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 AS5400HPX Universal Gateway. The RJ45 is sometimes referred to as RJ48C.

• What trunk signaling is used?

– The Cisco AS5400HPX 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?

• 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 upon the application. The Cisco AS5400HPX Universal Gateway is designed to handle a maximum of 648 dial sessions and 480 voice 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 FR54H-SLT-LIC (AS5400HPX 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 will 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. AS5400HPX Basic Feature Licenses

Part Number

Description

FR54H-DATA-LIC

Cisco AS5400HPX IOS Software Data License Per Port

FR54H-ENHVOX-LIC

Cisco AS5400HPX IOS Software Enhanced Voice License Per Port

FR54H-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.

FR54H-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, CE1, and CT3 configurations.

Optional Feature Licenses

• FR54H-SLT-LIC

– FR54H-SLT-LIC is the feature license for the integrated SLT function on the Cisco AS5400HPX Universal Gateway. This 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 AS5400HPX Universal Gateway. Like the Cisco 26xx-based SLT, the Integrated SLT on a Cisco AS5400HPX 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 AS5400HPX Universal Gateway varies for different applications. For typical voice only applications (G.711/20ms), the gateway is designed to service 480 calls at 7-10 calls/second (cps), burst traffic can be supported at up to 100 cps. Consult your Cisco representative for performance characteristics for the specific applications that you will run on the gateway.
The Cisco AS5400HPX Universal Gateway occupies two Rack Units (RUs) = 3.5 inches of rack space. The maximum power consumption of one Cisco AS5400HPX Universal Gateway is 345W in the CT3 configuration with 648 active calls. The heat dissipation is 106 W/feet 2/vert. feet, 683-1177 BTUs/hour.

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 AS5400HPX with two octal CE1 trunk cards and five NP108 DSP cards and a DC power supply are required. A 1RU Octal cable patch panel is required. The signaling used is E1/R2 and you have verified that R2 country variant for Indonesia is supported and have determined that they would need the ENTERPRISE PLUS IPSEC 3DES Cisco IOS Software. You have determined that voice services may be required soon.
The two options are to configure a system using the Cisco AS5400HPX starter kit or use the easy-to-order bundle AS54HPX-16E1-480AC and add options for what is not present in the bundle. Enhanced voice licenses (FR54H-ENHVOX-LIC) need to be ordered when voice services are deployed.
The complete system configuration using the Cisco AS5400HPX starter kit and adding options for DC power, Cisco IOS Software upgrade, data licenses, and the cable shelf would look like this (Table 5):
