Summary

eZuce is pleased to announce the Beta Release of Uniteme 19.12. 

As a beta release, some of these notes may be revised before the actual release.

Important - For Beta Testers - Uniteme 19.12 is a CentOS 7 only release.

This will be a fairly light update with mostly bug fixes for Uniteme. This is largely because we decided to update FreeSwitch to version 1.10 to be able to add a new enhancement. This adds additional regression testing overhead.

Highlights

uniteme New Features:

  • Read the user's name for voicemail users who have not recorded a name
  • Let's Encrypt Certificate support

uniteme Improvements:

  • Upgrade FreeSwitch to 1.10
  • Bug fixes

Notes

  1. Full Beta Release Notes with installation information are located here: 19.12 Full Beta Release Notes
  2. 19.08 and later are now released on CentOS 7 only. This will require that administrators install CentOS 7 minimal, then install Uniteme with our single line installer and then restore from a previous version backup.
  3. Customers receiving faxes through AudioCodes devices will need to modify their AudioCodes configurations with the following settings changes:

[Voice Engine Params]

CallerIDType = 0

FaxTransportMode = 0

CNGDetectorMode = 0

[SIP Params]

CHANNELSELECTMODE = 0

ISFAXUSED = 0

SIPTRANSPORTTYPE = 0

[ CodersGroup0 ]

CodersGroup0 0 = "g711Ulaw64k", 20, 0, -1, 0;

4. For Let's Encrypt certificates to work properly, the server must have a valid outside DNS name and have port 80 and 443 open to LE's servers.

Who Should Install?

This is a beta release and not recommended for production use.

This release is recommended for all 4.6 and later installations. If you have a patch installed to your system a new patch may be required. Please contact sa@ezuce.com if you think you may have a patch applied as that may be replaced during the update.

eZuce's software products continuously progress through an Agile based development methodology that keeps feature functionality comprehensive and up-to-date in response to evolving market and customer requirements.

New software releases are made at a rate of two to four releases a year. Releases are numbered in the <yy>.<mm>.<uu> format where <yy> and <mm> designate the year and the month, respectively, in which a release is made generally available. Where applicable, <uu> corresponds to an update release relative to a general release on which fixes are made available.

In order to ensure service continuity and stability, customers may keep their production environments unchanged for up to a 6-month period during which release updates or patches are made available. After a release is more than 6-months old, eZuce customers would have to upgrade to the latest generally available release - inclusive of all fixes to date and any new patches.

Questions

If you have questions about updating you can email sa@ezuce.com or if you need assistance with the update please contact your account manager or email sales@ezuce.com.

SIPX-800Add latest Grandstream phones to the list of auto provisioning devicesWe have multipls customers requesting provisioning options to be added for the latest Granstream models

Specifically, the customer has been able to do the following:

Two units in for testing that have worked quite well so far with a Uniteme generated config of a similar model.
GXW4216 - config generated in Uniteme from a GXW4008 phone.
HT802 - config generated in Uniteme from a HandyTone 702 phone.

Here are the current generation of Grandstream gateways. Could they be added to the list of available phone models in Uniteme? I imagine the configuration options can just be copied over from the previous models.
Grandstream HandyTone 801 - 1 FXS
Grandstream HandyTone 802 - 2 FXS
Grandstream HandyTone 812 - 2 FXS
Grandstream HandyTone 814 - 4 FXS
Grandstream HandyTone 818 - 8 FXS
Grandstream GXW4216 - 16 FXS
Grandstream GXW4224 - 24 FXS
Grandstream GXW4232 - 32 FXS
Grandstream GXW4248 - 48 FXS

Copy the HandyTone 702 to the different HandyTone 8 series phones (and account for port differences of each model)
Copy the GXW4008 to the different GXW phones (and account for port differences of each model)

SIPX-809Read back voice mailbox owner nameAn administrator would like to have the voicemail system play back a user's name if the user has not recorded their name for voicemail.

This can be done with mod_flite

Speaking the name

If the user has recorded their name, then that recording will be used when listing the matches. If they have not, the name will be read one letter at a time by default. If you would like the system to read their name as if it were being spoken, the following two files will have to be edited:

[freeswitch_root]/conf/lang/[language]/dir/sounds.xml - Replace the action tag under "directory_result_say_name" with:

<action function="speak-text" data="$1"/>
[freeswitch_root]/conf/lang/[language]/[language].xml - Make sure that your tts engine and voice are correct in the line:

<language name="[language]" say-module="[language]" sound-prefix="$${sounds_dir}/en/us/callie" tts-engine="flite" tts-voice="slt">
If you are using flite, you can find information about it here: mod_flite

language is the two character language abbreviation

freeswitch_root is the root of your Freeswitch installation

SIPX-811Update Audiocodes INI file to handle fax without manual setupAs it turns out, the new Freeswitch in CentOS 7 does not handle fax properly with default Audiocodes setup.

These settings are required via manual setup:

https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/Fax+on+AudioCodes+Mediant

I loaded the INI generated by Uniteme, then saved the updated INI generated by Audiocodes. After, I changed the above settings and diff-ed the two files. These are the settings that were added/changed:

[Voice Engine Params]
CallerIDType = 0
FaxTransportMode = 0
CNGDetectorMode = 0

[SIP Params]
CHANNELSELECTMODE = 0
ISFAXUSED = 0
SIPTRANSPORTTYPE = 0

The FreeSwitch that we are using (1.6) is preventing some new improvements such as reading user names. Upgrading to 1.10 was tested in QA and seems to work without any problems so far.

UC-4768Implement automatic SSL certificate with Let's EncryptThe Admin server and the UnitemeWeb should have an automatic SSL certificate generation so when deploy in an MSP model, there is no manual management of certificate.

There should be a check box on the Certificates page to use Let's Encrypt certificate. This should enable certbot-auto to be enabled and promises changed to make this work.

The method to use should be well described in the Let's Encrypt web side. Otherwise, there are good example to get the mechanism done for Reach3 or Rocketchat for example (https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/paas-deployments/aws/#5-configure-nginx-web-server-with-tlsssl)
