Cause Codes Description
0

CAUSE_CODE_Origination_DISCONNECT

The caller disconnected the call.

1

Check number, redial (unallocated number)

This cause indicates that the called party cannot be reached because, although the called party number is in a valid format, it is not currently allocated (assigned).

2

No route to network /Prefix 0 dialed in error

This cause indicates that the equipment sending this cause has received a request to route the call through a particular transit network which it does not recognize. The equipment sending this cause does not recognize the transit network either because the transit network does not exist or because that particular transit network, while it does exist, does not serve the equipment which is sending this cause.

or

This cause indicates the prefix 0 is invalid for the entered number.

3

No route to dest./Prefix 1 dialed in error

This cause indicates that the called party cannot be reached because the network through which the call has been routed does not serve the destination desired. This cause is supported on a network-dependent basis.

or

a 1 was dialed when not required. Redial without the 1.

4

No prefix 1/Special Information Tone

The prefix 1 is not required for this number

or

This cause indicates that the called party cannot be reached for reasons that are of a long term nature and that the special information tone should be returned to the calling party.

5

Misdialed trunk prefix (National use)

This cause indicates the erroneous inclusion of a trunk prefix in the called party number.

6

Channel unacceptable

This cause indicates a called user cannot negotiate for a B-channel other than that specified in the SETUP message.

7

Call awarded and being delivered on an established channel

This call indicates the user has been awarded the incoming calls, and that call is being connected to a channelA medium, such as voice, email, and chat, through which a contact connects with an intended recipient. already established to that user for similar calls (e.g. packet-mode, X.25 virtual calls, etc).

8

Call is proceeding/Preemption

Call in process, please standby.

or

This cause indicates a call has been preempted.

9

Preemption, reserved

This cause indicates a calls has been preempted due to the circuit being

reserved for reuse.

14

Excess digits received, call is proceeding

More digits were dialed than expected. Called number has been truncated to the expected number.

16

Disconnect

The Cause Codes 16 is a normal release of a contact and should be associated with contacts. 16 refers to a caller disconnecting the call, by hanging up for example, or an agent disconnecting the contact through the agent application.

17

Busy, try again later (User busy)

This cause is used to indicate that the called party is unable to accept another call because the user busy condition has been encountered. This cause value may be generated by the called user or by the network. In the case of user determined user busy it is noted that the user equipment is compatible with the call.

18

No far end response (No user responding)

This cause is used when a called party does not respond to a call establishment message with either an alerting or connect indication within the prescribed period of time allocated (before timer T303 or T310 has expired).

19

No answer (No answer from user, user alerted)

This cause is used when the called user has provided an alerting indication, but not a connect indication within a prescribed period of time (before timer T301 has expired).

20

Subscriber absent

This cause is used when a mobile station has logged off, radio contact is not obtained with a mobile station or a personal telecommunications user is temporarily not addressable at any user-network interface.

21

Call rejected

This cause indicates that the equipment sending this cause does not wish to accept this call, although it could have accepted the call because the equipment sending this cause is neither busy nor incompatible. This cause may also be generated by the network, indicating that the call was cleared due to a supplementary service constraint.

22

Number changed

This cause is returned to a calling party when the called party number indicated by the calling party is no longer assigned, The new called party number may optionally be included in the diagnostic field. If a network does not support this cause, cause no: 1, unallocated (unassigned) number shall be used.

25

Exchange routing error

Indicates that the destination indicated by the user cannot be reached because an intermediate exchange has released the call due to reaching a limit in executing the hop counter procedure.

26

Non-selected user clearing

This cause indicates the user has not been awarded the incoming call.

27

Destination out of order

This cause indicates that the destination indicated by the user cannot be reached because the interface to the destination is not functioning correctly. The term "not functioning correctly" indicates that a signal message was unable to be delivered to the remote party; e.g. a physical layer or data link layer failure at the remote party, or user equipment off-line.

28

Incorrect number (invalid number format, address incomplete)/Special intercept announcement

This cause indicates that the called party cannot be reached because the called party number is not in a valid format or is not complete.

or

This cause indicates the user should be returned a Special Intercept Announcement.

Network disconnect (Normal, unspecified)/Special intercept announcement: Call blocked because of group restrictions

This cause is used to report a normal event only when no other cause in the normal class applies.

or

This value indicates that a user from outside a basic business group (i.e. Centrex) violated an access restriction feature

34

No circuit available (circuit or channel congestion)

This cause indicates that there is no appropriate circuit/channelA medium, such as voice, email, and chat, through which a contact connects with an intended recipient. presently available to handle the call.

38

Net out of order

This cause indicates that the network is not functioning correctly and that the condition is likely to last a relatively long period of time e.g. immediately reattempting the call is not likely to be successful.

41

Net problem, redial (Temporary Failure)

This cause indicates that the network is not functioning correctly and that the condition is not likely to last a long period of time; e.g. the user may wish to try another call attempt almost immediately. May also indicate a data link layer malfunction locally or at the remote network interface or that a call was cleared due to protocol error(s) at the remote network interface.

42

Net busy, redial (Switching Equipment Congestion)

This cause indicates that the switching equipment generating this cause is experiencing a period of high traffic.

43

Access/user information discarded

This cause indicates that the network unable to deliver user information (i.e userto- user information, low level compatibility or sub-address, etc) to the remote users as requested.

44

No channel available (Requested circuit or channel not available)

This cause is returned when the circuit or channelA medium, such as voice, email, and chat, through which a contact connects with an intended recipient. indicated by the requesting entity cannot be provided by the other side of the interface.

47

Resource unavailable/New Destination

This cause is used to report a resource unavailable event only when no other cause in the resource unavailable class applies.

or

This cause is used to indicate that the original destination is unavailable and to

invoke redirection to a new destination

49

QOS unacceptable

This cause is returned when the Quality of Service is unacceptable.

50

Requested facility not subscribed

The cause is used to report that the user cannot use this feature because s/he has not subscribed to it.

51

This cause indicates a user request for action was rejected because the action was incompatible with the capability of the call.

52

Outgoing calls barred

This cause indicates that because of call screening provided by the network, the calling user is not permitted to make a call.

53

Service operation violated

This cause indicates that the user has violated the service operation.

54

Incoming calls barred

The user will not accept the call delivered in the SETUP message.

57

Bearer capability (Data/voice) not authorized

This cause indicates that the user has requested a bearer capability which is implemented by the equipment which generated this cause but the user is not authorized to use it. This is a common problem caused by wrong Telco provisioning of the line at the time of installation.
