Connection to power supply (old generation models without PoE)

Connect the gateway using the power supply and the cable provided with the gateway, as it is shown on the picture:


Connection to Ethernet

The network port is situated on the rear panel of the gateway, marked as “Network”. It is used as a WAN port and configured in the DHCP client mode.

Connect the cable as it is shown on the picture:



You should connect to the PBX in order to configure the gateway

Connection to the line

On the rear panel of the BRI gateway, there are from one to four ports marked as "Bri1 – Bri4". Connect your Bri lines to these ports, as it is shown on the picture below:


Provisioning and configuration of the gateway

For auto-provisioning of BRI gateway, follow our online Guide.

For remote/unreachable media gateways behind NAT/Firewall, follow our online Guide to remote provisioning.

Firmware upgrade

Starting from WMS v. 5.01.20200508.1, PRI media gateways are directly upgraded via internet connection to firmwares.wildix.com or custom server defined in WMS Settings -> Tools and utilities -> Upgrade -> Custom firmware server.

Starting from BRI firmware version 44.1.1605 and higher, upgrade is performed via single firmware (binary) file. If you have media gateways with version 42.2.XXX and lower, proceed with the following steps: 

  1. Manually upgrade devices to version 43.1.1264 (steps are described in this Guide)
  2. Within half an hour, media gateways are automatically updated to the latest firmware version 45.1.1870 

Otherwise, skipping the upgrade to 43.1.1264 can lead to infinite transferring of configuration scripts.

Reset of the gateway

In case you need to reconfigure the BRI gateway, you should perform a reset procedure, as shown on the picture. The switch marked as “Reset/Default” is situated on the rear panel of the gateway.


In case the LEDs remain turned on for more than one minute after the reset procedure, disconnect the power supply and repeat the reset procedure when the device starts.
