Ottawa, Canada A network access processor has been developed to deliver TDM packets over IP links. The processor emulates up to 32 T1/E1 lines, comprised of 1024 TDM channels, over IP/Ethernet links. On its TDM interface, the processor features a 32-stream, 1000x1000 non-blocking switch with separate connections to local and wide-area TDM ports. The TDM interface is served by a Stratum 4E digital PLL, which synchronizes TDM clocks to either remote or local sources. On the IP/Ethernet side, the processor offers dual redundant 100-Mbps MIIs and features a 33 MHz, 32-b PCI bus interface.
