Requirements

The Alcatel 4400 integration supports configurations of the following components:

Phone System

  • Alcatel 4400.
  • Software version 3.1 or later.
  • The following features are enabled:

VPS (option 21; the value must equal the number of voice messaging ports in the hunt group for Cisco Unity Connection)

CLIonVPS_SL (option 121; the value must equal the number of voice messaging ports in the hunt group for Unity Connection)

  • One or more of the applicable PIMG units. For details, see the “Introduction” chapter.
  • The voice messaging ports in the phone system connected by analog lines to the ports on the PIMG units.

You should connect the voice messaging ports on the phone system to the ports on the PIMG units in a planned manner to simplify troubleshooting. For example, the first phone system voice messaging port connects to the first port on the first PIMG unit, the second phone system voice messaging port connects to the second port on the first PIMG unit, and so on.

  • The PIMG units connected to the same LAN or WAN that Unity Connection is connected to.
  • If the PIMG units connect to a WAN, the requirements for the WAN network connections are:

For G.729a codec formatting, a minimum of 32.76 Kbps guaranteed bandwidth for each voice messaging port.

For G.711 codec formatting, a minimum of 91.56 Kbps guaranteed bandwidth for each voice messaging port.

No network devices that implement network address translation (NAT).

A maximum 200 ms one-way network latency.

Unity Connection Server

Centralized Voice Messaging

Unity Connection supports centralized voice messaging through the phone system, which supports various inter-phone system networking protocols including proprietary protocols such as Avaya DCS, Nortel MCDN, or Siemens CorNet, and standards-based protocols such as QSIG or DPNSS. Note that centralized voice messaging is a function of the phone system and its inter-phone system networking, not voicemail. Unity Connection supports centralized voice messaging as long as the phone system and its inter-phone system networking are properly configured. For details, see the “Centralized Voice Messaging” section in the “Integrating Cisco Unity Connection 10.x with the Phone System” chapter of the Design Guide for Cisco Unity Connection , Release 10.x at http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/design/guide/10xcucdgx/10xcucdg050.html .

Clearing MWIs from a Legacy Voice Messaging System

If users do not have existing voicemail on a legacy voice messaging system, skip this section and continue with the next section.

If users have existing voicemail on a legacy voice messaging system, do the following procedure.

To Clear MWIs from a Legacy Voice Messaging System


Step 1 Have all users who are migrating to Unity Connection delete or listen to their voice messages on the legacy voice messaging system.

Step 2 Confirm that all MWIs for the subscribers migrating to Unity Connection are turned off.


 

Programming Alcatel 4400 Phone System for Integration

If you use programming options other than those supplied in the following procedure, the performance of the integration may be affected.

The following programming instructions are provided as an example only. The specific programming for your phone system may vary depending on its configuration.


Caution In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Unity Connection that cannot answer calls (voice messaging ports that are not set to Answer Calls). For example, if a voice messaging port is set only to Send MWI Requests, do not send calls to it.

Do the procedures in the applicable section depending on the programming interface you have for the Alcatel 4400 phone system:

Programming through the Command Line Interface (CLI)

Creating a New Integration with the Alcatel 4400 Phone System

To Create an Integration


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations and select Phone System .

Step 2 On the Search Phone Systems page, under Display Name, select the name of the default phone system.

Step 3 On the Phone System Basics page, in the Phone System Name field, enter the descriptive name that you want for the phone system.

Step 4 If you want to use this phone system as the default for TRaP connections so that administrators and users without voicemail boxes can record and playback through the phone in Unity Connection web applications, check the Default TRAP Switch check box. If you want to use another phone system as the default for TRaP connections, uncheck this check box.

Step 5 Under Message Waiting Indicator Settings, select Use Same Port for Enabling and Disabling MWIs and select Save .

Step 6 On the Phone System Basics page, in the Related Links drop-down box, select Add Port Group and select Go .

Step 7 On the New Port Group page, enter the applicable settings and select Save . (For information on each field, see Help> This Page).

 

Step 8 On the Port Group Basics page, under Message Waiting Indicator Settings, uncheck the Enable Message Waiting Indicators check box and select Save .

Step 9 In the Related Links drop-down box, select Add Ports and select Go .

Step 10 On the New Port page, enter the following settings and select Save .

 

Step 11 On the Search Ports page, select the display name of the first voice messaging port that you created for this phone system integration.


Note By default, the display names for the voice messaging ports are composed of the port group display name followed by incrementing numbers.


Step 12 On the Port Basics page, set the voice messaging port settings as applicable and select Save. (For information on each field, see Help> This Page).

 

Step 13 Select Next and repeat Step 12 through Step 13 for all remaining voice messaging ports for the phone system.

Step 14 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations and select Phone System .

Step 15 On the Search Phone Systems page, under Display Name, select the name of the phone system that you entered in Step 3.

Step 16 Repeat Step 6 through Step 17 for each remaining PIMG unit integrated with Unity Connection.


Note Each PIMG unit is connected to one port group with the applicable voice messaging ports. For example, a system that uses five PIMG units requires five port groups, one port group for each PIMG unit.


Step 17 To create a port group for MWIs, do the following substeps.


Note All MWI requests are handled by the master PIMG unit and sent to the phone system over the RS-232 serial cable (without using voice messaging ports). So the following substeps create a separate port group without voice messaging ports and enable the port group for MWIs that are “not port specific” (they do not use ports).


a. In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations , then select Port Group .

b. On the Search Port Groups page, select Add New .

c. On the New Port Group page, enter the applicable settings and select Save . (For information on each field, see Help> This Page).

 

d. On the Port Group Basics page, on the Edit menu, select Advanced Settings .

e. On the Edit Advanced Settings page, under SIP MWI Requests, select Not Port Specific . and select Save .

f. On the Edit menu, select Port Group Basics .

g. Under Port Group, select Reset .

h. Under Message Waiting Indicator Settings, confirm that the Enable Message Waiting Indicators check box is checked and select Save .

Step 18 If another phone system integration exists, in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations , then select Trunk . Otherwise, skip to Step 22.

Step 19 On the Search Phone System Trunks page, on the Phone System Trunk menu, select New Phone System Trunk .

Step 20 On the New Phone System Trunk page, enter the following settings for the phone system trunk and select Save . (For information on each field, see Help> This Page).

 

Step 21 Repeat Step 19 and Step 20 for all remaining phone system trunks that you want to create.

Step 22 In the Related Links drop-down list, select Check Telephony Configuration and select Go to confirm the phone system integration settings.

If the test is not successful, the Task Execution Results displays one or more messages with troubleshooting steps. After correcting the problems, test the connection again.

Step 23 In the Task Execution Results window, select Close .
