Overview
This Integration Technical Note (ITN) is written for dealers who are experienced with CallXpress
and are familiar with its procedures and terminology. This document also assumes that you are
familiar with the features and programming of the Alcatel-Lucent telephone system.
This document describes how to integrate CallXpress with an Alcatel-Lucent telephone system,
using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) integration. This integration operates exclusively over
a TCP/IP-based network; it uses no analog or digital voice telephony ports, but passes voice
communication and signaling information over the network.

The Alcatel-Lucent integration is a SIP trunk integration, CallXpress registers itself as a single
voice mail pilot number at the telephone systems SIP proxy. The proxy routes all incoming calls
for CallXpress to that pilot number, and CallXpress assigns them to lines as needed. CallXpress
also sends outbound calls and MWI messages to the pilot number so that the proxy can act on
them.
This ITN documents the procedure for setting up the integration. The process consists of
programming the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise and configuring CallXpress. Critical
application considerations are also documented.
Use this document in conjunction with the Installing CallXpress and Administering CallXpress
guides and with the CallXpress online help system.

Critical Application Considerations


Known limitations or conditions within the telephone system and CallXpress that affect the
integration performance are listed here. General recommendations are provided when ways to
avoid these limitations exist.
If your CallXpress server platform is a component of two or more local or wide area
networks (LANs or WANs), you must make sure that this integration does not interfere
with the normal network operation of the server. By default, CallXpress uses the primary
(public) network interface card (NIC) in the platform, the first NIC in the network binding
order. If you want CallXpress to use a NIC other than the first one, you must make
several required configuration changes. It is much easier to configure the Integration to
use another NIC by simply setting the integration parameter Local IP Address to bind
on to the address of the NIC card connected to the PBX. For more information, refer to
the section, Changing the Network Binding Order.
You must install the Windows Quality of Service (QoS) packet scheduler on the Call
Server platform if you plan to use the QoS feature of CallXpress when integrating with
the DMG. For more information about installing and configuring the QoS packet
scheduler, refer to Windows Help.
CallXpress supports G.729a with support for annex b on the incoming audio stream only.
CallXpress does not transmit annex b packets.
When codec negotiation takes place between CallXpress and the PBX, CallXpress
always offers the G.729a audio format as an option. You may configure G.729a as the
preferred codec in CallXpress; however, the decision whether to use G.729a is always
made by the PBX.
The Call Queuing feature does not transcend the Call Server. Calls may be queued on
multiple Call Servers for the same subscriber but Call Servers do not have knowledge of
calls in the queue on other Call Servers within the system. Callers may be prompted with
specific information about their place in the queue; however, the information pertains to
the specific Call Server on which their call is queued.
You must configure the Hunt Group Access Code in the Switch Section Options dialog
box and must match the Voice Mail Dir. No. configured in the Configure the Voicemail
Settings section.
On PBX versions prior to 9.0, the Call Server Processing Unit must be restarted after
you configure the SIP gateway.
When using Alcatel-Lucent OMNIPCX v9 or higher, the node name of the OXE must be
a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

Configuring Switch Redundancy and Failover


Alcatel-Lucent OXE nodes can be configured for redundancy/failover in multiple ways.
The OXE nodes can be configured to share an IP address
An OXE node whose current role is MAIN, owns the IP address and communicates
with CallXpress and other devices through that IP address. If the roles between the OXE
nodes switch, the ownership of the IP address is also switched in a seamless fashion.
For such a configuration, the switch failover is transparent to CallXpress and it is not
necessary to configure CallXpress for failover.
The OXE nodes can be configured so that they share a common Fully Qualified Domain
Name (FQDN) but separate IP addresses as displayed in the following PBX
programming example of the DNS Delegation Properties dialog box.
NOTE The two OXE nodes may share a common domain name or SRV record instead
of a FQDN.

This is a typical configuration when the servers are geographically separated and are located on
different subnets (also known as spatial redundancy). The DNS server on the IP network is
responsible to resolve the FQDN to an IP address. The DNS server is configured to delegate
the request to the unique OXE nodes for the FQDN associated with the OXE. The OXE node
whose current role is MAIN responds to the DNS queries and provides its IP address. If the
OXE role switches, the node responding to the DNS queries also switches. Therefore, the
switch failover is transparent to CallXpress as long as it is configured to work with FQDN
instead of an IP address. The failover server configuration should be configured to use the
FQDN.
CallXpress can support switch failover even if the OXE nodes are not configured to use a
FQDN. In this case, follow the steps outlined below to configure the IP addresses of the primary
and failover OXE nodes.

To add a failover server


This version of CallXpress enables failover server(s) configuration. You can add one or more
failover servers on the Integrations Options dialog box as follows:
1. From the System Configuration utility click the Integrations tab, highlight the Alcatel-
Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise SIP integration, and then click Edit.
2. From the View drop-down box on the Integration Options dialog box, select Failover
Server Settings. The Integration Options dialog box Failover Server Settings view
displays.

3. Click the Add Failover Server button. Two new rows are added to configure the
secondary SIP server.
4. In the Failover Server Settings view, enter Secondary SIP Server Address and the
Secondary SIP Server Port.

4. At the confirmation prompt, click Yes to confirm the deletion. If multiple servers are
listed, the last one on the list is deleted first.
5. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Integration Options dialog box.

Completing the Integration


Now you are ready to finish installing CallXpress. See the guides Installing CallXpress and
Administering CallXpress, or refer to the CallXpress online help system, for instructions. For
general information on integrations, you may also wish to consult Integrating CallXpress with
the Telephone System, in the guide Installing CallXpress, and the topic Integrate the
Telephony Server with the telephone system, in the online help system.

Changing the Network Binding Order on the


CallXpress Platform
If your CallXpress server platform is a component of two or more local or wide area networks
(LANs or WANs), you must make sure that this integration does not interfere with the normal
network operation of the server. By default, CallXpress uses the primary (public) network
interface card (NIC) in the platform, the first NIC in the network binding order. If you want
CallXpress to use a NIC other than the first one, you must make several required configuration
changes. It is much easier to configure the Integration to use another NIC by simply setting the
integration parameter Local IP Address to bind on to the address of the NIC card connected to
the PBX.
NOTE The operating system gives precedence to the first network connection in the list followed
by the remaining connections based on their position in the list.

The instructions in this section ensure that the binding order is correct when you set up the
integration. However, if you replace a NIC on the CallXpress server platform later, the platform's
operating system registers the new adapter at the bottom of its binding order. Restoring the
original binding order should correct any problems caused by the change.
IMPORTANT The following procedure shifts the binding order of the network interface cards. To
determine which NIC is associated with a specific network connection, right-click the connection
in the Network Connections window, and then select Properties.

Windows Server 2003
