Hello All, we are in the process of ordering a DS3 circuit between two sites.
One site will have a new 3845 router while the other will connect to an existing 7206VXR router (NPE300 processor).
I need to figure out what interfaces/modules I need to purchase for these two routers.
The options I think I have are:
For 3845 --
NM-1A-T3 1-port DS-3 ATM network module
NM-1T3/E3 1-port clear-channel T3/E3 network module
For 7206VXR --
PA-A3-T3 1-port ATM DS3 port adapter, enhanced
PA-T3+ 1-port T3+ high speed serial port adapter.
I checked the 7200 Port Adapter Installation requirements to make sure I will not exceed the bandwidth points if I purchase either of the DS3 adapters.
I guess this will all depend on the line being ordered, Serial or ATM....
But since I've never dealt with a DS3 line before I want to make sure I order the right part.
Any advice would be greately appreciated.
the part numbers are correct. if this is a point-to-point T3 get the 'serial' version that is easier to configure and more efficient bandwidth-wise.
Instead if you are connecting to an ATM network, you need ATM as the serial version will not work.
Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
