Abstract: This document explains how to connect the Mediatrix
1204 to Quadro4x/16x and configure both devices so
that the Mediatrix FXO ports can be used as
additional Quadro FXO ports.

Increasing Quadro FXO Capability with Mediatrix
1 Introduction
The Mediatrix 1204 is an analogue gateway that allows connectivity between the PSTN and a VoIP
network. The device can be used with the Quadro4x/16x to emulate additional FXO ports.
This document describes how to configure the Quadro with the Mediatrix 1204 to increase Quadro FXO
capability.
For the detailed information on how to install and use the Mediatrix refer to the Mediatrix 1204
Administration Manual.
For the detailed information on how to install and use the Quadro refer to Manual II: Administrator’s
Guide for Quadro4x, Quadro4xi, Quadro16x and Quadro16xi.
2 Prerequisites
•
•
•
•
•
The Quadro is connected to the network and all network settings are done without any issues.
The Mediatrix 1204 is connected to the LAN socket of the Quadro via a straight-through Cat 5
cable with a RJ 45 connector.
FXO lines of the Quadro and Mediatrix are connected to telephone lines.
SOHO-SW 3.0.5 or later image running on the Quadro.
4.4.13.88 or later software image or later image running on the Mediatrix 1204.
3 Configuration
This section presents step-by-step instructions on both the Quadro and Mediatrix setups.
3.1 Quadro Setup
3.1.1 DHCP Server Configuration
The Mediatrix 1204 has to have an IP address to identify itself in the Quadro LAN. This IP address can
be assigned to it manually or dynamically via the Quadro’s DHCP server. A simpler way from the
configuration perspective is to dynamically get an IP address from the Quadro. This requires
configuration of the Quadro as a DHCP server and the Mediatrix as a DHCP client. So the first step is to
configure the Quadro as a DHCP server for its LAN interface:
1. Login to the Quadro as an administrator and select DHCP Settings for the LAN Interface
from the LAN services menu.
2. Make sure the Enable DHCP Server checkbox is selected and the IP Address Range is
configured (see Figure 1: Enabling the DHCP server on the Quadro).

3.1.2 Call Routing Configuration
To be able to make outgoing PSTN calls from the phones connected to the Quadro using Mediatrix FXO
ports, you need to define a new routing rule in the Local Routing Table.
1. From the Telephony menu select the Call Routing item and click on the Local Routing Table.
The Call Routing - Local Routing page is displayed (Figure 2 The local routing table).

2. Click the Add button to go through Local Call Routing Wizard and set the parameters for the
rule to be created.
3. On the first page of the Local Call Routing Wizard fill in
and
•
the Pattern and Number of Discarded Symbols fields with the same values as you have
for the Quadro PSTN access rule;
•
the Prefix field with the symbol “p”. This value prompts the Mediatrix to provide dial tone
when user dials 9#;
•
set the CallType parameter to “IP”.
You may omit the other fields blank or fill with the values you find necessary (for the
descriptions of those parameters refer to Manual II: Administrator’s Guide for Quadro4x,
Quadro4xi, Quadro16x and Quadro16xi).
Figure 3: Local Call Routing Wizard - page 1
4. On the next page of the Local Call Routing Wizard fill in
•
the Destination IP Address and Destination Port with Mediatrix IP address and port
number (172.30.241.100 in the considered example). You may leave the Destination
Port field empty if the Mediatrix uses 5060 port number (this is the default port number
used on the Quadro).
•
Set the Fail Reason to “Any” and click Next.

5. The last page of the wizard gives the summary of the rule to be created (Figure 5 Local Call
Routing Wizard - page 3). Press Finish to create the rule with the specified properties. The
newly created rule is added to the Local Routing Table (Figure record number 9).

How this record works: If the user dials 9 followed by a PSTN number (or 9+ # + PSTN number) and
no free FXO line is available on the Quadro (they are either in use or disabled), the call will go through
a Mediatrix FXO port.

3.2 Mediatrix 1204 Setup
The configuration steps to be executed on the Mediatrix include:
1. Configuring the Mediatrix as a DHCP client
2. Local port configuration
3. Setting the Mediatrix Proxy Server
4. Redirecting Incoming Calls to Quadro
3.2.1 Configuring the Mediarix as a DHCP Client
1. On the main page of the Mediatrix GUI (Figure 7 The main page of the Mediatrix GUI) right click
the Administration tab and select Edit (Figure 8). This opens the Adminstration dialog box
enabling you to modify IP configuration settings.

Quadro (Figure 15).
3. In the corresponding cell of the Automatic call address column enter the Quadro extension the
call is to be redirected to. (In Figure 15 calls to FXO ports 1-3 are redirected o Quadro Auto
Attendant, calls to port 4 to Quadro extension 24).

4 Restrictions with additional FXO lines
•
•
•
•
•
•
Calls to emulated FXO lines cannot be routed to Routing table.
The hold music is not played to PSTN callers.
PSTN callers cannot be called back with the feature code *2.
All FXO calls have SIP call type in the Call Statistics pages.
When specifying the settings of Caller ID-based supplementary services (speed calling, many
extension ringing, hot line, call forwarding etc.), the call type have to be set to SIP instead of
PSTN.
There is no way to select an FXO line for outgoing calls. All calls go through pool mode.
