IP•Tube CEP GE1
E1 Circuit Extension over IP
E1 Voice & Data Over IP
The IP•Tube CEP GE1 encapsulates full and fractional E1 and TDM circuits, along with their framing and signaling bits, into IP packets. The IP•Tube CEP GE1's E1 Over IP, E1 Over Ethernet connection provides for the transparent interconnection of PBXs, E1 Channel Banks, Telecom Switches and E1 based communication systems via LANs, WANs, MANs, Satellite and Wireless Ethernet.
Enable One to Four E1 interfaces for E1 over IP Voice and Data
IP•Tube CEP GE1Standard Features
The IP•Tube CEP GE1's transparent operation maintains the proprietary signaling required to support PBX features such as call conferencing, call forwarding, caller ID and SS7. Legacy phone equipment investment is preserved. Transparent support for Modem, Fax, or Data circuits. Voice quality is not compromised.
|Assured Delivery Protocol|
In order to assure high quality communications over links with intermittent or noisy performance, such as Wireless or Broadband over Power Line, the IP•Tube CEP GE1 employs Engage’s robust Assured Delivery Protocol with the following benefits:
• Packet out of sequence detection and re-sequencing
Dual LAN Interfaces
Full E1 Connection Across Two ADSL Lines

Service Quality Packet Prioritizing
|VPN Network Management|
Interconnecting the IP•Tube CEP GE1 through a Virtual Private Network with a sufficient real time committed information rate ensures that the required quality of service is provisioned. The IP•Tube CEP GE1's second Ethernet interface provides a management port when the first Ethernet interface is connected to a VPN. Each Ethernet LAN interface features independent IP network configurations.
IP•Tube CEP GE1 Options
Lossless Data Compression Option
The IP•Tube CEP GE1C detects idle/redundant data within each DS0 resulting in as much as 40 to 1 bandwidth savings. E1 over IP bandwidth is not consumed by silent or redundant circuits. Management of the IP•Tube CEP GE1 is accomplished with a Command Line Interface that is accessed through a Console or Telnet connection. Common templates provide for cut and Paste configuration.
Alternator Load Balancing Option
The typical way to extend T1/E1 circuits across packet networks is for each T1/E1 to be encapsulated into individual IP packet streams. The SuperTube Sized IP•Tube reduces the encapsulation overhead bandwidth and the packet frequency by 75%. The reduction of packet frequency enables network processors that are pressed with the low latency packet processing.
Cellular Backhaul has latency requirements that can be as stringent as four milliseconds. In order to rate adapt the clock and to take into account the jitter of the Ethernet buffering of the circuit extended packets is required. The frequency of the packets may need to be as low as 250 micro seconds to meet the latency and buffering requirements.
The packet processing for 4 bidirectional T1/E1 circuits at 250 microseconds packet interval full duplex is 32,000 packets per second. 32,000 packets per second full duplex is not something that 802.xx and WiMax wireless radios are able to reliably process. The SuperTube option cuts the packet processing requirement to 8,0000 packets per second which can be handled with ease by commercial grade 802.xx and WMax radios.
Protector OPTION -EnPRO
The Enhanced version has configuration parameters that enable a secondary packet path with high relative delay to primary path be synchronized. The packet sequence delay synchronization ensures concurrent redundancy with a high degree of error tolerance. Error free operation is accomplished when a primary or secondary Packet is not received and a redundant duplicate packet is available. The IP•Tube also supports the transmission of multiple duplicate packets to support Mission Critical Circuit extension with redundancy that is only limited by the bandwidth provisioned.
Pay-As-You-Grow Field Upgrades
|Rack Mount Kit|
The IP•Tube family is ready for your most demanding central office or data center environments. With the Rack Mount Kit, IP•Tube products are easily installed in 19" and 23" racks. Easy access to both front and rear sides facilitates technician maintenance procedures.
g703 to Ethernet Converter
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 Switches.
Wide Area Networks, that have sufficient bandwidth and Quality of Service provisioning, facilitate a very significant cost savings especially for Multinational Corporations. The IP•Tube CEP GE1C, a model with lossless data compression, detects idle and redundant data within each voice circuit resulting in a 56 to 1 bandwidth savings. WAN bandwidth is not consumed by silence or redundant circuits.
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
Metropolitan Area Networks
|CLEC PBX Back Haul|
The IP•Tube CEP GE1 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.
International Toll Bypass
The IP•Tube CEP GE1’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.
