|Leverage Existing Bulk Data Encryption for Data over IP
The IP•Tube RS530HS, whose synchronous serial interface is configurable as DCE or DTE, provides for the leveraging of existing synchronous serial bulk rate encryptors such as; KIV-7, KIV-19, OMNI and KG-84. The IP•Tube RS530HS encapsulates synchronous serial data from Data Terminal or Communication Equipment into IP packets. These IP packets are sent to a remoteIP•Tube RS530HS where the serial data is de-encapsulated and synchronously clocked into the remote Data Equipment. The IP connection provides for the transparent interconnection of Synchronous Serial Data Equipment via LANs, WANs, MANs, Satellite and Wireless Ethernet. Configured Data rates from 2.4 Kilobits per second to 16 million bits per second.

|Clocking and Bandwidth
The IP•Tube RS530HS are used to interconnect Synchronous Serial Data connections across Ethernet, which does not provide a common clock, an application appropriate method needs to be used to ensure that the clocking of the data out of one DTE and into the other DTE is not overrun or underrun. Additionally latency and overhead for the connection of data networks needs to be taken into account along with the bandwidth constraints.
The Engage IP•Tube RS530HS DCE provides the clocking to their attached Data Terminal Equipment. SCTCLOCK is used to clock Send Data from the DTE into IP packets that are sent to the interface S1’s TUBE ADDRESS. SCRCLOCK is used to clock the IP payload packet data from the buffer memory into the DTE. The IP•Tube RS530HS DCE has a sophisticated adaptive clocking circuitry that supports the smooth synchronous clocking required by Video Codecs and configurations that minimize latency and overhead such as those required for operation over Satellite.
Service Quality Packet Prioritizing
The IP•Tube RS530HS uses the Type of Service byte in the IP packets to prioritize the encapsulated data. The setting of the TOS byte can be used to ensure that the data from theIP•Tube RS530HS is ensured high priority.
Dual LAN Interfaces
All IP•Tube RS530HS models ship with dual 10/100BaseT Ethernet LAN ports. The dual Ethernet interfaces provide for:
. Management interface on LAN port 2 when LAN port 1 is connected to a VPN tunnel
. The LAN ports can be configured to support connections over 2 opposite ADSL links
. Alternator Option for load balanced SDSL interconnects
. Protector Option for Redundant Packet Path connections with Constant or Switch Over Criteria
VPN Network Management
The IP•Tube RS530HS's second 10/100BaseT Ethernet interface provides a management port when interconnecting the IP•Tube RS530HS through a Virtual Private Network. Each LAN interface of the IP.Tube.RS530HS features independent IP network configurations.
|HDLC over IP
IPTubes with HDLCoIP connect to the RS530HS leased line interface of an Enterprise’s WAN Router and encapsulate the HDLC frames into an IP Packet that is sent to the remote site IPTube where it is presented to the remote WAN router as the original HDLC frame. Enterprises are able to connect to broadband IP services through their existing proven WAN infrastructure. Internal Ethernet networks remain isolated and security services such as Firewalling are maintained.
Management of the IP•Tube RS530HS is accomplished with a Command Line Interface that is accessed through a Console or Telnet connection. Templates of the most common configuration provide for an Edit and Paste configuration. SNMP MIB I and II support is a standard feature.
All IP•Tube models include a Console port for configuration. The Console port may be used for serial communication from a local workstation, or for remote connection via a modem. IP•Tube models utilize an RJ45 jack for the Console port.
| IP•Tube RS530HS Optional Features
The protector option utilizes the second LAN interface as a redundant path for the interconnection of the IP encapsulated Synchronous Serial data. The extension of the RS530 circuit has a fault tolerant link that is configured to always on, or with switch over criteria.
Rack Mount Kit
