- Broadband connectivity for remote/branch office over public IP and Frame Relay networks
- Encryption for IP VPNs and built-in firewall functionality
- Migration of legacy data networks to IP based infrastructure
- Dial backup capability for load sharing and disaster recovery
- Managed router services that can be configured and managed remotely from a carrier’s centralized network operation center (NOC)
The intuitive menu-driven craft interface makes configuration a snap and reduces the need for training. The operator picks the next step with one key stroke. Only those few parameters that are unique to each device, such as its name, require typing. There are no commands to learn. The same interface is accessible from a terminal on the dedicated serial port, via Telnet, or through the integral modem port.
Three levels of passwords restrict a user to read-only privileges or limited control, or allow full control, regardless of the access method. Full SNMP support eases integration with existing Office System Solution (OSS) systems. Also, guaranteed delivery of critical SNMP trap messages ensures that important event reports are preserved during network outages.
Remote diagnostics include traffic monitoring on any port, extensive statistics, data-scope analysis of protocols, and test configurations, such as loop-backs. All management functions are controllable from the NOC.
Out-of-band signaling: A signaling method in which network control and call setup signals are sent over a separate digital channel, called a signaling link. This method allows for the transport of more data at higher speeds since setup signals and transmission of user messages can be sent simultaneously.
The SP201 features a compact 1U height designed for budgeted space, with a capacity of up to 4 E1 or T1 interfaces on one Aggregate Card for the customer with low-end requirements. Depending on the software loaded on the one card, it can handle conversions for SS7, C7, PRI ISDN, NI2 ISDN, or CAS (R1, R2, DTMF).
The SP-201-SA is a very small, economical unit that provides one T1 or E1 trunk connection for protocol conversions between CAS (R1, R2, DTMF) and ETSI PRI ISDN or NI2 ISDN networks. It was developed specifically for PBX, IP-PBX, and video-conferencing applications.
