Cisco Unified Communications Manager Line-Side Support

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Line-Side Support

Cisco Unified Communications Manager is an enterprise-class IP communications processing system. It extends enterprise telephony features and capabilities to IP phones, media processing devices, VoIP gateways, mobile devices, and multimedia applications. Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) provides line-side support for Cisco Unified Communications Manager. This support enables communication between devices (such as phones) used by remote users on different logical networks, in both cloud-based and premise-based deployments.

Restrictions for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Line-Side Support

  • In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Line-Side Support deployments, Cisco Unified Border Element does not support TFTP encrypted configuration files.

Information About Cisco Unified Communications Manager Line-Side Support

Cisco UBE Line-Side Deployment

In a typical deployment Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) is placed between the Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the endpoint. Before invoking a service the phone contacts the CUBE Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server to get configuration information such as the Certificate Trust List (CTL) file and phone-specific configuration settings. The phone then registers with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. In the deployment shown below, Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the phone configuration operate in unsecured mode (TCP to Real-Time Transport Protocol). The phone configuration can be changed to operate in a secure mode (Transport Layer Security Secure to Real-Time Transport Protocol) if needed. When the phone registration is completed the phone can invoke all normal call services.

Line-Side Support for CUCM on CUBE

For an IP phone to register on a CUCM through CUBE, CUBE must be configured to do the following requirements.

  • TCP must be used for registration.
  • The MAC address of the device (device ID) and the device name, present in the CONTACT header of the REGISTER message, need to be copied to the outgoing messages and passed to the CUCM intact.
Table 1 Command for Line-Side Support for CUCM on CUBE

Global VoIP Configuration mode (config-voi-serv)

extension cucm

When Line Side Support for CUCM on CUBE feature is configured, the following supported, nonmandatory headers are passed through automatically without the need for further configuration:

  • Call-Info
  • Content-ID
  • Allow-Events
  • Supported
  • Remote-Party-ID
  • Require
  • Referred-By
Figure 2. Predefined Supported NonMandatory Headers

When Line Side Support for CUCM on CUBE is configured, predefined SIP profiles automatically remove the Cisco-Guide header from the outgoing INVITE.

Note


If a user explicitly configures the above configurations, ensure that the configurations are merged with the above automatic configurations.

Configuring SIP Extension

You can use the SIP extension to enable support of CUCM-specific features. Configure the SIP extension under dial-peer facing CUCM lineside and CUCM. You can also configure the SIP extension command in global SIP configuration.

                The following example shows how to import the CUCM and CAPF key after you have downloaded the CUCM key (the CallManager.pem file) and the CAPF key (the CAPF.pem file) from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Operating System Administration web page.

                Device(config)# crypto pki trustpoint cucm_trustpoint
                 Device(config-ca-trustpoint)# revocation-check none
                 Device(config-ca-trustpoint)# enrollment terminal
