Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 Analog Modem Network Modules with V.92


The Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 Analog Modem Network Modules with V.92 serve as integrated analog modem network modules (NMs) for the modular access routers (MARS) family of routers. These network modules terminate either 8 or 16 analog modem connections through POTS interfaces.

For information on new features and Cisco IOS commands supported by software for the Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 network modules, see the "Additional References" section.

Information About Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 Network Modules

This section contains information that you need to use the Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 network modules.

Overview

Key Features and Benefits

Chat Script

Overview

Two new analog modem network modules, the Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 network modules, support basic telephone service connections on Cisco 2600XM series routers, Cisco 3600 series, and Cisco 3700 series. These network modules allow the following:

Standard telephone connections on RJ-11 connectors

Up to 16 remote analog modem users to connect to a Cisco 2600XM series

Up to 32 remote analog modem users to connect to a Cisco 3725

Up to 64 remote analog modem users to connect to a Cisco 3745

Up to 96 remote analog modem users to connect to a Cisco 3660

Combined with the differentiated services delivered through Cisco IOS software, users of Cisco 2600XM series, Cisco 3600 series, and Cisco 3700 series routers have best-of-breed scalability, flexibility, and investment protection, all in cost-effective, multifunctional platforms.

Key Features and Benefits

The Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 network modules provide several new features and benefits.

8 or 16 internal V.34/V.42bis/V.44/V.90/V.92 analog modems per network module

Up to 56-kbps data download and 14.4-kbps fax communication

V.92 Quick Connect and Modem-on-Hold features

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) based tools with centrally-managed modem capabilities used to manage the rest of the network (such as CiscoView and Cisco Works 2000)

Support for a broad range of dial-in features with Cisco IOS dial access software

Software upgradable modem firmware to support possible future changes

Support for all traditional Cisco IOS asynchronous encapsulations and WAN services

Modem AT command interface

Managed modem support via Cisco IOS CLI commands and Cisco Modem Management MIB

Support for online insertion and removal (OIR) on Cisco 3660 and Cisco 3745 routers

Compatible with approved Dialout Client applications

These features enable a wide variety of dial-in clients to use the applications and facilities of the branch office network.

Virtual private network (VPN) support—This feature allows for cost-effective connections for a geographically dispersed user base. It can reduce access cost support and allow remote users straightforward access to their office LAN through a local Internet service provider (ISP), while maintaining a high degree of end-to-end security.

Robust security features—Utilizing TACACS+, Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol/Password Authentication Protocol (CHAP/PAP), Triple Data Encryption Standard (3-DES) encryption, and the built-in firewall capabilities of Cisco IOS software allows secure access for a wide variety of remote users to sensitive company data.

Network Management

CiscoWorks—Allows centralized management of multiple Cisco 2600XM, Cisco 3600, and Cisco 3700 routers.

In-band and out-of-band management via TCP/IP and SNMP, including MIB II and other extensions, over TCP/IP.

TCP/IP addresses can be assigned via DHCP, per user, or via an internal address pool, or they can be selected remotely.

Maintains a detailed activity log for accounting, billing, and troubleshooting.

Ability to download image and configuration across routers.

Security

Username, password, and dial-back security

Multilevel administration password support

CHAP and PAP support

Centralized authentication via AAA

IP device and network filtering

AppleTalk zone and device filtering

Modem Management

The Cisco 2600XM series, Cisco 3600 series, and Cisco 3700 series routers ship with general network management capabilities.


NoteThe analog modem network module is being submitted for approval worldwide, but because of specific in-country approval processes, approval dates vary. For the latest availability status, please check online at http://www.cisco.com.

Chat Script

The Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 network modules support chat script like other Cisco modem modules. There is no need to put a factory reset parameter in the chat script because this will interfere with the modem settings configured internally by the Cisco NM-xAM-V2 firmware. If a factory reset parameter is included, the parameter may interfere with how the connection speed is collected and the modem may be unreliable in any reports on the speed.

When using the AT&F reset parameter in a chat-script with Cisco NM-8AM-V2 and NM-16AM-V2 network modules, the reset parameter should be used in conjunction with the connect string setting. For example:

AT&F\\v1s0=1

This setting gives a factory reset, a long connect string, and answers after one ring. For more information, refer to the documentation at:

http://cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/dial/configuration/guide/dia_nm8amv2_nm16amv2.html
