This document helps you to understand channelized E1/PRI network modules.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
This document is not restricted to specific software and hardware versions.
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

The channelized E1/ISDN Primary Rate Interface (PRI) modules are available with one or two DB-25 E1 ports with balanced or unbalanced interfaces. The channelized E1/ISDN PRI modules can receive and transmit data bidirectionally at the E1 rate of 2.048 Mbps and provide up to 30 virtual channels per E1 port. The Network Modules also include an RJ-45 Fast Ethernet port for LAN connectivity.

There is no restriction on the number of these modules that can operate in a chassis.
Note: The Cisco IOS software releases provided are typically the minimum version required to support the platform, module, or feature in question. Use the Software Advisor (registered customers only) in order to choose appropriate software for your network device: match software features to Cisco IOS and CatOS releases, compare IOS releases, or find out which software releases support your hardware. The Software Advisor and other tools are available in TAC Tools and Utilities.
Each interface on the Cisco 3600 series is configured as a slot/unit number. On the 1- or 2-Port ISDN PRI/Channelized E1 Network Module, the Fast Ethernet interface is addressed as interface fastethernet <slot>/<port> and the E1 interfaces are addressed as controller <slot>/<unit>. Concurrent ISDN BRI and PRI module support requires Cisco IOS 11.3(3)T.
Refer to Configuring Channelized E1 and Channelized T1 for configuration assistance.
Configure the interface as you would normally configure a Channelized E1/PRI interface on any other router.
