DESCRIPTION

The AM3440-A/B/C is an access DCS-MUX that can combine various digital access interfaces into E1 or T1 lines for convenient transport and switching. The AM3440 Access DCS-MUX provides access for a variety of interfaces, including mini Quad E1, Quad E1/T1, ATM/FR, 32 WAN port Router, 64 WAN port Router-A, Router-B, FOM, Terminal Server Card, G.SHDSL, G.703, U type, X.21, V.35, V36, EIA530/RS449, RS232, 8RS232, QEM, QFXO, QFXS, 8EM, 12FXS, 12FXO, 24FXS, 24FXO, and Magneto. These interfaces are compatible with other Loop products such as the Loop-H 3900 (MDSL), LoopH3300 and the Loop-U3500 (U). Using these products, a DTE interface can be extended over copper wire pairs. For as many Quad E1/T1 plug-in cards, each card can have as many as 124/96 time slots for the G.SHDSL, U, RS232, X.21, V.35, V.36 and EIA530/RS449 interfaces are then multiplexed to fill 4 E1/T1 line, with full flexibility of time slot interchange for all incoming lines. AM3440 also supports fiber optical plug-in module, which can be used to aggregate up to 4 E1 channels to single fiber optical interface to connect with other AM3440 or O9310.

AM3440-A has capacity for 12 single slots and 4 mini plug-in slots. AM3440-B has capacity for 3 single slots and 4 mini plug-in slots. AM3440-C has capacity for 5 single slots and 4 mini plug-in slots. All interface cards and controller cards can be used in AM3440-A/B/C, except for the G.SHDSL line power card, which is for the AM3440-A only and mini-slot QEM/QFXS/QFXO interface cards, which are for the AM3440-B and AM3440-C only.

This unit is a full cross-connect and can act as a mini DACS. This means that one or more of the WAN ports can be used as a Drop & Insert function with fractional E1/T1 lines, which can be muxed into a full E1/T1 line.

Redundancy is available in dual CPU controller and power supply options, making it an excellent fit for critical applications. Although the chassis does not contain and has no need for fan cooling, an external fan tray is available.

The AM3440 supports local control and diagnostics by using an external 2-line by 40-character LCD display and keypads, or by using a VT-100 terminal connected to the console port. The AM3440 also supports Ethernet, SLIP, Telnet, and SNMP, so that it can be controlled and diagnosed from remote locations as well. An in-band management channel with GUI is available. In addition to the LCD display, there are LED indications for all plug-in cards.

Application Notes

These application notes cover many aspects of Integrated Access Multiplexer applications. While some are specific to particular products, many are applicable to most any of our channel bank, IAD, or TDM aggregation products. The principles are the same.

We invest a great deal of time and effort creating tools like these to assist our customers, so most are available only to DCB customers. If you are one of our customers and don't have the required customer access password, please contact your sales representative to obtain your free password.

AM3440 E&M Operational Summary
The actual operation of E&M signaling leads is poorly understood by many technicians and engineers. This is a summary of how the AM3440 E&M interfaces operate for Type 1,2,3,4, and 5 E&M configurations. Included are RJ45 E&M Pinouts and descriptions for A-side and B-side installations.

Voice Pass-through with Loop Products
A question about pass through voice DS-0 circuits was recently raised. Loop product mapping provides a choice of "d" for data or "v" for voice to be designated for each DS-0. FXS, FXO and E&M circuits must all be set to "v" for voice. If a DS-0 carrying voice passes in and out of a T1 as a pass through, must this be set to "v" for voice? The answer is "yes". See this paper for details on setting a pass through DS-0 to "v" for voice and for verifying the setting. Download the note in PDF format.
