• Compatible with AC or DC DataComm shelves.
• Puts empty DataComm slots into service with the latest network access products from GDC.
• Accepts a wide variety of GDC’s Telco-tough Spectra-Comm and Innovx Enterprise products.
• All compatible GDC product cards are hot-swappable into an installed Blade Adapter.
• Customers can retain their DataComm cabling scheme or employ SpectraComm cabling.
• Cost-effective, simplified sparing for more flexible inventories.
• Seamless transition to newest SpectraComm and Innovx platforms.


GDC customers with thousands of legacy DataComm shelves installed in their networks can utilized empty slots for GDC’s newest products without having to invest in additional shelves. The new DataComm Blade Adapter plugs into any two adjacent DataComm slots effortlessly without tools. Shelf backplanes are made fully compatible with card edge connectors which can be cabled up using
either existing DataComm cable schemes or SpectraComm cables and adapters.

Scaleable and Flexible Connectivity

The DataComm Adapter is compatible with line-by-line single blade devices from both GDC’s flagship Spectra-Comm Carrier family of products and the Innovx Enterprise family of products. SpectraComm and Innovx products are 7-inch by 9.5-inch (178 mm by 241 mm) printed circuit cards that conform to GDC’s SpectraComm format.  With the Blade Adapter, existing DataComm shelves can now support these devices which offer an expanded range of applications that include; DDS, FT1, T1, T3, DSL, IP/
Ethernet along with modems.

Expanded Applications Support

The DataComm Blade Adapter provides GDC customers with new networking options that move beyond the legacy DataComm products designed for the DataComm series shelves. Compatible SpectraComm and Innovx products are direct replacements with all the features of the older DataComm series. In addition, customers can install GDC’s new line of IP Routers, Ethernet switches and asynchronous and synchronous serial data-to-Ethernet adapters.  Future releases of line-by-line single blade products will be
supported in both SpectraComm and DataComm shelves alike. As customers use up their open slots they can transition over to the newer SpectraComm and Innovx platforms and not be concerned with compatibility or sparing.
