Deployment of Media Gateway in a Network

The following diagram shows how the Media Gateway must be deployed in a network on a separate voice LAN from the management LAN. The separate voice LAN is connected to the UCx Server via the Ethernet1 port interface. (See Configure a Second Network Port for configuration instructions.)


The following table provides a list of network configuration parameters that you should prepare:

Parameter

Default Value

Selected Value

UCx Server IP address 192.168.1.200 (Ethernet0)
192.168.10.200 (Ethernet1)
_____ . _____ . _____ . _____
_____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC ELAN IP Address   _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC ELAN Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC ELAN Gateway IP Address   _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC TLAN IP Address   _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC TLAN Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC TLAN Gateway IP Address   _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC DSP Daughterboard Slot1 TLAN IP address   _____ . _____ . _____ . _____
MGC DSP Daughterboard Slot2 TLAN IP address   _____ . _____ . _____ . _____

The IP addresses assigned to UCx Server, MGC ELAN, MGC TLAN and MGC DSP daughterboard TLAN must be in the same subnet. (e.g. 192.168.10.x as in the diagram above).

In Release 6.0 and later, MGCs can register to the UCx Server at a remote location over the internet, however the MGC ELAN and TLAN IP addresses need to be in the same subnet.
