Hello Kennie,

1. How does the interface for data look like.

a serial interface.

if controller e1 0/1/0 is configured for unframed

controller e1

channel-group 0 unframed

a serial interface is created se0/1/0:0

if you define timeslots

controller e1

channel-group 1 timeslots 1-15

channel-group 2 timeslots 16-30

two different serial interfaces are created



2) in voice the D channel is

ser0/1/0:15 so it is different and you see the single B channels in sh ip int brief

unless you use the more modern ds0-group command to create voice ports that are groups of B channels

T1 has D channel on 23th channel


controller e1 0/1/0

no shut

if you are in a lab one side has to provide the clock to the other with

clock source internal

for voice additional commands may be needed depending on the scenario

Hope to help
