We have a problem that we have exhausted all available resources
on solving, and we are running into a dead end. We have several T1
circuits, from various LECs provisioned into a single MX-2800 MUX at our
location. We then tie that mux into a PA-MC-T3 card on a 7507 in a
VIP-2-50 to terminate the circuits. The DS-3 cabling is 25 feet in
length and we have (per Cisco reccomendations) a 6 db attenuator on the
PA-MC-T3 RX leg. We are running CBIT, w/ the MUX providing timing.
We continue to receive LCVs, C-Bit and P-Bit framing errors, and the DS1
circuits will occasionally bounce.
So far we have tried:
1. Replacing the cabling.
2. Replacing the attenuators.
3. Replacing the PA-MC-T3 card.
4. Replacing the MX-2800 MUX.
5. Replacing the VIP-2-50 card.
6. Changing clocking directions.
We are running the following IOS:
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software
IOS (tm) RSP Software (RSP-IK9SV-M), Version 12.3(15), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)
We have talked to a Cisco engineer who was at a loss. We talked to a user
of this list who appeared to have the same problem, and he said his
solution was to run a 75 foot cable w/ an attenuator on the end of it. We
have NOT done that yet.
I CANNOT find anyplace to buy the ATTEN-KIT-PA online. Our thoughts are
perhaps we can use progressivly higher attenuation (10,12,16,18 db) but I
cannot order the kit anywhere. Cisco directs me to Insight, who doesn't
Anyone have any suggestions?
