Audiocodes (Remote Site ) <-> Skype for Business Mediation Pool <-> Skype for Business Enterprise Pool


During a recent migration from Audiocodes <-> SBA <-> SFB FE Pool to the current Audiocodes <-> SFB Mediation Pool <-> SFB FE Pool, users in the remote site experienced call drops during a transfer.

Regardless of the call flow ie.  the call entering via Gateway -> SFB -> Auto Attendant or directly to the users DID when that user transferred the call to another user the call would drop.


We enabled tracing to a syslog server and captured the call information, as we were looking through the logs we found that the Gateway was dropping the call in the Bye event with the

Reason: Q.850 ;cause=31 ;text=”local, RTP Broken Connection”

To fix this issue here is what was done:

  1. Logged into the Audiocodes Gateway 
  2. Click Setup -> Signaling&Media -> Expand Coders & Profiles -> Click IP Profiles -> Edit your SFB Profile -> Broken Connection Mode -> Select Ignore -> Click Apply 
  3. Expand SIP Definitions -> Click SIP Definitions General Settings -> Broken Connection Mode -> Select Ignore -> Click Apply -> Click Save

Once the save was completed, the call transfers were successful.
