1. EasyGate purpose
1.1. Basic Functions
·
·
·
·
The primary purpose of EasyGate is to transmit voice between a GSM network and
an attached FXO-interface terminal (PBX, telephone, answering machine, etc.).
You can establish data connections (GPRS, CSD), fax connections (PC-FAX) and
send/receive SMS using EasyGate in combination with a PC and appropriate
software.
You can send an SMS to a pre-programmed number using the SMS sending input.
Analogue fax transmition on some models.
1.2. Advantages of EasyGate Use
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
Call cost cutting – by forwarding GSM calls to EasyGate you save a lot on PSTN –
GSM calls.
Easy installation – EasyGate is designed for immediate use without programming.
You get all you need in the delivery – your EasyGate delivery contains all you need
to operate the system (the power supply adapter, telephone cable, PC serial cable,
SMS input connector, CD-ROM with software).
Solution for sites without telephone lines – such as mountain chalets, exhibitions,
conferences, etc.
CLIP - EasyGate is equipped with the FSK-based CLIP feature, so if a terminal
capable of receiving the CLIP is used you know the caller‘s number.
Quick data connection – EasyGate transmits data using the high-speed GPRS
connection (GPRS class 10, max. 85.6 kbps).
SMS sending input – simply send an SMS to a pre-programmed number by closing
the contact. Recommended for easy supervision, simple securing, etc.
Radiation hazard minimization – you are not exposed to a direct effect of the
antenna RF electromagnetic field while telephoning as opposed to mobile telephones.
Full GSM coverage - EasyGate is available in the following versions: dual-band
(900 and 1800MHz), tri-band for European markets (900, 1800 and 1900MHz), and
tri-band for the American market (850, 1800 and 1900MHz).

2. Installation
2.1. Proper Location
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
EasyGate is designed for vertical mounting on suspension holes (use the mounting
pattern). This position is the best for signal reception because a vertical antenna is
used. EasyGate can be operated in the horizontal position too where the GSM
signal is good.
Install EasyGate with respect to the GSM signal strength – check the signal strength
using the PCManager.
Place EasyGate out of range of sensitive devices and human bodies for electromagnetic
interference reasons.
For the allowed range of operating temperatures refer to the “Technical
Parameters”.
It is impossible to operate EasyGate on sites exposed to direct solar radiation or
near heat sources.
EasyGate is designed for indoor use. It may not be exposed to rain, flowing water,
condensed moisture, fog, etc.
EasyGate may not be exposed to aggressive gas, acid vapours, solvents, etc.
EasyGate is not designed for environments with high vibrations such as means of
transport, machine rooms, etc.

2.2. External Antenna Connection
Screw the antenna enclosed into the SMA antenna connector. Tighten the antenna
connector gently with your hand - never use wrenches!
The antenna enclosed has a sufficient gain for trouble-free operation in normal
conditions. If the GSM signal is poor or you want to place your antenna separately from
EasyGate, you can use an antenna with an SMA-connector terminated cable. The
antenna should be mounted vertically.
The Antenna shall be located within the same building as the main equipment.
For antenna and cable parameters see the “Technical Parameters“.
2.3. SIM Card Installation
Make sure that the GSM provider’s SIM card is compatible with the GSM network
supported by your EasyGate version.
Open the SIM card holder on EasyGate’s backside, insert the SIM card and close it.
Select the required GSM provider and SIM card services, such as call forwarding, call
barring, preferred networks, SMS service centre, etc. in your mobile phone before
inserting your SIM card in EasyGate.

2.5. Telephone Line Connection
2.5.1. PBX Connection
Connect EasyGate to a free CO line of your PBX. Configure your PBX in such a
manner that GSM outgoing calls are routed to EasyGate.
EasyGate is equipped with the FSK-based CLIP function. If your PBX is able to
process the caller’s ID, you are advised to enable this function.
2.5.2. Telephone Set (Answering Machine, Coin Telephone Station) Connection
You can connect a standard telephone, answering machine or any other FXO-interface
terminal to EasyGate. Optionally you can connect analogue fax (special model of
EasyGate).
EasyGate is equipped wit the FSK-based CLIP and so it is advantageous to connect a
terminal that is able to display the CLI.
2.6. Power Supply Connection
EasyGate is fed with 10-16V DC. Where a source other than the included power supply
adapter is used, the voltage range and polarity shown on the EasyGate power supply
connector have to be maintained.
Do not activate the power supply until the antenna is connected to EasyGate to avoid
the GSM module damage.
2.7. SMS Sending Input Connection
You have got a special connector for easy connection to EasyGate. The connector is
equipped with screwing clamps to connect wires leading to a switching contact (device
to be monitored). The other connector end can be connected to the respective
EasyGate panel connector.
The input is designed for the switching contact connected between the input pins.
The input is activated by contact closing (pin interconnection).
4
A transistor switch or logic signal can be used too. The pin near the telephone line
connector is connected to GND of the device the second one is active. Please, respect
the loop current polarity. The input is over-voltage protected (up to +12V DC).
2.8. PC Connection
You have got a serial cable for PC connection. It is a modem cable where all of the 9
pins are 1:1 interconnected – in case you wanted to use another, longer cable. Make sure
that a longer cable works properly to avoid errors at high transmission rates.

4. SIM Card PIN protection
If a SIM card is PIN-protected and the PIN is not programmed in EasyGate, GSM
LED indicates the state and the PIN tone is transmitted on telephone line.
4.1. PIN Entering by PCManager
Like other parameters, the PIN code can be entered using a PC programming tool.
The PIN will be entered automatically upon next EasyGate power up.
4.2. PIN Entering via Telephone Line
To enter the PIN via a telephone line using the DTMF:
1. Hook off the telephone, you can hear the PIN tone.
2. Enter the PIN using the DTMF; to cancel the wrong PIN hang up before
sending a
.
3. To confirm enter a
.
4. If you hear the busy tone in a while (a few seconds), you have entered the PIN
correctly. Hook on and wait for registering to the GSM network.
5. If you hear the PIN tone again in a while, you have entered a wrong PIN. Reenter the PIN.
6. If you hear the PUK tone in a while, you have entered a wrong PIN and the
SIM card is blocked. Use the mobile phone to unblock the SIM card.
A correctly entered PIN is stored in EasyGate’s memory as if you had programmed it
using the PCManager. The PIN will be entered automatically upon the next EasyGate
power up.
4.3. Automatic PIN Entering
You need not enter the PIN upon power up if it is stored in EasyGate – it is entered
automatically. This function is convenient in case of power failure; EasyGate is operable
in a short time after power recovery without any intervention by the operating staff.
Caution! One PIN entering option is exhausted by the attempt to enter the PN
automatically upon SIM card or PIN change. If wrong, the automatically entered PIN is
cleared from the internal memory to avoid another false attempt upon next power on.
There are still two manual PIN-entering attempts after such unsuccessful automatic
entering. To prevent the unsuccessful automatic PIN entering, delete or program
properly the EasyGate PIN using the PCManager in the case of SIM card change.

5. Voice function
Outgoing and incoming call establishing procedures for an analog telephone are
described for illustration. The procedures are the same for the EasyGate-PBX
connection, just remember to program call routing to EasyGate properly. Check
EasyGate’s function by connecting a telephone before.
Suppose that a SIM card has been inserted, the PIN code entered or not required,
the antenna connected and EasyGate registered to GSM network – the GSM network
LED is permanently on and you can hear the dial tone upon off-hook.
5.1. Outgoing Call
1. Hook off the telephone, you can hear the dial tone and the Line LED starts flashing.
2. Dial the required GSM subscriber number. Since EasyGate receives tone dialing by
default, select the DTMF mode. If your telephone transmits pulse dialing only,
program EasyGate to receive pulse dialing. The delay between digits to be dialed
may not exceed 5 s (programmable parameter). The number is evaluated as complete
and transmitted to the GSM network after this timeout.
3. A short delay follows the last-dialed digit for EasyGate to await further dialing. Then,
the dialing end is signaled and connection is established.
4. If the called subscriber is available, you can hear the ringing tone. If not, you can
hear the busy tone or any of the GSM provider’s messages.
5. When the called subscriber answers the call, a call is established. The Line LED is
permanently on during the call.
6. Hang up to terminate the call. The Line LED goes off. If the called subscriber is the
first to hang up, you can hear the busy tone and hang up.
5.2. Incoming Call
1. Ringing signals an incoming call. The Line LED flashes during ringing. If
programmed so, EasyGate transmits the CLIP by FSK between the first and second
rings. Advanced telephone sets are able to display the CLI.
2. Hook off the phone to establish the call. The Line LED is permanently on during the
call.
3. Hang up to terminate the call. The Line LED goes off. If the called subscriber is the
first to hang up, you can hear the busy tone and hang up.
9
5.3. FAX call (only on models with fax converter)
EasyGate with fax converter has ability to send and receive fax messages using
analog fax Group 3 connected to telephone line. The fax communication service must
be registered with your network operator.
Sending a fax message
Prior to destination number must be dialed code *01*, to inform the Gateway, that the
following call is a fax call.
Receiving a fax message
It is recommended to activate separate fax number on your SIM card –
multinumbering scheme. Fax messages should be routed to this number, the
message will be than received as fax message.
If the fax number is not activated, the call from analogue network is not detected as
fax call and is routed via the analogue channel of GSM network and the call is not
successful. In this case it is possible to activate fax engine in the gateway to receive the
next call as fax call. The code *9901# must be send to the gateway to prepare it to
receive a fax call. After receiving the fax this setting is suspended.
5.4. Automatic Call ("BabyCall")
If the BabyCall function is enabled, a pre-programmed period of time is counted down
after off-hook. If you do not start dialing within this timeout, EasyGate signals dialing
end and starts establishing a call to the pre-programmed number automatically – from
now on EasyGate behaves as if a standard outgoing call had been established. Any
dialing during the BabyCall timeout cancels this function and a standard outgoing call
can be made.
5.5. Tariff pulses 16 or 12 kHz
EasyGate has tariff pulse transmitter. You can use tariff pulses for outgoing call
pricing. EasyGate offer pseudotariff only – tariff metering doesn’t correspond to real
price of call, tariff pulses are transmitted according to programmed parameters and call
duration. You must program specific parameters in call table to set tariff metering for
different prefixes of dialed numbers.
You can also program EasyGate to transmit tariff pulses as call connect/disconnect
signaling if your PBX cannot receive telephone line polarity change signaling.
10
6. SMS Sending Input
This universal input is intended especially for reporting alarm or error statuses of any
equipment provided with the appropriate contact (a relay contact, e.g.).
By activating this input (electric input pin interconnection) you send one SMS to one
pre-programmed telephone number.
Caution! Do not use in life-supporting or property-protection applications because of
the character of SMS service and EasyGate. The manufacturer shall not be liable for
health and property damage incurred as a result of SMS sending failure.
11
7. COM – Serial Interface
The complete serial interface RS-232C on a 9-pin connector is identical with any
external modem.
The transmission rate ranges from 1200 to 115200 bps (EasyGate supports
autobauding, i.e. responds to an AT command at a rate identical with the AT command
transmission rate, and retains set on this rate). The transmission setup must be 8 bits,
no parity and one STOP bit (8N1).
EasyGate’s central processor uses the same interface for establishing calls and so it
must have the possibility to block an external serial interface-all PC SW must provide
transmission hardware flow control (HW handshaking).
COM can be used for:
· Programming and monitoring;
· CSD PC-PC data transmission;
· PC-FAX-transmission of fax messages from your PC;
· CSD or high-speed GPRS connection to the Internet;
· SMS sending and receiving.
7.1. Programming, Monitoring
Install the EasyGate PCManager software available on the included CD-ROM into
your PC.
The program is designed for EasyGate parameter programming. It can read
configuration data from the memory and store them in EasyGate. Moreover, all
parameters can be saved in your PC file for backup or saving into another EasyGate
system.
The EasyGate PCManager contains an easy monitoring tool too. With this tool you
can identify the GSM provider’s name, signal strength, GSM module, SIM, and so on
during EasyGate operation.
7.2. CSD PC-PC Data Transmission
The CSD mode provides data transmission in the GSM network at the maximum
transmission rate of 14400 bps. It works like a classic connection of two modems (AT
commands ATD, ATH, ATA, etc.). Connection can be made with another GSM modem
or a PSTN modem.
Caution! Data calls and fax calls from the PSTN come as voice calls (the telephone
line on EasyGate rings) because an analog network is unable to distinguish a
modem/fax call. Therefore, it is necessary to have a special telephone number for
incoming data and fax calls on the SIM card different from voice call numbers (Multinumbering scheme). The GSM network identifies a call incoming to this number as a
data/fax call and lets the COM serial interface ring.
12
7.3. FAX Transmission - PC-FAX
EasyGate allows fax transmissions from your PC. However, do not confuse the PCFax service with a standard fax service – no fax machine can be connected to the
telephone line! But the PC-Fax can establish connection with a standard fax machine
and transmit documents.
To enable the PC-Fax service, install the faxmodem driver from the EasyGate CDROM first. Further you need the PC-Fax software, which is not included. In general, any
program designed for SIEMENS data modules (MC39i, MC45, or MC46) can work with
EasyGate. The WinFax program from Symantec has been successfully tested for this
purpose.
7.4. CSD or High-Speed GPRS Data Connection to Internet
To connect to the Internet, install the faxmodem driver from the EasyGate CD-ROM
first. Another possibility is to use the GSM provider’s installation wizard in case it
supports the SIEMENS GSM module installed in EasyGate (SIEMENS MC39i, MC45,
or MC46).
The installation wizard usually configures the telephone connection of the network
too. If you use manual installation, you have set it properly. Ask you GSM provider for
Internet connection instructions because they can be different for each provider
(especially the telephone number to be dialed, DNS, etc.). It is necessary, for example,
to set the APN in modem extra settings in the GPRS mode:
Example: at+cgdcont=1,"IP","internet.t-mobile.cz"
Caution! GSM providers mostly specify the *99# number to be dialed for GPRS
connection in their instructions. SIEMENS GSM modules require the *99***1# format.
7.4.1. CSD or GPRS Data Connection?
The maximum CSD transmission rate is 14400 bps. GSM connection is reserved for
the whole time of connection and calls are charged according to the connection time.
The CSD mode can provide data connection of two PCs.
EasyGate is equipped with GSM modules providing GPRS class 10 (4+2 timeslots),
which means that it is able to transmit data into a PC at the rate of 85600 bps and at
half the rate towards the GSM network. The GPRS cannot be used for connection of
two PCs. It can only provide connection with an APN – e.g. the Internet. Most GSM
providers charge GPRS connections according to the volume of data transmitted or by a
lump sum and so the GPRS is suitable for long-time connection with occasional data
transmissions.
7.5. SMS Sending and Receiving
It is possible to send and receive SMS units using appropriate AT commands. There
are a number of PC programs that are based on this principle. Install SW designed for
SIEMENS GSM modules (SIEMENS mobile telephone SW can also be used). You can
send and receive SMS even during EasyGate voice calls.
13
7.6. Combination of COM Traffic with Voice Calls
As already mentioned, SMS transmission can be made even during telephone calls.
The SMS program is only blocked temporarily during outgoing call establishing and
incoming call ringing.
The same applies to PCManager monitoring. A message announcing that EasyGate
is blocked is displayed during voice call establishing.
No voice call can be made during CSD data transmission and PC-FAX connection.
Outgoing and incoming calls can be made during GPRS connection. The GPRS
connection remains active during the whole call but no data can be transmitted
(EasyGate is a GPRS terminal of class B). Once the call is terminated, data
transmission is recovered immediately.
7.7. List of Supported AT Commands
There are original files related to SIEMENS GSM modules in the PDF format on the
EasyGate CD-ROM.
Caution! Since the GSM module is primarily used by the EasyGate central processor
for voice calls, use AT commands carefully. You might misconfigure the GSM module
thus making EasyGate inoperative. To solve most of these problems, switch EasyGate
off and on again to make the central processor execute full initialization of the GSM
module.

8. EasyGate Parameter Programming
All EasyGate parameters have such default values that meet most users’ demands
and need not be changed. To change EasyGate parameters in spite of that, you can
either:
· Use a PC with the PCManager installed. All functions supported by EasyGate can
be set using the PC.
· Or use the DTMF programming on a telephone line. Not all functions can be set in
this way.
8.1. Telephone Line based Programming
1. Hook off the telephone, you can hear the dial tone or the busy tone, and the Line
LED starts flashing.
2. Enter the service password (12345 by default, can be changed) with the DTMF; to
cancel a wrong password hang up before sending the
character.
3. To confirm password enter a
.
4. If you have entered a correct password, you hear the confirmation tone. If not, the
dialed number may be sent to the GSM network as a call. To prevent this, hang up
when you do not hear the confirmation tone.
5. EasyGate shall remain in the programming mode until hang-up.
. If the
6. Enter the number of the parameter to be programmed and press a
parameter number is correct, you can hear the confirmation tone, if not, you get the
refusal tone and can re-enter the parameter number.
7. When the parameter number is confirmed, enter the allowed parameter value and
press a
. If the parameter value is in the allowed range, you can hear the saving
tone, if not, you get the refusal tone. You can enter another parameter number in
either case.
Numeric parameters are programmed using numbers in units included in the
parameter description. For YES/NO parameters use
for YES and
for NO.
To cancel any programming step in the programming mode, press a
. Having
done so, you can hear the refusal tone and can enter a new parameter number.
Parameters are saved when the saving tone is transmitted. Hang up to quit
programming.
Example:
Password entering, OK
Transmission volume parameter, OK
Set to medium level, saved
Non-existent parameter number, refusal
15
8.2. PC based Programming
For programming, connect EasyGate to a PC with a serial cable and make sure that
the EasyGate PCManager is installed. Programming is intuitive and easy. All steps are
accompanied with texts hints above all items you point at with the mouse.
EasyGate data uploading and storing, including firmware upgrade, are executed in a
special mode, in which EasyGate waits for about 3s after power up (all LEDs are on). If
instructed so by the PCManager during this timeout, EasyGate remains in this mode as
long as it is necessary. If EasyGate is not reset after the PCManager is terminated,
switch the system off and on again.

1. Run the PCManager and select the language for displaying texts on the right-hand
side.
2. Click on the CD-ROM icon for data handling on the left-hand side.
3. Load data from EasyGate – if EasyGate is not in its special programming mode, you
are invited to switch EasyGate off and on again.
4. Click on the programming table icon on the left-hand side.
5. The parameters are arranged according to their functions in the tables. Set all
parameters you want to change. If you point at a parameter with the mouse, help is
displayed.
6. Click on the CD-ROM icon again for handling data.
7. Save data into EasyGate – if EasyGate is not in its special programming mode, you
are invited to switch EasyGate off and on again.

8.2.2. Further Data Handling Options
In addition to the EasyGate memory, settings can be saved in a PC file and reloaded
into the PCManager. This is recommended for backing up of current configurations or
saving the same configuration in another EasyGate unit.
Caution! The table Security includes the PIN code and service password. These
parameters have a special handling. They are not saved in a PC file for security
reasons. If you load a PC file into the PCManager and then into EasyGate, the PIN and
service password should not change unless you change them manually before saving.
Caution! All tables are filled-in with default values after PCManager start. It is
recommended to load data from EasyGate before parameters programming and saving.
If you only save data after PCManager start, all parameters except the PIN and service
password in the EasyGate memory will have default values.
Caution! The PIN and service password can only be modified either manually or by
full initialization.
8.2.3. Upgrade
The manufacturer responds to clients' requirements with periodical firmware
updating. The current EasyGate firmware, PCManager and User Manual are available
on www.2n.cz. The latest firmware version is always included in every new PCManager
installation.
Upgrading procedure:
1. Run the PCManager, select the language for displaying texts on the right-hand side.
2. Click on the CD-ROM icon for data handling on the left-hand side.
3. Click on the upgrade – if EasyGate is not in its special programming mode, you are
invited to switch EasyGate off and on again.
4. The upgrade takes place automatically. Do not switch your PC or EasyGate off
during the process of upgrading!
Caution! The PCManager checks the software version in EasyGate and the upgrade
file. If the version in the file is new, everything is all right. An identical or earlier software
version is stored in EasyGate too but the PCManager requires confirmation to be on the
safe side.
Caution! With regard to potential EasyGate memory data structure change, the
PCManager and EasyGate are "matched" according to versions. A PCManager version
can be used for EasyGate programming that differs from the EasyGate version by a
letter following the version number (e.g.1.00A). The PCManager itself identifies this fact
and notifies you.
8.2.4. Monitoring
Monitoring is active when EasyGate is in operation and registered to the GSM
network. If EasyGate is not registered to GSM, the COM is locked and no monitoring
can be made.
This simple informative function helps you identify:
· The GSM module type and IMEI ID;
· The SIM card IMSI ID and selected SMS service centre necessary for SMS
sending;
17
·
·
The GSM provider's name and signal strength received by EasyGate - this
information helps you find the optimum signal location (the information is updated in
10s intervals);
The EasyGate line status – standby, outgoing call, incoming call including telephone
number. The COM is locked during dialing and incoming call ringing, so the
PCManager reports COM blocking.

8.3.2. Routing Parameters
All parameters related to the number dialed for an outgoing call are arranged in this
table. According to the prefix you can:
· Bar the number to be dialed - the calling subscriber hears the busy tone;
· Accelerate connection establishing by knowing the number length for the given
prefix;
· Accelerate connection establishing by allowing to terminate dialing with a #;
· Modify the number to be dialed by removing and/or adding digits.
· Set tariff metering for the given prefix.
Every table line includes a prefix (of variable length) plus parameters that define
EasyGate's behavior in case the beginning of the dialed number matches this prefix.
The table can contain up to 20 different prefixes.
There may be exceptions to the rule - a number may start with the same digits but
has to be served in a different way. Any table line that starts with the same prefix
followed by one or more digits is considered an exception of the line with shorter prefix.
Remember to complete the "Other numbers" line for a number whose prefix is not
included in the table.
An example in the figure below shows how to bar all international calls with the
exception of calls to Slovakia including dialing acceleration by selecting the number
length parameter and tariff setting (5 impulses after call connect and then one impulse
every 10 seconds). All other calls are enabled and their tariff is one impulse every 30
second.
