What is a multiplexer?

I'm actually kind of embarrassed to ask this, since my wife constantly talks about this kind of stuff, and I feel like such an idiot. I have absolutely no idea what a multiplexer is. Can anyone provide a detailed information for a technically challenged guy?

Re: What is a multiplexer?

In networking a multiplexer separates the voice-frequency signals from the high-speed data traffic on your telephone line and controls and routes digital subscriber line traffic between the end-user equipment and the network service provider's network.It has got multiple inputs and a selector that connects a specific input to the single output.

Reset 90-0667-05 to vt100

If you log on to SP1 using VT100 and you get garbage the port is properly set for CPSS and you will have to use a craft interface to log on talking CPSS to the node. The S1 switch on the control card is to reset the database on the node, but you can also use this to reset the SP1 port back to very careful doing the following procedure as you can delete the database. Power down the node and press and hold in S1 then power up the node still pressing in S1, look at the the display it will after going trough it's start up process display a "0" ...release S1 and press S1 again....this will reset your SP1 to VT100 and you will be able to log on again. "0" reset SP1 and if it display a "1" and you carry on you will delete the database. As I warned you the "1" will delete the database, if for some reason you are stuck on "1" just power done the node without pressing S1 and it will restore as previous setting....good luck!!!

Hi ppater,

This is likely to be a clocking issue, common in PDH networks. If you provide more details on the application you are working in I can suggest a clocking setup to rectify this issue.

Broken Polycom Multiplexer QUAD BRI

I have had similar situations with the multiplexer where individual lines stopped working. I would recommend to just go to ebay and search for a replacement there. The used devices are usually so cheap that it is not worth opening up and repairing the quad bri.
