    1. Avaya Aura™ Communication Manager Release 6.0 Overview Mike Gerardi - Sunturn

    2. Communication Manager 6.0 Deployment Options Defined • In R6.0, Communication Manager is deployed in two modes: • Feature server (In conjunction with Session Manager) • Evolution server (Access for endpoints & trunks) • Material Code and Price is the same for both • Since they are just administrable options for the same software • Simple to administer • Just a single field in the CM SIP trunk configuration to Avaya AuraTMSession Manager • Must purchase Session Manager hardware to deploy Communication Manager as a feature server • Must purchase Session Manager to deploy SIP terminals with the evolution server option • SIP Phones register to Session Manager

    3. Communication Manager 6.0 Deployment Options Compared • Feature server is the descriptor for the option of deploying Communication Manager 6.0 in the core or remote, in half call model, supporting only SIP endpoints with full application sequencing • SIP Endpoints register with Session Manager • Communication Manager employs the half call model • Supports only G450/G430 gateways • Supports full application sequencing • Evolution server is the descriptor for the option of deploying CM 6.0 in the core or remote, in full call model, supporting both SIP and non-SIP endpoints with limited application sequencing • H.323/Digital/Analog endpoints register with Communication Manager • SIP endpoints register with Session Manager • All endpoints receive service from Communication Manager • Only supports implicit sequencing (limited application sequencing) • Communication Manager employs the full call model • Supports all current Communication Manager gateways and Port Networks

    13. Communication Manager on System Platform • All instances of Communication Manager 6.0 run on System Platform • CM is in its own virtualized machine (VM) and does not “own the hardware” • All platform (Server-type) items managed by System Platform • Installation via a solution template (CM with BSM & …) after System Platform installed • The five CM 6.0 templates are all packaged in a single CM_super.iso • CM_Duplex, CM_Simplex, CM_onlyEmbed, CM_SurvRemote, CM_SurvRemoteEmbed

    14. Software Installation and Access to Media • If the customer chooses to download software from Avaya • Customer/partner will go to the download pages on support.avaya.com which will be linked to PLDS • the CM pages look a lot like they do today for CM 5.x. • Download & utilize pre-migration patches (per previous CM release) • as needed to migrate data (used in migration restore step) • migrations from CM 5.2.1, 5.2.0 and 5.1.2 supported • Customer/partner will download System Platform (SP) 6.0, burn a .ISO DVD & install System Platform on the server • Insert the bootable SP.ISO DVD into the server’s drive • Walk thru nominal questions, e.g. VLAN assignments

    15. Software Installation and Access to Media • Download the Installation Wizard to collect CM initial configuration data/information • Install Wizard is customized per template to gather user inputs: IP addresses, hostnames, proxy, DNS servers, initial cust login, etc. • Install Wizard runs standalone w/o server hardware, run on PC • Save EPW file to import initial CM configuration data at install • Download the CM super.ISO package of five CM 6.0 templates • Or utilize System Platform Console to reach PLDS directly • Bring License file and Authentication file to System Platform (SP) • WebLM Server contained on System Platform

    16. Software Installation and Access to Media • Install one of the templates via System Platform Console • Initial template install will initialize the Install Wizard • Import saved EPW information • Else real-time Install Wizard will prompt for initial configuration data – THIS IS REQUIRED • Configure CM and other applications through standard interfaces accessed directly into the VM • CM and CMM use SAT, SMI Web Pages, ProVision, etc. • BSM uses Avaya AuraTM System Manager • Utility Services Web Pages

    17. Software Installation and Access to Media • If the customer chooses to receive physical media, there are optional orderable items: • System Platform.ISO DVD • CM_super.ISO DVD • RAID conversion CDs that are needed for server configuration set-up/changes for S8800 and certain S8510 migrations • Customer/Partner will still have to download the following from support.avaya.com or PLDS, Product Licensing and Delivery System • pre-install patches, service packs, firmware updates, etc. 

    18. System Platform (SP) – Provides • Use WebConsole • Installation • Upgrading between templates / releases • Once the first template is installed • Additional details System Platform Architecture, Administration and Maintenance by Prasad Subramanian

    19. System Platform (SP) – Provides • Remote Access utilizing SAL, Secure Access Link • IP (internet) only, No modem support • Avaya exclusively uses SAL for remote access • Hardware interface for reliability • System Platform has VM restart capabilities • No SAMP, Server Availability Management Processor, support • Remove the SAMP from the migrated s8510 • System Platform interfaces with S8800 IPMI, Intelligent Platform Management Interface. IPMI has additional restart capabilities

    20. System Platform (SP) – Provides Alarming • Alarming thru SAL, Secure Access Link • System Platform (SP) alarms hardware/platform items • SP manages server hardware alarms, forwards SNMP thru SAL • RAID, environmental, fans, power supplies, etc. • Applications (e.g. CM) alarm using SNMP directed thru SAL • Changes for CM 6.0 alarming • CM ‘display alarms’ will not show platform/server alarms • New SysOID for CM 6.0 (1.3.6.1.4.1.6889.1.8.1.58 – avaya-aura-cm) • SAL can forward SNMP • CM can also forward SNMP: SNMP-INADS (for Avaya) or SNMP-FPM to Fault Performance Manager or an NMS

    21. System Platform (SP) – Provides • Evolving with System Platform (SP) 6.0 to utilize SP for platform type functions • Updates, e.g. service packs • Back-up and Restore •  Applying Updates and Service-Packs • System Platform WebConsole to apply Service-Packs for CM, Utility & SP • CM duplicated servers managed manually • Other options and tools • CM CLI still available • CMM uses SMI (Server Management “Web” Interface) • BSM uses upgradeSM • SUM, Software Update Manager, does not manage SP based templates, does manage firmware & CM service-packs

    22. System Platform (SP) – Provides • Back-up and Restore • Use System Platform to back-up and restore SP and applications • SP Console Back-up does not back-up CMM Message Store and database • Other options and tools • CM and CMM has further back-up options thru CM’s SMI (Server Management Interface) • BSM also uses System Manager • No back-ups to Flash cards • SP supports local, SFTP, email • SP does not encrypt back-ups • Can encrypt thru CM SMI (Server Management Interface)

    23. Changes with Communication Manager 6.0 • No support for CNA/CNB • Control Network A, Control Network B no longer supported • Used bonded NICs thru System Platform for redundancy • Use corporate LAN and allow customer network / routes to customize • No support for Fiber Connectivity/Center Stage Switch • No fiber connectivity including Expansion Interfaces, DS1Converter, ATM • We’ll test Center Stage Switch for federal at a later date but only for federal customers! • SES will not be supported with CM R6.0 • It is not needed with Session Manager & the Evolution Server

    24. Changes with Communication Manager 6.0 • SMI, Server Management Interface, changes • Some items eliminated, some just changed • Due to using System Platform, CM changes, offer changes, etc. • Server Configuration & Configure Server • Diagnostics: Temperature/voltage • Modem, Modem Test • Network Time Sync • Server • Raid Status • Configure Time-server • Set Modem Interface • Configure Rmb • Restore Default -- now done by reinstalling the VM • Eject Cd-rom • Server Upgrades • Manage Software • Make Upgrade Permanent • Boot Partition • Update BIOS • Data Backup/restore • Format Compact • Tripwire/tripwire commands -- tripwire is no longer supported • IP phones • tftpboot

    25. CM SMI Pages – Server Role

    26. CM SMI Pages – Network Configuration

    27. Changes with Communication Manager 6.0 • Migrations only – no upgrades from previous CM 5.x • Migrate translations plus certain platform data • CM 5.2.1, 5.2.0 and 5.1.2 - UserLogins, Logs, etc. • Licensing changes – use WebLM • License & authentication files get installed via System Platform • Increased capacities

    28. Boot Time Memory configurations • Boot Time Memory (BTM) and Template Memory Sizes (configurable thru SMI with defaults set) • Match survivable with the main • Migrations from pre-6.0 used a standard or Xlarge memory configuration • If the main was/is a standard, the LSP should be medium survivable. • If the main was/is a xlarge, the LSP should be a large survivable. • If the main was/is an S8300, the LSP should be a small survivable. • CM_Duplex, CM_Simplex, CM_SurvRemote, CM_SurvRemoteEmbed templates default to large • CM_onlyEmbed defaults to small

    29. Changes with Communication Manager 6.0 • Impacts to AIM, Avaya Integrated Management • No AIW, Avaya Installation Wizard • NRW, Network region Wizard, moved to separate standalone download • SUM does manages firmware & CM service-packs, not upgrades/migrations for CM 6.0 • Additional details: Avaya Integrated Management 6.0 Eran Shapiro, Al Garcia • Move items from CM to Utility Services • ESD, Enhanced System Directory • Phone and GW firmware file management including http server. Note TN firmware is not included in the Utility Services

    30. Utility Services • HTTP and HTTPS fileserver for IP phones & Gateway firmware • Scheduling and control of H323 IP phone firmware upgrades • Control of IP phone settings via GUI settings editor • MyPhone (self administration tool for IP phone users) • CDR collection tools • DHCP server • Enterprise System Directory allowing LDAP lookups via IP Phones

    31. System Capacities • There are some key capacity changes in CM 6.0 to align better with the Avaya reference architecture with Session Manager at the core • Better CM SIP trunk capacities • Increased station capacity • Offer capacities are now set by the deployed System Platform template • Similar to platform limits in previous releases, but a bit more hardware independent • Set by “boot time memory” parameters

    32. Capacity Increases • SIP Trunking Expansion • Increased from 7,000 to 24,000 for CM in the Feature Server configuration (“IMS Enabled” set to “y”) • Increased to 12,000 CM in the Evolution Server configuration (“IMS Enabled” set to “n”) • A single CM does not support simultaneous administration of “Feature Server” SIP trunks and “Evolution Server” SIP trunks • Scale • CM now supports up to 18,000 IP endpoints • May be any mix of H.323 or SIP stations • Up to 10,000 agents are supported • SIP performance is also improved by replacing and upgrading certain components of the SIP “stack”
