Make Outbound Calls through a Designated GSM Trunk

Many carriers have call plans that let you make free or low-cost calls between other numbers through the same carrier network. This topic describes how to make outbound calls through designated GSM trunks to save call charges.

Scenario

The instructions provided in this topic are based on the following scenario:

Outbound Number Format Trunk Carrier
Number with prefix 92 GSM trunk 1 Carrier A
Number with prefix 10 GSM trunk 2 Carrier B

Procedure

Step1. Create an outbound route on Yeastar PBX system

On Yeastar PBX system, create an outbound route to allow PBX users to call through Yeastar TG400 gateway.

  1. Log in to PBX web portal, go to Call Control > Outbound Route, click Add.
  2. Configure the following settings for the outbound route and leave other settings as default.
    • Name: Enter a name to help you identify it.
    • Dial Pattern: Set the dial patterns according to your needs. In this example, set Pattern to X., which means that users can dial any number without limitation.

    • Trunk: Select the SIP peer trunk that is connected to the Yeastar TG400 gateway. In this example, select the trunk TG400.

    • Extension/Extension Group: Select the extensions that are allowed to make calls through this outbound route. In this example, select all the extensions.

  3. Click Save and Apply.

Step2. Create two 'IP to Mobile' routes on Yeastar TG400 gateway

On Yeastar TG400 gateway, create an 'IP to Mobile' route for carrier A, and create another one for carrier B. These two routes will match the dialed numbers from PBX, and send numbers out through designated GSM trunks.

  1. Log in to gateway web interface, go to Gateway > Route Settings > IP to Mobile, click Add IP to Mobile Route.
  2. In the pop-up window, configure the route, then click Save and Apply Changes.

    The following table shows the required configurations for carrier A and carrier B.

    Setting Description For Carrier A For Carrier B
    Simple Mode To keep simple mode with basic settings or to expand more settings. No No
    Route Name Enter a name to help you identify it. To-CarrierA To-CarrierB
    Call Source Select the SIP trunk that is connected to Yeastar PBX system. SPS – P560 SPS – P560
    DID Number Enter the pattern or number to match dialed numbers from Yeastar PBX system.
    Note: If you want to match any incoming calls, you need to set DID Number to .(dot), or outbound calls would fail.
    Enter 92. to allow the numbers with prefix 92. Enter 10. to allow the numbers with prefix 10.
    Call Destination Select the GSM trunk that will be used to call out. Mobile – Trunk1 Mobile – Trunk2
