Product Review

The Cisco NIM-2CE1T1-PRI module offers dual port connectivity, supporting both T1 and E1 interfaces, which makes it versatile for various international telecommunications standards. Its support for clear-channel data, multi-flex trunking, and compatibility with a range of Cisco Integrated Services Routers and Catalyst Edge Series platforms allows for seamless integration into existing network infrastructures. However, the device's operational temperature range and relative humidity specifications necessitate a controlled environment for optimal performance, potentially limiting deployment in environments with extreme conditions.


The Cisco NIM-2CE1T1-PRI is a network interface module designed for integration with Cisco 4000 Integrated Services Routers and the Catalyst 8300 and 8200 Edge Series Platforms. It provides two ports for T1 or E1 connections, offering flexibility for a range of network configurations. This module supports clear-channel data and Multi-Flex Trunk capabilities, ensuring efficient and scalable communication paths for voice, video, and data services. With support for unstructured E1 (G.703), the module can handle various data rates, making it suitable for different global standards. Its ability to support channelized data allows for the segmentation of the E1 or T1 streams into multiple channels, which can be used for separate data streams, enhancing the module's versatility in handling different types of network traffic. The module's specifications include support for Multi-Frequency Tones (MFT) for packet voice, ensuring high-quality voice transmission across the network. Each port can process serial data for up to 24 channels on a T1 connection and 31 channels on an E1 connection. Additionally, it provides Voice Channel Associated Signaling (VCAS) for each time slot, enhancing the module's capability in managing voice communications efficiently. PRI (Primary Rate Interface) support is available for each port, enabling high-capacity, digital transmission for users. This feature is crucial for businesses that require a reliable connection for voice and data services. The module also offers Drop and Insert functionality for each time slot, which is essential for integrating different streams of voice and data traffic. The physical dimensions of the Cisco NIM-2CE1T1-PRI are 1.25 inches in height, 3.50 inches in width, and 7.24 inches in depth, with a weight of 0.42 lbs. This compact size makes it easy to install in the compatible Cisco routers without occupying excessive space. Operating and storage temperatures range from 0 °C to 50 °C and -20 °C to 65 °C, respectively, with relative humidity tolerances from 10% to 85% for operating conditions and 5% to 95% for storage. These specifications ensure the module's reliability in various environmental conditions. The module meets international compliance standards, including TIA-968-A, CS-03, Jate, ANSI T1.403 for T1 connections, and TBR4, TBR12, and TBR13; ITU-T G.703, G.704, G.823, and I.431 for E1 connections, confirming its suitability for global deployment. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • Clear-Channel and Channelized Data Support
  • Unstructured E1 (G.703) Support
  • 24 Serial Data and Voice Channel Associated Signaling per Port (T1), 31 per Port (E1), 1 per Time Slot
In summary, the Cisco NIM-2CE1T1-PRI network interface module offers an efficient solution for integrating voice and data services over T1 or E1 networks. Its support for clear-channel and channelized data, along with PRI and drop and insert functionality, make it a versatile choice for businesses looking to enhance their network infrastructure with high-quality voice and data communication capabilities.
