    • Survivability ChallengesVoIP Solutions that are MORE THAN JUST TALK 19 November 2011
    • Remote Office SurvivabilityAgenda • Understanding the Challenge • Scenarios • Solutions approaches • End point dual registration in detail • Quick guide • A proposal to Elastix Community 2
    • SurvivabilityThe Challenge Problem Definition. Many organizations deploying IP Telephony solutions are using a similar, very cost effective model where a central telephony server supports many IP/Ethernet-based phones in remote sites. Recognizing the need for reliability, these companies are making their central IP- PBXs highly redundant, often deploying multiple servers for failover. However, what happens if theres an issue on the WAN? Perhaps a circuit fails, or a routing loop occurs. ………… No matter how redundant your telephony server is, if your IP phones cant reach it, they lose dial-tone……………… 3
    • SurvivabilityThe Challenge• Telephony is one of those facts of live that we take for granted (as the fact that we breadth without any conscientious control from ourselves)• You take for granted that a dial tone will come up just picking up a handset, and you will be able to communicate to somebody else just after a few key strokes.• Have you ever thought in what is the difference in impact for any organization when you have a few minutes service interruption on Internet access, or Accounting System Access compared with being a few minutes without phone service?.…………………A “Survival Enabled” VoIP deployment is the one that has included a series of attributes and characteristics on all of the components, in the underlying infrastructure as well as all the distributed components………. 4
    • SurvivabilityThe Challenge There is no such thing as a Survival Gateway, or a Survival Phone or even a Survival PBX….…… there are a series of attributes for all of them to be able to have a Survivable designed solution…Lets then Define:• Online Mode. From the perspective of any SIP device, On Line Mode is when this device has full interaction and connectivity with the central point of arbitrage (IP PBX, UC Server, etc).• Survival Mode. From the same perspective, is when the device loose the “advice/guidance” from the central site and now needs to take decisions by itself on how to process a request. 5
    • SurvivabilityScenarios of resolution PSTN3 known and common PRIMARY REG. SVR approaches: SECONDARY REG. SVR SIPx Server Farm - Learning Outbound Proxy WAN - B2BUA - Dual Registration 6
    • SurvivabilityScenarios of Resolution• Learning Outbound Proxy: PST PRIM N ARY REG. SVR SECOND - A local device in the Remote Location ARY REG. SVR SIPx Server Farm acts as the Outbound Proxy. WA N - It learns: • Who is registered and authenticated where. • How calls are routed and treated - You add: • Default Outbound routes for survival calls • How incoming calls are treated in survival mode 7
    • SurvivabilityScenarios of resolution• Back to Back User Agent PST PRIM N ARY REG. SVR SECONDA - A local entity provides all registration RY REG. SVR SIPx Server Farm and authentication features for local WA N sip devices. - The local entity registers and replicates authentication requests to the central site on behalf of each local device - Local Entity has rules to treat calls when outbound registration is not working 8
    • SurvivabilityScenarios of resolution• Dual or Redundant registrar. PST PRIM N ARY REG. SVR - Each local device has 2 or more registrar SECOND ARY REG. SVR SIPx Server destinations for the same UA. Farm WA N - Each local Device is able to switch to a secondary registrar/proxy when primary is not responding. - Each local device is able to identify when primary registrar is back to normal - One of the local SIP devices is able to provide the secondary server capabilities with basic telephony features 9
    • SurvivabilityDual registrar in details PSTN PRIMARY REG. SVR SECONDARY REG. SVR SIPx Server Farm WAN 10
    • SurvivabilityDual registrar in details SECONDARY REG. SVR (1) PSTN PRIMARY REG. SVR VRRP or similar Redundant Router SECONDARY REG. SVR (2) SIPx Server WAN Farm 11
    • SurvivabilityDual registrar in details PRIMARY REGISTRATION SERVER REPORTED REGISTERED REPORTED NON-REGISTERED SERVICE AVAILABLE PENDING FOR FIRST SIP REQUEST AFTER SYSTEM NORMAL ONLINE STATUS CAME BACK, OR NEXT RETRY (STAGE 1.1) REGISTRATION (STAGE 1.4) SERVICE NON-AVAILABLE TRANSITION AFTER MAIN SITE DOWN AND BEFORE NORMAL SURVIVAL MODE NEXT REGISTRATION OF SIP (STAGE 1.3) DEVICE (STAGE 1.2) 12
    • SurvivabilityDual Registrar – Reduce unstable stagesStage 1.2. Reduce expiration time for registration to a minimum value in the SIP end device. Having the phone (SIP end Device) to force an un-registered state if an invite times out. Use TCP for SIP signaling instead of UDP. That will eliminate the timeouts waiting times.Stage 1.4 . Keep the Registration retry time very short In any INVITE the SIP end device, always try the primary even if it is declared as non-registered, and if succeed, re-register. This is the typical way most of the Phone Vendor implement dual registration (Already tested with Polycom) 13
    • SurvivabilityA Quick Guide for Dual Registrar Approach• Suggested Devices attributes: - Local SIP devices with Dual Registrar/Proxy support. - Extended functionality on local Gateway(s): • Be the Local Call Control for • WAN Access Router • VRRP • Registrar Server • Local PSTN connection 14
    • SurvivabilityA Proposal to Elastix Community• Go beyond Hardware Certification Program - AutoDiscovery - AutoProvisioning• Consider Survivability as a solution attribute design. - Add a remote Location entity - Associate SIP End devices belonging to remotes - Define Survival Mode rules - Push Survival Attributes to the local Call Control Device (Gateway/Router) 15

    • SmartNode VoIP GatewaySurvivability• Voice and Data Survivability - PSTN Fallback - Failover Relay • SmartNode automatically reroutes to the PSTN in the case of a power outage. - SIP Registrar - Dial Backup - IP-Link Redundancy 39
    • SmartNode VoIP GatewaySurvivability• Voice and Data Survivability - PSTN Fallback - Failover Relay - SIP Registrar • SIP clients can register directly with the SmartNode instead of a SIP softswitch. This enables the registered SIP clients to be able to make and receive calls over the PSTN during a network outage. - Dial Backup - IP-Link Redundancy 40
    • SmartNode VoIP GatewaySurvivability• Voice and Data Survivability - PSTN Fallback - Failover Relay - SIP Registrar - Dial Backup • During network and power outages, SmartNode enables dial-up connection to the PSTN for data transfers. - IP-Link Redundancy 41
