Configuration on the 3CX Server Side
Installing the Mediatrix Gateway Templates on the 3CX Server
- If 3CX was installed on a Windows server using the default settings and folder, go to C:\ProgramData\3CX\Instance1\Data\Http\Templates\gateway, or locate the 3CX templates folder in your system and open it. For Debian installation, templates are located under: /var/lib/3cxpbx/Instance1/Data/Http/Templates/
- Copy the Mediatrix gateway templates in the gateway folder.
Click CTRL + F5 to refresh your browser.
Note: You do not need to restart the 3CX server.
Adding the Mediatrix FXO, E1/T1 or PSTN Gateway to the 3CX Server
- In the 3CX Web interface, click SIP Trunks, located on the left-hand side of the window.
- In the SIP Trunks section, click + Add Add gateway.
- In the Add PSTN gateway dialog box, from the Select Brand selection list, choose Mediatrix.
- From the Select model/device selection list, choose your unit model.
- Set the number of PSTN ports. (PRI or FXO ports used)
- Enter the Main Trunk Number .
- Click OK.
Configuring the FXO or E1/T1 Mediatrix Gateway in 3CX
- In the 3CX Web interface, under the General tab, in the Enter name of trunk, type the name of the Mediatrix device.
- From the Registrar/Server/Gateway Hostname or I field, enter the static IP address of the Mediatrix Uplink port.
- From the Tone Set Selection selection list, choose your country.
- In the Number of Sim Calls filed enter the max. number of calls allowed over the SIP trunk (e.g. 23 for a T1 PRI)
- Enter the Number or Physical PSTN ports on device (e.g. number of PRI ports or FXO ports on the Mediatrix gateway).
- In the Type of Authentication field, choose IP-based or Register/Account based, depending on your set-up.
- For inbound call handling (from gateway towards 3CX), define how incoming calls are handled in the Routing of Calls to Main Number section. (In this example, all incoming calls are forwarded to extension 100).
Note: If you select a Register/Account based type of authentication, the Mediatrix Gateway will later be configured to create a Unit Registration towards the 3cx server, using the Authentication ID that is defined in the Authentication area of the 3cx
Exporting the 3CX Configuration Script to your PC
- In the 3CX Web interface, click SIP Trunks, located on the left-hand side of the window.
- In the SIP Trunks section, double-click on the gateway that you have just created.
- In Mediatrix gateway configuration window, select the Options tab.
In the PSTN Gateway Options section, located at the bottom
of the page, enter the MACaddress of the Mediatrix unit.
Note: The MAC address of the device is used in the filename of the configuration file created by 3CX. Refer to Locating the MAC Address of Your Mediatrix Unit.
Then on the type of Mediatrix unit you are using, choose one of the following
- For each BRI port of the BRI Mediatrix Gateway (4400 series), define the Bri Endpoint and Connection Type (NT or TE) as well as the Bri Q931 protocol (DSS1 or QSIG)
- For each PRI port of the PRI Mediatrix Gateway (G7 series), define the PRI Line and Endpoint Type (E1 or T1, NT or TE) as well as the PRI Q931 Protocol" (DSS1, NI-1, 5ESS, NI-2, QSIG)
