Gateway management

FortiVoice can manage the following three types of gateways:

  • FortiVoice foreign exchange office (FXO) gateway - This gateway works in conjunction with the FortiVoice phone system, an IP private branch exchange (IP PBX), to expand resources and support additional analog phone lines. With the FortiVoice FXO gateway, you connect your analog phone lines to your FortiVoice phone system. For details about deploying an FXO gateway, see the FortiVoice FXO Gateway Deployment Guide.

  • FortiVoice foreign exchange subscriber (FXS) gateway - This gateway works in conjunction with the FortiVoice phone system to expand resources and support additional analog phone extensions. With the FXS gateway, you can connect your traditional analog phones and fax machines to a FortiVoice phone system. For details about deploying an FXS gateway, see the FortiVoice FXS Gateway Deployment Guide.
  • FortiVoice primary rate interface (PRI) gateway - This gateway works in conjunction with your FortiVoice phone system to expand resources and support additional phone lines. With a PRI gateway, you connect your legacy telephony infrastructure composed of PRI (T1 or E1) digital lines to a FortiVoice phone system. For details about deploying a PRI gateway, see the FortiVoice PRI Gateway Deployment Guide.
