The Loop AM3440-A/B/C series are Access DCS-MUXs that combine various digital access interfaces into E1 or T1 lines for convenient transport and switching. The Loop-AM3440 Access DCS-MUX provides access for a variety of TDM, IP, and voice interfaces detailed on the data sheet. These interfaces are compatible with other Loop products. Using these products, a DTE interface can be extended over copper
wire pairs or any E1/T1 transport facility. Each Quad E1/T1 plug-in card can have as many as DS0 124/96 time slots from G.SHDSL, RS232, X.21, V.35, V.36 and EIA530 / RS449 interfaces, which can be multiplexed to fill 4 E1/T1 lines. The AM3440 also supports fiber
optical plug-in cards, which can be used to aggregate up to 4 E1 channels onto a single fiber optical interface to connect with other AM3440 devices or with the O9310-E1.
Each of the 3 models of AM3440 – A, B, and C – has a number of plug-in slots in single slot size and mini size. Card size to slot compatibility is detailed on the data sheet.
This unit is a full cross-connect and can act as a mini
DACS: one or more of the WAN ports can be used as a
Drop & Insert function with fractional E1/T1 lines, which can be muxed into a full E1 / T1 line.
Redundancy is available in dual CPU controller and power supply options, making it an excellent fit for critical applications. The chassis does not need fan cooling, and thus does not have a fan, though an external fan tray is available.
The Loop AM3440 supports local control and diagnostics by using an external 2-line by 40-character LCD display and keypads, or by using a VT-100 terminal connected to the console port. The AM3440 also supports Ethernet, Telnet, and SNMP, so that it can be controlled and diagnosed from remote locations. An in-band management channel with GUI is available. In addition to the LCD display, there is LED indication for all plug-in cards.
