1 Configuring the Mediatrix Unit

Top

1.1 Getting Started

Steps
  1. Make sure the WAN network interface (either WAN, ETH1, Ethernet, Network, or ETH5 depending on your model) of your Mediatrix unit is connected to the network.
  2. Make sure the second Ethernet connector (either LAN, ETH2, or Computer depending on your model) of your Mediatrix unit is connected to the computer.
  3. Log on to the Mediatrix unit Web interface.

    Note

    If you are using your Mediatrix unit for the first time, refer to its Mediatrix unit Quick Start guide.

1.2 Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface

Context
For better performances, it is recommended to use the latest available version of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.

Note

You may not be able to log on to the Mediatrix unit Web interface if you are using older browser versions. The computer's network card must be on the same subnet as the Mediatrix unit.

Steps
  1. In your Web browser, enter the IP address used by your Mediatrix unit to communicate with the Web interface.
    • If your computer is connected to the Ethernet port, commonly used to be connected to the Local Area Network (LAN), i.e. ETH2 on most devices, use the 192.168.0.10 IP address.
    • If your Mediatrix unit is configured to use a DHCP server with IPv4, use the provided DHCP server IP address.
  2. Enter public as your username and leave the password field empty.

    Note

    The public username account has administrator rights.

    Note

    You can also use admin as a username and administrator as password.

  3. Click Login.
Result
The Information page of the Web interface is displayed.

1.6 Configuring the Country for all Endpoints
Top

1.6 Configuring the Country for all Endpoints

Steps
  1. Go to Telephony/Misc.
  2. Make sure the Select Endpoint drop-down list is set to Default.

    Note

    Use these settings with great care. Media5 recommends not to modify the user gain parameter unless absolutely necessary because default calibrations may no longer be valid. Modifying user gains may cause problems with DTMF detection and voice quality – using a high user gain may cause sound saturation (the sound is distorted). Furthermore, some fax or modem tones may no longer be recognised. The user gains directly affect the fax communication quality and may even prevent a fax to be sent.

  3. In the Country table, select your country from the drop-down list.
  4. Click Apply.

4 Documentation

Mediatrix units are supplied with an exhaustive set of documentation.

Mediatrix user documentation is available on the Documentation Portal .

Several types of documents were created to clearly present the information you are looking for. Our documentation includes:

  • Release notes: Generated at each GA release, this document includes the known and solved issues of the software. It also outlines the changes and the new features the release includes.
  • Configuration notes: These documents are created to facilitate the configuration of a specific use case. They address a configuration aspect we consider that most users will need to perform. However, in some cases, a configuration note is created after receiving a question from a customer. They provide standard step-by-step procedures detailing the values of the parameters to use. They provide a means of validation and present some conceptual information. The configuration notes are specifically created to guide the user through an aspect of the configuration.
  • Technical bulletins: These documents are created to facilitate the configuration of a specific technical action, such as performing a firmware upgrade.
  • Hardware installation guide: They provide the detailed procedure on how to safely and adequately install the unit. It provides information on card installation, cable connections, and how to access for the first time the Management interface.
  • User guide: The user guide explains how to customise to your needs the configuration of the unit. Although this document is task oriented, it provides conceptual information to help the user understand the purpose and impact of each task. The User Guide will provide information such as where and how TR-069 can be configured in the Management Interface, how to set firewalls, or how to use the CLI to configure parameters that are not available in the Management Interface.
  • Reference guide: This exhaustive document has been created for advanced users. It includes a description of all the parameters used by all the services of the Mediatrix units. You will find, for example, scripts to configure a specific parameter, notification messages sent by a service, or an action description used to create Rulesets. This document includes reference information such as a dictionary, and it does not include any step-by-step procedures.
