FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide

Integrating FortiVoice with Twilio

This section describes how to configure the FortiVoice phone system to provide a telephony service with Twilio’s elastic SIP trunking. The integration enables incoming calls to the FortiVoice phone system to be routed to Twilio for additional services such as interactive voice response (IVR) or speech recognition. After completing the user data collection and responses, the call control can be subsequently transferred to a telephone extension or an agent served by the FortiVoice phone system.

The FortiVoice dial plan provides digit translation and call routing for the system. Use the dial plan to customize the routing of calls to and from the Twilio platform. If Twilio uses a SIP REFER to implement a call back to FortiVoice, you do not have to configure an inbound dial plan.

The following diagram illustrates an example network topology of FortiVoice with Twilio.

 

 

 

Considerations about accessing and using Twilio:

  • A Twilio demo account does not allow you to call from and to numbers that you did not add to the FortiVoice phone system. Therefore, it is a good idea to upgrade your Twilio account to perform your testing.

  • Twilio treats a SIP trunk (in and out) as two separate items.

  • Twilio uses a specific number format (+1xxxyyyyyyy) where xxx is the area code and yyyyyyy is the phone number.

To complete the configuration tasks on Twilio

  1. Sign up for a Twilio paid account. The demo account has too many restrictions.
  2. Create and configure a Twilio elastic SIP trunk. After you complete this task, you will receive a uniform resource identifier (URI). Twilio's elastic SIP trunking uses an fully qualified domain name (FQDN) as a termination URI that is used by the FortiVoice phone system to direct SIP traffic towards Twilio.
  3. Take note of this URI because you will need this URI when you set the SIP server during the configuration of the FortiVoice SIP trunk.

To create a FortiVoice SIP trunk

  1. In the FortiVoice web-based manager, go to Trunk > VoIP > SIP.
  2. Click New.
  3. Configure the following parameters:

    With the known number of max channels, if you need to reserve incoming channels, you can enter the number of outgoing channels allowed and the remaining channels are for incoming calls.

    User=Phone in SIP URI

    Keep this setting disabled.

    Inband ringtone (Early media)

    Keep this setting disabled.

    Caller ID Option

    Keep the default settings.
