FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide

Managing FortiVoice Gateways, Local Survivability, and Firmwares

A managed gateway is one of the FortiVoice Gateways that either contains FXS, FXO, or PRI ports that handles calls for the FortiVoice phone system. Gateway Management enables auto-discovery of other FortiVoice gateways on the network and offers remote device management from a centralized FortiVoice phone system. Gateways will still need to be configured for network Setting and administrator passwords, but all other configurations will be received from the FortiVoice unit.

For information on gateway auto-discovery, see Viewing unmanaged gateways.

FVE-100E and larger systems can manage gateways.
