This article describes how to configure Avaya Communication Server 1000E R7.6 to interoperate with Zenitel Stentofon Turbine Intercom using SIP Line Gateway- Issue 0.1


The article describe the configuration steps required for Zenitel Stentofon Turbine Intercom to interoperate with Avaya Communication Server 1000E R7.6 using SIP Line Gateway (SLG). The Zenitel Stentofon Turbine Intercom is a door communicator that supports voice transmission using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), in addition to being a door entry device. In the compliance testing, the Zenitel Stentofon Turbine Intercom was set up as a 3rd Party SIP Extension on Avaya Communication Server 1000E and underwent testing of various call scenarios with other Avaya telephones and Zenitel Stentofon Turbine Intercom units.

Configuration example

The illustrated configuration is an example for interoperability of Stentofon with CS 1000E. The CS1000E R7.6 runs on the Common Processor Pentium Mobile (CPPM) server as a co-resident configuration. The SLG application on the signaling server co-resides on the CPPM. Element Manager is used to access the SLG which resides on the Unified Communication Management Server which is accessed through the System Manager. SIP and Unistim Avaya 1140 IP Deskphones were configured. Stentofon Turbine is registered to the SLG as a Third Party SIP Client (SIP3). An ISDN-PRI trunk connects the CS1000E to the PSTN.

Configure Avaya Communication Server 1000E

The configuration operations illustrated in this section are performed using terminal access to the CS1000E over an SSH session. It is implied a working system is already in place and the SIP Line Gateway (SLG) is fully configured. For all other provisioning information such as installation and configuration, please refer to the Avaya product documentation.

Configuring Data block: SLS (SIP Line Services)

Create an SLS Data block using the change command in Overlay 15. Type LD 15 to enter the overlay. The User Agent Prefix (UAPR) is required when configuring the UEXT for each Stentofon Turbine.

Obtain SIP Line information

Certain information will be required in order to configure Stentofon Turbine. This information can be found using the Element Manager associated with the CS1000E. The following information can be found in this section:

  • Telephony LAN (TLAN) Node IP Address
  • SIP Domain Name
  • SLG Local Sip Port

Access the web GUI of the Unified Communication Management server, using the URL http://<fqdn>/SMGR, where “<fqdn> is the fully qualified domain name of System Manager. Log in with the appropriate credentials. Once logged in click Communication Server 1000.

Verification Steps

This section provides the tests that can be performed to verify correct configuration of CS1000E and Stentofon.

Verify Avaya Communication Server 1000E SIP Station Registration

Check the status of the Stentofon Turbine SIP registration by opening an SSH session to the signaling server.

  • Login with the appropriate credentials.
  • At the prompt enter the following command slgSetShowAll.

Example Below shows that the Stentofon Turbine 3020 is registered:

[admin@cs1krp ~]$ slgSetShowAll

=== VTRK ===
UserID           AuthId      TN           Clients  Calls  SetHandle  Pos ID    SIPL Type
---------------  ----------  ---------------  -------  -----  ---------  -------   -----
--------------- IPV4 Endpoints   --------------------------
                3020        3020     100-00-02-00        1      0  0x9ea3f48   SIP Lines
Total User Registered = 1   V4 Registered = 1  V6 Registered = 0

Verify Stentofon SIP Registration

From the Stentonfon Turbine web interface, select Station Information from the left menu. Verify that the Station Status Server Domain (SIP) shows Registered. Place a call to another endpoint to verify basic call operation.
