Race announces high-density synchronous/asynchronous port modules.
Race Communications begins deliveries of new modules of synchronous/asynchronous high -density Cisco NM-16A/S ports for Cisco 2600XM chassis, 2691, 3631, 3660, 3725, 3745. The module provides a maximum transfer rate on the port of 128 kb in synchronous mode and 115.2 kb in asynchronous mode.
The new NM-16A/S module has 16 ports, which is twice as much as on the previous NM-8A/S module, and uses the Smart connection type Serial to achieve high port density. The same type of connection is used in the WIC-2T and WIC-2A/S interface cards.
Synchronous/asynchronous ports are the most versatile serial ports that support various protocols and applications, such as the concentration of low-speed WAN channels, terminal access channels, SDLC transport channels. Programmatically, the module is supported in all types of software, starting with version 12.2(15)ZJ and the first release 12.3T.
The cable types for NM-16A/S modules are given in the table
Cisco NM-16A/S modules are available to order, the cost of the module is $4800 (according to the GPL price list for 24 June 2003), delivered from the Race Communications warehouse in Moscow or within 6-8 weeks.
