VCL-MegaConnectTM 32 Port
Plus - T1 Monitoring Groomer for
Hi-Z Non-Intrusive Hi-Impedance
Monitoring Solution - 2U high
Networks Inc. offers the VCL-MegaConnectTM 32 Port Plus - T1 Monitoring
Groomer is suitable for non-intrusive monitoring of upto 16, "live"
T1 traffic links, bi-directionally (i.e. in both transmit and
receive directions through its 32 T1 receivers) through a high
impedance (Hi-Z) path. Additionally, the equipment also provides 4
output T1 ports that shall connect the aggregated time-slots which
have been non-intrusively "monitored" from the 16, "live" T1 traffic
links to the user's protocol analyzers, test probes, etc.
The VCL-MegaConnectTM 32 Port Plus - T1 Monitoring
Groomer, occupies only a 2U high rack-space, and is a compact
19-inch stand-alone unit. The unit is powered by and operates on a
-48V DC power supply. An AC mains option is also available with an
external AC-DC converter.
he equipment is provided with
BOTH, RS232 Serial Interface for COM Port connection and as well as
a TCP/IP LAN Interface (10/100BaseT) for providing equipment access through Telnet
over a TCP/IP link. The user may select and use either of these
ports for executing HyperTerminal text commands for configuration
etc. The access for configuration and system management is provided
through CLI (Command Line Interface) text commands which may be
executed either from a serial (COM) Port of a PC or through the
10/100BaseT LAN Interface. The 10/100BaseT LAN Interface
allows the equipment to be connected on a TCP/IP network for remote
access for configuration and monitoring over LAN and TCP/IP link. The
system is also supplied with an easy to use (Windows XP, Windows 7)
Graphical User Interface that provides the user a complete control
to prepare multiple configuration "maps" and store them, as easy to
read data files. Dry contact relay alarm output is also available at
rear of the system to connect the system to an external audio/visual
alarm output through a dry relay contact.
The T1 Groomer is capable of non-intrusively
monitoring upto 16 "live" T1 links and grooming the selected 64 Kbps
time-slots to the 4 additional output T1 Ports provided in the
equipment. The 32, T1 receivers of the Groomer shall connect to the
16, T1 "live traffic" links which are to be monitored,
non-Intrusively. 4 additional (Normal-Z) output T1 Ports are also
provided by the equipment which shall route the aggregated data of
the "monitored" time-slots to the user’s test equipment, such as
protocol analyzers, test probes, billing servers etc.
The T1 Groomer (T1 Monitoring DACS) is capable of
monitoring a -20dBsx (0.3Volt Pulse) T1 signal through a Hi-Z path,
without in any way affecting or disturbing the "live" T1 traffic
that is required to be monitored.
The equipment offers the user with complete
flexibility to choose and select time-slots from each of the 16 T1
links that are being monitored, without limitation or restrictions,
through the internal TSI non-blocking switch (data received by the
equipment's 32 T1 receivers) and then aggregate the selected
time-slots to the 4 output T1 ports that shall connect to the test
offered and available for Hi-Z Non-Intrusive Monitoring applications
- 8 T1 Links (32 T1 Ports plus 4 T1 ports for
connecting to monitoring equipment) T1 Monitoring Groomer
- Monitoring of “Live Traffic” on T1 links which are to be monitored, non-intrusively (Hi-Z) in
both transmit and receive directions.
- Specifying the priority sequence
for clock selection
- Enabling or disabling T1 and E1
channels (masking) of the T1 and E1 channels that are not is use.
- Creating a cross-connect between
T1s (and E1) at DS-O level (single time-slot level) using the
Windows based, easy to use GUI.
- Telnet for remote
