SBS Technologies has expanded its line of AdvancedMC modules with the Telum 1204-O3 intelligent multi-service interface module. Aimed at convergent gateway and ATM-to-IP interworking applications like convergent 3G wireless, VoIP, media gateways, DSLAMs, and switch/routers, the Telum 1204-O3 can independently interconnect between any supplied protocols, which can be selected on a per-port basis. For increased adaptability, a full set of IP services can be offered over any Layer 2 protocol, including ATM AAL5, PPP, and Ethernet.
The module enables high-performance packet processing, directly terminating and switching traffic on the card rather than by sending traffic to an off-board processor. This enables system designers to build high-performance communications systems using a distributed processing architecture.
It supports local port-to-port Automatic Protection Switching (APS) to enable continuous service in the event an OC-3 link should fail. The Telum 1204-O3 can operate in OC-3 multi-mode or OC-3 single mode for configuration flexibility. A RoHS version will be made available. Pricing starts at $2799.
