Ethernet/IP-Over-OC-3/STM-1 Gateway

Rollover or Touch for Expanded View. Scroll to Zoom.


TC3844-5 Ethernet-over-OC-3/STM-1 Gateway simplifies and lowers the cost of Gigabit Ethernet over SONET/SDH connectivity by extending Ethernet backhaul applications to remote locations.

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.

  • Supports STS-3/STM-1 Optical and STS-3/STM-1e Coaxial
  • Standard GFP Encapsulation per ITU-T G.7041
  • IEEE 801.p QoS with four queues
  • Ethernet and STS-3/STM-1 Statistics Monitoring
  • VLAN Tagging and Priority Labeling
  • Manage Via Web, SNMP, Serial Console, Telnet
  • Temperature & Power Consumption Monitoring
