Document Overview

This document provides a configuration guide for Sonus 5XX0 Series (Session Border Controller) when connecting to Sonus Session Border Controller 1000/2000.

 

Introduction

The interoperability compliance testing focuses on verifying inbound and outbound calls flows between Sonus 5XX0 and Sonus Session Border Controller 1000/2000.

Audience

This is a technical document intended for telecommunications engineers with the purpose of configuring both Sonus SBCs. There will be steps that require navigating EMA as well as the Sonus SBC Command Line Interface (CLI). Understanding the basic concepts of TCP/UDP, IP/Routing, and SIP/RTP are also necessary to complete the configuration and for troubleshooting, if necessary.

This configuration guide is offered as a convenience to Sonus customers. The specifications and information regarding the product in this guide are subject to change without notice. All statements, information, and recommendations in this guide are believed to be accurate but are presented without warranty of any kind, express or implied, and are provided “AS IS.” Users must take full responsibility for the application of the specifications and information in this guide.

SIP Calls

 

1. SIP Profile

Select Settings > SIP > SIP Profiles.

SIP Profiles control how the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 communicates with SIP devices. These control important characteristics such as: session timers, SIP Header customization, SIP timers, MIME payloads, and option tags. The default SIP profile used for the SBC 1000/2000 for this testing effort is shown below.

Figure : Default SIP Profile

2. SIP Server

Select Settings > SIP > SIP Server Tables.

SIP Server Tables contain information about the SIP devices connected to the Sonus SBC 1000/2000. The entries in the tables provide information about the IP addresses, ports, and protocols used to communicate with each SIP server. The entries also contain links to counters that are useful for troubleshooting.

3. Media Profile

Select Settings > Media > Media Profiles.

Media Profiles specify the individual voice and fax compression codecs and their associated settings for inclusion into a Media List. Different codecs provide varying levels of compression, allowing the reduction of bandwidth requirements at the expense of voice quality. Listed below are the media profiles of the voice codecs used for the SBC 1000/2000 in this testing effort and are shown for reference only.

4. Media List

Select Settings > Media > Media List.

The Media List shows the selected voice and fax compression codecs and their associated settings.

5. Transformation Table

Select Settings > Transformation.

Transformation Tables facilitate the conversion of names, numbers and other fields when routing a call. For example, transformations can convert a public PSTN number into a private extension number, or into a SIP address (URI). Every entry in a Call Routing Table requires a Transformation Table, and are sequentially selected from there. In addition, Transformation tables are configurable as a reusable pool that Action Sets can reference.

6. Call Routing Table

Select Settings > Call Routing Table.

Call Routing allows calls to be carried between signaling groups, thus allowing calls to be carried between ports, and between protocols (like ISDN to SIP). Routes are defined by Call Routing Tables, which allow for flexible configuration of which calls will be carried, and also how the calls are translated. These tables are one of the central connection points of the system, linking Transformation Tables, Message translations, Cause Code Reroutes, Media Lists and the three types of Signaling Groups (ISDN, SIP and CAS).

7. Signaling Groups

Select Settings > Signaling Groups.

Signaling Groups allow telephony channels to be grouped together for the purposes of routing and shared configuration. These groups are the entity to which calls are routed, as well as the location from which Call Routes are selected. These are also the location from which Tone Tables and Action Sets are selected. In the case of SIP, this will specify protocol settings and link to server, media and mapping tables.
