Understanding Cisco Unity Bridge and Avaya Interoperability


About cisco unity bridge

About Cisco Unity Bridge

  • Gateway between Cisco Unity and Octel node on Octel analog network

  • Bridge communicates with

    • Octel node using Octel analog protocol

    • Cisco Unity using digital networking

  • A separate license from the Cisco Unity license

    • In multiple Cisco Unity installations, only one server needs to be configured for Cisco Unity Bridge (bridgehead).

    • Message traffic may dictate multiple Cisco Unity Bridge servers for load balancing.

  • Cisco Unity Bridge is installed on a dedicated hardware platform.

Octel Networking

  • Digital or analog networking

  • Peer-to-peer topology

  • Each node assigned a serial number below 65535

  • Directory synchronized when messages are sent between users

Summary

Summary

  • Cisco Unity Bridge is used to send messages between the Avaya Octel system and Cisco Unity.

  • Octel networking is the networking between Octel nodes over a proprietary protocol.

  • Cisco Unity bridge networking is the ability to use Cisco Unity Bridge to send messages between the Cisco Unity and Avaya networks.

  • Cisco Unity bridge networking with a remote Cisco Unity Bridge means that Cisco Unity Bridge can be located across the WAN so that it can be collocated with the Avaya system.

  • Multi-node Octel networking is defined as multiple Octel nodes networked together.

  • Cisco Unity Bridge in Multinode Octel networking allows the Bridge to act like part of the Octel network so that it is treated like a peer.


Summary cont

Summary (Cont.)

  • “Collapsing a node” means removing an Octel node and replacing it with a Cisco Unity node that will use Cisco Unity Bridge to communicate with the remaining Octel network.

  • Avaya Interchange can take on the function of a protocol translator, taking in VPIM and AMIS, then translating the information to the Octel networking format.

  • Cisco Unity Bridge can be a part of multinode Octel networking with Interchange.

  • When collapsing a node with Interchange, Cisco Unity Bridge will look like an Octel node, and the collapsed node will use Cisco Unity Bridge to get to the Octel network.

  • Using Avaya Interchange and other Avaya products, it is possible to create a digital Octel network (Octel to Octel).
