Use this command to configure Gateway signaling ports for a specified zone. For additional routing details, see Routing Mechanisms page.

GW signaling port limitations:

  • Create the GW signaling port under the default address context and within the 'defaultSigZone'.
  • GW signaling port must use an ID of "1".


The SBC 52x0 and SBC 7000 systems support creating IP Interface Groups containing sets of IP interfaces that are not "processor friendly" (i.e. carried on physical Ethernet ports served by separate processors). However, restrictions exist regarding the usage of such Interface Groups.

(This ability does not apply to the SBC 51x0 and SBC 5400 systems which have only two physical media ports. IP interfaces from the two physical ports may be configured within the same IP Interface Groups without restriction.)

For complete details, refer to Configuring IP Interface Groups and Interfaces.

Command Parameters

Table : Zone Gateway Signaling Port Parameters






1-23 characters

The name of the zone. For GW-to-GW calls, zone must be “defaultSigZone”.

You can configure signaling, media, and control for a zone in the address context.

Zone name must be unique across all address contexts




Gateway (GW) signaling   ports for this zone. Enter an index number for this port, and select parameters:

  •   ipAddress – IP Address of the Gateway Signal Listen Port, either in IPv4 or IPv6 format.
An IPv4-mapped IPv6 address is not allowed.
  • ipInterfaceGroupName – Name of IP interface group used by this gateway signaling port.
  • mode – The operational mode for this gateway signaling port.
    • inService (default)
    • outOfService
  • portNumber – TCP Port number of gateway signaling port
      (default = 2569).
  • role – Role of the gateway signal listening port.
    • primary – (default) Create a listening port for Gateway signaling traffic.
    • secondary – An alternate port used for listening only and cannot be used to establish new gateway signal links.
  • state – Administrative state of gateway listening port.  
    • disabled (default)
    • enabled
  • No labels
