TDM 1001 is an optional module for Router 6000 family that can be used to provide TDM services. TDM 1001 supports up to 16 E1/T1 interfaces via Abis over IP or circuit emulation. It is managed as a virtual line card of any indoor variant of Router 6000. Management and
maintenance of TDM 1001 is done through the Router 6000 that hosts it. TDM 1001 can be software upgradable to support MLPPP in future roadmap.
As TDM interfaces are being decommissioned gradually in networks, TDM 1001 solution with Router 6000 offers a graceful migration path where performance, capacity and space of routers need not be compromised to accommodate TDM interface requirements.
Like Router 6471, TDM 1001 is a compact and temperature hardened device that is easy to maintain as it is a completely filter-less mechanical design. TDM 1001 can be placed in a hosting shelf with a Router 6471 that combined together only occupies the 1RU space of an 19in wide shelf.
Pay as you go TDM support
No need to build in TDM interfaces on routers when world is moving away from TDM.
Abis over IP Support
Abis over IP is a solution that interworks with legacy Ericsson RBS. The solution converts E1s from RBS to IP packets and is sent to the BSC using the same mobile backhaul infrastructure as 3G/4G traffic removing the E1 transport requirement for the location.
Standard Circuit Emulation Support
Circuit emulation is a mature technology being deployed across the world.
TDM 1001 implements standard circuit emulation solution that can be used to interop to 3rd party devices.
