The Initial Setup process sets the basic configuration for the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system and is only required the first time you setup the system. After completing this process, you can start using and configuring the system remotely using a web browser.

The Initial Setup screen will present different information depending whether or not your Sonus SBC 1000/2000 is equipped with an Application Solution Module. The screen below is shown for an Sonus SBC 1000/2000 with an installed ASM. If the SBC you are setting up does not have an ASM, certain fields are unavailable. These are noted below.
