The Model 2888 Four-Port T1/E1 Multi-Megabit Inverse Multiplexer provides point-to-point high-bandwidth Ethernet/IP connectivity over bonded T1/E1 circuits. Dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports ensure easy connection to any LAN infrastructure.
In order to maximize the bandwidth utilization over the T1/E1 links, the Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux uses Multi-Link PPP to bond the individual circuits into one high bandwidth WAN link. Ethernet/IP traffic is transparently bridged over the link using PPP/BCP which adds minimal encapsulation overhead when compared to ATM.
Key features make the Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux an ideal solution for VLAN trunk extension. The Inverse Mux supports IEEE 802.1p/Q VLAN tagging and priority. VLAN tagged traffic that is received on any of the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces is transparently transported over the WAN to the matching Inverse Mux on the other side. The VLAN priority bits are inspected and the QoS of the individual Ethernet frames are preserved end-to-end. The Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux likewise supports VLAN tagging of Ethernet traffic.
ACLs allow Layer 3 filtering and Layer 3 based QoS of the VLAN and bridge connections. Filter by IP address, IP port or even protocol. Use the ACL to force an inspection of the ToS/DiffServ bits and preserve end-to-end QoS.
The 2888 Model Series boasts easy installation, offering CLI configuration via Console/VT-100 or Telnet/SSH, HTTP web based management, and SNMP. Patton's series of high-speed access routers offer the versatility and reliability demanded for business-class applications at the most affordable price.
The IpLink™ Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux comes standard with Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and is perfect for satisfying the need of bandwidth-hungry applications supporting Layer 2 bonding of T1/E1 WAN interfaces into high bandwidth logical ports.
Rapid service deployment is the key to grabbing market share, the lifeblood of carrier business economics. To overcome the lack of supporting facilities, carriers with access to inexpensive T1/E1 circuits can reuse the already installed TDM network to bridge the bandwidth gap and continue deploying broadband services in areas where the infrastructure is still developing. For carriers needing to backhaul Ethernet traffic from remote terminals, the IpLink™ Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux transparently extends Ethernet over bonded T1/E1 circuits. With jumbo Ethernet frame support, the Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux transparently passes all VLAN and Q-in-Q encapsulated traffic to simplify configurations while applying still ACTIVE Layer 2 QoS traffic shaping and filtering.
Enterprise IT Managers needing to bridge the bandwidth gap between a single T1/E1 and a T3/E3 will benefit from the IpLink™ Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux. The Inverse Mux transparently transports Ethernet over bonded T1/E1 circuits. Unlike other solutions which are difficult to configure, the Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux makes it easy to transparently Bridge Ethernet over the WAN while applying ACTIVE Layer 2/3 QoS, traffic shaping and filtering.
The growth of 3G data services is undeniable. However, when the fiber infrastructure is not in place, the cost of losing subscribers to competitors can amount to millions in lost revenue. For carriers needing to backhaul Ethernet traffic from 3G cell sites, the IpLink™ Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux transparently extends Ethernet over bonded T1/E1 circuits. With jumbo Ethernet frame support, the Multi-Megabit Inverse Mux transparently passes all Layer 2 Ethernet traffic to simplify configurations while applying ACTIVE Layer 2 QoS traffic shaping and filtering.
When the infrastructure needed to support subscriber services is not in place or when subscribers prefer to avoid emerging broadband technologies, carriers with access to wholesale T1/E1 circuits can reuse the already installed TDM network to bridge customer Ethernet traffic, avoiding endless hours of complex IP routing configurations and providing their subscribers a right-sized service.
