Cisco CEoIP Network Modules

Cisco CEoIP network modules provide a virtual circuit through an IP network (similar to a leased line). Transport of data, regardless of the content or structure of the data stream, is entirely transparent to the destination; bits arriving at one end are delivered unchanged to the destination address.

This chapter provides information on the following two Cisco CEoIP network modules:

4-port serial interface network module (NM-CEM-4SER), shown in Figure 1

4-port T1/E1 RJ-48 interface network module (NM-CEM-4TE1), shown in Figure 2

Figure 1 4-Port Serial Interface Network Module (NM-CEM-4SER) Faceplate

Figure 2 4-Port T1/E1 RJ-48 Interface Network Module (NM-CEM-4TE 1) Faceplate

4-Port Serial Interface Network Modules (NM-CEM-4SER)

The 4-port serial interface network module (NM-CEM-4SER) is a single-wide CEoIP network module with four serial ports that support the following interfaces:

EIA/TIA-232

EIA/TIA-449

EIA-530

EIA-530A

V.35

X.21


Caution To comply with the Telcordia GR-1089 NEBS standard for electromagnetic compatibility and safety, connect the 4-port serial interface network module (NM-CEM-4SER) only to intrabuilding or nonexposed wiring or cabling. The intrabuilding cable must be shielded and the shield must be grounded at both ends.

The interface type provided by the port is determined by the cable connected to the port. For information on interface-specific cabling requirements, see the "Connecting 4-Port Serial Interface Network Modules to the Network" section.

For information on network module LEDs, see the "4-Port Serial Interface Network Module (NM-CEM-4SER) LEDs" section.

Connecting 4-Port Serial Interface Network Modules to the Network

The 4-port serial interface network module uses Smart Serial connectors, permitting each port to support a basic or extended set of serial control signals, depending on the cable connected to the port.


Caution To comply with the Telcordia GR-1089 NEBS standard for electromagnetic compatibility and safety, connect the 4-port serial interface network module (NM-CEM-4SER) only to intrabuilding or nonexposed wiring or cabling. The intrabuilding cable must be shielded and the shield must be grounded at both ends.

The following basic set of control signals is used on Cisco 12-in-1 cables:

Data Terminal Ready (DTR)

Data Set Ready (DSR)

Request to Send (RTS)

Clear to Send (CTS)

Data Carrier Detect (DCD)

Local Loop (LL)

The following control signals are part of the extended set, in addition to the basic set listed above, and are used on Cisco Extended 12-in-1 cables:

Remote Loop (RL)

Test Mode (TM)

Ring Indicator (RI)


Note Control signal support depends on the interface type. Not all of the control signals listed above are supported by every interface type.



Note The control signal names used in this document are the names commonly used in the industry for RS-232. Other interface types may use other names for the equivalent control signals.


The 4-port serial interface network module (NM-CEM-4SER) supports both Cisco 12-in-1 interface cables and Cisco Extended 12-in-1 interface cables with user-defined end-connectors permitting connection to either DTE or DCE interfaces.

Interfaces and DTE or DCE modes are defined by the type of cable connected to the network module.


Tip Use the Cisco 12-in-1 cable for X.21 interfaces. The X.21 interface connector does not require an additional DIN connector.


For information on using Cisco 12-in-1 cables with the 4-port serial interface network module, see Table 3. Figure 4 illustrates how to connect the Cisco 12-in-1 cable to the network module.

For information on using Cisco Extended 12-in-1 cables with the 4-port serial interface network module, see Table 4. Figure 5 illustrates how to connect the Cisco Extended 12-in-1 cable to the network module.

All serial interface types are available in DTE or DCE format: DTE requires a plug connector at the customer premises equipment (CPE) end, and DCE requires a receptacle connector at the CPE end.

Serial Interface Data Rates and Distance Limitations

All serial signals are subject to distance limits, beyond which the signal degrades significantly or is completely lost. Generally, the slower the data rate, the greater the distance the signal can travel.

Table 2 lists maximum recommended speeds and distances for each serial interface type. If you understand and compensate for potential electrical problems, you may get good results at speeds and distances greater than those listed. For instance, the recommended maximum rate for V.35 is 2 Mbps, but 4 Mbps is commonly used.

Balanced drivers allow EIA/TIA-449, EIA/TIA-530, EIA/TIA-530A, V.35, and X.21 signals to travel greater distances than EIA/TIA-232 signals. All balanced interfaces easily support 4 to 8 Mbps.

Connecting 4-Port T1/E1 RJ-48 Interface Network Modules (NM-CEM-4TE1) to the Network

The 4-port T1/E1 RJ-48 interface network module (NM-CEM-4TE1) uses a RJ-48 straight-through cable to connect to the customer premises equipment (CPE) for use in T1 or E1 circuit emulation. (See Figure 7.)


Note All four ports on the network module must operate in the same software-configured mode, either as T1 ports or as E1 ports. The NM-CEM-4TE1 network module does not support combinations of T1 and E1 ports on the same network module.


When configured for E1 operation, the NM-CEM-4TE1 network module provides four 120-ohm balanced ports. To connect any of these ports to a 75-ohm unbalanced network, use Cisco cable CAB-ADP-75-120. For more information, see the Installing the 75-120-Ohm Adapter Cable on E1 Multichannel Port Adapters document:
