You don’t have to replace your entire phone system as you move to unified communications. Cisco VG Series Gateways help you migrate at your own pace and budget by taking full advantage of the investments you have already made. Cisco VG Gateways allow you to enjoy the benefits of unified communications while using your existing analog phones and fax machines.
The Cisco VG350 High-Density Analog Voice Gateway enables an IP telephony solution to continue using traditional analog devices while taking advantage of the productivity afforded by IP infrastructure.
Cisco VG350 Analog Gateway:
- Standalone solution for high-density for deployments of up to 160 analog ports.
- Provides mix and match modules for high density long or short loop lengths solutions
- Increase flexibility with additional slots available for FXS and FXO ports
- Improve end-user experience using advanced digital signal processor technology to reduce background noise and prevent acoustic shock
- Advance power management using Cisco EnergyWise technology
The Cisco Unified Communications portfolio of voice and IP communications products and applications enables organizations to communicate more effectively - helping them to streamline business processes, reach the right resource the first time, and improve revenue sales and profitability. The Cisco Unified Communications portfolio is a critical part of the Cisco Business Communications Solution - an integrated solution for organizations of all sizes that also includes network infrastructure, security, and network management products, wireless connectivity, and a lifecycle services approach, along with flexible deployment and outsourced management options, end-user and partner financing packages, and third-party communications applications.
The Cisco VG350 High-Density Analog Gateway is a Cisco IOS® Software-based analog phone gateway. It connects analog phones, fax machines, modems, and speakerphones to an enterprise voice system based on Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM). The tight integration with the IP-based phone system is advantageous for increased manageability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. Businesses can also use the Cisco VG350 with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express to effectively augment an integrated services router (ISR) environment. Either topology environment will support business needs for high concentration of analog voice ports for modem calls, fax calls, and analog supplementary services
The Cisco VG350 offers Cisco IOS Software manageability on analog phone lines to enable them to be used as extensions to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager or Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express system. The Cisco VG350 is offered in a 19-inch rack-mount chassis form.
Cisco VG Series Gateways
The Cisco VG350, VG224, VG204XM, and VG202XM are part Cisco IOS software-based VG series stand-alone analog voice gateways. The Cisco VG350 is a high-density 160-port gateway, the Cisco VG224 is a 24-port gateway, and the Cisco VG204XM and VG202XM are low-density 4- and 2-port gateways, respectively. These gateways connect analog phones, fax machines, modems, and speakerphones to an enterprise voice system based on Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM). Having these devices tightly integrated with the IP-based phone system is advantageous for increased manageability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness (refer to Figure 5 later in this document). Commercial businesses can also use these gateways with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express to effectively augment an integrated-services-router (ISR) environment. Both topology environments support business needs ranging from high to low concentrations of analog voice ports for modem calls, fax calls, and analog supplementary services.
The Cisco VG350, VG224, VG204XM, and VG202XM offer Cisco IOS Software manageability on analog phone lines so that you can use them as extensions to your Cisco or 3rd party IP call control solution. The Cisco VG350 and VG224 offer 19-inch rack-mount chassis, and the Cisco VG204XM and VG202XM offer desktop form-factor chasses with a fanless design.
