Document Overview

This document provides configuration information that is useful when connecting a Ribbon Session Border Controller (SBC) Core with Avaya Session Manager 7 (SM7) and Avaya Communication Manager (CM7).

Introduction

The interoperability compliance testing focuses on verifying inbound and outbound call flows between a Ribbon Core SBC and Avaya Session Manager 7 (SM7) and Avaya Communication Manager (CM7) .

Audience

This technical document is intended for telecommunication engineers configuring the Ribbon SBC Core aspects of the AT&T Toll Free SIP trunk group with the Avaya SM7 and CM7. This configuration requires access to a third-party server and the Ribbon SBC Web browser user interface, Embedded Management Application (EMA). Understanding the basic concepts for IP/Routing, SIP, RTP and TLS are also required for completing the configuration and any necessary troubleshooting.

 

Requirements

The sample configuration (see Topology) includes the following equipment and software:

Avaya CM 7 Configuration

Testing verified new configuration data in the following sections:

  1. Node Name
  2. Signaling Group
  3. Trunk Group
  4. Route Pattern
  5. ARS Digit Analysis Table
  6. Station


1. Node Name

  1. Use Site Administration to log into the Avaya CM 7.0.
  2. Type  change node-names ip on the command line.  
  3. Press the Down Arrow key to move to a blank line, and then add the node name information.
  4. Press F3 to save the changes.

Figure : Node Name


2. Signaling Group

  1. Use the Site Administration to log into the Avaya CM 7.0.
  2. Type add signaling-group next on the command line. 

    Note

    The "next" switch will auto-generate the next available group number for the Signaling Group; this is the most efficient method for creating a new Signaling Group.


  3. Confirm the next available Signaling Group information and press F3 to save the changes. For more details, refer to the Avaya CM 7.0 guide.

Figure : Signaling Group

 

3. Trunk Group

  1. Use Site Administratio to log into Avaya CM 7.0.
  2. Type add trunk-group next on the command line.
  3. Type the trunk group information and press F3 to save the changes. For more details, refer to the Avaya CM 7.0 guide.

Figure : Trunk Group

 

4. Route Pattern

  1. Use Site Administration to log into the Avaya CM 7.0.
  2. Type list route-pattern on the command line to determine the next available route pattern.
  3. Identify the route-pattern number you are going to use, and then press F1 to exit the current operation.
  4. Type change route-pattern, and then type the available route pattern number. Press F3 to save the changes.

Figure : Route Pattern


5. ARS Digit Analysis Table

  1. Use Site Administration to log into Avaya CM 7.0.
  2. Type change ars analysis (dialed numberto add or change the handling for a specified called number.
  3. Confirm the changes and press F3 to save. For more details, refer to the Avaya CM 7.0 guide.

6. Station

  1. Use Site Administration to log into Avaya CM 7.0.
  2. Type add station next to add a new station. 
  3. Confirm the changes and press F3 to save. For more details, refer to the Avaya CM 7.0 guide.
