  • Page 29 Signaling Standards Supported The synchronous serial ports available for the router support the following signaling standards: EIA/TIA-232, EIA/TIA-449, V.35, X.21, and EIA-530. You can order a Cisco DB-60 shielded serial transition cable that has the appropriate connector for the standard you specify.
  • Page 30 Although manufacturing your own serial cables is not recommended (because of the small size of the pins on the DB-60 serial connector), cable pinouts are provided in the online document Cisco Modular Access Router Cabling Specifications on the Documentation CD-ROM that accompanied your router, and on Cisco Connection Online.
  • Page 31 Serial Connections Balanced drivers allow EIA/TIA-449 signals to travel greater distances than EIA/TIA-232 signals. The recommended distance limits for EIA/TIA-449 shown in Table 2-2 are also valid for V.35, X.21, and EIA-530. Typically, EIA/TIA-449 and EIA-530 can support 2-Mbps rates, and V.35 can support 4-Mbps rates. Asynchronous/Synchronous Serial Module Baud Rates The following baud-rate limitations apply to the slow-speed serial interfaces found in the asynchronous/synchronous serial modules:...
  • Page 32 The network end of the V.35 adapter cable provides a standard 34-pin Winchester-type connector. (See Figure 2-10.) V.35 cables are available with a standard V.35 plug or receptacle in either DTE or DCE mode.

  • Page 33 Serial Connections X.21 Connections The X.21 interface uses a 15-pin connection for balanced circuits and is commonly used in the United Kingdom to connect public data networks. X.21 relocates some of the logic functions to the DTE and DCE interfaces and, as a result, requires fewer circuits and a smaller connector than EIA/TIA-232.
  • Page 34 EIA-530 adapter cable is a standard DB-25 plug commonly used for EIA/TIA-232 connections. Figure 2-12 shows the DB-25 connector at the network end of the adapter cable. Figure 2-12 EIA-530 Adapter Cable Connector, Network End 2-20 Cisco 2600 Series Hardware Installation Guide...
