CHAPTER 2
System & Network Requirements
System Requirements
• AltiWare OE 4.5A IP-PBX or higher
Note: A lower version of AltiWare may cause the IP phone to lose
several advanced features, resulting in use as a very basic
H.323 phone.
• AltiGen OE 4.5A Gatekeeper (to support Plug and Play functionality)
Network Requirements
• Network connection — the IP phone must have TCP/IP connection to
the related AltiWare OE 4.5A or higher.
• DHCP Server (to get dynamically IP address when necessary)
• TFTP Server (to update the IP phone firmware when necessary)
• GATEKEEPER (for Plug and Play feature)
AltiAdmin Configuration Requirements
•
The Alti-IP 600 requires a virtual extension to be created as an IP
extension in AltiAdmin to handle call processing. Refer to the
AltiWare OE 4.5A Supplement and the “Setting Up IP Extensions”
chapter in the AltiWare OE 4.5/4.6 or ACM 4.6 System Administration
Manual for detailed instructions on how to set up an IP Extension to
manage the IP phone.
•
The IP Phone settings must be pre-configured in AltiAdmin before
setting up configuration for the Alti-IP 600.
Alti-IP 600 Administration Manual 5
AltiGen IP Phone Service
Introduced in AltiWare OE 4.5A, AltiGen IP Phone Service is installed
together with AltiServ, runs on the same system as AltiServ, and connects
to AltiServ through enhanced AltiLink+ protocol on behalf of Alti-IP 600
phones. This service must be running for the Alti-IP 600 to operate. If IP
Phone Service stops while the Alti-IP 600 is on a call, the call will be
disconnected.
Plug and Play Feature
The Alti-IP 600 supports a plug and play feature when running AltiWare.
When the phone is first booted up, this feature will enable the phone to
automatically register itself to AltiServ, instead of having to program the
phone manually. Refer to “Configuring Startup Network Settings” on page
12 for requirements and setup.
Note:
The Plug and Play feature requires AltiGateKeeper Discovery and
a single gatekeeper on the LAN.
Basic Mode
The Alti-IP 600 operates in Basic mode if it fails to register with AltiWare
during the startup mode. When in basic mode, the IP Phone’s LCD display
shows “(BASIC) IDLE”. No AltiWare switching features are available
in this operating mode. However, the phone user can enter a destination IP
address followed by #, and make an outgoing call through the IP network
to reach AltiWare or another Alti-IP 600 phone. Also, the IP phone can
accept incoming calls originating from AltiWare or another Alti-IP 600
phone.
Normal Operation
In normal operating mode, the Alti-IP 600 should have been registered with
the phone server and logged in as an extension. The time and extension
appear in the LCD screen and all phone features are enabled.
Note: To make the Alti-IP 600 work in normal operating mode, open the
firewall port 10032 for the phone server. Refer to the AltiWare OE
4.5A Supplement or AltiWare OE 4.5/4.6 or ACM 4.6 System
Administration Manual for information on other firewall ports for
H.323.

Corresponds to the 10 soft keys on the Alti-IP 600. Use the
drop down list to assign one of the following functions to the
desired keys:
• Disabled - when selected, the corresponding soft key
cannot be used.
• BLF (Busy Lamp Field) - when selected, enter an
extension number in the field below; this will be
associated with the corresponding soft key to
automatically dial this extension number; the button light
next to this soft key indicates that the extension number
is busy. You can select the Play Beep Tone check box to
also have the IP phone play an audible beep when the
extension number is ringing.
Note: The BLF feature can only be used for internal
extension numbers, not outside numbers.
• Feature Code - when selected, enter an AltiServ feature
code in the field below; this will be associated with the
corresponding soft key to dial this feature code.
• Speed Dial - when selected, enter the speed dial code in
the field below; this will be associated with the
corresponding soft key to dial this speed dial code.
• Phone Setting - when selected, the IP phone user will be
able to program the corresponding soft key, as a speed
dial or feature code key, directly from the IP phone (using
* * 6, then ENTER).
Note: Upon initial installation, the lower left soft key is set
up as FLASH by default. This key can be re-assigned
in the AltiGen IP Phone Configuration window.
No other soft keys can be configured to FLASH. All
other soft keys are initially defaulted to Phone
Setting.
Alti-IP 600 Administration Manual 9
Parameter
Description
General
Allows you to specify the IP address of the AltiServ system
the Alti-IP 600 phone is connected to. The version of
software associated with AltiServ is automatically displayed
in the Version field.
To allow the extension user to have password-protected
configuration functionality from the phone itself, check the
Enable Config Password checkbox and assign a numerical
password. When the extension user attempts to configure
features, the user will need to enter the assigned password to
proceed.
H.323
Allows you to set the Jitter Buffer in milliseconds, the delay
used to buffer voice packets received from the IP network.
The Jitter Buffer should be adjusted according to the WAN
bandwidth allocated to data traffic.
To allow NAT support for the IP extension, check the
Enable NAT button and enter the public IP address of the
NAT router.
TFTP
Allows you to assign the TFTP Server to which the IP phone
can connect to for updating firmware when necessary. Enter
the IP address of the TFTP Server in the Server field. Check
the Reset IP Phone and Boot Download checkbox options
to reset or reboot the phone, respectively.
Debug
When enabled, allows the Alti-IP 600 phone to connect to
Telnet for debugging.
Important:When updating the Alti-IP 600 phone’s firmware, it is
recommended that administrators perform any updates after
normal business hours or when the IP phone is not in use. If the
Alti-IP 600 phone is in use during an update, the call will be
disconnected.
Alti-IP 600 Administration Manual
10
Notes:
• IMPORTANT! Please note that the configuration in AltiWare will
override the Alti-IP 600 phone’s local configuration after the IP
Phone is registered. If the IP phone’s local configuration is changed
while in Basic mode, these changes will be overwritten by
AltiAdmin/ACM Admin settings. Also, after the IP Phone is
successfully registered with the system, the IP phone will overwrite
the AltiWare IP address and network-related settings on the server.
• IMPORTANT! When updating the Alti-IP 600 phone’s firmware,
it is recommended that administrators perform any updates after
normal business hours or when the IP phone is not in use. If the AltiIP 600 phone is in use during an update, the call will be
disconnected.
• The Apply To button works with the following parameters:
General, H.323, TFTP (Server field only; Reset IP Phone and
Boot Download options cannot be applied to multiple extensions),
and Debug.
• This only works when the Alti-IP 600 is operating in basic mode.
3.
Set Up Alti-IP 600 Connections
You must connect the Alti-IP 600 to the network and to a power source
before using it.
Notes:
• When the Alti-IP 600 is booted up without the PC port plugged in,
the PC port defaults to 10Mbps.
• If the PC port is to be used, the user should plug in both the LAN
port and PC port before the IP phone is booted.
• The user should reboot the Alti-IP 600 under any of the following
conditions:
— after disconnecting the LAN cable to the phone
— after changing the IP address or DHCP setting
— after rebooting the PC
Note: If the PC is rebooted during a connected call, the voice
path will be interrupted for 4-5 seconds to reinitialize the
TCP/IP protocol stack.

mode
• Check network connectivity by pinging from
AltiServ to the IP Phone.
• Check if IP Phone Service is running.
• Check if there is a duplicate IP address by
unplugging the Ethernet cable on the IP Phone,
then pinging the Alti-IP 600 phone’s IP
address.
• Check the extension’s IP address in AltiAdmin
to find out if another user is trying to login
using the same extension number.
• Use #27 + ENTER to login again and see if
problem persists.
No IP Address
• Check if DHCP is enabled. If YES, check
network connection. If NO, check DHCP
Server setting.
• Check if Alti-IP 600 phone’s IP address is
configured.

Poor voice quality.
• Make sure a switch is used, rather than a hub,
in the corporate LAN.
• G.711 provides better voice quality.
• If VoIP is set up over WAN, set priority
queuing on the WAN router.
• Make sure WAN QoS is okay by pinging a few
hundred packets from remote site and observe
packet loss and network latency.
• Adjust jitter buffer to accommodate network
latency.
Register failed.
• Check to make sure the extension number and
extension password is set up properly and that
the IP extension is enabled.
• Check to make sure the IP Phone Services is
started in AltiWare.
• If IP Phone is associated with a physical phone
(with the same extension number), use #27 to
activate the IP Phone to normal operating
mode.
