Channelized T3 Trunk Card
The Cisco AS5800 universal access server supports a channelized T3 (CT3) ingress interface that
provides asynchronous aggregation of channelized interfaces and multiplexing on a single T3 facility.
The CT3 trunk card is installed in the Cisco 5814 dial shelf chassis in slots 0 to slot 5. The
Cisco AS5800 currently supports as many as two CT3 trunk cards.
This chapter explains how to remove and replace a CT3 trunk card in the Cisco 5814 dial shelf chassis,
and also includes steps for verifying and troubleshooting your trunk card installation and configuring
your software.
CT3 Trunk Card Overview
The CT3 trunk card contains an onboard M13 multiplexer, which multiplexes 28 separate T1 lines into
a single T3 line. Each CT3 trunk card installed in the Cisco 5814 dial shelf contains all necessary
functionality to terminate link signaling and incoming digital calls.
Figure 3-1 shows the CT3 trunk card.

    Access Server Hardware Installation Guide. Configuring the CT3 Trunk Card The Cisco 5814 dial shelf recognizes trunk cards only in dial shelf slots 0 to 5. Therefore, install trunk cards only in the first six slots. If you are replacing a dial shelf card by installing a new dial shelf card of the same type in the same slot, the system software recognizes the new dial shelf card interfaces and brings them up automatically.
