TDM ports

TDM ports

TDM ports

Can anybody explain what a TDM port is? I am going through my maintenance contract and it just seems like i have to many ports.

RE: TDM ports

station, trunk, announcement, med-pro.  Pretty much every port listed when you type "list config all"


RE: TDM ports

Avaya changed their Maintenance Terms several years ago to "Per Available Port".  If you have a lot of circuit packs with unused ports you can reduce maintenance costs by condensing and consolidating down to just what you need and use the packs you pull out for future growth.  The packs have to be physically removed or they are considered 'Available'.

RE: TDM ports

TDM means Time Domain Multiplex. In the case of these switches people are usually referring to the DS-1 port used to create the physical layer of a Trunk. TN767 is a typical board for this.

RE: TDM ports

TDM means Time Division Multiplex.

Basically any port (anolog, digital, CO, ISDN) that is connected directly via a wire to the PABX.

In avaya lingo you have IP station ports for stations (those talk to a CLAN and a MEDIA PROCESSOR (or MEDIA RESOURCE).
And you have TDM station ports that are connected wita wire to a TNxxxx board  

Please let me know if the information that was provided is helpfull.
