Day -3 UC Voice Ignite Tour

Sneak peak - because SP1 for Exchange is already released this information is not delivered under NDA. When doing labs on the Voice Ignite Tour we tested and filter packets/decode SIP. The is some nice news about SP1 for Exchange 2007

The Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging service and the UM worker process use multiple Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) service ports to communicate with IP gateways and the Speech Engine service worker process that is created by the Microsoft Exchange Speech Engine service at startup.

The Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging service and the UM worker process use Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) over TCP. By default, the Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging service listens on TCP port 5060 in unsecured mode and TCP port 5061 when Mutual Transport Layer Security (MTLS) is used. Each UM worker process that is created listens on TCP port 5065 and 5066. However, when an IP gateway or IP sends Realtime Transport Protocol (RTP) traffic to the Speech Engine service worker process, the IP gateway or IP PBX will use a valid UDP port that ranges from 1024 through 65535. If wou would like to change this port search for the UMConfig.xml file in the BIN directory of Exchange.

New in Service Pack 1 (SP1)

  • The Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging service will listen on TCP ports 5060 and 5061 at the same time.
  • Each UM worker process that is created listens on port 5065 and 5067 (unsecured) and 5066 and 5068 (secured).
  • Exchange Management Console additions
  • Secure Dial Plan Support
  • Support for inband fax tone detection
  • QoS support using DiffServ
  • Performance improvements
  • Support for Windows Server 2008
  • Support for OCS2007
  • New sort of dailplans (New Dailplan Wizard - VOIP security settings/URI type

End conclusion: The sessions are gettings better and more indepth information. After some labs I had really do some work (150 e-mails within 1 day ahhhh :-). A couple of hours ago I did some side-seeing (Tour le Eiffel, Champes de Lycee or something - my french is not very well :-) And of course looked at some places where only celebs live.

It's "Tour Eiffel" (or "Eiffel Tower") and "Champs Elysées" :)

Cheers from a frenchman.

Here's the frenchman again:

For voice, RTP configuration for port range must be done in the registry, not in an XML file.

For T.38 (fax), this has to be done in the globcfg.xml file throug Min/MaxFAXPort (commented out by default)

Some other options in umrecyclerconfig.xml :)
