I have a chanelized DS3 circuit with M13 framing from the Telco. What are the suggestions on buying the Port Adapter for the router, so that I can provide T1s to multiple customers. Will the PA-2T3 work?
I have the PA-2T3 installed, the IOS is ver. 12.0(7) but it does not let me configure individual T1s. I check with Cisco TAC and they say I will need to buy the PA-MC-2T3. The PA-MC-2T3 is too expensive to make sense for service provider, but is there any suggestion on how I can configure T1s on PA-2T3.
Doh! Yes, to break out the individual T1s as separate interfaces you will need the Multichannel version of the DS3 card. You won't be able to make the channels avaiable as individual interfaces without it. You would do the same thing with an external box, but then you're paying for extra cabling and such.
Bottom line is that you will be able to terminate the DS3 using M13 framing, but you won't be able to then break out the T1s using the PA-2T3 card. :/
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
