MEGAMUX-16EN device is an Ethernet inverse multiplexer with 16 x E1 (G.703 2048kbit/s) interfaces. It allows connection of Ethernet network using one to sixteen E1 channels aggregating their band. Joining of E1 streams into a common transmission channel is based on inverse multiplexation with in-built mechanisms adapting differences in times of transferring packages in separate lines. By using 16 E1 channels, it is possible to obtain the maximum throughput of 32.768 Mbit/s for Ethernet packages. The malfunction of a single E1 channel, regardless of a direction, causes its automatic switch off and no loss of packages. In case the line is back in operation, such a condition is automatically detected by the device and the transmission in the channel is restored.
• Point-to-point working mode: Connection of two GigabitEthernet LANs over up to sixteen E1 lines (32,768 Mbit/s) • Point-to-multipoint working mode: As concentrator, collect traffic from different LANs connected by E1 lines • Built-in 6-port Gigabit Ethernet switch (4 electrical ports and 2 SFP ports) IEEE 802.1q, 802.1QinQ, 802.1p and DSCP/ToS QoS support • Automatic E1 channel failure detection • Management: SNMP, WWW, TELNET • Optional power supply redundancy
