Displaying and Configuring UFM-C Cards

The Universal Frame Model (UFM-C) supports either 4 or 8 T1 or E1 ports per backcard. The UFM-4C supports 4 ports regardless of the presence of the eight connectors on the UFI backcard. The UFM-8C supports all 8 ports. Both models of the UFM-C support 1 to 24 or 1 to 31 DS0s per physical line.

The UFM-C can also operate unchannelized for E1 only, with 32 DS0s constituting one unchannelized E1. In the unchannelized mode, one logical E1 port maps to one E1 line.

Displaying Card Parameters

To display the Card Configuration dialog for this device (using the rear or front view), right-click on the card to display the card "Configure" pop-up menu, then select Configure.

Front Card Configuration Dialog

Use this dialog to display UFM-C card characteristics, hardware, firmware, and status information. The Card Configuration dialog parameters are described in Table 14-1.
