How do I wire/configure a PTP T-1?

I have 2 point to point T-1 connections. 1 from MA to AZ and 1 from MA to MS. I have a cisco 2821 router in MA with 2 CSU/DSU T-1 Cards and in AZ and MS I have cisco 1841 routers with CSU/DSU T-1 cards.

I wired the following
in both MA and AZ I wired from the smart jack to the T-1 Cards a T-1 Cable which is pins 1,2 and 3,4 straight through. I cut all the other twisted pairs off the cable. Cables have been tested for continuity and checked out ok. (RJ-45 ends)

This T-1 is up and running but it keeps dropping randomly. I've tried swapping CSU cards out, moving the router to the telco closet, messed with the config and still no help.

I have no errors showing up on the MA serial

I've called Sprint and they have tested clean in AZ to the CSU and are saying that my issue is in MA but I'm not receiving any errors in MA?
The only thing I can think of at this point is to dispatch the telco to come in and test the smart jack for issues.

Jack Type on my cutover sheet on both sides says RJ-48C. framing and signalling is ESF/B8ZS and clocking is provided by the provider.

I'd be more than happy to post any more info about this.

Is this a typo or is this really how you wired the RJ-48C?? Is should be wired like the diagram at this link

http://www.zytrax.com/tech/layer_1/cables/tech_rs232.htm#t1


Pin         Signal
1            RX1
2            RX2
3           FGND
4            TX1
5            TX2
6           FGND
7             NC
8             NC

If it's wired the way you say, you only have half of the TX pair and NO Grounds which could definately cause some problems.

Cheers,

Gary

Gary,

I used your diagram from the website and still getting the same response

I used the following
OW    --------B
O       --------BW
GW    --------GW
B       --------OW
BW    --------O
G       --------G
I did not pin 7,8

Highly suggest you just get a tested good CAT5 standard Ethernet patch cable and use it instead.

These are typically either cabling issues (see above), or clocking issues.

>This T-1 is up and running but it keeps dropping randomly.
Which end is providing the T1 clocking?

Suggest in MA set the clocking source:
 interface ser 0/0/0
   service-module t1 clock source internal

AZ will remain the default clock source line and will syncronize with MA
After you set the clocking source, bounce the circuit in AZ (shut/no shut the interface)

I ended up switching the cable back to a straight through cable on both ends. I called sprint and they were providing the Clock. After they shut off the timing and I entered the commands

service-module T1 timeslot 1-24
on both routers

serrvice-module T1 clock source internal
on my MA(HQ) router


I got up and up.

I was told by a tech that the RJ-48C cable is typically used in a voice T-1 installation.

do you need the service-module T1 timeslot 1-24 if you are not channelizing the t-1?

>do you need the service-module T1 timeslot 1-24
No. This is the default config for the module and unless you have a fractional t1, you don't need to change it.

Glad you go it working.  Not sure I understand your message after mine. It looks like you are crossing colors (blue/white-blue, orange/white-orange, etc..)

Anyway, no matter.  lrmoore got you going.

Cheers,

Gary
