Scope

This article contains all required information for configuring Imagicle Advanced Queuing and call distribution + Imagicle Attendant Console in Avaya IP office telephony environments, with focus on SIP and CTI-based communications.

Avaya limitations

The following CTI-related actions from Imagicle Attendant Console are not supported, due to Avaya IP Office PBX limitations:

  • Blind transfer (SIP Trunk) is not supported. See below specific cases where Imagicle actually use it:
    • Overflow to a phone number upon closed queue, queue timeout or no available agents.
    • Imagicle Auto Attendant "Transfer to" behavior.
  • Native call parking is not supported. Imagicle Camp-On queue is implemented instead

Avaya IP Office Configurations

Imagicle solution for Avaya IP Office requires the installation, in the Imagicle UC Suite, of standard Avaya IP Office TAPI Service Provider (TSP). Please access to Avaya IP Office System Administrator page and download IP Office TSP from AppCenter:

Access to Imagicle UC Suite server via RDP session and copy downloaded .exe file in your Imagicle UC Suite's Desktop. Don't run the installer yet and follow below procedure.

Avaya TAPI Enablement

Open AvayaIPOffice Manager and select Edit ⇒ Security Settings ⇒ System ⇒ Switch name (your PBX)

Under "Unsecured Interfaces", you can find various access passwords and enablement flags.

Please check TAPI/DevLink3 flag and make sure you know the System Password, to be used in the Avaya TSP configuration. See below sample:

SIP Trunk toward UC Suite Configuration

Calls to Imagicle Advanced Queuing are transferred to Imagicle UC Suite through a SIP trunk defined in Avaya. This must be configured without encryption and without authentication, using UDP port 5062.

SIP trunk must have REFER signaling enabled, configured under "SIP Line" tab as per below sample:

Under "Transport" tab, please add Imagicle UC Suite IP address and UDP Port 5062, as per below sample:

Under "SIP Advanced" tab, please set "Call Routing Method" as To Header. See below:

Please note that Avaya SIP license must allow for a number of simultaneous conversations equal to the number of Advanced Queuing channels.

For each queue defined in Advanced Queuing, a route must be added in Avaya IP Office. An additional route is also needed to manage the Camp-on Park, based on the chosen prefix.

You can download here an IP Office configuration file, to be intended as a reference sample.
