1. IntroductionThese Application Notes describe the steps to configure Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)Trunking for an enterprise solution using Avaya IP Office 10.0 to interoperate with the CharterSpectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service (legacy Time Warner Cable Platform).For brevity, from this point forward, the Charter Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service(legacy Time Warner Cable Platform) will be referred to as the Spectrum Enterprise SIPTrunking Service.The Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service referenced within these Application Notes isdesigned for business customers. Customers using this service with the IP Office solution areable to place and receive PSTN calls via a broadband WAN connection using the SIP protocol.This converged network solution is an alternative to traditional PSTN trunks such as analogand/or ISDN-PRI trunks. This approach generally results in lower cost for the enterprise.2. General Test Approach and Test ResultsThe general test approach was to connect a simulated enterprise site via the public Internet andexercise the features and functionality listed in Section 2.1. The simulated enterprise site wascomprised of Avaya IP Office and various Avaya endpoints listed in Section 4.The Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service passed compliance testing withobservations/limitations described in Section 2.2.DevConnect Compliance Testing is conducted jointly by Avaya and DevConnect members. Thejointly-defined test plan focuses on exercising APIs and/or standards-based interfaces pertinentto the interoperability of the tested products and their functionalities. DevConnect ComplianceTesting is not intended to substitute full product performance or feature testing performed byDevConnect members, nor is it to be construed as an endorsement by Avaya of the suitability orcompleteness of a DevConnect member’s solution.2.1. Interoperability Compliance TestingTo verify SIP trunking interoperability, the following features and functionality were coveredduring the interoperability compliance test: Establishment and registration of the SIP trunkDynamic AuthenticationSIP OPTIONS queries and responsesIncoming PSTN calls (via the SIP trunk) to SIP and H.323 telephones at the enterpriseOutgoing PSTN calls (via the SIP trunk) from SIP and H.323 telephones at the enterpriseInbound and outbound PSTN calls to/from Avaya Communicator for Windows andAvaya Communicator for WebVarious call types including: local, long distance, outbound toll-free, operator, operatorassisted and local directory assistance (411)CTM; Reviewed:SPOC 2/10/2017Solution & Interoperability Test Lab Application Notes 2017 Avaya Inc.

Codec G.711MUCaller ID presentation and Caller ID restrictionDTMF transmission using RFC 2833Response to incomplete call attempts and trunk errorsVoicemail navigation using DTMF input for inbound and outbound callsVoicemail message waiting indicator (MWI)User features such as hold and resume, internal call forwarding, transfer, and conferenceOff-net call forwarding and twinning (mobility)T.38 and G.711 faxLong duration calls and simultaneous active callsThe following items are not supported or were not tested: The G.729 codec is not supported by the Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service onthis platform.The use of the SIP REFER method for network call redirection is not currently supportedby the Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service on this platform; therefore SIP REFERwas not tested.Emergency calls (911), international calls and inbound toll-free calls are supported butwere not tested as part of the compliance test. International calls were blocked in the testenvironment.2.2. Test ResultsInteroperability testing of the Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service was completed withsuccessful results for all test cases with the exception of the observations/limitations describedbelow. One-way audio was observed on some redirected calls: In various scenarios whereinbound calls were redirected back to the PSTN, the redirected call sometimes resulted inone-way audio. Upon investigation, Charter reported that the audio was lost afterhanding the call off to the back-end PSTN provider. Thus, the failure was not the result ofan interoperability issue between Avaya and Charter. If the problem should occur at acustomer site, a trouble ticket would be opened by Charter with the back-end PSTNcarrier to resolve the issue.CTM; Reviewed:SPOC 2/10/2017Solution & Interoperability Test Lab Application Notes 2017 Avaya Inc.

3. Reference ConfigurationFigure 1 illustrates the sample configuration used for the DevConnect compliance testing. Thesample configuration shows an enterprise site connected to the Spectrum Enterprise SIPTrunking Service.The enterprise site contains an Avaya IP Office 500 V2 with various endpoints and a WindowsPC running both Avaya IP Office Manager to configure Avaya IP Office and Avaya VoiceMailPro for voicemail. In addition, the Avaya IP Office Application Server is present to support useof Avaya Communicator for Web (WebRTC client). For the compliance test, Avaya IP Office isdeployed in a 2-port configuration. The Avaya IP Office LAN1 port is connected to the privateenterprise LAN and the WAN (LAN2) port is connected to the public network.Figure 1: Avaya Interoperability Test Lab ConfigurationCTM; Reviewed:SPOC 2/10/2017Solution & Interoperability Test Lab Application Notes 2017 Avaya Inc.

For security purposes, any public IP addresses or PSTN routable phone numbers used in thecompliance test are not shown in these Application Notes. Instead, public IP addresses havebeen replaced with private addresses and all phone numbers have been replaced with numbersthat cannot be routed over the PSTN.For the purposes of the compliance test, users dialed a prefix digit 9 plus N digits to send anoutbound call to the number N across the SIP trunk to the service provider. The short code of 9was stripped off by Avaya IP Office and the remaining N digits were sent to the service providernetwork. For calls within the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), the user dialed 11 (1 10) digits for long distance and local calls. Thus, for these NANP calls, Avaya IP Office sent 11digits in the Request URI and the To header of an outbound SIP INVITE message.The Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service sends an 11 digit number in the Request-URI andthe To header in an inbound SIP INVITE message.In an actual customer configuration, the enterprise site may also include additional networkcomponents between the service provider and the enterprise network such as a data firewall. Acomplete discussion of the configuration of these devices is beyond the scope of theseApplication Notes. However, it should be noted that SIP and RTP traffic between the serviceprovider and Avaya IP Office must be allowed to pass through these devices.The administration of the Avaya Voicemail Pro messaging service and endpoints on Avaya IPOffice are standard. Since these configuration tasks are not directly related to the inter-operationwith the Spectrum Enterprise SIP Trunking Service, they are not included in these ApplicationNotes.CTM; Reviewed:SPOC 2/10/2017Solution & Interoperability Test Lab Application Notes 2017 Avaya Inc.
