Carrier Grade Dynamic Routing with RIP and OSPF
The SpectraComm IP Mini Router (SCIP-MR1-T1) blade extends the users IP networks to remote locations where routed IP networks are required. SCIP-MR provides connectivity via an integral T1 WAN port, and provides full dynamic routing capability with support for standard RIP and OSPF protocols. Enhanced security is supported with secure shell (SSH) and MD5 authenticated dynamic routing at a fraction of the cost of typical solutions and uses less than 6 watts of power. TACACS+ authentication is also supported. Network maintenance is streamlined with SCIP-MR1-T1 automatically adapting to changing network topologies and rerouting traffic around faults.
The SCIP-MR1-T1 is a rack-mount blade that can be installed in existing NEBS Level 3 certified SpectraComm 5000 shelf (16 slot) or 2000 (2 slot) shelf. For CPE applications the single slot SpectraComm 1001 or 1002 enclosures are available.
Remote SCIP-MRs can be managed via IP connection and SMART CLI, an interactive command line interface that will feel familiar to field personnel. Added features include auto-prompting for command arguments, recognition of abbreviated commands, online help and command line recall. SCIP-MR-T1 also supports firmware download and configuration download/restoral via TFTP.
Carrier Grade Dynamic Routing with RIP and OSPF
Like the SpectraComm MR1-T1 above, The SpectraComm MR1-E1 blade extends the users IP networks to remote locations where routed IP networks are required. SCIP-MR1-E1 provides connectivity via an integral E1 WAN port, and provides full dynamic routing capability with support for standard RIP and OSPF protocols. Enhanced security is supported with secure shell (SSH) and MD5 authenticated dynamic routing at a fraction of the cost of typical solutions and uses less than 6 watts of power. TACACS+ authentication is also supported. Network maintenance is streamlined with SCIP-MR1-E1 automatically adapting to changing network topologies and rerouting traffic around faults.
A powerful technology is now available from General DataComm to help Carriers reduce costs while expanding their internal IP networks, increasing revenues and providing a high margin IP service offering. SCIP LAN-X extends the reach of IP connectivity with value-added features and benefits:
As Carriers and PTTs expand and provision the use of equipment in their networks, the 100-meter distance limitation of standard Ethernet can become an issue. By extending the LAN over longer distances, the network architecture can be simplified and the need for expensive routers is eliminated. GDC's SCIP LAN-X offers out-of-band management solutions for LAN-attached IP devices over standard FT1/T1, E1/FE1, DDS or xDSL circuits. LAN extension between floors or between buildings uses the available digital technology for timely installation and management of services over existing facilities. This same technology can be used to offer transparent LAN services (TLS) to customers as a new TLS service offering.SpectraComm IP & SpectraComm IP E1
As Carriers introduce IP equipment to their networks, GDC offers two access solutions for LAN-attached IP devices and legacy (Craft Port) devices. Either mode of operation can be conducted over the Carrier's T1/FT1, E1/FE1 or DDS network, as well as over a dial-up PSTN.
When additional NEBS-compliant Ethernet connectivity is required, SC-IP can integrate with SpectraComm Ethernet Switch (SC-ES) cards, offering scalable IP connectivity in 9 or 18 port increments.
SpectraComm IP G.shdsl.bis allows Ethernet connectivity beyond the 100-meter distance limitation without the need for expensive routers. LAN extension can be accomplished with GDC's SCIP G.shdsl.bis which transports data on copper loops at rates up to 5.632 Mbps on a single loop or 11.264 Mbps on 2-loops for LAN-attached IP devices.
LAN extension between floors or between buildings using DSL technology allows timely installation and management of services over existing facilities. SCIP G.shdsl.bis delivers a reliable Ethernet extension solution for use in first mile, symmetrical, Ethernet deployments.
In the event of a loop failure, SCIP-G,shdsl.bis in 4-wire mode performs auto-fallback to single loop operation, and two-loop restoral when the failed loop recovers. Auto-fallback and Auto-restoral functions are individually enabled/disabled.
Each SCIP G.shdsl.bis unit comes equipped with two 10/100 Base-T ports and eight terminal server ports for connection to customer equipment, and is fully managed. For applications that require scalable Ethernet connections, the SpectraComm Ethernet Switch, (SCES) companion product can be deployed in 9- or 18-port increments.
The SpectraComm Ethernet Switch provides fast ethernet connectivity for internal networks, allowing a Carrier to efficiently and securely manage LAN-attached equipment. As part of the GDC SpectraComm family of products, SpectraComm Ethernet Switches offer the high reliability and NEBS safety required in Carrier environments. SC-ES can be deployed as a replacement to legacy hubs or in new installations where fast ethernet switching is desired.
The SpectraComm ADT (Asynch Data Transfer) allows Carriers and Enterprise Users to support and manage remote equipment that traditionally would require direct craft port connecton. This is accomplished by encapsulationg the asynchronous traffic and transporting the information via a secure and safe Ethernet as if it were a LAN-based application. Users can now access any craft port device on the LAN via telnet. In cases were direct LAN access is not available, connectivity can be provided via a dial-up connection using SpectraComm ADTs'integral modems. A convenient telnet menu allows device delection by description field or port number.
SpectraComm ADT also provides support for telemetry and security applications. Each SpectraComm ADT device provides up to eight contact input ports for sensing activation of an open or closed contact; and up to two contact output ports to open and close a local contact relay. SpectraComm ADT detects a contact change from its normal state and, depending on its congfiguration, will send an alarm trap, transport the contact state, or perform both trap and transport actions. A "clear" trap is sent when the contact returns to the normal state.
The SpectraComm SDT (SC-SDT) allows the transport of synchronous data traffic via standards based Ethernet. This is accomplished by encapsulating the synchronous traffic and transporting the information as if it were a LAN-based application.
SpectraComm SDT supports three individually configurable ports and a single Ethernet uplink. Each synchronous data port is configurable for rates from 2400bps to 2.048 Mbps. For applications over distances beyond the limitations of Ethernet, the SpectraComm SDT can be attached to any existing router for transport via the Wide Area Network (WAN) to the desired location. For new installations, GDCs SpectraComm IP family of routers can provide WAN connectivity using T1/FT1, E1/FE1 or G.SHDSL

The DataComm Blade Adapter allows you to use GDCs newest products without having to invest in additional shelves and provides new networking options. Beyond the legacy DataComm products that were supported by the DataComm series shelves, you will now be able to utilize existing DataComm shelves for SpectraComm and InnovX products that are direct replacements with all the features of the older DataComm series. In addition, you will be able to install GDCs new line of IP Routers, Ethernet switches and asynchronous and synchronous serial data-to-Ethernet adapters. Every new single blade product can be supported in the same shelf. As DataComm slots are used up, transition to the newer SpectraComm and InnovX platforms is simple with no compatibility or sparing issues.
Because the DataComm Adapter is compatible with all single blade line-by-line devices from both GDCs flagship SpectraComm Carrier family and the InnovX Enterprise family of products, existing DataComm shelves can now support an expanded range of applications that include; DDS, FT1, T1, T3, DSL, IP/Ethernet along with modems.
