I am new to this product i need to know what are the basic steps for PGW2200 to configure with AS5350 where AS5350 will be connected to SS7 network for F-link.
Also from where i can get Cisco Media Gateway Controller Software.
also can any one tell me how to monitor PGW220 is their any GUI tool avalbe for easy configuration & monitoring .
Cisco Media Gateway Controller Software is available at Cisco.com.
PGW is a Solaris based software and can operate as you required.
this software can be bought from Cisco partners but I should advise that is not a trivial installation and operation software.
there is some tools that help you to manage it, like the VTSP but MML (commands like old DOS) is better in my view.
give a look at this page because you also need to decide if you will use it in signaling controller or call controller mode:
thanks daniel , what i need was what will be the basic steps needed to make flink up as i find so many detail configuration documents which had made me confused so if you can sipmplfy for me what will the basic configuration on PGW2200 & As5350 to make my network work . also if i provide remote sun server will you or any one can help to install & configure PGW2200 remotely ( with cost ) .
it's not that I don't want to give you the steps, but PGW is very complex in term of configuration. My suggestion to you is to first check if you have the minimum requirements for SS7 interconnection in your company: do you have a designated POint Code for example?
The following manual is very helpful about configuration:http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/pgw/9/provisioning/guide/prvgde.html
but I suggest that if you are not very familiar with this, you should get a Cisco Partner to assist you. PGW also depends on what region you are since SS7 have different "flavors" for interconnections in terms of protocol.
Unfortunatly we can't assist you directly but you can try companies like Promon / Logicallis in Latin America or like Dorotel in Miami.
thank for you guidness , only i needed was what basic step were required to make my cisco AS5350 up with one ss7 link as we use europoean standard here in pakistan i have knowledge of configuring AS5350 with ISDN & too some extend good familair with SS7 singnaling , never the less just need to know can PGW2200 be installed on pentuim machines with sun solaris OS on it .
I never saw PGW installed at Intel boxes with Solaris.
AS5350 will have 2 functions: SLT and Voice Gateway.
and on this for voice channels:
I know that this is a Cisco forum, but if this is only one or two E1s, did you consider about buy an SS7 to ISDN conversor?
Hi daniel ,
i got a document from cisco which says cisco 2651 XM routers support four F Link as SLT routers using VWIC-2MFT-E1 insert & drop card , just need to know will cisco 2621 XM router will work in place of 2651 XM router with Four SS7 Flink.
I don't believe it is recommended. can you find IOS with SLT option for the 2621?
based on documentation, just the 2611 and 2651:
