VCL-E1oP (2E1 Port FE Version)
TDM over IP / TDM over Packet / TDM over MPLS

Product Overview

AceCom's 'VCL-E1oP' E1 over Packet (2 E1 Port FE Version) TDM over IP equipment supports transmission of up to 2 x E1 links over IP / Ethernet, MEF or MPLS pseudowire networks. Circuit emulation over IP, also supports CESoPSN and SAToP,

The 'VCL-E1oP E1 over Packet (2 E1 Port FE Version) TDM over IP equipment, equipped with a powerful ARM-Cortex Processor which provides a highly reliable clock recovery mechanism for low jitter and wander control, even under variable network conditions.

2 x E1 Port E1oP (E1 over Packet) equipment is available with various Electrical (10/100BaseT) and Optical (100BaseFX) Ethernet port  options which allow the users to implement 1+1 add-drop (Drop-Insert), Ethernet link redundancy (using Port Trunking / Port Bonding) and 802.1p based QoS mechanisms  for network optimization.

The 'VCL-E1oP' E1 over Packet (2 E1 Port FE Version) TDM over IP equipment also optimizes on the network usage, such that the bandwidth used by the E1oP equipment on the packet network is limited to the corresponding to the number of E1 ports and the time-slots that are being transported over the Ethernet / packet network.


Purpose of TDM over Packet technology


Telecom companies and enterprise users can save significant network and equipment cost and generate additional revenue by offering different types of services over a single packet-switched infrastructure by the use of E1oP equipment. The E1oP equipment is also suitable for connecting to Ethernet / packet wireless equipment to achieve fast deployment of E1 services over wireless Ethernet networks. One particular application is to build E1 links with low cost Wireless LAN bridges, replacing expensive TDM / E1 microwave radios.


The 2 x E1 over Ethernet (VCL-E1oP) multiplexer may be used to provide legacy TDM services over Ethernet optical fiber, or wireless Ethernet/IP networks.


How the TDM over Packet (2 E1 Port FE Version) equipment works


The E1 data streams received on the E1 interfaces are converted by the E1oP engine of the E1oP equipment to Ethernet data packets (of a fixed size) and transported over the Ethernet network with UDP / IP, MEF or MPLS headers. At the receiving end the E1oP reconstructs the original data streams by removing the IP, MEF or MPLS headers and converts the Ethernet data packets back to E1 frames using highly reliable and accurate clock recovery mechanism. The 'VCL-E1oP' (2 E1 Port FE Version) offers the user a choice of standard, E1 to packet and packet to E1 conversion mechanisms that include SAToP and CESoPSN technologies.
