Leased Line Converters

Close

This section describes those Metrodata products which offer an effective way of converting between the high performance leased line interfaces: Nx64kbps, E1, E2, E3, DS3, STM-1, OC-3 allowing interfacing to HSSI, X.21, V.35, E1, T1, Ethernet ports on equipment such as routers and PBXs.

This conversion is performed transparently and so is independent of protocol or router configuration. These DSU's, offer a comprehensive management functionality which allows the full range of monitoring and configuration control via either local or remote management. This can be done, via a local terminal port, remote access via an IP network or in band management.

Select your leased line from the tabs below:

These products allow connection of customer equipment to Nx64kbps leased line services.
