The iConverter Modular T1/E1 Multiplexer transports up to sixteen T1/E1 circuits and 10/100/1000 Ethernet over a fiber transport link or CWDM channel. This flexible and scalable system is comprised of an iConverter TM3 fiber transport module, and one or more iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUX modules installed in a 2, 5 or 19-module chassis.
Each iConverter TM3 module and up to four contiguous iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUX modules combine to form a MUX group. A MUX group can connect with another MUX group at the opposite end of a dedicated fiber link. A MUX group can also interoperate with a Managed iConverter fixed-configuration T1/E1 Multiplexer.
Multiple MUX groups can be installed in a chassis, enabling high-density, star-topology deployments.
The iConverter Modular T1/E1 Multiplexer system is designed for service provider, enterprise, government and energy/utility networks.
Service provider and utility applications include mobile backhaul and business services that require delivery of multiple T1/E1s and/or Ethernet. High density configurations save rack space at the Central Office, and compact designs provide cost-effective demarcation at the cell tower or customer premises.
Enterprise and government applications include extension of multiple T1/E1 circuits from a service provider demarcation point, and building-to-building PBX connectivity.
The TM3 transport module has two Ethernet backplane ports for providing additional Ethernet connectivity to adjacent modules . A common application of this feature is to combine a 4-Port switch module in the adjacent slot to provide an solution with four additional 10/100/1000 ports.
The iConverter TM3 fiber transport module is available with fixed-fiber or Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. This enables easy adaptability to different fiber types (multimode, single-mode, single-mode single fiber), distances and wavelengths (standard and CWDM).
The iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUX module supports four copper RJ-48 ports for balanced T1/E1 applications. Adapter cables are available to convert each RJ-48 interface to a BNC interface for unbalanced E1 transport applications.
The 4xT1/E1 MUX module features an optional external clock port that can be configured as a clock input or output. As an input, the port can be connected to an external clock source, such as a GPS receiver, to provide a common clock for the module. As an output, the port can provide the recovered T1/E1 clock from port 1 to other TDM equipment at the site.
