Patton's Model 2710RC T1/Fractional T1 CSU/DSU rack card connects to a space-saving, SNMP-manageable platform

The NetLink Model 2710RC Series are T1/FT1 CSU/DSUs that provide high-speed WAN connectivity in a rack card package. Patton's 2U (8.9-cm) redundant AC/DC rack chassis accepts up to 16 rack cards, saving valuable space in central site locations.

Netlink 2710RC is an excellent choice for terminating leased lines, Frame Relay backbones, Internet access, and LAN-to-LAN services. When terminating a T1- dedicated digital circuit, the NetLink 2710RC supports n x 56 kbps and n x 64 kbps framing for T1 and V.35, X.21, RS-530, or 10Base-T Ethernet interfaces.

The Netlink 2710RC supports D4/ESF framing options and AMI/B8ZS/B7ZS line coding. Data rates, framing, and coding options are programmed by DIP switches or from a VT-100 terminal with menu-driven software. The Netlink 2710RC also supports SNMP management from a NetLink Model 1001MC SNMP/HTTP rack card. A full range of system and diagnostic features make setup simple and easy.
