hybrid IPM - IP Multiplexer

TDM over IP Multiplexer
Leased Line Emulation for E1/T1 or Synchronous Data

hybrid IPM - IP Multiplexer

Transmitting voice and data in a transparent mode over IP networks, the hybrid IPM enables a cost-effective migration to IP packet technology using legacy PBX equipment and existing IP networks.

The hybrid IPM 1241/1211 transports PBX’s E1/T1 lines in various structured or unstructured modes as E1-over-IP or T1-over-IP.

The hybrid IPM 1242/1212 transports classic synchronous data lines like X.21 or V.35 together with their handshake signals.

The data are mapped into a special TDM-over-IP packet stream for transportation and routing over the Ethernet/ IP network. In order to ensure optimum transmission quality, QoS and VLAN tagging are supported. The combined signals will be extracted by the remote unit, timing information will be restored.
By using GHMoIP, data become routable over long distances.

A second Ethernet interface offers local workgroup access to the IP network or allows for cascading IPM devices.
Optical line transmission is available using the fiber optic option which is ideal for laser link applications. This allows simultaneous transfer of up to 4x 2.048Mbps of serial data and approx. 90Mbps of Ethernet data over freespace optic.
Configuration and maintenance are simplified via VT100, Telnet and SNMP management.

All 1-channel and 4-channel IPM devices are fully compatible, offering various applications like single end point or multipoint connections.

With the hybrid IPM family, both Enterprise and Carriers can save on access and equipment costs and create revenue offering TDM-over-IP or other different types of seamless new services over existing Ethernet networks.
