IP Office Standard Mode
The following is a summary of the major changes in IP Office Release 6.1 standard mode operation for IP Office Manager and IP Office core software.
IP Office Manager Enhancements for Multi Site Management
For IP Office systems configured in a Small Community Network (SCN), IP Office Manager now supports a range of features to simplify management of those systems. This includes being able to open and edit the configuration of multiple systems at the same time and using a graphic view of the SCN to add and edit links between the systems.
IP Office Manager has been enhanced to support the following features for a multi-site deployment:
- Manage multiple IP Offices from a single instance of IP Office Manager
- Support for up-to 32 IP Office PBXs and 1000 users across the 32 nodes
- Secure connectivity to get the latest configuration from multiple IP Offices on the same IP Office manager instance
- Connectivity status between nodes using Ping Central discovery and view of inventory of all IP Office nodes across multi site configuration
- Common sign-on Administrator credentials for Single Sign On (SSO)
- Add/Delete IP Office nodes to/from multi-site configuration
- Graphical display of connectivity of multiple nodes with option to select custom background image for the graphical display (such as world-map, state map, or campus map)
- Back-up configuration for all nodes in the multi-site configuration and offline provisioning
- Aggregated views across all nodes in the multi-site configuration for Users, Hunt Groups, User Rights, and Time Profiles
- *Unique Extension* Validation across Multiple IP Office nodes in the multi site configuration
- A single IP Office node is treated as a special case of multi-site management and supports all the features that are provided if IP Office is installed as a standalone device
SIP Trunk Enhancements
IP Office R6.1 continues to evolve a rich feature set of SIP trunk capabilities with enhancements that will facilitate certification with a broader range of Service Providers, to support both new and installed base IP Office sales opportunities.
The SIP trunk enhancements delivered with IP Office R6.1 include:
- Outbound Proxy with enhanced DNS - SRV look-up, multiple records (RFC 3263)
IP Office will now support the entry of Service Provider proxy addresses in various formats. A new tab is added to the SIP configuration form labeled "Transport". It contains four new fields: ITSP Proxy Address; Explicit DNS Server; Call Route via Registrar; and, separate registrar.
- ITSP Proxy Address
ITSP proxy address is used for SIP calls. A list of up to four IP addresses is supported, with each address separated by a comma or space. If left blank, the ITSP Domain Name is used and resolved by DNS, similar to if a DNS address had been specified. Addresses can include an indication of relative call weight (each address weight is compared to others).
- Explicit DNS Server
If specific DNS servers should be used for SIP trunk operation rather than the general DNS server specified or obtained for the IP Office system, the server addresses can be specified. If Explicit DNS Server(s) are configured, a DNS request will be sent out to see whether the proxy server has disappeared from those being offered.
- Call Route via Registrar
If selected, SIP registrations are balanced according to the weight of each resolved proxy. Once registered, all the calls are made to go through the proxy where the associated registration has occurred. All calls are routed via the same proxy as used for registration so the balancing is applied to registrations, versus calls. If multiple ITSP proxy addresses have been applied, the weighting for those addresses is applied to the registrations.
- Separate Registrar
This field allows the SIP registrar address to be specified if it is different from that of the SIP proxy. The address can be specified as an IP address or DNS name. A proxy server is considered Active once the IP Office has received a response to an INVITE, REGISTER or OPTIONS. A Proxy server is considered Active - In Maintenance if the server responds to INVITE with 503-Service Unavailable.
- P-Asserted Identity for each out-going call
The P-Asserted ID header is now configurable per SIP out-going call (SIP URI configuration item). The possible values include: None; Use Authentication Name; Use Internal Data; or, Free Form (any user input). This allows the administrator to control the display name and user name of "from" and "PAI" headers separately. In order for this feature to work, Send Caller ID must not be set to P-Asserted ID.
- Diversion header for call forward
Diversion header for call forward will allow the CLID of the original caller to be preserved in the case of an external call forward. This feature provides CLIP and CLIR feature to forwarded calls, which was previously available only to twinning. The feature is available to any type of Send Caller ID (Remote Party ID, PAI - discouraged). Customers using a mobile twinning CLIR feature will use this feature automatically after upgrade (no special configuration is required). There is flexible configuration for mapping the incoming caller number to a caller number applicable to the SIP trunk:
- The caller number can be pre-defined on the trunk.
- If the trunk users internal data and the caller in internal, the number will be mapped to the SIP trunk internal data.
- Reverse route look-up will be attempted for all group ID's belonging to that trunk.
- For external calls, prefix manipulation will be used.
- Hosted NAT Traversal
VoIP protocols do not traverse NATs very well, partly because VoIP protocol uses IP addresses and ports in application layer protocol messages. NAT compensation is required to allow VoIP protocols to traverse the NAT. When IP Office is deployed behind a NAT, something has to compensate for the NAT. IP Office R6.1 provides a way to compensate for local NAT, which works with any type of NAT and relies on static port forwarding in the NAT.
- If the call is coming from SIP and destination is on SIP, it is possible that SIP Relay will be used. Depending on firewall configuration, this might result in no speech path (RTP packets will never be sent because the firewall is blocking every received packet).
- IP Office will now generate UDP packets with no data using the same source and destination address and port that the RTP would use. This method can be deployed in the initial packets and can be performed periodically.
- SIP REFER based on configuration options in addition to auto-discovery
In previous releases SIP REFER worked on an auto discovery methodology. In IP Office R6.1 configuration is added for both incoming and outgoing REFERs. There will be a new group box on the SIP Tab called REFER support that will be enabled with a checkbox. When enabled, it will have 2 combo boxes, Incoming and Outgoing both will have values Never, Always and Auto. Please note that REFER method on the SIP trunk interface is supported for Attended type of transfers, not for Blind transfer (redirection).
- Video on SIP trunks
Video is now supported on SIP trunks (per RFC 4566). IP Office will tunnel video data end to end using either the SIP protocol or proprietary fields on multi-site networking trunks. End points will be responsible for negotiation and IP Office will not limit the choice of video codecs. IP Office will not perform any type of bandwidth management. RTP/RTCP data for video might be routed by IP Office.Video traffic will be routed using the same rules as for routing audio traffic. In the event that video transport addresses are multicast, no routing will be performed. If the trunk is configured to use STUN, unicast video addresses will be replaced with resolved addresses.
- SIP credentials
IP Office will use configured fields when registering or making calls (if that is configured on the SIP URI tab). IP Office will perform selective registration of credentials depending on the checkbox. A new configuration Contact field has been added. If not specified, the User Name will be used instead. The User Name and Authentication name can contain a domain name (can be FQDNs). For contact name, Domain name will always be the IP Office IP address or domain. SIP credentials are merge-able in IP
Office R6.1 so adding/modifying/deleting a credential will not require a reboot.
Music on Hold
Prior to IP Office Release 6.1, four Music on Hold sources was achieved by using the single external MoH audio input socket and 3 internal .wav files. The number of MoH sources remains at 4 sources, however, IP Office Release 6.1 introduces the ability to program up to 3 analog station ports as MoH source. IP Office Release 6.1 systems can have a combination of internal .wav files and analog station ports, not to exceed 3 in total. Additionally, any MoH source can be set for outbound calls (accomplished through the use of Short Codes). Analog extension ports (except those on PARTNER ETR base card) will have a new classification 'MoH Source' enabling the MoH functionality through that extension port. Analog extensions classified as MoH Source count as extensions for licensing upgrades. Within the Manager application, analog extensions configured as a MoH source are represented with a specific icon.
Trunk Diagnostics
IP Office Release 6.1 introduces the ability to generate/analyze BERT test patterns on IP500 PRI Trunk cards (single and dual) on a channel or circuit basis. B E R T is the abbreviation for Bit Error Rate Test.
NTP Time Service
New in IP Office R6.1 is the ability to have each PBX gets its time from an NTP time server, along with configurable automatic adjustment for daylight savings time.

For IP Office Release 6.1, IP Office Essential Edition - PARTNER® Version has the following enhancements:
