Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features Park and Page • A simplified UI option to Park and UnPark Calls • Extremely popular in retail • Call answered by reception, Parked, Pages “Parts, pickup 101” • A Parts rep goes to any phone, dials 101 to UnPark the call • Option presented to user to make a Page immediately after they have Parked the call • An occupied Park label becomes part of system dialing plan • E.g. User simply dials 101 from a Call Appearance button to UnPark the call • No need for UnPark buttons, short codes or feature codes to UnPark • Can still use traditional UnPark buttons or short codes if required • Central Park slots are created from admin defined range in Manager

  27. Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features Park across SCN • All nodes distribute information about their Parked calls across the SCN (to other 9.0+ nodes). Every node stores Park information for every other node • SCN-wide Park slot conflict avoidance • Cannot Park a call in Park slot 101 on Node B if that slot was already in use • No admin required. Optionally combine with Central Park Range on 1 or more/all nodes • Perform direct dial of UnPark across SCN User Parks call in slot 101 SCN Trunk Node B Node A Node A distributes Park info to SCN

  28. Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features Location configuration for Systems, Phones and IP Lines • The Location page allows you to define a physical location and associate a network address with that location. • Locations can then be allocated to extensions. Linking an extension to a location enables the physical location of a phone to be identified when an emergency call is made. • The Location record is also used for setting the Call Admission Control limits.

  29. Location configuration (continued) The location field of IP Phones default to Automatic. Phones registering from a subnet matching that of a Location will be treated as within that Location, otherwise are assumed to be in the same Location as the System.

  30. Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features Emergency Services Access (ESA) • Emergency Services Access (ESA) is a new feature replacing the legacy E911 feature to handle the routing and notification of emergency calls • Each Location record contains one ESA setting: • Emergency ARS: Set to None, or references the ARS record that will be used to route calls from extensions or lines that match this location • Dial Emergency Call Routing: • On matching a Dial Emergency short code the system will try to find the best matching Location which contains an ARS in order to determine which line to use. • Either Location exactly matching Extension’s location, or the system Location. • If neither Locations resolve an ARS record then the fall-back is the line group ID of the Dial Emergency Short Code • Generates a new system event: Emergency Call Alarm indicating success/failure of call, Location, extension etc. • NOTE: Existing E911 configuration will be lost on upgrade.

  31. Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features Call Admission Control (CAC) • For clusters of IP phones which are registered on an IP Office system but physically located elsewhere there is an issue of bandwidth management • Call Admission Control (CAC) is a way of controlling the maximum number of concurrent calls to/from a defined Location • Each location record contains three CAC settings: • Internal Maximum Calls: Calls that pass from the Location to another configured Location (on-net) • External Maximum Calls: Calls that pass from the Location to an unmanaged location (off-net / Cloud) • Total Maximum Calls: The total on-net and off-net calls permitted

  32. Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features 96x1 Release 6.3 (H323) Enhancements IP Office Release 9.0 packages the 96x1 H323 Release 6.3 Phone Firmware.
