Configuring OpenScape Voice

This page provides an overview of the main steps that are required to configure OpenScape Voice. Complete all steps in the order in which they are listed.

  1. Check that OpenScape Voice is working
  2. Configure Numbering Plans
  3. Configure the Endpoint Profile
  4. Configure the Endpoint
  5. Configure Gateway Destinations
  6. Configure Prefix Access Codes
  7. Configure Destination Codes
  8. Configure Agent Destinations
  9. Configure Agent Access and Destination Codes
  10. (Optional) Configure Click-to-Answer
  11. (Optional) Configure emergency call routing

1. Check Minimum Functionality in OpenScape Voice

The procedures in this topic assume that OpenScape Voice is functional and routing calls appropriately. There should already be at least one Numbering Plan that has gateways and nonagent subscribers in it. For more information, see Siemens OpenScape Voice-specific documentation.

2. Configuring Numbering Plans

The instructions in this topic assume that OpenScape Voice is functional and routing calls appropriately. There should already be at least one Numbering Plan with configured gateways and nonagent subscribers.

Purpose: To create the Numbering Plans that will contain the Agents and SIP Server.

Start

  1. Log in to the HiPath Assistant, and navigate to the Business Group of the contact center that you want to configure--for example, GenesysLab.
    Selecting the Business Group
  2. Click Private Numbering Plans.
    Selecting Private Numbering Plans
  3. In the Private Numbering Plans dialog box, click Add.
  4. Add two new Private Numbering Plans: one for your agents and one for SIP Server itself--for example, Agents and SIPServer, respectively.
    Creating Private Numbering Plans

    When you are finished, the dialog box shown in the following figure appears.

    Private Numbering Plans

5. Configuring SIP Server Destinations for Gateways

Purpose: To create Gateway Destinations for SIP Server to route calls. The Endpoints of such Gateway Destinations must already be configured in OpenScape Voice. SIP Server routes calls to Gateways and to phones. Because calls to the phones are routed via the E.164 Numbering Plan, no Destinations have to be configured for them.

Start

  1. Click Private Numbering Plan, and then click the SIP Server Numbering Plan—for example, SIPServer.
  2. Click Destinations and Routes, then Destinations, and then click Add.
  3. Selecting Destinations

  8. When the confirmation message box appears, informing you that the Route was added successfully, click Close.

End

9. Configuring Agent Prefix Access Codes and Destination Codes

In this section, you configure dialing patterns for the Agents. Every number that the agent dials must be configured. If an agent dials a four-digit extension, the Prefix Access Code should be configured to convert the dialed-digit string to the full E.164 code that OpenScape Voice expects. If the agent dials a number that must to be routed to an external gateway, make sure that the dialed-digit string is correct for that gateway before it reaches SIP Server.

As mentioned earlier, all calls must go to SIP Server first; otherwise, the calls will not be visible to SIP Server. In the Private Numbering Plan for agents, every Prefix Access Code must route the call to a Destination Code that points the call to SIP Server. It is best to copy the nonagent Prefix Access Codes from the General Numbering Plan; however, make sure that the destination is always SIP Server.

Start

  1. Click Private Numbering Plan, and then click the Agent Numbering Plan—for example, Agents.
  2. Click Translation, click Prefix Access Codes, and then click Add.
  3. In the Prefix Access Code dialog box, do the following:
    1. In the Prefix Access Code text box, enter the digits you that want to use for routing, and any modifications that OpenScape Voice will need to make in order to route the call properly.
    2. Set the Prefix Type text box to Off-net Access.
    3. Set the Nature of Address text box to Unknown.
    4. Set the Destination Type text box to None.
    5. Click Save, and close the dialog box.
    6. Configuring a Prefix Access Code for the Agent Numbering Plan
    7. In the Prefix Access Code dialog box, click the Prefix Access Code that you just created, and then click the Destination Codes tab.

    3. Make sure that the Destination Type text box is set to Destination.
    4. Set the Destination Name text box to the Destination that you created for SIP Server in Configuring an Agent Destination for SIP Server—for example, SIPServer--by clicking the browse (...) button.
    5. When you are finished, click Save.
    Configuring a Destination Code for the Agent Destination
  5. When the confirmation message box appears, informing you that the Destination Code was created successfully, click Close.
  6. Repeat Steps 2-6 to create other Prefix Access Codes and Destination Codes, as necessary.

End

10. (Optional) Configure Click-to-Answer

This configuration is not required for the integration to work, however, some might be required by local laws, or make the solution easier to configure.

Purpose: The Click-to-Answer feature enables agents to click within Genesys Agent Desktop to answer the phone. The Click-to-Answer feature requires the referenced Patchset on OpenScape Voice and a device that supports it. The current procedure provides instructions for OpenStage phones.

Start

  1. On the phone that you have to configure, select Configuration.
    Selecting Configuration on the OpenStage Phone
  2. Click Incoming calls, and then click CTI calls.
    Configuring CTI Calls on the OpenStage Phone

  4. Repeat Steps 1-3 for every agent phone on the switch.

End

11. (Optional) Configure emergency call routing

This configuration is not required for the integration to work, however, some might be required by local laws, or make the solution easier to configure.

The emergency call routing feature provides alternate call routing in cases in which SIP Server is unavailable, if your local emergency (or 911) laws require some form of alternate routing for agents.

During the first 30 seconds after the emergency calling support is activated, calls will fail to route. After that, OpenScape Voice will route calls via the alternate route that you configure and the calls will work.
