"TCLAS flow deleted" as Termination Reason in voice calls over Wireless

Hi all.

We have deployed voice over wireless with Cisco 7921 and 7925 IP Phones and an Aruba6000 controller (ArubaOS 6.4.x) with a mix os AP 105, 124 and 215 and a SSID dedicated only for voice. Lately some users complained of the calls finishing just after picking up the phone or after only a few seconds and in the Dashboard of the controller (Dashboard > UCC > QoS Details, for example) we are noting that many calls terminate after only a few seconds (in some cases after 1 second) with reason "TCLAS flow deleted".

I've been unable to found some Aruba document refering to such term, although it seems clear that it's related with QoS/TSPEC. The voice VAP has an WMM Traffic management profile applied, and a VoIP Call Admission Control profile applied to the groups that contain such VAP (the SSID profile has an High-throughput SSID Profile, by the way). The profiles are configured accordingly, as far as possible, the guidelines of Cisco for the 792x phones (http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/cuipph/7925g/7_0/english/deployment/guide/7925dply.pdf). Here are the profiles:

Any idea about what could be causing the "TCLAS flow deleted"?

Remove your WMM traffic management profile.

Remove your VOIP Call admission control profile.

See if that fixes it.

 

You have too many options enabled to say what it could be.

Going along with what Colin is suggesting, are you using Airwave?  You could use the Call Volume table on the UCC Dashboard to determine if you're hitting your max of 12 simultaneous calls on an AP.

Hi all and thanks for the replies.

 

I removed WMM traffic management and VOIP Call admission control profiles, but the problem persists, perhaps at a slightly minor frequency.

 

Yes, I'm using Airwave and I've found that in some very specific cases and moments some APs gets more than 12 concurrent calls, although don't seems to correlate with the "TCLAS flow deleted" messages and it don't occurs with enough frequency to explaining the messages.

xosema,

 

Please PM me your email address so I can send you a link to send me your logs.tar so I can take a look and come up with a recommendation.

Re: "TCLAS flow deleted" as Termination Reason in voice calls over Wireless

A call is released with reason code as TCLAS_FLOW_DELETED if AP sends ageout for the client due to inactivity.  What kind of voice clients are these (what voice protocol is in use)?  I have looked over your logs and I have a few questions...

Re: "TCLAS flow deleted" as Termination Reason in voice calls over Wireless

The voice clientes are Cisco 792x IP phones using SCCP.

 

It's strange that the "TCLAS flow deleted" appears due to client ageout: "Station Ageout Time" is configured to 1000 seconds and I've verified that, for the same phones, several TCLAS terminations occurs frequently in intervals under that 1000 seconds, some times even in intervals of few .

 

Feel free to ask.

Re: "TCLAS flow deleted" as Termination Reason in voice calls over Wireless

Please send me the logs of the controller with the issue.  I only got the logs for the master controller.

I've sended you the logs of the right controller now, sorry!

Re: "TCLAS flow deleted" as Termination Reason in voice calls over Wireless

Hi.

 

Unfortunately after aplying yesterday the suggested changes (disabling the "dot11a-traffic-mgmt-profile" and "dot11a-traffic-mgmt-profile" profiles in the AP Group and enabling "Drop Broadcast and Multicast" in the other SSIDs of the same AP Group) the TCLAS messages remains. Any idea?

 

I'm gonna try to review the configuration both in the phones themselves as in the Call Manager searching for patterns to verify if the problem only occurs in some of them and if some kind of configuration matches the problematic ones.

 

Regards.
