Where is 2nd VWIC-2MFT-E1 on R3 / Voice rack rental

I was in the process of buying voice rack hardware for my home lab and I saw something I need clarification on. On the voice rack rental hardware specification pdf it shows that R3 has 2 VWIC-2MFT1-E1 but on the logical diagram it shows it has only one. Where is this second VWIC-2MFT1-E1 connected to? Thanks in advance

  • You only need two T1/E1 connections per site. One connection for the simulated Frame Relay cloud (i.e. data/WAN) and one connection for the simulated PSTN cloud.

    Are you referring to this link: s3.www.ine.com/downloads/voice_rack_rental_diagram_v3.pdf

  • We only use one VWIC-2MFT in each of our routers - whether T1 or E1. This gives us 2 ports to use - one for data (channel-group) and one for voice (pri-group), both contained in the same physical VWIC card. 
    Mind you that the real lab uses VWIC2-2MFTs or possibly VWIC2-1MFT, giving them 1 or 2 ports but on a 2nd gen card. The major difference being that a 2nd gen card can have it defined whether it is to take on the physical signaling characteristics of a T1 or an E1. Also note that the VWIC2 2nd gen cards require the "card-type" command, not supported in the gen 1 cards.

  • Thaks for the reply. You may have to walk me through this one as I'm still a littel confused and yes I'm referring to the diagram in the link you provided. Are you saying I just need one vwic-2mft-e1. So on page 5 on this voice rack rental diagram hardware specification on this link http://www.ine.com/downloads/voice_rack_rental_hardware_specifications_v1.2.pdf where it says for R3 the module that are needed are

    (Qty 2) VWIC-2MFT-E1

    Is that a typo?

    Sorry for my misunderstanding this

  • Yes, only 1 of those part numbers are needed. This will give you 2 E1 ports. If you had to order the part number VWIC-1MFT-E1 (if for instance this was all that was available to you), then you would need to order Qty 2. If you are able to order the VWIC-2MFT-E1, then there are already 2 E1 ports built in - one for data and one for voice. This goes the same for the T1 part numbers in R1 and R2.
