Convert E1 to Ethernet
|E1 Voice and Data over IP|
The IP•Tube DLE1 encapsulates full and fractional E1 circuits into IP packets. E1 Over IP connections provide for the interconnection of PBXs and Telecom Switches via LANs, WANs, MANs, Satellite and Wireless Ethernet.
The IP•Tube DLE1 ships with two E1 interfaces with either 1 or 2 active and two 10/100 BaseT Ethernet Interfaces. The E1 interfaces have configurations that for provide independent protocol, compression, packet sizing, buffering, clocking, framing, coding and channel settings. The inactive E1 Port can be activated via a software-based license key for a pay as you grow option.
|IP•Tube DLE1 Standard Features|
|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 DLE1 employs Engage’s robust Assured Delivery Protocol with the following benefits:
• Packet out of sequence detection and re-sequencing
Dual LAN Interfaces
• Management interface on LAN port 2 when LAN port 1 is connected to a VPN tunnel
Full E1 Connection Across Two ADSL Lines
Virtual Private Network Support
Interconnecting the IP•Tube DLE1 through a Virtual Private Network with sufficient real time committed information rate ensures that the required quality of service is provisioned. The second Ethernet interface provides a management port. Each LAN interface features independent IP network configurations.
|IP•Tube DLE1 Options|
DS0 Timeslot Multiplexor OPTION -MUX
|E1 Switch OPTION -SWT |
The E1 switch option enables the E1 Port 1 interface to be manually switched between a E1 circuit connected to E1 Port 2 or to E1 Over IP packets connected with the remote IP•Tube.
• Remote Control of E1 Connection to Telco or E1overIP
E1 Link Protector OPTION -LPT
Lossless Data Compression OPTION -C
The IP•Tube DLE1-C continuously detects idle and redundant data within each E1 Voice circuit resulting in as much as a 56 to 1 bandwidth savings. TDM over IP WAN bandwidth is not consumed by silent or redundant circuits. Note: Compression only supported with IP•Tube DLE1-C models.
Alternator Load Balancing OPTION -ALT
Rate Limiter OPTION -RLM
The IP•Tube DLE1-RLM Rate Limiter option limits the WAN bandwidth utilized by the LAN1 to LAN2 bridge. Rate Limiting the traffic enables the reservation of the WAN bandwidth for time the sensitive E1 Over IP real time connections. Great for Wireless WAN E1 applications. Rate Governing is only applied in the direction to the WAN to minimize latency. The data rate governor utilizes Time Division Multiplexing based clocking to provide for Nx64, NxE1 and NxFT3 bandwidth regulation that is configured from 64 kilobits up to 45Mbits.
Protector OPTION -PRO
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.

|PRI Over IP|
|E1 Private Line Services Over IP|
|Multi-Site Enterprises, Cellular Service Providers, Education Districts, Universities, National, State and Local Government, and Municipalities incur significant recurring monthly costs for rigid-bandwidth leased lines used only for the interconnection of PBXs and Telecom switches.|
The IP•Tube DLE1 provides organizations with the ability to interconnect their existing phone systems over flexible bandwidth lines that are used to carry data, voice, and video. The Voice Only Leased Line Toll charges assessed by long distance and local carriers are eliminated or dramatically reduced by transporting voice traffic across LANs and WANs.
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 result in very significant cost savings especially for Multinational Corporations. The IP•Tube DLE1-C with loss less 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 samples.
|Cellular Base Station Backhaul|
|IP•Tube DLE1s are used to provide transparent interconnection of the Base Stations, Base Station Controllers and Mobile Switching Centers over IP Ethernet packet-switched networks.|
Cellular phone service providers are able to save substantially by converting to a packet switch network from circuit based TDM leased lines. The Loss Less Data compression option provides a 40 to 1 compression, which minimizes the bandwidth required to interconnect, is especially well suited to Cellular communication links.
Engage's first deployment of the IPTube, in the Spring of 2000, was for an international interconnection of a Cellular Base Station to a Base Station Controller.
Broadband Service Providers
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:
Metropolitan Area Networks
CLEC PBX Back Haul
|International Toll Bypass|
The IP•Tube DLE1’s most dramatic cost savings is when it is used for the international interconnections of TDM based telecommunication equipment. The IP•Tube T1s are interoperable with the European TDM standard E1.
