Mitel 3300 ICP configuration for Tesira using the VoIP web interface

Biamp’s VoIP-enabled products have the ability to make and receive phone calls over many different Voice-over-IP (VoIP) systems that adheres to the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) standard. This article details the steps required to configure a Mitel 3300 ICP VoIP system to work with Biamp's Tesira VoIP products, using the built-in web interface on the VoIP endpoint.

Please first review the requirements for using the VoIP web interface to configure a Tesira VoIP endpoint.

Mitel configuration

First, we'll focus on setting up the Mitel server.

Media Gateway Confirmation

Confirm that the Mitel server is using a T1/E1 connection or Mitel MBG.If using T1/E1 proceed to SIP Device Capabilities section or if using the Mitel MBG begin by making the following settings:

On the MBG turn off "icpside port rotation"  and from the "Manage Configuration Override" page (from the System Configuration menu), click + to add a new override then fill in these values:

Parameter: enable_rtp_port_rotation_icpside

SIP Device Capabilities

After logging in to the Mitel server and entering the System Administration Tool, the first step is to ensure that there is a SIP Device Capabilities Number that is compatible to the Tesira VoIP endpoint.MitelAudiaSIPDevCap.jpg

  1. In the category tree, select System Properties—>System Feature Settings—>SIP Device Capabilities.
  2. Select an unused SIP Device Capability Number.
  3. Click on the “SDP Options” tab and ensure that “Prevent the Use of IP Address in SDP Messages” is set to “Yes”.  This option is critical to ensure compatibility with a Tesira.
  4. All other options can remain at their default setting.  Take note of the SIP Device Capabilities Number that was used, as it will be needed in a later step.

Add User and Device

Edit section

The next step is to set up a new user profile for the Tesira VoIP endpoint.

  1. In the category tree, select Users and Devices—>User and Device Configuration.
  2. Click the "Add" button and select "Default User and Device".
  3. In the Profile tab, enter a Last Name and First Name for the user under the User Profile section.
  4. Under the Service Profile section, enter the desired extension number in the Number field.
  5. For Device Type, select “Generic SIP Phone”.
  6. For Service Level, select “Full”.
  7. All other fields in the Profile tab can remain at their default values.
  8. Select the Service Details tab.
  9. For SIP Device Capabilities, enter the SIP Device Capability Number that was set up previously (see SIP Device Capabilities, step 4).
  10. Select the Access and Authentication tab.
  11. Enter a PIN code in the “User PIN” and “Confirm User PIN” field.  The PIN code must be a number.
  12. All other fields in the remaining tabs can be left at their default values.
  13. Click the “Save” button to save the configuration.

Enabling Multiple Call Appearances

A single Tesira VoIP interface can support up to 6 simultaneous call appearances on each line.  Not all call appearances can be actively on a call at the same time.  If one call appearance is actively on a call (i.e., not on hold), the rest of the call appearances (up to 5) can have a call on hold.  Or, two call appearances can actively be on a call simultaneously (i.e., a 3-way call), but in this case no other call appearances can have a call on hold.  These restrictions apply independently to each of the two lines on an Tesira VoIP card.

Steps 14-17 are optional.  In order for the Mitel system to support multiple call appearances, a few extra steps are required.  If this feature is not necessary or desired, please skip to the next section.  If the steps on this page are skipped, the Tesira will support one call at a time (per line).

  1. In the category tree, select Users and Devices—>Advanced Configuration—>Multiline Set Keys.
  2. Select your extension under the "Multiline Set Keys" heading.
  3. Under the "Programmable Keys" heading, double-click on button number 2.  Set "Line Type" to "Multicall", set "Button Directory Number" to your extension, and set "Ring Type" to "Ring".
  4. Repeat step 16 for the rest of buttons 3-6.  The screenshot below shows the end result if the maximum number of simultaneous call appearances are configured.


Tesira configuration 

Accessing the VoIP web page

WebPage_Login.pngTo access the VoIP web page, connect a computer to the VoIP network, open a web browser, and enter the IP address of the VoIP port. If successful, a login page will be displayed.

Default username: admin

Default password: admin

If you do not see a login screen, ensure the following:

  • The Tesira device must be running firmware version 3.8 or newer.
  • The Tesira system must be running a configuration file that includes a VoIP block.
  • This Tesira system must have either HTTP or HTTPS access enabled on the VoIP port, as described here.

Network Configuration

  1. IPconfig_Webpage.pngUnder the Network window, set “VLAN” to “Enabled” if your VoIP network uses a tagged VLAN.  If the network uses an untagged VLAN or no VLAN, leave this value as disabled”.  If VLAN is enabled, enter the correct VLAN ID.
  2. Leave “DHCP” set to “Enabled” if the SVC-2 card will obtain an IP address automatically from a DHCP server.  Otherwise, set “DHCP” to “Disabled”, and manually enter an appropriate static IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway for the Tesira VoIP endpoint


For access to the optional advanced network features, click the "Switch to Advanced" button.

To write the settings to the VoIP card click on "Save Changes" and then "Apply Saved Changes". After the changes have been saved, you will be brought back to the login page.

Protocol configuration

Navigate to "Line 1 Setup" on the left side of the browser window

  1. Set the "Proxy Vendor" field to "Mitel".
  2. In the SIP User Name field, enter the extension number used in the Mitel setup (see Add User and Device, step 4).
  3. In the SIP Display Name field, optionally enter a name for the extension for Caller ID purposes.  Note that this name may be overridden by the proxy server, and therefore may not show up as the Caller ID name.
  4. In the “Authentication User Name” field, enter the extension number again.  This field must match the “SIP User Name” field.
  5. In the “Authentication Password” field, enter the PIN code that was used in the Mitel setup (see Add User and Device, step 11).
  6. In the “Proxy Address” field, enter the IP address of the Mitel server.

For more Advanced features click on the "Switch to Advanced" button

  1. If your network prioritizes VoIP traffic using Quality of Service (QoS), select the “Quality of Service” tab and enter the appropriate settings for your network.  Otherwise, skip this step.


Other settings in the Advanced tab can be left to their default values in most cases



  1. If you’re configuring two lines, select “Line 2 Setup” at the left side of the page and repeat steps 4-9
  2. Once the Values are set per the Mitel Gateway set up. commit the changes by clicking "Save Changes"
  3. To apply the changes to the Tesira VoIP interface click "Apply Saved Changes" This will reboot the VoIP interface of the Tesira and the new settings will be applied.
  4. See SVC-2 status messages for a description of the possible status messages and their meanings.
