Using Paging Devices with an FXO Mediatrix Unit
This configuration notes explains how to configure a Mediatrix unit with an FXO port to use paging devices.
- The Mediatrix unit is connected to the Network via the Uplink network interface.
- The Mediatrix unit must have an FXO port.
Information to Know Before Starting
Before starting to use these configuration notes, complete the following table to make sure you have the required information to complete the different steps.
|Information||Value||Used in Step|
|IP address used by your Mediatrix unit to communicate with the Management
||Use this value 192.168.0.10||Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface|
||Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface|
|IP address of the IP PBX for the Registrar Host and the Proxy Host.||Configuring the Default SIP Servers|
|The DTMF configuration of your FXO must match the PBX's setting.||Configuring DTMF Transport|
Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface
In your Web browser, enter the IP address at which the Web interface of your
Mediatrix unit can be reached.
- If your network has an IPv4 DHCP server, connect the primary Ethernet port of the Mediatrix unit to the network (ETH1 port), use the provided DHCP server IP address.
- You can also connect your computer to the secondary Ethernet port of the Mediatrix unit (ETH2), use the 192.168.0.10 IP address. However, the computer must also own an IP address in the 192.168.0.0/24 network.
Enter admin as your
username and administrator as the
Note: You can also use public as a username and leave the password field empty; it has the full administration rights by default.
- Click Login.

- In the Proxy Host field, indicate the server IP address or FQDN of the SIP Proxy server.
- In the Messaging Server Host field, indicate the server IP address or FQDN of the Messaging server, if needed.
Leave the Outbound Proxy Host field
empty, unless specifically instructed to set a value.
Note: Setting the address to 0.0.0.0:0 or leaving the field empty disables the outbound proxy host.
- Click Apply.
- Located at the top of the page, click restart required services.
Configuring the FXO Endpoints for Paging Devices
- Go to SIP/Registrations.
- In the Endpoints Registration table, in the User Name field, enter the paging line extension for each FXO port used for paging devices.
- In the Friendly Name field, enter a name to recognise the usage of the FXO port.
- If your IP PBX requires authentication, choose from the Register drop down list Enable.
- Click Apply and Refresh.
Disabling Silence Suppression
- Go to Media/Codecs.
From the Select Codec Bank, choose the
G.723.1, G.726 or G.729 codec bank.
Note: All Codec Banks include the T.38, the Clear Mode, the Clear Channel, and the X-CCD codecs.
- In the Select Endpoint drop down menu, select the endpoint you want to configure.
- In the Codec table, from the T.38 selection list, choose Disable.
- In the Generic Voice Activity Detection (VAD) table, set Enable (G.711, G.722 and G.726) to Disable.

Configuring DTMF Transport
- Go to Media/Misc.
In the DTMF Transport
table, set the Transport Method to the one
set in the VoIP server.
- Out-of-Band using RTP (RFC2833). This is usually the preferred method. Remember to set the payload type if different (e.g.: 96, 101 or 110 in some cases).
- Out-of-Band using SIP. For Cisco or Avaya systems, from the SIP Transport Method field, use Info DTMF Relay. For legacy Nortel and others, leave Draft Choudhuri SIP Info Digit 00.
- Signaling Protocol Dependent: choose this method if unsure. It will try to use the method negotiated by the VoIP server.
- Click Apply.

Mediatrix devices are supplied with an exhaustive set of documentation.
Mediatrix user documentation is available on the Media5 Documentation Portal.
- 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.
