7. If this integration is a second or subsequent integration, add the applicable new user templates for the new phone system. See Chapter 19 "Adding New User Templates for Multiple Integrations."

Requirements

The serial (SMDI, MCI, or MD-110) PIMG integration supports configurations of the following components:

Phone System

A phone system that supports the SMDI, MCI, or MD-110 serial protocols.

For a Centrex phone system only:

A Centrex service SMDI package, with one SMDI 4-wire private data link connected to the external modem.

A type 202T or 212A external modem, set to 1200 baud.

One or more of the applicable PIMG units. For details, see Chapter 1 "Introduction."

The serial data port on the phone system connected to the serial port on the master PIMG unit through an RS-232 serial cable (which is available from Cisco).

Specifications for the serial cable are in Connecting PBX-IP Media Gateway (PIMG) to the Serial Port of a PBX at http://www.dialogic.com/support/helpweb/mg/tn117.htm.

We recommend that the serial cable have the following construction:

A maximum of 50 feet (15.24 m) in length

24 AWG stranded conductors

Low capacitance—for example, no more than 12 pF/ft (39.4 pF/m) between conductors

At least 65 percent braided shield over aluminized polymer sleeve around conductors

UL-recognized overall cable jacket insulation with low dielectric constant

Braided shield fully terminated to and enclosed by a metal connector backshell

Gold-plated connector contacts

The voice messaging ports in the phone system connected by analog lines to the ports on the PIMG units.

We recommend that you 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 Cisco 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.

The phone system ready for the integration, as described in the documentation for the phone system.

Cisco Unity Connection Server

Cisco Unity Connection installed and ready for the integration, as described in the Cisco Unity Connection Installation Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_installation_guides_list.html.

A license that enables the applicable number of voice messaging ports.

Centralized Voice Messaging

Cisco 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. Connection will support 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 with the Phone System" chapter of the Cisco Unity Design Guide Release 10.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/design/guide/10xcucdgx.html.

Programming the Phone System for a Serial Integration with Cisco Unity Connection

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


Caution In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Cisco 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 Perform Message Notification, do not send calls to it.

Instruct the phone system technician to set up the phone system in the manner as directed in the following procedure.

To Program the Phone System for a Serial Integration with Cisco Unity Connection


Step 1 Program the analog lines connecting to the voice messaging ports on the PIMG units as a multiline hunt group.

Make sure that the phone system sends calls only to Cisco Unity Connection voice ports that are set to Answer Calls. Calls sent to a voice port not set to Answer Calls cannot be answered by Cisco Unity Connection and may cause other problems.

Step 2 Enable hookflash transfer capability on each analog line that connects to the voice messaging ports on the PIMG units.

Step 3 Enable caller ID (via SMDI, MCI, or MD-110) on each subscriber extension.

Step 4 For each subscriber extension, set the call forwarding options to the following:

Unrestricted source

Forward when the extension is not answered

Forward when the extension is busy


Setting Up the Analog PIMG Units for a Serial Integration

Do the following procedures to set up the analog PIMG units that are connected to the phone system for a serial integration by using the SMDI, MCI, or MD-110 protocol.

These procedures require that the following tasks have already been completed:

The phone system is connected to the PIMG units by using analog lines and the applicable RS-232 serial cable.

The PIMG units are ready to be connected to the LAN or WAN.

The PIMG units are connected to a power source.

Fields that are not mentioned in the following procedures must keep their default values. For the default values of all fields, see the manufacturer documentation for the PIMG units.

Creating a New Integration with the Phone System

After ensuring that the phone system, the PIMG units, and Cisco Unity Connection are ready for the integration, do the following procedure to set up the integration and to enter the port settings.

To Create an Integration


Step 1 Sign in to Cisco Unity Connection Administration.

Step 2 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations, then select Phone System.

Step 3 On the Search Phone Systems page, under Display Name, select the name of the default phone system.

Step 4 On the Phone System Basics page, in the Phone System Name field, enter the descriptive name that you want for the phone system.

Step 5 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 Cisco 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 6 Select Save.

Step 7 On the Phone System Basics page, in the Related Links drop-down box, select Add Port Group and select Go.

Step 8 On the New Port Group page, enter the applicable settings and select Save.

Check this check box.

Number of Ports

Enter 8.

(If you want to use fewer than eight voice messaging ports, enter the number of voice messaging ports that you want to use on this PIMG unit.)

Note For a Cisco Unity Connection cluster, the Cisco Unity Connection server must have the number of voice messaging ports that are set up on the phone system for the PIMG integration so that this Cisco Unity Connection server can handle all voice messaging traffic for the Cisco Unity Connection cluster if one of the servers stops functioning. For example, if the phone system is set up with 16 voice messaging ports, this Cisco Unity Connection server must have 16 voice messaging ports.

Phone System

Select the name of the phone system that you entered in Step 4.

Port Group

Select the name of the port group that you added in Step 8.


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. The fields in the following table are the ones that you can change.

Enabled

Check this check box to enable the port. The port is enabled during normal operation.

Uncheck this check box to disable the port. When the port is disabled, calls to the port get a ringing tone but are not answered. Typically, the port is disabled only by the installer during testing.

Extension

Enter the extension for the port as assigned on the phone system.

Answer Calls

Check this check box to designate the port for answering calls. These calls can be incoming calls from unidentified callers or from users.

Perform Message Notification

Check this check box to designate the port for notifying users of messages. Assign Perform Message Notification to the least busy ports.

Send MWI Requests

Check this check box to designate the port for turning MWIs on and off. Assign Send MWI Requests to the least busy ports.

Allow TRAP Connections

Check this check box so that users can use the port for recording and playback through the phone in Cisco Unity Connection web applications. Assign Allow TRAP Connections to the least busy ports.

Outgoing Hunt Order

Enter the priority order in which Cisco Unity Connection will use the ports when dialing out (for example, if the Perform Message Notification, Send MWI Requests, or Allow TRAP Connections check box is checked). The highest numbers are used first. However, when multiple ports have the same Outgoing Hunt Order number, Cisco Unity Connection will use the port that has been idle the longest.


Step 13 Select Save.

Step 14 Select Next.

Step 15 Repeat Step 12 through Step 14 for all remaining voice messaging ports for the phone system.

Step 16 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations, then select Phone System.
