The iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUX multiplexs up to four T1/E1s and an optional 10/100 Ethernet onto a fiber optic transport link. The unmanaged T1/E1 Multiplexer provides an easy to use and cost effective multi-service solution.
The iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUXes operate in a back-to-back configuration, with one multiplexer at each end of the fiber link. This easy-to-use and cost-effective MUX transports services from legacy TDM equipment across long distances that exceed the reach or capacity of copper. This includes applications such as T1/E1 extension, mobile backhaul and building-to-building PBX connectivity, making it ideal for Enterprise, Telecom and Utility industries.
The 4xT1/E1 MUX supports fixed-fiber and Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers, enabling easy adaptability to different fiber types, distances and wavelengths. The 4xT1/E1 MUX supports multimode, single-mode, single-mode single-fiber, in standard and CWDM wavelengths.
The 4xT1/E1 MUX supports standard T1, E1 and Primary Rate Interface (PRI), voice or data. The MUX also supports AMI, B8ZS and HDB3 line codes. DIP-switches provide easy configuration of the T1/E1 line codes and line build-out.
The copper interfaces feature four RJ-48 connectors for balanced T1/E1 applications. An optional adapter cable is available to convert each RJ-48 interface to a BNC interface for unbalanced E1 transport applications.
The 4xT1/E1 MUX features user-selectable local loop-back on both the copper and fiber ports, remote fiber loop-back and circuit test modes. This functionality facilitates diagnosis of the remote unit, and minimizes the need for test equipment and support personnel at each end of a link. Alarm relay and LEDs provide fault notification for loss of power, LOS and AIS.
The 4xT1/E1 MUX is a compact, unmanaged standalone unit available in both AC and DC models. The AC model accepts AC power input ranging from 100VAC to 240VAC, 50/60Hz, while the DC model accepts 18VDC to 60VDC.
Enterprise Application: PBX to PBX Connectivity
In this application, four T1s are extended between two PBXs using an iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUX at each end of a fiber link. Multimode or single-mode fiber can be used, and fiber links can be extended up to 120km using single-mode fiber.
Telecom Application: Mobile Backhaul
In this application, a pair of iConverter 4xT1/E1 MUXes are used to extend up to four T1s from the TDM Network and an Ethernet connection from the IP Network to a Cell Site. The 4xT1/E1 MUX provides a cost effective multi-service platform capable of delivering Ethernet and TDM services over a fiber link. Multimode or single-mode fiber can be used, and fiber links can be extended up to 120km using single-mode fiber.
