Installing and Configuring a Sangoma Card on ScopTEL PBX

Installing and Configuring a Sangoma Card on ScopTEL PBX

ScopServ Integration

Full integration and support for Sangoma cards is included in ScopTEL PBX and includes a quick and easy way to configure all Sangoma cards directly from the ScopTEL PBX Web management interface.


Sangoma Digital/Analog Cards

Sangoma makes a series of PCI and PCI Express cards that can be installed in any server and allow the user to use a PRI line, a T1/E1/J1 line, regular telephone lines (connected to FXO Ports), or to connect standard analog phones (connected to FXS Ports). A PRI Line and T1/E1/J1 line are Digital lines that are usually supplied by either a local telephone company or a provider of business telephone and data services. The most common Sangoma cards used in ScopTEL PBX installations are the A100 (Digital), A200/A400 (Analog),  and A500 (ISDN) series.

ScopTEL PBX users do not need to install Wanpipe (Sangoma) drivers because the latest version of all Wanpipe kernel modules and Wanpipe tools are automatically installed with every installation. We always provide latest Wanpipe version on ScopServ RPM repository.

  1. Install one or more Sangoma cards on the server
  2. Enable Digital and/or Analog interfaces on Telephony -> Configuration -> Telephony Modules (see image below)



Detect installed card(s)

If you have install Sangoma card(s)  in your server, you can open the ScopTEL PBX GUI in your favorite web browser and click on Telephony -> Interfaces menu to configure cards.

Click on the Detect Cards link to open the Wizard window.



You must follow the instructions displayed in the card detection Wizard. The process is very simple!


You will be asked to specify the default values used by the  Detect Card Wizard to configure the Digital interface type  (T1/E1) and  Supervision Disconnection mode used by Analog interfaces. Please note that you can change the settings later without having to re-execute the Wizard.


After detection is complete, you will be able to see the new cards that have been added to your system. You can then customize the settings for each port (PRI / BRI / FXO / FXS) according to your needs from the Telephony -> Interface menu  for Digital and Analog Interfaces.


You can now configure your Incoming and Outgoing Lines or Extensions.
