Analog Devices today announced a chip that enables a new level of communications capacity for networking and remote access equipment. The new ADSP-21mod980 contains 24 ports, the equivalent of a T1 communications line. The new high- density Internet access solution enables the convergence of voice and data networks through a unique ability to configure any port for any protocol.
The ADSP-21mod980 offers flexibility, density, power consumption and operational savings for Internet service providers (ISPs). The device enables ISPs to become both data and Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs), expanding access offerings while reducing total cost of operation through reductions in administration, facilities, equipment and WAN services.
The ADSP-21mod980 features a universal software package for V.90, K56Flex, V.34, ISDN, Fax (FoIP) and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) protocols. Service providers are able to make significant cost savings by the flexibility and increased load handling capabilities of ADI's any-protocol-on-any-port device. Each of the 24 ports on the ADSP-21mod980 is able to independently process different standards.
Server Technology's Sentry 48 VDC Approved For Co-Location
Server Technology announced that its Sentry 48 VDC Remote Power Manager & Intelligent Power Distribution Unit has passed all requirements for Level Three Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS) compliance and has been approved for co-location at Bell Atlantic and SBC Communications facilities.
The co-location approval by Bell Atlantic and SBC Communications, which includes Southwestern Bell, Pacific Bell and Nevada Bell, further establishes the Sentry 48 VDC as an industrial-class remote power management solution for service providers offering high-speed data and voice communications services.
For companies seeking to co-locate equipment within a telco central office, the NEBS-compliant Sentry 48VDC provides an added level of assurance that their network equipment maintains high availability. A number of major Internet Server Providers (ISPs), Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs), Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs) and Web Hosting companies have implemented Server Technology's Sentry 48 VDC. It can be deployed in service provider central offices, Network operating Centers (NOCs), remote Points-of-Presence (POPs) or corporate data centers.
