2 Remote Office with Local Survivability - Mediatrix SBC Located in the LAN

This use case describes the configuration of remote office when the Mediatrix unit is located in the LAN When the Mediatrix unit is located in the LAN, it implies that:

  • When the registrar SIP trunk fails, local calls go through the SBC.
  • When the registrar SIP trunk fails, PSTN calls go through the SBC but are not sent to the registrar.
  • In survivability situations, when the registrar SIP trunk comes back online, the Mediatrix unit must wait for a REGISTER to go through before sending the calls to the SIP trunk.
  • The Mediatrix unit is located in the LAN, behind a Near-End NAT.

2.1 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.

2.2 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.
