FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide

Managing PRI gateways

VoIP PRI gateways seamlessly connect your legacy telephony infrastructure, made up of PRI (T1, E1) or BRI lines, to IP networks. Businesses with legacy phone equipment (such as a TDM PBX) can use PRI gateways to connect to SIP trunking services without having to spend money altering their current network infrastructure.

The FortiVoice FVG-GT01 and GT02 gateways can be auto discovered by the FortiVoice unit once they connect to it. You can also manually add gateways to be managed by the FortiVoice unit.

A GT01/02 gateway has 1 span (PRI port). By default, the single span is mapped to one trunk. However, you may reassign the span to multiple trunks if required. Before adding any span to a trunk, you need to free the span in the default trunk accordingly.

After creating a trunk gateway, you can manually add it into the dial plan to make it work. For more information, see Configuring inbound dial plans and Configuring outbound dial plans.
