8.1.1 Migration Guide

This migration guide will help you update your SIP Endpoint SDK 8.1.1 configuration settings for use with SIP Endpoint SDK 8.5.2. SIP Endpoint SDK 8.5.2 is based on Genesys SIP and WebRTC media stacks. It has a different XML structure and different settings from SIP Endpoint SDK for .NET 8.1.1 which was based on CounterPath.

Changes in Configuration File Structure

The table below show a side by side comparison of the SIP Endpoint SDK 8.1.1 and 8.5.2 configuration file XML structures. Notice that 8.5.2 configuration is based on policy settings rather than on environment specifics as in 8.1.1. The XML examples below show detail up to the section level where the actual settings are located.

Changes in Configuration Settings

The table in this section shows how 8.1.1 configuration settings map to 8.5.2 configuration settings.

Dot Notation

For convenience, 8.5.2 configuration settings paths are presented in dot notations. For example:

XML Fragment

<Container name ="Genesys">
      <domain name="policy">
        <section name="endpoint">
          <setting name="sip_port_min" value=""/>

Dot Notation of XML Fragment


Basic Container

The basic container for SIP EndPoint SDK 8.5.2 is as follows:

The first Container ("Basic") holds the basic connectivity details that are required to connect to your SIP Server. This container has at least one connection (Connectivity) element with the following attributes:

<Connectivity user="DN" server="SERVER:PORT" protocol="TRANSPORT"/>

Cp Container

The Cp container has been replaced by the Genesys container. Use the following table to to map Cp container settings to Genesys container settings.

Domain Section Setting 8.5.2 Setting 8.5.2 Valid Values
headset audio_in_agc_enabled Genesys.policy.session.agc_mode Valid Values: 0, 1
If set to 0, AGC (Automatic Gain Control) is disabled; if set to 1, it is enabled. Default: 1. Other values are reserved for future extensions. This configuration is applied at startup, after which time the agc_mode setting can be changed to 1 or 0 from the main sample application.

NOTE: It is not possible to apply different AGC settings for different channels in multi-channel scenarios.

Code Snippet: Starting SIP Endpoint SDK 8.5.2

In order to run a WebRTC instance and take advantage of the ability to choose audio layers, Core or Wave needs to run the WebRTC component using MTA (MultiThreaded Apartment). The following code snippet demonstrates how to run SIP Endpoint SDK 8.5.2:

. . . 
this.providerWebRtcWorker = new Thread(new ThreadStart(RunUpEndpoint));
this.providerWebRtcWorker.Name = "ProviderWebRtcWorker";
. . .
private void RunUpEndpoint() {
// At this point, the actual configuration can be updated and
// the Endpoint can be started.
// The next two lines of code are unnecessary if you are not 
// going to change configuration settings.
// Get updated configuration settings
//confDoc = XDocument.Load("SipEndpoint.config");
// The actual SIP Endpoint Start
. . .
