IP•Tube Uno E1
E1 Voice, Video and Data Over IP
The IP•Tube UNO E1 ships with one E1 interface and one 10/100 BaseT Ethernet Interface. Optional integrated 4 port QOS/VLAN/Rate Limiting Layer-2 Ethernet switch is available.
An Ethernet Switch Option provides transparent LAN bridging, user data bandwidth and access control through rate limiting and port-based VLAN filtering and tagging.
IP•Tube UNO E1 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 UNO E1 employs Engage’s robust Assured Delivery Protocol with the following benefits:
• Packet out of sequence detection and re-sequencing
• Duplicate skipping
• Lost packet retransmission with configured delay.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol - DHCP
The IP•Tube UNO E1 can be configured to obtain its Internet Protocol network parameters: IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS; from a local DHCP server.
Domain Name Addressing
IP•Tube UNO E1 can be configured to use a Domain Name for the remote IP•Tube in place of a fixed IP address. Supports mobile multi service provider installations with ease.
IP•Tubes can be configured to register their IP address with Dynamic Domain Name Servers for discovery by the IP•Tube at the other end of the E1 circuit. DDNS support combined with DHCP make installations Name-based which is very easy to setup and maintain when compared to Static IP addressing.
Secure Socket Shell - SSH
Engage’s Secure Socket Shell, which is based upon industry proven Open SSH and FIPS 140 approved Open SSL version 2.0, provides secure encrypted communications between SSH clients such as OpenSSH, SecureCRT, and PuTTY and the IP•Tube’s Command Line Interface.
The IP•Tube UNO E1 is able to be fully managed with SNMP via standard and private MIBs. Large scale deployments of IPTubes with centralized management have made SNMP support a priority. SNMP Traps for error events enable proactive service fault isolation.
IP•Tube UNO E1 OPTIONS
Virtual Private Network Support
Protector OPTION -PRO
Alternator Load Balancing OPTION -ALT
Full E1 Connection Across Two ADSL Lines
DS0 Timeslot Multiplexor OPTION -MUX
Lossless Data Compression OPTION- C
The IP•Tube UNO E1-C continuously detects idle and redundant data within each E1 Voice circuit resulting in as much as a 40 to 1 bandwidth savings.
TDM over IP WAN bandwidth is not consumed by silent or redundant circuits.
Pay-As-You-Grow Field Upgrades
The IP•Tube UNO E1s are designed for Pay-As-You-Go growth. Field Upgrade benefits are extended to our Industry-Best Loss less Data Compression. Loss less Data Compression can be upgraded with a simple software-based license key installation. If you determine that your IP•Tube UNO E1 is best deployed with Lossless Data Compression, your still in business with a field upgrade!
|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.
E1 Over IP Ethernet Benefits
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 UNO E1 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 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.
E1 Over Wireless Ethernet
Interconnection of E1 based data communication systems over wireless as a primary or back up connection is a major application of the IPTube.
For over eight years the IPTube has proven itself around the world as an effective method for using Commercial Off the Shelf Wireless Ethernet Bridges to interconnect E1 circuits.
The IPTube’s Assured Delivery Protocol has the sophistication required for solid performance across a wide range of wireless connections.
The use of parallel Wireless Ethernet links minimizes the latency and Radio’s packet processing requirement.
Cellular Base Station Backhaul
IP•Tube UNO E1s provide transparent interconnection of Base Stations, Base Station Controllers and Mobile Switching Centers over IP Ethernet packet-switched networks.
Cellular service providers save substantially by converting to a packet switch network. The Lossless Data compression option, which is especially well suited to Cellular communication links, minimizes the bandwidth required to interconnect.
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 56 to 1 compression, which minimizes the bandwidth required to interconnect, is especially well suited to Cellular communication links.
Engage's first deployment of the IPTubeE1, in the Spring of 2000, was for an international interconnection of a Cellular Base Station to a Base Station Controller.
Note: The Ethernet Switch Option has the sophistication to support Ethernet Native Base Station applications with QOS and rate limiting.
Broadband Service ProvidersCompanies, that are able to provide IP Ethernet access networks generate new revenue by offering traditional E1 leased line and private line services, such as:
Cable operators connect traditional E1 leased line and private line services over their hybrid fiber coax (HFC) cable networks. HFC Cable network latency typically requires echo cancellation.
Metropolitan Area Networks
Metropolitan carriers with IP or Ethernet access networks deliver traditional leased line and private line services.
