beroNet OS Web Interface (firmware 19.07)

Getting Started

The first thing to do is to login with the default credentials on your device:

  • Username: admin

  • Password: admin

Please make sure to change the default credentials, to avoid malicious attacks. You can change the admin password at Preferences → Security.

Changes made in the GUI do not immediately apply. Depending on the type of change different kinds of "Activate" buttons appear:

        → Full Reboot (hardware and network settings)

→ Restart of ISGW and call drops (PSTN Settings)

→ Applies immediately without call drops (SIP, Dialplan and Cloud settings)

Only after clicking on the activate button, the changes apply. It is useful to make the needed changes and activate them once the configuration is done.

Configuration path

To configure a beroNet Gateway there are a couple of steps to do. In most cases the configuration starts at "Hardware", where the physical parameters of each port are configured. The next step is to group the PSTN ports in "PSTN" that need to be used. Then SIP Accounts are created under "SIP". Finally the different entities are connected in the "Dialplan". The Dialplan defines, which calls should be forwarded from SIP to PSTN and vice versa, based on criteria like the dialled number or the CallerID. So the common steps are:

  1. Hardware Settings

  2. PSTN Groups

  3. SIP Accounts

  4. Dialplan Rules

Optionally one of the "Configuration Wizards" can be used for many scenarios.

Call Handling

Calls are handled by the ISGW service, which is configured through the WebGUI or through provisioning. ISGW communicates to the hardware through drivers. Every module has a separate hardware driver which has different settings depending on the type of technology. These settings can be configured in the Hardware section.

The physical connections are called ports. ISGW needs to initialise all the ports it should use, this can be configured by putting the ports into PSTN groups. The next step is to create SIP Accounts and finally the Dialplan rules define how the calls should be routed by ISGW.

Hardware

The modules are connected on the beroNet device to a flexible TDM Backplane, which allows sharing of synchronization clocks and bridging of audio-channels between modules and across devices which are connect via the PCM cable. The hardware section in the webGUI allows to understand which modules are present, to change the synchronization settings and to change technology related settings. 

Here you can see the graphical presentation of the interfaces (in this case BFT-Adapters are required to access all the technologies) and the types of modules that are installed.
Every change in the hardware section requires a red Activate which yields to a reboot.

Synchronization

It is critical to understand how the synchronization between the different ports, modules and devices should be configured to achieve the highest possible quality for the use case.

In most cases there should be a single synchronization source for one or more beroNet devices. The best results are achieved when receiving the synchronization from an external ISDN Provider through one BRI or PRI port. This synchronization can be shared with the other ports on the same module and with the other modules on the devices and also with another device and its modules via the PCM cable.

If no external synchronization is available, each module can create its own timing. Also in this scenario one module should be chosen as timing source and all the other modules and devices should receive their synchronization from this module to provide a shared timing.

Only in very rare cases it might be necessary to have separate synchronization sources on the same device with 2 modules. This might be the case when 2 different ISDN providers are used which have separated timing sources.

TDM Clock Master: 

Defines which module should be clock master for all other module slots All other modules will derive their timingfrom the clock master.

ALL - each module is clock master for itself. 
PCM - the external PCM Connector is clock master, so another beroNet gateway provides the timing. Thus no synchronization port needs to be defined here.
lif0-XXX - the first module is the clock master.
lif1-XXX - the second module is the clock master.
lif2-XXX - the third module is the clock master.

The FXS, FXO, LTE and GSM modules can not derive their timing by their interfaces, because these technologies don't provide timing sources. Thus these modules always have a local oscillator to create a timing if they are configured to be TDM Master. The ISDN modules can receive their timing from the ISDN Provider. Since they have multiple ports it is necessary to define which port should be used a primary synchronization source.

ISDN Settings

Each ISDN Port can be configured separately. The port can be set to te or nt mode, the protocol can be Point-to-Point or Point-to-Multipoint, the Line Termination can be enabled and a permanent layer 1 timer can be started. 
Furthermore you can set the ISDN call reference value IE to have a length of 2 instead of 1 with CRLEN2 and with EXTCID, you can set the ISDN Caller-ID IE to a length of 3 instead of 1.

Type:

The type defines whether the device will be te to be connected to an ISDN provider, or whether the port should be nt to be connected to a traditional ISDN PBX. The TE mode is mostly used when an IPBX should be connected to the ISDN network and the nt mode if a traditional PBX needs to be connected to a VoIP Provider. When switching the port from te to nt, the module switches the transmit and receive pins, so that no cross-over cable is required.

Analog Settings

When using FXS analog modules (i.e. BF4FXS) you have the following option:

You can choose between 49V and 89V ring voltage.


When using FXO analog modules (i.e. BF4FXO) you can set each country with own settings in terms of signals and tones.
(For Germany 1TR110_DE is often used.)

PCM Settings

When the PCM Master bridging is enabled the gateway is the PCM-Master (That means this module will generate the clock for all other slaves). You need to connect a PCM-Slave beroNet Gateway with a PCM cable via the PCM connector to enable the bridging between master and slave.

On the slave you need to set the -Master Settings- on all line interfaces to "slave". Then paste the IP-address of the master beroNet Gateway into the slave its PCM-Master IP-address field.

PSTN

The menu point PSTN gives you an overview about the ports which are provided by the installed modules you are using on this particular beroNet device. For each technology you will find a sub menu point, like 'ISDN PRI' / 'ISDN BRI' / 'Analog FXO' / 'Analog FXS' / 'LTE' or 'GSM'. The sub menu entries are dynamic, and you will only see these which are provided by your modules. These sub menu points or technologies can be grouped together in so called 'Port-Groups'. As you can see in the picture below, you can add, modify and delete 'Port-Groups' by clicking on the corresponding button.

ISDN PRI/BRI options

This chapter will explain the ISDN configuration possibilities and ISDN specific settings.

General ISDN PRI/BRI settings

The picture below shows you ISDN PRI / BRI 'Port-Groups' specific basic settings:

Group Name
Unique name of the 'Port-Group'

Ports
Ports which have been added to the 'Port-Group'

ChanSel
Channel Selection schemes: (Standard / Random / Round Robin) default: Standard
Standard - selects the next free channel in ascending order
Random - selects the next free channel at random
Round Robin - selects the next free channel base on the Round-Robin principle

Tone
ISDN Tones are categorised by country

Interdigit timeout
For every incoming call a interdigit collect timer will be started. After this specified timeout, without getting a digit, the call will be processed to the Dialplan.
Note: This Timer is only started if 'Overlap Dialing' is deactivated. (Default: 3 sec.)

Interdigit timeout initial
This Timer is the initial interdigit timer, that means before we got any digit. This Timer will be stopped after the first digit and the above mentioned Interdigit Timeout Timer will apply.
During this time a dial-tone will be generated. Note this Timer is only started if 'Overlap Dialing' is deactivated. (Default: 15 sec.)

Overlap Dialing
This Option will activate real Overlap Dialing, for instance in ISDN Environments. By activating this option the 'Interdigit' as well as the 'Interdigit timeout initial' Timer will be deactivated.

QSIG support
Enable or disable QSIG support

Link Down behaviour
In some countries like Cyprus the behaviour of ISDN PTP ports regarding Layer1 and Layer2 is different. They deactivate Layer 1 and Layer 2 after a while of inactivity.
With this option you can solve this issue.

Nothing - default
Pull Link Up (2s) - will try to get UP Links up to 2 seconds
Pull Link Up (once) - will try to get UP Links once

Country code
Country calling code with leading 00 or +, e.g. 0049 +49 for calling Germany
This field is required if you set new_source_auto for oad (Caller-ID)

City code
City calling code with a leading 0, e.g. 030 for calling Berlin
This field is required if you set new_source_auto for oad (Caller-ID)

Advanced ISDN PRI/BRI settings (More)

EC
This will activate or deactivate the onboard Hardware Echo canceler. default: on

EC tail length
EC tail length [0=8ms,1=16ms,2=24...,15=128ms] (default value is 15=128ms) 16 tabs each 8ms.

DAD Type of number
It's the 'Type of Number' in terms of ISDN for the Destination Address (DAD). The option defines the number format of the DAD for an outgoing call. Be aware that the remote end has to also support this feature. unknown, international, national, local, subscriber alphanumeric, abbreviated

OAD Type of Number
Type of Number'TON' is in terms of ISDN for the Originating Address (OAD). This options defines the number format of the OAD for an outgoing call. If you want to use 'CLIP_NO_SCREENING' you have to set this to international, national local subscriber alphanumeric, abbreviated depending on how you are going to send your OAD.

screening/presentation
screening/presentation these are the exact ISDN screening and presentation indicators. default: off screening: off and presentation: off means the callerID is presented but not screened (the remote end does see the callerID) screening: on and presentation: on means callerID presented but screened (the remote end does not see the callerID)

Bearer

Call Deflection
Call deflection is used to redirect calls on the provider site without using B-Channels on the berofix. If 'Call deflection' is enabled you can use SIP 302 'Move temporarily' to redirect the call on the provider site.

Clear on OAD
useful for dynamically hide the CallerID in direction of this 'Port-Group' (ISDN). For instance if before detects a call to this 'Port-Group' at which the OAD corresponds with CLIR_on_OAD (after the call left the dialplan), the CallerID will be hidden. That means the remote end doesn't see it. default: empty

Dialplan Source
The Dialplan Source is used as 'Source' for matching in the 'Dialplan'. That means if a call is initiated from this 'Port-Group' you can use 'Dialplan Source', to tell the Dialplan, which value should be used for the 'Source' in the Dialplan. Dialplan Source can have the following values OAD: originator address (default) OAD2 (OAD2 in case you have 2 OAD's you can choose with which value you want) Qsigname (Qsigname to use it at source in the Dialplan) Redirected_nr (redirected number)

none (use nothing for the OAD)
manual (use a constant string as OAD for calls to this 'Port-Group')

The dad (Callee ID) gives you the possibility to tell the beroNet Gateway, which field should be used for the DAD for calls to this 'Port-Group'. DAD (Callee ID) can use the the following fields:

SIP

By selecting the menu point SIP, you will be directed to the page containing all options regarding SIP. There are 2 menu-points, SIP and SIP Stacks which will be explained in detail in the next chapters.

SIP

In this chapter we will explain SIP specific configuration and settings. Under the menu point SIP you will get an overview about all SIP accounts.
As already mentioned in the chapter 'Port-Groups', you can add, modify and delete SIP accounts by clicking on the corresponding button.

SIP Configuration

A SIP account always consists of the following settings:

Name
Name you want to use for this SIP account. You can set it as you want, but it can help you with the assignment later.

SIP outbound proxy, SIP registrar and SIP domain
IP address of the SIP server (for instance your 3CX or Asterisk Server).
You can also set an alternative UDP port in the format sip.beronet.com:5061 if required (default is 5060)

If you want to connect this trunk to the SIP-Provider, you have to use the IP given by the Provider.

User
This username will be used as User Part in the SIP From Header. If you need to specify a different SIP From URL (sometimes called fromdomain) you can specify the SIP User in the form from_user@from_url by default the from_url is simply the server address.

If you're going to connect this trunk to the SIP-Provider, this is where the base-number should go.

Authentication user and secret
SIP Username and authentication password used for SIP authentication.

If you connect this trunk to the SIP-Provider, you have use the credentials given by the provider.

Match Type
The 'Match type' give you the possibility to choose which part of the from or To header the beroNet Gateway should use to match.

Note: The settings only match if you set the Match type in the relevant Dialplan to <Default SIP account>. It has the following options and meanings:

IP Address: By choosing this option, the IP-address from where the call is originated has to match to the 'Server address' of the SIP account, which has been chosen in the 'Server address' field.
From User: By choosing this option, additionaly to the IP-Adress, the SIP From_user part, of a call has to conform with the 'user' field of the SIP-account.
To User: Additionaly to the IP-address chosen in the server address field, the beroNet Gateway will match if the user part of the To Header conforms with the 'user' field of the SIP-account.
Contact User: Matches if the contact header conforms with the user field of the SIP-account.
Manual: with this option, you can set a manual address (IP-address) which should be used instead of an existing SIP-account. Matching is the same like described in 'IP Address' above. This field also could contain regular expressions. [192.168.2.15|192.2168.2.16]

Call Transfer Method

SIP Stack

SIP transport
You can choose between the following supported SIP transport modes:
UDP (SIP Transport via UDP)
TCP (SIP Transport via TCP)
TLS (SIP Transport via TCP with TLS and Certificate)

SIP Port
Defines the local SIP Port for this account. The default is 5060 which is shared with all SIP Accounts. 
The values can range from 1025 - 65535.

NAT options

Validate/Keepalive
When enabled, the gateway will regularly send OPTIONS packets for keepalive and monitoring of the remote peer. 
It checks if the link between the two connections is operating, thus preventing the link from being broken.
The interval in which the messages are sent is given in seconds. (default is every 30s)

Register
When enabled, the gateway will send out SIP REGISTER messages to this SIP-accounts server address.
The gateway will automatically changes the following header settings depending on this option:

Headerenableddisabled
Dialplan Sourcefrom_display
(match for display_name at incoming invites)

 from_user
(match for From_User at incoming invites)

From User Partaccount_username
(use account username as From_User for outgoing invites)
new_source
(use NewSource as From_User for outgoing invites)

new_source
(use NewSource from dialplan as From_Displayname for outgoing invites)


new_source
(use NewSource from dialplan as From_Displayname for outgoing invites)

The interval in which the registration attempts are sent is given in seconds. (default is every 300s)

Advanced SIP settings - Media

T.38 Support
Check for Fax Tones and tries a T.38 reinvite to make a reliable Fax-Over-IP Connection. The SIP device which is connected to the beroNet must support T.38. Most ATA's and some SIP SoftPBXs support T.38. Default is active.

mandatory: RTP/AVP session with crypto suites for SDP

Codecs
Defines which codecs are allowed and in which order they should be offered.

Advanced SIP settings - Call-Progress

Wait for cancel
When the PSTN releases a call with a proper reason and with in-band information, this setting will be reviewed.

If enabled the beroNet Gateway will not immediately send the corresponding SIP response, instead it will make the in-band audio information available, so that the user can hear this message. The beroNet Gateway will wait until the user cancels this call while providing the in-band audio. If it is disabled the beroNet Gateway will immediately finish the call by sending the corresponding SIP response that is mapped for the PSTN Release reason. See also the beroNet Gateway ISDN Cause/SIP Response map for details of this mapping. Default: enable.

Call progress table S2I
Call progress table SIP to ISDN You can define which Call Progress Table should be used for this SIP account. By default (if left empty) the beroNet Gateway build-in Call-Progress Table would be used.

Call progress table I2S
Call progress table ISDN to SIP You can define which Call Progress Table should be used for this SIP account. By default (if left empty) the beroNet Gateway build-in Call-Progress Table would be used.

Advanced SIP settings - Headers

IE on SIP
Information elements on SIP activates the possibility to send additional ISDN Information elements over SIP-Headers.

If set to active, the beroNet Gateway will encode ISDN Information Elements like the 'Bearer Capability', 'Type of Number' or the 'Release Cause' etc. as X-BF SIP Headers. the beroNet Gateway will also look for X-BF Headers on incoming SIP Messages to decode them into ISDN Information Elements. See Howto to use X-BF Headers for more details. Default: off.

Extra options
The below mentioned settings are mostly used and are directly outputted through the Webinterface. But the beroNet Gateway has a lot of more settings, which are used in very special scenarios. These settings can be found at additional configuration options.

SIP Stacks

Under SIP Stack you can set the following values:

Bind port
The port on which the beroNet device should listen for SIP traffic. Default is 5060

RTP port range
RTP port range which should be used for RTP traffic. Default is (5000-5059,5062-6000,6000-7000)

TOS RTP
Type of service for RTP traffic. Useful for prioritization of the RTP traffic. Default: 160

TOS SIP
Type of service for SIP traffic. Useful for prioritization of the SIP traffic. Default: 160

RTP port selection
Standard and RoundRobin-Scheduling

SIP transport
The beroNet devices support the following SIP transport modes:
UDP (SIP Transport via UDP)
TCP (SIP Transport via TCP)
TLS (SIP Transport via TCP with TLS and Certificate)

Dialplan

The Dialplan is one of the most important things to set up during the configuration of a beroNet device. The Dialplan defines rules concerning how calls should be routed under certain circumstances.
The beroNet Dialplan engine is based on regular expressions ('Howto RegEx') and reads the Dialplan entries from the top to the bottom. After the first match, the engine will leave the Dialplan and execute that rule. Therefore it is important to know that special dial plan rules should be placed on top while the general ones should be placed below them. This can be done by using the position arrows.

 As you can see you can add, modify, copy and delete a dial plan rule by pressing on the corresponding button on the right of the table Furthermore you can access the advanced options for a particular dial plan rule by pressing the 'tool icon', which is also on the right-hand side of the table. Above the table you can set some filters for the Dialplan table like 'direction' or 'entries per page' or even search for a special character inside all fields of a Dialplan rule.

As you can see that there are several columns. Before explaining the meaning of each column, it is important to know that some of these columns are matching criteria and the others are executing ones. Matching columns are taken into account to decide if a particular Dialplan rule matches while the executing columns would be executed when a dial plan rule has matched. Only if all matching columns are true a particular Dialplan rule will it be executed.


Matching Columns:

Direction: The direction of the call. Here you can set the direction a call has to be from for this rule to qualify and to where the call is to be routed. For instance in the first row you see that the “call” has to originate from SIP and will then be routed to Analog. In the the second row it is vice versa.

FromID: The ID from where the call is originated. Depending on the direction that is chosen, the FromID could be the name of a 'SIP-account', a 'PSTN-port-group' or a manual value like an IP-address.

Destination: Also called "Called ID" or DAD. This is the number which the caller dialled.

Source: Also called "CallerID" or OAD. This is the number of the device of the caller.

Execution Columns:

To ID: The ID where the call should be routed to. Depending on the direction this could be a particular 'PSTN-port' a 'PSTN-port-group', the name of a SIP-account or an IP-address

New Destination: The New Destination after the Dialplan rule has been executed (see 'Destination' above).
New Source: The new source after the Dialplan rule has been executed (see 'Source' above).

New Dialplan rule

If you want to add a new rule, you simply click on 'Add'. Here you can see that on the left-hand side you have all of the matching fields and on the right all of the executing fields.
Each matching field corresponds to one executing field, that means there is always a pair of both.


From direction/To direction
The first pair is the direction pair, consisting of the fields 'From direction' and 'To direction'. 'From direction' is the matching field and it checks from where the call originated while the 'To direction' field (executing field) makes necessary changes so that the call can be routed to where you would like it to go. In the picture above we have chosen the direction SIP-to-ISDN. Depending on which modules are plugged in, the fields 'From direction' and 'To direction' could have the following values:

SIP, Analog (FXS/FXO), ISDN (PRI/BRI), LTE or GSM

In other words if haven't plugged in a LTE module, you will not see the LTE option in 'From direction' and 'To direction' pair.
Note: You can combine every technology direction with each other except the direction SIP-to-SIP.

From Direction is set to (ISDN / Analog / LTE):
In this case the 'From ID' is a list of all configured PSTN port-groups indicated by their names. For instance if you select ISDN you will only see the ISDN port-groups in the list. Alternatively to the port-group you could also select a single port, identifiable by it's port number. But this port has to be a member of a port-group anyway, otherwise you won't be able to select it. All calls which originated from this single port or the port-group would match the criteria 'From ID'.

From Direction is set to SIP:
If 'From Direction' is set to SIP, the 'From ID' is a list of all SIP-accounts, configured on the beroNet Gateway, indicated by their 'Name' field. In this case the a new field called 'Match type' would appear. The 'Match type' give you the possibility to choose how the dialplan should match for the From_ID. The match type has the following options and meanings:

Default SIP account: By choosing this option, the SIP account has to match to the SIP Account. This is the default option.
From IP: By choosing this option, the IP-address from where the call is originated has to match to the 'Server address' of the SIP account, which has been chosen in the 'From ID' field.
From User: By choosing this option, additionally to the IP-Address (see 'From IP'), the SIP 'From_user part' of the a call has to match to the 'user' field of the SIP-account, which has been chosen in the 'From ID' field.
To User: By choosing this option, additionally to the IP-Address (see 'From IP'), the SIP 'To_user part' of the a call has to match to the 'user' field of the SIP-account, which has been chosen in the 'From ID' field.
Manual Address: By choosing this option, you can set a manual address (IP-address) which can be used instead of an existing SIP-account.  This field also could contain regular expressions e.g. [172.20.0.2|172.20.0.3]

To Direction is set to ISDN / Analog / LTE):
The To ID field is a bit easier, because it is the execution part. If 'To direction' set to PSTN (ISDN / Analog / LTE) a list of the corresponding configured PSTN ports groups or PSTN ports is shown and you can select the desired direction. If 'To direction' is set to SIP you can select one of the configured SIP accounts or enter a manual address as described above.

Destination / New Destination
This pair 'Destination / New Destination' is one of the most important matching criteria. The destination is the calledID (the number which was originally dialled) also named DAD, this means the number which enters the Dialplan. While the New Destination is the CallerID, when we leave the Dialplan. Both Destination and New Destination are based on regular expressions.

Source / New Source
This pair 'Source / New Source' very similar to the pair 'Destination / New Destination' but apply to the CallerID (OAD)

Comments
For each Dialplan rule you can leave a small comment. You can see the comment as a tooltip box in the 'Dialplan overview', when you hover over a Dialplan rule with the mouse.

Active
Each Dialplan rule can be active or inactive. You can see a deactivated rule in the Dialplan overview, it will be indicated as inactive by a grey background.

Advanced Dialplan options

When you have created a Dialplan rule you can customise it to be more advanced by clicking on the tool icon on the right-hand side of the dial plan overview page (the third icon on the right). Depending on what is set for 'From' and 'To Direction' you will have corresponding buttons to reach the more advanced options for ISDN / Analog / LTE / GSM and SIP.

The picture above shows you the advanced options, in this case for ISDN. These settings are exact the same like described in the chapter 'Advanced ISDN PRI / BRI options' , which are attached to the 'ISDN Port Group'. In the Dialplan you have the possibility to make special settings for one particular rule. This means on the 'ISDN-Port-Group' you have the default settings while in the Dialplan we can overwrite one or more values for a specific Dialplan rule. In the right column of the above picture you can see the default button. By default this is activated.

For instance if we check the option EC (Echo canceling) you will see that the value EC itself and the default column are activated. This means that the default on the ISDN-port-group for the option EC is activated and the dial plan inherits this value. To change this particular value you have to deactivate the 'default' option and then deactivate the value EC, as you can see in the next picture.

This should illustrate how you can make very specific Dialplan settings to particular rules.

Note: The dial plan always has the highest priority. For instance in the above mentioned example EC is deactivated in the dial plan but activated in the 'ISDN-port-group'. If the dial plan rule matches, the value EC would be 'off' although this value is set to be 'on' by the ISDN-port-group. All other options (Analog / GSM / LTE / SIP) follow the same mechanism as described here. For more information please read their respective Part.

Examples of Dialplan rules

The best way to explain the beroNet device handles Dialplan rules, is to show you some examples.
In Case you didn't read the 'HowTo RegEx', before we start showing you examples, this might help to understand them:

() will make everything contained by parentheses referable. You can refer to it by the use of the \<DIGIT> i.e. \1 for the first parentheses \2 for the next etc.
. is a special symbol that matches any single symbol
* is a multiplier that changes the statement after which it stands (i.e. .* would mean <any_symbol>AND<any_number_of> which would mean literally any string of any length)
(.*) therefore would cause anything to match and make it referable by its respective \<DIGIT>. This is also the default value.

Example 1: Incoming call from SIP with the following settings
SourceIP: 172.20.0.1 CallerID: 2593890 CalledID: 025938912

Dialplan entry values:
Direction: “SIP->ISDN” FromID: “.*” matches anything ToID: “(g:te)” routed to ISDN-port-group g:te Destination: “0(.*)” matches any calledID starting with '0' New Destination: “\1 “ \1 will reference to parameter 1 ( \1 the value in the first parenthesise of destination ) Source: “(.*)” matches any callerID New Source: “\1 “ \1 is the value in the first parenthesize of source

With these settings the the “Call” will be routed to ISDN-port-group “g:te”. The calledID will be changed to 25938912, that means the first '0' will be stripped while the callerID will routed transparent and still is 2593890.

Example 2: Incoming call from SIP with the following settings
SourceIP: 172.20.0.1 CallerID: 12 CalledID: 0176242XXXXX.

Dialplan entry values:
Direction: “SIP->ISDN” FromID: “172.20.0.1” matches if source IP-address is 172.20.0.1 ToID: “1” routed to ISDN-port 1 Destination: “0176(.*)” matches if calledID is starting with 0176 New Destination: “0049176\1” will cut 0176 from calledID and add 0049176 to the calledID, followed by reference to parameter 1 Source: “(..)” matches callerIDs with exact 2 digits. New Source: “25938912” CallerID will be overwritten by 25938912

With these settings the the “Call” would be routed to ISDN-port 1”. The CalledID will be modified to 0049176XXXXX. The CallerID will be changed to 25938912.

Example 3: Incoming call from ISDN with the following settings
ISDNPort: g:teports CallerID: 0176242XXXX CalledID: 25938912

Dialplan entry values:
Direction: “ISDN->SIP” FromID: ”g:teports” matches if the call is originated from the ISDN-port-group named 'teports' ToID: “p:mysipserver” routed to the SIP account named 'mysipserver' Destination: ”259389([0-8][0-9])” matches all numbers starting with 259389 followed by 2 digits in the range from [00-89] New Destination: “\1” will cut 259389 from calledID and add the 2 digits referenced by parameter 1 Source “(.*)” matches any callerID New Source: “\1 “ \1 is the value in the first parenthesise of 'Source'

With these settings the the “Call” would be routed to SIP account p:mysipserver. The CalledID will be changed to 12. The CallerID will routed transparent and still is 0176242XXXX.

Example 4: Incoming call from ISDN with the following settings
ISDNPort: 1 CallerID: 12 CalledID: 02593890

Dialplan entry values:
Direction: “ISDN->SIP” FromID: ”1” matches the call is originated from the ISDN-port 1 ToID: “p:mysipserver” routed to the SIP account named 'mysipserver' Destination: ”0([2-9])(.*))” matches all numbers starting with 0. The second digit has to be in range[2-9] followed by the any digits. New Destination: “\1\2” will cut 0 from calledID and add the parameter 1 followed by parameter 2 Source “(.*)” will match any callerID New Source: “\1 “ \1 is the value in the first parenthesise of 'Source' field

With these settings the the “Call” would be routed to SIP account p:mysipserver. The CalledID will be changed to 2593890. The CallerID is untouched.

With the above examples you should be able to handle almost every situation in the real world. If this is not enough and you need some special things, feel free to implement more complex regular expressions. More information about this can be found in the corresponding chapters.

Active Calls

This tab will give you an Overview of the currently active calls with the information seen in the picture below. This example is an incoming test call through the gateway from ISDN to SIP.

Ports Statistic

Here you can see statistics about the ports and dialplan directions that go through the gateway.

Backup and Restore

You can backup the configuration of berofix to an external file by just downloading it. These backup files could be used to restore the settings of berofix.
Be aware that this could be depending on the berofix firmware version. So if you try to restore a backup file from an older version of the firmware, the restore process could fail.
The backup is stored in a .config.xml file.

Firmware Update

You have to reboot your device in Update-Mode in order to install a firmware image. 
Once rebooted, you can always find the newest available firmware here.
Don't forget to backup your configuration before you install a new Firmware in case something doesn't work as intended.
Older firmware, in case you need to downgrade, can be installed here too, but must be downloaded first from the following link: berofix firmware


Dialplan Debug

This page is to give the user the opportunity to debug the dialplan if something is not working as expected.

Full Trace

The menu point “Full Trace” will give you the opportunity to report us problems with the berofix card on a defined way. This will help us to reproduce, analyse and fix your problem quite fast. On all ISDN Ports you can start a so called “Fulltrace” by pressing the Button “Start"”. By starting the debug process the system will start tracing all ISDN and SIP protocol elements. After you have finished your tests you can press “stop” and download the trace file. All relevant information about the call-flow are stored in this debug file.

Send this debug file in a ticket with a small description about your test and we will be able to reproduce and hopefully solve your problem.

Using SIP-to-SIP and SBC Functionality

You can have up to 2 simultaneous SIP-to-SIP calls, but you can increase that number by adding a SIP-to-SIP license on the gateway to connect more SIP peers.

How to order and install a SIP-to-SIP licence on the gateway

Each SIP-to-SIP licence is linked to a single gateway. We therefore need the serial number of the gateway in order to create a licence for it.
To find out the serial number of your gateway, go to Management → Info. 

You have to Include the serial number of your gateway in the license order you place at your local distributor.
You will then receive a file with the name "isgw_SerialNumberOfTheGateway.licence". 

To install the license in your gateway, go to Preferences → Miscellaneous → SIP to SIP License and upload the licence.

How to use your SIP-to-SIP licence

Once your license has been uploaded on the gateway, you can connect the SIP peers in the Dialplan. 

  1. Create two SIP peers or accounts under SIP → SIP
  2. Create dialplan rules to link both SIP peers under Dialplan

Available licences and upgrades
