3460 Fast’R Series Overview
The 3460 Fast’R Series of network managed enterprise modems offers the performance and reliability you’ve come to expect from Motorola, a worldwide leader in high speed analog technology.
Fully supporting the V.34 standard, Fast’R modems offer optimum performance over any telephone circuit with line speeds up to 33.6Kbps and actual throughput up to 230.4Kbps.
The 3460 Fast’R Series of networking modems is ideal for corporate environments — from backbone links to small/home
office. Support for both asynchronous and synchronous operation over dial and two or four wire leased lines means the
3460 Fast’R Series modems can be used anywhere, anytime for a variety of applications. Whether your network needs
are connectivity for SNA connections, link back-up, LAN-toLAN connections, file transfers or remote LAN access, 3460
Fast’R modems have the flexibility to fit. Manufactured to
meet Motorola’s stringent quality standards, these products
offer maximum uptime and reliability.
Motorola's own Fast’RVu configuration software ensures
rapid and efficient network deployment. Fast'RVu allows you
to configure, monitor and test both local and remote modems over a separate network control
channel - that means no interruptions in data transmissions.
A new look for the Motorola corporate modems, the Fast'R Plus standalone offers LCD front
panel for your interactive fingertip control of option selections and modem configuration, while
the Fast’R standalone and AccessWay nest cards offer front panel Speedbar LEDs which illuminate to display at-a-glance configured line rate and actual data rates.
Based on Motorola’s award winning 326XFast V.34 Series of modems, the 3460 Fast’R Series is
feature rich. In addition to basic modem features, such as ITU V.34 compliance, Hayes AT and
V.25bis command support, the Motorola 3460 Fast’R series offers:
Reliability and
■ Synchronous and asynchronous operation
■ Fast’RVu configuration, command and test software (via world wide web)
■ Software Download functionality with FLASH memory
■ Extensive security features including callback with password and quiet answer
for Today's
■ Fast'R PLUS standalone with 16-character LCD front panel with pushbuttons
■ Fast'R Standalone and stackable units with Speedbars
■ Dual 2-wire modem cards for 32 modems per nest or single 4-wire modem cards
for 16 modems per nest
■ 3460 daughter card for use with Motorola Vanguard® Series products
See your Motorola Representative for country availability
■ Preset options for out of the box operation and optional user definable configurations
■ Automatic busyout on DTR and DTR activated dialing
Combine all these features with Motorola’s reputation for quality and reliability and you have a
winning solution for all of your networking modem needs!
The 3460’s Fast’RVu Windows-based PC application is an
industry first. Providing easy configuration and test with
pull-down menus, graphic displays for device and line status, and the ability to save and copy configurations from
one modem to many or to a PC file. This means network
implementation has never been easier! Plus, use Fast’RVu
to upgrade your 3460 modem’s software to the latest
release. Fast’RVu will automatically download software
upgrades to one or multiple modems in release 2.0 or
greater. Release 3.0 will also include automatic dial restoral
functionality. Fast’RVu operates without disrupting your
data - by using a management port on each 3460 Fast’R
modem or 3460 AccessWay nest.
Full Network Management
SNMP Network manageability, using the Motorola 9000UX or 9000-PC, is a standard feature in the 3460 Fast’R.
Each Fast’R modem is secondary channel management
ready to provide complete end-to-end non-data disruptive
management for alarm and event reporting and tracking.
Our advanced management application provides efficient
dial pool management allowing you to optimize your network with accurate utilization/availability reporting.
Combining the 9000 Open Management System (OMS)
with the 3460 Fast’R networking modems gives you control of your network facilitating proactive maintenance for
maximum uptime.
Standalone, Stacked, Nested
or Daughter Card for Vanguard
To meet your network requirements and space constraints,
the 3460 Fast’R modems are available as standalone units
and as single or dual modem cards for installation in the
3460’s AccessWay enclosure. 3460 Fast'R PLUS standalone modems offer LCD display, and 3460 Fast'R standalone modems feature at-a-glance operational status with
six LEDs for EIA status and Motorola’s innovative speed
bars showing line rate and throughput in real time. With
the 3460 StackSix stacking kit, standalone modems are eas-
3460 FastR’Vu PC Screen Menu
ily stackable up to six units high. The StackSix kit
includes Fast’RVu PC configuration software and all
necessary stacking clips and cables for connecting up to
six standalone modems. Eliminate clutter at smaller
sites with Motorola’s 3460 Fast’R and StackSix kit.
The 3460’s AccessWay rack provides space savings for
larger network environments and is capable of housing
up to 16 dual 2-wire modem cards (32 modems total )
or 16 single 4-wire modem cards (16 modems total )in a
7 inch high nest enclosure. The 3460 AccessWay offers
hot swap of nest cards, with optional integral, automatic
busy out. This maximizes total network uptime by eliminating the need to power down an entire nest to service
each modem pair, while busy out ensures incoming calls
are directed to active devices. For those times when a
simple power cycle of a card is needed, use Fast’RVu to
reset one or more modems. With Fast’RVu and the 3460
AccessWay, you’ll never have to power down an entire
nest for simple maintenance.
The 3460 AccessWay Nest is available with switch selectable 100V, 115V, 220V, 240V AC or redundant -48V DC
power supplies. Active AC components are distributed
across each nest card for optimum power supply reliability. Telco line termination options are available via
RJ11 connectors or by mass termination, simplifying
cabling at central sites. The 3460 modem daughter card
expands the capabilities of the 3460 Fast’R product
introducing V.34 modem capability into the Vanguard®
Series FRAD product line.
