The in-line modular TAMs are designed to plug straight into the DSLAM and have male and female connectors. On new installations, the module is plugged and secured to the DSLAM and the original cable is plugged into the modular TAM. Retrofit takes a few hours, the cable is removed from the DSLAM, the modular TAM inserted and the cable reconnected.
This is the cheapest option for in-line TAM, no additional cables, no extra cabinets, they simple fit into the existing DSLAM rack. Partial installations are also possible, adding additional modules as the customer base expands.
The installation teams will be provided with all the tools required to carry out a retrofit installation.
