Request for Spectralink OAI Protocol Specification

Request for Spectralink OAI Protocol Specification

Request for Spectralink OAI Protocol Specification

We have a Spectralink Gateway and MH160 phones that receive text messages sent from this gateway. Ages ago, I had the specs on the OAI Protocol for setting up this communication and I can no longer find that documentation. I contacted an old email address that I had, oai@spectralink.com, and haven't received a response. The specification is open source.

Does anyone have the documentation on the Spectralink OAI Protocol?
The text message protocol is a simple stream of TCP/IP packets.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.


P.S. I have captured some of the packet data that is sent to the Spectralink Gateway from a 3rd party application. Worst case scenario is that I will attempt to reverse engineer it. Below is a sample of the communication.
