1. Introduction
These Application Notes describe the configuration steps required for the Valcom One-Way IP
Speakers to successfully interoperate with Avaya IP Office. The Valcom One-Way Speakers
enable voice access to a single zone of one-way paging over an IP-based LAN/WAN. The
Speakers are SIP-based devices that integrate with Avaya IP Office as a SIP endpoint. The
following Valcom One-Way IP Speaker was compliance tested:

VIP-120
When a call is placed to the Valcom One-Way IP Speaker, the device automatically answers the
call and provides one-way communication to the device.
1.1. Interoperability Compliance Testing
The interoperability compliance test plan included feature and serviceability test cases.
The feature testing covered SIP registration, basic calls, display verification, hold/reconnect,
conferences, transfers, media shuffling, and audio codec negotiation.
The serviceability testing focused on verifying the ability of the Valcom One-Way IP Speaker to
recover from adverse conditions, such as a disconnect and reconnect of the Ethernet cable to the
device, and Avaya IP Office reboots.
1.2. Support
Technical support for Valcom can be obtained through the following:

6. General Test Approach and Test Results
The feature test cases were performed manually. Calls were place to the Valcom One-Way IP
Speaker from various endpoints within the test environment, and manual call controls from the
origination endpoint were exercised to verify proper interactions with features such as “transfer”
and “conference”.
The serviceability test cases were performed manually by disconnecting and reconnecting the
LAN cables to the Valcom One-Way IP Speakers. Additionally, the Avaya IP Office server was
rebooted to verify the Valcom One-Way IP Speaker was able to properly register and function
normally after the server recovered.
All feature test cases were executed and passed with the following observations:
 When shuffling (Allow Direct Media Path) was enabled on Avaya IP Office, calls
involving the Valcom One-Way IP Speakers did not shuffle.
 The Valcom “Pre-Announce Tone” feature was not functioning properly. The preannoucement tone did not play. Valcom is aware of the issue and the feature will be
enabled in future firmware releases.
