Introduction
1.1 Equipment description
The coM.sat PCI GSM-Board is meant to serve as an interfacing tool for the GSMnetwork, that gets your software-based telephone system ready for GSM. The
coM.sat PCI GSM-Board is aligned with Linux OS and offers a kernel-independent
driver as well as a channel driver for Asterisk, already included in the scope of
supply. You will be able to benefit from all the advantages provided for by an IPconnection, maintaining utmost flexibility and profiting from low communication
cost.
Up to 4 GSM-Quadband-Channels, equipped with individual SIM-cards, will allow
you to consolidate your telecommunication activity between GSM, conventional
telephony and IP-telephony. According to the Motherboard available, up to 4
coM.sat PCI GSM-Boards can be integrated into a computer, which enables an
individual amplification of your existing telephone system to up to 16 GSMChannels. The Board has been designed for a fast building up of the call
connections and provides Digital Audio Quality (EFR/AMR). This enables the User
to benefit, on the highest possible technological standard, from all advantages
provided by the convergence of mobile and internet-based telephony.

1.4 Security advice for user
The users are explicitly requested to read and assimilate the item security advice
for users.
The following advices refer to the equipment coM.sat PCI GSM. As this equipment
uses components of the company Cinterion (Cellular Engines MC55i) also their
security advice as well as instruction manuals have to be considered. Visit
www.cinterion.com
1.4.1 Security in air traffic
The operation of Cellular-Engines in airplanes might affect their navigation
systems and interfere into the mobile telephone network. For this reason their use
has been legally restricted in air traffic. Therefore the coM.sat PCI GSM shall not
be operated on board of airplanes. Infractions against this directive might result in
a temporary or complete suspension of the Cellular-Engine services and/or legal
consequences.
1.4.2 Environment with explosive substances
The equipment coM.sat PCI GSM is not allowed to be operated in environments
with explosive substances. For this reason it is recommended that the user does
not operate the equipment in such areas, e.g. gas stations, fuel storage facilities,
chemical industry or while blasting operations are taking place. In case the usage
in one of these risk situations is necessary, it has to be guaranteed previously to
the beginning of operation, that no danger is given.
1.4.3 Security in road traffic
In case the equipment is operated within vehicles that are participating in public
road traffic, the individual restrictions for telephone usage within a vehicle of the
corresponding country where the vehicle is located in have to be observed.
1.4.4 Non-ionizing radiation
As for all kinds of radio transmitting equipment, the users are to be informed that
for a satisfactory operation of the equipment as well as for the security of the
operator it is highly recommended to operate the equipment only in the regular
operating position.
1.4.5 Electronics of medicinal equipments
The operation of radio transmitters, such as Cellular-Engines, may interfere into
the regular function of not correctly isolated medical instruments and equipment.
Please request specific information with the doctors or manufacturers of a medical
equipment in case needed.
1.4.6 Measures in case of loss / theft
In case the coM.sat PCI GSM, the Cellular Engines or the used SIM-cards are no
longer available due to loss or theft, please inform your provider immediately in
order to avoid eventual abuse or fraud.

1.4.7 Transportation
The packaging provided by deliverer when receiving the equipment does not
guarantee full protection against crushing and beating during transportation.
Therefore an additional packaging should be provided for further transportation. In
case the equipment was stored within a cold environment, it should slowly be
warmed up until it reaches ambient temperature, in order to avoid humidity
issues.
1.4.8 Installation location for equipment
The installation location for the equipment should avoid direct sunlight as well as
heat. Respecting of this directive will help increase the reliability of operation as
well as their durability, as the components have to endure less temperature
influences. The cabling for the equipment should be done in a way to avoid any
physical damage to the people who will be handling the systems. Network-cabling
should be separated from the cabling for signaling. The installation of the
equipment should only be done by adequately trained manpower.
1.4.9 Damage or repair
When noticing damages on the equipment or if it has been exposed to humidity,
further operation of it should be avoided due to security reasons. Repairs should
only be done by the manufacturer or through an authorized representation. In any
case the equipment shall be disconnected from power supply before any repair
work is initiated.

Getting the PCI Board into operation
To start operation of the coM.sat PCI GSM Board first you will have to insert the
SIM-cards and connect the antenna.
1. With a pen or a small screwdriver
press onto the yellow button to
eject the SIM-cardholder.
2. After ejection of the cardholder,
insert the SIM-cards.
Remark: The SIM-cards do only fit into the cardholer in one singular
position!
3. Replace the cardholder with the cards into its case. The SIM-cards have to
be face down when doing this. Make sure the cardholder is correctly positioned within its track.
4. Connect the antenna(s) to the antenna connection (s) by initially

Remark:
In case you are in possession of a 2-channel-version of the coM.sat PCI GSM
Board you will have to use one of the lower two SIM-card ports „1“ and „2“. Also
only one antenna will be necessary and it has to be connected to the connection
marked with„ ½“! In case you purchased the 4-channel version you can/will have
to use all 4 SIM-card ports. This will require the connection of a second antenna.
