Strategies and Considerations: Moving from Analog Radio to IP Connectivity

Over recent years the providers of these lines have decided to remove their leased line service which has led to a sharp reduction in reliability and high down times. Additionally, the providers are either simply removing the service, or dramatically increasing the cost of leased lines, both of which leaves users considering what to do to replace this service.

Navigating Leased Line Network Modernization

Many carriers have been phasing out various leased services for years, many utilities are challenged with replacement of existing devices due to cost, complexity, timing and other various reasons. This paper explores common challenges and practical solutions to leased line retirement.

Digital Radio Linking Using T1/E1

Discusses the use of linking digital radio sites via T1/E1 links, rather than the more common IP based links, including the connection of various digital repeater systems.

Advantages of Ethernet vs. SONET/SDH

With data requirements inundating network traffic, legacy voice-centric SONET/SDH platforms no longer offer viable or cost-effective backbone solutions. Future network deployments will be dominated by Ethernet and simplified by the inevitable blurring of the boundaries between LANs, MANs, WANs and Industrial networks.

TDM over IP/Ethernet Implementation in JumboSwitch

TDM over IP/Ethernt is a TDM PW technology that makes it possible to provision E3, T3, STS-1 and serial data services across IP, MPLS or layer 2 Ethernet Networks. The services provided in a manner transparent to all protocols and signaling. TDM over IP/Ethernet enables service providers to next-generation networks while continuing to provide all their revenue-generating legacy services, and without fork-lift upgrades of end-user equipment.

QoS Prioritization

An Industrial Ethernet network consists of multiple types of hosts (such as PC, Server, and SCADA/DCS Controllers) interconnected together by Ethernet switches to communicate with each other. By default, all devices in the network have an equal opportunity to transmit their data to their destinations.

IP Switches Deterministic & Real-Time Responsive

Ethernet based Local Area Networks (LANs) have become the most prominent technology that promises to revolutionize automation communications. The advancements in Ethernet technology, from collision-prone, shared 10Mbps LAN, to collision-free, duplex 100Mbps switched LAN, and onward to 1000Mbps LAN, Ethernet technology is close to taking over the world of communications.
