The Nortel/Avaya 2245 Wireless Gateway is a essentially a protocol translator running Linux. The wireless gateway bridges between the Nortel/Avaya OEM’d SpectraLink wireless handsets (6120, 6140) which utilize SpectraLink Voice Priority (SVP) and the Avaya Call Server 1000, Signaling Server, and Voice Gateway Media Cards running UNIStim.
Unfortunately the 2245 doesn’t ship with the correct QoS configuration and instead must be manually configured in order to attain the proper DiffServ/QoS markings between the wireless telephones (WT), the 2245 and the call server.
From the main menu of the 2245 select SVP-II Configuration, then select QoS Configuration and modify the options as depicted below;
QoS Configuration Hostname: [slnk-011111], Address: 10.1.1.10 Traffic Class DSCP Tag ---------------- ---------- Administration Default WT (In call) 46 WT (Standby) 40 RTP 46 PBX 40 Inter-SVP2 Default

I am a BT engineer, one of my customers is a large hospital, the have purchased 4 Avaya 6120 handsets as a “trial” but no 2245 spectralink. In the dim and distant past, I did get one of these to work without a 2245 to act as proxy but cannot remember how.
Can you help?

If you have the latest code the wireless handsets can utilize WMM (wireless infrastructure also needs to support WMM) instead of SVP. You’ll still need to connect the handsets to a compatible Call Server such as a CS1000E or BCM. You’ll need to manually configure the SSID and encryption key either manually or via the HAT tool using the dock.
