Chapter 1 - Installing and Accessing the REX2

The Campus-REX2can be installed into either aCampus-Starchassis (paired with aCampus-RSor-HRSLine Unit) or into aCampus-RSor-HRSdesktop unit. The , installed into either, provides one end of aHigh-bit-rateDigital Subscriber Line (HDSL) transmission system. When connected to anotherCampus-RS,Campus-HRS,Campus-T1®,Campus-768®,orCampus-E1®desktop unit or a line unit in another chassis, the Campus system transports digitized voice, data, and video signals over existing copper wire at an HDSL rate specified by the user from a range of rates up to 4.608 Mbps.

When the Campus-REX2is installed in aCampus-HRSdesktop unit or with aCampus-HRSline unit (or older), only T1, E1, and 768 Mbps data rates are supported.

INSTALLING THECAMPUS-REX2

The following sections describe how to install the Campus-REX2RS Interface Card into either a:

Campus desktop unit on page 1-3

Campus-Starchassis onpage 1-4

Ensure that the Campus-REX2is installed into aCampus-RSorCampus-HRSdesktop unit or into aCampus-Starchassis with aCampus-RSorCampus-HRSline unit only. TheCampus-REX2will not operate if it is installed in an earlier version of these Campus products.

Ensure that you read important information on surge protection for HDSL line installation in the line unit or desktop unit manual before installing the Campus-REX2interface card.

For information about compatibility between the Campus-REX2and other Campus products, refer to“Product Compatibility” on page 136.

For information about products that comprise a Campus system, refer to “Composition of a Campus-RS System” on page 120.

Chapter 1 - Installing and Accessing the REX2

Installing into a Desktop Unit

Install the Campus-REX2interface card into aCampus-RSorCampus-HRSdesktop unit before you install the desktop unit (install power and HDSL cables). Install theCampus-RSdesktop unit using the instructions in the

Campus-RSDesktop Unit User Manual.

Ensure power is off to the desktop unit before you install the Campus-REX2.Installing the card with the power on may cause damage to the desktop unit, the card, or to both.

1Ensure that the desktop unit is not connected to power.

2Slide the Campus-REX2into the guide rails in the rear of the desktop unit.
