4 x Ethernet over T1 (IP over TDM)


Orion Telecom Networks Inc. offers its 4 x Ethernet over T1 (IP over TDM) package in a 1U High, 19-inch rack-mountable chassis. It provides four 10/100BaseT (4 RJ-45) data interfaces on the user side which may be used to transport Ethernet traffic over a T1 link. The converter provides a simple and cost effective method to convert and transport Ethernet data over a T1 link.

4 Ethernet over T1 Converters

Ethernet over T1 is an Ethernet extension device utilizing TDM telecom infrastructure (of T1, DS3, SDH or microwave links carrying T1s ). It converts the Ethernet data into T1 frame format for transmission over the existing TDM (T1) links and then re-converts the T1 back into Ethernet data the far-end terminal, to BRIDGE two Ethernet LANs over the existing T1-based telecom network. The device can effectively utilize the existing TDM network to transport Ethernet data with low investment.

The equipment must be always installed and used in pairs, with one terminal being installed at either end of the T1 link.
