    NETVANTA DUAL T1 NIM, 2nd Gen

    hopkins-tech New Member

      We have two NetVanta 3205 3rd Gen, and need to bind two T1's together.  I found a Netvanta DUAL T1 NIM (2nd Gen), will these two work together?  If so, does it require any configuration?  Thanks.

          The 2nd generation Dual T1 NIM (1202872L1) should work fine in the 3rd generation 3205.  Obviously, you need to configure the routers in order to use the NIM(s).

          The following example is using a PPP interface with it's own IP address to use for routing.  You can also use bridging instead, but I'm just used to doing it this way.
          I hope this works.

           

           

          This is an example of the configuration:

          Router A:

          ====================================

          !

          interface t1 1/1

            tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

            no shutdown

          !

          interface t1 1/2

            tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

            no shutdown

          !

          interface ppp 1

            ip address 172.16.1.5 255.255.255.252

            ppp multilink

            no shutdown

            cross-connect 1 t1 1/1 1 ppp 1

            cross-connect 2 t1 1/1 1 ppp 1

           

          ip route X.X.X.X 255.255.255.0 ppp 1

           

          Router B:

          ====================================

          !

          interface t1 1/1

            clock source line

            tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

            no shutdown

          !

          interface t1 1/2

            clock source line

            tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

            no shutdown

          !

          interface ppp 1

            ip address 172.16.1.6 255.255.255.252

            ppp multilink

            no shutdown

            cross-connect 1 t1 1/1 1 ppp 1

            cross-connect 2 t1 1/1 1 ppp 1

           

          ip route X.X.X.X 255.255.255.0 ppp 1
