IPTube T3

DS3 to Ethernet Converter

T3 Voice, Video and Data Over IP 
The IPTube T3 encapsulates DS3 circuits into IP Ethernet packets. The conversion of T3 circuits into packets enables organizations to dramatically reduce leased line costs by exploiting the efficiency of Ethernet networks. T3 Toll charges assessed by long distance and local carriers are eliminated or dramatically reduced for:
 • Competitive Local Exchanges  • Multi-Site Enterprises
 • Internet Service Providers  • Cellular Service Operators
 • Education: K-12 and      Universities  • Governments and Municipalities


Transparent Protocol and Signaling
The IPTube T3's transparent operation maintains the proprietary signaling required to support call conferencing, call forwarding, caller ID and SS7. Transparent support for Modem, Fax, or Data circuits. Preserves toll-quality voice across the network.

The IPTube T3's low latency T3 Over IP connection provides for the transparent interconnection of Private Branch Exchanges, Mobile Switching Centers, Telecom Switches and T3 based communication systems via:

 LANs, WANs, MANs, IP Satellite and Wireless Ethernet
IPTube E3 Standard Features  
 
Service Quality Packet Prioritizing 
The IPTube T3 uses the Type of Service byte in the IP packets to prioritize the encapsulated T3 frames. The setting of the TOS byte can be used to ensure that the real time TDM data from the IPTube T3 is ensured high priority. Additionally 802.1p/q VLAN tagging provides layer 2 prioritization.
 

Management Interface
Management of the IPTube T3 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, with traps, is a standard feature.

 
 IPTube T3 Options
Alternator Load Balancing Option
The IPTube T3-ALT Alternator option alternatively sends the IP packetized T3 frames on LAN 1 and LAN 2. The Alternator option enables the bandwidth required to transport T3 circuits to be split over two WAN connections.

Protector Option
The protector option utilizes the second LAN interface as a redundant path for the interconnection of the IP encapsulated T3 Circuit. The extension of the T3 circuit has a fault tolerant link that is configured to always on, or with switch over criteria.


 
Rack Mount Kit
The IPTube family is ready for your most demanding central office or data center environments. With the Rack Mount Kit, IPTube products are easily installed in 19" and 23" racks. Easy access to both front and rear sides facilitates technician maintenance procedures.
