FRM220-FXO-4/FXS-4 are 4 channel POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) over fiber converter/extender. The four POTS connection usesstandard RJ-11C modular connectors for each copper pair connection. A pair of FRM220-FXO-4/FXS-4 is required to implement an endto end system. FXO type unit connects to a telephone line (PSTN) or PBX station line and has ability to detect ringing voltages and to actas a telephone. FXS type unit is the reciprocal unit and has ability to act as PSTN and connects to a telephone device. Two FXS cards maybe connected back-to-back to provide a private "hot line"
When the FRM220-FXO-4/FXS-4 cards are placed in the FRM220 rack with SNMP management, in-band management allows configuringand viewing the card and remote converter's status, type, version, fiber link status, on hook status and alarms. When placed in a single slotchassis and used standalone without management, the card may be configured by DIP switch.
