2011-04-14Add Device State Information CCSS for Generic Devices.rmudgett1-1/+43
Add Asterisk Device State information and callbacks to the Call Completion Supplemental Services for generic agents. There are currently not many devices that have native support for CCSS. Even as the devices become available there may be other reasons why one may choose to not take advantage of the native abilities and stick with the generic implementation. The generic implementation is quite capable and could be greatly enhanced by adding device state capabilities. A phone could then subscribe to the device state with a BLF key in conjunction with Asterisk hints. The advantages of the device state information would allow a single button to: request CCSS, cancel a CCSS request, and display the current state of a CCSS request. For example, you may have a single button that when not lit, there is no active CCSS request. When you press that button, the dialplan can query the DEVICE_STATE() associated with that caller to determine whether they should be calling CallCompletionRequest() or CallCompletionCancel(). If there is currently a pending request, then the dialplan would cancel it. This also has the advantage of showing the true state of a request, which is an asynchronous call, even when CallCompletionRequest() thinks it was successful. The actual request could ultimately fail. Once lit, further feedback can be provided to the caller about the current state of their request since it will be updated by the CCSS State Machine as appropriate. The DEVICE_STATE mapping is configurable since the BLF being used on a given phone type may vary. The idea is to allow some level of customization as to the phone's behavior. As an example, you may want the BLF key to go solid once you have requested a callback. You may then want the LED to blink (typically ringing) when either the callback is in process, which is a visual indication that the incoming call is the desired callback. You may want it to blink when the callee is ready but you are busy, giving you a visual indication that the target is available as you may want to get off the line so that the callback can be successful. Device state information is sent back via the ast_devstate_prov_add() callback for any generic CCSS device as it traverses through the state machine. You simply provide a map between CC_STATE values and the corresponding AST_DEVICE state values. You could then generate hints against these states similar to what is possible today with Custom Devstates or MeetMe states. For example, you may have an extension 3000 that is currently associated with device SIP/3000. You could then create a feature code for that extension that may look something like: exten => *823000,hint,ccss:sip/3000 You would then subscribe a BLF button to *823000 which would point to the dialplan that handled CCSS requests/cancels using the available DEVICE_STATE() information about ccss:sip/3000 to make the decision about what to do.

2010-04-09Merge Call completion support into trunk.mmichelson1-0/+150
From Reviewboard: CCSS stands for Call Completion Supplementary Services. An admittedly out-of-date overview of the architecture can be found in the file doc/CCSS_architecture.pdf in the CCSS branch. Off the top of my head, the big differences between what is implemented and what is in the document are as follows: 1. We did not end up modifying the Hangup application at all. 2. The document states that a single call completion monitor may be used across multiple calls to the same device. This proved to not be such a good idea when implementing protocol-specific monitors, and so we ended up using one monitor per-device per-call. 3. There are some configuration options which were conceived after the document was written. These are documented in the ccss.conf.sample that is on this review request. For some basic understanding of terminology used throughout this code, see the ccss.tex document that is on this review. This implements CCBS and CCNR in several flavors. First up is a "generic" implementation, which can work over any channel technology provided that the channel technology can accurately report device state. Call completion is requested using the dialplan application CallCompletionRequest and can be canceled using CallCompletionCancel. Device state subscriptions are used in order to monitor the state of called parties. Next, there is a SIP-specific implementation of call completion. This method uses the methods outlined in draft-ietf-bliss-call-completion-06 to implement call completion using SIP signaling. There are a few things to note here: * The agent/monitor terminology used throughout Asterisk sometimes is the reverse of what is defined in the referenced draft. * Implementation of the draft required support for SIP PUBLISH. I attempted to write this in a generic-enough fashion such that if someone were to want to write PUBLISH support for other event packages, such as dialog-state or presence, most of the effort would be in writing callbacks specific to the event package. * A subportion of supporting PUBLISH reception was that we had to implement a PIDF parser. The PIDF support added is a bit minimal. I first wrote a validation routine to ensure that the PIDF document is formatted properly. The rest of the PIDF reading is done in-line in the call-completion-specific PUBLISH-handling code. In other words, while there is PIDF support here, it is not in any state where it could easily be applied to other event packages as is. Finally, there are a variety of ISDN-related call completion protocols supported. These were written by Richard Mudgett, and as such I can't really say much about their implementation. There are notes in the CHANGES file that indicate the ISDN protocols over which call completion is supported.
