Ethernet has emerged as the technology of choice for most networking requirements and is rapidly replacing competing technologies such as TDM (SONET/SDH), Frame Relay and ATM in both Metro Area Networks (MANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs).
Much of Ethernet’s success can be attributed to its simplicity and interoperability (plug-and-play & universal connectivity). These benefits, combined with significant cost efficiencies (low replacement costs & future-proof scalability), give network professionals compelling reasons to upgrade their existing network.
TC Comm’s Ethernet/IP platform solution is the JumboSwitch. It integrates Ethernet/IP, VoIP and TDM over IP/Ethernet over a redundant Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic backbone and features 11 different hot-swappable and self-configuring interface card options. Interfaces currently include 10/100/1000M Ethernet, VoIP, Analog, Audio, Intercom, Dry Contact, T1/E1, RS232, RS422/485, G.703/64K, C37.94 and Ethernet-over-PDH (T1/E1 & T3/E3).
