Disconnect all power before doing the following:

Installing or removing a chassis

Working near power supplies

Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.

Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:

Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.

Turn OFF power to the system.

If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, determine the condition of the victim and then call for help.

Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions; then take appropriate action.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. It occurs when electronic printed circuit cards are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures. Always follow ESD prevention procedures when removing and replacing cards. Ensure that the chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact. Connect the clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and cord must operate effectively. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the chassis.


Caution   
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).

General Safety Recommendations

Follow these guidelines to ensure general safety:

Keep the chassis area clear and dust-free during and after installation.

Put the removed chassis cover in a safe place.

Keep tools away from walk areas where you or others could fall over them.

Do not wear loose clothing that could get caught in the chassis. Fasten your tie or scarf and roll up your sleeves.

Wear safety glasses when working under any conditions that might be hazardous to your eyes.

Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the equipment unsafe.

Preparing to Configure the Software for Voice

Before you can configure your Cisco AS5300 to use VoIP, you must first complete the tasks listed below. If your Cisco AS5300 is already configured to use VoIP, you can skip this section.

To configure your Cisco AS5300 to use VoIP:

Establish a working IP network. For more information about configuring IP, refer to the "IP Overview," "Configuring IP Addressing," and "Configuring IP Services" chapters in the Network Protocols Configuration Guide, Part 1.

Complete basic configuration for the Cisco AS5300. This includes, as a minimum, the following tasks:

Configure a host name and password for the Cisco AS5300.

Configure Ethernet 10BaseT/100BaseT interface of your Cisco AS5300 so that it is recognized as a device on the Ethernet LAN.

Configure Cisco AS5300 interfaces for ISDN PRI lines.

Configure ISDN D channels for each ISDN PRI line.

For more information about these configuration tasks, refer to the Cisco AS5300 Universal Access Server Software Configuration Guide.

Install the VoIP card (VFC) into the appropriate slot of your Cisco AS5300 access server. Each VFC can hold up to five digital signal processor modules, enabling processing for up to 30 B channels with single-density DSPs or 60 B channels with double-density DSPs.

Complete your company's dial plan.

Establish a working telephony network based on your company's dial plan.

Integrate your dial plan and telephony network into your existing IP network topology. Merging your IP and telephony networks depends on your particular IP and telephony network topology. In general, we recommend the following:

Use canonical numbers wherever possible. It is important to avoid situations where numbering systems are significantly different on different routers or access servers in your network.

Make routing and/or dialing transparent to the user by, for example, avoiding secondary dial tones from secondary switches, where possible.

Contact your PBX vendor for instructions on how to reconfigure the appropriate PBX interfaces.

Use TFTP to download the new VCWare to VFC Flash memory. In this example, slot 1 is chosen by default.

Note   The destination image name must begin with "vcw-" (all lowercase) and no other character can be in front of vcw-, so no directory path should be included at the beginning of the image name. Be absolutely certain to get the name right. If one character or space is wrong, the file will not be recognized and will not be copied over.
