TX Matrix Control Plane Cable Considerations


The control plane connections between the T640 routers and the TX Matrix router are provided by UTP Category 5 Ethernet cables between the RJ-45 ports on the TX-CIPs in the TX Matrix router and the Control Boards in the T640 routers. The maximum length supported is 100 m. The UTP Category 5 cables do not have to be the same length. The cable wiring is straight-through (not crossover).
