Call Block

Is there a way to block numbers in the Total Access 908?

Re: Call Block

Yes,

Here is an example:

voice grouped-trunk VOIP

trunk T01

accept $ cost 0

reject 12125551212

This trunk will accept all calls except 12125551212.

Re: Call Block

Is that for blocking outgoing calls or for blocking incoming calls?

Re: Call Block

That is to block calls going out that trunk.

If you want to block calls coming from this trunk you can block it on the destination trunk.

Here is an example of a system with a VoIP trunk and a PRI trunk:

voice grouped-trunk PRI

trunk T02

accept $ cost 0

reject 12125551212 <- Blocks calls from the VoIP to PRI

voice grouped-trunk VOIP

trunk T01

accept $ cost 0

reject 12125551212 <- Blocks calls from the PRI to VoIP

If you have more than two trunks you may want to use SABR https://supportforums.adtran.com/docs/DOC-1862

Re: Call Block

Kurttsc,

Thanks for posting!  The Total Access 900 series does not support blocking calls from a SIP trunk to an voice user (FXS port).  If the inbound call reaches the internal switchboard with destination that matches a voice user number, identity, or alias, the unit will ring the associated port.  However, you may be able to block this call in the network or on the customer PBX.

Thanks!

Re: Call Block

David,

   Would it be possible to use an HMR Ruleset that matches on the from header and then rewrites to the to header to an invalid number and set up the policy to run the rule on calls coming in on the sip trunk?  Just a thought.

Re: Call Block

John,

Yes, that could work.  However, I would typically recommend that this type of feature be handled on the SIP server, SBC, or customer PBX.  If we use HMR to essentially "break" the valid call, it could have unexpected consequences on the network side.  I would be concerned about call loops or failover initiation on the network side if we were to respond with something like a 404 Not Found to a valid call. 

Thanks!

Kurttsc,

Since this answer is from 2012, I wanted to double check whether this is still true today with current version of AOS on the Total Access 900.  Can you confirm? 

Thanks,

Adam

Re: Call Block

Still not easily doable.  Best to have the number blocked on the carrier.
