DSX equipment acts as a cross-connect interface between network elements while providing intrusive or non-intrusive test access in Central Offices, CEV’s and huts.

The DSX-1 allows permanent cabling at DS1 (1.544 Mbps) digital signal rates that cross-connects between network elements such as office repeaters, digital switches, channel banks, digital loop carriers, multiplexers, and digital loop switches. The DSX-1 enables terminating, rearrangement or temporary patching of DS1 circuits as trouble occurs or traffic demand and patterns change. Each network element can be permanently cabled to a DSX-1 terminal or can be temporarily connected using a cross-connect jumper or patch cables between two DSX-1 terminations. 

The DSX-3 solution is a centralized cross-connect interface between network elements. The DSX-3 consists of the chassis and can be equipped with up to 32 modules. The all-BNC interface DSX-3 provides connectivity between office repeaters, fiber optic terminals, digital loop carriers, multiplexers, and digital cross-connect systems at DS3 (44.736 Mbps) digital signal rates.

The Mini DSX-3 has 12 slots for up to 6 x SA-2116-0030 (Even) Modules and up to 6 x SA-2116-0031 (Odd) Modules.

CNI's DSX Cable Series allows the customer to select the DSX Type (1 or 3), the Connector Type (BNC, BNC 735A, BNC 734A1, Mini/Midsize/Standard WECO and DIN-F and length of single or dual coax cable.

The CNI DSX-1 Rapid Tester enables the accurate testing and error-free certification of twisted pair cabling for up to 40 Gigabit Ethernet circuits on Cat 5e, 6, 6A, 8 or Class FA and I/II.
