SBE wanPTMC-C24T1E1 Delivers Industry Highest Density T1/E1 PTMC

8/12/2004 - SBE Inc., (NASDAQ: SBEI), a leading supplier of high-performance OEM communications solutions, introduced wanPTMC-C24T1E1, a fully channelized 24-port T1/E1 PCI Telecom Mezzanine Module (PTMC) and Rear Transition Module (RTM) board set.

Delivering a robust, modular solution on a single slot, the wanPTMC-C24TE1 is built for use with PTMC "Configuration 2" carrier platforms. Designed for high-density applications, such as Voice over IP (VoIP) gateways, computer telephony softswitches, TDM switches/PBX, and voice conferencing systems, the wanPTMC-C24TE1 bundles a PICMG 2.15 compliant PTMC module with a configurable rear transition module.

The PTMC module is based on the architecture of SBE’s popular DS3 module, the wanPTMC-256T3. Providing full local CT Bus access to all 672 timeslots of the T3 stream, the PTMC module combines a 256-channel HDLC controller with a timeslot interchanger/assigner to create an ideal platform for terminating data traffic, such as TDM signaling and switching voice calls in a VoIP application. The RTM component consists of DSX connectivity 12 or 24 T1/E1/J1 streams via two industry standard RJ48H connectors. Both the PTMC card and the RTM are fully configurable from the host computer.

"Demand for modular solutions with greater density yet offering simple configuration and scalability options continues to rapidly build as pressures for quicker time-to-market, lower costs, and more robust feature sets keep on climbing,” commented Steve Nester, vice president of business development at SBE. “SBE has been utilizing a flexible, scalable design architecture for our board-level solutions for years, and the wanPTMC-C24TE1 is no exception. The wanPTMC-C24TE1 is virtually a high-density, networking power pack, especially when bundled with our HW400c/M, a 6U CompactPCI core processor platform. Delivering modularity and easy access to multiple data or voice channels from T1/E1/J1 ports, makes this sophisticated board set a solution of choice for carrier class programmable switches, media gateways and soft PBX solutions," continued Nester.

The wanPTMC-C24TE1 is designed to operate on SBE’s HW400c/M or any other PICMG 2.3 compliant carrier board. An optional 12-port version, the wanPTMC-C12TE1, is also available. Both the 12-port and 24-port versions offer full software compatibility with SBE’s complete line of DS3 board-level products. Full Linux driver support is provided with this solution set.
