 IP Office 500 Trunk Cards

IP500 daughter trunk cards can be fitted to existing IP500 base cards to provide support for trunk ports. The daughter card uses the ports provided on the base card for cable connection. The addition of an IP500 daughter trunk card is supported on IP500 Digital Station, IP500 Analog Phone and IP500 VCM base cards. They are not supported on the IP500 Legacy Card Carrier base card


In systems with both Analog Phone 8 base cards and analog trunk cards, combining the two types are recommended as it then provides analog power failure support for one trunk/extension (not applicable to the Analog Phone 2 base card).

Each daughter card is supplied with the spacer pegs required for installation and a label to identify the cards presence on the physical unit once installed.

 

IP Office 500 Analog Trunk Card (Maximum 4)

 

This card can be added to an IP500 Digital Station card, IP500 Analog Phone base card, or IP500 VCM card. It allows that card to then also support 4 analog loop-start trunks. Only one analog V.32 modem is supported on a system.

 

• When fitted to an IP500 Analog Phone 8 base card (not Phone 2), the combination supports 1 power failure extension to trunk connection.

• The card provides a V32 modem for remote access (only one per system)--supported on ETR and TCM cards.

 

• IP Office 500 BRI Trunk Card (Euro ISDN) (Maximum 4)

 This type of card can be added to an IP500 Digital Station card, IP500 Analog Phone card, TMC8 card or IP500 VCM card. It allows that card to then also support up to 4 BRI trunk connections, each trunk providing 2B+D digital channels. The card is available in 2 port (4 channels) and 4 port (8 channels) variants.

 

The ports on IP500 BRI cards can be individually configured to operate as an S-interface (S0 mode). When set as an S interface the settings for the Line will be exactly the same as for a circuit on an So8 Expansion Module.

 

• These trunks support the mobility features of Mobile Call Control and one-X Mobile client

• IP500 Universal PRI Trunk Card (Maximum 4)

 

This type of card can be added to an IP500 Digital Station card, IP500 Analog Phone card, or IP500 VCM card. It allows that card to then also support primary rate digital trunk connections. Available in single and dual versions the IP400 PRI card provides single and dual primary rate trunk interfaces respectively. The PRI is configurable for T1, E1 or E1R2 MFC use depending on the territory.

Details of the supported ISDN supplementary services and protocols for each PRI are iven in the ‘Public and Private Voice Networks' section.

 

The IP500 Universal PRI trunk cards incorporate an integrated CSU/DSU. The CSU function allows the trunk to be put in     loop-back mode for testing purposes. This can be set manually, using the monitor application, or automatically from a Central Office sending a Line Loop Back (LLB) pattern. The DSU function allows the T1 trunk to be shared between data and voice services.

Here is a summary of the capabilities of the card:

 

• Each card is configurable to connect to T1, E1 or E1R2 lines.

• The card is available in either a single or dual PRI variant. The single variant can support up to 24 T1 channels or up to 30 E1 channels. The dual variant can support up to 48 T1 channels or 60 E1 channels.

• Support for ETR card

• On each card, 8 channels per interface are enabled by default. This means that the single PRI has 8 channels enabled, while the dual PRI has 16 channels enabled. Further channels may be enabled by the purchase of additional licenses in 2-channel or 8-channel increments.

• The IP500 PRI daughter card works on any IP500 VCM or extension base card (not the Legacy Card Carrier).

• Up to four Universal PRI cards can be installed in any combination in the IP500 or IP500 V2 control unit

• Diagnostics capabilities:

                              • Visual indicators to show service state

                              • Physical test points to monitor traffic

• These trunks support the mobility features of Mobile Call Control and one-X Mobile client.
