Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for the Cisco NM-1CE1B, NM-1CE1U, NM-2CE1B, and NM-2CE1U Network Modules are the NM-1CE1T1-PRI and NM-2CE1T1-PRI Network Modules (Table 3). The Cisco E1/T1 ISDN PRI network modules (NM-xCE1T1-PRI) are software configurable between E1 or T1 operation, balanced or unbalanced E1 termination, and CSU/DSU. Customers no longer need to buy a specific module for T1 support and another card for E1 connectivity. In addition, the same modules provide for balanced (120 ohms) and unbalanced (75 ohms) E1 termination. A cable adapter is available to adapt the card to your environment.
