This guide describes how to configure softphone features (SIP) for ProCall Enterprise in conjunction with a Mitel MiVoice Office 400.

ProCall Enterprisefrom V 6.1
PBX
Mitel MiVoice Office 400

from Version 5.0 HF3
and V6.2

Notes on the estos test environment

The softphone functions (SIP) of ProCall were tested in the estos test environment with the telephone system specified above. The tests were performed with a maximum of two lines per SIP end device. The following information was used during the setup of the telephone system for the login/registration of the individual SIP lines to the UCServer.


Note on codecs and UDP connections

For the connection of SIP lines to the UCServer, the telephone system must support the G.711 a-law codec for the SIP protocol and should have this set as the preferred codec for all end devices.

Only UDP connections are supported.

Note on the use of call forwarding in the UCServer

If the Call Forwarding feature is used in the UCServer, the SIP lines must allow second calls in order to use the Call Forwarding on Busy feature.

Configuration of the telephone system Mitel MiVoice Office 400

Set up as SIP terminal

The SIP lines for ProCall subscribers must be set up as SIP terminals.

Menu – Configuration – Terminal devices – Default terminal devices

Force UDP

The Force use of UDP should be enabled.

If there is a significant delay in the signaling of incoming calls to the SIP softphone line in the ProCall Enterprise client or ProCall Mobile app, the use of Force UDP must be enabled in the PBX configuration.

SIP line registration

Under Connection settings are required for SIP line registration:

  • SIP username
  • SIP password

Note

The SIP username must be IDENTICAL with the extension/phone number assigned to the user.

Send diversion information

The following specifications can be activated here:

  • Yes, with division header (recursing)
    Required to display the "Forwarded by..." information for call forwarding. Information for call forwarding
  • No

Further settings

  • The parameter Keep-alive is supported, but does not have to be activated.
    If the parameter is activated, the PBX cyclically sends a SIP OPTIONS request, which is answered by the UCServer as expected. The parameter can be useful to keep network routes or ports open (e.g. networks are connected via VPN).
  • The Session Replacement parameter is also supported, but must not be enabled because Session Replacement (ReInvite with Replaces header) is not used for a call transfer and otherwise additional SIP messages are exchanged with each outgoing connection setup.
  • The parameter Session refresh or Monitor active connection is supported.
    It is recommended to enable this parameter to monitor active SIP calls via cyclic ReInvite.
    If terminals are removed without regular connection termination, a standing connection can thus be terminated automatically.
  • Conference calls must be set to In Phone in order to initiate conferences via the ProCall softphone.

UCServer configuration

The connection to the PBX is entered under Settings in the UCServer Administration as SIP Softphone connection under Telephony – Lines.

  1. Add telephone system 
    Select the Mitel MiVoice Office 400.
  2. After setting up the connection, all SIP lines must be added under Softphone Registrations.
    For the connection to a Mitel MiVoice Office 400 the following must be specified:

    as username"SIP Username"
    as password "SIP Password"

From ProCall 6.1, please note the following settings

On the SIP connection line group it is possible to define what the UCServer signals to the PBX when:

  • the client is not logged in or call protection is enabled
  • the call is rejected by the client or no devices are available

The required settings depend on the telephone system and its configuration.

Example: The telephone system should redirect incoming calls to the mailbox if the ProCall client is not logged in.

Problem: The PBX does not evaluate the busy here (486) sent by default from the UCServer and the calls are not redirected.

Possible solution: In the PBX, this setting is set up for Subscriber Unavailable, and Temporarily Unavailable (480) is selected for signaling on the UCServer.


Version note

Since estos has no influence on the further development of the supported telephone systems by the manufacturer, we cannot guarantee that the instructions described above will also be fully valid for future releases.
