Overview
Overview
MCD provides businesses of all sizes with a highly scalable, feature-rich communications
system. It’s designed to meet the needs of businesses from 5 to 65,000 users whether they
are single-site deployments or multi-site networks that span many countries.
Platforms
MCD runs on the following hardware platforms:
•
Mitel 3300 ICP controllers, including MXe, MXe Server, CX and CXi
•
Sun Microsystems® servers (as a component of Mitel® Communications Suite)
Modular Platform Design Provides Scalability and Flexibility
Whether deployed on the 3300 ICP or a Sun server as part of MCS, MCD has a modular and
scalable system design that allows customers to invest in a hardware platform to meet their
current requirements and then increase the size of the system as their business expands. The
core call control components are the same regardless of the hardware platform, and
functionality, such as trunk support, is provided through field-installed modules. This hardware
commonality ensures that as a business grows the majority of a customer’s investment is
protected when a controller chassis is upgraded.
About the 3300 ICP
The 3300 ICP can be deployed to support a broad spectrum of site configurations. For example,
a highly centralized solution can be implemented at the head office with the call control and IP
telephony services delivered over wide-area-network connections to small branch offices.
Larger branch offices can be configured with a main controller on site to provide local support.
Finally, an entire network of controllers can be clustered to function as one large system.

Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Figure 1: 3300 ICP Site Configuration
For smaller organizations, Mitel delivers a system which incorporates a powered Ethernet
switch and an embedded processing card that hosts applications such as Teleworker, Mobile
Extension and Live Business Gateway, essentially delivering all the voice communications
capabilities a small business needs in a single chassis. For example, a CX Controller can
support a 40-person business with embedded voicemail and auto attendant, as well as house
a connection to the public network and host applications like Teleworker – all from a single
chassis.
For large organizations or multi-site deployments, up to 999 controllers can be deployed in a
cluster to deliver extensive features, services, and applications. These controllers use a
peer-to-peer communication protocol to ensure management and administration data is shared
between systems thus ensuring consistency of features and applications for the users without
incurring high management costs.
On large sites, key functionality is typically hosted by dedicated “task-specific” controllers with
all users connected over an IP network; for example a large organization might have
4
•
4000 users on an MXe Server (primary) with a backup MXe Controller to provide resilient
support
•
an MXe Controller acting as a trunking gateway with connections to the traditional telephone
network for outside access, and
•
a dedicated NuPoint Messenger Server for voicemail, automated attendant, and unified
messaging.
Overview
Networking With Industry-Standard Protocols
Use of open standards, such as SIP, interconnects next generation network services and
applications to support new desktop devices. Customer can be assured that their investment
in a Mitel solution will be developed and expanded into the future because the solution is not
limited by proprietary protocols. And while our focus is to deliver a complete communications
solution that meets the needs of today with potential to deliver more in the future, our solution
also supports an extensive list of legacy protocols and devices.
Reliability Through Redundancy and Resiliency
For mission-critical environments, you can provision the 3300 ICP with hardware redundancy
and resiliency. Resiliency automatically transfers support for an IP phone to an alternate
controller in the event that the phone cannot communicate with its primary controller. By taking
advantage of IP-networking, resiliency provides an extremely flexible solution to enhance
system reliability. It uses resources that are spread across the network to optimize hardware
resources and ensure that there is no single point-of-failure.
Mitel’s resiliency solution uses Spanning Tree Protocol and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol
(STP/RSTP). These protocols allow physical path redundancy between Ethernet switches.
They place redundant network paths into standby mode by blocking traffic on redundant ports.
Then, if a currently active network path fails due to a Bridge/Switch failure or a network cabling
failure, STP/RSTP enables a standby network path and network connectivity is restored.
About Mitel Communications Suite for Sun Servers
Mitel Communications Suite allows Mitel’s Mitel Communications Director software to reside
on Sun Microsystems® servers along with other Mitel voice applications. This solution
preserves the functionality and features of the traditional 3300 ICP as well as the other
embedded applications and allows organizations to carry voice-based solutions on a Sun data
infrastructure. It is the perfect solution for all businesses looking to reduce install times; to get

Overview
Administrators can also enable or disable system settings across the entire system or network.
Although the features and system settings are configurable to allow maximum flexibility, usable
default settings minimize configuration requirements.
Migration Made Easy
Because of Mitel’s long history in voice communications, we continue to support a host of
protocols which facilitate a smooth migration to Voice over IP support – whether your legacy
PBX is from Mitel or another supplier.
You can deploy the 3300 ICP as a network gateway to link multiple traditional PBX’s together
over a WAN connection, eliminating costly private circuits. Or, you can deploy it as an
applications gateway that delivers critical functionality to a defined user community without
disrupting the broader organization. These deployment models allow organizations to migrate
at their own pace, when it suits their needs.

3300 ICP System Description
3300 ICP System Description
This chapter describes the 3300 ICP system functionality. For details on system configurations,
refer to the Engineering Guidelines. For detailed descriptions of the hardware components,
refer to the Hardware Technical Reference Manual.
3300 ICP System Architecture
The 3300 ICP delivers sophisticated call management applications and desktop solutions for
businesses. Mitel delivers a highly scalable, resilient, robust call control that fully utilizes the
power of IP while fully supporting the traditional TDM based telephony for legacy devices and
PSTN connectivity.
Mitel’s architecture uses the IP network to connect IP telephony devices. It also switches calls
between traditional telephone devices:
•
For IP telephony, it provides call setup, tear down, and signaling between Ethernet IP
connected telephones.
•
For traditional telephony, such as POTS and PSTN trunks, it handles calls via a conventional
TDM circuit-switched subsystem.
This ability to use two different switching techniques simultaneously means that:
•
All traffic is switched with minimum conversion between packet and traditional telephony
to provide optimum voice quality in all call scenarios.
•
Embedded gateway functionality is only required between the IP and non-IP networks
optimizing the use of system resources.
•
Migration from traditional PBX to IP telephony is seamless and efficient

MXe Server
The MXe Server is purely a call control server for IP devices. It supports up to 5,000 IP devices
and connects over the LAN/WAN to other 3300 ICP controllers to access digital trunks and
analog devices. The MXe Server uses the same chassis and many of the same components
as the MXe Controller, but it includes an additional application processor card (APC). The MXe
Server is shipped with a RAID controller, dual hard drives, and dual power supplies.
The MXe Server provides the same call processing features and applications as the other
controllers. However, the MXe Server runs with the Mitel Communications Director software.
The Mitel Communications Director software is built on the Linux® operating system and runs
on the additional application processor card.
The MXe Server supports:
•
up to 5000 IP or SIP devices
•
hardware redundancy as a standard feature — the MXe Server ships with a RAID controller,
two hard disks, and redundant AC power supplies and cooling fans.
Note: Though the MXE Server does not directly support ONS devices or trunks, it can,
however, connect to other 3300 ICPs that can provide ONS & Trunk connectivity.
The MXe Server provides:
•
expansion slots for up to two optional Quad DSP or octal DSP II MMCs
•

optical signals received over a fiber optic cable to electrical signals
•
electrical to optical signals for transmission over the cable.
The Dual FIM module allows you to connect
•
NSUs to the MXe Controller and AX Controller
•
Peripheral Cabinets to the MXe Controller (the AX Controllers do not support Peripheral
Cabinets).
Each Dual FIM allows you to connect up to two NSUs or two Peripheral Cabinets to the
controller. The NSUs or Peripheral Cabinets connect to the controllers via fiber optic cabling.
The fiber optic cabling allows units or cabinets to be located up to 14 km from the controller.
Note: The CX/CX(i) Controllers and the MXe Server do not support Dual FIMs or NSUs.
Universal Network Services Unit
The Universal NSU provides T1 or E1 connectivity and supports up to two T1 or E1 links per
unit. The protocols supported by the T1 interfaces are
22
•
T1 CAS - Digital E&M, Digital CO, Digital DID
•
T1 CCS - Primary Rate ISDN (4ESS, DMS 100, DMS 250, NI-2, NI-2-5ESS, NI-2-GTD5,
IDA-P), XNET over PRI, QSIG, and MSDN/DPNSS.
3300 ICP System Description
The protocols supported by the E1 interface are:
•
Q.Sig, Euro ISDN, XNET over PRI, DASS II, and MSDN/DPNSS
Note: Both interfaces must be either T1 or E1 and both must be T1 CAS or DPNSS or
DASSII or PRI/QSIG. For T1/D4 and PRI/QSIG, you can mix the variants on each
interface. For example, on T1/D4 you can mix the types on each interface (DID, CO,
E&M) and for PRI/QSIG you can run different protocols for the signalling types.
The Universal NSU connects to a 3300 ICP Controller through a fiber cable. Additional digital
trunk capacity can be added to the 3300 ICP by chaining two NSUs together via the Copper
Interface Module (CIM) connection, on the back of the NSU.
Figure 9: Universal Network Services Unit
R2 Network Services Unit
R2 is a protocol converter that allows the R2 NSU to access an R2 National Public Switched
Telephone Network (PSTN) using MF-R2 digital trunk signaling. The 3300 Controller also
receives and processes Calling Line Identification (CLI) and allows the information to be
displayed on the user's telephone display screen.
The R2 NSU supports the CCITT Blue Book, Volume VI, Fascicle VI.4, Specifications of
Signaling System R2, Recommendations Q.440 to Q.490 (with the exception of Echo
Suppression (Q.479), Test Calls (Q.490) and international signals).
The R2 NSU converts the following:
•
Incoming MF-R2 signals from the PSTN into Digital Private Network Signaling System
(DPNSS) signals for the system
•
Outgoing DPNSS signals from the system into MF-R2 signals for the PSTN.

Dual T1/E1 Framer Module
The Dual T1/E1 Framer module is a digital trunk interface that supports the direct connection
of ISDN-PRI, T1/D4, QSIG, MSDN/DPNSS, and IDA-P trunks to the controller. This module
has two ports supporting two digital links. Each port can support a different protocol.
T1 interfaces (1.544 Mbits/sec) support:
•
ISDN PRI and QSIG links composed of 23 B-channels (bearer channels) for voice or data
plus one D-channel (data channel) for signaling
•
T1/D4 links composed of 24 B-channels
•
IDA-P.
E1 interfaces (2.048Mbits/sec) support ISDN PRI and QSIG links composed of 30 B-channels
plus one D-channel.
Note: The D-channel backup, NFAS, and min/max capability features are not supported
for embedded ISDN PRI links.
Note: The CX/CXi Controller and MXe Server do not support the Dual T1/E1 Module.
T1/E1 Combo Module
The T1/E1 Combo Module combines trunk support, DSP functionality, and resiliency support
in a single module. T1/E1 trunk resiliency is designed for businesses where resilience is critical,
but where only a single digital link to the PSTN is required. If a site's primary controller fails,
this feature automatically transfers the support for the T1/E1 trunk from the T1/E1 Combo
Module in the primary controller to a T1/E1 Module in the secondary controller.
The digital trunk port can be configured as a T1 interface (1.544 Mbps) that provides 24
B-channels for T1/D4 or an E1 interface (2.0 Mbps) that provides 30 B-channels for E1. The
DSP provides resources for voice echo cancellation. Embedded PRI is available for the 3300
ICP via the T1/E1 module.
Quad Basic Rate Interface (BRI) Framer Module
The Quad Basic Rate Interface (BRI) Framer Module is a digital trunk interface that supports
the direct connection of BRI trunks to the controller eliminating the need for a BRI NSU.
The BRI Framer Module has four ports supporting four digital links. Each port may be configured
as either of the following:
•
T (trunk) interface for links from a BRI Central Office.
•
S (subscriber) interface for connecting up to eight BRI devices to the controller.
Note: S interfaces support only basic call features such as calling number display for
BRI devices. BRI call handling such as Hold or Transfer is not supported. BRI devices
are not line powered from the Quad BRI Framer. The U interfaces are not supported.
The Quad BRI Framer is supported in Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Australia.

support the control cards and the FIM or CIM carrier cards. The bays are connected to a 3300
ICP using FIM or CIM cables.
Note: SX-200 Bays are supported by MXe controllers only.
Note: SX-200 Bays are not supported in Europe.
SX-200 Peripheral Cards
The SX-200 Bay cabinet consists of Peripheral Interface Cards. The peripheral interface cards
connect peripheral devices (such as SUPERSET™ telephones) to the system. They are located
in slots 1 through 8. They include
•
Digital Line Card
•
On-Premise (ONS) Line Card
•
Off-Premise (OPS) Line Card.
Each ONS port requires an ONS licence on the 3300 ICP, which is counted against the 3300
ICP software device limits.
Digital Network Interface Line Card
The Digital Network Interface (DNI) line card provides an interface from the system to Mitel
SUPERSET telephones and SUPERCONSOLE 1000 attendant consoles.
Note: Only 4000-series SUPERSET telephones are supported.
The DNI line card supports voice/data transmission at the rate of 128 kb/s (64 kb/s on each of
two voice channels) and 16 kb/s on one signaling channel over a loop length of up to 3280 ft
(1000 meters), using 24 - 26 AWG wire (25 - 27 IWG). The DNI line card provides full duplex
digital transmission of both voice and data.
ONS/CLASS Line Card (North America Only)
The ONS (On-Premise)/CLASS (Custom Local Area Signaling Service) line card has 12 circuits
that connect up to 12 standard telephones with line loop resistance, usually not exceeding 600
ohms including the telephone. As such, the card is used to connect internal telephone
extensions close to the system. It also supports modems and fax machines. These cards install
in any peripheral interface card slot and are hot-swappable.
25
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
OPS Line Card (North America Only)
The OPS Line Card contains six off-premises line circuits. An Off-Premises (OPS) line circuit
is used where the line goes outside the building that houses the PBX and the line may be
exposed to extraneous high voltages or induced currents.
Peripheral Interface Module Carrier Card
The Peripheral Interface Module Carrier Card (PIMCC) holds a FIM II or CIM to provide the
fiber or copper interface between a peripheral cabinet and the 3300 ICP. The FIM II and CIM
interface modules on the BCC III also provide the connectivity needed to the 3300 ICP, making
the PIMCC dispensable.
The Peripheral Interface Module Carrier card plugs into slot 12 of an SX-200 cabinet.
System Resources: Processors, Cards, and Modules
This section describes the cards and modules that support the system. To meet site
requirements, you may need to add additional system resources to the controller. When
planning a site, refer to the Configuration Tables in the Engineering Guidelines to determine if
additional system resources, such as compression, echo cancellation, or Ethernet-to-TDM
(E2T) channels are required.
Processors (E2T/RTC)
The CX/CX(i), AX, and standard MXe Controllers use a single processor to perform the Real
Time Controller (RTC) functions and the Ethernet-to-TDM (E2T) functions. The expanded MXe
Controller and MXe Server have separate processors for these functions.
The E2T converts voice streaming between Internet Protocol and Time Division Multiplexing
(TDM) signals. The RTC runs the call control for the controller and acts as a gateway for the
IP signals/packets.
Digital Signal Processor Modules
The Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Modules perform basic telephony and compression
functions including:
•
Conferencing
•
Voice Mail playout and recording
•
Call Progression tone generation and detection
•
Auto-attendant support
•
G.729a compression (for IP trunking and wireless phones)
•
FAX over IP (T.38) and additional G.729a compression (provided by the high-density
DSP II MMC)
The system allocates DSPs for
26
3300 ICP System Description
•
conferencing (at startup)
•
voice mail depending on the number of ports programmed in the customer database (at
startup)
•
tone generation and detection as required by traffic conditions (on a per call basis).
•
auto-attendant features.
You can add additional DSP resources to a controller by adding a Quad DSP module, a Dual
DSP Module, or a DSP II Module. The Dual DSP module is only available for CX/CXi systems.
Instructions on how to calculate system DSP requirements are provided in the 3300 ICP
Technician’s Handbook.
Echo Cancellation Module
The Echo Canceller (EC) module provides echo cancellation on E2T channels. Each
bi-directional E2T channel requires one bi-directional EC channel. The EC module provides
128 EC channels.
Applications Support
Application Processor Card - MXe Server
The Application Processor Card (APC-MXe) is an embedded PC card that is standard in the
MXe Server. It runs the Mitel Communications Director call control software. In the MXe Server,
the RTC performs the role of Media Server, with the APC-MXe performing call control functions.
The Mitel Communications Director software and the controller software are pre-installed on
the hard drives that are shipped with the MXe Server.
Application Processor Card - CX(i)
The APC-CX(i) is an optional card that you can install in the CX or CXi controller. The APC-CX(i)
hosts the Mitel Standard Linux (MSL) Server software that supports applications such as:
•
Teleworker Solution - A secure teleworking solution for remote and home-based employees. This solution is supported on standard Mitel IP Phones.
•
Mobile Extension - Enables users to "twin" their desk phone to another internal or external
phone such as a cell phone.
•

27
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Firewall (CXi, MXe and MXe Server only)
For security, the CXi and MXe can function as a firewall, dropping or rejecting unknown packets,
allowing or disallowing IPSec and PPTP pass-through, and performing many-to-one NAT (IP
masquerading).
By default, all inbound traffic is blocked by the firewall with the exception of packets for
establishing PPTP VPN tunnels and ICMP requests to the IP address of the WAN interface.

3300 ICP Network Support
3300 ICP Network Support
Voice Networking
Lines
The 3300 ICP supports the following internal voice connections:
•
Ethernet connections are provided on the 3300 ICPs to connect the system to the customer's Ethernet LAN. IP phones communicate with the 3300 ICP over the Ethernet LAN.
•
On-Premises (ONS) lines are for industry-standard DTMF telephones. These lines are
supported by the ONSp line card in the ASU II and the AX Controller. ONSp card variants
have "protected" ports that protect the circuitry against lightning and surges. ONS ports are
also available on the Analog Main Board (AMB), or Analog Option Board (AOB).
Note: Pulse and rotary dial telephones are not supported.
•
Digital Network Interface (DNI) lines provide an interface for Mitel legacy digital telephones
and consoles. These lines are supported by the DNI Line card connected into the SX-200
Bay.
•
On the client side, SIP phones are starting to proliferate across the full spectrum of telephony
vendors.
Trunks
The system can connect to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) or to private
networks over digital and analog trunks. The following digital links are supported:
•
DS1 Links - The system supports the following protocols: D4, Q.Sig, MSDN/DPNSS, Primary Rate ISDN (DM-250, DMS-100, Bellcore National ISDN, 4ESS, NI-2, 5ESS NI2), and
XNET over PRI protocols. The system connects to DS1 links through the T1/E1 Modules
or Universal NSU.
•
E1 Links - The system supports DASS II, MSDN/DPNSS, Q.Sig, Primary Rate ISDN (Euro
ISDN (CTR4)), and XNET over PRI protocols. The system connects to E1 links through the
T1/E1 Modules or Universal NSU.
•
R2 Links - The system supports the CCITT Blue Book, Volume VI, Fascicle VI.4, Specifications of the Signaling System R2, and Recommendations Q.440 to Q.490 (with the
exception of Echo Suppression (Q.479), Test Calls (Q.490) and international signals). The
system connects to R2 links through the R2 NSU. Note that many countries use R2 signaling
but do not adhere to the CCITT recommendations in their entirety. The 3300 ICP is completely flexible and supports regional variations of the R2 protocol. Line signaling, tone
interpretation, and timing parameters for the converter can be adapted to suit any national
or regional requirement. For example:
-
Line signaling features allow you to program up to four bits to define the incoming and
outgoing patterns for line signals such as Idle and Answer
-
Register signaling features allow you to program the type of address signaling
29
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
termination (signaled or timed) and whether signaling should be fully-compelled or
semi-compelled. These features allow the individual definition of each register
signaling tone.
•
PRI Links - The system supports DM-250, DMS-100, Bellcore National ISDN, 4ESS, NI-2,
5ESS NI2, NI13, Euro ISDN (CTR4) protocols, and IDA-P PRI protocol used in Hong Kong.
The system connects to PRI links through the T1/E1 Modules or Universal NSU.
•
BRI Links - The system supports Euro ISDN 2B + D, Basic Rate Interface, or the North
American ISDN-1 and ISDN-2 protocols. The system connects to BRI links through BRI
NSUs or through Quad BRI Framer modules:
•
-
The BRI NSU provides connectivity for Basic Rate ISDN (BRI) transport of both data
and voice traffic. This unit is available only in the North American variant, which
supports U-Interface (user-side interface).
-
The Quad BRI Framer module supports the S-Interface for the European market. This
module is also supported in North America where the S-Interface is available.
SIP Trunks - Allow the 3300 ICP to connect to the Service Provider through the SIP protocol
over the IP network. Service Providers offer SIP trunks that provide flexible and cost-effective WAN solutions for the 3300 ICP. The SIP Trunking solution provides basic feature
functionality, billing capability, Emergency Services support, FAX support, and more.
The following analog trunks are supported:
•
Analog CO trunks - Loop start (LS) ports on the ASU II can be used to interface analog
CO trunks with the system.
-
LS CLASS trunks are available on the Analog Main Board, Analog Option Board, ASU
II, and AX Controller line cards.
IP Networking
IP Networking provides customers with an option for networking systems together. Instead of
leasing dedicated voice circuits, customers can route voice traffic over the existing LAN/WAN
infrastructure. Mitel’s implementation of IP Networking can use
•
a point-to-point topology to optimize network resources, or
•
a fully meshed topology to maximize inter connectivity between systems.
Figure 11: IP Networking - Point to Point Topology
30
3300 ICP Network Support
Figure 12: IP Networking - Fully Meshed Topology
IP Networking supports the MSDN/DPNSS protocols over the IP infrastructure. Controllers can
be clustered in a single location to provide greater resiliency than a single controller operating
autonomously. Controllers that are geographically separated can be seamlessly networked to
share information and services in a transparent and cost efficient manner. IP Networking can
be used as the primary communication between controllers or as a backup to TDM networking.
A 3300 ICP with IP Networking enabled can be configured to act as an IP Networking gateway
for SX-2000 and SX-200® PBXs, or third-party PBXs.
Figure 13: 3300 ICP as Trunking Gateway for PBXs
The IP Networking feature supports G.711 and G.729a encoding. Connections with up to 999
other network nodes are supported. A total of 2000 IP network connections are supported from
any one node and up to 200 connections can be defined between any two nodes. IP Networking
is enabled via the IP Networking License. One license is required per controller in the network.
SIP Trunking
To manage costs within an organization, many businesses are considering replacing their
traditional PSTN connections with new SIP services deployed by service providers. Mitel
expects to see a proliferation of these services in the future and SIP trunking has the ability to
support these new network services.
31
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
The 3300 ICP connects to the service provider’s network using the SIP protocol over the IP
network. The SIP Trunking solution provides basic calling features, billing capability, Emergency
Services support, FAX support, and more.
Figure 14: SIP Trunking
9-1-1
SIP Trunking supports 9-1-1 emergency service. The SIP service provider can be chosen as
the outgoing emergency route.Caller’s Emergency Service Identification (CESID) information
must also be programmed.
DNS Support
Communication between SIP Service Providers and the 3300 ICP can be configured to use
either Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDN) or IP Addresses.
Configurable Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) Packetization
3300 administrators can configure the voice stream packet rate for SIP trunks to their service
provider’s, choosing a rate between 10ms to 80ms (with 10ms increments). IP sets supporting
this feature include the 5302, 5304, 5212, 5224, 5235, 5312, 5324, 5330, 5340,
Billing and SMDR
The Service Provider bills calls based on the peer connection to the 3300 ICP. The 3300 ICP
records are created with a special SMDR tag entered in the SIP Peer Profile form. An SMDR
tag can be enabled for outgoing and incoming calls.
32
3300 ICP Network Support
Malicious Call Trace
For incoming SIP calls that are tagged for Malicious Call, the 3300 records the Media IP address
and port used remotely. As well, the SIP signalling information is captured. This information
cannot be sent to the SIP Service Provider, but the information is recorded if needed.
Note: Malicious Call SMDR records are logged on the 3300 ICP. SIP endpoints cannot
invoke Malicious Call Trace, but it is recommended that SMDR be enabled for SIP devices
and gateways.
FAX Support
You can configure the 3300 ICP network to allow facsimile to be sent over the IP network using
G.711 pass-through or IP network using FAX Relay (T.38).
Real-time, Group 3 facsimile (FAX) communication over IP networks using FAX Relay (T.38
standard protocol) allows you to transmit and receive facsimile over IP trunks between FAX
machines on 3300 ICP (Release 9.0 or later) systems.
FAX Over IP Using T.38 FoIP
FAX Relay (T.38) is the preferred method because the quality and performance of FAX
transmission is superior to that of the G.711 pass though method, especially over WAN links.
The LAN and WAN do not have to be engineered specifically to support this method of FAX
transmission.
The following diagram illustrates four different ways that FAX Relay (T.38) can be employed
to support fax transmission:
•
FAX machine connected to a T.38 protocol enabled 3300 ICP
•
FAX call transferred by 3300 ICP to a T.38 protocol enabled gateway
•
FAX machine connected directly to a T.38 protocol enabled gateway
•
Internet Aware FAX (IAF) machine with built in T.38 gateway functionality
33
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Figure 15: FAX Relay (T.38)
FAX Over IP Network Using G.711 Pass-Through
This method uses T.30 protocol with G.711 pass through to send FAX over IP trunks using the
LAN and WAN. The 3300 ICP systems in the network must be running Release 7.0 or later.
Figure 16: G.711 Pass Through.
This method has the following advantages:
•
allows you to send faxes between 3300 ICP systems over the IP network
•
reduces the cost of sending long-distance faxes because the data is sent over the IP network
and not the PSTN
However, this method has the following disadvantages:
•
34
LAN and WAN must be engineered to meet the LAN quality guidelines specified in the 3300
ICP Engineering Guidelines.
3300 ICP Network Support
•
Voice packets carrying fax on the network cannot be compressed.
•
Quality and performance of fax transmission using G.711 pass through is inferior to the
quality and performance provided by FAX Relay (T.38) protocol, especially over WAN links
because the likelihood of experiencing network issues is higher.
Compression
Optimization of bandwidth is a key requirement in a VoIP system. In order to meet this
requirement, the 3300 ICP supports G.729a voice compression. G.729a compression reduces
the bandwidth required for a call from 64 kbps to 8 kbps plus packet overhead. By using voice
compression across the LAN/WAN infrastructure, customers can ensure that they are able to
optimize their bandwidth usage for voice calls. The mechanism for managing this feature is
based on a zone concept. Groups of devices on the 3300 ICP can be placed in a zone so that
calls between zones can be compressed while calls within the same zone are not. Zones can
be defined within a controller's LAN infrastructure, between remote IP devices and the controller
and across the WAN for multiple controller networks.
Most Mitel IP phones inherently support G.729a voice compression. Calls between IP Phones
on the LAN/WAN infrastructure can thus be compressed to G.729a as required. For example,
a call between IP Phone B and IP Phone D (over the LAN or WAN) can be compressed without
system compression resources.
G.729a compression is also supported for calls that have TDM (Digital or Analog) endpoints
that cross the LAN/WAN infrastructure. For example, a call from TDM phone A to IP Phone D
can be compressed using compression resources in controller A to compress the LAN/WAN
segment between Controller A and IP Phone D. The same compression occurs if TDM Phone
A called TDM Phone C over the LAN/WAN, except that in this case compression resources
would be required on both controllers.
35
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Optional compression licenses and DSP modules can be purchased to enable TDM-to-IP
compression on the 3300 ICP.
Figure 17: Voice Compression Between 3300 ICPs
Bandwidth Management
For many customers, one of the key benefits of IP telephony is the opportunity to reduce costs
and ongoing management by eliminating controller hardware at small remote sites. IP phones
can simply be deployed across the WAN (or Internet using the Teleworker Solution) hosted off
a centralized 3300 ICP controller with gateways for remote survivability. When remote sites
are deployed, organizations must ensure that non-voice data has adequate bandwidth and that
quality of voice can be preserved.
Where bandwidth between locations is restricted, you can reduce consumption by applying
compression to the voice calls between IP Phones. Compression reduces the bandwidth
demands of a standard voice call (G.711) by compressing the call using the G.729 codec.
Compression is applied to calls between zones of IP Phones (see Compression on page 35
for details).
In addition, Mitel provides a bandwidth management feature that helps IT managers plan and
justify network capacity expansions. The Bandwidth Management feature allows IT managers
to perform the following tasks at predetermined zone access points (ZAPs) between the zones
in the network:
36
•
Measure and report consumed and available bandwidth
•
Establish maintenance alarms when bandwidth consumption exceeds configured threshold
levels
•
Provide Call Admission Control, that is, reject new calls through a specific bottleneck point
if the consumed bandwidth exceeds the maximum configured levels.

Resiliency
Reliable communication is critical to businesses. Resiliency on the 3300 ICP increases
communications reliability by maintaining calls in progress, handling new incoming and outgoing
calls, and continuing to provide voice mail services in the event of a 3300 ICP or network failure.
The Resiliency solution preserves system functionality in the event of network difficulties by
distributing network intelligence throughout “resilient” clusters that anticipate and pro-actively
mitigate system failure.
By taking advantage of IP-network characteristics of location independence, resiliency provides
an extremely flexible solution to enhance system reliability. By using resources that are spread
across the network, resiliency ensures that there is no single point of failure and that hardware
resource utilization is optimized. Resiliency provides an obvious advantage over many other
competing alternatives where solutions involve costly hardware redundancy for every controller
(see See “Advantages Over Redundancy” on page 39.).
Resiliency is an IP-enabled capability that builds on existing 3300 ICP Voice Clustering
(Portable Directory Number [PDN]), and call-routing principles. Existing clustering techniques
are used to set up a cluster, which is then made resilient through the programming of boundary
nodes, transit nodes, call routing ARS, and resilient devices. Resilient devices within the cluster
are programmed on a primary and secondary controller. Should the primary controller
experience a service outage, support for the resilient devices is automatically transferred to
37
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
the secondary controller. During the transfer of phone service between the primary and
secondary controllers, calls in progress are maintained, ensuring that IP phone users are not
affected by the controller outage. The figure below shows how a site can be configured with
fully resilient devices. Node B is the secondary controller for the phones on Node A, and Node
A is the secondary controller of the phones on Node B. Should either controller experience an
outage, support for the phones is transferred to their respective secondary controller.
Figure 19: Resilient Configuration
As a further example, on a site where there is a MXe Server to support the users and an MXe
Controller to act as a media gateway to the public telephone network, the IP phones can be
supported by the MXe Server (primary controller) and have backup support available from the
media gateway controller (secondary controller). Resiliency is supported for:
38
•
IP Devices - A secondary ICP provides service to phones in the event of a failure on the
primary ICP or in the event of a networking failure between the phone and the primary ICP.
The secondary ICP directs phones to transfer back to the primary ICP once the failure is
corrected.
•
SIP Devices - A secondary ICP provides service to phones in the event of a failure on the
primary ICP or in the event of a networking failure between the SIP endpoint and the primary
ICP. SIP device resiliency is dependent on the particular SIP device deployed. SIP endpoint
resiliency applies to Mitel’s 5300 series dual-mode IP Phones, IP DECT phones and other
commercially available SIP devices.
•
Trunks - A T1/E1 trunk connection can be critical to site operation if it is the only link to the
network. If the primary ICP fails, a relay in the T1/E1 module physically transfers the trunk
termination point to a T1/E1 module on the secondary ICP.
•
Calls - Calls in progress over the IP infrastructure are maintained.
•
Features - Most features are resilient and are available to a user while the user’s phone is
in service on its secondary ICP. Also any programming changes that users make to their
3300 ICP Network Support
phones while the phones are on the secondary controller are automatically updated on the
primary controller after the phone re-homes to the primary controller.
•
Voice mail - Embedded voice mail continues to be provided to a device when it moves to
a secondary ICP during failure.
•
Automatic Call Distribution - ACD Agent calls, agent status (for example, logged in, make
busy, Do Not Disturb, and so forth) and Agent Skill Groups are resilient.
•
Hunt groups- Resiliency is supported for voice, voice mail, or recorder hunt groups. The
3300 ICP supports only voice hunt groups. Currently, only NuPoint Messenger Release
10.0 and later supports voice mail or recorder group hunt group resiliency.
•
Ring groups- Support for ring groups passes to the secondary controller if the primary fails.
The Mitel system management tool, Enterprise Manager, or the System Administration Tool
can be used to provision resilient users and devices on primary and secondary 3300 ICPs.
The OPS Manager Moves, Adds and Changes work form populates 3300 ICP call control forms
with resilient primary and secondary controller information.
Advantages Over Redundancy
Resiliency is less costly and more flexible than a redundant solution because it uses
self-correction techniques that take advantage of the IP-network characteristics of location
independence and network element distribution. While the redundancy model is highly effective
and reliable, it is unnecessarily costly for some customers.
Distributed resilient networks offer the ability to route around failed or otherwise inaccessible
portions of an IP network. This feature provides the following distinct advantages over the
centralized 1+1 hardware requirements of a redundant solution:
•
No single point of failure
•
Lower hardware costs because of the efficient use of existing hardware.
Because any controller in the network can act as a secondary controller, Mitel Resiliency can
be referred to as an "any +1" solution for system reliability. Rather than dedicating expensive,
robust hardware to solving temporary and often infrequent system failures, Mitel Resiliency
makes efficient use of a system’s existing capacity.
In resilient networks, a secondary controller is not limited to acting as a dedicated backup
call-control host. In many cases, the secondary controller can also function as any one of the
following:
•
Full service controller (in a configuration where resiliency support is distributed among
multiple controllers in the network)
•
Group controller
•
Wireless access controller
•
Call center controller
•
Video conference controller
39
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
•
ΙP network gateway
•
PSTN gateway
•
Voice mail server.
Devices that Support Resiliency
The following Mitel IP devices support resiliency:
•
All 5000 series, 5100 series, 5200 series, and 5300 series IP Phones
•
Navigator
•
5550 IP Console
•
5560 IPT
•
IP PKM 12 and IP PKM 48
•
5310 IP Conference Units
•
Teleworker.
Note: Resiliency is an IP solution that does not support ONS, DNIC and older 4000-series
IP Phones.
Resilient clusters can contain pre-4.0 3300 ICPs and Mitel legacy SX-2000 PBXs. These
devices cannot function as secondary controllers, but they can be part of a resilient solution as
boundary nodes and transit nodes.
For detailed information on Resiliency, see the 3300 ICP Resiliency Guidelines.
Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol
Both Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) are supported
on the CXi Controller, MXe Controller, AX Controller, and MXe Server:
•
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) is a Layer 2 Link Level protocol specified by the IEEE
(802.1D) that runs on bridges and switches.
•
Rapid Reconfiguration of Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) is also a Layer 2 Link Level
protocol specified by the IEEE (802.1w) that runs on bridges and switches.
STP and RSTP serve the same purpose. The difference between the two protocols is how
quickly the algorithms converge on a network. RSTP "reconverges" networks faster than STP.
In an Ethernet network that is not using STP/RSTP, multiple active paths between devices are
not allowed since multiple paths will cause network loops.
Network loops will cripple a network because a broadcast or multicast packet sent from Station
“A” to Station “B” will be forwarded by Switch “B” to Station “B” and also back to Switch “A”,
when Switch “A” receives the packet it will then forward the packet back to Switch “B” and the
cycle will repeat for infinity causing a broadcast storm.
40
3300 ICP Network Support
Both STP and RSTP allow for physical path redundancy by placing redundant network paths
into a standby mode by blocking traffic on redundant ports. Should a currently active network
path fail due to a Bridge/Switch failure or a network cabling failure, STP/RSTP will enable the
network path that was previously held in a standby mode and network connectivity will be
restored. The following figure depicts how STP/RSTP breaks a potential network loop by
blocking traffic on one of the ports on Switch “B”.
Figure 20: Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP/STP)
Gateway Solutions
Industry’s acceptance of IP telephony has resulted in vast improvements in cost savings and
in the number and quality of voice-related applications. Many end customers recognize the
benefits of these enhancements but are sensitive about replacing their entire voice
infrastructure just to obtain benefits at a particular site. In such situations, using the 3300 ICP
as a gateway into IP telephony has many advantages.
By integrating a 3300 ICP into an existing third-party PBX, customers retain their previous
investment in communication equipment while also taking advantage of the benefits of a
superior IP telephony solution. The 3300 ICP can connect to the third-party PBX using a variety
of methods, building the gateway to IP telephony. For customers, this model allows them to
use features like IP Networking, Collaboration, Mobility, and virtual Contact Center applications.
41
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
The diagram below illustrates these various solutions.
Figure 21: 3300 ICP as Gateway
Live Business Gateway
Mitel Live Business Gateway allows the Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 to
communicate with a Mitel 3300 IP Communications Platform (ICP). The Live Business Gateway
enables a user to place and receive calls from the Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 via a
Mitel IP desktop phone. It also provides Communicator 2007 and the Microsoft® Office system
with the telephony status of business users.
Note: Live Business Gateway continues to fully support Microsoft Live Communications
Server 2005 and Communicator 2005.
42
3300 ICP Network Support
Communications Server 2007 is an enterprise real-time communications server that supports
convergence of real-time multi-modal communications. Office Communicator is an integrated
enterprise communications client that integrates online presence, instant messaging, telephony
conferencing and video at the desktop. Office Communicator integrates into Microsoft Office
(Word, Excel, SharePoint). Through SIP/CSTA, the Live Business Gateway extends voice
capabilities beyond the basic SIP point-to-point communications of Communications Server to
enable the rich business telephony features and capabilities of the Mitel 3300 ICP.
The Live Business Gateway allows Office Communicator to take advantage of basic and
supplementary phone services offered by the 3300 ICP. Using Communications Server 2007,
Microsoft Office Communicator is able to control the phones connected to the 3300 ICP.
The Live Business Gateway:
•
Allows users to dial contacts using Office Communicator and Office Suite – either by lifting
the Mitel IP phone handset when the call is connected or by answering from a desktop with
Office Communicator.
•
Further extends Office Communicator and Office Suite with the online presence and availability status features of Online, Busy, DND, Be Right Back, and Appear Offline. It also
includes telephone presence for In Call and DND, allowing corporate or personal contacts
to quickly and easily know the preferable communication medium when immediacy is
required.
•
Allows desktop applications to easily use standard call control features such as placing,
transferring, forwarding, and holding calls.
•
Allows users to create up to an eight-party conference call without the need for a separate
Media Conferencing Unit (MCU) by clicking from contacts through the Office Communicator
GUI.
•
Uses the industry standard SIP/CSTA protocol which removes the need to understand Mitel
3300 ICP call control API. The Mitel solution allows an Office Communicator client to extend
past a basic 1:1 SIP call within the enterprise, thus enabling calls through the Mitel 3300.
The Live Business Gateway integrates into a typical 3300 ICP office environment as shown in
the following figure. In this diagram, the call placed from Office Communicator signals the Live
Communication Server, which then signals the Live Business Gateway. The Live Business
Gateway conveys a message to the 3300 ICP that then rings the two phones. Once the call is
connected, the 3300 ICP signals the Live Communications Server via the Live Business
Gateway to tell all Communicator clients that those two parties are now in a call.

PC-to-Phone Support and the 3300 IP Communications Platform
PC-to-Phone SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) integration is supported between Microsoft®
Office Live Communications Server (LCS) 2005 or Microsoft Office Communications Server
(OCS) 2007 and the Mitel® 3300 Integrated IP Communications Platform (ICP). An end user
can establish calls from a Microsoft Office Communicator client, acting as a basic SIP softphone,
to or from a Mitel desk phone, the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), or any other
network-connected PBX. The term PC-to-Phone encompasses calls between PC to PSTN,
Phone to PC, and PSTN to PC.
Typically, mobile employees use the PC-to-Phone solution with the embedded softphone
capability provided by the Microsoft Office Communicator client on their laptops. From a
Microsoft Office Communicator client, a user can dial through the Find field, through a Contact
list, or through the Microsoft Office suite of products as defined by the Microsoft server
specifications. All telephony services for the Communicator softphone are provided by the Live
Communications Server 2005 or Office Communications Server 2007. There is no integration
between the Communicator client and a Mitel desk phone.
44
3300 ICP Network Support
PC-to-Phone provides Communicator users with access to the full range of features provided
by the Office Communications Server (for example, Audio and Video Conferencing, Web
Collaboration, and Simultaneous Ringing). Simultaneous Ringing is very similar to the Mitel
Mobile Extension application. Simultaneous Ringing allows a user to program "twinned"
numbers for his or her Communicator client. When the client is called, the twinned number also
rings. Users can twin their Communicator clients with other devices such as their cell phones
or home phones.
The following sections describe the supported integrations. A SIP trunk is required to support
each concurrent call between the Communications Server and the 3300 ICP or PSTN.
Live Communications Server 2005

Migrating to the 3300 ICP
Migrating to the 3300 ICP
Mitel continually implements the latest technology advancements to increase the capacity,
performance, and value of our products. However, at the same time, Mitel has followed the
strategy of protecting our customers’ communication investments by allowing them to transition
their existing systems, whenever possible, to the latest Mitel solutions.
Customers can make a smooth transition from an existing SX-2000 LIGHT system to IP
telephony without sacrificing the features and the investment of their existing equipment. A
customer can make small incremental investments to move from the circuit-switched world to
a full 3300 ICP while retaining their investment in customer premise equipment and desktop
devices. IP telephony simplifies moves, adds, and changes of desktop devices. It also simplifies
the building cabling because the IP telephone and the desktop PC can share the same Ethernet
connection.
For both IP telephony and traditional circuit switched telephone users, migrating to IP telephony
enables you to bypass long distance tolls. It allows you to route traditional PSTN calls across
an unmetered IP network, reducing ongoing costs.
SX-2000 Adjunct
By integrating a 3300 ICP into an existing SX-2000 solution, our customer fully retains their
previous investment in Mitel equipment.
Figure 25: 3300 ICP Integrated with SX-2000 LIGHT
47
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
The 3300 ICP connects to the SX-2000 via a DPNSS (MSDN) connection. This connection
allows many features to work transparently, and also delivers the customer a gateway to IP
telephony.
SX-2000 Control Replacement
By replacing the SX-2000 control cabinet with the 3300 ICP Controller, the customer can retain
their investment in desktop devices and connection equipment while allowing the benefit of IP
telephony to be utilized immediately. This migration method has the advantage of retaining a
single communication controller and hence reducing administration overheads.
Customers can migrate from an SX-2000 LIGHT or MicroLIGHT to a 3300 ICP. The Mitel
Software Installer tool converts and restores an existing SX-2000 database to a 3300 ICP.
This replacement allows for conversion of a MicroLIGHT into another peripheral, with the ICP
taking over as controller.
Figure 26: SX-2000 Control Replacement

Migrating to the 3300 ICP
SX-200 Control Replacement
In the same manner as with the SX-2000, by replacing the SX-200 control cabinet with the
3300 ICP Controller, the customer can retain the bays and desktop devices and connection
equipment while allowing the benefit of IP telephony to be utilized immediately. All of the ONS,
OPS, and DNI lines can be reused, but no trunks are supported on the bays. Only bays with
the BCCIII controller are supported.
Non-Mitel Products
Non-Mitel PBX Adjunct
By integrating a 3300 ICP into an existing non-Mitel PBX, the customer retains their previous
investment in communication equipment while being able to take advantage of the benefits of
a superior IP telephony solution. The 3300 ICP can connect to the Non-Mitel PBX in a variety
of methods (depending on which is available) including QSIG, DPNSS or SIP.
The 3300 ICP delivers the customer a gateway to IP telephony. This method is typically utilized
when an end customer wants to take advantage of Mitel’s many features and applications but
does not want to completely replace their existing investment.

Federated Servers
UC Advanced servers in multiple locations can share IM and presence information between
servers.These federated servers allow UC Advanced users in one office to view the presence
and availability of UC Advanced users in another office in the same network.
Centralized Call Logging
The UC Advanced server can log incoming calls for UC Advanced clients while the client
software is not running. When UC Advanced is started, the UC Advanced server updates the
client with all the cached call log information since the last client session and displays it in both
the Call History and Call Log window.
Mobile Extension Integration
UC Advanced supports integration with Mobile Extension. A UC Advanced user who also has
Mobile Extension enabled can answer an incoming call directed to their desk phone on their
mobile device of choice. When the call is answered on the mobile device, UC Advanced is able
to change the telephony presence status to “Off Hook”. This enables UC Advanced to display
the correct telephony status for a user regardless of whether the call was answered on a user’s
desk phone, softphone or mobile device.

Hot Desking
Hot Desking creates a more flexible work environment by providing users with the ability to
share IP phones, making it ideal for businesses employing telecommuters, sales agents, and
other employees who spend only part of their time in the office. Hot Desking allows a pool of
shared phones to be made available to employees instead of requiring each employee to be
assigned a dedicated phone.
When a user logs in to a hot desk set, the system applies the user's phone profile – phone
settings such as directory number, COS/COR settings, display preferences such as language,
line appearances and button programming – to the set. Once logged in, Hot Desk users can
use or change the phone features associated with their profile; for example:
64
•
Call forwarding (all types)
•
Callback messages (message waiting indicator)
•
Auto Answer
•
Do Not Disturb (DND)
•
Last Number Redial
•
Timed Reminder
•
Advisory Status Message.
Applications
Hot Desking is supported across clustered networks so users can log on to any Hot
Desk-enabled set in the cluster. Upon successful login, the set is redirected to the user's host
ICP. Figure 30 shows an example of a hot desk user in a cluster.
External Hot Desking
Hot Desking is also supported on external answering points such as a cellular telephone, an
analog home phone, or even a remote telephone using a VoIP service. Once their user number
is programmed to support External Hot Desking, users simply ensure that they are logged out
of the Hot Desk set they last used and their calls will be routed to their External Hot Desk
telephone number.
Note: An External Hot Desking license is required for each Hot Desk user configured
with an external answering point.
Figure 30: Clustered Hot Desking
Hot Desking can also be resilient. If both the set and user are programmed for resiliency, then
the hot desk user does not lose service if the hosting controller fails. Instead, the hot desk
phone registers for call service with the secondary controller and the user remains logged in
with the current profile.
Teleworker Solution
The Teleworker Solution connects a remote office to the corporate voice network to provide full
access to voice mail, conferencing, and all the other features of the office phone system.
65
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
It requires the following:
Head Office
• Server installed with Mitel Applications Suite
software and the Teleworker Gateway
software blade
or
Server installed with Mitel Standard Linux
software and the Teleworker Gateway
software blade
Remote Site
• 5212, 5224, 5312, 5324, 5330, and 5340 IP
Phones, and Navigator phones
• DSL/cable router with Network Address
Translation (NAT) and local DHCP
• Broadband connectivity (static IP address is not
required)
• Static IP address
• Sufficient internet bandwidth (approximately
50 kbps is required per teleworker if G.729a
compression is enabled)
The Teleworker Solution can be completely configured at the head office using the 5212, 5224,
5312, 5324, 5330, 5340, or Navigator IP Phones. Using a two-click process, the phone is set
to operate in teleworker mode. The telephone keypad is used to enter the IP address of the
Teleworker Gateway installed at the head office. The phone can then be taken off-site and
plugged into any broadband Internet connection. When the phone is powered up, it
automatically establishes a connection with the Teleworker Gateway and is registered as a
standard extension of the office phone system. The phone can also be returned to normal
(non-teleworker) mode with the touch of a button.
The following illustrates possible Teleworker configurations. In these configurations, the
Applications Management Center (AMC) provides a range of downloadable applications and
services to the remote office.

Figure 31: Teleworker Solution
Mobile Extension
Mitel Mobile Extension is a software solution that lets users twin their desk phone with an internal
or external PSTN-connected phone (a cell phone, for example). Calls arriving at the desk phone
ring the cell phone simultaneously, until one or the other is answered, or if unanswered, are
forwarded to voice mail.
Mitel Mobile Extension allows users to extend commonly-used PBX features, such as hold and
transfer, to their cell phone. This allows an enterprise’s increasing mobile workforce to have
access to Mitel’s rich telephony features and applications while they are on the move. When
configured as a twin, the cell phone acts as an extension of the enterprise desk phone, providing
a single number contact and an integrated mobile and desktop experience.
Administrators configure system settings using an administrative web interface. Users program
their personal settings using either a web interface or a Telephony User Interface (TUI). For
more information, refer to the Mobile Extension documentation available on the Mitel edocs
website.
Mobile Extension is available as a standalone application or within Mitel Applications Suite.

Mitel NuPoint Messenger IP
Mitel NuPoint Messenger™ is a highly reliable, scalable, integrated voice and fax unified
messaging system that can be accessed anywhere, anytime. NuPoint Messenger provides
users access to a host of highly flexible and customizable applications including call director,
speech auto-attendant and Microsoft LCS 2005 integration. These applications allow users the
flexibility of having their calls routed to them while they are on the road, or having access to
their voice or fax messages from their PC. Simple and cost-effective system configuration,
implementation, administration, and management help streamline system management and
deliver lower total cost of ownership.
Using the power of Unified Messaging allows users to receive all their voice mails and emails
through one interface. When end users are at their desk, they can use their Outlook client to
manage their messages and when they are on the road, they can phone into the Mitel NuPoint
Messenger server to listen to their voice mails and emails. Unified Messaging simplifies the
end user experience and leads to increased productivity.
NuPoint Messenger provides the mailbox user with an interface to these capabilities through
the NuPoint Messenger Telephone User Interface (TUI) as well as through Outlook (using the
NuPoint Messenger Outlook Client Plug-in). When using the Outlook Client Plug-in, users are
able to record, playback, forward and reply to their voice mail messages as well as view their
fax messages. The Message Waiting Indication (MWI) is synchronized on the phone with the
reading of messages through the Outlook client, and vice versa to mark Microsoft Exchange
voice mail messages as read when the message is played back through the NuPoint Messenger
TUI. Text to Speech (TTS) allows users to listen to their email messages through their NuPoint
Messenger Voice Mail (either unread messages only or all messages).
Additionally, the NuPoint Messenger Speech Auto Attendant (SAA) is a speech-enabled
application that allows users to place calls to people quickly and efficiently by speaking their
names. In addition to placing calls by name, users can say a department name or telephone
number. An online tutorial introduces users to the system features, and voice-based help is
available to answer questions.
NuPoint Messenger is designed to scale up and provide voice applications to large enterprises
who demand high capacity, high availability and resilient services with the Active/Active
configuration. The NuPoint Messenger system allows the ability to network two active 640s to
a single MSA, thus allowing them to store all data, including voicemail accounts, messages,
greetings and all matters relating to NuPoint users and NuPoint system data in one shared
database. If a single 640 fails, the remaining one in the cluster will continue to operate. The
overall system appears functional with reduced traffic capacity (that is, ports).
NuPoint Messenger IP Model 640 has been engineered so there can be no single point of
failure, thus ensuring high availability and minimizing unplanned downtime, and it can be further
integrated into an organization’s data center infrastructure. The Active/Active configuration is
also available as a four-node NuPoint Messenger system. All nodes are active and share the
same database.

Mitel Messaging Server
The Mitel Messaging Server is an advanced computer-telephony-messaging solution designed
to meet the voice mail, unified messaging and call handling needs of small, medium, and large
enterprises.
The Messaging Server platform is designed to support a mixed environment of voice mail,
standard and advanced messaging users on one integrated system. A "system" consists of
software, software ports, integration boards for voice and fax and an IBM server. Note that voice
boards are not required for IP integration.
Note: Solution providers or the customer may provide the IBM server.
The Messaging Server provides an all-in-one communications solution, giving users access to
applications like desktop call control, unified messaging, Web messaging and administration,
instant messaging (LanTalk), and wireless connectivity. Companies can configure the server
to emulate other messaging solutions (such as Octel) that users may already be familiar with,
thus drastically reducing re-training time within an organization.
The Messaging Server is a DTMF-based messaging system permitting ultimate deployment
flexibility for any organization. It is available on a Windows 2000 Server platform; supports the
TCP/IP standard network protocol, and is expandable to 48 ports IP, 48 ports T1, and 60 ports
E1. It allows both the smallest and largest companies to implement cost-effective
network-telephony technology and have the tools to move toward Unified Messaging in the
future.
Integration to the MCD host platform is supported using IP, which eliminates the requirement
for Dialogic voice boards thus lowering the cost of the messaging solution. Note that IP
integration requires the appropriate MCD software options.
The Messaging Server is comprised of the following major components:
76
•
Automated Attendant
•
Multi-Lingual Support
Applications
•
Standard and Advanced Unified Messaging
•
System Administration
•
Fax Mail
Automated Attendant
•
Up to 99 auto attendants can be programmed to automatically greet callers with date and
time-sensitive greetings. For example, if the office is closed for the day, the auto attendant
can answer with an “Office Closed” greeting, which automatically takes effect Monday to
Friday from 5pm to 8am and all day Saturday and Sunday.
•
Auto Attendant can connect callers to users who are off-site by giving callers direct call
access to the user’s cell, home, or branch office phone number. The attendant gives callers
single-digit access to departments or individuals, Fax-on-Demand options, Information
mailboxes, and Interview boxes through a full-featured audio-text menu. The auto attendant
also supports Intelligent Call Routing.
•
Auto Attendant can now be deployed using speech recognition, which allows callers to
simply say the name of the person they are calling. Speech Auto Attendant reduces the
number of "dial 0" calls resulting from callers not knowing the extension number of the
person they wish to reach, and not being bothered to try to use complex dial-by-name
applications. Speech Auto Attendant can provide a significant return on investment by
decreasing hold times, freeing up receptionists to do more productive tasks, and potentially
decreasing telephony costs by reducing the number of trunks required to support incoming
calls.
Multi-Lingual Support
•
The Messaging Server offers caller services in many languages. Language-sets are currently available for English, French, and Spanish for North America. In addition to these
languages, Europe is supported with options for British English, Dutch, German, and Italian.
Standard Unified Messaging
•
Standard Unified Messaging is an integrated view of voice, email and fax messages through
a standard email client. The Messaging Server supports integration with SMTP/IMAP/POP3
compliant Email servers.
•
There is no limit to the number of Standard Unified Messaging users.
•
The Messaging Server allows Standard Unified Messaging users to configure and control
their messaging options using a telephone user interface (TUI). Options that can be accessed through the TUI include checking and responding to messages, programming up
to 99 greetings, configuring notification schedules and call transfer options, and managing
distribution lists. Optional desktop client applications allow for GUI activation of user options.
Advanced Unified Messaging
•
Advanced Unified Messaging is for mobile users who require access to emails using
text-to-speech (TTS). Users can use the Messaging Server for complete synchronization
of all their message types, complete desktop call control, and mailbox management.
77
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
•
The Messaging Server supports integration with Microsoft Exchange, Novell GroupWise™,
and Lotus Notes™.
•
Advanced Unified Messaging users have full access to a suite of desktop applications,
including Web Client, LanTalk, and Call Manager. Unified Messaging users have full mailbox
control with Web Client from their desktop or mobile PC through an easy-to-use, graphical
user interface (GUI) that is accessible with any standard web browser. Users can change
mailbox status, record or change greetings, set up notification schedules and distribution
lists, listen to messages, create folders and move messages from one folder to another, all
without ever picking up a phone. With Call Manager, desktop call control even integrates
with many popular PIM applications such as Act!, Maximizer, Outlook and Goldmine, allowing UM users to identify callers at a glance and control how the call is handled (for calls
presented through Messaging Server Auto Attendant only).
•
LanTalk is a corporate-wide instant messaging system, allowing users to quickly communicate with co-workers without having to "wait in line" behind email and voice mails.
System Administration
The Messaging Server Administrator Console is a plug-in for Microsoft Management Console
(MMC). Using this application, System Administrators can access administrative tools and
functionality from any LAN-based or Internet-based computer. The Administrator Console
allows up to 10 System Administrators to manage the system from any location, controlling
every aspect from changing a mailbox feature to adding a PBX. Mailbox configuration features
under administrator control include:
•
Feature Groups (Class of Service)
•
Flexible Schedules
•
Intelligent Dial Plan
•
Mailbox Templates
•
Copy & Paste Functionality
•
Customized Mailbox Layout
•
Additional Mailbox Options
Fax Mail
Fax Mail allows Unified Messaging users to receive faxes in their desktop mailbox. Now with
Soft Fax ports, the requirement for using fax boards is eliminated.The fax ports in the Messaging
Server receives the faxes and deposits them in the appropriate mailbox. Fax Mail then notifies
the user of the fax message. Upon opening the file in their email client or through the Web
Client, the default fax viewer displays the document. The user can then print, redirect, or save
the fax. Through their voice mailbox, users are prompted to press a key to print their fax or
redirect it to another fax machine.

ACD applications benefit from Mitel’s comprehensive Hot Desking features. With Hot Desking,
a pool of shared phones can be made available to all agents. Agents may login and logout of
any phone with their unique Hot Desk ID and password. The system applies the agent’s personal
profile to the set. Once logged in, agents may make themselves present in, or absent from, any
one of their groups through a pre-programmed feature access key (FAK). Even when not
present in any of their groups, agents still have access to their prime line key. Login and logout
may be accomplished using feature access codes (FACs), ensuring the flexibility in choice of
sets for the application. These capabilities are all controlled via Class of Service (COS) settings
in MCD, ensuring that ACD administrators have full control over how permissions are assigned.
Agents may be active in 16 agent groups at any given time (in an ACD application employing
the 3300 MXe Controller) and 30 agent groups at any given time (in an ACD application
employing the 3300 Mxe Server (LiCS)).
ACD features dynamic license allocation enabling customers to purchase only the number of
concurrent licenses needed for their operation.

requirements by consolidating the installation and management of multiple applications in one
easy-to-use server. Co-residency is provided for multiple applications, such as:
•
NuPoint Messenger
•
Mobile Extension
•
Teleworker
•
Audio and Web Conferencing
•
Mitel Customer Service Manager
Refer to the latest Mitel Applications Suite General Information Guide on the Mitel Customer
Documentation web site for a list of the currently supported applications.
Initial provisioning of the Applications Suite is simplified with the use of the Mitel Configuration
Wizard. This integrated software application configures the 3300 ICP, MCS, embedded or
NuPoint Messenger voice mail, Mobile Extension, and the Teleworker Solution. Standard or
custom settings can be pre-programmed and uploaded to the MCD system. After installation,
system configuration and administration of all applications is consolidated in a single web-based
console. Common data elements are shared among the applications, reducing both the need
for duplicate entry and the possibility for error.
For Applications Suite users, the End User Portal provides a common web interface where
users can change their own settings and passwords, search a company directory, and manage

85
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Property Management System
A Property Management System (PMS) provides a center for managing a hotel business. The
PMS system can provide reservation control, centralized accounting and billing, and call
logging. IP-enabled PMS applications can communicate with the 3300 ICP via a Telnet
connection. Applications that require a serial interface to connect to the network can use the
serial port on the 5550 IP Console or a third-party Serial-to-IP port converter
When information about a guest is changed at the PMS system, messages are sent to the PBX
via the PMS. Similarly when information about any guest is changed on the PBX, messages
are sent to the PMS system. In summary, the PMS is an intermediary for passing messages
from the PBX to the PMS system and from the PMS system to the PBX.
Clustered Hospitality Description
Clustered Hospitality provides hotel/motel feature functionality across a cluster of 3300 ICPs.
The cluster is comprised of a single Hospitality Gateway ICP and one or more Hospitality
ICPs.The Hospitality Gateway ICP interfaces to the Property Management System (PMS) and
the Guest Services Application (GSA) on the 5550 IP Console, and it can also host guest rooms
and their extensions.

to appear as a separate system to each tenant. Up to 64 small businesses or departments of
a larger business can share system features and capabilities.
Consoles, CO trunks, and dial-in trunks can be allocated individually to each tenant or shared
between tenants. Switching to night service can be done centrally, or on a tenant-to-tenant
basis. Calls through the system can be blocked, so tenants can only call each other on CO
trunks.
Some system features are enabled for each tenant individually while other features are shared
by all tenants. You can define groups, such as Attendant Groups, Trunk Groups, and Multiline
Appearances with devices belonging to different tenants. The tenanting option must be
purchased.
The following conditions apply to Tenanting:

Applications
Emergency Services Support
With Emergency Services support, when an emergency number is dialed (for example 911,
112), a Caller’s Emergency Services ID (CESID) is sent from the MCD system to the Public
Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Note PSAP is only relevant in North America. The CESID is
used as a key for the PSAP to determine the precise location of the caller. For this reason, it
is critical that the CESID database within MCD be kept up to date.
CESID is supported on analog sets, Mitel’s digital and IP sets, and generic SIP devices.
When users with digital or analog phones change offices or relocate within a building, a manual
update is required to the MCD database and the phone move is typically managed by the
Telecoms/IT team. The CESID database must be updated at this time to ensure that the user's
new location is accurately reflected in the database.
IP phones, however, can be moved from one location to another, by the user, without the need
for a manual update to the CESID database as automatic CESID updating is supported by MCD.
To utilize automatic CESID updating, the network environment must have all Layer 2 (L2)
switches that are configured for Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP), Spanning Tree Protocol (STP),
or both. The system performs automatic CESID updating for IP devices that are moved to a
known location. CESID Logs and CESID Alarms record all CESID-related activity on the system.
By automatically updating this information, businesses save the cost of manual updates and,
more importantly, ensure the safety of their employees.
Automatic CESID updates are not supported for Mitel Teleworker Solution IP phones, Mitel
Your Assistant Softphone, or wireless IP phones.
Emergency services are supported for Teleworker phones through the use of the Mitel Line
Interface Module module. Emergency call routing for Teleworkers is provided as follows:
•
If Emergency Call Routing is not configured in MCD, the user picks up the Teleworker phone
and presses the Line Interface Module configured key and dials the emergency number.
For more information, refer to Line Interface Module on page 121.
•
If Emergency Call Routing is configured in MCD, the user picks up the Teleworker phone
and simply dials the emergency number.
Emergency Response Advisor
Mitel Emergency Response Adviser is an application that runs on a Microsoft
Windows-compatible server and one or more remote terminals. It provides local security
personnel with an emergency call display and response console that
•
alerts them to new emergency calls
•
identifies the exact location of the phone that was used to dial the emergency number
•
lists any helpful extra information
•
waits for call acknowledgement
•
logs the call and time of acknowledgement.
89
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
This functionality is added to the existing Emergency Services feature offered by MCD. The
switch performs the actual routing of emergency calls to the Public Safety Answering Point
(PSAP) where emergency personnel (such as fire or ambulance) are dispatched by PSAP
call-takers.
Emergency Response Adviser has options for alerting mobile personnel via their phones or
their pagers. It can also simplify the generation of data files necessary for keeping the PSAP
up to date with physical plant changes (an essential part of emergencies services management).
Multi-Level Precedence and Preemption (MLPP)
The Multi-Level Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) feature supports emergency
communications for the military as part of the Defense Switched Network (DSN). MLPP allows
authorized users to
•
specify a precedence level when they make a call
•
preempt calls that have a lower precedence level.
Preemption allows important calls to take precedence over less important calls. Important calls
that need immediate attention are identified by a continuous preemption warning tone. While
on a call, if a caller hears a continuous preemption warning tone, the caller must hang up
immediately, wait for an MLPP ring, and then answer the telephone.
This functionality is supported for incoming and outgoing trunk calls on T1 ISDN PRI circuits,
as well as for internal calls (calls between stations on the same switch).
About Precedence Levels and Service Domains
The precedence level of a call determines whether or not it can be preempted by another call.
The following precedence levels are supported:
•
FLASH OVERRIDE (highest precedence)
•
FLASH
•
IMMEDIATE
•
PRIORITY
•
ROUTINE (lowest precedence).
Calls that have a higher precedence level preempt calls that have a lower precedence level.
So, for example, a call with a precedence level of FLASH can preempt a call with a precedence
level of IMMEDIATE. In addition, you can designate users as either preemptable or
non-preemptable. Non-preemptable users can still assign precedence levels to calls.
Trunk Support
MLPP trunk calls are restricted to TI ISDN PRI circuits on NSUs and embedded T1 cards that
are programmed to support T1-619a signaling.
90
Applications
If the precedence level of an outgoing trunk call is above ROUTINE, and there are no idle trunks
currently in the selected MLPP trunk route, the system will attempt to find a circuit that has a
lower precedence level call. If the system finds a circuit that has a lower precedence, it will
attempt to preempt that call and use the circuit for the new call.
If the remote switch (the switch to which the system is connected) needs to make a call above
ROUTINE to the system, it may preempt a call on a busy trunk and use that circuit for the new
call. After the system seizes an incoming trunk, the far end communicates the precedence level
of the call to the system via out-of-band signaling.
Making a Call at a Precedence Level above Routine
To make a call at a precedence level above ROUTINE, a user dials a two-digit access code
comprised of an MLPP access digit (range of 2 to 9) followed by a precedence level digit (range
of 0 to 4) or a service digit (range of 5 to 9). The MLPP access digit identifies the call as a
precedence call; the precedence level digit identifies the actual precedence level (for example
FLASH); the service digit allows users to dial out trunks that are not part of the DSN. If the
chosen precedence level is less than or equal to the user's programmed maximum, the system
allows the call to proceed. Otherwise, the system provides an error tone or announcement.
Mitel Call Accounting
Call Accounting allows you to track your telephone system costs and summarize them in reports

The Mitel Solutions Alliance (MSA) Developers Program offers third-party vendor partners and
end customers access to software development tool kits and support services for integration
to our award-winning range of IP communication devices.
MSA Universal SDK Development Kit
The MSA Universal Software Development Kit (SDK) is a set of software, testing tools, and
documentation that provides developers what they need to effectively develop applications for
MCD.
The SDK application contains the following software options and troubleshooting tools:
•
MiTAI: Used to enable switch-to-application server communication for multiple switches.
•
MiAUDIO: Used to enable an application to process voice on multiple Mitel phones.
•
MiTAI Browser Tool: Used to ensure the connection is functioning properly, to make function
calls and to view events from the API.
•
MiTAI Server Logger Tool: Used to connect to the MCD host platform and download log
files, and to capture all MiTAI server incoming and outgoing messages for debugging
purposes.
•
MiTAI Client Logger Tool: Used to access MiTAI application information, to collect MiTAI
API information in a log file, and to capture MiTAI client data about incoming and outgoing
messages for debugging.
•
MiAUDIO Test Tool: Used to verify that MiAUDIO has been correctly installed and that all
connections allow proper communication between the MiAUDIO application and the MCD
host platform.
MiTAI
Mitel Telephony Application Interface (MiTAI) is a powerful telephony API designed for
applications requiring sophisticated call- and PBX-control functionality. MiTAI offers a full suite
of capabilities from simple third-party call control to contact center monitoring and control.
MiTAI follows the client-server model. The server component resides in MCD. The client
component is co-resident with the application. A MiTAI application accesses the MCD host
platform via a LAN connection.
MiTAI and MiAUDIO
MiTAI can integrate with MiAUDIO, enabling the development of applications that require more
sophisticated capabilities beyond the standard servicing of calls. Examples of such applications
include voice mail or automated call routing systems requiring DTMF detection.
92
Applications
MiAUDIO
MiAUDIO enables developers to include the processing of telephone audio streams in their
applications for MCD. Examples of MiAUDIO applications include a voice mail system, or an
automated recorded message delivery system.
MiAUDIO is used to control the calls of a physical phone or a workstation softphone. MiAUDIO
can receive and interpret Dual Tone Modular Frequency (DTMF) signals while also handling
multiple phones, trunk devices, and routing queues. Applications written for MiAUDIO allow for
third-party call control (outside of the "conversation"). MiAUDIO targets server applications
controlling multiple devices and handling such things as corporate voice mail, where speech
recognition and DTMF detection are required.
Emulating the Mitel 5020 IP Phone controlled by MCD, MiAUDIO provides voice port capabilities
to server-based applications. MiAUDIO offers the following:
•
Up to 60 ports (softphones) for voice applications
•
Voice stream record and playback
•
Phone and line device interface for monitoring and controlling the softphone
•
DTMF generation
•
DTMF detection events for IP- and TDM-sourced calls
•
Call control via MiTAI.
Secure Recording Connector
Mitel Secure Recording Connector (SRC) is a call recording solution that allows third-party
recording equipment to record Mitel encrypted voice streams. SRC is placed on the LAN and
accepts requests from properly authorized Call Recording Equipment (CRE) to establish taps
in the voice stream.
SRC is a Mitel Standard Linux-based (MSL) software blade, similar to Teleworker. Phones that
are enabled for call recording register with the ICP via the SRC. SRC then taps (mirrors) the
voice streams of any enabled phone, or group of phones, to third-party call recording equipment.
Developers can use the SRC-CRE interface to add, remove, and query recording taps.
HTML Toolkit for 5330 and 5340 IP Phones
The Mitel 5330 and 5340 desktop application phones feature a large graphics display and a
built-in HTML player. The Mitel HTML Desktop Toolkit provides developers with the ability to
easily develop graphical applications for the phones using a standard web authoring tool.
The toolkit helps organizations tightly integrate the 5330 and 5340 into their business processes
and deliver tailored functionality for a wide range of business applications targeting horizontal
and vertical market sectors. Custom applications result in easy navigation, enhanced usability
of the display phone and the attainment of organizational objectives (sales, branding, process
improvement, etc.).
•
Some examples of applications that may be developed with the HTML Toolkit are:

Administrator Tools
Group Administration Tool
This web-based interface allows administrators to configure basic IP phone settings for
members of their group. Through this tool, a group administrator can:
•
set basic system parameters
•
create the system telephone directory
•
manage extension and group parameters
•
add, edit, or delete users from the system directory
•
configure voice mailboxes
•
program a user's personal keys with features.
The following figure illustrates the Group Administration Tool.
Figure 38: Group Administration Tool Interface
96
Tools
System Administration Tool
The System Administration Tool allows trained technicians and system administrators to
program system-wide parameters, voice parameters (line, extensions, management
parameters, system directory, and voice mail) and IP networking parameters. This tool also
provides access to Maintenance Logs, Software Logs, and Login and Logout Audit Logs.
The System Administration Tool also includes the User Provisioning form which provides
administrators with the following capabilities:
•
Consolidated view of user or device information - simplifies the add, modify and delete
functions for most users and devices. It reduces the number of times the same data is
entered into the system which reduces the entry errors and time spent on these types of
tasks.
•
Copy user functionality - allows administrators to quickly create new entries using other
existing user or device settings or configuration.
•
Import capability - allows administrators to quickly collect and import user and device data
via MS-Excel spreadsheets. These spreadsheets contain built in validation similar to ESM
data entry rules which helps reduce errors.
The System Administration Tool supports Range programming. Range programming speeds
up the programming and configuration of MCD by allowing the administrator to program
repetitive data using a single command. The administrator can also print forms and form data.
The System Administration Tool also includes data import functionality which allows the
administrator to quickly import large numbers of new users and devices via a .CSV format file.
The administrator can collect a large amount of configuration data into the spreadsheet file,
and then import it directly into the MCD database. The import functionality eliminates the
requirement to manually enter configuration data for each user or device. It saves a considerable
amount of configuration time, and it reduces the likelihood of data-entry errors.
Technicians can import new user data when setting up a new system, or administrators can
import large numbers of users or devices whenever they need to be added to the system.
In addition, the System Administration Tool can be used to maintain a small group of network
elements (10 or fewer) effectively and conveniently without a management tool such as
Enterprise Manager or OPS Manager. This capability enables an administrator to "reach
through" to the System Administration tool of any network element to perform programming,
and it also enables the backup of all databases from a single session on a network element.
For additional details please see the Mitel Communications Director System Administration
Tool Help available on Mitel’s edocs website.
Note: The use of this feature requires that the network elements be grouped together
within an SDS Administrative group. See “System Data Synchronization” on page 100.

OPS Manager
OPS Manager is a telecommunications management tool that simplifies administration and
maintenance for a network or cluster of MCD host platforms. OPS Manager offers a centralized
telephone directory, networked moves, adds and changes, and the ability to automate many
repetitive administration tasks including time synchronization and placing individual voice
platforms into night service. OPS Manager provides additional functionality to Enterprise
Manager and is purchased in conjunction with Enterprise Manager. Using a standard web
browser, an authorized user can perform the following functions from any PC on the network:
•
Manage a network telephone directory.

For more information on OPS Manager, refer to Enterprise Manager General Information Guide.
System Data Synchronization
System Data Synchronization:
•
Reduces the time to provision multiple MCD nodes.
•
Ensures that changes to network data are performed consistently and accurately across
the network, improving change management costs.
•
Simplifies network deployment and reduces initial deployment costs by synchronizing the
newly deployed MCD nodes with the existing network.
•
Enhances security management across the network by allowing accounts and passwords
to be managed centrally.
The System Data Synchronization application allows an administrator to synchronize database
information among a network or cluster of MCD systems. Any database changes made to any
one of the platforms in the network or cluster are applied to the databases of the other platforms.
In a network or cluster of MCD systems, certain programming data, such as Interconnect
Handling Restrictions, Feature Access Codes, and Class of Service Options, should be identical
for each platform. The System Data Synchronization (SDS) feature eliminates the need for
administrators to log into each platform and manually program the data to be the same. It also
simplifies all future modifications of system data because it keeps the network and/or cluster
element databases in sync. After a network or cluster has been set up with System Data
Synchronization, all adds, modifications, and deletions to the system data that have been
designated as shared are automatically distributed to the other MCD systems in the network
or cluster.
The System Data Synchronization (SDS) feature also synchronizes the data of resilient users
and devices between primary and secondary controllers. After data sharing between the primary
and secondary controllers has been set up, the application automatically maintains the
synchronization of user and device data. This feature keeps user and device data, such as the
DND feature key and personal speed call keys, synchronized between the primary and
secondary controller regardless of whether users modify their personal settings while they are
connected to their primary or secondary controller.
SDS supports Remote Directory Number (RDN) synchronization for all elements in a network
or cluster, providing administrators with an alternative to utilizing OPS Manager for this purpose.
SDS is used to facilitate Mitel’s Multi-Node Management applications, convenient management
capabilities for administrating small groups of network elements. See “System Administration
Tool” on page 97.

Tools
Management Access Point
The Management Access Point provides secure remote management access and optional
alarm monitoring of an MCD system over public network connections. It offers access security
and customer protection using dial-up or Internet VPN connectivity.
The Management Access Point requires no additional client software. It uses a 10BaseT
Ethernet connection to the customer network, and the dialup versions of the product support
connectivity for up to five IP-based systems over standard dialup PSTN V.90 modems. The
broadband VPN version, the Management Access Point E/E, provides support for up to 16 IP
systems for Internet VPN or dialup modem access.
Remote service engineers connect to the Management Access Point via a PPP or PPTP
connection using standard Windows Network Connectivity capabilities and MS-CHAPv2
authentication. However, in order to connect to the Management Access Point console, the
customer must enable a privileged remote session for the engineer. The remote engineer can
establish an IP connection only to local IP destinations that are configured in the Management
Access Point. The engineer must know the destination IP address in order to reach a managed
session. At that point, the engineer must have a valid system login account to access the remote
system. Once the engineer is logged into the remote system, any administrative, maintenance
or diagnostic task can be performed.
The Management Access Point:
•
Supports CLI-based call screening so calls are screened based on the origination of phone
numbers. (See the latest Management Access Point FCI for supported countries.)
•
Uses Point-to-Point (PPP) and Challenge Handshake Authentication (CHAP) protocols to
prevent passwords from being sniffed or captured and replayed.
•
Provides an embedded firewall so access is restricted to select devices, and the customer
LAN is fully protected.
•
Prevents remote Management Access Point configuration or firewall changes without the
customer granting privilege.
•
Tracks configuration changes during privileged connections.
•
Supports source IP address screening for VPN connections with the Management Access
Point E/E unit.
Maintenance Tools
AMC Licensing
The Applications Management Center (AMC) is accessible through Mitel Online. AMC licensing
streamlines the Mitel product licensing process and reduces the interaction between Mitel’s
distributors, solution providers, and customers. Each group is able to satisfy their licensing
needs online.
101
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Each group is set up with an AMC account. Licenses are purchased by the Solution Provider
who provides the licenses to the customer. The Solution Provider uses the AMC to create a
list of customers and to associate a number of application records with each customer.
Application records are simply license profiles of a customer's Mitel products. The Solution
Provider can then allocate licenses from their own AMC account to the customer's application
records.
All installations require a new Application Record ID and license key (password) that are
requested from the AMC via Mitel Online. Upgrades require only a new license key. Technicians
can then perform upgrades and updates by:
•
synchronizing the system software with the AMC via the internet, or
•
installing the software offline (no internet access required) using the Software Installer Tool.
The AMC allows customers to transfer licences between their MCD systems simply and quickly.
The only restrictions are that all of the platforms must all belong to the same end customer and
that the licences must be automatically activated. Manually activated licenses cannot be
transferred to other systems.
For more details on AMC licensing, refer to the AMC Online Help.
Solution Providers
When the Solution Provider's stock of licenses begins to run low, the Solution Provider orders
new licenses from their Distributor or directly from Mitel, depending on their location. The
Distributor or Mitel accepts the order and moves the licenses from their AMC account into the
Solution Provider's AMC account. The Solution Provider now has the licenses available to sell to
end users. At this point, license activation can occur. The end user has no involvement in the
process. AMC Licensing allows a license to be moved with a user to different MCD system subject
to certain restrictions. For additional details on these restrictions, refer to AMC Online Help.
Customer
When a customer wants a new license, they place an order with their Solution Provider. Using
the AMC, the Solution Provider assigns a license to the relevant application record. A password
is automatically activated and made available to the Solution Provider. The Solution Provider
installs the license and the customer can now use the license without having any interaction
with Mitel or the Distributor.
MCD Software Installer
The MCD Software Installer is a Windows-based software tool that enables technicians to
automatically upgrade software on one MCD system or on multiple MCD systems
simultaneously. The MCD Software Installer tool provides a single interface that allows
technicians to define which installation steps to perform during the upgrade process. The MCD
Software Installer Tool re-synchronizes with the AMC during software upgrades. For more
information on AMC, refer to “AMC Licensing” on page 101.
102
Tools
The MCD Software Installer Tool is a stand-alone tool that simplifies the installation of MCD
software by limiting the number of interactive steps that are required during installation.
Technicians can use this tool to:
•
backup, upgrade, install, change options, and restore
•
set up a scheduled time to upgrade an MCD system
•
send e-mails to a list of recipients to inform that installation is complete
•
run a command line after MCD Software Installer is finished
•
show start times and elapsed times when MCD Software Installer is finished
•
save settings to .config files for later use
•
support more than one instance of MCD Software Installer on one PC.
The Software Installer consists of one main screen that allows technicians to define the IP
Address and account properties of the MCD system being upgraded, and a wizard screen that
allows technicians to collect the necessary upgrade information.
In 3300 ICP Release 8.0 and later, the MCD Software Installer can be used to upgrade controller
software while the system is running. This process is referred to as Online Upgrade. When the
installation or upgrade is complete, the SI tool will switch from the old software to the new, and
the only downtime will be the time it takes to reboot.
Mitel Integrated Configuration Wizard
The Mitel Integrated Configuration Wizard is an independent software application that simplifies
initial programming and allows system databases to be set up quickly. The application is
installed onto a maintenance PC and then run while the PC is either connected or disconnected
from the MCD system. Technicians can create and save database templates that can be used
for new installations. The technician connects the Configuration Wizard with the MCD system
through the network and then applies the database.
The Configuration Wizard can also be used to commission NuPoint Messenger, Mobile
Extension, and Teleworker users on a Mitel Applications Server. Refer to the Mitel
Communications Director System Administration Tool online help for more information on the
Mitel Integrated Configuration Wizard.
Line Measure Tool
The Line Measure Tool (LMT) allows technicians to determine the line settings for Loop Start
(LS) trunks that are connected to the AX Controller Card Chassis, Analog Main Board, Analog
Option Board, or ASU II by running the following tests:
•
Individual or Batch Line Quality Test: Reports the loss level, Echo Return Loss (ERL), and
line quality for a specified trunk(s). A recommended setting is provided based on the test
results.
•
Individual or Batch Distortion/Echo Test: Measures the non-linear distortion effects (for
example, from clipping) of a specified LS trunk(s) for each candidate balance circuit setting.
103
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
The Line Quality test allows technicians to obtain the optimum Balance Network Setting and
Trunk Category for each LS trunk, based on the signals received from the CO. These settings
are then programmed into the Analog Trunk Assignment form of the LS trunk to reduce the
possibility of echo and audio level issues between the trunks and IP phones.
Technicians can run the Loop Start (LS) Measure tests using calls between a 3300 ICP and
CO, or by looping calls through one LS trunk on the 3300 ICP back through other LS trunk on
the same 3300 ICP.
Alarms Management
The 3300 ICP system raises an alarm when an anomaly is detected and corrective action is
required. The system continuously provides all attendants who use the Mitel consoles with
alarm status information. Alarm threshold levels are programmable. There are three classes
of alarms:
•
Critical: indicates a loss of service that demands immediate attention. This alarm invokes
System Fail Transfer.
•
Major: indicates a fault that affects service to many users. This alarm usually results in a
major degradation in service and requires attention to minimize customer complaints.
•
Minor: indicates any fault that does not fall into either of the above two classes. When the
system is not 100% operational, a minor alarm is raised. It may require the attention of a
technician, but it is not urgent. Examples of a minor alarm include the loss of a single line
or trunk circuit.
The system clears an alarm condition when the fault is corrected.
Remote Alarms Notification
MCD can e-mail notification of alarm conditions to up to 10 addresses should a critical, major,
or minor alarm occur. Prompt notification of alarms ensures that issues can be resolved quickly.
The technician or administrator can set up this feature to send notifications based on the severity
of the alarm.
MCD also supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). SNMP traps can be used
to monitor the system devices and functions. The SNMP agent in MCD communicates with
SNMP-compatible Network Management Stations and supports industry-standard MIB-II
definitions as well as proprietary SNMP extensions.
SNMP defines asynchronous messages called "traps". SNMP traps are generated to alert the
administrator when significant events take place such as alarms are triggered or cleared. Traps
are sent by the SNMP agent in MCD to an SNMP manager usually to report error conditions,
but other types of messages can also be transmitted.
Controlled System Access
System Administrator Policies allow the customer to control a technician’s or administrator’s
access to programming forms in the System Administration Tool. When you create a policy,
104
Tools
you set permissions that grant Read or Read/Write access to forms. You can also allow remote
access or deny access to forms. Denying access to a form hides the form from the technician
or administrator.
System Data Synchronization can distribute the policies to all platforms in a cluster of MCD
systems.
Mitel also offers the Management Access Point (MAP) to provide secure controlled access to
the system from a remote location. The MAP allows the customer to control the technician’s
remote access to the system and system tools.
IP Phone Analyzer
The IP Phone Analyzer is a Windows application that collects performance information from
IP Phones within the network. It allows the technician to use one PC to monitor the status of
all IP phones on the system. IP Phones within the network send debug, status, and statistical
information to the IP Phone Analyzer. The IP Phone Analyzer allows the technician to direct
phones to new IP Phone Analyzer addresses via an MCD Maintenance task. This eliminates
the requirement to reset the phones manually.
The application provides the following information in four views:
•
Status View - Displays status of each phone registered with the analyzer application, MAC
Address, IP Address, Directory Number, State, Link Lost, Set Type, Absolute Time, Load
Revisions, Current ICP, and the CODEC type being used by each set on the network.
•
Packet View - Displays trace messages sent from each set for analyzing purposes.
•
Packet History View - Sorts messages received by the IP Phone Analyzer.
•
Call Statistics View - Displays call statistics, including RTP statistics, collected from IP
sets.
ISDN Maintenance and Administration Tool
The ISDN Maintenance and Administration Tool (IMAT) provides the programming interface
for Network Service Units (NSUs) that are connected to the system. IMAT requires Microsoft
Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP
Professional.
Note: Embedded PRI programming for the T1/E1 module is supported through the
System Administration Tool instead of IMAT.

Mitel Wireless LAN (WLAN) Stand
The Mitel Wireless LAN (WLAN) Stand enables IP Phones to operate in a wireless environment.
The stand provides the following interfaces:
•
10/100 Ethernet interface that is used to attach the WLAN Stand to the 5300 series phones
•
802.11b/g wireless interface that connects the IP Phones with the wireless network.
The WLAN stand and its attached phone can act either as a Wireless Client terminal (station)
or an Access Point:
•
As a Wireless Client terminal, it address market opportunities where only WLAN connectivity
is available, such as new or temporary installations where it is more cost-effective to implement a WLAN rather than a wired LAN.
•
As an Access Point, it is an attractive solution for small installations such as retail outlets
or service depots where power is more accessible than LAN connectivity and where an
existing WLAN infrastructure is unlikely.
Mitel Gigabit Ethernet Stand
The Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) Stand enables the phones to operate in a 10/100/1000 Mbit/s
Ethernet (GigE) LAN environment and allows unconstrained Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth from
the network to desktops. The GigE Stand supports the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet
standard, eliminating the need for a separate power supply to power the IP phone.
The GigE Stand attaches to the base of the IP phone and replaces the existing stand. It has
three ports:
•
GigE LAN port (to connect to the Gigabit Switch)
123
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
•

Mitel 5550 IP Console
The Mitel 5550 IP Console is an advanced PC-based console and administration application.
It has a highly intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) including screen based call status and
call handling prompts. A telephony keypad and dual handset/headset jack provide fast, efficient
attendant call handling.
The 5550 IP Console is ideal for both departmental and enterprise attendants requiring fast
and easy access to call-processing functionality, and the ability to use other applications on
the same PC.
In the low/medium traffic areas, the console operator can use the same PC for processing calls
and for day-to-day office tasks (such as e-mail and word processing). By eliminating the need
for a separate PC at the attendant station, this solution becomes more economical for the
company. The 5550 IP Console provides easier access to future software upgrades, without
the requirement to replace the hardware.
The 5550 IP Console solution consists of the telephony hardware and the console application
software that enables it to run on a customer-supplied PC.

Music On Hold provides callers with music or information while they Yes
are waiting for a call to be completed. Music On Hold is provided when
a call is on Hold, transferred to a busy party, or camped-on to a station.
The music or information source is provided by the customer.
There are three types of Music on Hold:
• Analog Music on Hold
• Digital Music on Hold
• Embedded Music on Hold (allows systems to use embedded .wav
files as music sources).

Simple Network
Time Protocol
(SNTP)
The 3300 ICP supports a client for Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) N/A
distribution. Administrators benefit from automatic synchronized
clocks for all 3300’s in a system, automatic updates for daylight
savings time, and descriptive timestamps and logs
(NOTE: Clock synchronization on MCS systems is provided by the
Mitel Standard Linux operating system.)
Networking
The system supports both analog and digital networking. See Node ID N/A
Recognition and Uniform Numbering Plan.
Networking using
MSDN/MSAN
MSDN/DPNSS provides fast call setup capabilities and feature
transparency across the network. No significant difference between
making a local call and a network call is apparent to the user
N/A
All of the MSDN networking packages require that each PBX has
MSDN Voice I or MSAN installed.
Networked ACD
Supports ACD functions over a Mitel Switched Digital Network
No
(MSDN). Agent skill groups at different locations (on different
systems) may service calls on the network independently of where the
call entered the network.

complete dialing, the alert is sent to a set.
Yes
Off-Hook Voice
Announce
Allows you to receive a direct page during a handset or headset call. Yes
See Direct Page.
ONS Ports as Music
Sources
Allows a music source, either the system’s Music on Hold source, or N/A
an ACD alternate music source, to be an ONS port instead of a DMP
module. The Alternative Recording Device (ARD) is an off-hook ONS
port that connects to callers in a listen-only conference. The user
decides what is supplied on the ONS port - silence, music, or endless
loop recordings.
Note: An ARD should not be used as a first-level announcement
(Music On Hold, for example).
Eliminating or reducing the number of DNIC circuits and DMP
modules translates into cost savings for the organization.
Overlap Outpulsing
Reduces post-dialing delay when trunk calls are originated. Once ARS N/A
has determined a route, a trunk is seized and tones are outpulsed to
the CO. These pulses are sent before the user has finished dialing to
allow faster call setup on analog trunks.
Override
Allows you to enter a conversation at a busy station or ring a station
with Do Not Disturb activated. Before you enter the conversation, all
parties receive a warning tone.
Yes

Remote Wake-up
Calls
Wake-up calls can be set or cancelled remotely from a telephone or No
attendant console using the Hotel/Motel Room Remote Wake-up Call
feature access codes.
Reroute after Call
Forward Follow Me
to Busy Destination
This feature uses the class of service option Call Reroute after CFFM No
to busy destination. With this option set to YES, if the user programs
call forward always and the call forward third party or group call
forward destination is busy, the call follows the original called set’s
programmed call reroute first alternative for busy. For example, a call
arrives at station A that is call forwarded under one of the above stated
conditions to station B. If station B is busy or does not answer, the call
follows station A's First Alternative Rerouting. With the COS option set
to NO, the call only follows set A's rerouting on a no answer condition.
This functionality applies only to calls using call forward always; call
forward third party or group call forward with the "forwarded to"
destination being an internal party, another user across MSDN or calls
forwarded externally via ISDN.
Resiliency
(3300 ICP only)
Allows the IP Phones to re-home to a secondary controller if a 3300 Yes
ICP fails or is taken out of service. This ensures that there is no

Feature
Description
Forward Voice Mail to
E-Mail
This feature allows users to forward voice messages, including Record-a-Call
messages, to an E-mail address. Users can choose to manually forward voice
messages, or automatically forward all voice messages.
Memo
Subscribers have single-digit access to send a message to their own mailbox, for
future reminders and memo-type messaging.
Message Notification
The subscriber is notified that they have received a message by the message
light on their phone (MWI), and optionally by setting the notification type to one
of the following options, which causes the voice mail system to call:
• the mailbox’s associated extension number, for analog phone extensions or
phones without a message light (prompts called party to log into their mailbox).
• an outside number (prompts called party to log into their mailbox).
• a message pager (plays an audio message indicating messages are waiting).
• a tone-only pager (simply hangs up after a far connection is made).
• a digital pager (plays DTMF digits corresponding to a system-wide callback
number along with the specific mailbox number).
The system administrator may change notification options. The mailbox owner
may also modify them if the system administrator grants permission. In addition
to the notification type, the phone number and schedule are configurable. The
schedule determines whether paging occurs:
• around the clock, regardless of the business schedule.
• only during open business hours.
• only during closed business hours.
• never (disabled until the schedule is changed to one of the three previous
schedule options).
Finally, a mailbox may be configured to do non-MWI notification only in response
to urgent messages (as opposed to all messages).
By default, a busy or no answer condition detected on a notification call results in
two additional retries occurring at 15-minute intervals. All notification results are
posted to the system log file.
Outside Message
Notification Calls
The administrator configures a trunk access code for use in all outside notification
calls. The trunk access code controls the lines to be used for notification.
Distribution List, Broadcast
Message
Allows four system-wide and five (per mailbox) personal distribution lists as well
as a broadcast message facility to deliver a message to all mailboxes. Individual
subscribers can belong to any number of distribution lists.
New mailbox Tutorial
The system guides the user through the steps required for initial configuration of
mailbox, including specification of a (non-default) passcode and recording of a
personal greeting and name.

Features
Feature
Description
Mailbox Types
The following mailbox types are available:
Extension - the auto-attendant transfers a caller to the mailbox’s associated
extension. If the called party is busy or does not answer, the caller is prompted
to leave a message in the mailbox. The extension mailbox may be linked to other
mailboxes for transfer only (dual mailboxes). This permits the caller to transfer to
other mailboxes in the same department.
Message-Only - the auto-attendant does not attempt a transfer but immediately
prompts the caller to leave a message in the mailbox.
Transfer-Only - the auto-attendant transfers a caller to the mailbox’s associated
extension but does not take a message if the called party is busy or does not
answer.
Information-Only - the auto-attendant only plays the mailbox greeting; no
transfer or prompt to leave a message occurs.
Administrator - for accessing administrative functions such as greetings
recording.
Property Management
System (PMS)
A Voice Mail feature that allows the hospitality industry to connect their Hotel
PMS systems to the voice mail application via an IP interface. This IP connection
allows the PMS to notify voice mail when a user checks in or checks out. Based
on this information the voice mail system either creates or deletes a mailbox for
the guest.
Record a Call
Using Voice Mail as a recorder, this feature allows a subscriber to record a live
conversation between themselves and another party.
Softkey Integration
Users with Mitel telephones can press softkeys instead of dialing codes to select
Mitel Express Messenger menu options. For example, to listen to message, a
user can press the Play Message softkey instead of dialing the digit 7.
Dual Mailboxes
A transfer-only mailbox can be linked to the same extension as an existing
extension-type mailbox. This enables, for example, a single mailbox for a sales
department and the sales manager.
Mailbox Administration via
OPS Manager
Mailbox administration (adds, moves, changes) can be performed using OPS
Manager, a standalone application that works seamlessly with the MCD
embedded system management.
Networked Voice Mail
Networked Voice Mail allows voice mail users to seamlessly send and receive
messages between all the voice mail servers on a network. This includes (but is
not limited to):
• selecting destination mailboxes using the corporate voice mail directory.
• confirmation of destination mailboxes (name or number).
• using existing voice mail features such as receipts, distribution lists, replying
to a voice mail
Networked Voice Mail supports EMEM (networked and clustered), NuPoint
Messenger, and other VPIM2-compliant mail servers (G.711 compliant), and is
compatible with Hot Desking.
Personal Contacts
Personal Contacts allow users to store alternate numbers where callers can
contact them instead of leaving a message. Callers are prompted in the greeting
to press a key to have their call transferred to the alternate number—they are
never told the number. Users can program up to ten (10) Personal Contacts.

Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
Feature
Description
Distribution Lists
A Distribution List allows mailbox subscribers to send messages to several
people at one time. There are two types of distribution lists: personal lists and
global lists. Personal lists are set up by individual subscribers for their own use.
Global lists are for use by all subscribers and are set up using the Distributions
List Form. Only the system administrator can set up or change the global lists. Up
to 49 global lists (001-049) can be created. A fiftieth list (000) is already set up to
broadcast messages to every local mailbox. Users can create up to 10 personal
lists (050-059). Each distribution list can have up to 750 contacts.
RAD Greetings
This feature provides the ability to play recorded greetings through an embedded
voice mail port (RAD port), eliminating the need for external tape machines or
other audio-playing devices. RADs are commonly used to automatically answer
incoming calls and deliver pre-recorded messages such as “All of our
representatives are busy helping other callers, please continue to hold to
maintain your call priority.” When the RAD message finishes playing, the caller
usually hears Music On Hold while waiting for an agent to become available. RAD
messages may also give the caller information, which answers their questions,
thus resulting in a 'good’ abandoned call. They may also provide advertising or
promotional information to callers while they’re waiting for someone to take their
call.
Record a Call Option
Allows users and ACD agents to record telephone conversations to be reviewed
later. The message is saved in Voice Mail. Recorded calls can be replayed to
ensure accurate information was derived from the conversation or perhaps to
monitor harassing telephone calls. When a user activates this feature, it is
accomplished in silence.
Record a Call is supported through embedded voice mail functionality
Voice Mail Hunt Group
MCD supports a single, large, voice mail hunt group with up to 240 members.
This large hunt mail group can be resilient; however, you can only use it with
NuPoint Messenger Release 10 or later voice mail systems.

Features
Features supported by protocols
The following tables summarize the features supported by QSIG and PRI protocols:
QSIG
The following table lists features supported by QSIG.
Feature
Description
QSIG Calling Name
Allows the system to send and receive the name of the caller; in turn, the called
party will see the name of the caller on the telephone display screen if the
appropriate Class of Service options are set.
QSIG Call Forwarding and
Diversion
Incoming calls are diverted to another destination as defined by the user when
the service is activated. This includes:
• QSIG Call Forward Busy
• QSIG Call Deflection
• QSIG Call Forward No Reply
• QSIG Call Forward Unconditional.
QSIG Message Waiting
Indication
Users can set or cancel message waiting indications on the set of another party
to indicate that they wish to be called back.
QSIG Call Transfer
A user can connect two other calls together, of the same basic service, as a new
call (there must be three parties). This feature does not support placing a party
on soft hold before making an enquiry call to another. This feature maps to the
Transfer portion of the MSDN/DPNSS Call Hold and Three-Party Working
Service.
QSIG Callback (Call
Completion)
Users can request a Callback when they reach a busy or unanswered station.
Callback with service retention is supported for the following Call Completion
Supplementary Services:
Completion of Calls to Busy Subscribers (SS-CCBS): users can set a Callback
against a busy station.
Completion of Calls on No Reply (SS-CCNR): users can set a Callback against
a station that doesn't answer.
Call Offer
Users can offer calls to parties at a busy destination. The busy user receives
indication of a call offer, while the calling party receives indication that a call offer
has been invoked. The called user has the choice of clearing the current call and
being re-rung, putting their current call on hold and accepting the offered call, or
ignoring the offered call.
Path Replacement
Active calls, connected through the Q.SIG network, can be replaced with new
connections which are more efficient or cost effective (when possible). The
originating system requests the path replacement and the terminating system
makes the optimized call. None of the existing call path is used when path
replacement occurs. There must be an established call (a call that has been
answered) before this feature is invoked.

Features
Notes:
1. Does not support Interrogation. It is a way to determine the call forwarding status of a remote
phone.
2. Only supports Originator Requesting Path Replace. Either end may ask for the route
optimization but Mitel only supports this for the originator. It is recommended that the route
optimization timer on the Mitel switch be set to a shorter time than the other side so that the
Mitel switch initiates the optimization request.
3. Only supported without path retention. Path retention retains the connection between two PBXs
so that a supplementary service can be invoked without establishing a new connection. This
method holds up a trunk resource and is not supported.
4. Does not support MWI interrogate function. It is a way to determine the message waiting lamp
status of a remote phone.
5. Does not support connection retention. Connection retention holds up a virtual call between the
two end-points. Mitel supports path reservation which ensures that resources are available
when User B can accept User A’s call and service retention in that the call is compelled to
complete.
PRI
The following table lists features supported by PRI.
Feature
Description
ANI/DNIS/ISDN Number
Delivery
Automatic Number Identification and Dialed Number Identification Service
identify numbers that are transmitted on an incoming trunk.
Call-by-call Service
With Call-by-Call Service, access channels do not have to be dedicated to
specific services such as OUTWATS or 800 services.
This enables the customer to reduce facilities and integrate dedicated and
switched, inbound and outbound, voice and data traffic on a single facility. It also
allows a business with calling peaks to dynamically allocate coverage across
channels so that access lines are optimized.
This implementation ensures that incoming calls are not turned away because
all incoming channels are busy while adjacent outgoing channels are idle.
Calling Line Identification
The telephone number of the calling party is transmitted to the Mitel PBX and
can be sent to devices within the system.
E-911 Support
Displays indicate the extension and the location of the person who dialled 911.
Notifications of 911 calls are audible, continuous and distinct from regular
ringing patterns when the set is idle and on hook. If the user is already on a call,
a new call tone alerts the user to the alarm condition. The alarm overrides sets
having DND enabled.
159
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
MSDN/DPNSS
The following table lists features supported by MSDN/DPNSS.
Feature
Description
Callback
Allows you to request that the system notify you when a busy line becomes idle or
when an unanswered station goes off-hook and on-hook.
Call Forward
Allows you to redirect incoming calls to an alternate number.
Calling Line Identification The telephone number of the calling party is transmitted to the Mitel PBX and can be
sent to devices within the system.
Camp-on (Call Waiting)
Allows you to notify a busy party that you are waiting. An attendant may also put a
call through to a busy station to indicate that a call is waiting. Upon hearing the Call
Waiting tone, the busy party can either respond or finish the current call.
Call Split
See Conference Split.
Conference
Allows you to connect three or more calls into a single telephone conversation. While
you are in a Conference, you can use any of the features that would normally be
available during a two-party call.
Conference Split
Allows you to separate a 3-party conference so that two of the parties can speak
privately, while the other is placed on Consultation Hold.
Do Not Disturb
Allows you to place your set in an apparent busy condition without affecting the
outgoing functionality. If someone calls your set while DND is activated, they hear a
special busy tone.
SMDR -External
Collects data for outgoing and incoming trunk calls.
SMDR -Internal
Collects data for calls made between stations within the system.
Recall
Allows an incoming caller, who has been transferred to an idle station and not
answered within a specified time-out period, call back the last party who handled the
call. Similar time-out recalls occur for parties who are transferred to busy stations or
placed on hold.
Tandem Trunking
The system can transparently interconnect trunk circuits originating from one CO or
PBX and terminating on another (tandem trunking), without attendant intervention.
Trunk Select - Direct
Allows you to access an outside trunk for the purposes of originating and receiving
external calls. Because the trunk is assigned to a line appearance, you can access
the trunk to make or answer calls without trunk access codes.
Override
Allows you to enter a conversation at a busy station or ring a station with Do Not
Disturb activated. Before you enter the conversation, all parties receive a warning
tone.
Serial Call
Allows a centralized attendant to set up serial calls for users on remote PBXs.
Route Optimization
Replaces non-optimal call routing with routings that use the fewest number of
network channels.
Hold on Hold
Allows a person on a two party call to temporarily suspend the telephone call. While
the call is on hold, the person that placed the call is able to use other telephone
features. The call can be retrieved from the telephone that placed the call or from
another telephone.
Direct Page
Allows you to page another telephone over its built-in speaker.
See Off-Hook Voice Announce.
Networked Group Page
160
Group Paging can be completed across a network or network cluster, allowing, for
example, a set on system A to page a specific group on system B.
Features
Security Features
Encrypted Media Path and Signaling Path
Encrypted media and signaling path is supported for all Mitel’s IP phones. The media path
encryption is accomplished with Secure RTP using 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard
(AES). Encryption is backwards compatible to support both currently shipping desktops as well
as previously deployed Mitel IP desktops. Mitel provides encryption of the signaling path
between multiple MCD systems using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. This allows
scalability of applications by configuring MCD systems into clusters or deploying them as part
of a centrally managed but distributed architecture.
Phone and User Authentication
Mitel implements phone authentication that requires a unique association of MAC addresses
and IP and user-entered PIN registration numbers. Additionally, desktop software downloads
are encrypted. Mitel also provides 802.1X authentication for desktops (Release 6.0 and later)
which offers support for the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) using EAP-MD5 challenge
authentication to a RADIUS Server.
Worm and Virus Protection
MCD uses an embedded real time operating system. This system is less susceptible to virus
or worm attacks that target traditional applications and their OS services because it provides
a very small base of common functionality with general purpose operating systems. This lack
of common functionality means that VxWorks is not affected by the viruses and worms typically
found on networks and the Internet. This also makes it difficult for an attacker to write a virus
targeted at generic VxWorks implementations.
Application servers based on Windows NT/2000 must be properly maintained with regard to
current operating system security updates. Mitel products based on Windows NT/2000 include
the Contact Center Solutions, Speech Server and Messaging Server systems and Enterprise
Manager. These key application servers must be maintained with the latest in Microsoft security
updates and worm protection.
Prevention of Toll Abuse
Any communication system that has a combination of Direct Inward System Access (DISA)
integrated auto attendant or RAD groups and peripheral interfaced auto attendant or voice mail
can be susceptible to toll abuse. Therefore it is important to assign appropriate telephone
privileges and restrictions to devices. In addition, public telephones should be denied toll access
unless authorized through an attendant.
MCD has comprehensive toll control built in. It lets you restrict user access to trunk routes
and/or specific external directory numbers. It also provides Class of Restriction (COR) and
Class of Service (COS) features that can substantially reduce the risk of toll abuse.
161
Mitel Communications Director - General Information Guide
As a deterrent to toll abuse by internal callers, Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR) can
be used to track calls from within your company, providing detailed information such as the
originating extension number, time, duration, and number dialed. SMDR record access should
be restricted as with any other function.
Secure Management Interfaces
MCD includes a fully integrated set of management tools designed to install, manage, and
administer MCD systems. Three levels of access are provided in order to meet the needs of
system technicians, group administrators, and the desktop telephony users themselves. All of
these integral management tools use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security for data encryption.
User access to the management tools is controlled by a login and password. Once a user logs
into an MCD, the system displays a menu of the specific tools to which they have been granted
access.
Mitel also offers the Management Access Point to provide secure remote administration for
VPN or dial-up access.
Secure Applications
Mitel addresses application security via:
•
Your Assistant - Provides a softphone with encrypted call path and call signaling as well
as secure instant messaging to keep IM traffic encrypted and inside the network.
•
Wireless Solutions - Includes secure IP-DECT solution (EMEA) and encryption for 802.11b
wireless telephony, support for encryption using Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and authentication using WPA and WPA2.
•
XML Implementation - Supports encryption of all traffic using standard SSL and provides
strong certificate-based authentication for API use.
SIP Security
Mitel SIP desktops support secure RTP and also satisfy the PROTOS test suite for CERT
advisory CA-2003-06. The SIP desktops also provide support for firewall traversal and
SSL-encrypted SIP.
