RAD Data Communications has introduced the Optimux-34 E3 fiber multiplexer, which promises a simple and cost-effective solution for transporting up to 16 E1 links over distances up to 110km.

The main link interface of the E1 version of the Optimux-34 fiber multiplexer can be either a standard coax E3 interface or a fiber-optic interface. Optical interfaces include 1310nm and 1550nm laser for extended range over singlemode fiber and 1310nm and 1550nm long haul for extended range over a fiber pair.

According to the company, the new fiber multiplexer offers redundant power supply and secondary link options, enhancing system reliability. The optional secondary link provides backup using automatic switchover upon main link failure. The device transmits each E1 tributary channel independently. The E1 interface can be 75 ohms unbalanced or 120 ohms balanced.

To facilitate system diagnostics, all products feature LED status indicators, AIS alarm generation, recognition, and dry contact closure upon link failure. In addition, setup, control and diagnostics can be performed through a supervisory port using an ASCII terminal, Telnet host or Web terminal, or from an SNMP management station via the Ethernet port or the dedicated management port (Ethernet or RS-232).

All versions of the product are available as compact 1U-high units for mounting in a 19-inch rack.
