In the sample application dial plan above, 9 represents the off-net access code for outside dialing. For domestic calls, you append the appropriate quantity of digits to the off-net access code to call either a local number or a national (long-distance) number. In each international dial rule, you replace the "+" with the off-net access code and the appropriate international dialing access code.

These application dial rules are configured in the sample dial plan above:

  • Any international number, the application dial rule removes "+" from the number, and prepends the off-net access code 9 and the international dialing access code 011 to the remaining digits.
  • Any local seven digit number, the application dial rule prepends the off-net access code 9.
  • Any local ten digit number that begins with 510, the application dial rule removes 510 from the number and prepends the off-net access code 9 to the remaining digits.
  • Any national ten digit number, the application dial rule prepends the digits 91.
  • Any national eleven digit number beginning with 1, the application dial rule prepends the off-net access code 9.

If the Number Begins With field is blank, you leave the number of initial digits open that you wish to apply to the dial rule. For example, the initial digits 1, 1408, or 1408526 will each match the dialed number 14085264000.

You must configure the application dial rule list in order of priority. Cisco Unified Communications Manager applies the first dial rule match that it finds for the dialed number in the dial rule list; it does not attempt to find the best match in the list. For example, if you configure the dial rule conditions listed below, on receipt of the dialed number 14085264000, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores dial rule 1, and applies dial rule 2 as it is the first match. Although dial rule 3 is the best match, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores any subsequent rules in the list after finding the first match.

  1. Begins with 9 and is 8 digits long, then do X.
  2. Begins with 1 and is 11 digits long, then do Y.
  3. Begins with 1408 and is 11 digits long, then do Z.

 

Note: You can also configure directory lookup rules on Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Directory lookup rules transform the number the user dials into a directory number. For further information, refer to the "Directory Lookup dial Rules Configuration" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.
