Hi Experts,
I have a Cisco UCM version 7.0 and my system is connected to a AVAYA system via SIP trunk. I have a question about a request that I just receive from the AVAYA VOIP engineer requesting for me to change the Cisco VOICE traffic to use UDP port 52048 – 53339 to match his side.

Questions:
What is the impact to my Cisco UCM or is this even recommended?
What ports Cisco UCM uses for VOIP traffic?  Is it RTP 16384 – 32767?

Any documentation that you can share about the implication to the Cisco UCM when using different port range will be great…

Cant change.

The RFC doesn't specify which ports are to be used, only that RTP uses even nubmers, RTCP odd numbers.

By the way, if you are curious about why Cisco chose 16000 to 32000, its because its the Unix kernel port range.

db21,

Callmanager 7.1.5 allows you to change the RTP port numbers. Go to Device > Device Settings > Sip Profile and change the "Start Media Port" / "Stop Media Port" fields. Then assign this profile to your SIP trunk.
