Vanguard Overview

Vanguard 340E contains two dual-port voice daughter boards which are software configured for use with E&M modules. The internal board strapping can be checked against the Vanguard documentation for troubleshooting, however, this strapping should already be pre-configured for installation. The cabling consists of power cord with power supply, LAN crossover cable for connection to the VoIP circuit Router, and cat-5 cables with RJ-45 connectors which provide connectivity to the Option 11C. The pins of each RJ-45 port input MUST match the appropriate Option 11C wiring (see Table 1 below), with the exception of Pin 1 which is Signal ground. These pins should be securely connected to the ground bar of the Option 11C using Cat-5 or cross-connect wire, and should NOT be connected to the Option 11C’s board output.
