Microsoft Communications Server “14” (CS “14”) offers the ability to connect to Internet telephony service providers (ITSP) using an IP-based SIP trunk. This reduces the cost and complexity of extending an enterprise’s telephony system outside its network borders. Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director (Net-Net SD) Session Border Controllers (SBCs) play an important role in SIP Trunking as they are used by many ITSPs as part of their SIP trunking infrastructure.
This step-by-step deployment guide has been prepared for the IP Telephony Service Provider as a means of ensuring that SIP trunking between CS “14” and Acme Packet SBCs is configured in the optimal manner. This guide can be used to support the SIP trunking reference topologies that are documented by Microsoft and Acme Packet in this TechNet article: Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Support for Acme Packet Session Border Controllers.
This document is intended for telecommunications engineers with the purpose of configuring both the Net-Net SD SBC and the CS “14” Mediation Server. There will be steps that require navigating Microsoft Windows Server as well as the Acme Packet Command Line Interface (ACLI). Understanding the basic concepts of TCP/UDP, IP/Routing, and SIP/RTP are also necessary to complete the configuration and for troubleshooting, if necessary.
