- Navigate to Telephony Control Server -> Business Group -> Quick Tasks -> Quick Add PSTN GW
The fields for the BG (Business Group) and the PNP (Private Numbering Plan) are already filled out by the last selected BG and PNP in the BG Center.
- Navigate to the Quick Add PSTN Gateway area.
- Enter a gateway name in the Gateway Name field.
The name entered here is used as external and internal display name.
- The name of the Private Numbering Plan currently assigned to the selected subscriber is displayed in the Numbering Plan read-only display field. When creating a subscriber, the default PNP of the BG is preselected for the subscriber in the Numbering Plan field. Click the “...” button next to Numbering Plan.
The Numbering Plan List dialog opens showing the list of available Private Numbering Plans.
- Select a Numbering Plan from the list by checking its radio button and click OK.
- Click the "..." button to select a Routing Area which can be used for several locations (gateways) in a BG (e.g. for Munich and for Berlin).
The Select Routing Area for Subscriber dialog is displayed.
- Navigate to the Connection area where you add the IP Address and a Port Number of the gateway.
- Check/Uncheck the checkbox next to Enable SIPQ Signaling
- If Enable SIPQ Signaling is checked (enabled), a dropdown list to the right will be appear allowing the user to select one of the following options:
– Telephony Control Server (default) – the Registration Type is automatically set to Static and the Registration Type dropdown list below will be greyed out. In this case continue with step 11.
– HiPath4000/3000 – the Registration Type is automatically set to Dynamic. The Registration Type dropdown list below will be greyed out as well as the SIP Address of Gateway field. In this case continue with step 13.
- If Enable SIPQ Signaling is cleared (disabled), both Registration Types (Static and Dynamic) are available. In this case continue with step 10.
- Specify the Type (Registration Type)of the endpoint:
- Static - If you configure Static as the registration type for a SIP Endpoint, you must also specify the signaling address type and a valid Endpoint address and signaling port.
- Dynamic (Default) - If you configure Dynamic as the registration type for a SIP Endpoint, the signaling address type automatically changes to IP Address or FQDN, the signaling IP address defaults to 0.0.0.0, and the signaling port defaults to 5060. These values are updated appropriately upon Endpoint registration.
- Enter the SIP Address of Gateway constisting of:
- the IP Address
- the Port Number
- After entering the IP Address and the Port Number of the gateway, click the Test button in order to test the connection from the softswitch and the gateway.
The default Port Number is 5060
In case of successfull connection the message the action has been compledted sucessfully will be displayed.
- Navigate to the Routing area
- Check oder uncheck the Enable Routing entries checkbox.
- If the Enable Routing entries option is activated (enabled), the PACs and Destination Codes for local, national and international calls will be created in the BG numbering plan. In this case continue with step 14.
