Sonus Partial Import Work-Around

New to the Sonus SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 is the ability to perform a Partial Import of another gateway’s configuration. As it says on-screen “Existing Logical Interfaces, Ethernet Ports, VLANs, MST Instances, ACLs, Static Routes, ASM Networking, Link Monitor, NAT, IPsec Tunnels, Node-Level Settings and Certificate configurations won’t be modified.

Using Sonus SBC1k/2k AD Lookup to Block Outbound CallerID

The AD lookup feature in the Sonus SBC is an incredibly powerful and often under-utilised feature. I’ve written of it before, and my peer Luca Vitali has posted another example of its usefulness this week. That led to a Twitter conversation and what might yet turn into a bit of a competition to see who …

Set-UxFxsCountry.ps1

Here’s a script from the quick & dirty category. Worthy of publishing, but not something I’m going to get around to polishing up to be all-singing and all-dancing. “Set-UxFxsCountry.ps1” uses Vik Jaswal’s fantastic PowerShell module for the Sonus UX/SBC family of gateways to automate what I reckon has to be the most tedious task of …
