PA-4T+ A Four Port Serial Port Adapter for Cisco 7000 Family Routers

Four-Port Serial Port Adapter

The four-port adapter (PA-4T+) provides four synchronous serial ports. Each port supports full-duplex operations at T1 and E1 speeds. A single port can support up to E2 speeds.

Each port also supports a variety of interface types, determined by the separately purchased cable type connected to it. Supported interfaces include EIA/TIA-232, EIA/TIA-449, V.35, X.21, and EIA-530, allowing flexible deployments as either DCE or DTE equipment. The four-port adapter is the most cost-effective solution for low-traffic WAN connections or remote Cisco 7200 installations.

The PA-4T+ is supported on the Cisco 7200, C7301, C7304, C7500 and C7600. The PA-4T+ port adapter requires only a single slot in a Cisco 7200 Series and 7301 routers. For the Cisco 7304, it requires the port adapter carrier card option. For Cisco 7500 Series routers, it requires one of the two available adapter slots on a Versatile Interface Processor (VIP2) and an Enhanced FlexWan on the Cisco 7600.

Benefits

Cost-effective solutions for any environment

Delivers very low price-per-port and provides higher performance than comparable solutions

Provides low-cost entry for small enterprise WANs

Provides Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with high serial density for Cisco 7200 series routers, lowering cost per port and cost per subscriber

Four-port design provides flexibility

Supports four full-duplex T1/E1 connections or a single full-duplex E2 connection

All ports use identical 60-pin, D-shell receptacle that supports all interface types (i.e. RS232, RS449, RS530, V.35, x.21)

Adapter cables determine the electrical interface and port mode data terminal equipment (DTE) or data communications equipment (DCE)

Carrier-Class Reliability and Serviceability

Field-replaceable design permits online insertion and removal for continuous router availability

Port adapter handles simplify installation and removal

Support for loopback for remote diagnostics

LEDs indicate when the adapter is enabled for operation

Separate LEDs for each port indicate DTE or DCE function, transmit data, transmit clock, receive data, and receive clock signals

Metric (M3) thumbscrews included with each port adapter cable allow connections to devices that use metric hardware
