RJ-11 connector patch panels for VG248

Hi, I'm trying to set up a VG248 Gateway to connect a few old phones to our existing CCM system. We ordered the VG248 a while ago and it arrived on its own, without any patch panels or cables for the two banks of 24 RJ-11 connections. I've been looking online to try and find a place to buy these cables but I can't see them mentioned anywhere. They seem to be only briefly mentioned in the User manual. Does anyone know of a place I can buy them?

Thanks,

Hi Dan,

Just to add a note to the good info you received from Paolo (Congrats on the Green Star P! 5 points to replace the undeserved one point rating I saw you receive yesterday on another Forum).

Here are the parts you would need to connect to a 24 port rack mounted Patch Panel (without needing to terminate the cable with Bix or 110 connecting tools).

These are just examples :) I have not checked pricing $$

Hope this helps!

Where are you located ? BlackBox has many options but is expensive. Suggest a local telecom supply store.

Re: RJ-11 connector patch panels for VG248

I'm located in Ireland. I checked blackbox but I couldn't find the correct patch panel. I found one 48 port RJ11 here:

But this doen't mention anywhere that it is compatible with a cisco VG248. Is there some kind of standard for these? From what I understand, I need 2 cable's that have a 50-pin telco male connection on one end, and 24 RJ11's on the other. All of the cable that I've found only allow 12 RJ11's connection on a Telco 50-pin male?!?

Yes there is a standard for 24 pairs on the the telco-50, and yes the patch panel with rj-11 is a little hard to find. For this I suggest a local supplier that can order or make to custom spec, sometime also the exit angle of the connector is important for a nice installation.

thanks, I'll look into that. I'm surprised that nothing is mentioned about it on the cisco manual for the VG248

Hi Paolo,

I know what you mean! (you won't be at this level very long anyways) Please see my edited previous post :)

Take care,

Re: RJ-11 connector patch panels for VG248

Thanks for all the help, that's exactly what I was looking for.

PS: do you know if this will instantly eat up 48 ports worth of license's once I connect it to CCM, or will they all be disabled by default? Is there much configuring involved in a VG248 or are they just a glorified ATA?

Hi Dan,

The VG's do not consume any DLU's (License Units) and these ports are disabled by default. I have always found the VG248 to be one of the nicer peices of Cisco equipment to configure. Have a look at these docs that explain the Hardware and Software components of the install;
