Lentronics
T1 Multiplexer
Multiplexing Solutions for Critical Communications

The Lentronics™ JungleMUX T1 Multiplexer (T1MX) is a powerful, flexible and reliable solution for converged service networks. The T1MX extends critical channel access into harsh utility environments over microwave radio, leased line and dedicated fiber optic or copper cable networks.

Key Benefits
  • Secure and dependable transport of critical utility information over public or private communication infrastructures
  • Supports standalone T1 networks, T1 spurs and T1 access applications for higher order systems
  • Upgradable to a JungleMUX SONET Multiplexer to satisfy increasing bandwidth requirements
  • Network managed providing complete system monitoring and diagnostics for each individual DS0 channel

Network Applications

The T1MX Multiplexer can be deployed in a variety of applications, from T1 circuit extensions through leased lines, T1 microwave radio links and spurs, as well as in standalone T1 networks connecting multiple facilities or multiple sites within a single large facility.

Utility Hardened
  • Meets IEEE 1613 specification for communications networking devices in electric power substations
  • Reliable operation in extreme temperatures from -4°F to +140°F (-20°C to +60°C)
  • Meets Earthquake Risk Zone 4 shock and vibration specification

Scalable Design
  • T1 multiplexer with integrated Compact Digital Access X-Connect (CDAX)
  • Supports a wide range of JungleMUX SONET compatible DS0 interface units including voice, data, teleprotection and Ethernet applications
 
Robust & Reliable
  • Built-in test capabilities
  • No external power converter required and no internal fans
  • Hot swappable units eliminate the need to power down the multiplexer, minimizing traffic disruptions
  • Optional 1:1 protected CDAX units improve reliability and circuit availability

Network Managed
  • End-to-end circuit monitoring
  • Integrated NMS solution with JungleMUX SONET Multiplexer networks

 

Application Flexibility

The T1MX Multiplexer, a part of the field proven JungleMUX digital transport and access system, supports a wide range of DS0 applications.

The T1MX can be deployed in several network configurations such as:
  • Terminal multiplexer
  • Add/Drop multiplexer
  • Cross connect configuration
  • Interface Units

    Supporting a wide range of DS0 interface units, the T1MX has voice, data, teleprotection and Ethernet options. For high circuit count applications, the T1MX offers expansion shelves to grow with the network’s requirements.

    Reliability

    Designed for critical infrastructure applications, the T1MX supports full duplex T1.102 (ITU-T G.703) 1.544 Mb/s channelized circuits ensuring low latency for DS0 applications.

    Local or Remote Configuration

    Allowing simple installation, ongoing management and maintenance of the multiplexer, without expensive workstations, the T1MX offers local or remote configuration, performance monitoring and diagnostics. With settings and configuration parameters maintained in non-volatile flash memory, configuration is maintained after loss of power.
