IP DECT:
1. IP DECT
The DECT over IP system comprises the following components:
· IP DECT Base Stations
These are connected to the LAN. Up to 32 base stations are supported for IP Office, with each able to host up to 8
simultaneous calls. Different models of bases station are available for indoor and outdoor location usage, using
either mains outlet power or Power over Ethernet (PoE). The base stations use G711, G723.1 and G729ab on the
LAN side.
· Avaya DECT Mobility Manager (ADMM)
One base station is used as the management interface to the IP DECT network. This base station is referred to
as the ADMM. It is managed using network access from a web browser.
· Licensing
The IP DECT system is licensed through entry of a license key into the IP DECT system configuration. The
license controls the number of base stations supported.
· IP Office Control Unit
The IP Office, ADMM and the IP Base Stations communicate across the LAN infrastructure. The IP DECT Base
Stations and the IP DECT phones communicate wirelessly.
· Voice Compression Channels
The control unit must be fitted with voice compression channels. A channel is required for all calls between an
IP DECT phone and a non-IP device such as external trunks and non-IP phones. Calls between an IP DECT
phone and other IP devices typically only require a channel during call setup. Refer to the IP Office Installation
Manual for full details of fitting voice compression channels and when channels are used.
· TFTP Server
Whenever the IP DECT base stations restart, they need to upload IP DECT application software from a TFTP
server. The IP Office Manager application is not supported for this function. An IP Office control unit with an
embedded voicemail memory card is only recommended for a small number (3 to 5) of base stations. For higher
numbers a 3rd party TFTP server application is required.
· IP DECT Phones
A maximum of 120 IP DECT phones are supported, with up to a maximum of 100 simultaneous calls (subject to
available base stations and IP Office voice compression channels if required).
· GAP Compatible
In addition to supported Avaya IP DECT phones, basic call functionality is supported for GAP compatible DECT
phones.

15-601085 Issue 04f (11 June 2009)
Additional Components
In addition to the components above, the IP DECT system can utilize the following additional services:
· LDAP or TFTP Server
A directory of telephone numbers can be retrieved from an LDAP or TFTP server and displayed on IP DECT
handsets. With IP Office, the IP Office control unit can act as the TFTP server source for its own user numbers and
external directory numbers.
· SysLog Server
The IP DECT base stations can output SysLog events to a SysLog server.
· SNMP
The IP DECT base stations support SNMP for system status and alarm event logging.
· SNTP Server
Used by the IP DECT system to obtain the time and date.
Regional Support
For areas outside North America where IP DECT is available, it is supported on IP Office 3.1 and higher. For North
America, IP DECT is supported on IP Office 4.0 May 2007 maintenance release and higher. Note however that IP DECT
Base stations and phones for different regions are not compatible. Additionally the optional directional beam aerials for
the RFP34 base station are not supported in North America.

IP DECT:
1.1 Base Stations
When used with IP Office, the IP DECT supports up to 32 base stations. One base station is designated during installation
as the Avaya DECT Mobility Manager (ADMM) and is used to configure and control the IP DECT system. Note that a base
station is also called a Radio Fixed Part or RFP.
The following types of base station are supported for use with IP Office:
· RFP31: Indoor Base Station
No longer available and not supported in North America. This base station is for indoor use only. It has integral
aerials and can be powered by either a mains adapter or by 802.3af Power over Ethernet supply.
· RFP32: Indoor Base Station
This base station is for indoor use only. It has integral aerials and can be powered by either a mains adapter or by
802.3af Power over Ethernet supply. For Australia and New Zealand the mains adaptor is not currently supported.
· RFP33: Outdoor Base Station
No longer available and not supported in North America. This base station can be used outdoors or indoors. The
outdoor IP Base Station can only be powered by 802.3af Power over Ethernet.
· RFP34: Outdoor Base Station
This base station can be used outdoors or indoors. The outdoor IP Base Station can only be powered by 802.3af
Power over Ethernet.

Encryption
Each base station can handle simultaneous calls for up to 8 DECT phones at any time. Additional phones will connect to
the next nearest base station with sufficient signal strength if it has available capacity.
Groups of IP Base Station are called clusters. Within a Cluster, IP Base Stations are synchronized to enable a seamless
hand over when a user crosses from one IP Base Station’s zone of coverage to another. For synchronization, it is not
necessary for an IP Base Station to communicate directly with all other IP Base Stations in the system. Each IP Base
Station only needs to be able to communicate with the next IP Base Station in the chain. It is preferable for an IP Base
Station to see more than one IP Base Station to guarantee synchronization in the event that one of the IP Base Stations
fails.
Power over Ethernet Support
All the base stations can be used with Power over Ethernet (PoE). They are classified as Class 0 devices. Note that the
Avaya 1151 MidSpan Power Unit should not be used to provide power.

Aerials
By default all the base stations are supplied with omni-directional aerials. For the RFP31 and RFP32 base stations the
aerials are integral and cannot be changed. For the RFP33 and RF34, the aerials are connected by TNC connectors and
can be replaced with beam or dipole aerials. The use of beam aerials is not supported in North America. The use of thirdparty aerials is not supported by Avaya.
RFP31
This base station is for indoor use only. It has integral omni-directional aerials and can be powered by either a mains
adapter or by 802.3af Power over Ethernet supply. The RFP31 has a single multi-colour LED that shows the different

1.4 Licensing
The IP DECT solution requires a license entered into the main base station's (ADMM) configuration in order to operate.
This license is based on a number of factors:
· A transaction ID supplied when ordering the IP DECT system.
· A serial number generated from the MAC addresses of some of the base systems within the IP DECT system.
· The number of base station MAC addresses used for this varies with the total number of base stations needed
with the system.
· The base stations used for licensing must remain in the system. If any one should fail or be temporarily
remove, the capacity of the system may be reduced.
The following table summarizes the number of base stations licensed and the number required to validate the license.

Plug and Play Licensing
For IP DECT firmware 1.1.9 and higher, a simplified method of licensing is supported using pre-licensed RFP32 and RFP34
base station kits. These kits allow easier installation and upgrades by removing the need to separately obtain and
licenses based on the MAC addresses of selected base stations.
For initial installation, a pre-licensed and ready to go two RFP32 base-station kit is available. Additionally pre-licensed
base station upgrade kits (RFP32 and RFP34) are available that can be added to the system. When up to 8 plug and play
base stations are present, the number of bases station supported in total is up to 32).
Both license mechanisms (manually obtained licenses based on base station MAC addresses and 'plug and play') can be
mixed.

1.5 System Capacities
The maximum number of simultaneous calls is limited by the number of VCM channels of the IP Office and the channels
of the IP Base Stations. The maximum number of simultaneous calls can also be affected by the direct media
configuration in the IP Office Manager.
Base Stations
The IP DECT base stations have the following capacity.
· Up to a maximum of 32 base stations are supported.
· 1 base station must be set as the ADMM. This does not affect the base stations call handling. However this base
station must remain in the system at all time for the IP DECT system to be operational.
· Each base station can support up to 8 simultaneous calls to/from DECT phones.
· Additional calls are only possible if another base station with free capacity and with appropriate signal strength is
within range.
IP DECT Phones
The IP DECT system supports the following phone capacity when used with IP Office:
· Up to 120 IP DECT phones are supported.
· Up to 100 IP DECT phones can be active simultaneously.
· It is recommended that no more than 50 handsets are active simultaneously if the ADMM base station is also being
used for DECT wireless call connection. If necessary the DECT functions of the ADMM base station can be disabled.
· As detailed above, a maximum of 8 DECT phones can be connected via any single base station at any time.
· The IP DECT system supports GAP compatible DECT handsets. However only basic functions to make and answer
calls are supported on these devices.

IP DECT: System Capacities
1.6 Technical Specification
Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication (DECT)
The standard (ETS 300 175) essentially specifies the air interface, known as the radio interface. Voice and data can both
be transmitted via this interface.
DECT technical characteristics are:
· United States:
· Frequency Range: 1.920 to 1.930 GHz (10MHz bandwidth).
· Carrier Frequencies: 5 (1.728 MHz spacing) with 12 time slots each.
· Transmit Power: 20dBm.
· Maximum transmission power of 4 mW (100 mW peak).
· Europe, Middle East and Asia:
· Frequency Range: 1.880 to 1.900GHz (20MHz bandwidth).
· Carrier Frequencies: 10 (1.728 MHz spacing) with 12 time slots each.
· Transmit Power: 24dBm.
· Maximum transmission power of 10 mW (250 mW peak).
· Doubling the number of time slots using the TDMA process
· Net data rate per channel of 32 kbps for voice transmission using ADPCM.
· Voice coding using the ADPCM method.
Generic Access Profile (GAP)
· The GAP standard (ETS 300 444) is based on the same technology as DECT, but is limited to the most important
basic features. This standard was created in order to allow phones of different vendors to be used on any type of
DECT system. It thus represents the smallest common denominator of all manufacturer-specific variants of the
DECT standard.
· An important limitation in the GAP standard is that external handover is not possible. For this reason connection
handover is used, which is supported by GAP terminals.
· The operation of GAP-capable phones is comparable to that of analogue terminals. For example, features can be
called up via * and # procedures.

1.7 IP DECT Software
The software for installation of an IP DECT system with IP Office is included on the IP Office Administrator Application CD.
The files are located in the folder IPDECT.
The files are as follows (note that the actual file names include version labels which may vary):
File
Description
ADM_Configurator.jar
This is a configuration tool for the static IP address setup of base stations. It requires
the PC to have JVM 1.1.4 (Java Virtual Machine) installed. The simplest way to meet
that requirement is to run the configurator on a PC that has had the IP Office System
Status Application (SSA) installed.
ADMM_RFP.tftp
This is the software file that needs to be uploaded by TFTP to each base station
whenever it restarts.
DECTNetmonitor.exe
This tool can be used to monitor the IP DECT system.
up_avaya_3701.exe
This tool is used to upgrade 3701 phones.
up_avaya_3711.exe
This tool is used to upgrade 3711 phones.

Site Survey and Planning
IP DECT Installation
IP Office
Page 19
15-601085 Issue 04f (11 June 2009)
2. Site Survey and Planning
Coverage In Theory
Given ideal open field conditions, the range between a handset and base station can be up to 600 metres (approximately
2000 feet). However where obstacles absorb signal strength and reflected signals giving increased error rates, the range
is more realistically between 30 metres (98 feet) indoors and 300 metres (984 feet) outdoors.
Coverage In Practice
In practice, no rules or guarantees can be given for base station coverage. Coverage is affected by too many factors that
are unique to each site. The following is a guide to those factors that can affect coverage and should be considered
during any site survey.
· Obvious causes of signals problems:
· Metal surfaces.
· Concrete thickness greater than 1 metre (3 feet).
· Also beware of:
· Windows with Reflective Film or Specialized Glass.
These produce increased signal reflection and reduced signal pass-through.
· Wire Meshes and Grills with Apertures of Less than 4cm (1.5 inches).
These block signals as effectively as continuous metal sheet.
· Fire Doors
These block the signals. In multi-occupancy building such as hotels the high number of fire-doors may be a
problem.
· Stair Wells
In modern office buildings, stair wells frequently combine concrete building supports, fire doors and the
intervening floor material, making them a special problem.
· Screened Rooms
Typically found in offices involved with TV, video and radio production, but also possible in computer centers.
· Empty Sites
Do not perform a survey on a site that is not yet occupied. The survey results will differ from those of the
same site once occupied by the customer business.
· Be Aware of:
· Signal Direction
The signal from a base station does not propagate evenly in all directions. The signal typically propagates
strongest in the horizontal plane. However the ability for a base station to serve callers located on floors
above or below it should not be ignored. This may allow coverage to be extended to areas not frequently used
and so not meriting a dedicated local base station.
· By default all the base stations are omni-directional. For the RFP33 and RF34, the aerials are connected
by TNC connectors and can be replaced with beam or dipole aerials. The use of beam aerials is not
supported in North America. The use of third-party aerials is not supported by Avaya.
· Radio Signals
The ability to receive normal broadcast radio signals in an area is not an indication that DECT signalling will be
received.

Site Survey and Planning:
Performing a Site Survey
We cannot give precise recommendations for a site survey as every site will vary. However a site survey is a prerequisite
to installation in all cases. The correct and effective placement of base stations will prevent problems and maximize
coverage.
Site survey kits are available from Avaya. These contain a specially adapted base station that is able to operate
independently. The kit also includes handsets and necessary chargers.
· While performing a survey you will require the following information:
· Building Layout
Accurate building plans are an essential aid to both the site survey and also for later fault analysis. Ensure
that you have an accurate plan of the customer premises, including the locations of mains power outlets and
network connection points.
· The area of coverage required?
Which areas within the plans the customer expects to be covered. Do they expect coverage outside the
building and or in buildings separate from the main building.
· The number of simultaneous users within different areas?
Each base station can support up to 8 simultaneous calls.
· Perform the survey during normal business hours. The movement of large items of machinery such as lifts will
then be observable during the survey.
· Ensure that you have read this documentation and understand the importance of base station clusters and the
need for wireless synchronization between base stations within a cluster, including the need for redundancy.
· As the survey takes place, note whether additional network connection points will be required and or mains power
outlets. Consider the use of Power over Ethernet, if possible in order to simplify base station installation.
· As a general objective, the signal strength from one base station location to another should not drop below -70
dBm.
Using DECT Handsets for a Site Survey
This function puts the phone in the 'site survey mode'. While in this mode the phone can also receive a call to allow
audible checking of the call quality as you move around the survey area. .

6.
The phone displays the IP Base Stations and the actual field strength of the receiving signal in dBM.
7.
·
RFPI
This line shows the PARK number of the IP DECT system to which the phone is connected.
·
FE
This line shows the frame errors detected by the portable part (PP = the phone) and the fixed part (FP = the
base station to which it is connected). Occasional framing errors are acceptable.
·
-dBM and RPN
These two lines show the signal strength (-dBm) and the Base Station ID (RPN) of the base station providing
each signal. The Base Station ID's match those shown on the IP DECT Base Station screen when accessing the
ADMM web configuration. Note that the signal strength is in negative numbers, for example 70 is a weaker
signal than 50.
To leave site survey mode, switch the phone off and on again.

2.1 Base Station Synchronization
To allow call handover when a caller moves from the coverage area of one base station to another, the base stations
need to exchange synchronization signals. They do this using wireless signalling between the base stations. This therefore
requires the base station coverage areas to overlap.
For one IP base station to synchronize to another IP Base Station, the signal strength cannot drop below –70 dBm. You
must consider this requirement during the site survey.
Within the IP DECT configuration, all base stations in the same physical area with overlapping coverage are configured
with the same 'cluster' number. During system start-up, these base stations exchange synchronization signals with others
in the same cluster until all base stations are synchronized.
If a base station loses the synchronization signal it will not accept new calls until it is able to synchronize again. If the
unsynchronized base station already has active calls, it will delay up to a maximum of 3 minutes before it tries to
synchronize again.
An IP DECT installation is more reliable if each base station can receive the synchronization signals from more than one
other base station in the same cluster. Clusters without multiple synchronization paths can cause problems if a single
base station loses the synchronization signal from its neighbour or needs to be switched off or restarted during
maintenance.
Unreliable Installation
With this layout, the loss of synchronization
signal causes the loss of the base station.
None of the base stations have backup
redundant signalling to other base stations.
Potentially this may cause loss of
synchronization within the whole cluster.
Reliable Installation
With this layout, each base station has
multiple synchronization signal paths to
other base stations in the cluster. The
interruption of any signal path does not
cause loss of synchronization within the
cluster.
Sometimes IP Base Stations do not or cannot be synchronized, for example if they are in different buildings. These base
stations should be configured into separate clusters. This is reasonable so long as users are aware that handover of calls
will not be possible when they move between areas covered by different clusters.

3. Base Station Installation
This section does not cover the physical installation of the base stations, ie. wall mounting and connection of power
supplies. That should be done in accordance with the information provided with the base stations. This section covers the
software configuration of the base stations.
Installation Stages
· TFTP Server Setup
Required to provide software to the IP DECT base stations.
· Base Station IP Address Configuration
The basic settings of IP address and location of the TFTP server are input into the base stations using one of the
following methods.
· Static IP Addressing
· Dynamic (DHCP) IP Addressing using IP Office
· Dynamic (DHCP) IP Addressing using a 3rd Party DHCP Server
· IP DECT Line Creation
An IP DECT line is required in the IP Office configuration. If the IP Office is providing DHCP support for the base
station, this will have been setup as part of the DHCP configuration above.
· ADMM Configuration
Basic configuration of the IP DECT system is required in order for the base stations to connect to each other.
· ADMM Licensing
Once basic ADMM configuration has been completed and all the base stations are connected, the system license
can be obtained and entered.
Prerequisites
· ¨ Site Survey
A site survey must be performed. This may be done as part of the installation or prior to installation. Regardless a
site survey is necessary as most DECT problems will center on base station coverage.
· ¨ Product Knowledge
Ensure that you have read this documentation fully before starting installation.
· ¨ Handset Charging
Handset installation, though performed after base station installation, requires the handset to be charged.
Therefore while base station installation is being performed, ensure that the IP DECT phones are placed into their
charging cradles and are charging.

3.1 TFTP Server Setup
Follows a base station restart or loss of power, each base station retains only its IP address settings (if it has been
statically configured). If not statically configured the base station needs to obtain its IP address settings via DHCP.
In either case the base stations then need to upload from a TFTP server the IP DECT base station software before they
become operational again. Therefore there is a requirement for the IP DECT system to have permanent access to a TFTP
server.
· While the IP Office Manager application can act as a TFTP server it is not recommended for scenarios such as this
where it needs to be left running permanently.
· IP Office control units fitted with Embedded Voicemail memory cards can also act as TFTP servers. However due to
the boot time this is only supported for 3 base stations connected to a Small Office Edition or 5 base stations
connected to an IP406 V2 or IP Office 500 control unit.
· If no existing TFTP server is available, TFTP server software can be downloaded from the Avaya support web site
at http://support.avaya.com.
TFTP Server Setup
1. Check that the PC chosen to run the TFTP server has a fixed IP address.
2. Install and configure the TFTP software as per the software manufacturers instructions.
3. From the IPDECT folder on the IP Office Administrator Applications CD or DVD, copy the file ADMM_RFP_1_1_5.
tftp (version number may vary) to the root directory configured for the TFTP server. If using the Avaya provided
TFTP server software:
· Select System | Setup and select the Outbound tab.
· Set the Outbound file path to the folder location where you placed the software file.
4. From another PC on the LAN test operation of the TFTP server.
· Select Start and then Run.
· Enter cmd.
· In the command line window enter tftp -i 192.168.42.203 get ADMM_RFP_1_1_5.tftp, substituting the IP
address of the TFTP server and the file name that matches the .tftp file placed on the TFTP server.
· The response should be Transfer successful. Note: Transfer will fail with can't write to local file if the
transfer file is already present in the folder part from which the command is being executed.
5. Proceed to base station installation.

7. Click on the Gateway tab.
· In the Gateway IP Address field, enter the IP address of the ADMM base station.
· The remaining fields should only be changed from their defaults if required. Their functions are described
below:
· Compression Mode
Select the compression mode from the drop down list.
· Gain
This field allows the audio signal strength for calls between the IP Office and IP DECT extension to be
adjusted.
· Silence Suppression
When selected, H.323 terminals will not send data if they are silent, this is useful when optimizing data
traffic.
· Allow Direct Media Path
When disabled, the media (voice) path always passes through the IP Office Unit. When enabled, the
remote end may be told of a new IP address for the media path if, for example, the call is transferred to
a H.323 extension. Enabling this option may cause some vendors problems with changing the media path
mid call.
· Auto-Create Extension
If enabled, when an IP DECT handset is subscribed to the ADMM, extension and user entries are
automatically created in the IP Office configuration.
· Enable DHCP Support
The IP Office can be used to provide DHCP. If that is the case for a customer network, the IP Office can
also provide DHCP support for IP DECT base stations.

5.3 IP DECT Base Stations
This menu lists all configured IP DECT base stations including the ADMM base station.
· Clusters
To ensure the hand over of a phone between base stations during a call, all base in a physical area need to
synchronize with each other by exchanging wireless signals. See Base Station Synchronization 22 . This is achieved
by placing the IP Base Stations sufficiently close to each other that each base station is in range of at least one
other base station. There may be cases where the base stations on one part of the LAN network are not in
synchronization range of the other base stations. Each group of base stations needs to be given a cluster number.
The ADMM will then not try to synchronize groups of base stations that are not within range of each other.
1. Using a web browser login to the ADMM base station.
2. From the Home menu select IP DECT Base Stations
3. The base stations are grouped into their configured clusters and sorted by their Ethernet addresses.
· The IP DECT Station running ADMM is displayed in bold font.
· Each IP Base Station is identified by its Ethernet address (6 byte hex format, colon separated). The Ethernet
address is unique and can be found on the back of the chassis.
· The
icon indicates a base stations whose MAC address has been entered into the Licensing 84 menu as
part of the IP DECT systems licensing. Removal or loss of communication with such a base station will affect
operation of the whole IP DECT system.
· The Active and Synchronous fields are used to indicate the state of operation of base stations. See the
table below.
4. A base station can be deleted by pressing the trash icon
. However, the IP Base Station running ADMM cannot
be deleted. Caution should be taken not to delete base stations that have been used as part of the systems
licensing or which are providing a synchronization signal to another base station that does not have a alternate
base station with which to synchronize.
5. New base stations are added by clicking on New. Similarly existing base stations can be edited by clicking on the
icon. Note that base stations cannot be added until the IP Regions
68
have been added to the configuration.
· MAC Address
This is normally printed on a label on the base station. The MAC address of existing connected base stations
cannot be changed.
· Location
This is used for information only. It allows you to note where the base station is physically located. The string
be up to 20 characters.
IP DECT Installation

Page 69
15-601085 Issue 04f (11 June 2009)
· IP Region
The IP region with which the base station operates. The regions need to be created before the base station
can be assigned.
· DECT Settings
This option can be used to disable the DECT service of a base station. This option is used chiefly for the ADMM
base station. If the ADMM is used for DECT, up to 50 simultaneous calls are supported on the IP DECT
system. If the ADMM base station is not providing DECT, up to 100 simultaneous calls are supported on the IP
DECT system.
· DECT Cluster
This is the physical area cluster to which the base station belongs. All the base station in the cluster should be
given the same number. The ADMM base station uses this value to determine which base station should
synchronize with each other.

ADMM Web Access: IP DECT Base Stations
IP DECT Base Station States
For each IP Base Station the state of the DECT subsystem is displayed. The states are:
· Synchronous
The IP Base Station is up and running. The IP Base Station recognises and is recognised by other IP Base Stations
in its cluster through its air interface and delivers a synchronous clock signal to the phones.
· Asynchronous but active
The IP DECT Base Station has not been able to synchronize to its neighbours yet. No DECT communication is
possible, nevertheless the IP Base Station has already been able to connect the ADMM. This phase should only last
for a few seconds after starting up the IP Base Station or the ADMM. If this state lasts longer, it maybe an
indication of a hardware or network failure.
· Searching
The IP Base Station has lost synchronization to its neighbours. No DECT communication is possible. This phase
should only last for a few seconds after starting up the IP Base Station or the ADMM. If this state lasts longer or is
re-entered after being in a synchronous state, it maybe an indication of a bad location of the IP Base Station.
· Inactive
The IP Base Station is connected to the ADMM but the air interface has not been switched on yet. For any IP Base
Station with activated DECT functionality, this phase should last only for a few seconds after starting up the IP
Base Station. If this state lasts longer, it may indicate a hardware failure.
· Not connected
The IP Base Station was configured but has not connected to the ADMM yet.
The IP address column displays the current IP address of an IP Base Station.
ADMM/Base Station Software Version Check
All base stations within the IP DECT system must run the same version of software as the ADMM base station. When the
Base Stations connect to the ADMM they submit their software version. If this version differs from the ADMM software
version the Base Station connection attempt is rejected.
This could happen when using several DHCP servers with different IP DECT software versions. In this case the Base
Station is marked with an error message. Moreover a global error message is displayed on the IP Base Station list web
page if at least one version mismatch has been found.
Upgrading the ADMM\Base Station Software
The latest version of the software can be found on the Administration CD.
1. Backup the ADMM configuration using the System | Backup
67
menu.
2. Install the upgrade software on the TFTP server.
3. If using DHCP amend the DHCP settings to match the new software file name. If the base stations were statically
configured, use the ADMM Configurator tool to amend the file name stored by each base station.
4. Restart the ADMM. The TFTP server will upgrade the ADMM at startup.
5. Restart any existing IP Base Stations.
6. Through the IP DECT Base Stations menu check that there are no software version conflicts.

DECT Monitor Notes
When all links have been established, the DECT data of the system are automatically read out and entered in the tables
RFP-Table and PP-Table. This procedure is called Config Request.
Next, the defined trace options (Event Mask) are sent to the ADMM. The options which are sent to the ADMM are always
those which were active the last time the program was exited.
If the trace option Transaction establish/release is activated, the ADMM will deliver all existing transactions.
The ADMM system delivers the desired trace data. The user can either communicate with the program interactively (see
below) or activate a log file in which to record the data.
Following this initialization, the user can carry out the following modifications:
· The trace settings can be modified using the menu item Options-Event Mask. Transmission to the ADMM takes
place after confirmation of the settings with OK.
· A Config Request can be sent again to the ADMM.
· A log file can be activated.
· By means of various dialogues, the configuration data of the PPs, RFPs and control modules can be displayed and
stored in ASCII files.
The following information is displayed dynamically in the tables:
· Transactions between PP and PABX system. These are displayed in both tables. Simple transactions are displayed
in black on a white background; during hand over, both transactions involved are displayed in white on a red
background.
· The Location Registration and Detach events are displayed in the tables for approximately 1-2s after their
occurrence (light green background), if possible. There is no display in the FP table if there is no column free for
display. If the event has already been displayed, it can be overwritten at any time. The events are not displayed if
they occur during an on-going transaction. Irrelevant of whether the events are displayed in the tables, they are
always entered in the FP/PP-events window and in the log file (provided that this is open).
The following colour scheme is used for display of the RFP in the RFP table:
· RFP grey-blue
RFP is not active (not connected or disturbance).
· RFP black
RFP is active.
The data of an RFP is displayed in a dialogue box after clicking on the respective RFP field in the RFP table. The statistics
data of the RFP can be called up from this dialogue box.
The following colour scheme is used for display of the PP in the PP table:
· PP black
PP is enrolled. It is assumed that the PP can be reached.
· PP blue
PP can presumably not be reached. Detach was received, or when an attempt was made to reach a PP, the PP did
not answer.
· PP grey-blue
PP not enrolled.
The data of a PP is displayed in a dialogue box after clicking on the respective PP field in the PP table.
The Sync Info child window contains all IP Base Stations and shows their synchronization and relation states to each
other. Selecting the IP Base Stations with the right mouse button the user can change visibility views and can even force
a re-synchronization of an IP Base Station.
There are several optional child windows selectable. They are all listed below and give some more information about the
IP DECT systems. Mostly they are statistics and for internal use only.

6.3 SMNP
In order to manage a large network of IP DECT Base Stations, an SNMP agent is offered in each IP DECT Base Station.
· The SNMP agent responds to SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c read requests for the standard MIB-II objects.
· The agent supports both SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c traps ('coldStart', 'nsNotifyShutdown', 'authenticationFailure’ and
'nsNotifyRestart').
· Decoding SNMP messages with your network management system or MIB browser always requires the publicly
available IETF MIB definitions which can be downloaded.
SNMP Management Information
The SNMP agent responds to SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c read requests for the standard MIB-II objects. The MIB-II contains
11 object groups, see MIB_II.
· sysLocation corresponds to the location configured via web service. If this location is not configured sysLocation is
set to “Location”.
· sysName is composed of MAC address and “IP Base Station” or “ADMM IP DECT Base Station” if the ADMM is
running on this IP Base Station.
· sysUpTime - This value indicates the running time of the IP Base Station application software. It does not indicate
the running time of the operating system which does not correspond to the operational IP Base Station state. This
value does not make a statement about the DECT network.
SNMP Traps
The agent supports both SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c traps.
· It sends a 'coldStart' trap when it first starts up.
· It sends an enterprise-specific trap 'nsNotifyShutdown' when it stops.
· It send an 'authenticationFailure' trap when it receives an SNMP request using an unknown community name.
· It send an enterprise-specific trap 'nsNotifyRestart' after being reconfigured. This is instead of the standard
'coldStart' or 'warmStart' traps.
Decoding SNMP messages with your network management system or MIB browser always requires the publicly available
IETF MIB definitions.
· RFC1213-MIB
· RFC1212-MIB
· RFC1155-SMI
· SNMPv2-MIB
· SNMPv2-CONF
· SNMPv2-TC
· SNMPv2-SMI.
Enterprise-specific traps can be decoded using the definitions in:
· NET-SNMP-MIB
· NET-SNMP-AGENT-MIB.

6.4 Syslog Output
The ADMM and the IP Base Stations are capable of propagating syslog messages conforming to RFC 3164. This feature
together with the IP address of a host collecting these messages can be configured.
The output of Syslog events is enabled using one of the following methods:
· DHCP using public option 227 and 228.
· Local configuration via the ADMM Configurator tool.
· Setting syslog daemon server and port via ADMM base station web access.
Setting Syslog via DHCP or ADMM Configurator has the advantage that Syslog output is available in earlier states of IP
Base Station start up.
The level of syslog messages in the default state allows the user, to have information on the general state of the system
and major failures. To increase the level for diagnostic reasons, it can be done via telnet user shell by increasing the SPY
level of subsystems.
You can also read syslogs if you type the command logread within Telnet user shell.

7. Appendix
7.1 DHCP Server Operation
A third-party DHCP server can be used to provide the IP address information required by the IP DECT base stations. The
table below indicates the information that can be provided through DHCP.
Option
Usage
Notes
–
IP Address
Mandatory
The IP address is taken from the yiaddr field in the DHCP
message.
–
Netmask
Mandatory
The IP netmask is taken from the subnet mask option (code 1).
–
Gateway
Mandatory
The default gateway is taken from the router option (code 3).
–
Boot file name
Mandatory
The boot image filename is taken from the file field in the DHCP
message. If this field is empty, the default filename iprfp.bin is
used.
–
TFTP server
Mandatory
The TFTP server IP address is taken from the siaddr field in the
DHCP message.
6
Domain Name Server
Optional
This option specifies the Domain Name System Servers available
to the client in order of preference. The minimum length for this
option is 4 octets, and the length must always be a multiple of 4.
15
Domain Name
Optional
This option specifies the domain name that the client should use
when resolving hostnames via the Domain Name System. The
minimum length is 1.
42
Network Time Protocol
Server
Optional
This option specifies by IP address the NTP servers available to
the client in order of preference. The minimum length is 4 octets
and the length must always be a multiple of 4.
224
Magic String
Mandatory
The value of this option must be OpenMobility.
225
VLAN ID
Optional
Public option 225 (code 225) with a length of 2 bytes is
interpreted as VLAN ID. If this option is present the booter will
start over with releasing the current lease and issuing a new
DHCP REQUEST, now using VLAN.
226
ADMM IP Address
Mandatory
The value is interpreted as ADMM IP address; the length must be
4 bytes.
227
Syslog Server IP Address Optional
The value is interpreted as the IP address of the syslog server,
the length must be 4 bytes.
228
Syslog Server Port
The value is interpreted as the port the syslog server is
monitoring. The length must be 2 bytes.
Optional
The DHCP client request its own IP address using code 50. The DHCP client will select the DHCP server that offers the
currently used IP address. Additionally, the mandatory options must be offered otherwise the DHCP OFFER is ignored by
the DHCP client.
The DHCP client selects the DHCP server according to the following rules:
· The public option (224) has a value equal to the string OpenMobility.
or
· The file field in the DHCP message has a sub string equal to ip_rfp.cnt.
If no matching reply is received, the DHCP client resends the request twice more after 1 second. The DHCP client will wait
for 1 minute before resending 3 requests again. If the DHCP client cannot accept a DHCP offer within 3 minutes, the IP
DECT Base Station reboots.
Each application software comes with the latest released booter software. The application software will update the booter
automatically as long as the major release number of the booter software has not changed, e.g. booter software 2.1.2
will not be automatically updated by booter SW 3.x.y, but booter software 3.0.0 will be automatically updated by booter
software 3.1.0.
The booter update of booters with major release number change, will be performed automatically when the DHCP client
in the application receives an DHCP OFFER with the public option 254 with a value UPDATE. This feature is currently not
supported by the IP Office DHCP server.

Appendix: DHCP Server Operation
7.2 802.1Q VLAN Support
The IP Base Stations support VLANs according to IEEE 802.1Q.
VLAN can be administered either:
· On a per port basis of the LAN switch assuming that the IP Base Stations are connected to a single port of a
switched Ethernet environment.
or
· By setting a VLAN ID on the IP Base Station corresponding to the VLAN they should be operating in. In this case
VLAN tagging has to be set to the IP DECT base station. The following sections refer to this case only.
The benefit of VLAN tagging by the IP DECT Base Station, is to set 802.1p priority within Ethernet frames. The scope of
the following description comprises VLAN tagging and obtaining the VLAN ID. Quality of Service mechanisms like 802.1p
priority and DiffServ are not covered in this section.
· IP DECT base stations are not be able to support VLAN ID 0 as described later in this section. Any other valid
VLAN ID can be configured.
· If 802.1Q tagging is enabled and a VLAN ID is configured, all traffic from an IP Base Station will be tagged with
this VLAN ID.
· Once a VLAN ID is set on the IP Base Station, incoming frames are only accepted if they are tagged as well.
Therefore the switch port has to be configured as a tagged trunk for this VLAN.
· VLAN configuration can be done using DHCP or via OM Configurator.
· The usage of VLAN does influence the boot up process of the IP Base Station because VLAN configuration takes
place during the boot phase.
802.1Q VLAN tagging is enabled if the VLAN ID is set, either through Public Option 225 is using DHCP or through the
ADMM Configurator tool if using static addressing. If no VLAN ID is set, 802.1Q is disabled.
VLAN ID 0 means that the IP Base Station’s traffic belongs on the port/native VLAN. The Ethernet switch port to which
the IP Base Station is connected must be configured to accept 802.1Q tagging for this to work, and the switch must
interpret VLAN ID 0 as the port/native VLAN ID, as per the IEEE 802.1Q standard.
The packets from the IP Base Station are tagged with VLAN ID 0 and the packets send to the IP Base Station are tagged
with the port/native VLAN ID. This scenario does not work, because the IP Base Station supports only one VLAN
ID in both directions. That means the VLAN ID in the receive direction must be the same as the send
direction.

15-601085 Issue 04f (11 June 2009)
VLAN and the Boot Phase of an IP Base Station
DHCP
Because the IP Base Station is not VLAN active during the beginning the start up two DHCP scopes are required (This
procedure applies regardless of the Ethernet switch being used):
The following scenario with arbitrary VLAN IDs details the steps an IP Base Station would go through in a typical dualVLAN implementation.
Step A. DHCP scope within the native VLAN:
1. IP Base Station boots up and obtains an address on the native VLAN.
2. The data VLAN DHCP Public option 225 directs the IP Base Station to go to voice VLAN.
Step B. DHCP scope within the voice VLAN:
1. IP DECT Base Station releases the data VLAN address and obtains an address on the voice VLAN and all other
parameters.
2. The voice VLAN does not have the DHCP Public option 225, because an IP Base Station already on the voice VLAN
does not need to be directed to go there.
3. IP Base Station is operational on the voice VLAN.
If a reboot or power cycle occurs, the IP DECT Base Station returns to step A.
If an IP Base Station cannot obtain an address on the voice VLAN, due to network or DHCP problems, it falls back
automatically to untagged frames (native VLAN).
· Note: The IP Office DHCP server cannot be used for VLAN environments, only for native VLAN. Therefore, it can
only be used for step A, not step B.
Local Configuration of the IP DECT Base Stations
The ADMM Configurator has to be a member of the native VLAN for the first configuration.

7.3 IP Signalling and Media Stream
To establish a call between an IP phone and a DECT phone, the following IP streams must be established:
1. A signalling channel to and from the IP phone.
2. A signalling channel to and from the ADMM.
3. A control interface between the ADMM and the IP Base Station that has a connection to the DECT phone (known as
the primary IP Base Station).
4. A Real Time Protocol (RTP)/Real Time Control Protocol (RTCP) connection between the IP phone and the IP Office
and then a RTP/RTCP connection between the IP Office and the IP Base Station.
· If Direct Media is active for the IP Office IP DECT line configuration, RTP/RTCP connection is directly between
the IP phone and the IP Base Station.
IP DECT Installation
IP Office
Page 101
15-601085 Issue 04f (11 June 2009)
To establish a call between two DECT phones, the same IP streams must be established as in the scenario before, except
the IP phone is not involved. If Direct Media is active, the RTP/RTCP connection is directly between that IP Base Station.
The following figure illustrates this scenario:
A call from one DECT phone to another that resides on the same IP Base Station will loop back within the IP Base Station,
if no IP Office is involved. So the call will not pass through to the local area network (LAN). Although the voice packets
will not impact LAN traffic, signal packets will.

15-601085 Issue 04f (11 June 2009)
Appendix: IP Signalling and Media Stream
If the DECT phone user is moving, the phone detects that another IP Base Station has a better signal strength and starts
the handover process. The media stream from the IP phone cannot move to the secondary IP Base Station, so the
primary uses the LAN to direct the voice to the secondary IP Base Station, as shown in the following figure.
As the phone user moves into the next IP Base Station zone of coverage, the phone detects that the IP Base Station has
a better signal strength. The media stream from the IP phone cannot move to the secondary IP Base Station, so the
primary IP Base Station uses the LAN to direct the voice to the new secondary IP Base Station, as shown below.
