    4. The confirmation page displays the PSTN numbers that have been added to the location.Confirmation of added PSTN numbers

  4. Perform the following steps for each Location to create a Route List, assign it to an appropriate Route Group, and select which numbers will be assigned to DI.

    1. Navigate to Calling > Route Lists and choose one from the list to view its properties.

    2. Select a Route Group from the Routing Choice menu.

    As part of Dedicated Instance service activation, SIP Trunks to Dedicated Instance and the Route Groups are created in Control Hub (the name starts with “WxC-DI”).
  5. Configure Dial Plans in Webex Calling with patterns pointing to Dedicated Instance and associate it with a Route Group.

  6. Configure Dedicated Instance:

    • Configure the PSTN DIDs and assign them to phones, users, hunt pilot, etc.

    • Configure dial plan on Dedicated Instance to route PSTN calls to Webex Calling, using the Route Group, Route List, and SIP trunks configured during Dedicated Instance service activation.

  7. To enable international calling, select the relevant location in the Control Hub > Calling page. Navigate to the Advanced > Outgoing and Incoming Permissions > Outgoing Calls > International section and select Allow from the drop-down menu.

Troubleshooting:

  • The Calling Number in the SIP INVITE from DI must match the E164 number configured in the Webex calling route list for the call to succeed.

  • Review the Audio specifications for Webex Calling documentation for supported/preferred audio codec by Webex Calling. This must be considered for the design of Dedicated Instance for CCPP calls.
