MIRICI-E3T3 Miniature Fast Ethernet to T3/E3 Remote Bridge
Talk about conserving Rack space. Take a look at this product.
MIRICI-E3T3/GE and MIRICI-E3T3/FE forward LAN Fast Ethernet packets to TDM-based WAN at full duplex wire-speed, fully utilizing the expensive E3/T3 rate TDM circuit bandwidth. Management capabilities for configuration, status, and diagnostics via the I2C interface. Housed in a Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) package, MiRIC-E3 and MiRIC-T3 comply with the Multi-Source Agreement (MSA). The units handle 64 to 2016-byte frames, including VLAN-tagged frames. LAN traffic is transported transparently, keeping the user LAN settings intact. The transmit timing source is userselectable (Receive or Internal clock) LAN link fault is visually indicated by the LINK LED (green) turning off. E3 or T3 loss of signal is propagated by sending an electrical LOS signal to the LAN port, and indicated visually by the LOS LED (red) turning on. There is also an option to block the LAN link. Flow control mechanism is activated when LAN traffic exceeds the WAN link ( T3, E3 ) capacity; pause packets are transmitted towards the LAN port. MiRIC-E3 and MiRIC-T3 operate opposite another MiRIC-E3 or MiRICT3, or alternatively opposite RADís RICi-E3, RICi-T3 or Egate (central Ethernet gateway) devices. The MiRIC-T3 and MiRIC-E3 are autonomous plug-and-play modules. MSA product identification codes are supported. A special release mechanism allows the device to be easily extracted from the socket.
Some of the key features of the MIRICI-E3T3/GE and MIRICI-E3T3/FE are:
Remote bridges connecting Fast Ethernet LANs over framed/unframed E3 or T3 links
Basic management for configuration, status and diagnostics.
Hot-insertion SFP footprint, MSA-compliant
Full duplex wire-speed packet forwarding
Selectable clock source
Visual fault indication:
- Loss of T3 or E3 signal
- Loss of Ethernet link
Fault propagation to LAN link
Support flow control
Product identification support
Easy release mechanism
