Quick Start Guide for Cisco 1040 Sensor
This guide is designed to help you quickly set up and use your Cisco 1040 Sensor (Cisco 1040). A Cisco 1040 is a shelf-top unit that connects to the network and obtains Power over Ethernet (PoE) through a Cisco Catalyst switch. It is easy to connect your Cisco 1040. These sections explain what a Cisco 1040 does and how it fits in with products in the Cisco Unified Communications Management Suite:
Cisco 1040s and Cisco Unified Service Monitor
Cisco 1040s listen to Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) voice traffic on a Switch Port Analyzer (SPAN) port that you must configure to mirror voice traffic on phone ports or voice VLANs. Cisco 1040 calculates Mean Opinion Scores (MOS) and sends data at 60-second intervals to Cisco Unified Service Monitor (Service Monitor), a product from the Cisco Unified Communications Management Suite.
Service Monitor examines the MOS value and compares it against a user-specified threshold value. When MOS drops below the threshold, Service Monitor generates SNMP traps and sends them to up to four recipients. A single Service Monitor can receive and analyze MOS data from multiple Cisco 1040s. If you have more than one Service Monitor, you can configure Cisco 1040s to fail over to a secondary or tertiary service monitor. For more information, see User Guide for Cisco Unified Service Monitor.
Cisco 1040s and Cisco Unified Operations Manager
You can use Cisco Unified Operations Manager (Operations Manager) to further analyze, display, and act on the traps that Cisco 1040 generates. When configured as a trap recipient from Service Monitor, Operations Manager generates service quality events, displays and tracks these events on a real-time dashboard, and displays and stores event history. You can configure additional event settings on Operations Manager that alert you to low MOS and to the occurrence of many service quality events during a period of time. In addition, you can configure Operations Manager to send notifications by e-mail, SNMP trap, and syslog message.
2 Preparing to Connect Your Cisco 1040
This section describes tasks that you must perform the first time you set up your network to support Cisco 1040 operations. If you have not already completed the following tasks, it is advisable to complete them so that your Cisco 1040 becomes fully operational minutes after you connect it.
Install and Configure Cisco Unified Service Monitor
Instructions for completing these tasks are available in User Guide for Cisco Unified Service Monitor and in Service Monitor online help:
•Using Service Monitor, perform the following tasks:
–Set up Service Monitor. Among other parameters, you will specify a TFTP server and whether Cisco 1040s can register with the Service Monitor automatically or manually.
–Edit configuration files for Cisco 1040s.
Note You can edit a single default configuration file (used in automatic registration) and you can edit configuration files for each Cisco 1040 (used in manual registration).
•From the command line on the system where Service Monitor is installed, copy these files from the Service Monitor system to the TFTP server:
–Configuration files for Cisco 1040s. These include:
QOVDefault.CNF—The default configuration file
QOVmacaddress.CNF—Configuration files for specific Cisco 1040s where macaddress is the MAC address of the Cisco 1040
–The binary image file for Cisco 1040s. The filename format is
SvcMon<vendor code><Cisco 1040 type><major version>_<minor version><bugfix version>.img. For example:SvcMonAA2_24.img
Configure DHCP Server Option 150
Configure your DHCP server so that option 150 returns the IP address for the TFTP server and provides an IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and, optionally, a DNS server for a Cisco 1040.
If you would like to configure a Cisco router as a DHCP server, see the following URL.
(Optional) Configure DNS
If you are using DNS in your network, configure DNS entries for Cisco 1040s.
