Server Redundancy for a Registered Line

You can now configure a fallback server for a registered line on your phones. Procedure

  • Open the configuration file.
  • Set the phone to send a SIP required to the server that sent the proxy authentication request in the event of a failover. Replace x with the desired line key value.
  • req.x.auth.optimizedInFailover="1"
    • Configure the mode for failover failback. Replace x with the desired link key value.
     

     

    Note: This setting overrides the configuration  for reg.x.server.y.failOver.failBack.mode.

    Set one of the following values:

    • duration (default) - The phone tries the primary server again after the time specified by reg.x.outboundProxy.failOver.failBack.timeout expires.
    • newRequests – The phone forwards all new requests first to the primary server regardless of the last used server.
    • DNSTTL - The phone tries the primary server again after a timeout equal to the DNS TTL you configured for the server the phone is registered to.
    reg.x.outboundProxy.failOver.failBack.mode="<value>"
    • Configure the time to wait, in seconds before failback occurs. Replace x with the desired line key value.
     

     

    Note: This setting overrides the configuration for reg.x.server.y.failOver.failBack.timeout. 

    The default is 3200. The value range is 0 (no timeout), and 60 to 65535.

    req.x.outboundProxy.failOver.failBack.timeout="<value>"
    • Enable the global and per-line reRegisterOn parameter. The existing registrations remain active.

    Replace x with the desired line key value.

    reg.x.outboundProxy.failOver.failRegistrationOn="0"
    • Enable the global and per-line reRegisterOn and failRegistrationOn parameters. Signaling is accepted from and sent to a server that has failed. Replace x with the desired line key value.
    reg.x.outboundProxy.failOver.onlySignalWithRegistered="0"
    • Configure the phone to attempt to register with (or via, for the outbound proxy scenario), the secondary server. Replace x with the desired line key value.
     

    Note: This parameter overrides reg.x.server.y.failOver.reRegisterOn. 

    reg.x.outboundProxy.failOver.failRegistrationOn="1"
    • Configure the SIP server port to which the phone sends all requests. Replace x with the desired line key value.

    The default is 0. The value range is 65535.

    reg.x.outboundProxy.port="<value>"
    • Configure the transport method the phone uses to communicate with the SIP server. Replace x with the desired line key value:

    DNSnaptr (default)

    TCPpreferred

    UDPOnly

    TLS TCPOnly 
    reg.x.outboundProxy.transport="<value>"​
  • 10 Configure the phone to register concurrently with other servers for the registration. Replace x with the desired line key value. Replace y with the desired server key value. Note that by default, the phone adds the value you specify for y to the set of redundant failover servers.
     

     

    By default, parameter reg.x.server.y.failOver.concurrentRegistration=0, which adds

    the value you specify for y to the set of redundant failover servers. If you want to register the server Note:

    concurrently with  other servers, set reg.x.server.y.failOver.concurrentRegistration=1.

     
    reg.x.server.y.failOver.concurrentRegistration="1"

    11 Save the configuration file.

 

New Zoom Phone “Warm Transfer” Interoperation

SIP messaging for consultative transfers, also known as “warm transfers,” on phones that support Zoom services must now include call routing information when starting a warm transfer and forwarding the new call to the transfer target. You must add the new routingid key to all phones that use this feature.

The following examples show updates to the Call-Info header to include the new routingid key:

Example 1: Incoming call from a transferee to transferor (routing information within the INVITE message)

Transferor devices receive the INVITE from the transferee with a Call-Info header.  

Call-Info: <action=dialog>;routingid=xx;sid=xx;server=10.10.4.22;set=10.10.4.18;siplb=q a01sipsj01;xx

Example 2: Outbound call from transferor to transferee (routing information within the 200 OK message)

Transferor devices receive the answer 200 OK with a Call-Info header from the transferee. 

Call-Info: <action=dialog>;routingid=xx;sid=xx;server=10.10.4.22;set=10.10.4.18;siplb=q a01sipsj01;xx   

Example 3: Warm transfer (transferor sending the INVITE to the desired transfer target)

Transferor devices must send their INVITE to the transfer target with the Call-Info header containing the routing information they received from either of the above messages (routingid).

INVITE sip:1234@889900.zoomcloudpbx.com;transport=TLS
SIP/2.0 xxxx Call-Info: action=transfer;routingid=xx xxxx

In this scenario, you must also add the action=transfer parameter to the Call-Info header.

 

Note: The following instructions for “Factory Reset” and “Access the Updater Menu” apply to the new VVX 250, 350, and 450 hardware models. You can identify the new models by reviewing the information in the new Shipping Configuration Engineering Advisory: Product Shipping Configuration Change for VVX Series (EA210826).

 

Factory Reset

You can perform a factory reset during bootup. 

Procedure

  • Power on, power cycle, or reboot the phone.
  • Immediately after the headset and hands-free LEDs turn on and off, press and hold the 1-3-5 multiple key combination (MKC) on the dialpad until the factory reset screen appears.
  • Enter the admin password. If you don’t have the admin password, you can enter the MAC address instead. The MAC address is located at the back of the phone.
  • Press Ok.

Performing a factory reset during boot up also results in a file system format. The phone recovers and the application runs afterwards. 

Access the Updater Menu 

You can access the Updater menu during bootup.

Procedure

  • Power on, power cycle, or reboot the phone.
  • Immediately after the headset and hands-free LEDs turn off, press and hold the 1-3-5 MKC until the factory reset screen appears.
  • Press Cancel a few times, until the countdown screen appears.
  • Press Setup.
  • Enter the admin password.
  • Press Ok.
