Cisco Systems ships the necessary number of Multi Access Blades with all Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server systems with E1 and T1 PRI configurations. A Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106 supports three Multi Access Blade configurations, and a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112 supports five configurations:


Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106

  • One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-16-PRI
  • One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-4-PRI
  • Two Multi Access Blade MP-MA-4-PRIs

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112

  • One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-16-PRI
  • One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-4-PRI
  • Two Multi Access Blade MP-MA-4-PRIs
  • One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-16-PRI and one Multi Access Blade MP-MA-4-PRI
  • Two Multi Access Blade MP-MA-16-PRIs



Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Servers with E1 and T1 PRI configurations also ship with either one or two breakout boxes and cables, depending on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system configuration.


Note: A Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system that is fully loaded with 960 E1 ports has two MP-MA-16-PRIs and requires two breakout boxes. A Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system that is fully loaded with 736 T1 PRI ports has two MP-MA-16-PRIs and requires two breakout boxes. Both these configurations need a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112.


The breakout box provides a standard RJ-45 telephony interface for E1 and T1 PRI Cisco Unified MeetingPlace systems. Cisco Systems ships the necessary number of trunk card interface cable assemblies (50-pin Amphenol cables) that connect the breakout box to the Multi Access Blade transition modules. Figure: 50-Pin Amphenol Cable shows the 50-pin Amphenol cable.

Cisco Systems ships the necessary number of E1 or T1 PRI telephony cables with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system. The number depends on the number of ports being activated. You receive one E1 telephony cable for every 30 ports in an E1 Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system, and one T1 PRI telephony cable for every 23 ports in a T1 PRI Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.


Looking at the back of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106, the Multi Access Blade transition modules begin in slot 1 on the bottom and move up to slot 6 at the top.


Looking at the back of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112, the Multi Access Blade transition modules begin in slot 1 on the right and move to the left.


The Smart Blades begin after the last Multi Access Blade and do not have any cables connected to them.

Connecting E1 or T1 PRI Telephony Cables with One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-16-PRI

To Connect the E1 or T1 PRI Telephony Cables with One Multi Access Blade MP-MA-16-PRI
  1. Locate the following items shipped with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server:
    • E1 or T1 PRI telephony cables.
    • Breakout box, which should already be mounted above the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server)
    • Trunk card interface cable assemblies (50-pin Amphenol cables).
  2. Attach the far end of the first E1 or T1 PRI telephony cable to the equipment that will connect with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
    In many cases, the other equipment has an RJ-48c socket in which to plug the E1 or T1 PRI telephony cable. Alternately, the other equipment will be connected to a punchdown block. In this case, you will need to determine the block's connection diagram and then connect to it with discrete wires from the cable.
  3. Plug the other end of the first E1 or T1 PRI telephony cable into the RJ-45 jack, labeled 1, on the far left of the front of the breakout box. Continue from left to right as needed. See Figure: Breakout Box (Front View).
