NAMC-8569-xE1/T1

NAMC-8569-xE1/T1

Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) with 8- or 16-E1/T1 interfaces

The NAMC-8569-xE1/T1 is an Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) with a powerful Freescale Power QUICC III MPC8569 processor providing access to multiple E1/T1 in next generation systems based on MTCA and ATCA standards. The TDM-to I-TDM converter connects the on-board E1/T1 interfaces with a Gigabit Ethernet port for system interconnect (I-TDM).

The NAMC-8569-xE1/T1 is dedicated for (tele-)communication applications with extensive need for a high aggregation of multiple E1/T1 interfaces combined with access to switched networks based on high bandwidth Ethernet. The NAMC-8569-8E1/T1 base board offers 8-E1/T1 interfaces at the front panel and two 1GbE interfaces at ports 0/1 of the common options region of the AMC connector.

The optional mezzanine provides additional 8-E1/T1 interfaces and expands the board to 16-E1/T1, the NAMC-8569-16E1/T1. The NAMC-8569-xE1/T1 is optimized to process standard telecom signaling protocols (i.e. ISDN or SS7) as well as special payload handling algorithms in next generation's systems based on the MTCA or ATCA standards. Extensive software support makes the NAMC-8569-xE1/T1 an ideal choice for any voice/data application in ISDN, SS7, ATM, VoIP or 3G environments.

Access to DS3/E3 networks can be provided by a derivate of the NAMC-8569-xE1/T1, the NAMC-8569-E3/DS3.
