Readme for Dial-Only Dial Feature Card
This document describes the dial-only dial feature card (DFC) on the Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM universal gateways and contains the following sections:
Caution The dial-only DFC does not support voice or fax services. If you configure your universal gateway for voice of fax services, unpredictable results can occur if the dial-only DFC is installed in the chassis. Before installing the dial-only DFC in a universal gateway, see Table 1 for more information.
Two different types of digital signal processor (DSP) DFCs are available for Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM universal gateways.
•Universal port DFC—The existing universal port DFC is unchanged, and supports voice, fax, and dial services.
•Dial-only DFC—The new dial-only DFC supports 60 (DL-60) to 108 (DL-108) dial calls in a Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM universal gateway. It does not support voice or fax services. (See Figure 1 and Figure 2.)
Note Dial services include modem calls (all modulations), ISDN digital calls, V.110 data calls, and V.120 data calls. Modem pass-through calls are not included in dial services.

Figure 2 Dial-Only DFC (DL-108) Front Panel
Table 1 describes the behavior of the Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM universal gateways with dial-only DFCs, universal port DFCs, or both installed in the chassis.
Caution If a dial-only DFC is installed in a chassis with the universal port DFC, only dial services are supported. We do not recommend deploying dial-only DFCs in a chassis that supports voice and fax services, because voice or fax calls assigned to the dial-only DFC will fail.
Viewing Dial-Only DFC Status Using the CLI
To view the status of the dial-only DFC, you can use the commands described in the table below in privileged EXEC mode.
This section provides the following examples:

Configuring the Dial-Only DFC
The dial-only DFC is configured in the same way as the universal port DFC. This allows the dial-only DFC to be used with your existing software configuration.
For information about configuring the dial-only DFC, see the "Managing and Troubleshooting the Universal Port Card" chapter of the Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM Universal Gateways Software Configuration Guide at this URL:

Cisco Product Security Overview
Cisco provides a free online Security Vulnerability Policy portal at this URL:
From this site, you can perform these tasks:
•Report security vulnerabilities in Cisco products.
•Obtain assistance with security incidents that involve Cisco products.
•Register to receive security information from Cisco.
A current list of security advisories and notices for Cisco products is available at this URL:
If you prefer to see advisories and notices as they are updated in real time, you can access a Product Security Incident Response Team Really Simple Syndication (PSIRT RSS) feed from this URL:
Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products
Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:
•Emergencies — firstname.lastname@example.org
An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.
•Nonemergencies — email@example.com
In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:
•1 877 228-7302
•1 408 525-6532
Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.
Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:
The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.
Obtaining Technical Assistance
Cisco Technical Support provides 24-hour-a-day award-winning technical assistance. The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, if you have a valid Cisco service contract, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not have a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.
Cisco Technical Support & Documentation Website
The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, at this URL:
Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:
Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.
Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:
For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
