VoIP Test Set
Topic Last Modified: 2009-05-22
The VoIP Test Set for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 supports emulation of a SIP endpoint to test connectivity. Emulation options include the following:
Client emulation. To emulate a Microsoft Office Communicator client, you specify a SIP-enabled user account to register with Office Communications Server. Client emulation can be useful for troubleshooting issues with incoming or outgoing Enterprise Voice calls. For example, an Office Communications Server engineer can use the tool in client emulation mode to quickly change user location profile information and validate that outbound routing is properly configured.
Server emulation. You can use VoIP Test Set to emulate a Mediation Server or a gateway. To emulate a server, you specify the IP address, port number, and other settings of the server to be emulated. Server emulation can be useful during deployment of the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 infrastructure to verify the functionality of components that have already been deployed. For example, you might use the tool to receive and make calls directly from an IP/PSTN gateway to ensure that the gateway is completely functional before you deploy the complete Office Communications Server 2007 R2 infrastructure.
