Congratulations on receiving yourSBC 5000 series server!

Below is a summary of key steps needed to get yourSBC up and ready for provisioning.


Create an IP plan

This plan lays out what the IP address the SBC 5000 will use for its management ports (2 ports per unit), media ports (4 per SBC5200 and 2 per SBC5100), and its next hop router.

The media ports are used for SIP and RTP traffic. Complete the Configuration Questionnaire and IP Plan.

Install the Hardware

See Installing SBC 5000 Series Hardware for step-by-step instructions.



Configure the Field Service Port and Management Port IP address

The Field Service Port (FSP) is an Ethernet port located on the back of the SBC. This port allows you to access the SBC Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) web page.

The BMC allows for system monitoring, power control, and configuring the Management Ports of the SBC. See Configuring the SBC Platform for step by step instructions.


Install SBC Application software

This should be done from the Platform Manager Web page. See Installing SBC Application Software for step-by-step instructions.


You are now ready to configure your SBC for processing!

A lot of information is needed to configure your platform. Use the Configuration Questionnaire and IP Plan to help manage this information.
