In addition to supporting all the functionality of the one-port serial card, the four-port serial card supports transporting data from serial interfaces over an IP network. Data received on the serial interfaces is encapsulated into IP packets and sent over the IP network. IP packets destined for serial interfaces are stripped off their headers and the payload is transmitted over the serial interfaces. Each port can function in DTE or DCE mode. Used with the VX900 AB and AD only.

See the Serial Interface Card Cables Specifications topic for additional cable and connector specifications.

Description

036054-001

A

Quad breakout cable (DTE)

036159-011

A

DTE Adapter with Terminal Timing and DCD support (25-pin M-F)

036159-002

DCE Adapter with Terminal Timing and DCD support (25-pin M-F)

  • DTE adapter with Terminal timing support is optionally required for deployments that need terminal timing capability (for deployments that have a long (>12 feet) cable requirement and/or high (>4Mbps) speed requirement).
  • DCE adapter is required for all DCE interfaces on VX.
Standard Interface Cables

This table lists the cables that are not provided by NET and need to be purchased from a 3rd party vendor.
