I’ trying to integrate an Asterisk system to a Nortel 0x32 having Asterisk as gateway to the PSTN.
The schema I have is as follows:
Asterisk T1 #1 card -> Carrier
Asterisk T1 #2 card -> Nortel
I connected the T1 #1 to the Carrier, so all the calls generated from Asterisk extensions are progressing without any issue to the PSTN, according to my dial plan.
I have created a dial plan with a pattern that holds the Nortel extensions range, so I can make calls to Nortel extensions from the Asterisk extensions over the T1 #2.
By default Asterisk recognizes the digits coming from the T1 #2 and pass it to the right extension if exist, but if it doesn’t exist, Asterisk pass the call to an Any DID/Any CID I created pointing to one IVR. Meaning that I can also make extension calls from Nortel to Asterisk.
Here is the issue:
I’d like to make calls to the PSTN from Nortel extensions using the Asterisk box, so my numbers are a pattern of 10 digits and when I dial it from Nortel is redirected to the IVR. My question is: Can I create an incoming route for T1 #2 that specifies calls coming with a 10 digits pattern goes to the T1 #1 and then to the PSTN?
I’ve tried pointing the calls to a Ring Group, but Ring Groups only allows numbers such extensions or specific number, not patterns.
Let me know if you need some details i’m missing.
Your help is appreciated.
