Configuring Routing Table

These tasks configure Route Tables for routing calls that come in on a specific channel group.

 

Calls are routed based on the following:

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:

There are a couple ways to download a Route Table. Below are the two methods.

  1. A Route Table will not get sent to the IMG until you click the Save Route Table button shown below. Selecting the commit option does not download the table. After the Route Table has been modified, click Save Route Table button.

OR

  1. In ClientView if you are editing a route table both that object and the parent object will have a cached icon. You can continue to make changes to the table without downloading the table to the IMG. When done with all of the edits select an object outside of the parent object and the table will be downloaded.

  2. Right-click on Routing Tables and select New Route Table. The Route Table pane appears.

The router searches from top to bottom and uses the first criteria type for which it finds a match. Specify the criteria types in the sequence that is most appropriate for the call processing. For example, if the primary routing criteria is dialed number and the next criteria type based on importance is Channel Group, position Dialed Number in the first position and Channel Group in the second position. This helps to ensure proper processing and improves routing performance. The IMG ignores any criteria type that you do not define. See the Route Table pane reference for more details.

 

Adding an Entry to a Route Table

  1. Right-click on the Route Table name and select Add Route Element. The Route Element dialog box appears. See Route Element for details.
