Re: E&M to E&M connection

Hy Folks,

E&M Interfaces are used to connect PBX in case you cannot use an BRI-Interface. First of all please check if the E&M Type Version is configured well. Then you have to check the signaling Type as well. It can be either wink-,immidiate-, or ground-start depending on the PBX you are using. All these parameters must be the same on all E&M-interfaces (Router and PBX side) otherwise it won't work. Some PBX use different cable pinouts as the Cisco E&M Interfaces do. Please look at the links I send to you. Finaly if you have a serial connecten between HQ and branch1 please check if the dial-peers on both sides are configured well.

Re: E&M to E&M connection

Check the ff:

1. Wiring

2. Grounding, analog interfaces sometimes will not

work if not grounded. pin 8 of the E&M interface is

used for grounding.

3. Signalling ( wink or immediate)

4. Operation ( 2 wire or 4 wire)

Make sure all parameters are the same with the PBX.

Based on my experiences you need to start with the

wiring, almost all problems start from there.
