Voice over IP (VoIP) is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet. Other terms commonly associated with VoIP are IP telephony, Internet telephony, broadband telephony, and broadband phone service. The term specifically refers to the provisioning of communications services (voice, fax, SMS, voice-messaging) over the public Internet, rather than via the public switched telephone network (PSTN).  Examples of the VoIP protocols are H.323, Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP), Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), H.248 (also known as Media Gateway Control (Megaco)), Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP), Real-time Transport Control Protocol (RTCP), Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP), Session Description Protocol (SDP), and Inter-Asterisk eXchange (IAX).

While getting ready to move a CUCM cluster I was reminded the route lists associate with a particular CM Group and register to a member of that group. But the question: Why is that necessary?

I have a bit of a challenge with a site-to-site VOIP situation.
We are using a Avaya system - PBX hosted on-site - in a 5 location business. They use a SIP trunk provider outbound and that's not a problem. But they also use the system as a sort of "intercom" to communicate between the sites. To make it work, we have setup VPN over the public internet in a "star" pattern, with one of the sites acting as the "hub" - the others as the "spokes". Traffic flows between the sites through the hub, or from the sites TO the hub, depending on who is being called.

Call quality is the problem. Choppy, dropouts or bad voice quality happen but NOT consistently. Just occasionally enough to be a pain. The business uses the "intercom" feature quite frequently, it's becoming a problem.

We use SonicWALL TZ300's at the spokes and a TZ400 at the "hub". We have QoS and Bandwidth management configured and that has helped. We have spoken to Sonic About it and they have put their 2 cents in.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Video I saw trending today showcases what happens when an IRS phone scammer, attempts to scam the wrong programmer. Said programmer decides to write a call flooding script to prevent the scammers from receiving call-backs. As the frustration ensues he records their responses to the phone calls.

The language eventually becomes nsfw, you've been warned.

We have an old Castelle Faxpress 5000 box which currently supports about 40 incoming fax numbers and forwards them to Exchange server. I looked into porting all numbers to a cloud service, but this would cost in the range of $12 per user per month. I was wondering if there are any fax server products out there like Faxpress which would be less expensive.
The Faxpress is out of support and the company no longer exists.
We have Exchange 2013, about 40 fax numbers, onsite AVAYA VOIP phone system.

Does anyone know why the switch slows down so much that the VOIP starts to have Jitter and after a reboot it works fine for a week again. The switch runs the PC's through the Phones. There are no VLAN's programmed at the moment. The switch is stock standard. Are there any settings I can change?

Cisco Unity Express - Version 8.6.7
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express - 15.6(3)  / CME 11.5

Internal extension to extension calls will transfer to voicemail fine.

Calls from outside that go to voicemail get the message - "There is no mailbox associated with this extension, wait while I transfer your call."  Then it goes to a busy signal.

If the extension is forwarded to another extension internally, calls from both inside and outside will transfer to the other extension.

If the extension is forwarded to an outside number (we dial 9 to get out and enter it into the number to forward to) calls from outside will be transferred to the outside number.  Calls from inside get a busy signal.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello all,

I have some Win 2012 3cx v15 phone systems and was having trouble with apple push notifications for calls to remote devices.  I've determined it to be a TLS issue.  I had used IIS Crypto to remove the less secure SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0 and 1.1, leaving just TLS 1.2 and more secure ciphers.  This breaks apple push notifications from the 3cx server/software.  I put back TLS 1.1, no luck.  Put back TLS 1.0, now push notifications work.  I find it odd that I should still need 1.0 enabled on the server.  

Is apple push still using that protocol and not 1.1 or 1.2, or might there be something else going on here.

I'm by no means familiar with protocols/ciphers, just determined what fixes the problem.

Hello,

we have two sites with skype for business deployed.

between the sites we have 2 subnets enabled via a tunnel.

we've discovered that although calls outbound via either site work calls between the sites don't connect.

looking at snooper logs we see that this makes sense by design as the primary site has a 'voip' subnet for the cx600 phones. when a call is made outwards between the sites and the user attempts to answer the call on the cx600 phones the call would fail.

when a call is made by either site outwards to the pstn calls flow as expected.

setting up the sites in the sfb admin portal i've setup the subnets which each site has.


based on my understanding media bypass should only work when the bypass site ID is the same. if it is not it should establish the call via the mediation gateway.

am i correct in this assumption?

i know i can add the non routable voip phone subnet to the tunnel however i'd rather not.

I am trying to setup our client side pc's to use the pass-through Ethernet port on our Avaya 1608-i phones. I am having an issue that I can only connect one device to the port on the Cisco switch at a time. If I plug the phone in to the switch it works and if I plug the PC in to the switch that will work fine. If I use the pass-though port on the phone then only either the phone or the pc will pick up an IP.

We are not using a separate Vlan for VoIP.

is there a setting on the switch that I am missing?

Hi, really struggling with dialplans for Snom 300 IP phone at the moment and would appreciate some help.

I need to set a Snom 300 to only allow outbound calls which begin with a "7" but then to drop the lead digit...  Sounds weird I know, but it's the only way I can think of to restrict outbound calling to the speed-dial list which the users will not be able to view, but able to call.

So the plan is that 01234 567890 (for example) is in the speed dial list as 701234 567890, for the phone to then recognise this as an allowed number but drop the lead 7 so that it is able to be dialled.

I can't change anything in the PBX as we are using a hosted solution - already spoken to them and they can't / won't help, saying it needs to be done at handset level.

I hope that makes sense and that someone can help me out! Thanks in advance. :-)

Hello,

We are going through a brand new install of Cisco VOIP with a BE6000 system.  One of the features we need is the Single Inbox Reach function where a voicemail is left, and an impersonation account in AD/Exchange allows the voicemail to be transferred to the users email as an attached .wav file.  

From our Cisco Unity server the traffic is leaving the box on port 443 (verified via Wireshark).  But the traffic never appears to hit anything.  We don't get rejections or failure notices.  The Unity server just tries to resend when there is no response from any device.

I have taken a laptop from our VOIP network and talked directly through telnet to our Exchange server.  So I know the path is correct.
Windows Firewall is turned off on Exchange, and I know port 443 works because of all our OWA client access.  

We are at a loss here.  Any thoughts on something I might be overlooking.   Cisco TAC tested and said the Unity box is transmitting as expected on port 443.   Microsoft tech support verified our Impersonation roles are correct with EWS Editor.  

We have a Cisco ASA Firewall in the mix but when trying to filter and view traffic from our Unity server we see nothing, as expected since the switch that the  Unity server is connected to has a direct uplink to our switch with our Exchange Server on it.

This is a pretty vanilla installation for a small company.

Thanks
Matthew

I am hoping to set up call forwarding on our Samsung officeserv

I have looked at all the call forwarding options, 60? but they do not work.  

I note that this method will not override any pre-set forward settings nor will it work for groups.

Does anyone have any idea on how to make sure these things are not happening so call forwarding works?

Hello,

We have an On-prem shoretel system configured running the director version 18.xx.  We also have three shoretel switches and use both softphones and deskphones.

Shoretel Switches:
SG-T1k  
SG-220T1A
SG-90

Softphone:
Ran through Communicator on PC's

HardPhones:
Shoretel IP230

Edge Firewall:
Fortigate 100D

T1 Provider:
Level3

New WAN provider:
CenturyLink Fiber

# of Users:
20-30

Currently, our phones use a dedicated T1 connection through level3.  This T1 line connects directly to the SG-T1K.  Due to increasingly high costs, we are considering getting rid of the dedicated T1 line with level3 and routing our shoretel phones through our Primary WAN(century link fiber).  The fiber is connected to our Fortigate 100D edge router.  I have worked with shoretel for several years but I have not had to made a change like this before.  

My question is, can we accomplish this with our existing equipment(phones, switches, etc)?  If we can, how do i implement the changes.  If we can not, what needs to change or be upgraded to facilitate this change?

Thank you everyone in advance for any help that you may be able to offer.

I need to move a call manager which is a VM on a UCS C200. Can you please advise
on the proper shutdown procedure and the turn-up? It will retain IP address etc.
Just need to make sure I don't corrupt anything. I see a shutdown procedure
below for CIMC and using the power button. But should I also ssh to Call Manager
first and shut there as well? Thank you.

Several weeks ago I was surprised to get a Skype call from a relative who was traveling overseas. My surprise was not due to the fact that she was calling, but that Skype was running. I had not started Skype, nor have I ever configured Skype to start automatically at system startup! I thought it was just an anomaly, only to discover several weeks and at least as many reboots later that Skype was still indicating that I was online!!? When I check the usual places (the taskbar, etc.) I am not finding any indications that Skype is running. When I checked the services list, the only thing I am saying is the Skype updater. Does anyone have an idea what the heck is going on? I do not want Skype running unless I expressly permit it!!
