Enabling Small Community Networking
Setup the VoIP Line from System A to System B
On System A, receive the system configuration.
Click the Line configuration form to display a list of existing lines.
Right-click on the displayed list and select New.
In the Line tab for the VoIP line set the following:
Set a unique Line Number.
In the Telephone Number field, enter a description of the link.
Set the Outgoing Group ID to a unique value.
In the VoIP tab for the VoIP line, set the following:
Ensure that Voice Networking is ticked. This enables the exchange of directory and user information between the IP Office systems and is the key enabler of Small Community Networking.
For the Gateway IP Address enter the IP address of System B.
Select the preferred Compression Mode. The same mode must be used by all VoIP lines and extensions within the network.
Check that the H450 Support option is set to H450. This enables various Supplementary Signaling Services across the VoIP connection. QSIG can be used if H450 is not supported across the VoIP connection. However QSIG supports fewer supplementary signaling features.
Do not change any other options from their default settings without testing. For Small Community Networking Enable Fast Start and Local Tones should not be used.
Load the configuration and reboot System A. Note: Configuration changes and additions to VoIP line settings cannot be merged.
Setup the VoIP Line from System B to System A
On the remote system, repeat the previous steps to create a VoIP VPN link to System A.
Ensure that the Compression Mode selected in the VoIP tab of the VoIP line is the same at both the central and remote system.
Load the configuration and reboot the remote IP Office.
Test Small Community Networking
Test by making calls between extensions on the different systems.
