Over Ethernet Encryptor
AES Encrypted T1 Voice and Data over IP
The Black•Tube T1 encapsulates full and fractional T1 circuits, along with their framing and signaling bits, into AES encrypted IP packets. Encryption of the packetized T1 protects vital information from eavesdropping, tampering and regulatory compliance violations.
|Black•Tube T1 Standard Features|
Assured Delivery Protocol
Interconnecting the Black•Tube T1 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.
|Black•Tube T1 Options|
DS0 Time Slot Multiplexer OPTION -MUX
|T1 Switch OPTION -SWT |
The T1 switch option enables the T1 Port 1 interface to be manually switched between a T1 circuit connected to T1 Port 2 or to T1 Over IP packets connected with the remote Black•Tube T1.
• Remote Control of T1 Connection to Telco or T1overIP
|T1 Link Protector OPTION -LPT |
The T1 Link Protector provides an automatic back up for T1 circuits with T1 Over IP connecting via Wireless Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, IP Satellite Services, xDSL,....
• Automatic Protection Switch for T1 Circuit
Lossless Data Compression OPTION -C
The Black•Tube T1-C continuously detects idle and redundant data within each T1 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.
Alternator Load Balancing OPTION -ALT
Rate Limiter OPTION -RLM
Protector OPTION -PRO
The protector option utilizes the second LAN interface as a redundant path for the interconnection of the IP encapsulated T1 Circuit. The extension of the T1 circuit has a fault tolerant link that is configured to always on, or with switch over criteria.
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 Black•Tube T1 also supports the transmission of multiple duplicate packets to support Mission Critical Circuit extension with redundancy that is only limited by the bandwidth provisioned.

T1 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 BlackTube T1 provides organizations with the ability to securely 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 T1 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 BlackTube T1-C 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 samples.
Connecting phone systems across a wireless Ethernet connection has a return on investment that is measured in weeks. Eliminating the wired connection for the T1 based communication equipment is made possible with the IP Tube’s T1 Over Ethernet capability.
UnEncrypted interconnection of PBX connections across Wireless is able to be eavesdropped with Shareware Packet Capture programs. The BlackTube T1 ensures that private branch connections across wireless networks remain private.
Cellular Base Station Backhaul
BlackTube T1's 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 IP Tube, 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 T1 leased line and private line services, such as:
Cable operators connect traditional T1 leased line and private line services over their hybrid fiber coax (HFC) cable networks.
Metropolitan Area Networks
Metropolitan carriers with IP or Ethernet access networks deliver traditional leased line and private line services.
Utilities generate new revenue by offering traditional T1 leased line and private line services over their fiber or power line networks.
Telcos reduce costs by delivering profitable leased and private line services over their flexible Ethernet infrastructures.
CLEC PBX Back Haul
The BlackTube T1-Ecan provides CLEC's with a way to back haul T1 DSO's from a customer's phone systems over their Internet connection. The back hauled DSOs are connected to the CLEC's phone switch for connection to the Public Switched Telephone Networks. Local Exchange Carriers are able to offer an economical alternative to the local Phone Company.
International Toll Bypass
The BlackTube T1's most dramatic cost savings is when it is used for the international interconnections of TDM based telecommunication equipment. The BlackTube T1's are interoperable with the European TDM standard E1.
