Introduction

Cisco Voice Network Modules provide enterprises, managed service providers, and service providers the ability to directly connect the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and legacy telephony equipment to existing Cisco 2600, Cisco 3600, and Cisco 3700 routers. The NM-1V and NM-2V carrier modules support Voice Interface Cards (VICs) to provide this connectivity.

Note: The NM-1V and NM-2V carrier modules do not support WAN Interface Cards (WICs), which are data-only interface cards. The "V" in the product name indicates that these are voice carrier modules. The WIC carrier module product numbers are NM-1W and NM-2W.

Prerequisites

Requirements

There are no specific requirements for this document.

Components Used

The information in this document is based on the following hardware versions:

  • Cisco NM-1V One Voice/Fax Interface Card Slot Network Module (supports two voice calls)

  • Cisco NM-2V Two Voice/Fax Interface Card Slot Network Module (supports four voice calls)

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
