Preface


The Cisco Integrated Communications System (ICS) 7750 (referred to as the Cisco ICS 7750 or the system) is an integrated communications platform designed to enable easy, rapid deployment and management of key data and converged voice/data applications and services, including IP telephony, content delivery networking, multiservice routing, and more. The Cisco ICS 7750 gives businesses a cost-effective platform for quick deployment of powerful New World applications such as Cisco CallManager, Cisco Unity Voice Messaging, and Cisco Customer Response Applications (CRA).

The Cisco ICS 7750 has all the elements needed to deliver data, voice, and video in a single chassis—multiservice router/voice gateway cards based on Cisco IOS software, application server cards running core voice applications, call processing software, and integrated web-based system management software, a data switching interface card for connectivity to Catalyst 3524-PWR XL switches, and a card that monitors system health.

This section discusses the intended audience, scope, and organization of this Cisco ICS 7750 Installation and Configuration Guide and defines the conventions used to convey instructions and information.

Audience

This guide is intended for personnel including the following:

Administrators and installers with some technical networking and telephony background and experience

Administrators who are familiar with the fundamentals of router- and switch-based internetworking, but who might have limited familiarity with Cisco IOS software

Administrators and installers who are responsible for operating, monitoring, maintaining, and troubleshooting internetworking and telephony equipment

It is assumed that you are familiar with the following concepts and their related terminology:

Local Ethernet

Wide-area networking

Telephony

Organization

This guide is organized as follows:

"Cisco ICS 7750 System Overview," briefly describes the product and its hardware and software components.

"Preparing to Install the Cisco ICS 7750," describes actions you must take and concepts you should understand before installing the system.

"Installing the Cisco ICS 7750 Hardware," describes how to mount the system and connect cables to the individual subsystem components, which come preinstalled in the chassis. It also gives guidelines for power supply use and grounding, and describes how to connect power to the system and how to verify system installation using system card LEDs.

Chapter 4, "Completing the Cisco ICS 7750 Installation," describes how to run the initial configuration program to assign basic networking and security information to the system, how to install the Cisco CallManager software, how to connect the system to a LAN, and how to IP phones, other IP devices, and a modem to the system.

"Operating the Cisco ICS 7750," describes the various interfaces used to connect to system software and system cards, how to assign a new hostname, how to backup system data, and how to shutdown the system.

"Configuring the Cisco ICS 7750," gives information on configuring system cards and the Cisco CallManager application, describes how to set the system date and time and configure Network Time Protocol (NTP) on the system, and gives information on installing and configuring Cisco Unity Voice Mail.

"Cisco ICS 7750 Sample Configurations," provides voice and data configuration examples.

"Maintaining the Cisco ICS 7750," describes how to remove and replace system cards and the various replaceable hardware components, install and configure a modem for use with the system, restore system data, and upgrade system software components.

"System Power Consumption," provides power consumption information for the system, based on installed components.

"PVDM Requirements," provides guidelines on the packet voice data modules (PVDMs) that are required for various combinations of WAN interface cards (WICs), voice WAN interface cards (VWICs), and voice interface cards (VICs) that are available for use on multiservice route processor (MRP) cards and analog station interface (ASI) cards.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.

Cisco TAC inquiries are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

The Cisco TAC resource that you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.

Cisco TAC Web Site

You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:

http://www.cisco.com/register/

If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml

Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
