The Quad Fibre Loop Converter* (QFLC) system is a cost-effective optical multiplexer that
transports four E1s over two singlemode fibres. The QFLC system can be configured to maximize
facility utilization for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint topologies.
The QFLC system can also be used for fibre ring networks for both dual-feed and single-feed
applications to a customer. The QFLC system accepts standard electrical E1 signals and can be
used in a stand-alone configuration with any approved multiplexer or network element that
generates a standard E1 (6.703 Mbps) signal.
ADC has designed a family of Fibre Loop Converters (FLCs) that provide a cost-effective
alternative to deploying service over copper while avoiding the high capital investment
of primary multiplexers and Fibre optic terminals. This family includes products
designed for economical distribution of single or multiple 2.048 Mb signals.
The E1 Quad FLC multiplexes up to four 2.048 Mb signals for transport over two fibres
at typical distances of 72 Km (44 miles). The E1 QFLC system consists of a rack
mounted central exchange shelf and a wall or rack mounted customer premises shelf.
The Soneplex E1 Quad Loop Extender (EQLX)
module converts four multiplexed, E1 signals
into an optical E2 for delivery over two
singlemode optical fibres. The optical E2 is
converted back to four E1s at the customer
premises. It supports optional 1+1 protection
and provides extensive alarms and diagnostic
ADC’s Soneplex system is the lowest total
cost solution for carriers to grow their E1-
based business services.
Consumer and business customers today seek wireless service that is readily
accessible, benefit rich, secure and affordable. Voice, data and video services,
Internet games, and mobile office access must all be provided to meet growing
demand from customers. Rollout of third-generation networks has made real-time
information flow of news, music, sports updates, browsing and image sharing
a reality that is driving growth and change in the network. The move toward
faster service will continue without end and requires that both bandwidth and
network locations be increased.
