Grounding the Chassis


Warning This equipment must be grounded. Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician if you are uncertain that suitable grounding is available. [1024]


Warning AC connected units must have a permanent ground connection in addition to the power cable ground wire. NEBS-compliant grounding satisfies this requirement. [284]

You must connect the chassis to a reliable earth ground using the ground lug and hardware (provided) and size AWG 6 (13 mm2) wire.

To ground the chassis, follow this procedure:


Step 1   Locate a suitable ground.


Tip Using a multimeter, measure the impedance between various example ground locations, such as the following:

—between the ground of a junction box (outlet) and the ground of a power tap
—between the ground of a junction box and a metal water pipe
—between the Cisco IAD chassis and the ground of a power tap
—between the Cisco IAD chassis and the ground of a junction box

A good ground connection should read between 0.0 and 0.5 ohms.

Step 2   Strip one end of the ground wire to expose approximately 0.75 in. (20 mm) of conductor.

Step 3   Crimp the ground wire to the ground lug, using a crimping tool of the appropriate gauge.

Step 4   Attach the ground lug to the mounting screws at the upper left of the back of the chassis, as shown in Figure 10. Use a number 2 Phillips screwdriver and the screws supplied with the ground lug. Tighten the screws to a torque of 8 to 10 in-lb (0.9 to 1.1 N-m).


Figure 10   Required Ground Connection on a Cisco IAD2430 Series Chassis


Step 5   Connect the other end of the ground wire to a suitable grounding location at your site.





5 Install a WAN or Voice Interface Card

The Cisco IAD2430 series includes a slot for a WAN interface card (WIC) or voice interface card (VIC). The following WICs and VICs (also used by Cisco 2600 series and Cisco 3600 series routers) are supported in initial releases of the Cisco IAD2430 series:

  • WIC-2T
  • WIC-1DSU-T1
  • VIC2-4FXO

  • Note   Contact your Cisco account representative for the most recent supported cards.

For detailed information on installing and connecting interface cards, refer to the following:

"Installing WAN and Voice Interface Cards in Cisco Modular Routers," in the Cisco Interface Cards Installation Guide, at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_mod/cis2600/hw_inst/wic_inst/wic_doc/index.htm


Caution   WAN and voice interface cards do not support online insertion and removal (hot swapping). Before inserting a card into theCisco IAD chassis, you must turn off electrical power and disconnect network cables.

Always use an ESD-preventive wrist strap before handling cards.

To install a WIC or VIC, follow this procedure:


Step 1   Use a number 2 Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws holding the metal plate over the card slot cover. Remove the plate.

Step 2   Holding the interface card by the edges, line up the card with the guides on both sides of the slot.

Step 3   Insert the card in the slot. Push until it is firmly seated in the connector and the front panel of the card is flush with the rear panel of the Cisco IAD.

Step 4   Use the screwdriver to tighten the captive screws on the card.





6 Connect Cables


Warning Do not work on the system, or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. [1001]


Warning Read the installation instructions before connecting the system to the power source. [1004]


Warning This product relies on the building's installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that the protective device is rated not greater than:
120 VAC, 15A (240 VAC, 10A international) [1005]


Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45 connectors. Use caution when connecting cables. [1021]


Warning To prevent accidental discharge in the event of a power line cross, route on-premise wiring away from power cables and off-premise wiring, or use a grounded shield to separate the on-premise wiring from the power cables and off-premise wiring. A power line cross is an event, such as a lightning strike, that causes a power surge. Off-premise wiring is designed to withstand power line crosses. On-premise wiring is protected from power line crosses by a device that provides overcurrent and overvoltage protection. Nevertheless, if the on-premise wiring is in close proximity to, or not shielded from, the off-premise wiring or power cables during a lightning strike or power surge, the on-premise wiring can carry a dangerous discharge to the attached interface, equipment, and nearby personnel. [338]

Connecting LAN and Power Cables


Caution   The Cisco IAD2430 series chassis provides inputs for both AC and DC power. Design your installation to use only one type of power. Do not use AC and DC power at the same time. If you do, the unit will cease operating, and you will need to reboot it with only a single power source.

These cables and connections are described in Table 2 and Figure 11.

Verifies the controller configuration.

Configure Digital Voice

To configure basic T1 controller settings to support Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC), or Frame Relay (FR), follow these steps, beginning in global configuration mode:

  Command  Description 
Step 1 
Router(config)# controller t1 1/0

Enters controller configuration mode by controller number.

Step 2 
Router(config-ctrl)# mode cas

Configures channel-associated signaling.

Step 3 
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# framing esf

Configures framing.

Step 4 
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# linecode b8zs

Configures line encoding format.

Step 5 
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# framing {sf | esf}

If necessary, changes the DS1 link framing format. The default is SuperFrame (sf).

Step 6 
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# ds0-group 1 timeslots 1-24 type e&m-immediate-start

Configures the DS0 group.

Step 7 
Repeat Steps 3 through 6 for each additional DS0 group. 

Configures additional DS0 groups on the T1 interface. You can configure as many as 24 DS0 groups on a T1.

Step 8 
Router(config-ctrl-cas)# exit

Exits controller configuration mode.

Step 9 
Router(config-ctrl)# no shutdown

Activates the T1 controller.

Step 10 
Router(config-ctrl)# exit

Exits controller configuration mode.

Step 11 
Router(config)# exit

Exits configuration mode.

Step 12 
Router# show controller t1 1/0

Verifies the controller configuration.

For additional information about configuring specific features, see the following references:

  • For PPP, HDLC, or Frame Relay, consult the online master index for the Cisco IOS Release you are using.

See Cisco IOS Software Documentation.

  • For loopback diagnostics, or for configuring controller channel groups, channel associated signaling (CAS) voice groups, or time division multiplex (TDM) cross-connects, refer to the Cisco IAD2430 Series Integrated Access Devices Software Configuration Guide.

See Hardware Installation Guide.

Verify and Save Your Configuration

To verify the configuration and save it in NVRAM so that the configuration remains in effect if the Cisco IAD is restarted, enter the following commands:

Command  Description 
Router# show running-config

Displays the current operating configuration, including any changes you have just made.

Router# show startup-config

Displays the configuration currently stored in NVRAM.

Router# show controller t1 1/0

Displays the configuration of the T1 network interface controller.

Router# copy running-config startup-config

Writes the current running configuration to NVRAM, where it overwrites the startup configuration and becomes the new startup configuration.


Note   If you reboot the Cisco IAD or turn off the power before you complete this step, you will lose the configuration.

New Syntax for Cisco IAD2430 Series

There have been minor changes to the syntax for the Cisco IAD2430 series. These relate to the network-clock-participate command. Platforms such as the Cisco 3700 series use the following:

network-clock-participate wic slot# port port# 

For example:

network-clock-participate wic 1 port 0

The new syntax required by the Cisco IAD2430 series is as follows:

network-clock-participate controller_type slot#/port#

For example:

network-clock-participate t1 1/0
network-clock-participate t1 1/1
network-clock-participate e1 1/0
network-clock-participate e1 1/1


Note   In addition, the Cisco IAD2430 series default mode setting for the above command is network-clock-participate. For the Cisco 3700 series platforms, no network-clock-participate is the default.

Where to Go Next
