This preface discusses the objectives, audience, organization, and conventions of this hardware configuration guide.
This publication describes the Cisco Voice Gateway 200 (VG200) hardware and will step you through the initial site preparation and installation of the gateway. Troubleshooting, maintenance procedures, and cable specifications are also provided.
Although this document provides minimum software configuration information, it is not meant as a set of comprehensive gateway configuration instructions. For detailed software configuration information, refer to the Cisco IOS configuration guide and command reference publications. These publications are available on the Documentation CD-ROM that came with your gateway, or you can order printed copies. See the "Documentation CD-ROM" section.
This publication is designed for the person installing the gateway, who should be familiar with electronic circuitry and wiring practices and have experience as an electronic or electromechanical technician.
The major sections of this hardware configuration guide are as follows:
This publication uses the following conventions to convey instructions and information:
For service and support for a gateway purchased from a reseller, contact the reseller. Resellers offer a wide variety of Cisco service and support programs, which are described in the information packet that shipped with your gateway.
For service and support for a gateway purchased directly from Cisco, use CCO.
