What's New in IP Office Manager Release 9.1
Avaya introduced IP Office Manager Release 9.1 on December 22, 2014. As we all know from working with IP Office Manager, every new release brings changes to its GUI. Use this white paper to help you prepare to install and administer IP Office Manager 9.1.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Line Simplification
SIP Line configuration parameters have been reorganized. The standard line tabs now contain only those parameters that are commonly used for most deployment scenarios. A new SIP Advanced tab and a new SIP Engineering tab now contain the less common configuration parameters, usually reserved for expert users and support personnel.
SIP Line Silence Suppression
The SIP Line | Advanced tab now contains a Send SilenceSupp=Off check box. This is used for the G711 codec. When checked, the silence suppression off attribute is sent in Session Description Protocol (SDP) on this trunk.
IP-DECT Line Resiliency
The IP-DECT Line | Gateway tab now contains configuration fields for Enable Resiliency. If resiliency is enabled, you can enable the option Backs Up My IP-DECT Phones on the IP Office Line tab.
Suppress NoCallerId Alarm
The NoCallerId alarm can be suppressed using a NoUser source number. For a description of source numbers, see User | Source Numbers.
Directory Overrides Barring
Call barring can be overridden for numbers entered in the external directory. The configuration setting Directory Overrides Barring has been added to the System | Telephony | Telephony tab.
Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) for Analog Trunks
An MWI using a Bellcore FSK MWI signal is now supported for analog trunks that terminate on an ATM4U-V2 card. The configuration setting is located at Extension | Analog | Message Waiting Lamp Indication Type.
Toll Bypass Prevention
A configuration procedure has been added for preventing toll bypass in Branch and Small Community Network (SCN) environments.
An override option has been added to allow for a manual override of the time profile. There are also latch active/inactive options to activate/deactivate the time profile.
A time profile can be associated with a hunt group. When outside the time profile, the hunt group is automatically placed into night service. When inside the time profile, the hunt group uses manually selected mode.
The User | User tab now contains a Web collaboration check box. When enabled, it allows the user to use the Web collaboration application on one-X Portal on Linux.
Under the User | User tab, there is a Web Self-Administration check box. When enabled, users can log in to the IP Office Manager via the Web address. They can configure the following settings: User, Voicemail, Do Not Disturb, Forwarding, Mobility, Personal Directory, and Button Programming. Access to these settings is controlled by the Administrator with choices to either make settings visible or allow the end user to change the configuration.
Answer and Disconnect Supervision
The System | Telephony | Tones and Music tab now contains an Analog Trunk VAD check box. Select this option to enable Voice Activity Detection (VAD) for analog trunks terminating on the ATM4U-V2 card. VAD functionality provides a Call Answer signal triggered by voice activity.
Third-Party Voice Quality Monitoring
The Real-Time Control Protocol (RTCP) collector IP address for phones field has been added to the LAN | VoIP tab. This setting enables you to send the RTCP data collected to a third-party QoS monitoring application.
Enable Remote Working
On the User | User tab, the Enable Remote Worker option does not need to be enabled for users with SIP phones if an Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise (ASBCE) is deployed in the network to allow remote workers to register their SIP phone from a remote location.
On the System | Voicemail tab, you can use the Outcalling Control setting to enable or disable system wide outcalling on Voicemail Pro.
