Displaying and Configuring CVM Cards

The Channelized Voice Module (CVM) is a multipurpose front card. A CVM circuit line can carry the following types of traffic:

  • Voice

  • Data

  • Combination of voice and either low-speed or high-speed data

The parameters are described in Table 11-5.


Table 11-5: Voice Channels Dialog Parameters
Parameter Description

Inband is the default dial type.

Signaling Delay(msecs)

Specifies the signaling delay for the user-configured dial type. The range is 12-96 ms. Your entry is rounded to the closest multiple of 1.5 ms.
