This is the Hangup application, which simply hangs up the current channel unconditionally. Use this command to show which Zaptel modules are currently loaded:. In both cases, the calls will be connected on to the channel for the previously configured SIP phone. Prevents national calls from being missed because the dial plan is missing a variation of the phone number associated with this channel that includes one leading zero followed by the area code. In this case the command is:.

The latter is used mostly in North America. In the Netherlands, ISDN has always been more popular among businesses than consumers, even though a BRI line is still less than twice the monthly cost of a typical analog line.

The default, nationalis not. The original version of this file is interesting, but contains mostly comments, so rename it for now:.

In this case everything was detected correctly on the first attempt. First, it unloads all Zaptel modules and loads them again one by one. Among other things, this shows that the card is being run by vzaphfc ; one of a number of kernel modules that are shown to be loaded by the lsmod command:.

In both cases, the calls will be connected on to the channel for the previously configured SIP phone. The default is us.

Internal ISDN cards?

This was described in the previous article. This is necessary in many countries, including the Netherlands. The installation procedures below assume that an HFC-S PCI card has already been installed and that both the operating system and Asterisk are issdn and running.


This section is often preceded by a [trunkgroups] section that is not required here. This system has only one such card with a single port, so it is referred to as span 1. Allows multiple channels osdn be treated as one for outgoing calls, in which case the first available channel will always be used.

This is a script that is used to generate a new Zaptel configuration file. Spans are identified by incrementing numbers starting with 1. Sets the synchronization source for timing purposes. The value used here is arbitrary, but must be matched in the dial plan.

Integrated Services Digital Network. Otherwise, the name of this section is arbitrary. The options used here are:. The main selling points of ISDN BRI are its increased connection quality, faster dialing, its ability to connect up to seven devices and carry two calls simultaneously, including three-way conference calls.

This is also why it is necessary to specify a line coding scheme for the B-channels. Not that this support can be described as particularly reliable, but it can certainly be regarded as adequate for most personal needs.

Each channel definition inherits all of the options stated above it in the configuration file. It can also be used to combine two 64 kbps data connections to form a single kbps connection, but this has become less interesting since the advent of cheap, broadband Internet access.


At this point it is safe to run a script that will both re load the correct Zaptel modules for the HFC-S PCI card and create a hardware configuration file.

For T1 connections it is the OSI layer 2 frame type: In countries where the telco decided long ago to use some unusual version of this protocol, many popular telephony solutions various SIP adapters, Asterisk, etc. Without any comments, the contents of the file look like this:. Although it does not include an integrated NT1 as might be desired for use in North America, it is capable of operating in NT mode, which allows it to communicate directly with other ISDN user devices with a crossed cable.

Sets a dial plan parameter. Introduced inmany hfv-s are still marketing cards that are based on it today. It is possible to reload the Zap channel module on the fly, but that will not reconfigure all of the options. Retrieve some diagnotic information regarding the new card and its status.

It builds on a previous article, Asterisk:
