Join our Senior VoIP Engineer, Marc Spehalski, as he goes through the steps to hook up an analog phone to the Adtran Total Access 908E. From 66 Block to VoIP conference call! http://www.voipsupply.com/adtran-total-access-908e-4243908f1
Hi, my name is Mark Spehalski, Senior VoIP Engineer at VoIP Supply, and today, we are going to talk about the Adtran Total Access 908E VoIP Gateway. There is a lot of things this gateway can do, but today, we are going to use this as an FXS gateway to talk to our Renegade Mini PBX. Lets take a look at the back.
We have our twenty-five pair Amphenol connector; this device only has eight FXS, so only the first eight pair will be active. There is an optional FXO lifeline, which this one doesn’t have; we have four T1 ports, two, ten-one hundred Ethernet, a gigabit, USB port, console cable, battery backup port, and the power.
To use this as an FXS gateway, we’ll use one of these. A sixty-six punch down block. To connect it to the Adtran, plug in our Amphenol cable, into the Amphenol port on the Adtran. Now, we’ll punch down the analog phone to the first pair on the sixty-six block.
We’ll connect our analog phone to the first pair on the sixty-six block. The first pair is the top two pins. On the punch down, always make sure “yellow” is your cut side. You always cut down. Next, we will plug in our power, and network cable, and go straight into configuration. I’ll use one of the Ethernet ports, and we are ready to go.
First we will build an extension in our Renegade Mini PBX running Free PBX that the analog extension, in the Adtran 908E will register to. So, lets build an extension.
Next, we will create the same user in the 908E. We will set this as an analog station on FXS zero one. Next, we will build a SIP trunk that points to our phone system. There will be no registration details, because this is not a registration trunk.
Next, we’ll create a “trunk group.” Add our trunk as a member, and build a dial plan towards the PBX. We want the “add-delete” permit templates. We’ll use two, X, X, X.
Next, we’ll go back into our user account, and register to our phone system. Go to, “VoIP Settings”, add SIP identity, select the trunk, enable trunk registration, enter the SIP credentials for the extension. We’ll use the pre-generated SIP password; hit “apply.” We can check our registration status by clicking on “Trunk Registrations.” You can see that our extension is now registered to our PBX.
Now, we will test dialing from our analog extension to the Renegade Mini PBX. So, first, lets create a destination on the PBX. For this example, we’ll use a conference bridge.
Next, we’ll create an inbound rout. We’ll leave this as “Any DID”, “Any Caller ID.” Now, we will place a test call from analog phone, to the conference bridge.
“After the tone, say your name, and then press the pound key.”
“Thank you, you are currently the only person in this conference.”
As you can see, it’s pretty easy to use the Adtran Total Access 908E as an FXS gateway. Additionally, there are a lot of other features we didn’t go over today.
