Congratulations on acquiring your SBC Software Edition system!

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

Create an IP plan

An IP Plan helps you to gather configuration details, such as the IP addresses the management port, HA port and two media ports for SBC SWe Virtual Machine (VM). The media ports are used for SIP and RTP traffic.

Refer to Creating IP Plan for SBC SWe for help with completing an IP plan.

Configure your SWe environment

Before creating a Virtual Machine and installing SBC SWe images, you must create the virtual/cloud environment on the host or hosts allocated for the SBC SWe.

To get started, refer to the page applicable to your environment:

Create a VM for SBC

This step involves creating a VM and allocating resources, and configuring a datastore to contain the  Operating System (OS) and Application software.

Refer to the page applicable to your environment for details:

Install SBC Application

Refer to the page applicable to your environment for step-by-step instructions to install the SBC application from the Embedded Management Application (EMA):

Install License Files

Install SBC licenses using the EMA. Refer to System Administration - License Management and Managing SBC Licenses for details.

Configure your system

You are now ready to configure your SBC SWe for traffic!

A large amount of information is needed to configure your platform. Use the IP Plan you created in step 1 to help manage this information.
