Measures to be Taken in Installing the Product
In Europe and other countries such as the US, the CATV installation bonding requirements are specified in the IEC 60728-11, Cable networks for the television signals, sound signals, and the interactive services. This Arris TG equipment is meant to be installed in accordance with the requirements of the IEC 60728-11 for it to perform safely.
If this equipment is to be installed in an area that is serviced by an IT power line network, which can be found in many areas of the Norway, then special observation should be given to make sure that the installation is in accordance with the IEC 60728-11. In areas of high surge events or where there are poor grounding situations, and areas are prone to lightning strikes then, additional surge protection may be required on the AC, RF, Ethernet, and on the Phone lines. When the TG is connected to a local computer through the Ethernet cables, the computer must be grounded properly to the building AC ground network. Then all of the plug-in cards within the computers must be properly installed and then grounded to the computer’s frame per the manufacturer’s specifications.
You will need to ensure the proper ventilation so that the position of the Telephony Gateway is in such a way that air flows freely around it, and the ventilation holes on the unit are not blocked. You do not have to mount the Telephony Gateway on the surfaces which are sensitive to the heat or which may be damaged by the heat generated by modem, or its power supply, or other accessories.
Installing your Telephone Gateway
And when all things set, if you are installing the Telephony Gateway by yourself, you need to make sure that you have the following items in hand before you can continue:
Telephony Gateway package: coaxial cable, which is a round cable with a connector on each of its ends. It is the same kind of wire that is used to connect to your television for cable TV. You can easily buy the coax from any electronics retailer store and make sure it has the connectors on its both ends. There are two types of connectors, the one is slip-on, and the other is screw-on; the screw-on connectors are best for the use with your Telephony Gateway. Remember that the coax should be long enough to reach from your TG to the nearest cable outlet. Phone cable must be a standard phone cable with standard phone connectors on both ends. You can also buy phone cables from any electronics retailers.
The Touchstone Arris Telephony Gateway operates with most of the computers. We have described the requirements for each operating system; you can see the documentation for your system for any details on enabling and also configuring the networking.
