ALE Application Partner Program Inter-Working Report
2 Validity of the InterWorking Report
This InterWorking report specifies the products and releases which have been certified.

This inter-working report is valid unless specified until the AAPP member issues a new major
release of such product (incorporating new features or functionalities), or until ALE issues a new
major release of such Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise product (incorporating new features or
functionalities), whichever first occurs.

A new release is identified as following:
a “Major Release” is any x. enumerated release. Example Product 1.0 is a major product release.
a “Minor Release” is any x.y enumerated release. Example Product 1.1 is a minor product release

The validity of the InterWorking report can be extended to upper major releases, if for example the
interface didn’t evolve, or to other products of the same family range. Please refer to the “IWR
validity extension” chapter at the beginning of the report.

Note: The InterWorking report becomes automatically obsolete when the mentioned product
releases are end of life.

ALE Application Partner Program Inter-Working Report
3 Limits of the Technical support
For certified AAPP applications, Technical support will be provided within the scope of the features
which have been certified in the InterWorking report. The scope is defined by the InterWorking
report via the tests cases which have been performed, the conditions and the perimeter of the
testing and identified limitations. All those details are documented in the IWR. The Business Partner
must verify an InterWorking Report (see above “Validity of the InterWorking Report) is valid and that
the deployment follows all recommendations and prerequisites described in the InterWorking
Report.

The certification does not verify the functional achievement of the AAPP member’s application as
well as it does not cover load capacity checks, race conditions and generally speaking any real
customer's site conditions.

Any possible issue will require first to be addressed and analyzed by the AAPP member before
being escalated to ALE. Access to technical support by the Business Partner requires a valid ALE
maintenance contract
                                rd
For details on all cases (3 party application certified or not, request outside the scope of this IWR,
etc.), please refer to Appendix F “AAPP Escalation Process”.

3.1 Case of additional Third party applications
In case at a customer site an additional third party application NOT provided by ALE is included in
the solution between the certified Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and AAPP member products such as a
Session Border Controller or a firewall for example, ALE will consider that situation as to that where
no IWR exists. ALE will handle this situation accordingly (for more details, please refer to Appendix
F “AAPP Escalation Process”).

4 Application information

Application commercial name:                     ARA-1

Application version:                             3.0.3

Interface type:                                  SIP / RTP G711 u/GSM

Brief application description:

The new ARA-1, Analog Radio Adaptor, extends the coverage and capability of an existing SIP
private branch exchange (PBX) by allowing the interface of land mobile radios (LMR) to the
system. Comparable to an analog telephone adapter (ATA), which allows a standard telephone
to operate on a session initiation protocol (SIP) network; the ARA-1 provides the same
functionality to a radio. The radio connected via the ARA-1 is assigned a unique extension that
can easily be dialed using any internet protocol (IP) phone, softphone, or other voice
communications device associated with the SIP PBX. Any number of radios, SIP phones, or
other audio devices in the network can be conferenced together by the SIP PBX.
Since SIP is an open standard, a multitude of services are available including call logging, call
recording and call forwarding. A SIP PBX can also enable video conferencing, document
sharing and text messages between compatible devices.
The addition of radio interface capability using the ARA-1 not only brings existing radio
networks into the SIP arena but also allows SIP-based communications to be extended into
areas that are not serviced or cannot be reached using a SIP network. For example, an ARA-1
can be used with an LMR system to extend SIP communications into areas of rugged terrain,
across bodies of water, or into tunnels.

5 Test environment

The ARA-1 acts like a SIP Analog Terminal Adapter, but with functionality designed for interfacing
with professional radio systems (fire, police, military, air...).

In the above scenario, the ARA-1 is communicating with an OmniPCX Enterprise through SIP
Trunk.

The Ara-1 has a physical connection to a walkie talkie which will act as a bridge with the wireless
network.

Tests are made with internal and external calls, using 40x8 series phones.

6 Summary of test results

6.1 Summary of main functions supported
ARA-1 can be called as an extension internally or via a DID externally.
The call is treated like any other SIP call.

6.2 Summary of problems
ARA-1 has a SIP option called “Accept REFER Requests”. We noticed that once turned ON,
transfers had unexpected behaviour. Therefore, this IWR was run with the option “Accept REFER
Requests” turned off, and no transfers cases were tested. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise technical
support will not be able to help you if you chose to turn on this feature. The manufacturer of this
system is aware of the issues encountered.

6.3 Summary of limitations
            Device is not multiline capable. You need one ARA-1 per connection.
            G711 is the only codec supported with OXE.
            This IWR was tested with half-duplex walkie talkie, which means only one party at the
             time could talk

6.4 Notes, remarks
Note that there are two ways to dial with the ARA-1 if the radio has a DTMF keypad:
Dial digits normally: The ARA-1 will see those digits as an internal (to the ARA-1) speed dial
Dial digits normally and end with a #: the ARA-1 will dial the entire radio sequence entered.

The OXE used during the tests is setup in a spatial redundancy mode.
The ARA-1 does not support multiple registration server, therefore, only the FQDN of the OXE is
used.

    3       DHCP IP address registration without authentication                              See note.

    4       DHCP IP address registration with authentication                                 See note.

    5       Support of “423 Interval too brief”

NOTE: During our tests, we noticed that if the password was changed and saved, even though we
requested the ARA-1 to reboot, it did not. We had to manually unplug the power. Also, if
authentication was requested but setup with a wrong password, entering the right password and
saving the configuration did not work. We had to manually power cycle the unit. Therefore, it is
important to make sure that all configuration is setup correctly before registering to the OXE.

8.2 IP / UDP SIP Signaling and DTMF

NOTE:The DTMF is a function of the radio. The radio volume needs to be setup at a sweet spot in
order to accommodate both voice and DTMF

9 Appendix A : AAPP member’s Application
  description

The new ARA-1, Analog Radio Adaptor, extends the coverage and capability of an existing SIP
private branch exchange (PBX) by allowing the interface of land mobile radios (LMR) to the
system. Comparable to an analog telephone adapter (ATA), which allows a standard telephone
to operate on a session initiation protocol (SIP) network; the ARA-1 provides the same
functionality to a radio. The radio connected via the ARA-1 is assigned a unique extension that
can easily be dialed using any internet protocol (IP) phone, softphone, or other voice
communications device associated with the SIP PBX. Any number of radios, SIP phones, or
other audio devices in the network can be conferenced together by the SIP PBX.

13 Appendix E: AAPP program

13.1 Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Program (AAPP)

The Application Partner Program is designed to support companies that develop communication
applications for the enterprise market, based on Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise's product family.
The program provides tools and support for developing, verifying and promoting compliant third-
party applications that complement Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise's product family. ALE facilitates
market access for compliant applications.

The Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Program (AAPP) has two main objectives:

         Provide easy interfacing for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise communication products:
          Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise's communication products for the enterprise market include
          infrastructure elements, platforms and software suites. To ensure easy integration, the
          AAPP provides a full array of standards-based application programming interfaces and
          fully-documented proprietary interfaces. Together, these enable third-party applications to
          benefit fully from the potential of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise products.

         Test and verify a comprehensive range of third-party applications:
          to ensure proper inter-working, ALE tests and verifies selected third-party applications that
          complement its portfolio. Successful candidates, which are labelled Alcatel-Lucent
          Enterprise Compliant Application, come from every area of voice and data communications.

The Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Program covers a wide array of third-party
applications/products designed for voice-centric and data-centric networks in the enterprise market,
including terminals, communication applications, mobility, management, security, etc.

14 Appendix F: AAPP Escalation process

14.1 Introduction

The purpose of this appendix is to define the escalation process to be applied by the ALE Business
Partners when facing a problem with the solution certified in this document.

The principle is that ALE Technical Support will be subject to the existence of a valid InterWorking
Report within the limits defined in the chapter “Limits of the Technical support”.

In case technical support is granted, ALE and the Application Partner, are engaged as following:

     (*) The Application Partner Business Partner can be a Third-Party company or the ALE
     Business Partner itself

14.2 Escalation in case of a valid Inter-Working Report
The InterWorking Report describes the test cases which have been performed, the conditions of the
testing and the observed limitations.

This defines the scope of what has been certified.

If the issue is in the scope of the IWR, both parties, ALE and the Application Partner, are engaged:

Case 1: the responsibility can be established 100% on ALE side.
       In that case, the problem must be escalated by the ALE Business Partner to the ALE
       Support Center using the standard process: open a ticket (eService Request –eSR)

Case 2: the responsibility can be established 100% on Application Partner side.
       In that case, the problem must be escalated directly to the Application Partner by opening a
       ticket through the Partner Hotline. In general, the process to be applied for the Application
       Partner is described in the IWR.

Case 3: the responsibility can not be established.
       In that case the following process applies:

              The Application Partner shall be contacted first by the Business Partner (responsible for
               the application, see figure in previous page) for an analysis of the problem.

              The ALE Business Partner will escalate the problem to the ALE Support Center only if
               the Application Partner has demonstrated with traces a problem on the ALE side or if
               the Application Partner (not the Business Partner) needs the involvement of ALE

         In that case, the ALE Business Partner must provide the reference of the Case Number on
         the Application Partner side. The Application Partner must provide to ALE the results of its
         investigations, traces, etc, related to this Case Number.

         ALE reserves the right to close the case opened on his side if the investigations made on
         the Application Partner side are insufficient or do not exist.

Note: Known problems or remarks mentioned in the IWR will not be taken into account.

For any issue reported by a Business Partner outside the scope of the IWR, ALE offers the “On
Demand Diagnostic” service where ALE will provide 8 hours assistance against payment .

IMPORTANT NOTE 1: The possibility to configure the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise PBX with ACTIS
quotation tool in order to interwork with an external application is not
the guarantee of the availability and the support of the solution. The reference remains the
existence of a valid InterWorking Report.

Please check the availability of the Inter-Working Report on the AAPP (URL:
https://applicationpartner.alcatel-lucent.com) or Enterprise Business Portal (Url: Enterprise Business
Portal) web sites.

IMPORTANT NOTE 2: Involvement of the ALE Business Partner is mandatory, the access to the
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise platform (remote access, login/password) being the Business Partner
responsibility.

14.3 Escalation in all other cases
For non-certified AAPP applications, no valid InterWorking Report is available and the integrator is
expected to troubleshoot the issue. If the ALE Business Partner finds out the reported issue is
maybe due to one of the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solutions, the ALE Business Partner opens a
ticket with ALE Support and shares all trouble shooting information and conclusions that shows a
need for ALE to analyze.

Access to technical support requires a valid ALE maintenance contract and the most recent
maintenance software revision deployed on site. The resolution of those non-AAPP solutions cases
is based on best effort and there is no commitment to fix or enhance the licensed Alcatel-Lucent
Enterprise software.

For information, for non-certified AAPP applications and if the ALE Business Partner is not able to
find out the issues, ALE offers an “On Demand Diagnostic” service where assistance will be
provided for a fee.
