These cards allow the base card to support 4 analog loop-start trunks.

The analog phone ports do not include a ringing capacitor. Where this is a requirement, connection should be via a Master socket containing ringing capacitors.

If fitted to a base card with analog phone ports, during power failure phone port 8 is connected to analog trunk port 12.

Maximum: 4 per control unit.

IP500 PRI-U Trunk Card


This type of card allows the base card to support PRI trunk connections. The cards are available in single and dual port variants. The card can be configured for E1 PRI, T1 robbed bit, T1 PRI or E1R2 PRI trunks.

Maximum: 4 PRI port cards.

The IP Office supports 8 unlicensed B-channels on each IP500 PRI-U port fitted. Additional B-channels, up to the capacity of ports installed and PRI mode selected require IP500 Universal PRI (Additional Channels) licenses added to the configuration. These additional channels consume the licenses based on which additional channels are configured as in-service from port 9 of slot 1 upwards. D-channels are not affected by licensing.

The PRI-U V2 cards are functionally the same as previous PRI cards, but only supported with IP Office R11.1 FP2 SP4 and higher.
