1.3 Product Description

Basic Features

2N® StarGate / BlueTower is a compact yet highly sophisticated system. It supports full remote supervision and configuration via web interface or using an external modem over a BRI-ISDN and analogue line, or over a B channel in a PRI-ISDN trunk. The system has been designed and works with a lot of highly sophisticated functions, which make it fully client-oriented and highly reliable in cooperation with both GSM networks and ISDN. In addition, it provides full monitoring and comfortable (web interface) configuration without functional limitations. Configuration alterations can be made without resetting, i.e. under full operation. Hot-swappable plug-in GSM/UMTS boards, which can be swapped under full operation including SIM cards, are a matter of course. The use of up to eight SIM cards per GSM/UMTS module in combination with an intelligent SIM card switching tool and detailed statistics upgrade this system into a

powerful LCR tool. There is also support of remote SIM cards (2N® SIM Star) and an

external LCR machine (2N® External Routing Machine). High product stability is achieved by the fact that the gateway is programmed in the ASM, i.e. an OS-FREE system. The system also features easy installation, simple operation and easy replacement of defective parts as it is composed of plug-in boards that communicate independently along system buses. As already mentioned, the system allows for an easy detection of defective parts, automatic locking against use and easy replacement (hot-swap). Thanks to the above-mentioned properties, the system can be installed and configured successfully within one hour!

PRI Board

Board Description

The PRI board contains one or two (depends on the part number) ISDN interfaces and PCM bus timing circuits. PRI 1 is designed as an internal interface (with an activated LCR function) and PRI 2 as an external interface (all calls from the port are always routed to PRI 1). The interface can work in the MASTER or SLAVE mode (set the PRI 1 mode using the web interface and PRI 2 has always the opposite mode). The output can be configured as TERMINAL (TE) or NETWORK (NT) by jumpers (switching of wires

– for software switch you have to use the web interface!). The settings of these jumpers HAVE TO match the PRI configuration – two NT and TE modes will cause malfunction of the PRI board or back-up connection* ! The board is designed on a 4-layer PCB of the size of 160x100mm. There are also 5 (or 8 in 2ISDN PRI) board status indicators, which are located on the front panel.

The PRI board contains four switches (can be deactivated by jumpers), which provide hardware connection between PRI 1 and PRI 2 in case the system is switched off or inoperative.

6.Physical RJ-45 connectors for ISDN PRI 1 and PRI 2 interfaces. Before you plug in your ISDN connection please check whether the wiring configuration matches the ISDN connection requirements!

Tip

The LED statuses provide basic information on the ISDN interface only. For details on the ISDN interface state refer to the web interface.

Configuration Jumpers

There are three configuration jumper blocks on the PRI board. JP2 and JP3 are used for hardware switching of the ISDN PRI connector into the TE/NT configuration. This operation means only swapping of the transmitting and receiving connector pairs, the

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz

36

interface configuration must be made using the web interface. With jumper JP4 you can activate/deactivate the back-up connection between PRI 1 and PRI 2 in case the system is switched off or the PRI board is not handled by system.

Warning

The back-up connection (JP4) works only in case the wire settings of PRI 1 (JP3) and PRI 2 (JP2) are set in the opposite way (e.g. PRI 1 as NT, PRI 2 as TE).

Note

Boards with just one PRI interface (1PRI boards) have the same settings as the PRI 1 interface on 2PRI boards. And there is no back-up connection (JP4) either.

Example of Connection with 2ISDN PRI Board

Warning

The ISDN port mode (TE or NT) and synchronisation type (Master/Slave) must be different on the PBX (PSTN) and on the gateway. The TEI number must have the same value (default = 0).

VoIP Board

Board Description

The VoIP board contains a digital signalling processor (DSP), 4x10/100BaseT Ethernet switch and a small carrier board with the licence chip. The main board is designed on a 6-layer PCB of the size of 160x100mm. Two board status LED indicators are located on the front panel. Configuration (e.g. used voice codecs, IP setting) is completely managed by the main CPU and made via a standard web interface. There is no fixed memory (EEPROM) for the VoIP card firmware. The firmware is saved on the basic CPU and uploaded to the VoIP card upon every VoIP card start/restart.

1. PWR – board supply indication

Shining: Switched on

Flashing: Board in the sleep mode 2. INIT – board initialisation indication

Shining for two minutes: Firmware uploading and configuration in progress

Continuous shining: Board initialisation failure

Light off: Board initialised successfully

3. Four RJ45 connectors of the internal 10/100BaseT Ethernet switch

The VoIP board is designed as a media gateway. It works only with media packets (RTP); signalling packets (SIP) must be routed to the basic CPU IP address.

Tip

You have to restart the VoIP card upon any VoIP configuration change.

2N® TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s., www.2n.cz

39

Caution

For a successful VoIP card initialisation, the VoIP board MAC address has to be filled in correctly and the basic CPU must be switched to the VoIP-SIP mode and contain the VoIP firmware file.

The integrated Ethernet will not work until the VoIP card has been initialised successfully.

Configuration Jumpers

There are no configuration jumpers on the VoIP card.
