Does anyone know where I can find the layout for the Nortel BCM 50 RJ-45 Breakout Adapter Kit.

Also known as "Wiring field card"
For some reason I always thought they were RJ11, not RJ45...which does not make any sense at all.

The port numbers and symbols are printed right on it.

Far Left - Music, Page, Aux Ringer
Left - 8 Digital ports starting at port 501
Middle - 4 Trunk Ports
Right - 4 Analog Station Ports

Look for BCM50 Hardware and Installation guide (not on the BCM), page 15
or BCM50 R6 Installation and Maintenance (on the BCM), page 48/49

RE: RJ 45 Breakout Kit

You can make your own up by buying a typical Option 11 TJF cable that connects from underneath the relevant card slot and goes to the customers wiring frame. They are all 25 pair cables and are ideal to use to connect onto the BCM and you can then wire it to krone strips or onto a patching panel using 1 pair per port.

My home BCM 50 uses this. The thing to remember is that the colour coding is in reverse order from the standard format that is usually terminated.
