EIA530 to HSSI Conversion
Metrodata's BC2x00 family of Baseband Converters allow the latest generation of Serial Link and Bulk Encryption Devices using the EIA530 interface to be connected to HSSI satcoms equipment, routers and radio systems.
HSSI to EIA530 interface conversion
- Transparent operation at up to 20 Mbps
- DCE or DTE options
- Configurable control signal mapping
- Easy to install & maintain
- Integral auto-sensing power supply (100-250V AC or -40V DC versions)
- 12-24V DC power supply available on request
- Compact modem style unit, built to European standards
- Rack mounting kits for 2 or 18 units available
By utilizing Metrodata's BC2x00 Baseband Converters, it is possible to utilize a mixture of new and existing/legacy equipment. Typically used to interface Cisco HSSI Routers to EIA530 Cryptos, or EIA530 Cryptos to HSSI Satcom Modems or HSSI Radio Relay Systems, the BC2x00 baseband converter family presents a major step in solving interoperability and interfacing issues within Defence networking.
The BC2000 enables the connection of an EIA530 router port to a HSSI encrypter, satellite modem, or microwave radio system, whereas the BC2100 enables the connection of a HSSI router port to an EIA530 encrypter, satellite modem, or microwave radio system.
The product range consists of two devices: the BC2100 which connects EIA530 equipment to a HSSI DTE (e.g. a router), and the BC2000 which connects EIA530 equipment to a HSSI DCE (e.g. a satellite modem). With a maximum speed of 20Mbps the BC2x00 family of Baseband Converters supports the maximum rate supported by EIA530 equipment.
Both the BC2000 and BC2100 support control signal level conversion and pass through.
Satellite Modem Applications
- Connecting an EIA530 router to a HSSI satellite modem
- Connecting a HSSI router to an EIA530 satellite modem
- Connecting a HSSI crypto to an EIA530 router and an EIA530 satellite modem
- Connecting an EIA530 crypto to a HSSI router and a HSSI satellite modem
This application shows a BC2000 connecting an EIA530 router card to a HSSI satellite modem. The BC2000 presents a HSSI DTE interface to the satellite modem, thereby operating at the clock rates specified by the satellite modem. The BC2000 presents an EIA530 DCE interface to the routers, thereby passing on the satellite modem clocks on to the router to tell the router what speed to operate at.
