What is a VoIP Gateway?

A VoIP gateway is a device that uses Internet Protocols to transmit and receive voice communications. 
A VoIP Gateway is used to convert voice and fax calls, in real-time, between the traditional network (PSTN) and an IP network. Traffic coming in from the traditional network (PSTN) is fed through a VoIP gateway and converted to digital packets and sent to the IP network.

How to Use a VoIP Gateway?

VoIP gateways have been designed with different purposes, basically come in two types: Analog and Digital. 
Analog gateways

  • Connect the VoIP phone system to the Analog Phones (Traditional)
  • Connect the VoIP phone system to the traditional telephone networks (PSTN).

Digital gateways

  • Connect a VoIP phone system to The Digital voice lines 
  • Connect a PABX phone system (traditional) to an VoIP network.

How to access the web configuration?

  • HX4E/MX8A/HX4G/MX8G Gateways start DHCP service by default, and automatically obtain an IP address on the LAN; you can use the factory-default gateway IP address if it is unable to be obtained (e.g. when connected directly with a computer).
  • By default, the MX60E/MX120G uses a static IP address.

Enter the gateway IP address and verification code (case-insensitive) in the browser address bar  (e.g. 192.168.1.203). You can enter the gateway configuration login interface by entering a password on the login interface:

  • User = Admin
  • Passwords = hx4
  • Random code = i4Jt
  • Finish = Login
  • The administrator is allowed to browse and modify any configuration parameter and modify login passwords. After login, “Admin” is displayed on the upper left corner of the interface.
  • The operator is allowed to browse a subset of the configuration parameters. After login, “Operator” is displayed on the upper left corner of the interface.

Setup Guidelines

After login, click Basic >Network to open the configuration interface.

 

.Example:

Click Basic > SIP to open the configuration interface.

 

**Use Cases:
  1. The B3’s customers want to keep using their PSTN number.
  2. The User from a traditional PBX wants to connect with B3’s extension.
 
**Solutions:
  • Customer is able to continue using their existing traditional PBX investments while adding new extensions in Cloud PBX to support mobility, call center and other business use cases.
  • Both the traditional PBX and Cloud extensions can inter-operate and call each other seamlessly via extension numbers with no call charges.
  • Calls from Cloud to the traditional PBX will show the exact caller ID. 
  • Calls from the traditional PBX to Cloud can only show 1 caller ID.

**Configuration:
 
1. Trunk Configuration – Phone Number:
After login, click Trunk > Phone number to open the configuration interface.
 
Example:

After login, click Routing > Routing Table to open the configuration interface
 
Format of routing rules:
This means that calls from IP side with Calling Party Number 151,152,153,154 are routed to FXO1, FXO2, FXO3, FXO4.
 
All calls from FXO are routed to IP (Cloud PBX):
  • CPN must be the traditional PBX Extension Number.
  • Each CPN / Extension Number must be mapped to 1 FXO Port.
    • Calling Party Number = Caller Number 
    • Called Party Number =  Destination Number

5. Advanced Configuration – SIP Setting
After login, click Advanced > SIP to open this interface.
NOTE: The other configuration should be used by default
 
Example:
**Use Cases:
  • When customers have many Analog phones and they don’t want to leave them
 
**Solutions:
  • Customer is able to continue using their existing traditional Analog phone while adding new extensions in Cloud PBX to support mobility, call center and other business use cases.
  • Both the traditional Analog Phone extensions and Cloud extensions can inter-operate and call each other seamlessly via extension numbers with no call charges.

  • Calls from the traditional analog phone to Cloud will show the exact caller ID.

**Configuration:
 
1. Line Configuration – Batch Configuration
After login, click Line > Batch Configuration (Phone number) to open the configuration interface.
Example:
2.  Line Configuration – Configuration
After login, click Line > Configuration to open the configuration interface.

Format of routing rules:
This means that calls from the IP side with Called Party Number 101,102,103,104 are routed to FXS1, FXS2, FXS3, FXS4
 
All the call from the FXS port are routed to IP sip1.b3networks.com (Cloud PBX)
  • Called Party Number must be the traditional PBX Extension Number.
  • Each Called Party Number / Extension Number must be mapped to 1 FXS Port.
    • Calling Party Number = Caller Number 
    • Called Party Number =  Destination Number

After login, click Security > Access to open the configuration interface.
