Perform this procedure at the central site.

Before you perform the procedure, the following conditions must be in place:
  • Microsoft Communications Server 2010 must be set up at the central site.

  • Mediation Server must be deployed at the central site.

To define a PSTN gateway

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Communications Server 2010 (Beta), and then click Communications Server Topology Builder.

  2. In the console tree, expand the central site, expand Branch Office Sites, and then expand name of the branch site that you want to define a PSTN gateway for.

  3. Right-click PSTN Gateways, and then click New PSTN Gateway.

  4. In the Define PSTN Gateway dialog box, click Gateway FQDN or IP Address, and then type the FQDN or IP address of the gateway that you are deploying at the branch site.

  5. Click Listening Port, and then accept the default values.

  6. In the SIP Transport Protocol list, click the transport protocol the gateway uses, and then click OK.

    For security reasons, we strongly recommend that you use an IP/PSTN gateway that supports Transport Layer Security (TLS).
Use the cmdlet Set-CsPstnGateway to modify properties of a PSTN gateway. For more information, see Set-CsPstnGateway, in the Communications Server Management Shell Help.
