option 11c-digit manipulation?

option 11c-digit manipulation?

Hi all,

I'm working with a Meridian Option 11C, with 3 PRI cards.
We want to adapt our numbers (those we use in labo for tests) to those used on site.
So, in our labo, the call number 83 is associated with the route 0, 84 with route 1, and 85 with route 2.
On site, our customer uses 51.50.00, 51.50.10, 51.50.20.
We want to compose this last three numbers in our labo but our PABX must route this call to route 0 (ACOD 83), route 1 (ACOD 84), and route 3 (ACOD 85) like with 83,84,85.

How can I do that. I have to use digit manipulation?
But, the output of the PABX must be 51.50.00 (or 51.50.10, or 51.50.20)....

I hope that I am rather clear...

Any help would be appreciated.



RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

From what I am gathering, in the most basic terms you want to route 3 diffferent numbers out on 3 different routes.

Try the following,

Go into LD 86 and create 3 RLIs (Req: NEW Type: RLB).
At ENTR add the route number, you may want to leave enverything else at default while you are testing.

RLI 0 - Entr 0 = 0 (route 0)
RLI 1 - Entr 0 = 1 (route 1)
RLI 2 - Entr 0 = 3 (route 3)

Now go into LD 87 and create 3 Distant Steering Codes (DSC). (Req: New Type: CDP Code: DSC, don't remember prompts exactly).  Point te DSC out the respective RLI.

DSC 515000  FLEN 6 RLI - 0
DSC 515010  FLEN 6 RLI - 1
DSC 515020  FLEN 6 RLI - 2

Since we did not put any digit manipulation in the RLI, when the trunk in the route is seized all 6 digits will be outpulsed.  If you need to modify the digits, simply create a DMI in LD 86, specify whether you want to DEL delete digits or INST insert digits.  YOu then do a change to your RLI and reference the DMI you created.

RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

I'm finking that you maybe don't have a 6 number range ?  IF so you may need a DMI to insert the extra digits.


Number in PBX A - 5000
Number sent to Line from PBX A - 5000
DMI Inserts 51
Number sent to PBX B - 515000

The DMI should be created with DEL 0, INST 51 and leave everything else as default.  Once you have created the DMI assign it to the RDB against the DMI prompt.

DMI Creation is LD 86, NEW, DGT

OK, in your example:

DSC 515000  FLEN 6 RLI - 0
DSC 515010  FLEN 6 RLI - 1
DSC 515020  FLEN 6 RLI - 2

515000 is routed through route 0.
But does it always work for the number 83 which was routed through route 0 also?
In other terms, the numbers 83 and 515000 will be both routed through route 0?

If yes, it's OK for me...


RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

If both 83 and 515000 use a similar, or the same RLI, so long as no DMI is used they will be routed the same.  You will need to make a DSC for both of them though.

RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

From your original post you indicated that 83 was the ACOD.  IS it not really the ACOD?  Go to LD 20,
Do a DNB for 83 and see what it comes back with:

Type DNB
DN 83

Let us know if it says ACOD or DSC or whatever.  That will help with the solution. Basically, anything you want can be sent out any route you want with any digits you want.  Its just how the DMI's and RLI's are set up.

RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

Ok, With LD 20, I see :

DN 83

DN 84

DN 85

and also this DN:

DN 7

This is only a part of all DN printed with LD20/REQ PRT/TYPE DNB/CUST 0/DN <cr>.

But when I use LD 21/PRT/RDB to print all the routes, I see :


The same for route 2 (ACOD 84) and route 3 (ACOD 85).

RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

Okay, so now we know that 83, 84 & 85 are actual Trunk ACOD's.  So in response to your question:

"But does it always work for the number 83 which was routed through route 0 also?
In other terms, the numbers 83 and 515000 will be both routed through route 0?"

Creating the RLI's and the 51XXXXX steering codes will not impact your ability to dial the ACOD (83,84,85) in any way.

Are you dialing 83, then get a second dial tone, then dialing the 515000 number? Also, are the three routes going to the same or different PBX's?  If they are all going to the same PBX, why not have all the trunks in just one route?  

RE: option 11c-digit manipulation?

==>Rack5565 : I would like to thank you . I follow your message (12/03/2002) and it seems to work!
