The compact, modular Kilomux
time-division multiplexer supports data, voice, fax and LAN traffic over
one or two main links, at rates from 9.6 to 1536 kbps each.
Kilomux can be connected to
services including leased line and DDS, as well as ISDN and Fractional
E1/T1. Main link buffers and echo cancellation on the voice channels
ensure full operation over radio and satellite.
Kilomux supports both analog and
digital voice interfaces for direct connection to PBX tie lines and
extensions, ISDN PBX extension lines, telephone handsets and E1/T1 trunks.
Kilomux uses time-division
multiplexing (TDM) techniques to ensure minimal delay and protocol
transparency, so that applications such as SNA and voice are assured the
bandwidth and short delay they require.
Kilomux traffic can be
transported over IP or Ethernet-based networks, using its TDMoIP main link
Kilomux enables transmission of
high quality voice (either compressed or uncompressed). It supports the
PCM (64 kbps)
ADPCM voice compression
techniques for voice, fax and data transmission (32 kbps)
MPMLQ voice compression
algorithm enable voice, fax and data transmission at rates ranging from
16 kbps down to 4.8 kbps
Supported standard fax and
data modem relay rates are between 14.4 to 2.4 kbps.
Kilomux can be used in point to
point applications between two sites, or in "V" or chain applications for
Kilomux supports two independent
configuration databases (day/night) and can switch between them in case of
any network event. This feature enables alternate routing in case of
Various timing modes are
available, enabling the system to take the received clock from a main
link, a sub channel or an internal oscillator clock.
KILOMUX PRODUCT LINE
The Kilomux product line
features two chassis models for different network needs. The modular
Kilomux design makes it easy to upgrade and customize by adding I/O and
Kilomux-2100 is a modular, 3U
high device that supports system modules, up to 12 I/O modules, and
optional redundancy for main link and power supply. Kilomux-2100 features:
A powerful CPU, able to meet
Software download capability
to facilitate system upgrades
Full SNMP agent, providing
improved RADview support (faster operation, capable of multiple unit
management from a single station)
Ethernet management port
With its compact size of only
1U, the Kilomux-2104 was designed for applications at smaller sites.
Kilomux-2104 supports up to 4 I/O modules, and is limited to a single main
link and a single power supply.
Kilomux-2100/2104 are functionally compatible with the Kilomux-2000/2004,
and support all Kilomux 2000 I/O, Main Link and System Modules.
MAIN LINK MODULES
Several different types of
Kilomux main link (KML) modules are available for compatibility with
various digital data service interfaces and public services.
V.36/RS 422/RS-530, X.21, G.703, standard CSU/DSU for DDS services,
Fractional E1/T1, ISDN Basic Access.
TDM over IP main links
support interfaces for 10/100BaseTx and fiber optic interfaces for
100BaseF Ethernet networks.
The Kilomux-2100 supports
up to two main link modules. The second main link module can be used
as a redundant link for backup, or as a load-sharing link to provide
Kilomux's Common Logic
control module monitors system operation, sets configuration and
ensures communication with the management station. Common Logic
modules can also be ordered separately for special purposes.
KDI is a system module
that provides Drop & Insert functionality for dual-link
Kilomux-2100, by bypassing any channel or combination of channels
between link A and link B (see the Applications section on the
following page). Refer to the separate KDI data sheet for more
Up to 12 I/O modules can
be accommodated by the Kilomux-2100 chassis. Up to 4 modules can be
accommodated by the smaller Kilomux-2104.
High Speed KHS Modules
Kilomux high-speed sync
data modules operate at selectable data rates from 2.4 to 614.4 kbps
per channel. Interfaces supported include V.35, V.36/RS 449, X.21,
RS 530, as well as BRI ISDN, G.703.
Low Speed KLS Modules
Low speed sync/async
modules and statistical multiplexing data modules operate at
selectable data rates from 0.3 to 64 kbps per channel.
Voice KVC and
Data Modem KVF Modules
Support is provided for
standard PCM and 32 kbps ADPCM voice, or high quality compressed
voice. Advanced speech coding techniques include G.723.1 MPMLQ,
which offers very high quality voice at bit rates as low as 6.4
kbps, and PCELP at 4.8 kbps.
modules support automatic fax/data modem identification; enabling
Group III fax and data modem transmission at rates up to 14.4 kbps.
Both analog and digital
voice interfaces are supported for connection to PBX tie lines,
extensions or directly to telephones, as well as to E1/T1 trunk
connections and ISDN PBXs.
Ethernet and Token Ring
Internetworking modules connect between remote Ethernet and Token
numerous test features for easy maintenance and fast fault
detection. On power-up and during normal operation, automatic
self-test and link-tests are performed. Any problems are reported to
the system management.
Local and remote loops can
be performed for every main link and I/O channel via user commands.
Additionally, a built-in BERT can test any I/O data channel.
Kilomux system operation
and management - including configuration, diagnostics, and
monitoring of the local and remote units - can be performed via
ASCII terminal, Telnet or RADview.
An ASCII terminal can be
connected locally, through a dial up modem or via Telnet.
RADview Management System
RADview, RAD's Network
Management System running over PC or UNIX (HP OpenView), enables
complete monitoring and control of multiple Kilomux-2100/2104
chassis from a central station via a user friendly GUI.
The system provides direct
on-line supervision, configuration, diagnostics and alarm reception.
Storing all configuration information in non volatile memory ensures
data integrity in the event of power failure
