MIRAN Card Installation

  1. Locate MIRAN III card, security device (dongle), Audio Adapter A0870611 Audio adapter , serial cable, and matching keycode.
  2. Place the MIRAN card (with dongle in place MIRAN Dongle in place ) in any vacant IPE card slot, do not push home.
  3. Remove amphenol cable from the card slot, and seat the MIRAN audio adapter in it's place.
  4. Connect a serial cable from the audio adapter (9 pin D) or front panel TTY port (mini DIN) to a PC com port.
  5. Launch terminal software (HyperTerminal, PuTTY, etc) set to: 9600, 8-N-1.
  6. Seat MIRAN card in slot. You should see some boot up messages on terminal.
  7. When prompted, enter three (3) “+” signs. The Log On Screen MIRAN Log On Screen appears.
  8. Log in with admin / admin000 (default). Shift ~ (tilde) refreshes the screen.
  9. At Main Menu, enter “2”, Pack administration. The dongle ID is shown top left - see note.
  10. At Pack administration, enter “2”, keycode entry. Enter keycodes with a space between each set of numbers
  11. Return to main log-on menu, verify that the keycode is validated (bottom of screen)
  12. Log on again, enter “2”, pack administration, then enter “6”, Ethernet configuration.
  13. Use the down arrow to “IP Method”, backspace and re-type “disabled”. Down arrow to “set” and press enter.
  14. Exit and log out. Reset the MIRAN card to insure that it reboots.
  15. When booted/ready, the display should read "MRN 3", and the terminal be at the log-on screen.

NOTE#1: MIRAN uses pair's 23&24 on it's Amphenol for ELAN. This is the "T" LAN port of an "ITG" adapter.

NOTE#2: In step 9 above, if the dongle ID is displayed as all zero's, remove the card, and check the dongle is correctly seated.

UPDATE: In step 12 above, you need to disable the BOOTP option so that the card does not hang waiting for a BOOTP server response. You can also manually enter an ELAN IP address, and subsequently use this address to access the MIRAN GUI interface in a web browser.

The Media Card comes in two versions: MC8 (8-port), and MC32 (32-port). Different firmware is pre-installed (on compact flash), depending on the application being supported, MIRAN (Integrated Recorded Announcer) or VGMC (Voice Gateway Media card). You can use an MC8 compact flash on an MC32 card (and visa-versa) if necessary.

PBX Programming

Build a RAN route and a trunk for Music on Hold

1.    Log into hyper-terminal in the OPT11C and go into LD 21:

REQ: ltm

This list’s all routes and trunk members.
Note what each route is, and identify an available route number.

2.    Determine what access code is available by going into LD 20:

REQ: prt
TYPE: ludn
10      11      120     121     122     1230    1231    1232    1233    12340
12341   12342   12343   12344   12346   12347   12348   12349   1235    1236

Note an available directory number, it can be a 4 digit number (eg. 1230), and is only used for testing.

3.    Determine available conference loop. Go into LD 22:

REQ  prt
TYPE cequ
  SUPL  000  004  008  012 
        016  032  036  040 
        044  048  064  068 
  XCT   000 
  CONF  029  030  031  062    <- here are the conference loops
        094  095 

This will list all conference loops. Pick an EVEN numbered one

4.    Go to LD 16, build a music route:

REQ  new
TYPE rdb
ROUT 3          (use any vacant route number)
DES  moh
TKTP mus
ICOG ogt
ACOD 1230       (access code for testing)
TARG x1         (allow TGAR 1 sets to dial access code)

5.    Go to LD 14, build a music trunk (trunk hardware is ON the MIRAN card):

REQ  new
TYPE mus
TN   9 0        (card in slot 9, substitute for your location)
DES  moh
XTRK exut
RTMB 3 1        (route # and member 1)
CFLP 30         (conf loop chosen from CEQU above)
Note: The TN coincides with the "channel number" in the MIRAN Calendar Assignments. By default, 0 is assigned to MOH.
Optionally, repeat the above steps for other channels or services, such as RAN with TN 1, etc.

On any incoming trunk route, set MUS = YES in LD 16 for that RDB, for callers to hear hold music. Also check the TARG assignment. Enter X plus the TARG number to remove if necessary.

With TARG removed, you should be able to dial the access code (ACOD) and hear music - the ACOD is used ONLY for TESTING. When an incoming call on a route with MUS = YES is put on hold, the caller will hear music.
