Intel Dialogic D/41EPCI, D/41JCT-LS, and D/41JCT-Euro

The D/41EPCI, D/41JCT-LS, and D/41JCT-Euro voice cards provide four independent voice-processing ports in a single PCI slot. The cards connect four phone-line interface circuits directly to analog loop-start lines by using RJ-11 connectors.

If you are installing cards that have H.100 connectors, you need an H.100 cable that has at least as many connectors as you have cards (you must connect all cards by using a single cable) but no more than five extra connectors.

To Set the D/41EPCI Card Switches and Jumpers


Step 1 Set the rotary switch (SW1) to a unique value for each card.

Each Intel Dialogic card in the Cisco Unity server or expansion chassis must have a unique value, starting with 1 and continuing in sequence on subsequent cards. For example, set the rotary switch on the first three voice cards as shown below. This is also the order in which you install the cards in the server or expansion chassis.

Step 2 Set SW2 switches to Off on each card.

Step 3 Settings for jumpers JP2 through JP5 depend on the number of D/41EPCI voice cards in the Cisco Unity server or expansion chassis:

One card

Set jumpers JP2 through JP5 to Off (Figure A-4) on
the card.

Two cards

Set jumpers JP2 through JP5 to On (Figure A-5) on
both cards.

Three or more cards

Set jumpers JP2 through JP5 to On (Figure A-5) on the first and last cards.

Set jumpers JP2 through JP5 to Off (Figure A-4) on all other cards.

Figure A-5 D/41EPCI Jumpers JP2 Through JP 5: On

Step 4 On jumpers JP6 and JP7, install shunts on the top two pins (1 and 2).


To Set the D/41JCT-LS and D/41JCT-Euro Card Switches and Jumpers


Step 1 Set the rotary switch (SW30) to a unique value for each card.

Each Intel Dialogic card in the Cisco Unity server or expansion chassis must have a unique value, starting with 1 and continuing in sequence on subsequent cards. For example, set the rotary switch on the first three voice cards as shown below. This is also the order in which you install the cards in the Cisco Unity server or expansion chassis.

Step 2 Set the SW4 hook-state switch to Off.

Step 3 Settings for jumpers JP1 and JP2 are as follows:

Jumper JP1 is reserved. Do not install a shunt across the pins of JP1.

Set jumper JP2 according to the number of D/41JCT-LS or D/41JCT-EURO cards in the server or expansion chassis:

One card

Unterminated (the default configuration).

Two or more cards

Install the shunt on the JP2 jumper of a card to terminate the CT bus (H.100 signal) at that card. Terminate only the first and last cards on the CT bus cable.



Intel Dialogic D/120JCT-LS and D/120JCT-Euro

The D/120JCT-LS and D/120JCT-Euro voice cards each provide 12 channels of call-processing and loop-start interfaces in a single PCI slot. The D/120JCT-LS is used in North America, South America, and Japan, and the D/120JCT-Euro is used in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The cards connect 12 analog loop-start phone lines to 12 onboard call-processing resources by using RJ-14 connectors.

We recommend using the newer Revision 2 Universal (3.3Vdc or 5Vdc dual voltage) PCI versions of the Intel Dialogic D/120JCT-LS and the D/120JCT-Euro cards, rather than the older single-bus voltage (5Vdc) versions of the cards.

Note that older Revision 1 LS cards are still supported for use with Cisco Unity version 4.0(x), but they cannot be ordered for new Cisco Unity version 4.0(x) installations. In addition, the older LS cards can be used only when they are appropriate for the available slots in the Cisco Unity server or expansion chassis.

If you are installing cards that have H.100 connectors, you need an H.100 cable that has at least as many connectors as you have cards (you must connect all cards by using a single cable) but no more than five extra connectors.

You may need to attach or remove the slot retainer bracket that ships with the card, depending on the mechanical configuration of the Cisco Unity server or expansion chassis.

Intel NetStructure PBX-IP Media Gateway (PIMG)

The Intel NetStructure PBX-IP Media Gateway (PIMG) units each connect to eight ports from a circuit-switched phone system (either analog or digital phone lines, depending on the model of the PIMG unit). The PIMG units communicate with the Cisco Unity server through the LAN by using Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

The lines from the phone system attach to a PIMG unit with RJ-45 connectors, though it is possible to use RJ-11 connectors on these lines instead.

Figure A-13 PIMG Unit Connection Pinout and Port Connections

We recommend that the lines connect to the ports on the PIMG units in the same order as the ports on the phone system. For example, the first phone system port connects to the first port on the PIMG unit, the second phone system port connects to the second port on the PIMG unit, and so on.

Software Settings

Instructions for configuring PIMG units for integrating a phone system with Cisco Unity are found in the applicable Cisco Unity integration guide, available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html.
