Introduction to 4-Wire Systems

When connecting to 4-wire equipment the following applies:

  • To minimize noise and meet regulatory requirements, use screened (shielded) cable when connecting 4-wire ports.

  • Pinout configuration (Port Function) can be set on all the Arcadia Station 4-wire interfaces. This is a software switch that switches the configuration of the pins on the RJ45 connectors according to the device you are connecting to. Default setting: 4-wire-X.
