Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si V9 PBX with CallManager using the Cisco 6608-T1 PRI NI-2 Gateway

This application note discusses the integration of the Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si V9 PBX with CallManager using the Cisco 6608-T1 PRI NI-2 Gateway.

Integration Description

Connectivity is achieved by using the industry standard PRI NI-2 protocol. The Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si can be configured as either the NETWORK or USER side. The figure below shows the general network layout for the integration.

Configuring the Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX

To configure the Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX, do the following:


Step 1. Add the new circuit pack.

Step 2. Add the new signaling group.

Step 3. Add the new trunk group.

Step 4. Add the Uniform Dialing Plan.

Circuit Pack

The following figures show the configuration of the DS1 circuit pack.

Calling Name and Number Feature

When calling from a Cisco 7960 IP phone to a Lucent/Avaya digital phone, Calling Name and Number are displayed on both phones after the call is answered as expected.

When calling from a Lucent/Avaya digital phone to a Cisco 7960 IP phone, the IP phone displays the Connected Name and Number after the call is answered. The Lucent/Avaya phone, however, displays only the Called Name but not the Called Number. It was verified using an ISDN protocol analyzer that the CallManager was not sending Connected Number information in the connect message back to PBX. Only the Connected Name was sent in the connect message.

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 an ISDN T1 PRI link to a Cisco 6608-T1 Gateway, which in turn, was connected to an Ethernet switch. The interoperability testing involved Layers 1, 2 and 3 on the ISDN PRI link between a Cisco 6608-T1 and the PBX.

Layer 1 (Physical Layer)

The Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX configuration screen for the DS1 trunk interface is reached using the change ds1 a12 command, which sets the T1 physical layer parameters.

Layers 2 & 3 (Q.921 and Q.931)

Layer 2 and 3 packet exchanges were monitored using an Acacia Clarinet protocol analyzer, bridged across the PRI link in high impedance mode.

Layer 2 Q.921 packets were monitored to ensure that each PBX/6608-T1 software configuration properly exchanged SABME/UA packets to initialize the ISDN link, and then RR packets were exchanged every 30 seconds.

Layer 3 Q.931 packets were monitored to ensure that the appropriate call setup/teardown packets were exchanged for each configuration, and that the SETUP packets contained the mandatory Information Elements with the necessary details, as well as optional IEs such as Calling Name and Number.

Telephone calls were made end-to-end in both directions through the Cisco 6608-T1 Gateway, and a check was made to ensure that there was an audio path in both directions for each call.

User/Network Settings

The Cisco 6608-T1 Gateway with ISDN protocol type setting of PRI-NI2 supports both protocol sides by selecting "Network/User" in the protocol side field when configuring the Gateway via CallManager.

The Lucent/Avaya Definity G3si PBX supports both "USER" and "NETWORK" protocol sides.

Test Results

Testing was performed by Test Engineer(s): Samir Batio, October 2, 2001

Test 1

In test 1:

The PBX1 country-protocol is set to 1a (US / AT&T TR 41449/41459) to emulate the Network.

The Cisco 6608-T1 Gateway was configured as a PRI NI2 to emulate the User.

The results are shown in the following tables.
