Use the following task list to set up a new integration with the NEC NEAX 2400 phone system. If you are installing a new Cisco Unity Connection server by using the Cisco Unity Connection Installation Guide, you may have already completed some of the following tasks.

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 the "Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity Connection" section.

3. Program the NEC NEAX 2400 phone system and extensions. See the "Programming the NEC NEAX 2400 Phone System" section.

4. Set up the PIMG units. See the "Setting Up the PIMG Units" section.

5. Create the integration. See the "Creating a New Integration with the NEC NEAX 2400 Phone System" section.

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

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

Requirements

The NEC NEAX 2400 integration supports configurations of the following components:

Phone System

One of the following NEC NEAX 2400 phone systems:

IMG

IMX

IPX (release 15 or later)

One or more of the applicable PIMG units. For details, refer to the "Supported Circuit-Switched Phone System Integrations" section of Cisco Unity Connection System Requirements, and Supported Hardware and Software at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_installation_guides_list.html.

The voice messaging ports in the phone system connected by digital 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 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.

Integration Description

The NEC NEAX 2400 PIMG integration sends call information and voice connections through the digital lines, which connect the phone system to the PIMG units. The PIMG units communicate with the Cisco Unity Connection server through the LAN or WAN by using Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Figure 1 shows the required connections.

Figure 1 Connections Between the Phone System and Cisco Unity Connection

Call Information

The phone system sends the following information with forwarded calls:

The extension of the called party

The extension of the calling party (for internal calls) or the phone number of the calling party (if it is an external call and the system uses caller ID)

The reason for the forward (the extension is busy, does not answer, or is set to forward all calls)

Cisco Unity Connection uses this information to answer the call appropriately. For example, a call forwarded to Cisco Unity Connection is answered with the personal greeting of the user. If the phone system routes the call to Cisco Unity Connection without this information, Cisco Unity Connection answers with the opening greeting.

Integration Functionality

The NEC NEAX 2400 integration with Cisco Unity Connection provides the following features:

Call forward to personal greeting

Call forward to busy greeting

Caller ID

Easy message access (a subscriber can retrieve messages without entering an ID because Cisco Unity Connection identifies the subscriber based on the extension from which the call originated; a password may be required)

Identified subscriber messaging (Cisco Unity Connection identifies the subscriber who leaves a message during a forwarded internal call, based on the extension from which the call originated)

Message waiting indication (MWI)

Integrations with Multiple Phone Systems

Cisco Unity Connection can be integrated with multiple phone systems at one time. For information on and instructions for integrating Cisco Unity Connection with multiple phone systems, refer to the Multiple Phone System Integration Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html.

Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity Connection

Before programming the phone system, you need to plan how the voice messaging ports will be used by Cisco Unity Connection. The following considerations will affect the programming for the phone system (for example, setting up the hunt group or call forwarding for the voice messaging ports):

The number of voice messaging ports installed.

The number of voice messaging ports that will answer calls.

The number of voice messaging ports that will only dial out, for example, to send message notification, to set message waiting indicators (MWIs), and to make telephone record and playback (TRAP) connections.

The following table describes the voice messaging port settings in Cisco Unity Connection that can be set on Telephony Integrations > Port of Cisco Unity Connection Administration.

Table 1 Settings for the Voice Messaging Ports 

Field
Considerations

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.


The Number of Voice Messaging Ports to Install

The number of voice messaging ports to install depends on numerous factors, including:

The number of calls Cisco Unity Connection will answer when call traffic is at its peak.

The expected length of each message that callers will record and that users will listen to.

The number of users.

The number of ports that will be set to dial out only.

The number of calls made for message notification.

The number of MWIs that will be activated when call traffic is at its peak.

The number of TRAP connections needed when call traffic is at its peak. (TRAP connections are used by Cisco Unity Connection web applications to play back and record over the phone.)

The number of calls that will use the automated attendant and call handlers when call traffic is at its peak.

It is best to install only the number of voice messaging ports that are needed so that system resources are not allocated to unused ports.

The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Answer Calls

The calls that the voice messaging ports answer can be incoming calls from unidentified callers or from users. Typically, the voice messaging ports that answer calls are the busiest.

You can set voice messaging ports to both answer calls and to dial out (for example, to send message notifications). However, when the voice messaging ports perform more than one function and are very active (for example, answering many calls), the other functions may be delayed until the voice messaging port is free (for example, message notifications cannot be sent until there are fewer calls to answer). For best performance, dedicate certain voice messaging ports for only answering incoming calls, and dedicate other ports for only dialing out. Separating these port functions eliminates the possibility of a collision, in which an incoming call arrives on a port at the same time that Cisco Unity Connection takes the port off-hook to dial out.

The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Only Dial Out, and Not Answer Calls

Ports that will only dial out and will not answer calls can do one or more of the following:

Notify users by phone, pager, or e-mail of messages that have arrived.

Turn MWIs on and off for user extensions.

Make a TRAP connection so that users can use the phone as a recording and playback device in Cisco Unity Connection web applications.

Typically, these voice messaging ports are the least busy ports.


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 Send MWI Requests, do not send calls to it.

Preparing for Programming the Phone System

Record your decisions about the voice messaging ports to guide you in programming the phone system.

Programming the NEC NEAX 2400 Phone System

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 Dialout MWI, do not send calls to it.

Testing the Integration

To test whether Cisco Unity Connection and the phone system are integrated correctly, do the following procedures in the order listed.

If any of the steps indicate a failure, refer to the following documentation as applicable:

The installation guide for the phone system.

The setup information earlier in this guide.

To Set Up the Test Configuration


Step 1 Set up two test extensions (Phone 1 and Phone 2) on the same phone system that Cisco Unity Connection is connected to.

Step 2 Set Phone 1 to forward calls to the Cisco Unity Connection pilot number when calls are not answered.


Caution The phone system must forward calls to the Cisco Unity Connection pilot number in no fewer than four rings. Otherwise, the test may fail.

Step 3 To create a test user for testing, in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Users, then click Users.

Step 4 On the Search Users page, on the User menu, click New User.

Step 5 On the New User page, enter the following settings.

Step 6 Click Save.

Step 7 On the Edit User Basics page, in the Voice Name field, record a voice name for the test user.

Step 8 In the Phone System field, confirm that the phone system selected is the phone system that Phone 1 is connected to.

Step 9 Uncheck the Set for Self-enrollment at Next Login check box.

Step 10 Click Save.

Step 11 On the Edit menu, click Message Waiting Indicators.

Step 12 On the Message Waiting Indicators page, click the message waiting indicator. If no message waiting indication is in the table, click Add New.

Step 13 On the Edit Message Waiting Indicator page, enter the following settings.

Step 14 Click Save.

Step 15 On the Edit menu, click Transfer Options.

Step 16 On the Transfer Options page, click the active option.

Step 17 On the Edit Transfer Option page, under Transfer Action, click the Extension option and enter the extension of Phone 1.

Step 18 In the Transfer Type field, click Release to Switch.

Step 19 Click Save.

Step 20 Minimize the Cisco Unity Connection Administration window.

Do not close the Cisco Unity Connection Administration window because you will use it again in a later procedure.

Step 21 On the Cisco Unity Connection desktop, double-click the Tools Depot icon.

Step 22 In the left pane of the Tools Depot window, expand Switch Integration Tools, then double-click Port Status Monitor. The Port Status Monitor window appears.

Step 23 On the Ports menu, click Start All, and arrange the port monitors so that you can notice which port will handle the calls that you will make.


To Test an External Call with Release Transfer


Step 1 From Phone 2, enter the access code necessary to get an outside line, then enter the number outside callers use to dial directly to Cisco Unity Connection.

Step 2 In the Port Status Monitor, note which port handles this call.

Step 3 When you hear the opening greeting, enter the extension for Phone 1. Hearing the opening greeting means that the port is configured correctly.

Step 4 Confirm that Phone 1 rings and that you hear a ringback tone on Phone 2. Hearing a ringback tone means that Cisco Unity Connection correctly released the call and transferred it to Phone 1.

Step 5 Leaving Phone 1 unanswered, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that release transfer is successful.

Step 6 Confirm that, after the number of rings that the phone system is set to wait, the call is forwarded to Cisco Unity Connection and that you hear the greeting for the test user. Hearing the greeting means that the phone system forwarded the unanswered call and the call-forward information to Cisco Unity Connection, which correctly interpreted the information.

Step 7 On the Port Status Monitor, note which port handles this call.

Step 8 Leave a message for the test user and hang up Phone 2.

Step 9 In the Port Status Monitor, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that the port was successfully released when the call ended.

Step 10 Confirm that the MWI on Phone 1 is activated. The activated MWI means that the phone system and Cisco Unity Connection are successfully integrated for turning on MWIs.


To Test Listening to Messages


Step 1 From Phone 1, enter the internal pilot number for Cisco Unity Connection.

Step 2 When asked for your password, enter the password for the test user. Hearing the request for your password means that the phone system sent the necessary call information to Cisco Unity Connection, which correctly interpreted the information.

Step 3 Confirm that you hear the recorded voice name for the test user (if you did not record a voice name for the test user, you will hear the extension number for Phone 1). Hearing the voice name means that Cisco Unity Connection correctly identified the user by the extension.

Step 4 Listen to the message.

Step 5 After listening to the message, delete the message.

Step 6 Confirm that the MWI on Phone 1 is deactivated. The deactivated MWI means that the phone system and Cisco Unity Connection are successfully integrated for turning off MWIs.

Step 7 Hang up Phone 1.

Step 8 On the Port Status Monitor, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that the port was successfully released when the call ended.


To Set Up Supervised Transfer on Cisco Unity Connection


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, on the Edit Transfer Option page for the test user, in the Transfer Type field, click Supervise Transfer.

Step 2 In the Rings to Wait For field, enter 3.

Step 3 Click Save.

Step 4 Minimize the Cisco Unity Connection Administration window.

Do not close the Cisco Unity Connection Administration window because you will use it again in a later procedure.


To Test Supervised Transfer


Step 1 From Phone 2, enter the access code necessary to get an outside line, then enter the number outside callers use to dial directly to Cisco Unity Connection.

Step 2 On the Port Status Monitor, note which port handles this call.

Step 3 When you hear the opening greeting, enter the extension for Phone 1. Hearing the opening greeting means that the port is configured correctly.

Step 4 Confirm that Phone 1 rings and that you do not hear a ringback tone on Phone 2. Instead, you should hear the indication your phone system uses to mean that the call is on hold (for example, music).

Step 5 Leaving Phone 1 unanswered, confirm that the state of the port handling the call remains "Busy." This state and hearing an indication that you are on hold mean that Cisco Unity Connection is supervising the transfer.

Step 6 Confirm that, after three rings, you hear the greeting for the test user. Hearing the greeting means that Cisco Unity Connection successfully recalled the supervised-transfer call.

Step 7 During the greeting, hang up Phone 2.

Step 8 On the Port Status Monitor, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that the port was successfully released when the call ended.

Step 9 Exit the Port Status Monitor.


To Delete the Test User


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Users, then click Users.

Step 2 On the Search Users page, check the check box to the left of the test user.

Step 3 Click Delete Selected.


(Multiple Integrations Only) Adding New User Templates

When you create the first phone system integration, this phone system is automatically selected in the default user template. The users that you add after creating this phone system integration will be assigned to this phone system by default.

However, for each additional phone system integration that you create, you must add the applicable new user templates that will assign users to the new phone system. You must add the new templates before you add new users who will be assigned to the new phone system.

For details on adding new user templates, refer to the "Adding, Changing, or Deleting an Account Template" chapter in the Cisco Unity Connection User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html.
