Product Migration Options

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 then another card for E1 connectivity. In addition, the same modules provide for balanced (120-ohm) and unbalanced (75-ohm) E1 termination. A cable adapter is available to adapt the card to your environment. See Table 3 for an overview of recommended replacement products.
