PSTN 12 CO lines ---Adtran---T1---Cisco 2600---Internet
I am new to ADTRAN, so I am asking if it needs a configuration to communicate to Cisco router. If you can provide me with sample configuration regarding ADTRAN and Cisco router 2610, it will be very appreciated, because this case is very critical to me!
Secondly, I could not get the type of signaling running on the CO LINES (is it loopstart or groundstart) but I could say that they are normal analog lines that come form telecom (I could connect a phone to any line and I can talk), so in a similar case what will be the signaling type? Should I busy out the unused timeslots on the Cisco T1 interface?
If the analog lines you are using work with a standard phone set (meaning you can dial out and connect a call), they are Loop Start lines. The T1 signaling protocol must also be set to Loop Start between the Adtran and the Cisco 2600. To do this on the Cisco 2600 you need to have a CAS Group configured for Loop Start. You can choose to only include the first 12 channels in the CAS group.
