IPmux-1/IPmux-1E provide a
compact, minimal configuration solution for transporting E1/T1, ISDN-BRI,
and FXS services over IP and Ethernet based networks. IPmux-1/IPmux-1E
take the data stream from its user ports and converts it to packets for
transmission over the network. The addressing scheme of these packets is
IP. These packets are transmitted via the IPmux-1/IPmux-1E Ethernet
network port to the network. A second IPmux at the remote location
converts the IP packets back to TDM traffic.
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E can function as
an Ethernet IAD (Integrated Access Device) that offers access of both
native TDM and bridged data over shared media, via its optional Ethernet
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E are standard IP
devices, supporting ICMP (ping), ARP, next hop and default gateway
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E can achieve
end-to-end processing delay as low as 3 msec, using high-performance
buffering and forwarding techniques.
IP packet size is configurable.
Greater packet length results in greater processing delay, yet smaller
An enhanced buffering mechanism
compensates for packet delay variation (jitter) of up to 300 msec in the
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E support VLAN
tagging and priority labeling according to 802.1(p&q)
The user can configure the ToS
(Type of Service) of the outgoing IP frames. This allows an en-route
layer-3 router or switch, which supports ToS (or Diffserv), to give higher
priority to IPmux-1/IPmux-1E traffic for delay-sensitive applications.
Assigned, IANA registered UDP
socket number for TDMoIP simplifies flow classification through switches
Rate limiting can be applied to
control the maximum traffic rate transmitted towards the IP/Ethernet
E1 OR T1 PORT (IPmux-1 only)
One standard E1 or T1 port
provides connectivity to any standard E1 or T1 device.
Integral LTU/CSU can be enabled
for line protection and long haul applications.
E1 UTP, E1 CX or T1 options are
Alarm detection and insertion
are supported together with error statistics. SES/UAS statistics, LOS/AIS
physical layer alarms and remote loop/local loop test modes are all
supported. Standard E1 or T1 alarms are supported end-to-end.
E1/T1 Framing - two types of
service are offered:
Unframed - IPmux-1 extends
full E1/T1 circuits transparently across the IP network, regardless of
Structured - IPmux-1 can be
configured for fractional E1/T1 services over IP networks. CAS can be
enabled. ISDN BRI 'S' PORTS (IPmux-1E only)
Four standard ISDN basic rate
'S' ports provide connectivity to any Network Termination (NT) or Terminal
Equipment (TE) ISDN device.
Phantom feeding function enables
IPmux-1E to power the remote user equipment (NT mode).
Each 'S' port supports remote
and local digital loopback test modes.

IPmux-1 is available with
either an AC or a DC power supply (IPmux-1E is available only with AC).
AC power supply supports 100 to 240 VAC and DC power supply supports -36
to -72 VDC.
DIAGNOSTICS & MANAGEMENT
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E support remote
loop and local loop testing.
IPmux-1 provides end-to-end
alarm generation and end-to-end AIS indication. When a local E1 or T1 port
receives AIS, it is passed to the remote port via the Ethernet/IP network.
If a local Ethernet port is not connected, an AIS indication will be
generated both in the local and the remote devices.
Physical layer alarms support:
IPmux-1 - E1/T1 port LOS, AIS,
IPmux-1E - ISDN 'S' LOF and
FXS port status.
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E perform an
internal built-in test (BIT) after power up. The results of the test are
visible via the local terminal.
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E monitor LAN and
IP layer network condition statistics such as packet loss and packet delay
variation (jitter). The events are stored in log files.
Software download is supported
via the local terminal, using XMODEM, or remotely, using TFTP. After
downloading a new software version, IPmux-1/IPmux-1E automatically saves
the previous version in non-volatile memory for backup purposes.
Similarly, copies of the configuration file may be downloaded and uploaded
to a remote workstation for backup and restore purposes.
IPmux-1/IPmux-1E can be
configured and monitored locally via an ASCII terminal, or remotely via
Telnet or RADview.
RADview HP OpenView, RAD's
SNMP-based network management system, allows monitoring and configuring
multiple IPmux devices through a user-friendly graphical display. Fault
isolation, statistics and event gathering are available. RADview HP
OpenView can hold a complete predefined IPmux configuration to shorten and
simplify field installation.
