How Can We Help?

Setting up Line Cards (NIMs)

BE4000 allows you to connect to traditional telephony services and devices by adding Network Interface Modules (NIM). You can add a maximum of two NIM cards. For the list of supported NIM cards, refer Supported Line Cards.

Step 1: Turn on the slider for the NIM card slot where you want to insert the NIM card.

Step 2: Select the NIM card as per your connectivity requirements.

Note: Only one BRI/PRI port is supported, please use the first port on the line card (0/0).

NIM-2FXS or NIM-4FXS

Step 1: Choose one of the following:

  • Disabled—The line is inactive.
  • Analog Phone—The line is connected to an analog phone.
  • Paging—The line is connected to an external paging system.
  • Automatic Ringdown—The line is connected to a phone that has a dedicated connection with another phone. When the phone connected to this line goes off hook, the destination phone rings. There is no need to dial any number.

Step 2: Enter a label to identify each phone line in the “Line” field. Only 0-9 a-z A-Z ! # % , – . / = _ ? are allowed.

Step 3: Enter the extension number for the FXS phone line in the “Extension” field.

Step 4: Choose a class of restrictions (COR) from “Restrictions” drop-down list. COR decides the type of calls that can be placed from the FXS phone line. The available options are:

  • Internal
  • Local
  • Local-Plus
  • National
  • National-Plus
  • International

Step 5: Choose a type of algorithm from the “Law” field.

  • U-law
  • A-law

 

NIM-2FXO or NIM-4FXO

Step 1: Choose one of the following:

  • Disabled—The line is inactive.
  • Trunk—The line is connected to the Public Switched Telephone Network.
  • Paging—The line is connected to an external paging system.

Step 2: Enter a name for each analog line in the “Line” field. Only 0-9 a-z A-Z ! # % , – . / = _ ? are allowed.

Step 3: Enter the number for each analog line in the “Number” field.

Step 4: Choose the line to be uni-directional or bi-directional from the “Direction” drop-down list.

  • Uni-directional allows the phone line to receive the calls.
  • Bi-directional allows the phone line to receive and make calls

Step 5: Choose a type of algorithm from the “Law” field.

  • U-law
  • A-law

 

NIM-2FXS/4FXO

Step 1: Choose one of the following:

  • Disabled—The line is inactive.
  • Analog Phone—The line is connected to an analog phone.
  • Paging—The line is connected to an external paging system.
  • Automatic Ringdown—The line is connected to a phone that has a dedicated connection with another phone. When the phone connected to this line goes off hook, the destination phone rings. There is no need to dial any number.

Step 2: Enter a label to identify each FXS phone line in the “Line” field. Only 0-9 a-z A-Z ! # % , – . / = _ ? are allowed.

Step 3: Enter the extension number for the FXS phone line in the “Extension” field.

Step 4: Choose a class of restrictions (COR) from “Restrictions” drop-down list. COR decides the type of calls that can be placed from the FXS phone line. The available options are:

  • Internal
  • Local
  • Local-Plus
  • National
  • National-Plus
  • International

Step 5: Enter a name for the FXO analog line in the “Line” field. Only 0-9 a-z A-Z ! # % , – . / = _ ? are allowed.

Step 6: Enter the number for each analog line in the “Number” field.

Step 7: Choose the line to be uni-directional or bi-directional from the “Direction” drop-down list.

  • Uni-directional allows the phone line to receive the calls
  • Bi-directional allows the phone line to receive and make calls

Step 8: Choose a type of algorithm from the “Law” field.

  • U-law
  • A-law

 

NIM-2BRI-NT/TE or NIM-4BRI-NT/TE

Step 1: Choose one of the following:

  • Disabled—The line is inactive.
  • Trunk—The line is connected to the Public Switched Telephone Network.

Step 2: Choose a service name from the “Service Name” drop-down list. The drop-down contains the list of service providers that you added in the DID page. You cannot choose the same service provider for SIP and Line Cards.

Step 3: Choose whether you want your call setup to work based on overlap receiving from the “Overlap Receiving” drop-down list. You can enable or disable. If your service provider does not use “enbloc” signaling, this option allows BE4000 to wait for additional digits to be received before the call is routed.

Optional

  • If your service provider requires that your line use a static Terminal Endpoint Identifier, enter the value between 0 and 63 in the “Static TEI” field. If the field is left blank, the line attempt to negotiate a TEI.
  • Check the “Send Redirecting IE Number” check box to include the Redirecting Number Information Element in the outbound Setup messages. Leave unchecked if you are not sure about your service provider supporting this feature.
  • Enter the ISDN SPID in the “ISDN SPID” field. Some service providers use service profile identifiers (SPIDs) to define the services subscribed to by the ISDN device that is accessing the ISDN service provider. A SPID is usually a seven-digit phone number with some optional numbers.
  • Choose a method for TEI negotiation based on your service provider requirements from the “TEI-Negotiation Method”. Setting a static TEI overrides TEI negotiation.
  • The default behavior is TEI to be negotiated on power up. The following options are provided to preserve or remove a negotiated TEI when the interface is reset:
    • Power Up and Remove
    • Power Up and Preserve
    • First Call and Remove
    • First Call and Preserve

 

NIM-1MFT-T1/E1, NIM-2MFT-T1/E1, or NIM-4MFT-T1/E1

Step 1: Choose the card type based on your customer network requirement. E1 PRI is chosen by default. The available options are:

  • T1 PR1
  • E1 PRI

Step 2: Choose one of the following:

  • Disabled—The line is inactive.
  • Trunk—The line is connected to the Public Switched Telephone Network.

Step 3: Choose a service name from the “Service Name” drop-down list. The drop-down contains the list of service providers that you added in the DID page. You cannot choose the same service provider for SIP and Line Cards.

Optional:

    • Choose one of the following ISDN Service Provider PRI Switch Types from the “ISDN Switch Type” drop-down list:
      • primary-4ess
      • primary-5ess
      • dms100
      • primary-net5
      • primary-ni

“primary-4ess” is chosen by default.

  • Choose either “Full PRI” or “partial PRI” from the “Controller Setup” drop-down list. Defines the controller setup for configuring channelized T1 or E1 controllers.
  • Choose a line code from the “Line Code” drop-down list. The options listed is dependent on the card type chosen. By default, the line code for E1 PRI is high-density bipolar 3 (hdb3).
  • Choose the framing from the “Framing” drop-down list. This option defines the framing characteristics. The options listed is dependent on the card type chosen.
  • Check the “Send Redirecting IE Number” check box to include the Redirecting Number Information Element in the outbound Setup messages. Leave unchecked if you are not sure about your service provider supporting this feature.
