ADTRAN has applied its industry-leading carrier class expertise to the MX2800 STS-1 Access Multiplexer, creating a product that meets the most stringent carrier class requirements. The MX2800 STS-1 offers bandwidth consolidation at a low price and in the smallest footprint available in the industry. Measuring only one rack unit high in 19-inch or 23-inch rackmount configurations, this compact device gives Network Service Providers and enterprise users a powerful tool for consolidating 28 T1 signals onto a SONET STS-1 tributary.The MX2800 houses two hot-swappable controller cards capable of multiplexing T1s or E1s onto an STS-1 tributary. The two controller cards also provide built-in 1:1 redundancy for the DS1 and STS-1 signals as well as redundant STS-1 connections. Advance diagnostics include CSU loopbacks, NIU loopbacks and built in BERT (Bit Error Rate Testing). A fully connectorized backplane means no wire wrapping and quick, easy installation. Accessories available for the MX2800 STS-1 include a DSX-1 patch panel that breaks out the 28 DSX-1s into 28 individual RJ48 interfaces and a battery backup system that provides eight hours of battery backup. By utilizing the optional fan module, up to 40 MX2800s can be mounted into a standard seven-foot rack. As with all ADTRAN products, the MX2800 STS-1 offers comprehensive management options. It features a VT100 terminal interface for local configuration. To support SNMP, Telnet and TL1 alarming management, the MX2800 STS-1 has an integrated 10BaseT Ethernet port. Carriers looking to maximize their copper investment and consolidate their services in the most efficient manner will find the MX2800 STS-1 will pay off quickly. Class 5 switches that have STS-1 voice interfaces can easily be converted to DSX-1 interfaces using the MX2800. This gives service providers a cost-effective way to better utilize switch resources while offering T1 voice services to customers.
