The Soneplex Broadband system is an efficient, cost-
effective solution for T1-based service delivery. It
supports DS3 or STS-1 network interfaces and up to
28 DS1 loop transport modules. Integrated network
management lets carriers save on overall operations
costs through the entire system lifecycle.
The Soneplex DS3 Remote Control System provides for centralized manage-
ment of up to seven remotely located Soneplex Broadband Systems. By using
an existing overhead channel in DS3 links, provisioning, monitoring, and
alarm information can be easily attained without the need for a secondary
communications network. This channel is used to transport TL1, TBOS, or
menu messages from each remote Soneplex Broadband System to a network
Operating System or a craft terminal.
This application note provides detailed alternatives for transporting the Soneplex
Broadband and Soneplex Loop Extender alarm and performance information from a
remote location back to the central/hubbing location.
The Soneplex Broadband System is used as an intelligent network hub for DS1 hicap
distribution in the local loop. The network interface is one standard electrical DS3
signal. This DS3 signal is demultiplexed into twenty-eight DS1 circuits, which can
then be delivered to up to twenty-eight remote locations utilizing either fiber or
Streaker (STK) module is an optional,
low-cost maintenance module used to verify local
wiring in a central office environment from the main
distribution frame (MDF) to a Soneplex Broadband
or Loop Extender System or from the Soneplex Loop
Extender System to a DSX panel
With the recent introduction of the CPM (Continuous Performance Monitoring) module
to the remote QLX product line and Soneplex MPU software release 4.2, DS1 hicap route
diversity can now be added to the "path protection" feature associated with many fiber
rings and OCn multiplexers.
DS1 hicap route diversity allows service providers to extend path protection into the local
loop and provide complete DS1 circuit protection for critical hicap customers.
In many applications, T1 repeater and other hicap transmission equipment lines are
terminated in remote cabinets in 3192-style shelves or racks. Now, with the recent introduction
of the Soneplex 3192R HDSL remote module, HDSL circuits originating from a
Soneplex central office terminal (COT) module can be terminated remotely in 3192-style
shelves. The 3192 shelf is a standard shelf configuration commonly used in the industry.
3192 shelves support 28 module slots and each slot is provided power, local alarm contact
points and circuit pin-outs for loop and line wiring for the module....
High-bit-rate digital subscriber line (HDSL) circuits for the delivery of DS1 services can
now be extended to 36,000 feet by implementing the newly introduced Soneplex main
processor unit (MPU) module with software release 5.2 and the latest version Soneplex
HDSL central office repeater and remote modules. This allows monitoring of the signals
from the central office along each span.
