1.4 Installation Requirements and
Recommendations
Before installing a Mobility Router, follow these requirements and recommendations.
1.4.1 Installation Location Guidelines
The Mobility Router should be installed in an environment sufficient for normal operation of network appliances
(50-95°F). Make sure that the area allows for enough ventilation after the Mobility Router is installed. The
appliance should be installed in an area that does not exceed the following humidity range: 8-90%
non-condensing.
1.4.2 Rack Requirements
The Mobility Router must be installed in a standard 19-inch rack. Make sure that the Mobility Router is installed in
the rack so that the Mobility Router is level in the rack and is fastened by screws on both sides. Refer to “Installing
the Mobility Router” on page 6 for installation instructions.
1.4.3 Required Equipment for Installation
The following equipment is required for rack installation (and depends on the type of rack):

Mounting screws to rack mount the Mobility Router (not provided)

Screwdriver (not provided)
1.4.4 Uninterruptible Power Supply
We recommend installing the Mobility Router in an existing Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) infrastructure.

Connecting to the Network
1.6
1
Connecting to the Network
Connect the Mobility Router to a network device, such as a switch, using the straight-through Ethernet cable
provided with the Mobility Router.
To connect the Mobility Router to the network:
1
Insert one end of the Ethernet cable to the network device.
2
Insert the other end of the Ethernet cable to the left Ethernet port (ETH0) on the rear of the Mobility Router.
NOTE If using the Secure Remote Voice feature, connect the second Ethernet port (ETH1) to the external
network.

Connecting to the Console Port
Connecting to the Console Port
The Mobility Router uses a serial console port to provide a direct connection to the command-line interface (CLI)
Wizard for initial configuration the Mobility Router. After completing the initial configuration, access to the
console port is no longer necessary.
To initially configure the Mobility Router, connect the management PC or laptop to the serial console port of the
Mobility Router. If there is no serial port, use a 9-pin serial to USB adapter to connect to the serial cable.
To connect the PC or laptop to the serial console port:
1
Insert one end of the serial cable into the PC or laptop serial port.
2
Insert the other end of the cable into the serial console port of the Mobility Router.
Figure 1-6. Connecting to the Serial Console Port

On the PC or laptop, start terminal emulation software (such as Microsoft HyperTerminal) and select the
appropriate COM port.
4
Configure the port using the following settings:

Baud rate: 9600 bps

Data bits: 8

Parity: None

Stop bits: 1

Flow control: None
