Cisco BE3000 provides two RJ-45 ports for T1 connections. You can configure a circuit on the internal gateway in BE3000 through the First Time Setup Wizard or post installation.

First Time Setup Wizard

  1. Open a browser, and enter the BE3000 IP address.

  2. Use these credentials in order to log in:

    • Username: admin
    • Password: BE-3000


  3. Proceed with the First Time Setup Wizard. For detailed information about the First Time Setup Wizard, refer to the Using the First Time Setup Wizard section of the Cisco Business Edition 3000 (Single-Site Deployment) Implementation Guide (PDF Download).

  4. In the Setup Mode (Step 2 of 2) area, click the Manual Setup radio button.


  5. On the System Identification page, enter the required information. IP Address (System) is the IP address for the BE3000, and IP Address (Media Resource) is the IP address for the internal gateway.


    Note: You might receive this warning if you connected your computer directly to the BE3000. Click Continue to proceed with the configuration.


  6. In the Configure Port area, enter the settings that apply to your circuit (as provided to you be the telco) in order to define your Primary Rate Interface (PRI) setup for the internal gateway.




  7. Repeat the previous step if you intend to use the second port on the internal gateway in the next step.

  8. Continue with the First Time Setup Wizard. Once you click Finish, the server restarts.

  9. After the server restarts, connect it to your network, then browse to it from another computer on the same network.

  10. Connect your circuit to the proper port, and verify that the alarm clears on the Health Summary page.
    If all layers are functional, the Health Summary page should appear as follows:


Post Installation

  1. Connect your circuit to the port that you intend to provision.

  2. Log in to the BE3000.

  3. Go to Connections > PSTN Connections.

  4. Click Add PSTN Connection.


  5. Click Connection Type, and choose your PSTN connection type from the Connection Type drop-down list.


  6. Click Device, choose CUCMBE3000 from the Device Type drop-down list, and choose internal-gateway from the Device drop-down list.


  7. Click Provider, and choose the service provider that matches your telco configuration.

  8. Click Connection Settings in order to verify the connection settings.


  1. On the Connection Settings page, verify that you have selected the appropriate port:

    S0/SU0/DS1-0 is port 0
    S0/SU0/DS1-1 is port 1

  2. Verify your protocol type is appropriate.


  3. Click Finish. If the process is successful, the Add was successful message appears as shown in this image:


  4. Go to Monitoring > Health Summary, and verify that the alarms are still clear.
