The EdgeAccess® 2346 T3 DS3 fiber modem provides cost effective, small footprint, reliable optical extension of T3/DS3 (44.736 Mbps) signals on single mode or multimode fiber. It is ideal for extending PBX’s, routers, DS3 multiplexers, and ATM switches. The 2346 retimes and reshapes the DS3 signal allowing it to provide the clean and stable signal needed for longest possible extension distances. Up to 100 km extension is possible over a pair of single mode fiber and up 40km over single strand of single mode fiber. A Multimode version is also available for shorter extensions. NEBS level 3 compliant and certified, the 2346 provides a reliable and robust solution suitable for carrier class deployments. Mounting in the UCS chassis and a variety of standalone enclosures, the 2346 addresses a wide range of application scenarios and requirements. In a managed EdgeAccess® enclosure, SNMP and TCP/IP are supported to allow remote management over Ethernet or modem dial-in using SLIP/PPP. A menu driven Management Interface is accessible via Terminal or Telnet connection. Graphical Management is also available with CanogaView®, a Smart Element Manager. The Management Interface for the T3 - DS3 fiber optic modems provides a real-time link monitoring, configuration, status, and diagnostics. Complete management of the remote modem, including setup and software downloads, is conducted on the SideBand Management Channel, a non-intrusive channel dedicated for management. To ease troubleshooting and problem isolation, the 2346 offers local and remote loopbacks along with front panel indicators for quick visual status.
