ORDERING GUIDE

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Cisco ® AS5400 Universal Gateway offers high-density data services. The rich set of Cisco IOS ® Software features available in the Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway makes the platform versatile and deployable in a wide range of network architectures.
The Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway chassis has seven slots that can take trunk cards and Universal Port digital signal processor (DSP) cards. We have created several easy-to-order bundles that meet most customer needs.

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, CE1, and CT3 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 AS5400 Universal Gateway. The RJ45 is sometimes referred to as RJ48C.

• What trunk signaling is used?

– The Cisco AS5400 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 specific 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?

• What kind 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 AS5400 Universal Gateway is designed to handle a maximum of 648 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 FR54-SLT-LIC (AS5400 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

• How much memory is required?

– Refer to the section on memory for defaults and maximums in this document.

Feature Licenses

This product can be ordered with the data license FR54-DATA-LIC. For running voice applications, we recommend that you order the AS5400HPX system.

FR54-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 TDM switching. This license does not cover the Cisco IOS Software features required for voice services.
Consult Appendix 1 for the number of licenses that need to be ordered for various CT1, CE1, and CT3 configurations.

Optional Feature Licenses

FR54-SLT-LIC

FR54-SLT-LIC is the feature license for the integrated SLT functions on the Cisco AS5400 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 Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway. Like the Cisco 26xx-based SLT, the Integrated SLT on a Cisco AS5400 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 AS5400 varies for different applications. Consult your Cisco representative for performance characteristics for the specific applications that you will be running on the gateway.
The AS5400 platform occupies two Rack Units (RUs) = 3.5 inches of rack space. The maximum power consumption of one AS5400 is 345W in the CT3 configuration with 648 active calls. The heat dissipation is 106 W/feet 2/vert. feet, 683-1177 BTU/hour.

ORDERING A SYSTEM

We have created easy-to-order bundle options for the most commonly used configurations.

Ordering Bundles

Pick the appropriate bundle based on the requirements (refer to the previous sections).
Each easy-order bundle contains the following (the quantities of each vary based on the configuration):

• IP Plus Cisco IOS Software

• Universal Port DSP card(s) (NP60s and/or NP108s)

• Trunk feature cards (8CT1/8CE1/CT3)

• Data licenses (the number of licenses depends upon the configuration)

• Dual AC Power Supply

• Power cord

• 2 meter Octal cable included when configuration uses 8PRI feature cards

• Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway chassis with default memory for boot flash, system flash, shared I/O memory, and main memory

You will have to choose

• The Cisco IOS software containing the features required

• The appropriate AC power cable, T1/E1 cables, and octal cables

• Optionally upgrade to a Dual DC Power supply

• Optionally upgrade the main synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM)

Appendix 2 contains a list of all the available bundles with a description of the included components.

EXAMPLE CONFIGURATIONS

This section provides a typical order that you can use as a reference

Large Indonesia ISP-Data Only

A large ISP in Indonesia wants to add capacity to existing dialup network by adding a network access server to terminate up to 16CE1s terminating at their central office.
You have determined that a single Cisco AS5400 with two octal CE1 trunk cards and five NP108 DSP cards, memory upgrade to 512 M of main memory, and a DC power supply are required. The customer will need a 1RU Octal cable patch panel. The signaling used is E1/R2 and you have verified that R2 country variant for Indonesia is supported. The ENTERPRISE PLUS IPSEC 3DES feature set is required.
The complete system configuration with the AS54-16E1-480-AC and upgrades for memory, DC power, Cisco IOS Software, and cables/shelves is shown in Table 3.
