decoding the error message TEI_ASSIGNED

I support a remote center that has phone over a PRI line. At the moment, no calls can go in or out. When I look at the router, Cisco 2901, there are no recent errors on the line, but the output for the "show isdn status", this is the output:

 dsl 0, interface ISDN Switchtype = primary-ni
        L2 Protocol = Q.921 0x0000  L3 Protocol(s) = CCM MANAGER 0x0003
    Layer 1 Status:
        ACTIVE
    Layer 2 Status:
        TEI = 0, Ces = 1, SAPI = 0, State = TEI_ASSIGNED
    Layer 3 Status:
        0 Active Layer 3 Call(s)
    Active dsl 0 CCBs = 0
    The Free Channel Mask:  0x807FFFFF
    Number of L2 Discards = 0, L2 Session ID = 4
    Total Allocated ISDN CCBs = 0

what does "State = TEI_ASSIGNED" mean? How do I resolve this?

can you trace ISDN? TEI_ASSIGNED state means cannot connect other end

Gheist,

Just found out today that rebooting the router resolved the issue. I do not think this is the total resolve, but a cough drop for the real problem.  I think there is something more to this and this will happen again. Next time I will be better prepared with this bit of knowledge. Thanks for your response.

Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.
