Xmedius FAX Server to Initiate Switchover to resolve multiple m lines in the re-invite.

Introduction

Following Document explain the Workaround on Xmedius FAX Server to Initiate Switchover to resolve the Outbound fax failure issue caused due to multiple m lines in the re-invite from the Provider.

Outbound faxes fail if you receive multiple m lines from the provider as the CUBE does not understand multiple m lines.

Following document explains the Workaround that can be implemented on Xmedius server to resolve the issue by forcing the Xmedius Server to Initiate Switchover.

 

Components Used

CUBE

Xmedius Server

ITSP Provider

SIP T.38 Fax Protocol

Issue 

When the provider sends an INVITE to the CUBE during voice to fax switch-over, and the SDP contains 2 m lines, the original behavior was to reject the call with SIP 488.

However, this behavior has changed.
If the provider sends an SDP with

 

1. m=audio
2. m=image

The call goes through and works fine.

 

If the provider sends an SDP with

 

1. m=image
2. m=audio

The CUBE doesn't process this correctly, and sends a malformed SDP to the XMedius Server in the INVITE message. Therefore, all calls fail.

 

Bug associated with this issue is CSCue70469
