1. Introduction
These Application Notes describe the configuration steps required to integrate the Plantronics
APV-63 EHS (Electronic Hook Switch) Adapter and the Plantronics Voyager Legend CS
Wireless Headset System with Avaya 1400 Series Digital Telephones. Plantronics APV-63 EHS
provides Plantronics headsets the ability to hear ring tones, answer and end calls, and mute/unmute calls directly from the headset when the user is away from their desk.
2. General Test Approach and Test Results
DevConnect Compliance Testing is conducted jointly by Avaya and DevConnect members. The
jointly-defined test plan focuses on exercising APIs and/or standards-based interfaces pertinent
to the interoperability of the tested products and their functionalities. DevConnect Compliance
Testing is not intended to substitute full product performance or feature testing performed by
DevConnect members, nor is it to be construed as an endorsement by Avaya of the suitability or
completeness of a DevConnect member’s solution.
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 the Avaya 1400 Series Digital Telephones with the
Plantronics APV-63 EHS Adapter and Plantronics Voyager Legend CS Wireless Headset and
verifying two-way audio. The call types included calls to voicemail, to local extensions, and to
the PSTN.
The serviceability testing focused on verifying the usability of the Plantronics wireless headset
after restarting the Avaya 1400 Series Digital Telephones and re-connecting the Plantronics
headset.

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 internal extensions to verify two-way audio.
Placing calls to the PSTN to verify two-way audio.
Hearing incoming call notification.
Hearing ring back tone for outgoing calls.
Answering and ending calls using the call control button on the headset.
Toggling between handset, speakerphone, and headset.
Using the volume control buttons on the Plantronics headset to adjust the audio volume.
Using the mute control button on the Plantronics headset to mute and un-mute the audio.
For the serviceability testing, an Avaya 1408 Digital Telephone was restarted to verify proper
operation of the headset after the reboot was completed.
2.2. Test Results
All test cases passed. See Section 3.1 for instructions on answering, ending, and placing calls
with the headset.
During the compliance test, it was noted that the Avaya 1400 Series Digital Telephone Release 4
SP 3 (Alias Release 36.0) did not respond properly when the call control button on the
Plantronics headset was pressed. Specifically, the following issues occurred when the call
control button on the headset was pressed:



The headset button on the digital phone would not be activated so dial tone would not be
provided to the user.
An incoming call would not be answered by pressing the call control button on headset.
An active call would not be dropped by pressing the call control button on the headset.
To get dial tone, answer an incoming call, or dropping an active call when using the headset
required pressing the headset button on the digital phone. This issue was resolved with Release
4 SP 4 (Alias Release 38.0, Vintage 7) of the Avaya 1400 Digital Telephone.
