Overview  

Know no boundaries. Patton’s ForeFront™ Access Infrastructure Solutions delivers a scalable carrier-class access platform with next-generation network delivery of narrowband, broadband, and multimedia services. Using industry-standard CompactPCI open-systems architecture, the ForeFront AIS allows deployment of Patton’s TDM, packet, dedicated, and dial-up system cards as well as third-party cPCI resources…all within the same chassis!

The ForeFront System offers a robust, reliable solution complete with power distribution, thermal management, and a high-speed backplane. The shelf fits into a standard 19-in. rack. Each shelf has integrated cooling and flexible power options, and boasts 1+1 or N+1 redundancy with AC or DC combinations. The high speed backplane supports a wide variety of multimedia—from TDM nx64 to packet, IP, and cell traffic. Field serviceable hot-swappable components provide high availability while the advanced design avoids single points of failure.

Select any combination of system, peripheral, media, trunking, and matrix cards for a total access solution. For network services, choose from a wide variety of system cards—from DSL to RAS; Packet/DSLAM to DACS. For complete flexibility, system cards can be mixed in any combination.

The ForeFront AIS system supports users with solutions that will grow as technology grows. The advantages of the ForeFront AIS are undeniable, so step up to the ForeFront and ahead of the curve with Patton’s ForeFront Access Infrastructure Solutions.
