Cisco Multi-Service Access Routers and Integrated Services Routers offer a wide variety of serial connectivity modules to accommodate the range of application needs in customer networks. The serial network module family assures customers that they can choose a serial connectivity solution that fits their requirements. Serial connectivity options offer several port densities, synchronous and asynchronous alternatives. As modular components, they are easily and inexpensively field upgradeable as customer requirements change.
The sixteen-Port Asynchronous/Synchronous Serial Network Module (NM-16A/S) combines the rich multi-protocol support of the NM-4A/S and NM-8A/S with higher densities to provide compelling price-per-port solutions for networking applications. In addition to the features of the NM-4A/S and NM-8A/S, the NM-16A/S adds EIA-530A support, and support for physical lead manipulation in the IOS configuration. Lead manipulation allows the user to configure the router to ignore input signals, view the state of input signals, and to monitor the transitions of input signals.
The Network Module has one Network Module status indicator, plus one status LEDs for each serial port.
Each Network Module has 16 low-speed serial interfaces using Smart Serial connectors.
