Why ECOTEL
®
GSM gateways?
Calls from the fixed network to GSM networks are significantly more
expensive than in-network calls (GSM to GSM). ECOTEL
®
GSM gateways
replace expensive fixed-to-mobile calls with more cost-effective mobile-mobile calls.
How ECOTEL
®
ISDN works
ECOTEL
®
ISDN is operated on either a separate external S0 interface of
the PBX, or in LCR mode it is looped into the local loop of the PBX orconnected to an S0 extension.
If you connect ECOTEL
®
ISDN via a separate external S0 interface, the
first part of the least cost routing will be handled on the PBX. In other
words, the PBX will route calls to the gateway only if they are destined for
GSM networks. The gateway then routes these calls in a second step to
the proper GSM channel depending on the actual GSM network.
On the other hand, in LCR mode all calls from the PBX pass via
ECOTEL
®
ISDN. Depending on the number that is dialed and the routing
information preset in the gateway, the gateway will route the calls eitherto the ISDN fixed network or to the mobile radio networks.
If you connect ECOTEL
®
ISDN to an S0 extension of the PBX, this exten
-
sion can be dialed from another other extension. ECOTEL
®
ISDN then
plays an announcement pr
ompting the caller to dial the number of the
mobile subscriber
. The gateway then connects the call. If the PBX is
capable of routing calls to an extension, the manual dialing step can be
eliminated.
ECOTEL
®
VoIP
ECOTEL
®
VoIP provides eight SIP channels. This enables connection of
the gateway via IP so that calls can be routed via IP networks. The gate-way can manage up to eight dif
fer
ent SIP pr
oxies or SIP pr
oviders. It can
also log into a SIP server as a client or directly connect multiple SIP
phones. Alternatively, ECOTEL
®
VoIP can be connected to the PBX
system via two S0 inter
faces (like ECOTEL
®
ISDN).
ECOTEL
®
GSM gateways have been used for many years with all dif-
ferent types of Siemens HiCom aand HiPath systems. ECOTEL
®
ISDN and ECOTEL
®
VoIP are certified for “HiPath ready“ with
Siemens HiPath 2000, 3000 and 4000.

How are ECOTEL
®
GSM gateways operated on your
Siemens HiPath system?
Configuration 1: “S0 external”
(with synchr
onization to separate S0 or NTBA)
ECOTEL
®
on the external S0 interface of the PBX:
All external calls from
the PBX that are destined for the ISDN fixed network are routed by the
PBX via the external S0-1 interface to the NTBA. All calls from the PBX
that are destined for the GSM network are routed by the PBX via the
external S0-2 interface to the ECOTEL
®
.
Operating with HiPath 2000/3000 ECOTEL
®
has to synchronize with the
PBX. The female connector BRI1 TE must be connected to the NTBAand the BRI1 interface must be configured in TE (terminal equipment)
mode.
Operation:
The calling party dials the desired number from an extension.
If a GSM number is dialed (e.g. 015.../ 016.../017... in Germany), the
PBX routes the call via the S0-2 interface. ECOTEL
®
then establishes the
connection to the mobile radio network via a SIM car
d for the selected
GSM pr
ovider. The calling party is not aware that the gateway is being
used.

Configuration 2: “2x S0 external”
(with synchronization via layer 1 to S0 external)
ECOTEL
®
on two external S0 ports of the PBX:
All external calls from the
PBX that are destined for the ISDN fixed network are routed by the PBX
via the external S0-1 port to the NTBA. All calls from the PBX that are
destined for the GSM network are routed by the PBX via the external
S0-2 and S0-3 ports to ECOTEL
®
.
Operating with HiPath 2000/3000 ECOTEL
®
has to synchronize with the
PBX. With ECOTEL
®
ISDN 2-2x and ECOTEL
®
VoIP, both S0 ports can be
configured in NT mode. To allow ECOTEL
®
to still receive the clock from
the PBX, the L1 mode must be set to “terminal equipment” for both
ISDN interfaces. The L2 and L3 mode must be set to “network”. With
some PBX systems, it is necessary in certain cases to set L1 to “net-
work” and L2 and L3 to “terminal equipment”.
ECOTEL
®
ISDN2-140 gets the clock via two S0 ports from the NTBA to
which the PBX is also connected. The S0 ports on ECOTEL
®
(BRI1) must
be configured in TE mode (see configuration 1).

port of the PBX (PTMP exchange port)
: All external calls from the PBX
pass via ECOTEL

whether to route a call via the ISDN fixed network or via the GSM net-
work.
Operation:

Configuration 4: “Extension”
ECOTEL
®
on an S0 extension of the PBX:
The calling party determines how
the call is routed. If the caller wishes to make a GSM call, the extension
where ECOTEL
®
is connected is dialed.
Operation:
When dialing manually, the calling party dials the number of
the extension where ECOTEL
®
is connected. An announcement prompts
the caller to enter the number to be dialed in the GSM network. ECOTEL
®
then establishes the connection.
If the PBX is capable of routing calls to extensions, manual dialing of the
extension can be eliminated. The calling party is not aware that the gate-way is being used.

Setup using the routing wizard
Her
e is an example for the routing entry:
Route fr
om BRI2 (incoming from the PBX) all destination numbers
beginning with 016... to GSM channel 1
Setup directly in the routing table
Tools > Start > Routing Table
• Call with the
routing wizard
button
• Select
Route a call
in the ‘Action’ field
• Select ISDN2 in the ‘from port’ field and use the
right cursor key to confirm the selection
• Enter 016* in the field ‘with dialed number’
• Select GSM 1 in the ‘towards port’ field and use the
right cursor key to confirm the selection
• Use the Add new line button to add the entry to the
list
• This corresponds to the following entry:
(oI2d016*#) n
G1:d
You can also configure the same routing without the
routing wizard by using the routing commandsdescribed in the ECOTEL
®
manual (see Chapter 5):
Examples:
Calls from BRI2 (PBX) with destination number 017...
go to GSM:
(oI2d017*#) n G:d
All r
emaining calls fr
om BRI2 (PBX) go to V
oIP (via SIP
line 1):
(oI2d*#) n V1:d
All calls from GSM go to BRI2 (PBX):

Optimizing the call setup time
The adjoining r
outing entries are equivalent. “*” is replaced here by “?”,
but the number of “?” characters must exactly equal the number of
digits in the telephone numbers. The routing entry using “?”instead of
“*” produces a shorter dialing time. Please remember that in Germany
there are 11- and 12-digit mobile radio numbers.
Routing entries for mobile radio networks in Germany
Routing based on provider codes
Instead of specifying the exact GSM channel (G1, G2, G3, ...), you can
use G{<provider code>}. If you use this routing technique, the admini-
strator no longer needs to keep track of which SIM cards are used for
which channel. Calls are automatically routed to a channel for which a
SIM card for the relevant carrier is registered.
If you would like to route all calls with the prefix 0170 to T-Mobile SIM
cards, you can use the following line:
(oId0170???????) n G{26201}:d
Or, if rerouting to the local loop is required, use this:
(oId0170???????)
n
G{26201}I1:d
(If there is not a T-Mobile SIM card registered, the call will be made via
ISDN port 1.)
(oI2d017*#) n G:d

Routing examples
Standar
d routing for configuration 1
a) The PBX routes all GSM calls via an external S0 port to ECOTEL
®
.
ECOTEL
®
makes the calls via the GSM channels. Incoming calls to
ECOTEL
®

s GSM channels are routed to the PBX via the BRI2 interface.
b) Calls can also be routed via a specific GSM channel, e.g. all calls with
a T-Mobile prefix are routed via GSM channel 1 and any other calls are
routed via GSM channel 2.
The
standard routing for configuration 2
is the same as configuration 1,
except that I2 is replaced by I.
Standard routing for configuration 3
a) The PBX routes all calls via the external S0 port to ECOTEL
®
. ECOTEL
®
routes the GSM calls via the GSM channels and all ISDN calls via BRI1
to the NTBA.
Incoming calls to ECOTEL
®
’s GSM channels are routed to the PBX via
the BRI2 interface.
b) Calls can also be routed via a specific GSM channel, e.g. all calls with
a Vodafone prefix are routed via GSM channel 1 and any other GSM callsare routed via GSM channel 2. All ISDN calls are routed via BRI1 to the
NTBA.
The order of the routing entries determines the priority, i.e. the first entry
has the highest priority.
Standard routing for configuration 4
a) ECOTEL
®
is connected to an extension of the PBX. The calling party
accesses ECOTEL
®
by dialing its extension and then uses DTMF to post-
dial the number of the GSM subscriber
. ECOTEL
®
makes the calls via the
GSM channels. Incoming calls to ECOTEL
®
’s GSM channels are connec-
ted to an extension of the PBX via the BRI1 inter
face.
b) Calls can also be r
outed via a specific GSM channel, e.g. all calls with
an O2 prefix are routed via GSM channel 1 and any other calls are rou-
ted via GSM channel 2.

Settings for adaptive rerouting*:
In this example, adaptive r
erouting is automatically activated. Any exten-
sions that attempt a call but do not manage to reach the external num-
ber are saved. The list entry is deleted if a call is made successfully at a
later point in time between the extension and the external number. All
list entries are deleted after 60 minutes.
Smooth routing of call backs
and incoming calls using
adaptive rerouting*
Further savings potential
If a GSM gateway is operated on the PBX, incoming mo-
bile calls can be routed to the PBX via the gateway. Assu-
ming a reasonable pricing plan for calls, the cost of calls
requiring a mobile radio connection to the GSM gateway
will be very low. ECOTEL
®
gateways offer three options for
forwarding calls from the GSM gateway to the desired
extension:
1) The caller post-dials the extension number.
2) The caller is connected to a preset number, e.g. the
company’s switchboard.
3) The gateway automatically connects the caller to the
extension that last attempted to reach the caller (adap-
tive rerouting, last agent call).

VoIP with
SIP providers
Settings in the “Gateway Configuration”
Example:
You would like to make calls via the VoIP provider Dus.net to other users
in the Dus.net network and in the public switched telephone network.Y
ou would also like to allow incoming calls via Dus.net.
SIP Interface > Line x
(1) ECOTEL
®
inserts the content of the first field
(“Domain name”) into SIP packets. The next two
entries (“Proxy name” and “Registrar name”)
indicate the names of the servers to which ECOTEL
®
VoIP sends the INVITE and REGISTER
packets. In this example, all of these fieldsshould be set to “voip.dus.net”.
(2) The username from the VoIP provider should be
entered as the “username” and “identifier”. If
the VoIP provider also uses an ID for authenti-
cation that is different from the username, it
should be entered as the “identifier” instead of
the username. Enter the password in the “pass-
word” field.
A fixed network number is also pr
ovided in many
cases where the line can be reached. This is not
required in ECOTEL
®
VoIP.
IP Connection
(3) If ECOTEL
®
is operated behind a NAT device, e.g.
a (DSL) router, you must indicate a STUN server.
VoIP providers typically make this available. Inthis example, we use ”stun.dus.net”.
