 T-1 wiring
How is a T-1 Line terminated at the d-mark and the patch panel?
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 04 Jan 2007
Dear Eileen,

This is really determined by the service provider and user, there is not any specific answer.

Most providers use either and 8 pin modular jack wired to RJ-48X or a DB-9 connector. See link to RJ wiring scheme http://www.levitonvoicedata.com/learning/wiring.aspx

At the customer patch panel I would normally suggest that they use RJ-48X panels so that the loop-back shorting bars are there when no patch cord is inserted. Again, the actual needs of the user may be different.
