Overview of the Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway

This chapter provides a brief description of the Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway (VG) and contains the following sections:

Overview

The Cisco VG350 service module is a high-density analog voice gateway. It is an intermediate path that enables TDM to IP transition.

The Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway supports the following interfaces:

  • Gigabit Ethernet (GE)
  • USB
  • High-Speed WAN Interface Card (HWIC) and Voice/WAN Interface Card (VWIC)
  • Double-Wide Service Module (DWSM) interface

Warning This unit is intended for installation in restricted access areas. A restricted access area can be accessed only through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means by security.

Software Elements

The operating system for the Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway is the Cisco IOS software that resides in flash memory.

Configuration Connections

You can use an ASCII terminal or a PC to configure a Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway. The configuration can be performed in several ways:

  • Locally, with a direct connection through the console port
  • Remotely, with a connection through the auxiliary port and a modem
  • Through Telnet and TFTP

Configuration Methods

Automated Configuration

If your Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway was ordered with the Simple Network-Enabled Auto-Provision (SNAP) option, no onsite configuration is required. When the Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway is powered on and connected, the SNAP application downloads the applicable configuration files automatically.

Manual Configuration

When a Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway is first installed, use the procedure in the “Power-On Procedure” section for the initial configuration. This sets the basic communication parameters.

After the Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway is operating and able to communicate, use the procedures in Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway Software Configuration Guide to configure the specific services and functions or to make changes to the existing configuration.

There are multiple methods for configuring a Cisco VG350 Voice Gateway:

  • System configuration dialog
  • Configuration mode—Cisco IOS software CLI
  • setup command facility—Remote configuration through a LAN
  • SNMP-based application—CiscoView or HP OpenView
  • HTTP-based configuration server—Provides access to the CLI from a web browser
