I'm trying to understand how to engineer Unity to work with G.729 in the network. Based on the other posts I've looked it, it appears that unity needs to be running G.711 in order to provide the Unified Messaging capability (so the files can play through E mail.).<br><br>So, my question is, if I put the gateways in a region by themselves that can support G.711 or G.729, put the phones in a G.729 region, the will talk to unity ONLY using G.711, and put unity in a region that will only talk G.711.....will this work and provide full functionality? <br><br>What I'm worried about it what happens if a call hits the phone (G.729), and then gets forwarded to Unity. Will it go to G.711?<br><br>
The codec that Unity is using to communicate with an IP phone or gateway does not dictate which codec the message will be recorded in. These two system functions are isolated processes.
CallManager controls which codec is used between the end points. If the end points dont support the codec that CallManager is trying to use the call will fail. Unity can't influence the CallManager in the decision.
The setrecordformat.exe utility dictates which codec Unity will record the message in. CallManager cant influence Unity in the decision. Keep in mind that Unity can record in GSM too which is a codec that CallManager does not support yet.
If a call comes to Unity from a phone that is using g.729 and Unity is set to record in g.711, Unity will transcode the g.729 voice call to g.711 before recording it and vise versa.

So, can Unity be set to communicate in either codec (G.711 or G.729)? I was under the impression that Unity would only support a single Codec at a time (for communication with another endpoint). How do you set this?
It depends upon how one thinks of "supporting" codecs. Unity's interaction with codecs is going to happen at two disctinct places: 1) incoming audio stream (from the other end point) and 2) message recording (record format) and/or playback (codec of prompt set). Unity can only support one message record format (codec for message recording) at a time. You could set the record format to one codec, make a recording and then change the record format to another codec (after restarting Unity of course) and make another recording. There's going to be recordings in different message formats, but at any given time, you can only record one format. Make sense?
As far as incoming audio streams, Unity can support both g729 and g711 at the same time (as long as the g729 setup has been ran on Unity). In regards to "support" for these incoming audio streams, we'll define that as Unity telling CCM at registration time that it's media capabilites include both g729 and g711.
For record: Depending upon what the record format is set to, if the incoming stream does not match the record format, the stream will be transcoded to match the record format.
For playback: Depending upon what the prompt or message's format, if the incoming stream's format doesn't match, Unity will transcodec the playback stream to match the incoming stream.
Run the sl_g729a_setup.exe application, which is located in the Utilities folder. You may want to first check the Sounds and Multimedia Control Panel to see if it is already installed. Look for Audio Codecs under the Hardware tab. The one you're looking for is Sipro Labs G.729A.
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
