Technical Bulletin 11572
Changes to Local Digit Maps on SoundPoint® IP Phones
This technical bulletin provides detailed information on how to modify the
configuration files to automate the setup phase of number-only calls.
This information applies to SoundPoint IP phones running SIP application
version 2.1 or later.
Introduction
Enhancements have been made to this feature that can eliminate the need for
using the Dial or Send soft key when making outgoing calls. For example, it
can match the behavior of removing the 9 or 0 from a string of dialed digits or
adding the area code before dialed digits when a switch to 10 digit phone
numbers occurs.
As soon as a digit pattern matching the digit map is found, the call setup
process will complete automatically. The configuration syntax is the same as
that specified in 2.1.5 of RFC 3435. The phone’s behavior when the user dials
digits that do not match the digit map is configurable. It is also possible to strip
a trailing ‘#’ from the digits sent, prepend a ‘+’ to digits, or to replace certain
matched digits with the introduction of ‘R’ to the digit map.
Configuration File Changes
If a single dial plan is used for the entire company, the dial plan is best
specified in the application configuration file (sip.cfg). You can also create
multiple dial plans and specify which phones are to use which in the
phone-specific configuration file (phone1.cfg).
Configuration changes can performed centrally at the boot server or locally:

Digit Map <digitmap/>
A digit map is defined either by a “string” or by a list of strings. Each string in
the list is an alternative numbering scheme, specified either as a set of digits or
timers, or as an expression over which the gateway will attempt to find a
shortest possible match.
Digit map extension letter “R” indicates that certain matched strings are
replaced. The following examples shows the semantics of the syntax:
•
R9RRxxxxxxx—remove 9 at the beginning of the dialed number
— For example, if a customer dials 914539400, the first 9 is removed
when the call is placed.
•
RR604Rxxxxxxx—prepend 604 to all 7 digit numbers
— For example, if a customer dials 4539400, 604 is added to the front of
the number, so a call 6044539400 is placed.
•
R9R604Rxxxxxxx—replaces 9 with 604
•
R999R911R—convert 999 to 911
•
xxR601R600Rxx—when applied on 1160122 gives 1160022
•
xR60xR600Rxxxxxxx—any 60x will be replaced with 600 in the middle of
the dialed number that matches
— For example, if a customer dials 16092345678, a call is placed to
16002345678.

Technical Bulletin
SoundPoint ® IP, SIP 2.1
The following guidelines should be noted:
•
You must use only *, #, or 0-9 between second and third R
•
If a digit map does not comply, it is not included in the digit plan as a valid
one. That is, no matching is done against it.
•
There is no limitation on the number of R triplet sets in a digit map.
However, a digitmap that contains less than full number of triplet sets (for
example, a total of 2Rs or 5Rs) is considered an invalid digit map.
•
Using T in the left part of RRR syntax is not recommended. For example,
R0TR322R should be avoided.

Technical Bulletin 17124
Syslog on SoundPoint® IP Phones
This technical bulletin provides detailed information on how the SIP
application has been modified to support logging system level messages and
error conditions with communications networks to a centralized location.
This information applies to SoundPoint IP phones running SIP application
version 2.1 or later.
Introduction
Syslog is a de facto standard for forwarding log messages in an IP network.
The term "syslog" is often used for both the actual syslog protocol, as well as
the application or library sending syslog messages.
The syslog protocol is a very simplistic protocol: the syslog sender sends a
small textual message (less than 1024 bytes) to the syslog receiver. The receiver
is commonly called "syslogd", "syslog daemon" or "syslog server". Syslog
messages can be sent through UDP or TCP. The data is sent in cleartext.
Syslog is supported by a wide variety of devices and receivers. Because of this,
syslog can be used to integrate log data from many different types of systems
into a central repository.
The syslog protocol is defined in RFC 3164. For more information on syslog,
go to http://www.ietf.org/rfc.html .
The log.render.level maps to syslog severity as follows:
0 -> SeverityDebug (7)
1 -> SeverityDebug (7)
2 -> SeverityInformational (6)
3 -> SeverityInformational (6)
4 -> SeverityError (3)
5 -> SeverityCritical (2)
6 -> SeverityEmergency (0)
7 -> SeverityNotice (5)
For more information on log.render.level, refer to Basic Logging
<level/><change/> and <render/> on page 138 of the SIP 2.1 Administrator’s
Guide.
Network configuration changes required to support this feature are described

Technical Bulletin 5844
SIP Server Fallback Enhancements on SoundPoint® IP Phones
This technical bulletin provides detailed information on how the SIP
application has been enhanced to support SIP server fallback.
This information applies to SoundPoint IP phones running SIP application
version 2.1 or later.
Introduction
Server redundancy is often required in VoIP deployments to ensure continuity
of phone service for events where the call server needs to be taken offline for
maintenance, the server fails, or the connection from the phone to the server
fails.
Two types of redundancy are possible:
•
Fail-over: In this mode, the full phone system functionality is preserved by
having a second equivalent capability call server take over from the one
that has gone down/off-line. This mode of operation should be done
using DNS mechanisms or “IP Address Moving” from the primary to the
back-up server.
•
Fallback: In this mode, a second less featured call server (router or
gateway device) with SIP capability takes over call control to provide basic
calling capability, but without some of the richer features offered by the
primary call server (for example, shared lines, presence, and Message
Waiting Indicator). Polycom phones support configuration of multiple
servers per SIP registration for this purpose.
In some cases, a combination of the two may be deployed.
In SIP 2.1, the fallback behavior has been enhanced and this behavior is
described in this document.
<January, 2007>
3725-17472-001/A
Note
Your SIP server provider should be consulted for recommended methods of
configuring phones and servers for fail-over configuration.
Warning
The server redundancy behavior in SIP2.1 has changed from that implemented in
prior releases. Prior to SIP 2.1, the reg.x.server.y parameters (see section
4.6.2.1 of the SIP 2.0 Administrator's Guide) could be used for fail-over
configuration. The older behavior is no longer supported. Customers that are using
the reg.x.server.y. configuration parameters where y>=2 should take care to
ensure that their current deployments are not adversely affected. For example the
phone will only support advanced SIP features such as shared lines, missed calls,
presence with the primary server (y=1).
Technical Bulletin
SoundPoint ® IP, SIP 2.1
Terminology
Before you read this document, it is important to understand certain
terminology and become familiar with the server/registration configuration
as described in the references listed in the References on page 8. The behavior
described in this document supersedes that described in section 3.6.5 of the
SIP 2.0 Administrator's Guide.
SIP Registrations: SoundPoint IP phones support the ability to have multiple
SIP Registrations per phone. This is often used to support multiple “Lines” on
a single phone and normally the SIP server(s) used for each Registration are
the same. However, they could be different.
Primary and Fallback Servers: Each of these SIP Registrations may be
configured for concurrent registration with multiple servers for fallback
purposes. For example, a phone may be configured to have two SIP
Registrations and each SIP Registration may be configured with two separate
servers (a primary server and a fallback server). DNS mechanisms (as
described in RFC3263) may be used such that the servers are capable of
resolving to multiple physical SIP servers for fail-over purposes.
Note
The primary server is the only one that will be used for advanced SIP features such
as shared lines, message waiting indicators, and presence. This is a change in
behavior from software releases before SIP 2.1 All other configured servers are
referred to as fallback servers.
Working Server: The phone maintains a list of all possible servers gained from
both DNS and configuration. The highest priority server which has an active
registration is treated as the working server and will be the first server tried for
call initiation purposes. At any time, there is only one working server
recognized by the phone.
Registrar Server: Servers (both primary and fallback) may be configured with
registration enabled or disabled using the reg.x.server.y.register
configuration parameter. Servers that have this parameter enabled will
attempt registrations and are termed a registrar server. If a server is not a
registrar server, calls will be attempted on that server if appropriate, but
registration will not be attempted. Only a registrar server can become the
working server.
For the purposes of this document, we will use examples where the phone has
only one SIP Registration.
The sections Server <server/> on page 95 and Registration <reg/> on page 149
of the SIP 2.0 Administrator's Guide describe the parameters that are relevant to
the configuration of the phones for server redundancy and fallback behavior.
Configuration file changes for SIP 2.1 are described in Configuration File
Changes on page 7.

Technical Bulletin
SoundPoint ® IP, SIP 2.1
SIP 2.1 Server Fallback Implementation
In the SIP 2.1 release, the redundancy behavior of Polycom SoundPoint IP and
SoundStation IP phones has been changed and improved by adding the ability
for a single SIP Registration (Line) to be registered to more than one server
concurrently. In previous releases, the phone would only maintain one active
server registration per SIP Registration (Line). The concurrent server
registration capability adds an ability to do a faster and more efficient
hand-over to an independent call server both for incoming as well as outgoing
calls.
To assist in explaining the redundancy behavior, an illustrative example of
how a system may be deployed is defined in the following section.
Example Deployment
A small medium business (SMB) customer uses a hosted IP-Centrex service
from a Service provider. The Service provider has two redundant call servers
at their network operations center (NOC) and uses a DNS server to resolve the
IP addresses of these servers. The SMB customer also has an on-premise router
which has the ability to handle SIP call traffic and has a connection to an
on-site PSTN gateway. This gateway is intended to be used in conditions in
which the Internet connection to the service provider is not working.

Technical Bulletin
SoundPoint ® IP, SIP 2.1
Phone Configuration
The phones at the customer site are configured as follows:
•
Server 1 (the primary server) will be configured with the address of the
service provider call server. The IP address of the server(s) to be used will
be provided by the DNS server. For example:
reg.1.server.1.address="voipserver.serviceprovider.com"
•
Server 2 (the fallback server) will be configured to the address of the
router/gateway that provides the fallback telephony support and is
on-site. For example:
reg.1.server.2.address=172.23.0.1
Note
It is possible to configure the phone for more than two servers per registration, but
you need to exercise caution when doing this to ensure that the phone and network
load generated by registration refresh of multiple registrations do not become
excessive. This would be of particularly concern if a phone had multiple
registrations with multiple servers per registration and it is expected that some of
these servers will be unavailable.
Phone Operation for Registration
After the phone has booted up, it will register to all the servers that are
configured.
Server 1 is the primary server and supports greater SIP functionality than any
of servers. For example, SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY services (used for features such
as shared lines, presence, and BLF) will only be established with Server 1.
Upon registration timer expiry of each server registration, the phone will
attempt to re-register. If this is unsuccessful, normal SIP re-registration
behavior (typically at intervals of 30 to 60 seconds) will proceed and continue
until the registration is successful (for example, when the Internet link is once
again operational). While the primary server registration is unavailable, the
next highest priority server in the list will serve as the working server. As soon
as the primary server registration succeeds, it will return to being the working
server.
Note
If reg.x.server.y.register is set to 0, then phone will not register to that server.
However, the INVITE will fail over to that server if all higher priority servers are
down.
4
Technical Bulletin
SoundPoint ® IP, SIP 2.1
Behavior When the Primary Server Connection Fails
For Outgoing Calls (INVITE Fallback)
When the user initiates a call, the phone will go through the following steps to
connect the call:
1. Try to make the call using the working server.
2. If the working server does not respond correctly to the INVITE, then try
and make a call using the next server in the list (even if there is no current
registration with these servers). This could be the case if the Internet
connection has gone down, but the registration to the working server has
not yet expired.
3. If the second server is also unavailable, the phone will try all possible
servers (even those not currently registered) until it either succeeds in
making a call or exhausts the list at which point the call will fail.
At the start of a call, server availability is determined by SIP signaling failure.
SIP signaling failure depends on the SIP protocol being used as described
below.
Warning
•
If TCP is used, then the signaling fails if the connection fails or the Send
fails.
•
If UDP is used, then the signaling fails if ICMP is detected or if the signal
times out. If the signaling has been attempted with all servers in the list
and this is the last server then the signaling fails after the complete UDP
timeout defined in RFC 3261. If it is not the last server in the list, the
maximum number of retries using the configurable retry timeout is used.
For more information, refer to Server <server/> on page 95 and
Registration <reg/> on page 149 of the SIP 2.0 Administrator's Guide.
If DNS is used to resolve the address for Servers, the DNS server is unavailable,
and the TTL for the DNS records has expired, the phone will attempt to contact the
DNS server to resolve the address of all servers in its list before initiating a call.
These attempts will timeout, but the timeout mechanism can cause long delays (for
example, two minutes) before the phone call proceeds “using the working server”.
To mitigate this issue, long TTLs should be used. It is strongly recommended that
an on-site DNS server is deployed as part of the redundancy solution.
For Incoming Calls (Incoming Call Fallback)
The primary call server can use mechanisms for detecting that the Internet
connection is down and route incoming calls through the PSTN link to the
back-up gateway/router on-site. Since the phone is simultaneously registered
to both servers, it will receive calls through the gateway even if the primary
registration has not expired. This is a key advantage of the new behavior
introduced in SIP 2.1.
5
Technical Bulletin
SoundPoint ® IP, SIP 2.1
Changes From Previous Phone Behavior (Releases Before SIP 2.1)
Before SIP 2.1
In SIP 2.1
A Line is only capable of maintaining
one server registration.
A Line will maintain registrations with
all servers that are configured as
registrar servers.
If two servers are configured (for
example, reg.1.server.1.address =
"server1" and
reg.1.server.2.address =
"server2", the phone will initially
register with Server1 as the working
server. Phone calls will be placed and
received through Server1 only. If the
registration to Server1 fails or expires,
then the phone will attempt to register
with Server2. If this registration
succeeds, then incoming calls will be
received using this server. At this point,
Server2 takes over as the working
server.
If two servers are configured (for
example, reg.1.server.1.address =
"server1" and
reg.1.server.2.address =
"server2", the phone will register with
both Server1 as the working and
Server2. Phone calls will be placed
through Server1, but may be received
through either Server1 or Server2. If
the registration to Server1 fails or
expires, then the Server2 will become
the working server.
The phone will continually attempt
registration using SIP registration
protocols with Server1. At the point that
this succeeds, the registration with
Server2 will expire and Server1 will
resume as the working server.
The phone will continually attempt to
register with Server1 and, when this is
successful, will switch back to using
Server1 as the working server. The
Server2 registration will be maintained.
The phone attempts to maintain full SIP
functionality with each server, but it is
questionable how effective this is.
Only basic SIP registration for INVITE
functions is maintained with servers
other than the primary server.
Recommended Practices for Server Fallback Deployments
The best method for ensuring optimum server redundancy is to deploy two
identical call servers and use either DNS methods or “IP Address Moving”
together with call server recommended practices for maintaining
synchronization of records between the redundant servers. This is termed
fail-over (refer to Terminology on page 2). Deployment varies dependent on
the SIP call server being used. Consult your SIP call server supplier for
recommended practices for fail-over configuration.
In situations where server redundancy for fall-back purpose is used, the
following measures should be taken to optimize the effectiveness of the
solution:
1. Deploy an on-site DNS server to avoid long call initiation delays that can
result if the DNS server records expire.

2. Do not use OutBoundProxy configurations on the phone if the
OutBoundProxy could be unreachable when the fallback occurs.
SoundPoint IP phones can only be configured with one OutBoundProxy
per registration and all traffic for that registration will be routed through
this proxy for all servers attached to that registration. If Server 2 is not
accessible through the configured proxy, call signaling with Server 2 will
fail.
3. Avoid using too many servers as part of the redundancy configuration as
each registration will generate more traffic.
4. Educate users as to the features that will not be available when in
“fallback” operating mode.
Configuration File Changes
Configuration changes can performed centrally at the boot server:
Central
Configuration file: sip.cfg
(boot server)
Specify global primary and fallback server configuration
parameters.
•
Configuration file:
phone1.cfg
For more information, refer to Protocol in Application
Configuration File on page 7.
Specify per registration primary and fallback server configuration
parameters values that override those in sip.cfg.
•
For more information, refer to Registration in Per-Phone
Configuration File on page 8.
Protocol in Application Configuration File
The <voIpProt/> attribute includes:
•
Server <server/> on page 7.
Server <server/>
This configuration attribute now includes:
