FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide

Managing FXS gateways

FXS gateways connect traditional PBX phone lines to a VoIP phone system or provider. To connect the FXO ports to the Internet or a VoIP system, you need an FXS gateway in between.

The FortiVoice FVG-GS16 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.

For FXS gateway deployment information, see FortiVoice FXS Gateway Deployment Guide.
