N.A.T. introduces the newest members of its AMC telecom product range, the NAMC-STM1 and NAMC-STM4.
The NPMC-STMx is targeted at telecom applications dealing with SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy), such as SS7, ISDN or 3G/3.5G mobile applications in optical OC3/STM-1 or OC-12/STM-4 and SONET environments.
By its unique combination of onboard devices the NAMC-STMx allows a transition from TDM based SDH/SONET networks to packet switching based infrastructures:
- the add/drop multiplexer/demultiplexer chipsets enable the user to add and/or drop any payload of an STM-1/STM-4 based SDH/SONET frame,
- the very efficient onboard SDH-to-I-TDM cross mapper allows flexible routing of each of the timeslots to and from the GbE fabric on AMC ports 0 and 1,
- the I-TDM controller supports both the 1msec and the 125usec modes.
Thus the NAMC-STMx serves as an ideal single board platform in applications like high density add/drop terminal multiplexers, edge routers, digital modems or digital cross-connect systems:
The NAMC-STMx provides two STM-1/OC3 or STM-4/OC12 optical fibre interfaces on standard SC-connectors at the front panel. Thus the NAMC-STMx is suited for operation in monitoring or termination mode. The optical transceivers are available for single or multimode fibres.
The NAMC-STMx is compliant with PICMG AMC.0 (R2.0), AMC.1 and AMC.2 as well as PICMG SFP.0 and SFP.1. It can be plugged onto any ATCA carrier board or into any MicroTCA system.
N.A.T. offers a wide product range in data, networking and (tele-)communication for industrial bus-standards and systems as AMC, µTCA, VMEbus, CompactPCI, PMC, PCI and many others. This product offering is completed by various software solutions.
