Configuring a Sangoma Vega 3050G Gateway for use with 3CX

Firstly, log into your 3CX dashboard and navigate to the extensions tab on the left.

Create a new extension 

Replace the Authentication ID near the bottom with the extension number input at the top

Now, in a new tab navigate to your Vega’s web interface and log in. Once at the dashboard, click Quick Config on the left hand side. From here, click VOIP and change the Registration Mode to FXS Port. Next, replace the SIP Domain & SIP Server IP/Name fields with the IP address of your 3CX server.

Note: We also advise changing the first CODEC at the bottom to from g729 to none, as shown below.

After that, navigate to the FXS tab. You will notice that all of the Telephone Connections are enabled as shown below.

Disable all of the connections that you do not wish to use, and replace the Numeric Caller ID, Textual Caller ID, Telephone number and Registration and Authentication ID with the extension number, in this case 5001. Then type the authentication password in its respective field at the end of the row.

Return to your Extensions tab on 3CX. If you followed the guide correctly, there should be a green circle next to your new extension indicating that it has registered correctly and is ready to use.

If it is still red, go to your 3CX Dashboard > IP Blacklist and ensure that your PBX server has not been blacklisted automatically, as show below. If this has occurred, simply select the Denied IP, click edit and change Deny to Allow.

Sangoma Vega 100 as an ISDN gateway to a SIP PBX

The aim is to use a Sangoma Vega 100 single port PRI gateway as an ISDN gateway for a SIP PBX.

All the Vega will do is forward anything it gets on the ISDN line to the SIP PBX and forward anything from the SIP PBX to the ISDN line.

Steps as follows:

  • Web browse to the Vega and login
  • Go to the Quick Config section
  • On the E1/T1 page, change the number for Interface 1 to just “.*” (dot-star without the quotes)
  • Ignore lines 2-4
  • Open up the Port Settings (ISDN line settings) section and check that the line is set to the correct mode, TE (not NT)
  • On the SIP tab, enter the IP or hostname of your SIP PBX into the domain and proxy settings. You do not need Outbound Proxy and it’s best to set this up without Registration
  • Apply the quick config

That should be it, the Vega will forward SIP to ISDN and ISDN to SIP regardless of numbers received on either side.

The main settings for this are in “Dial plan” in Expert Config. You can see what has been generated in the “To_SIP” and “To_E1T1” dial plans.

Note: this should also work on Vega 200 and Vega 400 if you add the other ISDN interfaces into the planner group that the dial plan “To_E1T1” uses.
