CBM of America's newest family member of unique patch
panel technology products is the perfect companion for
Cisco routers. CBM Pancho-16 is a non-powered 16 port
interconnection patch panel that operates with Cisco's popular 16
port (NM-16A) and 32 port (NM-32A) asynchronous
modules. It not only eliminates the need for cumbersome
octal cable assemblies, but more importantly, CBM Pancho-16
provides each port with its own front patch panel switch that
allows for simple DTE / DCE mode selection.
CBM Pancho-16's unique design makes it the perfect
patch panel for quick and simple installations of
asynchronous connections. By eliminating the
requirements for octal cables, DTE / DCE adapters, and
special turnover cabling, network elements can be
consistently installed with ease and minimal effort. The CBM
Pancho-16 patch panel is also designed to fit ideally within the Central
Office in order to satisfy quality installation requirements.
Designed to reduce the many points of failure that are
traditionally associated with octal cables and terminal
adapters, CBM Pancho-16 patch panel increases network reliability
and greatly simplifies trouble shooting efforts.
CBM Pancho-16 patch panel is the most cost effective choice. CBM
Pancho-16's cabling solution is priced less than the
comparable dual octal cable alternative.
CBM Pancho-16 is truly the most reliable Cisco
companion of all.
Why Choose the CBM Pancho-16?
Standardization of wiring
Elimination of Octal Cables
- CBM Pancho-16 allows for the standardization of
wiring adapters. DTE / DCE operation is switch
selectable from CBM Pancho-16 patch panel's front on
an individual port basis.
Reduction of Rack Mounting Space
- CBM Pancho-16 patch panel eliminates "Spider" cables. Two 68
pin high density cables interface to 16 RJ45 ports
thus eliminating the need for octal cables.
- CBM Pancho-16 is incredibly compact. Minimal cabinet
space is required by CBM Pancho-16's one rack unit
height (1.75" height x 1" depth x 19" cabinet width)
thus conserving precious equipment rack space.
Adapters are available to fit 23" and 25" cabinets.
Increased Network Reliability
- CBM Pancho-16 increases network reliability. The
use of straight-through cabling significantly reduces
the potential points of failure within the physical
layer of the network.
Reduction in Cost and Installation Time
- CBM Pancho-16 patch panelcosts less to install. Incorporating
CBM Pancho-16 patch panel as the perfect companion for
Cisco dramatically reduces installation time
because there are fewer cables to sew in.

Ease of Installation in Three Easy Steps
||Mount CBM Pancho-16 patch panel in the equipment rack.|
||Connect the 68 pin high density cables to the Cisco 16 or 32 port asynchronous module and to the back of CBM Pancho-16 patch panel.|
||Set the DTE / DCE switches to the mode desired for each port's operation and connect the associated RJ45 cables to the network elements.|
Switch Selectable DTE / DCE Operation
Each of the 16 individual ports on CBM Pancho-16 operates in either DTE or DCE mode depending on the position of each switch
on the front panel. DTE mode is factory preset.
