Analog signal - cable and jack requirements for adtran 908e

We are having an Adran 908e installed in our server room.  It is converting one digital signal to analog for our fax line on our copier.  The company doing our data cabling says they will use a universal Cat6 connector connected to the Cat6 cable coming in at the wall.  Is this standard?  The wall jacks in our current building have 2 each for data and one for analog phones/fax.

Re: Analog signal - cable and jack requirements for adtran 908e

I'm not sure what they mean by a "universal Cat6 connector", but would guess that it's an 8-pin modular jack. Cat6 is certainly far more than adequate for an analog fax machine. A standard RJ-11 plug will fit an 8-pin jack and make contact with the middle two pins which will work for your fax machine.

On the TA908e you can either punch down 25-pairs to the Amphenol connector or get a "harmonica" type connector which is far easier if you're only using one or two FXS ports. We use the Allen-Tel AT153AM-01 available at Graybar, Amazon, etc.

Thanks Jay. That answers my question. By universal he meant it will accept the RJ-11 as well. I am in the process of learning.

Thanks,
