What is the network topology in the hotel?
Nowadays, most of hotels support the Internet service for customers. Some hotels provide the service for
free, while others charge users for service. Normally, the hotel’s Internet service topology includes a
broadband modem, subscriber gateway, managed switches, and an in-room solution. The diagram below
displays a typical topology for a hotel DSL network.

How to integrate the VSG-1200, ES-3024 and VLC1124L
Here, we will guide you to configure the VSG-1200, ES-3024 and VLC1124L step by step. You can refer
these procedures to finish the environment easily, and provide the Internet service to your customer.
Before You Begin
Before you begin installation, it’s important to understand how the equipment is designed to work and
how it should be installed.
Why VDSL?
VDSL stands for Very fast Digital Subscriber Line. It is a form of DSL that allows for traffic throughput of
up to 15Mbps.
Although this is not as fast as the speed of Ethernet, which is usually 100Mbps and now available up to
1000Mbps, it can travel farther. Ethernet is limited to a maximum cable length of about 300 feet, whereas
VDSL can transmit on cable lengths up to about 4500 feet.
Like ADSL, VDSL allows use of voice and data on the same 2-conductor line. This means that a hotel
can leverage their existing cable infrastructure to provide guests with high-speed Internet, without the
additional cost of installing new wiring. Each room only needs a single pair of wire for both voice and
high-speed data.
Unlike ADSL, all configurations to the remote modems are done from the VDSL switch. This means that
there is less time spent configuring units, and fewer chances for miss-configuration. Customers also
cannot accidentally change the settings on the modem, since the VDSL switch programs the modem itself.
VDSL basics
To install VDSL, you must have two pieces of equipment:
A VDSL concentrator, also known as a VDSL Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer
(DSLAM) or VDSL Central Office Equipment (COE)
A VDSL modem, also known as a VDSL Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)
The DSLAM is normally mounted inside a telephone closet, along with the hotel’s existing telephone PBX.
In each room, a VDSL modem is installed to which customers connect their computers via Ethernet port.
The DSLAM has two primary components in and of itself: a Splitter Chassis, and a Line Card Chassis.
Each component has a separate purpose and is needed for proper installation.
The splitter chassis contains splitter cards. Each splitter card has three Telco-50 ports, two in the rear,
and one in the front. One rear port acts as the input from the telephone PBX, while the other is the output
port which carries the voice/ data signal to the telephone room’s punchboard and, ultimately, to the
modem in each room. The front port connects directly to the line card in the Line Card Chassis.
1/05/05
Page 4 of 23
VDSL Hospitality 100+ Rooms Setup Guide
The Line Card Chassis contains one line card for each splitter card in the Splitter Chassis. VDSL line
cards (in this case VLC1124 cards) are installed into the chassis. The cards have two inputs, on Telco-50
port, and one Ethernet Uplink port. The Telco-50 port connects directly to the front of the corresponding
splitter card, and acts as an input and output for voice and data service. The Uplink port connects to an
Ethernet switch (usually a managed switch like an ES-3024 for VLAN purposes), and acts as the data
relay to the Internet.
Cards are hot-swappable, allowing for quick change-out without service disruption for users connected to
other cards. Each splitter card/ line card combo supports up to 24 ports, or modems.
In each room a VDSL modem is placed. The modem has an input from the wall outlet, and two outputs:
one phone port for an analogue telephone, and an Ethernet port for a computer connection. Because all
of the parameters are programmed in the line card, the modem has no settings to configure.
Installation
Telephone closet preparation
One of the trickiest parts with setting up a VDSL network is integrating it with the existing telephone
service. Although the ISP will usually take care of installing the Internet connection where you need it,
they will not help you install it with your in-building DSL solution.
Typically the telephone company providing the building’s voice service will contract installers to set up
and maintain in-building voice equipment and PBXs. Therefore, you will probably need to contact your
telephone company to have the contractor help install the necessary connectors for your voice service, if
they are not already present.
The input and output for all ZyXEL DSL DSLAM equipment is a standard Telco-50 connector. These
connectors are trapezoidal in appearance and contain 50 pins, which are paired up to provide the
necessary pair to each user or room. The contractor will need to terminate all connections coming from
the PBX to Telco-50 connectors in order for them to be properly connected to your VES equipment. Also,
the connections going to each room will also need to be terminated with Telco-50 connectors.
Typically, all of the PBX and room lines will be connected to a Main Distribution Frame (MDF) inside of
the telco closet. The MDF usually consists of two parts: an upper block for the incoming lines, and a
lower block for outgoing lines to users. These may or may not already be terminated into Teclo-50
connectors. Your Teclo-50 connectors will most likely be installed into this MDF. When wiring these
Telco-50 connectors, it is important that they be wired for the correct pin-outs, as explained below.
Proper Pin-Outs
The pin-outs for the Telco-50 connectors will depend on the VES equipment being used. Here is an
example pin-out from the VES-2500 DSLAM:
1/05/05
Page 5 of 23
VDSL Hospitality 100+ Rooms Setup Guide
Pin-outs are located in the Appendix section of your unit’s User’s Guide. Please be sure to have the
contractor refer to these when installing your Telco-50 connectors; otherwise, your VES installation will
not work properly.
For more information on with connectors apply to the PBX and to room connections, please read the next
section.
Connecting everything together
Once you have the proper Telco-50 Connectors in place, and the Internet connection has been installed,
you should be ready to connect your equipment.
1. First you should connect your modem to your internet connection (cable, DSL, T1, T3, etc.) if the
ISP has not already done so. If you require assistance in doing this, contact your ISP for further
help.
2. Once the modem is installed, connect your VSG-1200 to the modem via Ethernet cable. From
the LAN ports of the VSG, you will need to connect your ES-3024 managed switch via another
Ethernet cable. You may also connect management and employee computers to the other LAN
ports on the VSG per your preference.
3. From the ES-3024, you will connect your VES-2500 line cards. Each line card will have its own
Uplink port, which will need to be connected to one of the ports on the ES-3024 via Ethernet
cables.
4. Next, you will need to connect the telephone lines to the VES-2500. The Telco-50 connectors for
the VES-2500 can be confusing. In order for a successful installation, you’ll need the VES-2500
main chassis and the VES-2500 splitter chassis. Each line card of the VES-2500 will support up
to 24 lines or users. You will also need a splitter card for each line card used. Line cards are
installed into the main chassis, and splitter cards are installed into the splitter chassis.
5. Once the line cards and splitter cards are installed into their chassis, you’re ready to connect your
Teclo-50 cables. First, connect the VDSL port on the line card to the VDSL port in the splitter
card via Telco-50 patch cables, which have a male Telco-50 connector on each end.
6. On the back of the splitter chassis there are two Telco-50 ports for each splitter card. The once
marked “CO” will be the incoming voice lines from the building’s PBX. The once marked “USER”
is the outbound port for the lines going to each room. Below is a basic diagram of you the voice
service is connected through the splitter chassis’s rear connectors.

Customer Rooms
7. Once you connect the rooms to the VES-2500 via the Telco-50 cables, each room’s telephone
port should be ready for modem installation. Install a Prestige 841 VDSL modem in each room
by connecting the unit’s “VDSL” port to the room’s telephone wall jack. You can then connect the
room’s phone to the “Phone” port on the back of the P841 for voice service. You should then
connect small length of Ethernet cable to each modem’s “LAN 10/100M” port for the customer’s
computer use. This way the P841 can split voice and data traffic, allowing room customers to use
the phone and Internet simultaneously.
8. Remember that all of your components will require their own power connection for operation, to
include each P841 modem in each room. Each unit will be supplied with the appropriate cables
or power adapters. Please ensure all units are powered on when in use.
9. If you are using a Property Management System (PMS) to track customer room charges, you
may want to connect this to the PMS port of the VSG-1200 as well. Although this document does
not describe how to set up the VSG-1200 for use with a PMS, you can find more information
about this in the VSG-1200 User’s Guide.
Be sure to use the diagram on page 3 as a basic reference for installation.
You should now be ready to configure your VSG-1200, ES-3024, and VES-2500 for use. For more
information about hardware installation, we strongly urge you to review the User’s Guides for the VSG1200, ES-3024, and VES-2500.

accounts. For the three-button printer, you can associate a different profile to each button,
for a total of three profiles. Username and password are created randomly.
• Dynamic Account Operator – You can create a separate admin login for Account
Operators that only have access to the Dynamic Account Operator page. There are three
buttons on this page that are associated to the first three billing profiles. To create a
corresponding account similar to using the thermal printer, click the button and then print
out the following pop-up page for account login info.
• Static Account Generation – You can create a range of static accounts by specifying the
pre-fix, range and post-fix for the username. The passwords are created randomly for all
accounts. You can also manually enter static accounts with the usernames and
passwords of your choice.

3. For the rest of this page, you don’t need set any parameters. Click on Apply at the bottom of
the page to save this setting. If you are interested, refer to the User’s Guide for further
information on additional settings.
4. From the main menu, go to “Advanced Application >> VLAN”.
5. Please choose “Port Isolation” in the Preset Value field. This table setting means the each
Ethernet port cannot transmit data with others, keeping guests from snooping onto other
guests’ computers.
6. Please note on this menu there is also a “CPU” row. This row gives ES-3024 access rights to
the corresponding ports. Depending on your setup, you may want to have only certain ports
selected to administer the switch. DO NOT UNSELECT the switch port connected to the
VSG-1200.
Enable Broadcast Storm Control
Broadcast Storm Control is a mechanism within the switch that keeps any given port from
flooding the switch with too many data packets. This mechanism is used primarily when one or
more switches are looped together (to keep redundant traffic from being re-broadcasted), but can
also be useful if a hacker or virus attempts to deny service to network users by overloading the
network with traffic.
