The JumboSwitch® series is a TDM over IP/Ethernet based solution designed to emulate time-division multiplexing over packet switched networks (PSN). TDM over IP/Ethernet is a TDM pseudowire (PW) technology making it possible to provision E1, T1, E3, T3, STS-1 and serial data services across PSN's such as IP, MPLS or layer 2 Ethernet Networks.

  • Pass full 300Hz-3kHz bandwidth without compression or added noise or distortion
  • 1, 2 or 4 ports of 4W E&M or 2-wire audio over IP
  • 1 and 2 ch. units field expandable to 2 or 4 channels
  • No compression of the audio ensures exceptional audio clarity and 100% compatibility with signaling tones
  • Extremely Low Latency
  • Temperature and power consumption monitoring
  • Extreme temp (-40°C to +80ºC) optional
  • Meets or exceeds IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613 and NEMA TS-2 standards
  • Member of JumboSwitch Product Family

"Over the past thirty-five years I have used similar boxes from other vendors for similar applications. But I have never seen one that would produce such a linear, uniform audio transmission from one end to the other - especially across an IP link.”
- Martin T. Vinson, N.C.T., A.S.C.E.T.


TC3846-6 is effective for most Analog/Radio over IP Gateway applications, such as linking Repeater and voting receiver sites to central voter/dispatch sites, improving voice quality and increasing system reliability in harsh environments. Applications also include linking or extending 4W E&M and 2W 600 ohm analog circuits, audio and intercom devices, Modems (e.g. Frequency Shift Keying [FSK] and FFSK modems), teleprotection relay controllers and dry contacts over Layer 2/3 IP networks.
