Note Caller ID is supported for internal callers only. The Avaya S8500/S8700 phone system does not support caller ID for external callers.


Task List to Create an Avaya S8500/S8700 In-Band TIMG Integration

Before doing the following tasks to integrate Cisco Unity Connection with the phone system by using the T1 media gateway (TIMG), confirm that the Cisco Unity Connection server is ready for the integration by completing the applicable tasks in the Cisco Unity Connection Installation Guide.

1. Review the system and equipment requirements to confirm that all phone system and Cisco Unity Connection server requirements have been met. See the "Requirements" section.

2. Plan how the voice messaging ports will be used by Cisco Unity Connection. See Chapter 2 "Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity Connection."

3. Program the phone system and extensions. See the "Programming the Phone System for an In-Band TIMG Integration with Cisco Unity Connection" section.

4. Set up the TIMG units for an in-band integration. See the "Setting Up the TIMG Units" section.

5. Create the integration. See the "Creating an Integration with the Phone System" section.

6. Test the integration. See Chapter 6 "Testing the Integration."

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

Requirements

The Avaya S8500/S8700 in-band TIMG integration supports configurations of the following components:

Phone System

Avaya S8500/S8700 phone system.

Software version Communication Manager 2.0.

T1 digital trunk interface card.

One or more TIMG units (media gateways).

The voice messaging ports in the phone system connected by T1 digital lines (DS1 or "dry T1" digital lines only) to the ports on the TIMG units.


Caution T1 (or "wet T1") connections to the PSTN must be through an MTU, CSU, or other device that provides line isolation. Otherwise, the TIMG units may be damaged.

The TIMG units connected to the same LAN or WAN that Cisco Unity Connection is connected to.

If the TIMG 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 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 applicable Cisco Unity Connection Installation Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/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.

Programming the Phone System for an In-Band TIMG 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.

To Program the Avaya S8500/S8700 Phone System


Step 1 Create a coverage path which contains the TIMG unit hunt group number as the coverage point.

Step 2 Assign the coverage path that you created in Step 1 to the user stations that must forward to the voice messaging ports on the TIMG units when calls are not answered or when the user station is busy, based on one of the call transfer types shown in Table 4-1.

Table 4-1 Call Transfer Types 

Transfer Type
Usage

Release transfer

(blind transfer)

Program the user station to forward calls to the pilot number when:

The extension is busy.

The call is not answered.

Supervised transfer

Program the user station to forward calls to the pilot number only when the call is not answered (on the phone system, the number of rings before forwarding must be more than the number of rings to supervise the call). Confirm that call forwarding is disabled when the extension is busy.


Step 3 Assign an extension number for each voice messaging port, which is a digital line that connects to the TIMG unit, and set the voice messaging port options as shown in Table 4-2.


Note We recommend that you distribute the voice messaging ports among multiple phone system line cards so that call processing can continue even if a line card becomes inactive.

For smaller systems, include in the hunt group all voice messaging ports when the ports will be set to both answer calls and dial out (for example, to set MWIs).


Setting Up the TIMG Units

Do the following procedures to set up the TIMG units (media gateways) that are connected to the phone system.

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

The phone system is connected to the TIMG units by using T1 digital lines.

The TIMG units are connected to a power source.

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


Caution Because TIMG units have the same default IP address, you must set them up one at a time. Otherwise, you will experience IP address conflicts.

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 TIMG units.

Creating an Integration with the Phone System

After ensuring that the phone system, the TIMG units, and the Cisco Unity Connection server are ready for the integration, do the following procedures 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.
