A quick solution for channel bank obsolescence. For networks looking to quickly replace their channel banks with a similar solution, JumboBank draws from the industry leading JumboSwitch and helps utilities take a more cautious migration approach by updating just the communications component in their network and preserving their DS0 devices and T1 backhaul.
Two card slots for a Primary and Secondary T1 module
The application shows 4 cards (2x 4W E&M, FXS and Serial) at the central site connecting to 3 remote locations. Substation B and Substation C are connected using a single T1 line from the Central Site to Substation B. The Central Site communicates with Substation C through the cascaded connection at Substation B.
There are 8 slots for interface cards on the 5U chassis. These can be combined to transport multiple cards over one T1 line. The application below shows 8 cards at the Central Site. 4 of these cards are combined (2x serial RS232 cards, 1x 4W E&M card and 1x FXO card) making up 16 channels going from the Central Site to Substation D over a single T1 line.
Combining cards, assigning T1 lines, setting up interface cards, all configurations are done with this rotary switch.
JumboBank was designed to have no software for a more stable and reliable product lifespan. It also helps that users don’t have to hassle with firmware updates or worry about cybersecurity issues.
Just like its low-density cousin the Mini Channel Bank, the JumboBank is also equipped with an R2 button.
The Reset*Reset (R2) button quickly identifies T1/E1 disruptions on local or remote units. Corresponding alarm and remote LEDs communicate any signal disruptions between systems. Also, when errors are resolved there is no need to drive to a remote site to obtain or reset the status of such device when it can be done from the local unit.
