I have seen two different types of connectors for multiplexors.

1. Leased line (usually 2 pair). Will be either a screw-on connector
   or a phone type of connector to hook them up.

2. Synchronous modem. Will have a DB-25 connector for the modem.
   Depends on the mux if it will work with some cross-over cable.

Your best bet would be to find a manual for the device, and see
what it says you can do. Micom.com exists, as part of Nortel,
but a quich search didn't pull up anything. Try that, or a google
