Avaya IP Office SIP Trunk ConfigurationGuideValcom Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) VIP devices are compatible with SIP-enabled versions of Avaya IP Office (5.0and higher). The Valcom device can be added to the IP Office system as a SIP Trunk. Valcom devices with multiple SIPchannels may be configured in a one-to-many arrangement, where one Avaya SIP Trunk Channel can service multipleSIP identities on a single Valcom device. Call routing will be determined using Short Codes. Each Avaya SIP TrunkChannel instance allows one concurrent call over the IP connection.These instructions cover the minimum configuration necessary for a Valcom SIP-enabled device. Refer to Avayadocumentation for details on SIP services and entering SIP Trunk Channel License information. Other settings may alsobe necessary, depending on your specific system environment.The following steps outline the typical configuration process:1. Open the Avaya IP Office Manager application and connect to the IP Office server where the new SIP trunk willbe created. In the Navigation pane, click on the Line category.2. Click the New iconin the upper-right corner of the Details pane, and choose SIP Line to open a new Detailspane. In the Line Number field, accept the default or enter a new number. In the ITSP IP Address field, enter theIP address of the Valcom device that will be the destination for calls on this trunk. Set the Layer 4 Protocolselection to UDP.For this example, SIP Line 9 is being created and will send calls to IP address 192.168.96.237. The protocol willbe UDP and will connect to port 5060 on the Valcom device.03/24/2010Page 1 of 7
