Are you using a Motorola Quantar™ or ATAC-3000™ with an Astro Modem™ or V.24 Card? Would like to interconnect your equipment over Internet Protocol? ACG is pleased to announce the availability of a new package for the RIC-Mz that is designed to be installed internally in the Quantar™ or ATAC-3000™ (on the Wireline Card). This version of the RIC-Mz can replace either the Astro Modem™ or V.24 Card and in addition allows units lacking a V.24 Card to utilize the RIC-M for Digital operation without a 50 pin ribbon connector to connect the RIC-Mz to the Wireline Card.
The advantages of the new configuration are:
- Lower Cost
- No external “wall” power supply (the new RIC-Mz is powered from the Wireline Card)
- Fewer cables
- No need to find a location to install the external RIC-Mz
The new RIC-Mz retains all of the capabilities of the current RIC-Mz as well as the faster processor (2 ½ times the speed) and security (https) of the latest RIC-Mz.
In essence, installation of the new Wireline RIC-Mz makes the Quantar™ or ATAC-3000™ Internet Protocol capable by replacing the V.24 or copper POTS connection with TIA Standards compliant IP.
Use of the Wireline RIC-Mz in a Quantar™
In the case of a Wireline RIC-Mz installation into a Quantar™, the existing V.24 board (if there is one) or the Astro Modem™ card would be removed from the Wireline Card and the Wireline RIC-Mz would be installed on the 50 pin header on the rear of the Wireline Card. Standoffs are supplied to support the Wireline RIC-Mz in addition to the 50 pin header connection.
