VCL-E1oP (8E1 Port GE Version)
TDM over IP / TDM over Packet / TDM over MPLS

Product Overview

AceCom's 'VCL-E1oP' E1 over Packet (8 E1 Port GE Version) TDM over IP equipment supports transmission of
up to 8 x E1 links over IP / Ethernet, MEF or MPLS, TDM pseudowire networks.

The 'VCL-E1oP' E1 over Packet (8 E1 Port GE Version) TDM over IP equipment, equipped with a powerful PowerPC 400 MHz Processor which provides a highly reliable clock recovery mechanism for low jitter and wander control, even under variable network conditions.

8 E1 Port E1oP (E1 over Packet) TDM over IP equipment provides 2 x GigE electrical ports along with 2 x Gigabit optical ports which allow the Users to implement 1+1 add-drop (Drop-Insert), Ethernet link redundancy (Spanning Tree Protocol) and QoS by implementing Differentiated Services (Diffserv) and packet priority classification protocols for network optimization.

The 'VCL-E1oP' E1 over Packet (8 E1 Port GE Version) 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 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 8 x E1 over Ethernet (VCL-E1oP) multiplexer may be used to provide legacy TDM services over Gigabit Ethernet optical fiber, or wireless Ethernet/IP networks.


How the TDM over IP (8 E1 Port GE 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' (8 E1 port GE Version) offers the user a choice of standard, E1 to packet and packet to E1 conversion mechanisms that include SAToP and CESoPSN technologies.
