7 About This Guide 7 This document describes the QFlex esbc, which has been added to the QUANTiX product portfolio to further enhance the QUANTiX SBC - QFlex SIP Trunking Solutions. QFlex is a software-only product. Applies To QFlex resides in an enterprise premise and is sit between an IP PBX and the SIP trunking service provider. It is appropriate for small and medium-sized businesses or branch offices of mid to large-sized enterprises that require anywhere from 1 to 1000 concurrent SIP sessions. Prerequisites This document assumes that readers have common network and telecommunications knowledge is required to understand the concepts in this document. What s in This Guide? Content in this guide consists of the following sections: Introduction Capabilities Managing QFlex Licensing Reference Hardware Recommendations
9 Introduction 9 The interface between the Service Provider Network and Private Branch Exchange (PBX) was traditionally a Primary Rate Interface (PRI). With the advancement of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) has become the dominant signaling interface. Businesses and enterprises of all sizes - including small offices, government organizations, universities, and contact centers - are migrating to IP-enabled PBXs and replacing PRI connections with SIP trunks. SIP trunking and Unified Communications adoption is steadily growing, creating security and interoperability challenges between the service provider s network and the enterprise s network. What is QFlex? QFlex is a software-based enterprise Session Border Controller (esbc). Being software-based, QFlex may be deployed on COTS third-party servers. GENBAND supports a pooled license model, allowing sharing of session capacity across multiple QFlex instances; scaling ranges from 1 to 1000 simultaneous sessions. QFlex dimensioning scale is purely a function of the underlying server hardware. This flexibility allows you to allocate and manage the esbc session capacity based on market demand, rather than overspending on licenses that traditional appliance-based models may require. QFlex addresses interoperability challenges that service providers encounter when they deploy their SIP Trunk service to a variety of IP PBX systems. Signaling and media is directed to QFlex from the IP PBX. Currently, QFlex does not support signaling only. QFlex can: Act as a demarcation point between the SIP Trunk service provider network and the enterprise network of a small to medium business providing interoperability with a wide variety of IP PBXs and other network elements. Serve as an esbc and provide Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA) capabilities at the enterprise network edge along with security, topology hiding, SIP ALG, NAT/PAT translation, IP PBX interoperability DOS/DDOS protection, and DTMF relay and interworking (RFC2833, SIP INFO, and inband). It anchors signaling and RTP. QFlex is complemented by a web-based centralized Element Management System (EMS) designed to simplify the deployment and management of large number of QFlex esbcs. The EMS provides the following key capabilities: management of shared license pools across multiple QFlex, template driven provisioning, remote software upgrade/install, provisioning checks, IP PBX profile updates, and test and diagnostic capabilities. Every QFlex deployment, regardless of the number of systems deployed, must include an EMS.
10 The following figure shows the QFlex esbc in its simplest configuration: 10 In the SMB (Small and Medium-sized businesses) environment, where cost is a critical consideration in the deployment of SIP trunking services, typically HA is not required; therefore active/standby box level redundancy is not supported by QFlex. Why Would a Service Provider Need QFlex? Service providers delivering SIP Trunking service to SMBs and enterprises are challenged to assure interoperability across IP PBX types and between revisions of software on the same IP PBX. Maintaining interoperability with ever changing IP PBX software releases is costly and time consuming. Maintaining an IOT lab (with all the different supported IP PBX versions) is a significant cost to delivering SIP trunking services. QFlex s IP PBX interoperability approach solves these challenges for service providers by enabling service providers to deploy an enterprise IP PBX specific profile towards the LAN and have a SIP Trunk specific profile on the WAN interface. QFlex supports a wide range of IP PBX vendors and release version profiles (over 60 different vendor and respective release versions with new profiles always being added). QFlex lets service providers reduce the time to market by cutting interoperability time from months to weeks or days and offer SIP Trunk services to a broader market. This interoperability approach also helps service providers and enterprises use supplementary services such as call forwarding, transfer, and music on hold in a multi-vendor IP PBX environment, across different branch offices. In addition, there is a trend in the SIP Trunk and hosted UC service providers community to deploy an esbc on an enterprise/ SMB premise as a demarcation device, which service
11 providers use to define a demarcation for the Quality of Service (QoS) they deliver to enterprises. Why Would an Enterprise Need QFlex? As enterprises transition from PRI to SIP Trunks, they must participate in securing their IP network, rather than relying on a service provider alone to secure their SIP network. For enterprises and businesses with multi-vendor PBX environments, QFlex s unique interoperability approach lets you use all call control features across branch offices: DID DOD Call Forward Always Call Forward No Answer Call Forward Busy Caller ID Call Park Call Pickup Call Hold Music On-Hold Call Waiting Three-Party Call Call Transfer Calling Name QFlex as Part of GENBAND s SMART EDGE SIP Trunking Solution Enterprises are increasingly replacing legacy PBX with IP PBX equipment, yet the IP PBX is often tethered to a TDM network, limiting features like common dial plans, integrated messaging, and inter-branch feature transparency. SIP Trunking provides a secure method of interconnecting via IP between the operator and the enterprise, but many vendors only support the border control or applications segments of the solution. GENBAND s SMART EDGE SIP Trunking Solution provides a full-service suite of security features and applications that enables operators to take full advantage of this dynamically-growing market opportunity. QFlex is an optional element of the following SMART EDGE SIP Trunking solutions: QFlex, QUANTiX SBC, and a third-party application server (for example, Broadworks) or a GENBAND PSTN Gateway In this solution, QFlex is configured as a static SIP PBX on the QUANTiX that is, QFlex will not send a SIP REGISTER as there is no SIP registrar in this solution. The following figure shows the QFlex as part of this trunking solution: 11 2 February 2014 QUANTiX QFlex Product Description Copyright 2013 GENBAND. All Rights Reserved.
12 12 QFlex and QUANTiX SBC and EXPERiUS Application Server In this solution, QFlex is configured to act like a dynamic SIP PBX to make the addition of a new IP PBX to the service provider s network as seamless as possible, sending a SIP REGISTER to the EXPERiUS. This eliminates the need to perform QUANTiX SBC provisioning for each new IP PBX. The following figure shows the QFlex as part of this trunking solution: For more information about GENBAND s SMART EDGE SIP Trunking Solutions, contact your GENBAND sales representative.

15 QFlex Capabilities 15 This section provides a general overview of the key capabilities of QFlex. Security Service provider SIP Trunking connectivity to enterprise customers is in a protected network. QFlex is equipped to handle the following typical security threats: exposed enterprise environment, malformed signaling, SIP implementation flaws, signaling and media floods, and toll fraud. QFlex provides the following security provisions: B2BUA with full state machine implementation on both sides Topology hiding NAT/ PAT Traversal DoS/ DDoS Protection Rogue RTP Detection TLS encryption/decryption SIP privacy management (RFC 3325 and Calling Name Override) Toll fraud prevention (WAN-side pilot numbers/surrogate registration) RTP and RTCP packet anchoring Random RTP/RTCP port selection for security Interworking QFlex provides the following interworking capabilities: IP PBX Interoperability QFlex has a profile-based interoperability approach; a profile provides what is needed to interoperate with an IP PBX installation. QFlex has profiles for many major and lesser known IP PBX vendors. The profile methodology addresses the multiple PBX versions a vendor offers as well as multiple active versions of each vendor PBX. Profiles address signaling message errors (timing, sequence, and content), provide quick and easy configuration, and address DoS threats that result from implementation flaws and application-level vulnerabilities. The profiles resolve some of the following differences between IP PBX systems: static to dynamic PBX registration and privacy and calling name normalization. Every IP PBX, SBC, or SIP server supported is represented by a profile; a profile implementation involves a full state machine adherence. As a B2BUA, a QFlex trunk activates a profile on the LAN and WAN side.

Message flow may also be altered; for example, when one side uses PRACK and the other does not, re-invites are absorbed, REGISTER handling (for example, surrogate registration for Broadsoft and QUANTiX), silent consumption of unknown/unsupported headers or messages, and DTMF conversion. Session Control QFlex has the following session control capabilities: Trunk specific call treatment policies Call Admission Control QFlex enforces the following CAC methods: total number of calls (measurement based) and resource-based CAC. SNMP alerts (threshold crossing alerts) are reported on the CAC limit. CAC limits obey emergency number prioritization rules. Emergency call prioritization allowing calls irrespective of QoS or licensed limits Type of Service (ToS) settings to every trunk that allows traffic prioritization Quality of Service (QoS) statistics (jitter, latency, packet loss) to maintain service and quality traffic prioritization Load balancing of traffic on both LAN and WAN sides, which allows several default gateways to be provisioned to balance traffic across a number of LAN/WAN routes to the core SBC. Digit manipulation Optionally strips digits from or prepends digits to the beginning of the called party number prior to its termination or will keep only the last number of digits specified in the number. Digit manipulations can be assigned to each of the application interfaces (WAN or LAN) to the received SIP messages. If the same digit manipulations are required for multiple PBXs in an enterprise with the same profile, then they can be homed to the same LAN interface. If different manipulations are required for the PBXs in the enterprise, then they will have their own LAN and WAN application interfaces. Note: If you would you like to 17 2 February 2014 QUANTiX QFlex Product Description Copyright 2013 GENBAND. All Rights Reserved.
18 load share within PBXs in an enterprise, then they would need to be homed on the same LAN interface. Globalized Numbering Converts received called and calling telephone number formats to either E.164, NANP, or leaves them unmodified SIP error code manipulation SIP OPTIONS Originate and respond to SIP OPTIONS as a keep alive mechanism RTCP Assist Generates standard RTCP keep alive reports to ensure the liveliness of a media session during prolonged periods of silence, such as call hold, for PBX implementations that require it. Drop RTCP Packets Drops RTCP packets received on ingress in scenarios where RTCP should not be sent or received. 18
19 Managing QFlex 19 QFlex deployments are managed using a web- based centralized Element Management System (EMS) solution, designed to rapidly deploy and manage large numbers of QFlex servers and simplify QFlex configuration. The EMS may automatically be notified when QFlex servers start up for the first time. When this occurs, some basic configuration is performed. The same notification may be used by the service provider s automated provisioning system to complete the configuration using its Web Services API, which provides all the provisioning actions to create, modify, and remove QFlex in a given deployment. Additionally, it provides a centralized QFlex configuration repository, license management, key administration functions, reporting, statistics, diagnostic tools, and remote software upgrades and installations and provisioning checks. Service providers can manage hundreds of QFlex instances using EMS. When QFlex is deployed by a SIP Trunking service provider, the EMS resides within the service provider s administrative domain. Only the SIP Trunking service provider interacts directly with the EMS the end customers of the SIP Trunking service do not log into the EMS or into QFlex. The following figure is an example of how the EMS can be deployed.
20 Getting Started QFlex is software only product; thus, service providers must procure their own hardware. See Hardware Recommendations for details. After acquiring the hardware, the software packages are installed and configured. Initial Provisioning The provisioning and configuration model for QFlex requires only a small number of steps. For service providers wanting to automate the process, after the software is installed and configured initially (for example, by running the qflexinit script), and the server reboots, an SNMP trap is sent to the configured destination that has been configured by the qflexinit script. The SNMP trap can then be used by the service provider to trigger automated EMS provisioning through the Web Services API and/or may be forwarded to the EMS. When the EMS receives this trap, it can trigger some amount of automated provisioning of QFlex. Daily Operations You can use the EMS to monitor the performance of the deployed QFlex servers and, if needed, perform diagnostic tests, troubleshooting. Troubleshooting Tools This section describes the following troubleshooting tools of the EMS: Server Status Application and Server Statistics Test Calls Diagnostics Server Status You can display the status of all QFlex servers showing the operational status of the server (online, offline or unknown), the software version installed on the server, its RTP relay status (online or N/A), next hops (OOS or ISV) status, and the number of sessions (also known as call paths or licenses) allocated to QFlex. You can also display servers by IP address, name, time zone, customer name, and some custom fields. Application and Server Statistics The following application statistics can be displayed by the EMS for QFlex: Call Stats RTP Relay Threads Application Interfaces 20
21 Next Hops Process SIP Stack Server statistics are collected every 24 hours to collect the previous day s statistics. You can display the following system-level statistics for each configured QFlex using the EMS: Load Statistics CPU Statistics CPU Statistics (per processor) Memory Statistics IO and Transfer rate Statistics Paging Statistics Process Creation Statistics Block Device Activity Statistics Interrupt Statistics Network Device Statistics Network Device Failure Statistics NFS Client Statistics NFS Server Statistics Used Socked Statistics Physical Memory Statistics Kernel Table Statistics System Switch Statistics Swapping Statistics 21 Test Calls The EMS can facilitate the following kinds of test calls: LAN and WAN side loopback test calls You can set up a loopback for a call that has a specific calling (or called) number. Instead of processing the call normally, the call is looped back. You can do this either on the LAN side or on the WAN side. For example, a call originating from the LAN side PBX is answered by QFlex (the RTP is echoed back). QFlex determines that a call is a loopback call based on the Calling Number (for LAN loopback) and Calling or Called Number (for WAN loopback). Forward test calls A forward test call lets you verify that all customer numbers are ported and operational but only on the WAN side. Forward test calls comprise a trigger 2 February 2014 QUANTiX QFlex Product Description Copyright 2013 GENBAND. All Rights Reserved.
22 number and a forward number. The trigger number calls B. At the QFlex (based on the trigger number), the call is looped to C (the forward number) with the calling number appearing as B as shown in the following figure: 22 Diagnostics This section describes the diagnostics features of the EMS. Tools QFlex provides the following diagnostic tools: Ping You can make a standard ICMP echo request over any of the interfaces to a target destination (IP address or FQDN). SIP OPTIONS You can send a SIP OPTIONS message over to a destination IP address and port target and have the option to select the transport (TCP or UDP) and the source port. Interface and statistics status You can view in real-time, for a given QFlex, the logical interface and statistics status. Display installed packages Displays the packages installed on QFlex. Get hostname Displays the hostname of the QFlex server. Linux services status Displays the status of the Linux services running on QFlex. Pilot Number Registration Status QFlex can perform pilot number(s) registration for Broadsoft Access Server which will register all the phones on the Local Area Network.
23 Call Tracing 23 When call tracing is enabled, QFlex will attempt to match each incoming call against a list of call filter criteria. Call traces are stored on the EMS and can be viewed using the EMS. The EMS provides the following ways to trace calls on a QFlex server: Active Calls Capture Wireshark pcap (packet capture) files. These files are loaded into Wireshark (Ethereal) for display. Capture call information (based on a filter), CDR information, the signaling messages involved in the call, and call quality of service (QoS) detail records. The detail records, include features invoked, call duration, calling/called data, and so on and reports. It provides raw quality statistics like jitter, latency, and dropped packet counts. You can filter calls on SIP Request URI, SIP From Header, and SIP To Header. You can view in real time (updated every 5 seconds) the active calls being processed by QFlex. Packet Capture QFlex can capture IP packets received on any of its active Ethernet interfaces by running the tshark packet capture program (in promiscuous mode) and gather the captured packets into a specified file for upload. You can limit the capture based on the number of packets, time, or on the size of the output file (that is, the capture stops when the file reaches a specified number of KB). Once the packet capture is completed, you can upload it from the server and store it on your local computer. You can use a packet analyzing tool (for example, Wireshark) to view the details of the packets. Log Files Both QFlex and the EMS generate log files. QFlex generates the following log files: General Contains all the non-specific log information. Message Contains the external VoIP messages which are received and transmitted by QFlex. Alarm Contains the conditions which have generated an SNMP trap when an alarm occurs. Refer to Appendix A in the QUANTiX QFlex Administration Guide for a description of the alarms. Initialization Contains the same information as the General log file from the time the QFlex process starts until it considers its initialization complete, allowing you to view the initial log file contents which are normally overwritten after a certain period of time/activity. This is the only log file that does not have a limited size. Process Monitor Contains information about the QFlex process status from a size perspective, allow you to determine if the QFlex process is leaking memory. It contains 2 February 2014 QUANTiX QFlex Product Description Copyright 2013 GENBAND. All Rights Reserved.
24 one line each minute QFlex is running and uses the same format as the General log file (using a special forced log level. CDR Transfer Contains information about the transfer of CDRs from QFlex server to remote host. 24 EMS Database Audit You can display the database audit logs. Each database statement that modifies data is logged. EMS Database Purge You can delete data from the EMS database based on a start date, end date, start time, and end time. Server Ticket Info When there is a need to log a QFlex issue with GENBAND, use this to create a tar file containing all the log files and confirmation information that will be needed by support to investigate the issue. MIBs QFlex supports the following standard MIBS: UCD-DISKIO-MIB SNMP-VIEW-BASED-ACM-MIB UDP-MIB SNMP-USER-BASED-SM-MIB SMUX-MIB NOTIFICATION-LOG-MIB IPV6-TCP-MIB TCP-MIB UCD-DLMOD-MIB SNMPv2-MIB IANA-LANGUAGE-MIB SNMP-PROXY-MIB IP-FORWARD-MIB INET-ADDRESS-MIB IANAifType-MIB SNMP-FRAMEWORK-MIB AGENTX-MIB IPV6-MIB NET-SNMP-AGENT-MIB DISMAN-EVENT-MIB IP-MIB SNMP-COMMUNITY-MIB RFC1213-MIB SCTP-MIB HOST-RESOURCES-MIB TRANSPORT-ADDRESS-MIB NET-SNMP-MIB SNMP-TARGET-MIB IF-MIB EtherLike-MIB IPV6-UDP-MIB IANA-ADDRESS-FAMILY- NUMBERS-MIB RMON-MIB SNMP-NOTIFICATION-MIB NETWORK-SERVICES-MIB MTA-MIB NET-SNMP-EXTEND-MIB SNMP-MPD-MIB UCD-IPFWACC-MIB UCD-DEMO-MIB SNMP-USM-AES-MIB SNMP-USM-DH-OBJECTS-MIB DISMAN-SCRIPT-MIB IPV6-ICMP-MIB NET-SNMP-EXAMPLES-MIB IF-INVERTED-STACK-MIB LM-SENSORS-MIB
25 An application-specific MIB is used as part of the QFlex management model. For a list of application-specific MIBS, see Appendix B, QFlex SNMP MIB in the QFlex Administration Guide. You can walk through the MIBs using common network management tools February 2014 QUANTiX QFlex Product Description Copyright 2013 GENBAND. All Rights Reserved.
27 Licensing 27 The licensing regimen on QFlex is lightweight; the EMS manages and deploys licenses, number of simultaneous sessions Right to Use(RTU), to the QFlex servers. There are no additional licenses required to operate QFlex. QFlex EMS plays a critical role in the management and distribution of license files across QFlex instances.
29 Reference Hardware Recommendations QFlex is a software only product and requires that service providers, distributors, and resellers provide their own hardware.
