Inverse Multiplexer uses TDM lines for networks.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring dual Gigabit Ethernet ports that support jumbo frames, IPLink(TM) Model 2888 bonds up to 4 T1/E1s for protocol-transparent channel up to 8 Mbps. Unit leverages existing TDM circuits to seamlessly interconnect MPLS/VPLS next-generation networks, while avoiding security issues associated with MPLS. It also transparently backhauls broadband traffic from remote POPs and network peering points, and delivers high-speed network access for bandwidth-hungry subscriber applications.

Patton Ships 8-Mbps Inverse Mux for Next-Generation Networks over TDM

The IPLink(TM) Model 2888 Inverse Mux creates a protocol-transparent 8-Mbps link over bonded T1/E1s, leveraging existing TDM lines to build NGNs for high- speed services IPLink(TM) Broadband Routers...Link up for less GAITHERSBURG, Md., Aug. 14 /- Patton Electronics - the industry leader in business-class network access, connectivity, and Voice-over-IP equipment - is now shipping their 8-Mbps T1/E1 Inverse Multiplexer that accelerates transition to next-generation networks (NGNs) and prolongs the useful life of existing TDM infrastructure. Featuring dual gigabit Ethernet ports that support jumbo frames, the IPLink(TM) Model 2888 Inverse Mux bonds up to 4 T1/E1s for a protocol-transparent channel of up to 8 Mbps. "Forget the fiber," said Joseph Gomez, product manager. "Why make costly infrastructure upgrades when you can use today's TDM network to deliver tomorrow's high-speed services?" The IPLink(TM) Model 2888 addresses key challenges that face carriers and service providers in the migration to NGNs. Patton's Inverse Mux leverages existing TDM circuits to: - Seamlessly interconnect MPLS/VPLS next-generation networks (NGNs), while avoiding the security issues associated with MPLS. - Transparently backhaul broadband traffic from remote POPs (wiMAX base stations, IpDSLAMs) and network peering points (MPLS routers). - Deliver high-speed next-generation network access for such bandwidth-hungry subscriber applications as streaming music and IPTV. "Our solution decouples the infrastructure from the transport technology," Gomez added. "All the next-generation protocols-including MPLS with stacked labels-can surf transparently across the old TDM network. We're the only manufacturer with the right recipe. Plus, it's extremely cost-effective." Patton's inverse mux delivers 1.5 to 8 Mbps over 1 to 4 fractional nx64 T1/E1s along with a unique mix of high-end features that includes VLAN-based active QoS, and CORBA management plane. The Model 2888 employs self-healing multi-link PPP to deliver a resilient, load-balanced connection that stays up - even with multiple failures in the underlying TDM circuits. Dual gig-Ethernet ports support jumbo Ethernet frames for complete transparency of all (bridged or routed) protocols. Two-packs of the 4-E1 version list for just $3970. Now through 15 October 2007, Patton's Prime Mover Advantage Promotion offers 30% off any IPLink(tm) Inverse Mux order.
