Leverage Existing Bulk Data Encryption for Data over IP

The IPTube RS530 DL provides for the leveraging of existing synchronous serial bulk rate encryptors such as KIV-7, KIV-19, OMNIxi and KG-84. The IPTube RS530 DL encapsulates synchronous serial data from Data Terminal or Communication Equipment into IP packets. These IP packets are sent to a remote IPTube RS530 DL 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 2.048 million bits per second.

Flexible Synchronous Serial Data Extension Over IP

The IPTube RS530 DL, whose synchronous serial interface is configurable as DCE or a DTE, facilitates the transport of bulk data across a combination of IP and WAN infrastructures. The IPTube RS530 DL's flexibility supports internetworking across varied LAN/WAN/MAN/Satellite networks. The size and frequency of the IP packets can be set with data bit rates from 2.4 Kilobits per second to 2.048 million bits per second. Latency minimization is accomplished with multidimensional adaptive clock configurations.Typical Applications 

• Secure LAN to LAN interconnect
• Secure Video TeleConferencing
• Field Command Centers
• Secure Wireless Bridge connections
• SIPRNet or NIPRNet access
WAN Data Over IP

The IPTube RS530 DL provides a transparent bandwidth regulated IP Tunnel for interconnecting remote Networks. With the IPTube RS530 DL WAN security provisioning, such as firewalling, is maintained. WAN Protocols, such as PPP and Frame Relay, that utilize HDLC framing are encapsulated with HDLC Over IP. Broadband Service providers are able to transport Enterprise Wide Area Network connections with inband management of the Committed Information Rates. The IPTube RS530 DL IP Tunnel can also be utilized as a secondary path for fault tolerant mission critical applications.


Tube RS530 DL Standard Features


Clocking, Latency and Bandwidth

The IPTube RS530 DL units are used to interconnect Synchronous Serial Data connections across Ethernet. Since Ethernet 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.

The Engage IPTube RS530 DL-DCE provides the clocking to their attached Data Terminal Equipment - DTEs. 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 IPTube RS530 DL-DCE has a sophisticated adaptive clocking circuitry that supports the smooth synchronous clocking required by Video Codecs and configurations that minimize latency and overhead.


Assured Delivery Protocol

In order to assure that circuits are extended over connections with fault tolerance the IPTube RS530 DL has as a standard capability an Assured Delivery Protocol that supports high performance full duplex real time data. The protocol has packet out of sequence detection and re sequencing, duplicate skipping, and real time lost packet retransmission with configured delay.


Service Quality Packet Prioritizing

The IPTube RS530 DL 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 theIPTube RS530DL is ensured high priority.


User Interface

Management of the IPTube RS530 DL 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.


Dual LAN Interfaces

All IPTube RS530 DL 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
• Protector Option for Redundant Packet Path connections with Constant or Switch Over  Criteria


VPN Network Management
The IPTube RS530 DL's second 10/100BaseT Ethernet interface provides a management port when interconnecting the IPTube RS530 DLthrough a Virtual Private Network. Each LAN interface of the IPTube RS530 DL features independent IP network configurations.


IPTube RS530 DL Optional Features

 Protector Option
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.
