Description

Use this cmdlet to create a new Session Border Controller (SBC) configuration. Each configuration contains specific settings for an SBC. These settings configure such entities as the SIP signaling port, whether media bypass is enabled on this SBC, will the SBC send SIP Options, and specify the limit of maximum concurrent sessions. The cmdlet also lets the administrator drain the SBC by setting parameter -Enabled to $true or $false state. When the Enabled parameter is set to $false, the SBC will continue existing calls, but all new calls will be routed to another SBC in a route (if one exists).

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> New-CsOnlinePSTNGateway -FQDN sbc.contoso.com -SIPSignalingPort 5061

This example creates an SBC with FQDN sbc.contoso.com and signaling port 5061. All others parameters will stay default. Note the SBC will be in the disabled state.

Example 2

PS C:\> New-CsOnlinePSTNGateway -FQDN sbc.contoso.com -SIPSignalingPort 5061 -ForwardPAI $true -Enabled $true

This example creates an SBC with FQDN sbc.contoso.com and signaling port 5061. For each outbound to SBC session, the Direct Routing interface will report in P-Asserted-Identity fields the TEL URI and SIP address of the user who made a call. This is useful when a tenant administrator sets the identity of the caller as "Anonymous" or a general number of the company, but for billing purposes the real identity of the user is required.

Parameters

-BypassMode

Possible values are "None", "Always" and "OnlyForLocalUsers". By setting "Always" mode you indicate that your network is fully routable. If a user usually in site "Seattle", travels to site "Tallinn" and tries to use SBC located in Seattle we will try to deliver the traffic to Seattle assuming that there is connection between Tallinn and Seattle offices. With "OnlyForLocaUsers" you indicate that there is no direct connection between sites. In example above, the traffic will not be send directly from Tallinn to Seattle.

Type:String

-CodecPriority

Allows choice of codec priority when media is negotiated between Media Proxy and SBC. Default priority is ("SILKWB,SILKNB,PCMU,PCMA").

-Enabled

Used to enable this SBC for outbound calls. Can be used to temporarily remove the SBC from service while it is being updated or during maintenance. Note if the parameter is not set the SBC will be created as disabled (default value -Enabled $false).

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:$false
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-ExcludedCodecs

Allows some codecs to be excluded when media is being negotiated between Media Proxy and SBC.

Type:String

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-FailoverResponseCodes

If Direct Routing receives any 4xx or 6xx SIP error code in response to an outgoing Invite the call is considered completed by default. (Outgoing in this context is a call from a Teams client to the PSTN with traffic flow: Teams Client -> Direct Routing -> SBC -> Telephony network). Setting the SIP codes in this parameter forces Direct Routing on receiving the specified codes try another SBC (if another SBC exists in the voice routing policy of the user). Find more information in the "Reference" section of "Phone System Direct Routing" documentation.

Type:Int
Position:Named
Default value:408, 503, 504
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-FailoverTimeSeconds

When set to 10 (default value), outbound calls that are not answered by the gateway within 10 seconds are routed to the next available trunk; if there are no additional trunks, then the call is automatically dropped. In an organization with slow networks and slow gateway responses, that could potentially result in calls being dropped unnecessarily. The default value is 10.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:10
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-Force

The Force switch specifies whether to suppress warning and confirmation messages. It can be useful in scripting to suppress interactive prompts. If the Force switch isn't provided in the command, you're prompted for administrative input if required.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-ForwardCallHistory

Indicates whether call history information will be forwarded to the SBC. If enabled, the Office 365 PSTN Proxy sends two headers: History-info and Referred-By. The default value is False ($False).

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:$false
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-ForwardPai

Indicates whether the P-Asserted-Identity (PAI) header will be forwarded along with the call. The PAI header provides a way to verify the identity of the caller. The default value is False ($False). Setting this parameter to $true will render the from header anonymous, in accordance of RFC5379 and RFC3325.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:$false
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-Fqdn

Limited to 63 characters, the FQDN registered for the SBC. Copied automatically to Identity of the SBC field.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-GatewaySiteId

PSTN Gateway Site Id.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-GatewaySiteLbrEnabled

Used to enable this SBC to report assigned site location. Site location is used for Location Based Routing. When this parameter is enabled ($True), the SBC will report the site name as defined by the tenant administrator. On an incoming call to a Teams user the value of the site assigned to the SBC is compared with the value of the site assigned to the user to make a routing decision. The parameter is mandatory for enabling Location Based Routing feature. The default value is False ($False).

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:$false
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Online
-GenerateRingingWhileLocatingUser

This parameter is applicableis only for Direct Routing in non-media bypass mode. Sometimes inbound calls from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) to Teams clients can take longer than expected to be established. This can occur for various reasons. When this happens, the caller might not hear anything, the Teams client doesn't ring, and the call might be canceled by some telecommunications providers. This parameter helps to avoid unexpected silences that can occur in this scenario. When enabled for inbound calls from the PSTN to Teams clients, a distinctive audio signal is played to the caller to indicate that Teams is in the process of establishing the call.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:True
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Identity

When creating a new SBC, the identity must be identical to the -FQDN parameter, described above. If the parameter is not defined the Identity will be copied from the -FQDN parameter. The Identity parameter is not mandatory.
