Find Call Route For A Given Number on an Avaya Definity

It is common to setup a phone switch with multiple T1s, each purposed with a special use. An example of such a configuration might be to have one used for local calls, and one for long-distance calls. To test the route that the call will make through the switch, you can run a couple commands and get a great deal of information.

For our example, lets try to find the path for 1-408-555-4262

list ars route-chosen 14085554262

The resulting output would be:

Location: 1 Partitioned Group Number: 1
Dialed Total Route Call Node
String Min Max Pattern Type Number Location
14 11 11 3 fnpa all

The above report tells us that this call falls within the “Route Pattern 3”. Next we want to look at what Route Pattern 3 defines.

Pattern Number: 3 Pattern Name: Toll
SCCAN? n Secure SIP? n

3: y y y y y n n rest none
4: y y y y y n n rest none
5: y y y y y n n rest none
6: y y y y y n n rest none

We now know that this is classified as a Toll call, and falls with in FRL 5. A user calling this number would need to have a station with access to at least FRL 5, and it would be classified as a Toll call. The call will first try to use Trunk Group 1, and then try Trunk Group 2.
