Can't Make outbound calls from a Cisco BE 4000 to Windstream PRI

Can't Make outbound calls from a Cisco BE 4000 to Windstream PRI

Hi Everyone,

We are putting in a Cisco BE 4000 and are having trouble making outbound calls. They fail immediately. We have it set as "primary-ni" in the switch type. We initially couldn't receive inbound calls, but Windstream changed something on their end and the inbound calls started to work. Regarding outbound calls Windstream said it is an issue with the Cisco device. Windstream tech told me we had to use the ISDN switch type that supports the NI-2 standard. Checking documentaton from Cisco indicates the the switch type primary-ni is that standard. Yesterday Windstream tech tells me I need to set the switchtype to DMS10. The Cisco Be 4000 doesn't have that option, only DMS100. This is going to replace an old Nortel BCM 450. The BCM is working fine.

Any ideas? Any questions I should ask Windstream? The configuration of the Line cards is pretty slim in the BE 4000

Cisco TAC did a debugging session and this is what they sent me:
