IPmux-16 ® TDMoIP Gateway • The primary benefit of IPmux-16 is allowing transparent E1/T1 and E3/T3 connectivity over Layer 2/3 packet networks, both in carrier and enterprise environments. • IPmux-16 converts data streams of up to sixteen E1/T1 or up to two E3/T3, or up to two CT3 ports and converts them into packets for transmission over the network. The addressing scheme of these packets is IP-based. The packets are transmitted via the Ethernet modules to the network. A remote TDMoIP gateway converts the IP packets back to TDM traffic. • IPmux-16 is a standard IP device, supporting ICMP (ping), ARP, next hop and default gateway capabilities. • IPmux-16 complies with the TDMoIP protocol, working in conjunction with RAD’s IPmux-1E IPmux-11, IPmux-14, IPmux-8, Megaplex ML-IP, Kilomux KML.11, and other third-party products that implement the TDMoIP protocol. • IPmux-16 features a dry contact alarm port that can serve as a general-purpose input port. The alarms are classified into three categories, stored in the event log, and can generate a system trap that is sent to an NMS. PERFORMANCE • IPmux-16 achieves end-to-end processing delay as low as 1.7 msec, using high-performance buffering and forwarding techniques. • Type of Service (ToS) of the outgoing IP frames is user-configurable. This allows an en-route Layer-3 router or switch, which supports ToS (or Diffserv), to give higher priority to the TDMoIP traffic for delay-sensitive applications. • Assigned, IANA-registered UDP socket number for TDMoIP simplifies flow classification through switches and routers. • IP packet size is configurable. Greater packet length results in greater processing delay, yet a smaller bandwidth overhead. • An enhanced buffering mechanism compensates for packet delay variation (jitter) of up to: 32 msec for E1 24 msec for T1 20 msec for E3/T3 42 msec for internal T1 in CT3. QoS SUPPORT • IPmux-16 supports VLAN tagging and priority labeling according to 802.1p&Q. IPmux-1E FXS APPLICATIONS separated by applying a dedicated VLAN tag to every TDMoIP circuit, and a dedicated VLAN for managing the device. 10/100BaseT • VLAN-based user traffic is E1/T1 IPmux-11 PBX Service POP 16 x E1/T1 or 2 x E3/T3 IPmux-16 RADview Management Station E1/T1 and E3/T3/CT3 Services Packet Switched Network Ethernet Switch Multi-Tenant Office Building IPmux-16 Enterprise 16 x E1/T1 or 2 x E3/T3 Ethernet Switch IPmux-16 Figure 1. Extending E1/T1 or E3/T3-Based Services over a Packet Switched Network OPERATION MODES • Two types of service are offered: Unframed: Full E1/T1 or E3/T3 circuits are transparently extended across the network, regardless of framing structure. Framed: IPmux-16 can be configured on a per-timeslot basis for fractional E1/T1 services over the packet network. CAS is supported. • Multibundling (grouping timeslots originating from a specific E1 or T1 port) can be performed for up to 31 bundles per E1 port and 24 bundles per T1 port for transport over the network. Both mesh and star topologies are supported. • IPmux-16 allows internal bundle cross-connect. TIMING • IPmux-16 maintains synchronization between TDM devices by deploying advanced clock distribution mechanisms. The clocking options are: Internal: The IPmux-16 internal oscillator provides the master clock source for the TDM circuit. Loopback: The transmit clock is derived from the respective port’s receive clock. Adaptive: The clock is recovered from the Ethernet network interface. External: An optional station clock port can be used to synchronize E1/T1 interfaces. ETHERNET MODULES • Two Ethernet modules can be installed in the IPmux-16 chassis, providing the uplink to the packet network. • Ethernet link redundancy to the network is supported when IPmux-16 is equipped with two Ethernet modules. • Each module supports a single 10/100BaseT or 100BaseFx port. • The network Ethernet modules re-order packets arriving from the network in the wrong order. E1 AND T1 MODULES • Each E1 or T1 module features either four or eight E1 or T1 interfaces, which enable connectivity to any standard E1 or T1 device. Integral LTU/CSU can be enabled for line protection and long haul applications. Alarm detection and insertion are supported together with error statistics. SES/UAS statistics, LOS/AIS physical layer alarms and remote/local loopback tests are all supported. Standard E1/T1 alarms are transmitted end-to-end. CHANNELIZED T3 MODULES • A channelized T3 (CT3) module converts T3 service signals into 28 unframed T1 streams, and each T1 stream into IP frames that are sent via a Fast Ethernet network. E3 AND T3 MODULES • Each E3 or T3 module features a single, standard E3 or T3 interface. • Alarm detection and insertion are supported together with error statistics. SES/UAS statistics, LOS/AIS physical layer alarms and remote/local loopback tests are supported. Standard E3 or T3 alarms are transmitted end-to-end. POWER SUPPLY • Modular hot-swappable power supplies of the chassis support carrier environments. The maximum power supplied by one unit is 75W with maximum power consumption of 57W. DIAGNOSTICS & MANAGEMENT • IPmux-16 supports remote and local loopback testing. End-to-end alarm generation and end-to-end AIS indication are also provided. If a local E1/T1 port receives AIS, it is reported to the remote port via the Ethernet/IP network. If a local Ethernet port is disconnected, an AIS indication is generated both in the local and the remote devices. • SES and UAS statistics are collected in 15-minute intervals and are stored for 24 hours (96 intervals). E1/T1 physical layer alarms (LOS, AIS, LOF, LCV) are also supported. 16 x T1 IPmux-16 RADview Management Station 12 x T1 IPmux-16 Packet Switched Network CT3 T3 IPmux-16 T3 IPmux-16 Figure 2. Extending T1 and T3 Circuits over IP/Ethernet IPmux-16 ® TDMoIP Gateway • A dry contact alarm port allows the device to send/receive alarms by opening/closing the contact between the connector pins. monitored: Locally via an ASCII terminal Remotely via Telnet or SNMP-based management software (RADview Service Center TDMoIP). • IPmux-16 monitors LAN and IP layer network condition statistics, such as packet loss and packet delay variation (jitter). The events are stored in log files and generate SNMP traps. SPECIFICATIONS • IPmux-16 can be configured and • RADview Service Center TDMoIP network management application provides TDMoIP service and manages the TDMoIP devices via a user-friendly graphical display that allows monitoring and configuring multiple IPmux devices. Fault isolation, statistics and events gathering are available. The Service Center’s intuitive GUI, "point-and-click" functionality and easy-to-follow wizards increase the efficiency and accuracy of the service provisioning process. • An internal built-in test (BIT) is performed after power-up. The results of the test are displayed at the local terminal. • Software download is supported locally using XMODEM, or remotely, using TFTP protocols. After downloading a new version of software, IPmux-16 automatically saves the previous version in non-volatile memory for backup purposes. Similarly, copies of the configuration file may be downloaded/uploaded to a remote workstation for backup and restore purposes.
