Product Review

The Cisco NIM-2MFT-T1/E1 module offers dual ports for T1/E1 connectivity, supporting clear-channel data and multiflex trunk voice/data integration, making it versatile for various networking requirements. However, it lacks support for unstructured E1 (G.703) and channelized data, which could limit its use in certain applications. Designed for Cisco 4000 Integrated Services Routers and Catalyst 8300 and 8200 Edge Series platforms, its dimensions and operating conditions ensure compatibility and reliability in standard networking environments.


The Cisco NIM-2MFT-T1/E1 module is a versatile network interface card designed for integration with Cisco 4000 Integrated Services Routers and the Catalyst 8300 and 8200 Edge Series Platforms. This module is engineered to deliver high-density, multi-protocol network connectivity, providing a reliable interface for T1 and E1 networks. With two ports available, the module supports clear-channel data and MFT packet voice, ensuring efficient and flexible communication capabilities. However, it does not support unstructured E1 (G.703) or channelized data, focusing instead on serial data with two connections per port. This design enhances the module's application in environments requiring high-performance data and voice integration. Key features include voice channel associated signaling, supporting 24 channels per port for T1 and 31 channels per port for E1, with one channel per time slot. This capability is complemented by PRI functionality, available one per port, and the drop and insert feature, which matches the voice channel associated signaling capacity. These specifications make the module particularly suited for applications requiring precise voice and data integration and manipulation. The physical dimensions of the Cisco NIM-2MFT-T1/E1 include a height of 1.25 inches, a width of 3.50 inches, and a depth of 7.24 inches, with a weight of 0.42 lbs. This compact size allows for easy integration into existing network setups without requiring significant space adjustments.
  • Operating temperature ranges from 0 °C to 50 °C, accommodating a wide range of environmental conditions.
  • Storage temperature spans from -20 °C to 65 °C, ensuring the module's integrity during non-operational periods.
  • Relative humidity parameters for operation and storage are set between 10% to 85% and 5% to 95% (Noncondensing), respectively, providing flexibility in various climatic conditions.
The module adheres to multiple compliance standards, including TIA-968-A, CS-03, Jate, ANSI T1.403 for T1, and TBR4, TBR12, TBR13, ITU-T G.703, G.704, G.823, and I.431 for E1. These certifications ensure the device's compatibility and reliability across different regulatory environments, making it a suitable choice for global deployments. Designed specifically for use with Cisco's advanced router series, the Cisco NIM-2MFT-T1/E1 module represents a strategic investment for businesses looking to enhance or extend their network's voice and data capabilities. Its support for both T1 and E1 connections, coupled with its advanced signaling and PRI features, positions it as a critical component for network administrators aiming to optimize their communication infrastructure's efficiency and reliability.
