For optimal Nuacom VoIP system deployment consider the following general network advices:
- Disable SIP ALG or SIP Passthrough features if any.
- Increate the UDP timeout to 100 seconds, if it is less.
- Set VLANs to separate VoIP traffic from other.
- Set QoS policies to assure the highest priority for the VoIP traffic.
Note: VoIP traffic is not only what has the source or destination port 5060, there is also RTP (audio) traffic which is on a random, high-number port. To be able to capture this traffic for QoS purposes, you will need to create firewall policies based on source and destination IPs. You could either allocate a range of local IPs for handsets or if that's not possible like in the case when using soft-phones, you should check with NUACOM support which are the public IPs of your cloud account and create policies based on them.
