SIP telephones to a SIP infrastructure consisting of the Avaya Converged Communications Server and Avaya S8300 Media Server with G700 Media Gateway. Also described is how Avaya Outboard Proxy SIP station features can be made available to Cisco telephones in addition to the standard features supported in the telephone.
Application Notes do not address configuration of the Avaya 4602 SIP telephones, which were successfully tested using the standard product configuration steps. The main difference between the Cisco 7940 and 7960 SIP telephones is the number of line appearances supported by each phone (two and six, respectively). The configuration steps described in these Application Notes apply to both models.

These features are summarized in Table 4. Since the Cisco 7940/7960 SIP telephones are compatible with Outboard Proxy SIP, these features can be made available to the user. Details on their operation and administration can be found in Reference .
MWI Draft 4 (Subscribe/Notify method) will illuminate/extinguish its MWI lamp when voice messages are left/read for that extension. Since the Cisco 7940/7960 SIP phones support only the unsolicited Notify method for MWI, this feature is not currently supported in Communication Manager.
4.2. Configure the Cisco 7940/7960 SIP Telephone Cisco 7940/7960 SIP telephones can be configured using two methods: 1. Configuration files downloaded from a TFTP server specified via DHCP at boot time. Two such files are installed on the TFTP server: a default configuration file containing parameter settings that apply to all phones (SIPDefault.cnf), and a phone-specific...
ObjectNameXParamName, where “X” refers to the line appearance number to which the parameter applies (1-2 for the 7940 and 1-6 for the 7960 phone). The table shows the parameters for the first line appearance. Although other parameters may be configured, those listed are the minimum required for successful registration of the phone with the Converged Communications Server.
Unregistered For basic feature set operation, the dial plan can be specified using: 1. Address maps in the Avaya Converged Communications Server (see Section 5.2.1, and Reference ). They control how Avaya Converged Communications Server routes a call, based on the number dialed.

In addition to the steps outlined in Section 4, the following additional administration steps are required to support the extended feature set on the Cisco 7940/7960 SIP telephones: 1. On Communication Manager, define stations corresponding to those specified on the...
It is recommended that a uniform format for these extensions be used as shown (e.g., all beginning with 70xxx), so that the definition of the address map in the Avaya Converged Communications Server later (Section 5.2) will be as simple as possible.
Note: For Outboard Proxy SIP configuration, the station extension must be different than that administered for the Avaya Converged Communications Server. The Communication Manager extension will be the “public” extension that users associate with their phones. The Avaya Converged Communications Server extension will be a “private” extension that is used in the system configuration, but is not dialed by users.
Table 5 correlates the FNE to required function button names. For the example, the Idle Appearance Select requires call-appr. The maximum number of call-appr buttons should match that of the Cisco phone type (two for 7940, six for 7960). add station 24071...
To configure support for the Outboard Proxy SIP features supported by Communication Manager on an Avaya Media Server, Media Server maps are defined using the Media Servers link. In this case, the contact information is automatically generated and dialed numbers matching the map specification cause the call to be routed to the associated Media Server.
Outboard Proxy SIP support of the telephones, the extended feature set is available to 7940/7960 users. To dial a number, lift the receiver (or press Speaker) and dial any number using the dial plan centrally administered in Communication Manager on the Avaya Media Server.
7940, which has two. The following steps describe how to configure the 7960 set with Outboard Proxy SIP speed dial buttons. They also apply to the 7940, although only one speed dial button is available in this case. General configuration information can be found in Reference .
The following steps can be used to verify and/or troubleshoot installations in the field. 1. After rebooting the 7940/7960 telephone, use the settings button at the phone to verify that the parameters set in the default (proxy server address and port number, register with proxy, etc.) and phone-specific (User ID, Password, etc.) configuration files have been...
5. Press the messages button and verify that the voice messaging system is called. 7. Conclusion These Application Notes have described the administration steps required to use Cisco 7940 and 7960 SIP telephones with the Avaya Converged Communications Server and Communication Manager.
