Configuration Wizard

Related Topics:

There are no related Topics to the Node Configuration Wizard. The wizard touches so many different topics. Use the Webhelp online manual through ClientView or through the manuals site located at http://www.dialogic.com/manuals to find topics related to each of the different aspects of the Wizard.  

 

Overview

Description:

The Node Configuration Wizard was designed to help the ClientView user create a configuration for the IMG. The Node Configuration Wizard was also designed to help simplify the configuration process. The application written will help a user create a new configuration or add to an existing configuration by first asking some simple questions and then implementing the answers given. The Node Configuration Wizard can be started in a few different ways. See below for the various ways the Configuration Wizard can be started

 

First Solution to starting the wizard:

Second Solution to starting the wizard:

  1. If the General Configuration Wizard button is selected then the wizard will start at the T1/E1 Profiles screen like above.

  2. If the Add IMG Wizard button is selected the wizard will bypass all the General Configuration and start at the point of Adding a New IMG. This wizard will be for scenarios where the user just needs to add a New IMG to an existing configuration.

 

Third Solution to starting the wizard:

  1. To start from the Dialogic IMG EMS object and there is no configuration started yet select Dialogic IMG EMS --> General Configuration Wizard the General Configuration Wizard will begin starting with the IMG profiles. At this point any of the fields can be changed. See 1st screen capture under "Procedure" below

  2. To start from the Dialogic IMG EMS object and there is already a configuration present select Dialogic IMG EMS --> General Configuration Wizard the wizard will begin at the profiles screen however all profiles are locked. The only field that can get changed is the filename. See screen capture below

      1. From here the wizard will continue and ask whether you would like to configure all the General functions that are not specific to the Physical IMG

      2. The second object on the left hand side that can be selected is the Physical IMG itself. Right Click on the Physical IMG and select IMG Configuration Wizard. Once this is done the wizard will look at what is already configured under the Physical IMG object and start a configuration window on something that is not already configured. For Example if the wizard is run and SIP is already configured in ClientView, the wizard will skip the SIP and start with H.323 configuration.

 

Procedure:

NOTE: Below is a quick configuration using only 1 IMG, T1 Spans and limited external network elements. It is to be used as a guide for configuring a new system. Not all configuration options will get configured nor will all the options in each screen be explained. This procedure will give the user a good idea how the Configuration Wizard works and a little information on each screen. If the user needs to get more in depth about the screen being configured then the Help button can be selected from each screen and that will bring you to the correct point in the WebHelp Manual.  The Configuration Wizard will be opened using the second method shown above which is to select the General Configuration Wizard (Profiles) button.

 

NOTE: Each of the configuration screens will have a button "Set Defaults". If this button is selected then all settings in that screen will resort back to default values.

  1. Configuration Filename > Filename to be given to this configuration. We will give filename = T1_Profile1

  2. TDM Termination Type > T1 Only, E1 Only, Both, or none are the selections in the drop down menu. For this config we will select T1 Only

  3. Create IP Profiles? --> Will this configuration need to configure IP Bearer Profiles such as  G711, G729, etc. Select Yes or No.

  4. Create a Custom SIP Profile? > Will this configuration need a custom SIP profile created?

  5. Select Next

  1. Name > Box will be populated with the name given this profile previously

  2. Framing > Select either ESF or D4 from drop down menu

  3. Signaling > Clear Channel will be selected for either ISDN or SS7 configuration. If configuring CAS, this selection is in the drop down menu.

  4. Line Length and Line Coding values are selectable from drop down menu

  5. Select "Next"

  1. The IP Bearer Profile ID > Automatically populated with next available number

  2. The "Vocoders to enable" box >  When clicked on brings up another box with all vocoders supported. Multiple Vocoders can be selected by holding the CTRL button on keyboard down and clicking each vocoder

  3. IP Bearer Profile Name > A name given to this IP Bearer Profile

  4. Go through each of the other boxes in this screen. When satisfied of selections click on "Next"

  1. Name > Enter a name for the Gateway to identify it

  2. Gateway Signaling Protocol > Either SIP or H323 are selectable in drop down menu

  3. Gateway Address Type > Gateway can be found by either an IP address or if configuring SIP then the  Gateway Hostname or the IP address can be used.

  4. Gateway IP address > Enter IP Address of Gateway if Gateway IP Address Type is selected.

  5. Gateway Hostname > Enter Hostname of Gateway if Gateway Hostname Type is selected.

  6. SIP Profile > Drop down list of all SIP profiles configured

  7. Select any other setting that are for your network and select "Next".

  1. Which Protocols will be used > Click on this box and a "Select Multiple items" box appears. Using the Ctrl button on keyboard the user can select multiple protocols at once to get configured. In this example only SIP and SS7 are selected.

  2. New Logical IMG Name > Give the logical IMG group a Name.

  3. IMG ID: > Automatically populated with next available ID.Can be manually selected also.

  4. IMG Name > The name that is given to the physical IMG. Note: There can be multiple physical IMGs under one logical IMG. In this example my logical is Massachusetts and my physical IMGs is Boston. I can add Hyannis, Worcester,  etc as physical IMGs

  5. IP address > IP address of this physical IMG

  6. Select "Next" when all information is correct

 

Note: When SS7 is selected as a protocol it would be expected that SS7 will be one of the protocols that will get configured. That is not the case. The SS7 protocol is not configurable through the Wizard. It will need to be configured separately after the Wizard has been completed.

 

Note: SS7 configuration is not yet available in the Configuration Wizard. If SS7 is going to be part of your configuration then the  SS7 signaling protocol should still be chosen. This way the wizard will know whether to add the IMG to a Logical Group or not. If SS7 is chosen as a signaling protocol then the physical IMG will be placed under a Logical Group. If SS7 is not one of the protocols selected then the IMG does not need to be put under a logical group.

  1. VOIP Module 0 Address > Give this an IP address suitable for the network it will reside on.

  2. VOIP Module 1 Address > Give this an IP address suitable for the network it will reside on. If the module is greened out as in example above, that means there is only one VOIP module installed

  3. VOIP Module Gateway > IP Address of the Gateway the VOIP module will be connected to

  4. Starting RTP Port > This is selectable from 8000 to 62462. The deafult is 8000
