Targeting a variety of internetworking applications, SBS Technologies has just introduced the TelumTM 1204-O3. claiming it is the first intelligent multi-service interface module to be offered in the AdvancedMC format.
Designed for convergent gateway and ATM to IP interworking applications
like convergent 3G wireless, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Media
Gateways, DSLAMs and Switch/Routers, the Telum 1204-O3 can be independently interconnected between any supplied protocols, selectable on a per-port basis.
For increased adaptability, a full set of IP services is being offered over any Layer 2 protocol including ATM AAL5, PPP and Ethernet.
According to Rubin Dhillon, VP of Communications and Enterprise for SBS, the Telum 1204-O3 is essentially a gateway in an AdvancedMC module format specifically designed to facilitate the migration from legacy networks to IP-based networks.
It is designed to enable high-performance packet processing, directly terminating and switching traffic on the card rather than by sending traffic to an off-board processor. A multi-service card supporting ATM and IP
Interworking, it is capable of processing up to 750,000 packets per
The module supports local port-to-port Automatic Protection Switching (APS) to enable continuous service in the event an OC-3 link should fail. By using Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) connectors, said Dhillon, the Telum 1204-O3 can operate in OC-3 multi-mode or OC-3 single mode .
Available now, pricing for the Telum 1204-O3 AdvancedMC module starts at $2,799.
