Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si V9 PBX with CallManager using the Cisco VG200-T1 CAS as an MGCP Gateway

This application note discusses the integration of the Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si V9 PBX with CallManager using the Cisco VG200-T1 CAS as an MGCP Gateway.

Integration Description

? Connectivity is achieved by using the T1-CAS signaling protocol type on the MGCP gateway and the Lucent/Avaya PBX. The figure below shows the general network layout for the integration.

Considerations

E&M-Immediate-Start Signaling

E&M-Immediate-start Signaling type is not supported on CCM Gateway configuration GUI.

E&M-Delay-Dial Signaling

E&M-Delay-Dial signaling is not functional when the default timer setting (300msec) for the Delay-Start parameter is used on the Gateway. Because this timer parameter cannot be changed by the CCM Gateway configuration GUI, the Wink Timer trunk parameter on the Lucent/Avaya PBX must be changed from the default of 300 msec to 400msec for the Delay-Dial signaling type to work properly.


Note: The Delay-Dial signaling type is a delayed version of a Wink-Start Signaling, therefore the Wink Timer on the PBX needs to be set to a greater value than the Delay-Start timer on the Gateway.


Wink-Start signaling is best choice for reliability.

Test Configuration

The following figure represents the various configurations used for testing.

Testbed Network Configuration

As shown in the figure above, a Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX was connected via a T1-CAS link to a Cisco VG200 Gateway, which in turn, was connected to an Ethernet switch. The interoperability testing involved basic call setup functionality between the CCM and the Lucent/Avaya PBX.

The objective was to test the VG200 Digital T1 interface over the T1-CAS signaling options on the Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX by testing basic call setup functionality to verify the voice path in both directions of the call between the CCM and the Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX

Test Results

Testing was performed by Test Engineer(s): Samir Batio, June 17, 2002

Test 1

In test 1:

The PBX1 signaling type was set to Wink/Wink.

The Cisco VG200 Gateway signaling type was set to E&M-Wink-Start.

The results are shown in the following table.

Call Comp?
Confirm voice path?
Comments

Phone A to Phone C

Yes

Yes

No problem dialing through the PBX using this signaling type.

Phone C to Phone A

Yes

Yes

No problem dialing through the PBX using this signaling type.


.

Test 2

In test 2:

The PBX1 signaling type was set to Delay/Delay.

The Cisco VG200 Gateway signaling type was set to E&M-Delay-Dial.

The results are shown in the following table.

Comments

Phone A to Phone C

Yes

Yes

Wink Timer on PBX should be set to 400 msec.

Phone C to Phone A

Yes

Yes

Wink Timer on PBX should be set to 400 msec.
