Audiocodes MediaPack Loses Static IP Address

By default the Audiocodes MediaPacks, sent out a BootP request during a cold start of the device. If you have a enterprise DHCP server active in the network this will probaly respond (undesired) to this request and will give you a DHCP release from the DHCP pool. This way the MediaPack will receive a new IP address from the DHCP pool everytime it will have a cold start.

The setting ‘BootPSelectiveEnable = 1’ enables the device’s integral BootP client to filter unsolicited BootP/DHCP replies and accepts only BootP replies that contain the text ‘AUDC’ in the vendor specific information field of the request.

In the picture below you will find the cold boot flow from the MediaPack.

Shared Line Appearance handles multiple calls on a specific number called a shared number. Shared Line Appearance can configure any enterprise voice enabled user as a shared number with multiple lines to respond to multiple calls.

Any one of the delegates can pick up the call while the rest of the delegates get a notification on their phone about who picked up the call and which line has become busy as a result.

After some research in what i actually wanted/needed the OnePlus 6T was the best option for me (cost/performance).

Because i’m using the Microsoft Authenticator for quite some time and have most of my MFA accounts in there it was time to change all of the accounts. I’m using Office365 a lot, so i will describe how to this for your Azure account.
