ORDERING GUIDE

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Cisco ® AS5350 Universal Gateway offers high-density voice, wireless, fax, and data services. Cisco Any Service for Any Port (ASAP) architecture enables the platform to be used as both a Voice Gateway and a Network Access Server. The rich set of Cisco IOS ® Software features available in Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway makes the platforms versatile and deployable in a wide range of network architectures.
The Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway chassis has three slots that can take trunk cards and Universal Port digital signal processor (DSP) cards. The following feature card options allow you to customize the platform configuration to meet specific customer needs.

• The trunk card options that are available for this platform are 2CT1, 2CE1, 4CT1, 4CE1, 8CT1, and 8CE1.

• The Universal Port DSP card options that are available for this platform are NP108 (108 universal ports) and NP60 (60 universal ports).

This document describes how to order the Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway and the relevant software licenses required for the gateway features.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Before you begin, have information ready as indicated by the following questions:

• Will the customer use AC or DC power supply?

• What is the ingress trunk type?

– The platform supports CT1 and CE1 ingress trunks.

• What cable/connector type is required to connect the trunks?

– Specific cable types like DB15, RJ45, BNC, etc. may be required to connect the E1/T1 trunks to the Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway. The RJ45 is sometimes referred to as RJ48C.

• What trunk signaling is used?

– The Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway supports a variety of trunk signaling protocols including T1 or E1 Primary Rate Interface (PRI), Channel Associated Signaling (CAS), and E1/R2. If using E1/R2 signaling, check with your Cisco Systems® representative that the platform supports the country variant. A list of country variants supported is at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/univgate/ps501/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008007df5b.html#wp1081171. Signaling System 7 (SS7) signaling is also supported with the use of an external call agent such as the BTS10200 or the PGW2200.

• If T1 or E1 cables will be used for ingress, does the customer need the optional 8-PRI-breakout cable rack mount bracket to organize cabling?

• Which of the following kinds of calls will be terminated on the platform?

– Modem calls, ISDN digital calls, wireless (V.110, V.120) calls, voice calls, Voice Extensible Markup Language (VXML), etc., or a combination of the above?

• How many simultaneous sessions need to be supported?

– The maximum number of sessions that can be supported on one chassis varies depending on the application. The Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway is designed to handle a maximum of 216 voice or dial sessions. Consult your Cisco representative to determine the performance and capabilities of the platform for your specific applications.

• Is the platform used along with PGW2200 or any other vendor's Signaling System 7 (SS7) controller?

– To access the Integrated Signaling Link Terminal (SLT) feature, order the license FR535-SLT-LIC (AS5350 Cisco IOS Software Integrated SLT License priced per platform).

• What Cisco IOS Software features are required?

– Basic Cisco IOS Software features are present in the IP PLUS feature set

– Applications requiring Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) encryption, such as SSHv2 need the IP PLUS 3DES feature set

– Lawful Intercept is supported in IP PLUS 3DES LAWFUL INTERCEPT feature set

– X.25, Appletalk, and other non-IP protocols are supported on the ENTERPRISE PLUS feature set

– Enterprise applications requiring 3DES encryption need the ENTERPRISE PLUS 3DES feature set

FEATURE LICENSES

All orders must include one of the basic feature licenses listed in Table 1.

Table 1. AS5350 Basic Feature Licenses

Part Number

Description

FR535-DATA-LIC

AS5350 Cisco IOS Software Data License Per Port

FR535-ENHVOX-LIC

AS5350 Cisco IOS Software Enhanced Voice License Per Port

• FR535-DATA-LIC

– The Data-Only license covers all Cisco IOS Software features required for remote access and dial services. This license includes support for access VPN, ISDN remote access, and time-division multiplexing (TDM) switching. This license does not cover the Cisco IOS Software features required for voice services.

• FR535-ENHVOX-LIC

– The Voice-Only license covers all Cisco IOS Software features required for all voice and fax relay services (voice codec, T.38 Fax Relay, H.323, and Session Initiation Protocol [SIP], Media Gateway Control Protocol [MGCP], VXML, etc). This license does not cover the Cisco IOS Software features required for basic remote access and dial services.

Consult Appendix 1 for the number of licenses that need to be ordered for various CT1 and CE1 configurations.

Optional Feature Licenses

• FR535-SLT-LIC

– FR535-SLT-LIC is the feature license for the integrated SLT function on the Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway. The Integrated SLT feature pulls existing Cisco distributed Message Transfer Part (MTP) SS7 signaling architecture functions-previously available only on Cisco 26xx-based SLTs-directly onto a single Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway. Like the Cisco 26xx-based SLT, the Integrated SLT on a Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway backhauls upper-layer SS7 protocols across an IP network using Cisco Reliable User Datagram Protocol (RUDP), terminating the MTP1 and MTP2 layers of the SS7 protocol stack at the Media Gateway Controller (MGC).

Performance and Capacity

The performance and capacity of the Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway varies for different applications. For example, the gateway is designed to handle 216 dial sessions. Consult your Cisco representative for performance characteristics for the specific applications that you will be running on the gateway.
The Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway occupies one Rack Unit (RU) = 1.73 inches of rack space. The maximum power consumption of one Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway is 168W in the 8E1 configuration with 216 active calls. The heat dissipation is 573 BTUs/hour.

ORDERING A SYSTEM

We have created easy-to-order bundle options for the most commonly used voice and data configurations. This saves you time and effort in configuring the Cisco AS5350 Universal Gateway and offers a significant pricing advantage.
