Test Dialplan

This page allows users to test a dial plan for a specific telephone number or for certain destinations at any moment in time.



You can use the following search parameters:


Field Description

Phone Number

Type either a full number or prefix into this field to see how the resulting route list searches for it.

Service Type

The type of service the system uses to search for routes.

Transport Protocol

(only for Messaging Service)

Filter the list of routes by type of transport protocol used for message delivery (SIP or SMPP). Select Any to view the routing results for both of the transport protocols on separate tabs.

Routing Plan

Select a routing plan to be used for a dial plan test. The system will offer a different set of routes depending on the routing plan. Select All Available Routes to test a dial plan using all available routes, regardless of their route category.

Routing Mode

You may select either Generic Routing (to see all the routes outside of the network) or a specific node (to see the routes available when a call is handled by this node).

Apply Penalties

(only for Voice Calls)

Clear this check box to see the resulting list of routes regardless of the currently applied adaptive routing penalties.

HLR Lookup

(only for Messaging services)

Enable this option to test the message routing using the MCC / MNC destination pair. Enter the destination number in the E.164 format (the actual phone number) and then click Search.

NOTE: HLR lookup is only done if the HLRNumberLookup module is configured on the Configuration server.

Date and Time

The search can be performed in real time: click the  Stopwatch icon or click the YYYY-MM-DD link to set a date using the calendar.


As a result, you will see the routes that will be tried and the routes that are ignored. The ignored routes are displayed as dimmed; point to a dimmed route with the mouse cursor to see a tool tip and explanation.


All routes are displayed in the form of the following table:
