Requirements
The Avaya Definity/PBXLink integration supports configurations of the following components:
Phone System
•
An Avaya Definity phone system with one or two digital lines connected to the PBX ports on the
PBXLink box. The line or lines must be compatible with the 7434D or 8434D digital phones. If
vectoring will be used and depending on the phone system, the line or lines may require
compatibility with only the 7434D digital phone.
•
Bridged mode feature, enabled.
•
For each voice messaging port, one analog port connected to the voice cards in the Cisco Unity
server.
•
The SMDI port in the PBXLink box connected to a serial port (COM1 is the default) on the
Cisco Unity server with an RS-232 serial cable. If multiple PBXLink boxes are installed, the SMDI
port of the last PBXLink box is connected to the Management port of the first PBXLink box with
an RS-232 serial cable. The SMDI port of the first PBXLink box is connected to a serial port (COM1
is the default) on the Cisco Unity server with another RS-232 serial cable. Make sure that the serial
protocol parameters for the Management port of the first PBXLink box are set to the same values as
the SMDI port.
We recommend that the serial cable have the following construction:
– A maximum of 50 feet (15.24 m) in length
– 24 AWG stranded conductors
– Low capacitance—for example, no more than 12 pF/ft (39.4 pF/m) between conductors
– At least 65 percent braided shield over aluminized polymer sleeve around conductors
– UL-recognized overall cable jacket insulation with low dielectric constant
– Braided shield fully terminated to and enclosed by a metal connector backshell
– Gold-plated connector contacts

System Integrations” section in your version of Cisco Unity System Requirements at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_installation_guides_list.html.
•
Cisco Unity installed and ready for the integration, as described in the applicable Cisco Unity
installation guide at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_installation_guides_list.html.
•
A license that enables the applicable number of voice messaging ports.
•
An available serial port (COM1 is the default).
Integration Description
The Avaya Definity/PBXLink integration uses one or more PBXLink boxes, with each box emulating up
to two Avaya 7434D or 8434D digital phones. The PBXLink is connected to the phone system with
digital phone lines and connected to the Cisco Unity server with an RS-232 serial cable. The voice
messaging lines from the phone system connect to the analog voice cards in the Cisco Unity server.
This integration requires that bridged mode be used.
The PBXLink box receives the following call information from the phone system:
•
The extension of the called party
•
The extension of the calling party (for internal calls) or the phone number of the calling party (if it
is an external call and the system uses caller ID)
•
The reason for the forward (the extension is busy, does not answer, or is set to forward all calls)
The PBXLink box formats this information as a Simplified Message Desk Interface (SMDI) packet and
sends the packet to Cisco Unity through the RS-232 serial cable.
Cisco Unity uses this information to answer the call appropriately. For example, a call forwarded to
Cisco Unity is answered with the personal greeting of the subscriber. If the phone system routes the call
to Cisco Unity without this information, Cisco Unity answers with the opening greeting.
Cisco Unity also activates or deactivates messaging waiting indicators (MWIs) through the analog voice
messaging ports rather than through the serial data link as in other serial integrations. As a result, it is
necessary to set some voice messaging ports for handling MWIs as described in the “Planning How the
Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity” section on page 6, and to enter the MWI on and
off codes as described in the “Creating a New Integration with the Avaya Definity/PBXLink Phone
System” section on page 29.
For additional information on the PBXLink box, refer to the PBXLink documentation, which is available
from the manufacturer.
Configuration for 24 or Fewer Ports
Avaya Definity/PBXLink integrations with 24 or fewer ports can use the following configuration (others
are possible):
•
(Recommended) A single PBXLink-24 box with Port A set for calls only.

a forwarded internal call, based on the extension from which the call originated)
•
Message waiting indication (MWI)
Integrations with Multiple Phone Systems
Depending on the version, Cisco Unity can be integrated with two or more phone systems:
•
Cisco Unity 4.0 and 4.1 can be integrated with a maximum of two phone systems at one time. For
information on and instructions for integrating Cisco Unity with two phone systems, refer to the
Dual Phone System Integration Guide at

Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity
Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by
Cisco Unity
Before programming the phone system, you need to plan how the voice messaging ports will be used by
Cisco Unity. The following considerations will affect the programming for the phone system (for
example, setting up the hunt group or call forwarding for the voice messaging ports):
•
The number of voice messaging ports installed.
•
The number of voice messaging ports that will answer calls.
•
The number of voice messaging ports that will only dial out, for example, to send message
notification, to set message waiting indicators (MWIs), to make AMIS deliveries, and to make
telephone record and playback (TRAP) connections.
The following table describes the voice messaging port settings in Cisco Unity that can be set in UTIM,
and that are displayed as read-only text on the System > Ports page of the Cisco Unity Administrator.
Table 1
Settings for the Voice Messaging Ports
Field
Considerations
Extension
Enter the extension for the port as assigned on the phone system.
Enabled
Check this check box to enable the port. The port is enabled during normal operation.
Uncheck this check box to disable the port. When the port is disabled, calls to the port get a
ringing tone but are not answered. Typically, the port is disabled only by the installer during
testing.
Answer Calls
Check this check box to designate the port for answering calls. These calls can be incoming
calls from unidentified callers or from subscribers.
Message Notification
Check this check box to designate the port for notifying subscribers of messages. Assign
Message Notification to the least busy ports.
Dialout MWI
Check this check box to designate the port for turning MWIs on and off. Assign Dialout MWI
to the least busy ports.
(not used by serial or SMDI
integrations)
AMIS Delivery
(available with the AMIS
licensed feature only)
Check this check box to designate the port for making outbound AMIS calls to deliver voice
messages from Cisco Unity subscribers to users on another voice messaging system.
Cisco Unity supports the Audio Messaging Interchange Specification (AMIS) protocol,
which provides an analog mechanism for transferring voice messages between different
voice messaging systems.
This setting affects outbound AMIS calls only. All ports are used for incoming AMIS calls.
Because the transmission of outgoing AMIS messages may tie up voice ports for long
periods of time, you may want to adjust the schedule on the Network > AMIS > Schedule
page so that outgoing AMIS calls are placed during closed hours or at times when
Cisco Unity is not processing many calls.
TRAP Connection
Check this check box so that subscribers can use the phone as a recording and playback
device in Cisco Unity web applications and e-mail clients. Assign TRAP Connection to the
least busy ports.
The Number of Voice Messaging Ports to Install
The number of voice messaging ports to install depends on numerous factors, including:

OL-3105-15
Avaya Definity Gx/PBXLink Integration Guide for Cisco Unity 4.0
Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity
•
The number of calls Cisco Unity will answer when call traffic is at its peak.
•
The expected length of each message that callers will record and that subscribers will listen to.
•
The number of subscribers.
•
The number of ports that will be set to dial out only.
•
The number of calls made for message notification.
•
The number of MWIs that will be activated when call traffic is at its peak.
•
The number of AMIS delivery calls.
•
The number of TRAP connections needed when call traffic is at its peak. (TRAP connections are
used by Cisco Unity web applications and e-mail clients to play back and record over the phone.)
•
The number of calls that will use the automated attendant and call handlers when call traffic is at its
peak.
It is best to install only the number of voice messaging ports that are needed so that system resources are
not allocated to unused ports.
The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Answer Calls
The calls that the voice messaging ports answer can be incoming calls from unidentified callers or from
subscribers. Typically, the voice messaging ports that answer calls are the busiest.
You can set voice messaging ports to both answer calls and to dial out (for example, to send message
notifications). However, when the voice messaging ports perform more than one function and are very
active (for example, answering many calls), the other functions may be delayed until the voice messaging
port is free (for example, message notifications cannot be sent until there are fewer calls to answer). For
best performance, dedicate certain voice messaging ports for only answering incoming calls, and
dedicate other ports for only dialing out. Separating these port functions eliminates the possibility of a
collision, in which an incoming call arrives on a port at the same time that Cisco Unity takes the port
off-hook to dial out.
The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Only Dial Out, and Not Answer Calls
Ports that will only dial out and will not answer calls can do one or more of the following:
•
Notify subscribers by phone, pager, or e-mail of messages that have arrived.
•
Turn MWIs on and off for subscriber extensions.
•
Make outbound AMIS calls to deliver voice messages from Cisco Unity subscribers to users on
another voice messaging system. (This action is available only with the AMIS licensed feature.)
•
Make a TRAP connection so that subscribers can use the phone as a recording and playback device
in Cisco Unity web applications and e-mail clients.
Typically, these voice messaging ports are the least busy ports.
Caution
In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Cisco Unity that cannot
answer calls (voice messaging ports that are not set to Answer Calls). For example, if a voice messaging
port is set only to Dialout MWI, do not send calls to it.
Preparing for Programming the Phone System
Record your decisions about the voice messaging ports to guide you in programming the phone system.

If you use programming options other than those supplied in the following procedure, the performance
of the integration may be affected.
Caution
In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Cisco Unity that cannot
answer calls (voice messaging ports that are not set to Answer Calls). For example, if a voice messaging
port is set only to Message Notification, do not send calls to it.
Make sure that the phone system sends calls only to Cisco Unity voice ports that are set to Answer Calls
on the System > Ports page in the Cisco Unity Administrator. Calls sent to a voice port not set to Answer
Calls cannot be answered by Cisco Unity and may cause other problems.
Do the following procedures as applicable.

After programming the phone system, it is necessary to set up the direct lines for users on the phone
system.
To Set Up User Phones
Step 1
Use the Change Station (extension number) command to display the Station screen for each extension.
Step 2
In the Name field, enter the user’s name and extension. The PBXLink box can display only the first 16
characters, and the extension must appear in these 16 characters.
Step 3
In the Coverage Path field, enter 1.
Note
You can use alternate extensions to create multiple line appearances, enable easy message access from
cell phones, and simplify addressing messages to subscribers at different locations in Cisco Unity.
Enabling alternate MWIs lets Cisco Unity turn MWIs on at more than one extension. For details, see the
“Appendix: Using Alternate Extensions and MWIs” section on page 41.

For best performance, use the first voice messaging ports for incoming calls and the last ports to dial out.
This helps minimize the possibility of a collision, in which an incoming call arrives on a port at the same
time that Cisco Unity takes the port off-hook to dial out.
Caution
Table 37
In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Cisco Unity
that cannot answer calls (voice messaging ports that are not set to Answer Calls). For example,
if a voice messaging port is set only to Message Notification, do not send calls to it.

Field
Considerations
Extension
Enter the extension for the port as assigned on the phone system.
Enabled
Check this check box to enable the port. The port is enabled during normal operation.
Uncheck this check box to disable the port. When the port is disabled, calls to the port get a
ringing tone but are not answered. Typically, the port is disabled only by the installer during
testing.
Answer Calls
Check this check box to designate the port for answering calls. These calls can be incoming
calls from unidentified callers or from subscribers.
Message Notification
Check this check box to designate the port for notifying subscribers of messages. Assign
Message Notification to the least busy ports.
Dialout MWI
Check this check box to designate the port for turning MWIs on and off. Assign Dialout MWI
to the least busy ports.
(not used by serial or SMDI
integrations)
AMIS Delivery
(available with the AMIS
licensed feature only)
Check this check box to designate the port for making outbound AMIS calls to deliver voice
messages from Cisco Unity subscribers to users on another voice messaging system.
Cisco Unity supports the Audio Messaging Interchange Specification (AMIS) protocol,
which provides an analog mechanism for transferring voice messages between different
voice messaging systems.
This setting affects outbound AMIS calls only. All ports are used for incoming AMIS calls.
Because the transmission of outgoing AMIS messages may tie up voice ports for long
periods of time, you may want to adjust the schedule on the Network > AMIS > Schedule
page so that outgoing AMIS calls are placed during closed hours or at times when
Cisco Unity is not processing many calls.
TRAP Connection
Check this check box so that subscribers can use the phone as a recording and playback
device in Cisco Unity web applications and e-mail clients. Assign TRAP Connection to the
least busy ports.

Requirements
The following components are required to integrate a secondary server:
Phone System
•
A data splitter unit to split the single serial cable from the first PBXLink box (which connects to the
Cisco Unity servers) into two serial cables.
•
Two additional RS-232 serial cables (to be used with the serial cable that was connected from the
PBXLink box directly to the primary server when it was integrated with the phone system). With
these three serial cables, connect one serial cable from the SMDI port in the first PBXLink box to
the data splitter unit; connect the second serial cable from the data splitter unit to the serial port on
the primary server; and connect the third serial cable from the data splitter unit to the serial port on
the secondary server.
Cisco Unity Server
•
One secondary server for each primary server installed and ready for the integration, as described in
the applicable Cisco Unity installation guide and earlier in this integration guide.
•
The applicable cable configuration for each analog voice messaging port to simultaneously connect
the phone system to the corresponding ports on both the primary and the secondary servers. For
example, connect port 1 on the phone system with both port 1 on the primary server and port 1 on
the secondary server.
•
A license that enables failover.
Integration Description
The phone system uses PBXLink boxes to send call information to the primary and secondary servers.
The analog voice messaging lines from the phone system provide voice connectivity to the primary and
secondary servers. Figure 3 shows the required connections.

Appendix: Using Alternate Extensions and MWIs
Alternate Extensions
In addition to the “primary” extension that you specify for subscribers, you can assign subscribers up to
nine alternate extensions. (The primary extension is the one that you assign to each subscriber when you
create his or her subscriber account; it is listed on the Subscribers > Subscribers > Profile page.)
Reasons to Use Alternate Extensions
There are several reasons that you may want to specify alternate extensions for subscribers. For example,
if you have more than one Cisco Unity server that accesses a single, corporate-wide directory, you may
want to use alternate extensions to simplify addressing messages to subscribers at the different locations.
With alternate extensions, the number that a subscriber uses when addressing a message to someone at
another location can be the same number that the subscriber dials when calling. You may also want to
use alternate extensions to:
•
Handle multiple line appearances on subscriber phones.
Avaya Definity Gx/PBXLink Integration Guide for Cisco Unity 4.0
OL-3105-15
41
Appendix: Using Alternate Extensions and MWIs
Alternate Extensions
•
Tip
•
Offer easy message access on direct calls from a cell phone, home phone, or phone at an alternate
work site (assuming that the phone number is passed along to Cisco Unity from these other phone
systems). In addition, when such phones are used as alternate extensions, and are set to forward to
Cisco Unity, callers can listen to the subscriber greeting, and leave messages for the subscriber just
as they would when dialing the primary extension for the subscriber.
To reduce the number of requests from subscribers who want alternate extensions set up for
multiple cell phones, home phones, and other phones, give subscribers class of service (COS)
rights to specify their own set of alternate extensions. (See the Subscribers > Class of Service >
Profile page.) With proper COS rights, a subscriber can specify up to five alternate extensions
in the Cisco Unity Assistant—in addition to the nine that you can specify on the Subscribers >
Alternate Extensions page in the Cisco Unity Administrator.
Enable URL-based extensions in Cisco Unity for an integration with a SIP phone system.
How Alternate Extensions Work
Before you set up alternate extensions, review the following list for information on how alternate
extensions work:
•
Alternate extensions cannot exceed 30 characters in length. By default, each administrator-defined
alternate extension must be at least 3 characters in length, while subscriber-defined alternate
extensions must be at least 10 characters.
You can use the Advanced Settings tool in Tools Depot to specify a minimum extension length for
the extensions entered in the Cisco Unity Administrator and the Cisco Unity Assistant. Refer to the
Advanced Settings Tool Help for details on using the settings. Respectively, the settings are
Administration—Set the Minimum Length for Locations, and Administration—Set the Minimum
Length for Subscriber-Defined Alternate Extensions.
•
You can control whether subscribers can use the Cisco Unity Assistant to view the alternate
extensions that you specify in the Cisco Unity Administrator. To do so, see the Subscribers > Class
of Service > Profile page. The Subscriber-Defined Alternate Extension table displays the alternate
extensions that the subscriber adds.
•
Neither the Cisco Unity Administrator nor the Cisco Unity Assistant will accept an extension that
is already assigned to another subscriber (either as a primary or alternate extension), or to a public
distribution list, call handler, directory handler, or interview handler. Cisco Unity verifies that each
alternate extension is unique—up to the dialing domain level, if applicable—before allowing either
an administrator or a subscriber to create it.
•
All alternate extensions use the same transfer settings as the primary extension.
•
In many cases, Cisco Unity can activate a message waiting indicator (MWI) for an alternate
extension. However, depending on the phones and phone systems involved, some additional phone
system programming may be required to set this up.
Setting Up Alternate Extensions
Do the applicable procedure to add, modify, or delete alternate extensions:
•
To Add Administrator-Defined Alternate Extensions, page 43
•
To Modify or Delete Alternate Extension(s), page 43
Avaya Definity Gx/PBXLink Integration Guide for Cisco Unity 4.0
42
OL-3105-15
Appendix: Using Alternate Extensions and MWIs
Alternate MWIs
To Add Administrator-Defined Alternate Extensions
Step 1
In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to any Subscribers > Alternate Extensions page.
Step 2
In the Administrator-Defined Alternate Extensions table, enter an extension in any row. When entering
characters in the Alternate Extensions table, consider the following:
•
You can enter an extension up to 30 characters in length. (SIP integrations can use up to 30
alphanumeric characters.)
•
Each extension must be unique—up to the dialing domain level, if applicable.
•
Enter digits 0 through 9. Do not use spaces, dashes, or parentheses.
•
For SIP integrations, you can also enter a valid alias for a SIP URL. For example, if the URL is
SIP:aabade@cisco.com, enter aabade. Do not use spaces.
•
Rows are numbered as a convenience. You can enter alternate extensions in any order, and you can
have blank rows.
Step 3
Repeat Step 2 as necessary.
Step 4
Click the Save icon. Alternate extensions are enabled for all rows in the table.
To Modify or Delete Alternate Extension(s)
Step 1
In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to any Subscribers > Alternate Extensions page.
Step 2
Do any of the following:
•
To modify an extension, change the extension in the Alternate Extensions table.
•
To delete extensions, check the check boxes next to the alternate extensions that you want to delete.
•
To remove all alternate extensions listed in the table, click Select All.
Step 3
Click the Save icon.
Step 4
Repeat Step 2 and Step 3 as necessary.
Note
You can run the Cisco Unity Bulk Import wizard when you want to add alternate extensions for multiple
subscribers at once. When you do, the Cisco Unity Bulk Import wizard appends the new alternate
extensions to the existing table of alternate extensions, beginning with the first blank row.
Alternate MWIs
You can set up Cisco Unity to activate alternate MWIs when you want a new message for a subscriber
to activate the MWIs at up to 10 extensions. For example, a message left at extension 1001 can activate
the MWIs on extensions 1001 and 1002.
Cisco Unity uses MWIs to alert the subscriber to new voice messages. MWIs are not used to indicate
new e-mail, fax, or return receipt messages.

Appendix: Using Alternate Extensions and MWIs
Alternate MWIs
Setting Up Alternate MWIs
Cisco Unity can activate alternate MWIs. Note that depending on the phones and phone systems, some
additional phone system programming may be necessary. Refer to the installation guide for the phone
system.
To enable alternate MWIs for extensions, do the following procedure for each subscriber who needs
alternate MWIs.
To Set Up Alternate MWIs for Extensions
Step 1
In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the applicable Subscribers > Subscribers > Messages page.
Step 2
Confirm that the Use MWI for Message Notification check box is checked.
Step 3
Click the Add button located beneath the MWI Extensions table to add a row to the table. By default,
the first row in the table contains an “X” to indicate the primary extension assigned to a subscriber. If
you want one more extension and do not need to activate the MWI on the primary extension, you can
also modify the first row.
Step 4
Enter the applicable extension in the Extension field of the table. MWIs are automatically enabled for
all rows in the table. When entering characters in the MWI Extensions table, consider the following:
•
Enter digits 0 through 9. Do not use spaces, dashes, or parentheses.
•
Enter , (comma) to insert a one-second pause.
•
Enter # and * to correspond to the # and * keys on the phone.
Step 5
Click the Save icon.
Step 6

You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco
will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
