Rack Mount Safety Instructions
When installing the chassis in a rack, implement the following safety
instructions:
• Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature: If installed in a closed or multiunit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack
environment may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore,
consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment
compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) of 45°C (113°F).
• Reduced Air Flow: Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that
the amount of air flow required for safe operation on the equipment is not
compromised.
• Mechanical Loading: Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such
that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
• Circuit Overloading: Consideration should be given to the connection of the
equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits
might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate
consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when
addressing this concern.
• Reliable Earthing: Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be
maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other
than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g., use of power strips.)
¾ To mount the device in a 19-inch rack:
1.

2.4.3
2. Installing the Device
Connecting to E1/T1 Trunks
The device supports up to two E1/T1 trunk interfaces, providing up to two RJ-48c ports.
When implementing two trunks, the device can support PSTN Fallback, allowing trunks to
connect to the PSTN during a power outage (i.e., no communication with the IP network).
The device also supports fractional E1/T1.
Warning: To protect against electrical shock and fire, use a 26 AWG min wire to
connect T1 or E1 ports to the PSTN.
¾ To connect the E1/T1 trunks:
1.
Connect the E1/T1 trunk cables to the device's RJ-48c ports.
2.
Connect the other ends of the trunk cables to your PBX/PSTN switch.
RJ-48c trunk connectors are wired according to the figure below.
Figure 2-7: RJ-48c Connector Pinouts for E1/T1
The digital trunks can also be connected in such a way as to support PSTN Fallback in
case of power outage, as described in the procedure below:
¾ To connect the digital trunk interfaces for PSTN Fallback:
„

19
February 2010
Mediant 600
2.4.4
Connecting E1/T1 Trunks for PSTN Fallback
The device offers a PSTN Fallback feature when provided with two E1/T1 PRI spans. The
digital module's Port II serves as a dedicated Fallback port connected to the PSTN. In the
event of a power failure (i.e., no Ethernet link), a relay connects ports I and II by the closing
of a metallic switch inside the module, re-routing trunk traffic from the PBX to the PSTN is
established (instead of from the PBX to the IP network).
Figure 2-8: PSTN Lifeline for PRI E1/T1
Notes:
2.4.5
•
Only ISDN supports the PSTN Fallback feature when the number of
supported channels (e.g., 30) is less than the maximum number of
possible channels provided by the physical ports (e.g., two E1 trunks).
When the number of supported channels (e.g., 60) equals the maximum
number of channels provided by the physical ports (e.g., two E1 trunks),
then other protocols such as CAS are also supported.
•
This PSTN Fallback feature has no relation to the PSTN Fallback
Software Upgrade Key.
Connecting to ISDN BRI Lines
The device can house up to two BRI modules, each supporting four BRI ports, thereby
providing a total of up to 8 BRI ports.
Note: BRI interface is applicable only to devices running the SIP protocol.
Warning: To protect against electrical shock and fire, use a 26 AWG min wire to
connect the BRI ports to the PSTN.
Installation Manual

Document #: LTRT-85605
Installation Manual
2. Installing the Device
¾ To connect the BRI ports:
1.
Connect the BRI cable to the device's BRI RJ-45 port.
2.
Connect the other end of the cable to your ISDN telephone or PBX/PSTN switch.
A BRI port can be configured either as TE (Termination Equipment/user side) or NT
(Network Termination/network side). The connector pinouts vary according to the
configuration, as detailed in the following figure:
Figure 2-9: RJ-45 Connector Pinouts for BRI Ports
When configured as NT, the BRI port drives a nominal voltage of 38 V with limited current
supply of up to 100 mA. The voltage is of Power Source 1 type (line voltage).
2.4.6
Connecting BRI Interfaces for PSTN Fallback
The PSTN Fallback feature provides a BRI interface connection to the PSTN upon a power
outage (i.e., Ethernet link failure). This allows a telephone or PBX connected to a BRI port
to continue making calls through the PSTN network (instead of through the IP network).
The PSTN Fallback is provided by connecting adjacent BRI ports, where one port is
connected to, for example, a PBX and its adjacent port is connected to an active PSTN line
(i.e., normal operation, not only dedicated to Fallback). In the event of a power failure, a
relay connects the adjacent BRI ports (i.e., ports I to II, and ports III to IIII) by the closing of
a metallic switch inside the module.
Figure 2-10: PSTN Fallback for BRI Ports
Version 6.0

Mediant 600
Notes:
2.4.7
•
Damage can be caused to external equipment if PSTN Fallback is
activated on two ports that are configured as user side.
•
Ensure that paired BRI ports (i.e., ports I and II, and ports III and IIII) are
not identically configured (i.e., both user or both net side); otherwise,
PSTN Fallback does not function.
Connecting to FXS/FXO Interfaces
The procedure below describes the cabling of the device's FXS and FXO module analog
interfaces.
Warnings:
•
To protect against electrical shock and fire, use a 26 AWG min wire to
connect FXO ports to the PSTN.
•
Ensure that FXS and FXO ports are connected to the appropriate,
external devices; otherwise, damage to the device can occur.
¾ To connect the FXS /FXO interfaces:

Saving and Resetting the Device
To apply configuration changes to the device's volatile memory (RAM), click the Submit
button located on the page in which you are configuring. Modifications to parameters
with on-the-fly capabilities are immediately applied to the device; other parameters are
applied only after a device reset. However, parameters saved to the volatile memory revert
to their previous settings after a hardware or software reset (or if the device is powered
down). Therefore, to ensure that all parameter changes (whether on-the-fly or not) are

Software Upgrade Wizard
The Software Upgrade Wizard allows you to easily upgrade the device's firmware (cmp file)
as well as load an ini file and/or auxiliary files (e.g., Call Progress Tones). However, it is
mandatory, when using the wizard to first load a cmp file to the device. You can then
choose to also load an ini file and/or auxiliary files, but this cannot be pursued without first
loading an cmp file. For the ini and each auxiliary file type, you can choose to load a new
file, or not load a file, but use the existing file (i.e., maintain existing configuration) running
on the device.
The Software Upgrade Wizard allows you to load the following files:
„
cmp: (Mandatory) compressed firmware file
„
ini: (Optional) Configuration file
„
Auxiliary files: (Optional) CPT (Call Progress Tone), VP (Voice Prompts), PRT
(Prerecorded Tones), CAS, and USERINF (User Info)

•
To preserve all configuration settings, before upgrading the device to a
new major software version (e.g., from version 5.8 to 6.0), save a copy of
the device's configuration settings (i.e., ini file) to your PC and ensure
that you have all the original auxiliary files (e.g., CPT file) currently used
by the device. After you have upgraded the device, restore your
configuration settings by uploading these files to the device. For backing
up and restoring configuration, refer to 'Backing Up and Restoring
Configuration' on page 42.
•
The Software Upgrade Wizard requires the device to be reset at the end
of the process, which may disrupt traffic. To avoid this, disable all traffic
on the device before initiating the wizard, by performing a graceful lock
(refer to 'Saving and Resetting the Device' on page 39).
•
Before you can load an ini or any auxiliary file, you must first load a cmp
file.
