FIG. 1 CSG SIP Communications Gateway (displayingCSG-544)

Overview

The CSG SIP Communications Gateway (FIG. 1) is a stand alone Private Branch Exchange (PBX) which runs a version of Asterisk. The CSG can function not only as a PBX, but also as VoIP ATA, or VoIP gateway. It has eight analog ports that can be configured (via modules) as Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) or Foreign Exchange Station (FXS) ports.

The CSG enables you to transform an intercom-enabledModero Touch Panel into afull-featuredIP phone. With the CSG and anintercom-enabledModero Touch Panel you can make and receive local, long distance, and international phone calls, and have access to phone features like call waiting, caller ID, call forwarding, call queuing, and voice mail. The CSG supports AMX Session Initiated Protocol(SIP)-enabledtouch panels, such as theMVP-8400i,NXD-1000Vi,andNXD-700Vi,as well as 3rd party IP phones.

Installing the Hardware

CAUTION!

To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger telecommunication wiring for network connections.

1.Connect an Ethernet cable to the Network port.

2.Connect the provided power supply to the unit’s DC connector. The unit immediately receives power once you connect a power source to it.

3.When the unit completes the boot process, the left-mosteight LEDs indicate how the analog ports are configured. A red light indicates the port is FXO, and a green light indicates the port is FXS. If the light for a port is off, the port is not installed.

Note: The analog port configuration is selected when you purchase your CSG unit.

WARNING!

If you are using the CSG-544,do NOT connect analog ports1-4to a phone line. Since both the FXS port and the phone line supply power, the hardware could sustain damage. This damage is not covered under the AMX standard warranty.

Instructions for Wall Mounting

1.Select the area to mount the CSG unit. The unit should be mounted at or below eye level to properly view the LEDs.

2.Line up one of the surface mounting brackets with the two holes on one side of the CSG. Install two #4-40X .250 PPH screws into the holes in the bracket to secure the bracket to the CSG.

3.Repeat step 2 to attach the second bracket to the other side of the unit.

4.Affix one screw to the wall. Leave approximately 1/4-inchof the screw protruding from the wall to allow the head of the screw to slide into the settings on the mounting bracket, mounting the unit to the wall.

5.Repeat step 4 to attach the second bracket to the wall.

Understanding the LEDs

There are 14 LEDs on the front panel of the CSG. The eight LEDs corresponding to the analog ports on the rear panel indicate the type of interface installed. The following table explains the definition of each LED and its color representation:
