Plantronics software is required. Voyager Focus UC connected via Bluetooth to a Plantronics
BT600 Bluetooth USB Adapter connected to the desktop PC running one-X Attendant.
Readers should pay attention to Section 2, in particular the scope of testing as outlined in
Section 2.1 as well as the observations noted in Section 2.2 to ensure that their own use cases
are adequately covered by this scope and results.
Information in these Application Notes has been obtained through DevConnect compliance

1. Introduction
These Application Notes describe the configuration steps required to integrate the Plantronics
Voyager Focus UC Bluetooth Headset with Avaya one-X® Attendant. No additional Plantronics
software is required. Voyager Focus UC connected via Bluetooth to a Plantronics BT600
Bluetooth USB Adapter connected to the desktop PC running one-X Attendant.
Refer to the appropriate Plantronics documentation listed in Section 10 for additional product
information.
2. General Test Approach
Avaya’s formal testing and Declaration of Conformity is provided only on the headsets/handsets
that carry the Avaya brand or logo. Avaya may conduct testing of non-Avaya headset/handset to
determine interoperability with Avaya phones. However, Avaya does not conduct the testing of
non-Avaya headsets/handsets for: Acoustic Pressure, Safety, Hearing Aid Compliance, EMC
regulations, or any other tests to ensure conformity with safety, audio quality, long-term
reliability or any regulation requirements. As a result, Avaya makes no representations whether a
particular non-Avaya headset will work with Avaya’s telephones or with a different generation
of the same Avaya telephone.
Since there is no industry standard for handset interfaces, different manufacturers utilize
different handset/headset interfaces with their telephones. Therefore, any claim made by a
headset vendor that its product is compatible with Avaya telephones does not equate to a
guarantee that the headset will provide adequate safety protection or audio quality.
The interoperability compliance test included feature and serviceability testing. The feature
testing focused on placing calls to and from Avaya one-X Attendant using the Plantronics
Voyager Focus UC and verifying 2-way audio. The type of calls made included calls to
voicemail, to local stations, and to the PSTN.
The serviceability testing focused on verifying the usability of Voyager Focus UC after restarting
the Avaya one-X Attendant, disconnecting and reconnecting the headset, and rebooting the PC.

2.1. Interoperability Compliance Testing
All test cases were performed manually. The following features were verified:







Placing calls to the voicemail system. Voice messages were recorded and played back to
verify that the playback volume and recording level were good.
Placing calls to local stations to verify two-way audio.
Placing calls to the PSTN to verify two-way audio.
Answering and ending calls using the call control button on the headset.
Verifying ringback tone and incoming call notification for outgoing and incoming calls,
respectively.
Using the volume control buttons on the headset to adjust the playback volume.
Using the mute button on the headset and on one-X Attendant to mute and un-mute the
audio, including verifying that the mute status was accurately reflected on the headset and
one-X Attendant.
For the serviceability testing, the headset was disconnected and reconnected to verify proper
operation. Avaya one-X Attendant application was also restarted for the same purpose. The
desktop PC was also rebooted to verify that one-X Attendant and headset were operational when
the PC came back into service.
2.2. Test Results
All test cases passed with the following observations:


Placing Voyager Focus UC on your head/ear while there is an incoming call does not
automatically answer the call. The user must press the call control button on the headset
to answer the call.
When a PC is restarted after one-X® Attendant is installed, the user may see an
indication that the Plantronics Spokes Software, or Hub Software, process is running on
the Windows task bar. This process is used by the headset for call control functionality. If
the user manually closes or shuts down this process while one-X® Attendant is running,
call control functionality will stop. Restarting one-X® Attendant will restore call control
functions.

3. Reference Configuration
Figure 1 illustrates the test configuration used to verify the Plantronics solution. The
configuration consists of Avaya Aura® Communication Manager running in a virtual
environment with an Avaya G450 Media Gateway providing connectivity to the PSTN via an
ISDN-PRI trunk (not shown). Avaya Aura® Messaging was used as the voicemail system.
Avaya one-X Attendant was installed on a desktop PC running Windows 7. Voyager Focus UC
connected via Bluetooth to a Plantronics BT600 Bluetooth USB Adapter connected to the
desktop PC running one-X Attendant.
