New In This Release

Avaya Aura 6.2 Feature Pack 4

With the introduction of 21-digit dial plan support and other enhanced features in Avaya Aura 6.2 Feature Pack 4, DevConnect members are encouraged to enhance and update their applications for Session Manager 6.3.8 and other related Avaya Aura product releases. DevConnect Technology Partners are strongly encouraged to resubmit current solutions for formal Compliance Testing.

The Session Manager 6.3.8 Feature Pack release includes the following new features:

  • Security enhancements: NIST Support
    National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cryptographic standards for the United States government are support.
  • Enhanced Session Manager Application Sequencing
    Implicit application sequencing definitions can be applied to SIP users.
  • Inter-gateway Alternate Routing for SIP Endpoints
    Inter-gateway Alternate Routing (IGAR) provides voice connectivity using a public service provider (PSTN) if not enough bandwidth is available on the private network.
  • Limit Number of Concurrent Calls for SIP endpoints
    The Limit Number of Concurrent Calls (LNCC) feature causes a multi-call appearance SIP endpoint to behave as a single line appearance endpoint.

For details of all new the features and enhancements in Session Manager 6.3.8, see Chapter 4 of What's New in Avaya Aura Release 6.2 Feature Pack 4, available under the Downloads - Release Information tab.

Avaya Aura 6.2 Feature Pack 3

The Session Manager 6.3.4 Feature Pack release includes the following new features:

  • Two new CDR file formats are supported:
    • The new CDR flat file format adds new data to the legacy CDR flat file format, notably for user-to-user calls, incomplete calls and Tenant ID.
    • XML format provides enhanced call records and enables existing CDR client applications to easily adopt any future changes in the CDR formats.
    For information about all three CDR file formats, see Avaya Aura Session Manager Call Detail Recording Interface - Issue 1.3.1 and Chapter 7 of the Maintaining and Troubleshooting Avaya Aura Session Manager guide, which are available for download under the Downloads - CDR Interface tab.
  • Enhanced Dial-plan administration.
  • Using the Remote Worker feature, remote users can access the enterprise communication network through the public Internet and without VPN connectivity.
  • Improved user interface to administer and manage SIP Firewall rule sets
  • Flexible footprint for Session Manager on VMware.
  • Pluggable SIP adaptation modules.
  • Using the new Inter Tenant Communication Control (ITCC) feature, customers can share the Avaya Aura infrastructure across multiple user communities to reduce people, capital and operating costs.

Feature Pack Release 6.3.2

The Session Manager 6.3.2 Feature Pack release includes the following new features:

  • SIP Call Loop elimination
    Session Manager now provides administration features to track and terminate call looping instances in the network.
  • Multi-Device Access
    The Multi-Device Access feature enables a SIP user to register multiple endpoints to Session Manager with the same extension. Session Manager forks an incoming call to all the registered SIP devices of a given user simultaneously.
  • Dial Plan Transparency
    Dial Plan Transparency (DPT) is a business continuity feature that preserves the dial plan and reroutes an existing call over the PSTN to connect endpoints during a network outage.
  • SIP sessions count
    Session Manager enables monitoring and reporting of the number of license usages in the system.
  • SNMP MIB
    Administrators can download a zip archive file containing the definitions of Session Manager supported SNMP MIBs, alarm traps, and informs.

Release 6.3

The initial Session Manager 6.3 release includes the following new features:

  • Call Details Recording (CDR) Changes
    Starting in Session Manager Release 6.3, each call detail record is expanded from 108 to 228 characters to accommodate the following new fields:
    • Av-GSID (Avaya-Global-Session-ID)
    • Calling Party IP
    • Called Party IP
    For detailed information, download the CDR Interface guide, Issue 1.2.2, available under the Downloads tab.
  • Geographic redundancy on System Manager
    Session Manager supports the System Manager Geographic Redundancy feature, which provides increased system reliability and robustness by ensuring that enterprise communications and management capabilities are not impacted by the failure of a single System Manager instance or the failure of the network.
  • Session Manager role-based access control
    Role-based access control (RBAC) supports the assignment of capabilities to administrators of Session Manager based on their roles. The following roles can be assigned: Network Administrator, System Administrator and Avaya Services Administrator. Custom roles can be defined for the Routing and Session Manager Administration modules.
  • Deny new service for entity links
    The "Deny new service for entity links" feature prevents entity links from accepting new incoming calls and ensures Session Manager does not route outgoing calls over them.
  • Network parameter change
    When a user changes the IP address of System Manager, Session Manager receives a notification and replaces the new address throughout the database for all instances.
  • Terminal serviceability enhancements
  • Session identifier support
    Session Manager now labels each point-to-point session with a globally unique identifier.

Session Manager Release 6.3 SP4 includes the following new features and enhancements:
