware  is 320.

Voice-Gw#show isdn status
Global ISDN Switchtype = primary-net5
ISDN Serial0/0/0:15 interface
        dsl 0, interface ISDN Switchtype = primary-net5
    Layer 1 Status:
    Layer 2 Status:
        TEI = 0, Ces = 1, SAPI = 0, State = MULTIPLE_FRAME_ESTABLISHED
    Layer 3 Status:
        0 Active Layer 3 Call(s)
    Active dsl 0 CCBs = 0
    The Free Channel Mask:  0xFFFF7FFF

I am suspecting an issue with the PRI connection and I wanted to confirm and forward it to my Telco. Let me know if you need me to run any terminal commands. Thanks in advance.

You might want to look into these links. The call disconnect cause is where you need to start troubleshooting.

At least the calls look like they are coming in fine from the provider, seems to be a local issue. Most likely a DSP or codec issue.

Please provide us "sh inventory" output
