l Hardware data defines physical hardware and closely related functions. It is the basic data
of the UAP8100 MGW. Configuration of hardware data is the basis of configuring other
data of the UAP8100 MGW. Therefore, configuring hardware data is the first procedure
for data configuration.

p [Type of clock signal of external synchronous output]: The output clock signals of
UAP8100 MGW include “2.048 Mbit/s” and “2.048 MHz”. Its value depends on
the clock signal type that clock-receiving equipment needs

l VirtualMedia Gateway (VMGW) function divides a physicalMGW into multiple different logical
VMGWs. Each VMGW is identified by VMGW ID and managed by differentMGC. The system can
allocate bearer resources of the MGW equipment to different virtualMGWs in exclusive or resource
sharingmode to improve the flexibility of the equipment.
l VMGW ID: Refers to the uniform logical number of a VMGW. 16 VMGWs at most.
l VMGW MID Type: MGW can adopt IP address, domain name or device name to identify one
VMGW MID type.
p When the VMGW MID adopts the “Domain name” type, it is in the format of “Domain
name: Port No.”, for example, “www.UAP8100 MGW.net: 5555”. The domain name of the
UAP8100MGW and the local port No. used to set up the H.248 link are recommended.
p When the VMGW MID adopts the “IP address” type, it is in the format of “IP address: Port
No.”, for example, “10.110.80.132: 5555. The IP address of the gateway control interface
and the local port No. used to set up the H.248 link are recommended.
p When the VMGW MID adopts the “Device name” type, it is in the text format, for example,
l WhenMGW interconnectswith MGC, the VMGW MID often adopts the “IP address” type.
p No matter which VMGW MID type is adopted, ensure that it is consistent with the
Equipment ID parameter configured through the ADD MGW command at the MGC side.
Otherwise, the gateway can not register normally.
p No matter which VMGW MID Type you select, you need to confirm only one point that
VMGW MID must be consistent with that of MGC side.
l Command: SET VMGW
l Sample: Set a virtual media gateway: the virtual media gateway No. is 15, the virtual media
gateway MID is "10.110.80.148:5555", and the ID type is IP:
l SET VMGW: VMGWID=15, MIDTYPE=IP, MID="10.110.80.148:5555", CONFIRM=Y;
l For a specified VMGW, you need to configure its home MGC.
l You can configure a VMGW with 3 MGCs at most, one of which must be, and only one is,
the master MGC. At any time, the VMGW can only be under the control of one MGC. The
VMGW will switch to the control of the slave MGC only when the master MGC fails or
communication between VMGW and the master MGC is abnormal.
l VMGW ID: Refers to the uniform logical number of a VMGW and indicates for which
VMGW you will configure the MGC.
l MGC No.: Refers to the uniform logical number of a MGC within the VMGW. You can
configure three MGCs at most for a VMGW.
l MGC MID Type: Can adopt the three types of IP address, domain name and device name
to identify a MGC.
l Command：ADD MGC
l Sample: Add an MGC for VMGW 1: media gateway controller No. is 1, media gateway
controller MID type is IP, media gateway controller MID is 10.110.80.150:6666, and
master/slave flag is SLAVE.
l ADD MGC: VMGWID=1, MGCIDX=1, MIDTYPE=IP, MID="10.110.80.150:6666",
l To establish a H248 signaling link between a designated VMGW and a designated MGC.
l H248 signaling link No.: All the H.248 signaling links should be uniformly numbered
l VMGW ID and MGC ID: Indicate between which VMGW and MGC the H.248 signaling link
l Transfer protocol type: Refers to the transport layer protocol type to sustain H.248
signaling link. It can be UDP, TCP, SCTP or IMA. This parameter shall be consistent with
the Transmission Protocol Type parameter of command SET H248PARA. When the
UAP8100 MGW is interconnected with the UAP8100 MGC of Huawei, the UDP is usually
used to sustain H.248 links.
l Peer IP Address, Peer Port No., Local IP Address and Local Port No.: Establishing a
complete link includes configuration of source address + source port No. and destination
address + destination port No. Because the four parameters together identify an H.248
signaling link uniquely, the four parameters of one link cannot be completely the same
with those of another link.
l Command: ADD H248LNK
l Sample: ADD H248LNK: LINKID=43, VMGWID=13, MGCIDX=0, TT=UDP,

Binary by default. It shall be consistent with the H.248 protocol codec type of the
l Transmission Protocol Type: Refers to the protocol type on the transport layer for bearer of
H.248 protocol. It can be UDP, TCP, SCTP or IMA. This parameter shall be consistent with
the H.248 transmission protocol type of the interconnecting MGC. The default value is
UDP, which is also the common protocol to sustain H.248 signaling link between UAP8100
MGW and MGC.
l Authentication Type: Refers to the authentication type of H.248 packet intermediate
authentication header in non-IPSEC mode. It can be No Authentication Header or HMAC.
It is No Authentication Header by default.

l Sample: Set H.248 protocol parameters for the virtual media gateway 15, H.248 protocol
codec type is binary codec, transport protocol type is UDP protocol, authentication type is
HMAC based intermediate authentication header, HMAC type is MD5 abstract algorithm,
authentication key is "123456". Do not set the other H.248 protocol parameters.

Tx and Rx line code format as HDB3:
l SET E1PORT: FN=1, SN=3, SPN=0, FS=CRC_MULTIGRAME, TXCS=HDB3, RXCS=HDB3;
l Add timeslots for interface boards. TDM interface board type can be E32 S2L. After this
command is executed, the corresponding relationship between physical timeslot and TID,
VMGW ID, and trunk type should be configured. Only after the configuration, can the
timeslots bear services.
l The information of board type and board No. specified should be recorded in the slot
l An E32 has up to 1024 physical timeslots. So if the board type is set to E32, the end TID
minus start TID should be smaller than 1024.
l There is only one relay type within a relay range, the default value is Extern.
p Inside for the protection channels in a 1:N backup protection group
p Extern in other cases, for example, if the UAP8100 MGW interconnects with the
l You must configure VMGW at first, and then configure TDM slots.
l Command: ADD TDMIU
l Sample: Add timeslots for an interface board. The board No. is 0, board type is E32, start
TID is 0, end TID is 512, VMGW ID is 0, and relay type is inside:
l Add TDM inside timeslots with TID being from 0 to 512 .
