SIP IP Phone Models 9143i, 9480i, 9480i CT, and 67xxi Series Phones Release Note 2.5.3

Before you Upgrade

Please Read Before Upgrading Your Phone

If you have a firmware version on your phone prior to 2.3, please read the following IMPORTANT 
information before upgrading the phones:

LLDP is enabled by default.

 

If LLDP is enabled on your network, the phones may come up with different network settings. 
For more information about LLDP, see the 

Aastra SIP IP Phone Administrator Guide

.

Support for DHCP Options 159 and 160.

If the DHCP server supplies Options 159 and 160, the phones will attempt to contact the 
configuration server given in these options. For more information about Options 159 and 160, 
see the 

Aastra SIP IP Phone Administrator Guide

.

HTTPS validation.

If you are using HTTPS and the certificates are not valid or are not signed by Verisign, 
Thawte, or GeoTrust, the phones fail to download configuration files. For more information 
about HTTPS validation, see the 

Aastra SIP IP Phone Administrator Guide

.

Watchdog task feature.

If the phone detects a failure (for example, a crash), the phone automatically reboots. For more 
information about the Watchdog feature, see the 

Aastra SIP IP Phone Administrator Guide

.

Note: 

If you factory default a phone with Release 2.3 and above 

software, when the phone reboots, it attempts to connect to

 

rcs.aastra.com

. There is no personal information transmitted from the 

phone and the phone continues to boot up as normal.

RN-001029-04, Release 2.5.3, Rev 05 

IP Phone Release Notes 2.5.3

New Features in Release 2.5.3

This section provides the new features in SIP IP Phone Release 2.5.3. These new features apply 
to all of the Aastra IP Phones, unless specifically stated otherwise. Each feature also specifies 
whether it affects the Administrator, the User, or both.

New Parameter for Configurable Contact Header Matching

When sending SIP packets, the IP Phones observe the Contact header by matching the username, 
domain name, port, and transport per SIP RFC 3261.This is called “strict SIP Contact header 
matching.” However, in specific networks (such as behind some SOHO routers), the phone 
registers with its private address in the Contact, but when the response is sent back, the router 
maintains the public side IP address in the Contact header. This causes a non-matching Contact 
header and the phone does not accept the new registration expiry timer.

A new parameter, “

sip contact matching

”, now allows the Administrator to specify the method 

used by the phone to match the Contact Header. This parameter is available via the configuration 
files only.

SIP IP Phone Models 9143i, 9480i, 9480i CT, and 67xxi Series Phones Release Note 2.5.3

Issues Resolved in Release 2.5.3

This section describes the issues resolved on the IP Phones in Release 2.5.3. The following table 
provides the issue number and a brief description of each fix.

Release 2.5.3

Note: 

Unless specifically indicated, these resolved issues apply to all 

phone models

.

Issue Number

Description of Fix

SIP

CLN19852 

The phone was randomly freezing during calls and in the idle state. After a re-subscribe only a 
NOTIFY was sent to the phone - not an OK response. This NOTIFY worked fine but the next NOTIFY 
that was sent caused a freeze on the phone.

This is now corrected.

DEF17372 

When using RTP Control Protocol Extended Report (RTCP-XR) in a network, the Network Packet 
Loss Rate (NLR), Burst/Gap densities & durations were reported incorrectly.

This is now corrected.

DEF17514 

The IP Phones set the VLAN ID according to the Type-Length-Values (TLV) when receiving a civic 
location TLV alone. When ELIN is enabled (an additional location TLV with ELIN info), the phone 
cannot set the VLAN ID according to the network-policy.

This issue has been corrected.

DEF18682 

A REINVITE from G.722 to G.711 codecs resulted in the “Hi-Q” icon staying on the phone’s screen.

This has now been corrected and the “Hi-Q” icon now correctly goes away.

DEF18707 

A REINVITE from G.711 to G.722 codes does not display the Hi-Q icon on the Phone UI.

This has been corrected and the HI-Q icon now displays as expected.

DEF19258 

When the IP Phone uses persistent Transport Layer Security (TLS) with an intermediate certificate 
that has been signed by the root Certificate Authority (CA), the intermediate CA then issues the 
server certificate. However, a TLS session cannot be established. After the TLS Handshake, the 
phone sends a Transmission Control Protocol Finished (TCP FIN). 

This is now corrected. The phone now registers and connects with any Common Name (CN) used for 
the proxy and registrar server name.

DEF19416 

If TLS is used on the phone, it uses the SIPS URI scheme for all requests such as REGISTER, 
INVITE, and SUBSCRIBE. However, REFERs are sent using SIP URI scheme. As a result, a call 
transfer may not work properly when using TLS. 

This is now corrected. A SIP REFER is now correctly sent using SIPS URI scheme.

Issues Resolved in Release 2.5.3

RN-001029-04, Release 2.5.3, Rev 05 

IP Phone Release Notes 2.5.3

DEF19446 

When a phone receives an INVITE, the user accepts the call (ACK) and the phone sends an OK 
response. If the Call Manager sends a Re-INVITE before the ACK, the phone freezes.

This is now corrected.

DEF19454 

If the phone is set to use Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) with a setting of "

SRTP 

Preferred

" mode, and in a non-SRTP session the phone receives a re-INVITE with Session 

Description Protocol (SDP) containing a crypto key, the phone answers with an OK response 
containing no crypto key in SRTP. The peer sends SRTP but the phone cannot decrypt it (since it's 
not in SRTP-mode). Phone sends unencrypted RTP. 

On a re-INVITE the phone now sets the local SDP. If there is a change involving the crypto key, the 
change is now included in the OK response. 

DEF19455 

When a re-INVITE with no SDP comes into a phone with an on-hold call, the phone doesn’t respond 
with its Codec list and crypto key.

This is now corrected.

DEF19466 

When a 67xxi phone is communicating with another 67xxi phone using SRTP for voice, 
communication works correctly. However, after approximately 20 minutes of communication, the line 
goes silent with no audio, even though SRTP packets are still being exchanged. 

This is now corrected.

DEF19588 

When the phone registered to the primary server, static TLS authentication performed as expected 
(phone used trusted certificate to validate server certificate). When the primary server failed and the 
phone performed a failover to the backup registrar, the certificate for the backup registrar was signed 
by the same root CA but the phone refused the certificate with “unknown CA”.

This has now been corrected and the phone now accepts the applicable certificate(s) from the 
backup registrar.

ENH17750 

Previously, the IP Phones did not parse Session Description Protocol (SDP) Annex B attribute when 
using a G.729AB codec. This caused an interoperability issue.

The phone now fully supports the G.729 Annex A and Annex B.

ENH17935 

A phone enabled with Link-Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) does not set the VLAN ID when 
receiving an LLDP frame containing Type-Length-Values (TLV) which sets the data and VLAN ID 
from the switch. 

The IP Phones now accept LLDP frames and the phones set the VLAN ID correctly.

ENH19694 

The default Network Time Protocol value on the IP Phones is now set to “

aastra.pool.ntp.org

.” This 

resolves some issues with certificate validation.

DEF20397

Network Packet Loss Rate (NLR) values provided by phone were missing fractional values and 
rounding was not always done correctly.

This is now corrected. NLR values now contain fractions if they exist and rounding is done correctly.

Usability

DEF18026 

If the “

Switch UI Focus to Ringing Line

” parameter is disabled, and two calls come into the phone 

at the same time (Line 1 and Line 2), when the User picks up the call on Line 1, a ringing is heard in 
the handset from Line 2.

This is now corrected. A User no longer hears ringing in the handset when picking up the first Line.

SIP IP Phone Models 9143i, 9480i, 9480i CT, and 67xxi Series Phones Release Note 2.5.3

DEF18140 

If there are two Users with different numbers that have the same Calling Line ID in Broadsoft, the 
signalling for BLF comes in only on the first BLF key.

This is now corrected. The signalling now comes in on both Users BLF keys as expected.

DEF18630 

In some call scenarios, the TLS/SRTP key icon displayed when it shouldn’t have (RTP used) or didn’t 
display when it should have. (SRTP used). This was inconsistent behavior for these scenarios.

This has been corrected and the TLS/SRTP key icon now displays (or doesn’t display) as expected.

DEF18733

Previously on the phones, when in a menu list, the User could press the number of the item in the list 
and then press the action key to go to the item’s menu.

Now after pressing the number of the item in the list, the phone goes directly to the item’s menu.

DEF20093 

When pressing the ACD key, the display showed “

Please log in

” in English, regardless of the 

language set on the phone.

This is now corrected. The prompt “

Please log in

” now displays in the language currently set on the 

phone.

DEF20366

When the phone is set to use SRTP and the mode is set to "

SRTP Only

", this is causing one-way 

voice path for active calls.

This is now corrected.

XML

DEF17457 

Previously, when you created a Textmenu with the '

wraplist

' tag set to 

yes

, and used it to display a 

succession of 2-line items and 1-line item, when you scrolled from a 2-line item to a 1-line item the 
second line of the previous item still displayed.

This is now corrected.

DEF17763

When entering values for XML objects, some non-ASCII UTF-8 characters (that use 2 bytes) were 
not correctly displayed.

This is now corrected.

DEF19494

When XML variables, such as $$SIPAUTHNAME$$, are passed to the phone using the 
AastraIpPhoneExecute object, the phone did not accept the variables.

This is now corrected.

ENH18492 

On 3-line LCD phones, if you create an AastraIPPhoneInput

 

field of type "string", there was no way 

to input a "+" character. 

You can now use the “0” key to enter a “+” for an XML object’s string.

ENH18956

Previously, in an XML tag, the application would wrap-around from the last entry in a menu list to the 
first entry, and likewise from the first entry to the last entry.

This wrapping has now been disabled to allow a User to stop at the first or last entry in a menu list.

ENH19092

Previously in XML TextMenu screens on the phone, pressing a number associated with the menu 
item did not launch that menu item.

Now, when you press the number for a menu item on an XML screen, the phone launches that menu 
item.

Currently, in an XML application, the Right navigation arrow (Done) on the phone ca be used for the 
NextURI, and the Left navigation arrow (Back) can be used for the PrevURI.

Now the phones can also use the Up and Down navigation arrows to push URIs and override the 
default behavior. These navigation keys can be used with the objects: TextScreen, 
FormattedTextScreen and ImageScreen.

Note: 

The navigation keys take their default actions (up, down, left, and right) unless a URI is 

specified.
