disconnected last. Statement 1046
•
Warning
Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.
Read the installation instructions before connecting the system to the power source. Statement 1004
•
Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power
extension cables, frayed power cords, and missing safety grounds.
•
If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:
– Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.
– Turn OFF power to the system.
– If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, assess the condition of the victim
and then call for help.
– Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions; then take
appropriate action.
Warning
This product relies on the building’s installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that
a fuse or circuit breaker no larger than 120 VAC, 15A U.S. (240 VAC, 10A international) is used on the
phase conductors (all current-carrying conductors). Statement 13
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD damage occurs
when electronic components are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures.
Always follow ESD-prevention procedures when you remove and replace components. Ensure that the
chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it
makes good skin contact. Connect the grounding clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to
safely ground unwanted ESD voltages. To guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and
cord must operate properly. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of
the chassis.
Caution
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between 1 and
10 megohm (Mohm).

Preparing to Connect to a Network
Warning
The ISDN connection is regarded as a source of voltage that should be inaccessible to user contact.
Do not attempt to tamper with or open any public telephone operator (PTO)-provided equipment or
connection hardware. Any hardwired connection (other than by a nonremovable,
connect-one-time-only plug) must be made only by PTO staff or suitably trained engineers.
Statement 23
Ethernet Connections
Two Gigabit Ethernet (GE) RJ-45 ports are located on the rear panel of the universal gateway: GE0 and
GE1 (selectable). To configure the Ethernet ports, see the Cisco AS5350XM and Cisco AS5400XM
Universal Gateways Software Configuration Guide. Both ports use unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable
and require Category 5 cable. The maximum segment distance is 328 feet (100 meters).
Note
UTP cables look like the cables used for ordinary telephones; however, UTP cables meet certain
electrical standards that telephone cables do not. Cables are not included.
Console and Auxiliary Ports
The Cisco AS5350XM universal gateway includes an asynchronous serial console port and an auxiliary
port. The console and auxiliary ports provide access to the universal gateway either locally (with a
console terminal) or remotely (with a modem). This section discusses important cabling information to
consider before connecting a console terminal (an ASCII terminal or PC running terminal emulation
software) to the console port, or a modem to the auxiliary port.
Console Port
The Cisco AS5350XM universal gateway includes an EIA/TIA-232 asynchronous serial console port
(RJ-45). Depending on the cable and the adapter used, this port will appear as a data terminal equipment
(DTE) or data communications equipment (DCE) device at the end of the cable. Your universal gateway
arrives with cables and adapters to connect a console terminal (an ASCII terminal or PC running terminal
emulation software) to the console port. To connect an ASCII terminal to the console port, use the RJ-45
rollover cable with the female RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter (labeled TERMINAL).
To connect a PC running terminal emulation software to the console port, use the RJ-45 rollover cable
with the female RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter (labeled TERMINAL). The default parameters for the console
port are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 2 stop bits. The console port does not support hardware
flow control.
For detailed information about installing a console terminal, see Chapter 3, “Installing the
Cisco AS5350XM Universal Gateway.” See Appendix C, “Cabling Specifications,” for cable and port
pinouts.
