Significance of $ in dial-peer destination pattern

Posted: October 25, 2006 by cciestudy in Gateways

$ means “end of digits” and is used for a more specific match. If you have two dial-peers with the same pattern and one with $ and the other without $, then call routing logic will always match the one with $, because that is more specific. Even if you give a lower preference to the dial-peer with $, still it will be matched because by default the dial-plan hunting algorithm is more specific match first and then preference.

dial-peer voice 10 pots

destination-pattern 1000

port 1/0/0

dial-peer voice 11 pots

destination-pattern 1000$

port 1/0/0

preference 5

In this case, always dial-peer 11 will be used to route calls to 1000, even though it has a lower preference.
