VoIP device type
Description
Administration/Registration Server IP
A server which performs administration/registration operations but does not act as a call server. An example would be a SIP registration server which handles only the SIP REGISTER message and not the INVITE messages. When configured as this type, an IP may be listed as a server for admin calls but not for normal calls.
Control Processor IP
Avaya’s proprietary server for managing call setup and tear down.
Media Processor IP
Avaya’s proprietary server for managing actual voice data.
Non-server IP
An IP which should not be interpreted as a server on any call. This type provides a mechanism to override our normal inference of servers based upon traffic between IPs. In other words, it should generally only be used if we are incorrectly presenting a non-server IP as a server.
Outside IP
Link to PSTN or other outside network.
Server IP
Generic VoIP Server such as Cisco.
