Cisco AS5800 Voice over IP Feature Card Installation and Configuration


Introduction

The Cisco AS5800 voice over IP feature card is a multi-DSP co-processing board and software package that adds voice over IP capabilities to the Cisco AS5800 platform. The AS5800 voice over IP feature card when used with other existing feature cards such as LAN/WAN and modem cards provides a gateway for up to 192 packetized voice/fax calls and 360 data calls per card. A Cisco AS5800 can support up to 1344 voice calls.


Note   The Cisco AS5800 must be running in split dial shelf configuration with two 7206VXR router shelves for maximum performance. Refer to Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Split Dial Shelf Installation and Configuration (Document number 78-6289-01) for split dial shelf configuration information.


The AS5800 voice over IP feature card resides on the dial shelf of the Cisco AS5800 platform. The on-board DSPs (Digital Signal Processors) provide the signal processing functionality to convert voice/fax information into digitized packets. The DSPs are mounted on 16 daughter cards (DSPM).

The dial shelf (DS) communicates with the voice applications on the router shelf (RS) via NIP (Nitro Interconnect Protocol) which provides both reliable and unreliable data transfer over the Backplane InterConnect Fast Ethernet.

The Cisco AS5800 voice over IP feature card can be used in many applications such as:

Toll bypass

Remote PBX presence over WANs

Unified voice/data trunking

POTS-internet phone gateway.

The Cisco AS5800 voice over IP feature card supports multiple voice codecs, fax protocols, and H.323 call signalling and gatekeeper. The Cisco AS5800 voice over IP feature card supports the following signalling protocols:

T1 PRI

T1 RBS

E1 PRI

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.

Safety with Electricity


Warning   

Read the installation instructions before you connect the system to its power source.



Warning   

Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national laws and regulations.


Warning   

Before working on a chassis or working near power supplies, unplug the power cord on AC units; disconnect the power at the circuit breaker on DC units.


Warning   

To ensure your safety and the safety of others, be sure the power is OFF and the power cord is unplugged before working on the router.



Warning   

Before working on equipment that is connected to power lines, remove jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects will heat up when connected to power and ground and can cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the terminals.


Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity:

Locate the emergency power-OFF switch in the room in which you are working. Then, if an electrical accident occurs, you can quickly shut the power OFF.

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).

Required Tools

To install or remove the VoIP feature card and the DSP modules, you will need the following tools and equipment, which are not included:

ESD (electro-static discharge) preventive wrist strap

ESD preventive mat

Antistatic bag (optional)

Installing the VoIP Card

Perform the following procedure to install the voice over IP feature card.


Note   The voice over IP feature card should not be installed in slot 0 or slot 1. Installing voice over IP feature cards in slots 0 or 1 may degrade performance.



Step 1 Ensure your ESD-preventive wrist strap is attached between you and an unpainted chassis surface.


Caution   
To prevent ESD damage, handle voice over IP feature cards by ejector levers and carrier edges only, and use an ESD-preventive wrist strap or other grounding device.

Step 2 Carefully align the voice over IP feature card carrier guides with the top and bottom grooves in the dial shelf slot. Avoid touching the circuitry or any connector pins.

Step 3 Slide the voice over IP feature card into the slot until the ejector levers make contact with the chassis frame.

Step 4 Seat the voice over IP feature card in the backplane by pushing the card firmly until the ejector levers fold in toward the voice over IP feature card front panel, and the front panel is flush with the chassis frame.


Caution   
Always use the ejector levers to disengage or seat voice over IP feature cards in the backplane. Failure to do so can cause erroneous system error messages indicating a card failure; however, do not use the ejector levers to lift or support the weight of the cards.

Step 5 Tighten the panel fasteners using a Number 2 Phillips screwdriver. This secures the backplane connection and ensures proper EMI shielding.


Caution   
Always tighten the panel fasteners on voice over IP feature cards. These fasteners prevent accidental removal and provide proper grounding for the system.

Step 6 Install a blank filler card (DS58-BLANK=) in all empty card slots to keep the chassis dust free and maintain proper airflow.

Removing the VoIP Card

To remove the VoIP card, follow the steps below:


Step 1 Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unpainted chassis surface.


Caution   
To prevent ESD damage, handle voice over IP feature cards by ejector levers and carrier edges only, and use an ESD-preventive wrist strap or other grounding device.

Step 2 Loosen the panel fasteners at the top and bottom of the voice over IP feature card front panel using a number 2 Phillips screwdriver.

Step 3 Pull either the top or bottom ejector lever away from the voice over IP feature card front panel to disengage the voice over IP feature card from the backplane connector.


Caution   
Always use the ejector levers to disengage or seat voice over IP feature cards in the backplane. Failure to do so can cause erroneous system error messages indicating a card failure; however, do not use the ejector levers to lift or support the weight of the cards.


Caution   
High performance devices on the VoIP card can get hot during operation. Exercise caution when you remove the VoIP card during operation.

Step 4 Grasp the ejector levers and pull the voice over IP feature card partially from the dial shelf slot until you can grasp the voice over IP feature card front panel with one hand. Place your other hand under the voice over IP feature card to balance the weight of the card as you pull it from the slot, as shown in .

Figure 3 Removing a voice over IP feature card

Step 5 Pull the voice over IP feature card straight out of the slot. Avoid touching the circuitry or any connector pins.

Step 6 Place the removed voice over IP feature card on an antistatic mat or foam pad until you are ready to reinstall it in the chassis. If you plan to return the card to the factory, place it in an antistatic bag.
