incur significant recurring monthly costs for rigid
bandwidth leased lines used purely for the inter-connection
of PBXs and tele-com switches. The IPTube-QE1 provides
the ability to interconnect existing phone systems over
flexible bandwidth lines that are used to carry data,
voice, and video. Voice Only Leased Line Toll charges
assessed by long distance and local carriers are eliminated
by transporting voice and fax traffic across the enterprise
intranet, LAN, MAN or WAN.
The most compelling option for the interconnection of E1 based systems
is when it can be accomplished over a Local Area Network. The deployment
of Fiber based LANS such as FDDI and Gigabit Ethernet, provides
organizations with high performance and high quality bandwidth that
is especially well suited for the interconnection of PBXs and Telecom
Wide Area Networks that have sufficient bandwidth and Quality of
Service provisioning result very significant cost savings especially
for Multinational Corporations. The IP•Tube QE1C, a model
with lossless data compression, detects idle and redundant data
within each voice circuit resulting in a 40 to 1 bandwidth savings.
WAN bandwidth is not consumed by silence or redundant circuits.
IP Cellullar Back Haul
IP•Tube QE1s are used to provide transparent interconnection of the base stations (BTSs), base station controllers (BSCs) and mobile switching centers (MSCs) over IP/Ethernet packet-switched networks. Supported access media include fiber, coax and fixed wireless. Cellular phone service providers are able to save substantially by converting to a packet-switch network from circuit TDM lease lines. The IP•Tube QE1 has the duplicate packets transmission and reception feature that provides for resilient performance through a lossy interconnect.
Connecting phone systems across a wireless Ethernet connection has a return on investment that is measured in weeks. Eliminating the wired connection for the E1 based communication equipment is made possible with the IP•Tube’s E1 Over Ethernet capability.
Companies, that are able to provide IP/Ethernet access networks
generate new revenue by offering traditional E1
leased line and private line services, such as:
Cable operators connect traditional E1 leased line and private
line services over their hybrid fiber coax (HFC) cable networks. Metropolitan Area Networks
Metropolitan carriers with IP or Broadband Ethernet access networks
deliver traditional leased and private line services. Utilities
Utilities generate new revenue by offering traditional E1 leased
line and private line services over their fiber or power line
PBX Back Haul
The IP•Tube QE1 provides CLECs with a way to back haul E1
DS0s from a customer’s phone systems over their Internet connection.
The back hauled DS0s are connected to the CLECs phone switch for
connection to the Public Switched Telephone Networks. Competitive
Local Exchange Carriers are able to provide customers with a very
economical alternative to the local Phone Company since the Local
Loop charges for each phone line are consolidated.
Telcos reduce costs by delivering profitable leased and private
line services over their flexible Ethernet infrastructures.
The IP•Tube QE1’s most dramatic cost savings is when
it is used for the international interconnections of TDM based telecommunication
equipment. The IP•Tube E1 is interoperable with the European
TDM standard E1.
