RAD MBE10-8 Single or Dual Link Ethernet
Remote Access Router  

 FEATURES

  • The MBE Family is part of the LAN RANger Series of Ethernet Remote Access Routers that provide cost effective remote access connectivity for SoHo (Small office Home office) applications.
  • The MBE Family supports remote access routing and bridging for connecting remote PCs or LANs to a central LAN over a wide variety of WAN interfaces and services, including ISDN, Frame Relay, Leased Line, dial up modems, and DDS.
  • Routing and bridging are performed on a link-by-link basis. There are no bridging or routing limitations on the central LAN. However, additional bridges should not be connected to the remote LAN.
  • IP can be routed over PPP, SLIP, CSLIP or Frame Relay;
    IPX can be routed over PPP or Frame Relay.
  • Router links can operate opposite any PPP standard compliant device, including third party routers and software based PPP dialers (e.g., Windows 95).
  • Bridge links are transparent to layer 3 protocols, such as NetBIOS and DECNET.
  • The Single IP address translation feature allows a small or medium office LAN to connect to the Internet using a single, dynamically or statically allocated IP address from the central access router.
  • For router links, the IP parameters and the configuration file are learned automatically from any BOOTP server via standard BOOTP protocol.
  • Transparent remote to remote forwarding enables direct data transfer between links whether the links are bridge or router (see Figure 1).
  • Multilink PPP support enables use of ISDN at 128 kbps.
  • The MBE family includes the following models:

    - MBE10-1, single link router supporting a single remote station for bridge links or full LAN segment for router links.

    - MBE10-1D, dual link router supporting a single remote station on each bridge link or a full LAN segment on each router link.

    - MBE10-8, single link router supporting a remote Ethernet LAN of up to 80 workstations on bridge links or a full LAN segment on router links.

    - MBE10-8D, dual link router supporting a remote Ethernet LAN of up to 80 workstations on each bridge link or a full LAN segment on each router link.

    INTERFACES

  • Both the LAN and WAN link interfaces are modular, and accommodate several standards.
  • LAN:
    The Ethernet/802.3 LAN interface options supported are:
    - AUI (10Base5)
    - BNC (10Base2)
    - UTP Ethernet (10BaseT).
  • WAN:
    WAN link interface modules include:
    - V.24/RS-232, which can be configured for asynchronous operation over dial-up modem links. These links operate at data rates from 2.4 kbps to 115.2 kbps. Use of compression modems improves performance and throughput of the MBEs.
    - Digital interfaces (V.24/RS-232, V.35, X.21, RS-530 and V.36) for synchronous leased lines at data rates up to 1.5 Mbps
    - Built-in CSU/DSU for connection to leased lines operating at up to 56 kbps.
    - An internal ISDN terminal adapter module. Two B channels are available on the dual port module as well as one redundant link (sync/async). ISDN switches supported include 5ESS, and DMS-100. The ETSI NT1 European standard, and I430 are also supported.
    - A built-in 4-wire, short range modem. This option permits operation at data rates up to 768 kbps (See Figure 5, and Table 1). It is suitable for campus or factory environments where either a single station or a workgroup LAN requires connection to the LAN, beyond the distance normally attainable over copper media. The 4 wire interface model has an internal clock with selectable data rates from 16 kbps to 768 kbps according to the required range.

    CONTROL

  • Quick setup and configuration is performed via terminal emulator attached to control port or by using TELNET access into the device over the LAN or WAN.
  • An SNMP agent provides in-band or out-of-band management by RADview or any other standard SNMP management station.
  • Software downloading is available via the control port, using XMODEM, and via LAN or WAN using TFTP.

    Parameter file downloading and uploading is available via LAN or WAN using TFTP.
    Product configurations and software are saved in FLASH memory. Two versions of the software are stored for redundancy.

  • An SNMP agent provides management by RADview or any other standard SNMP management station.

    SECURITY

  • An integral Solid Firewall protects an office LAN from undesired entry from the Internet, using session based firewalling.
  • PAP/CHAP security is provided for users utilizing router links.
  • Dialback over PPP to a station using a router link at a fixed location is supported in Microsoft environments (e.g., opposite Windows 95). This adds security by verifying user identity and location. The dialback feature helps reduce costs to mobile users.
  • Internet Access authentication is provided by PAP/CHAP and the Scripting Tool.
  • Undesired Access to the WEB RANger via TELNET or SNMP can be blocked or password protected.

    WAN ECONOMY

  • Connection On Demand (COD) allows links to be connected or disconnected according to time, traffic or management. COD may be triggered based on user defined masks.

    Spoofing is used to reduce WAN link up-time and traffic by increasing the period between RIP, SAP, or IPX Keep Alive broadcasts.

    Filters based on user definable masks improve WAN utilization by ensuring that only necessary packets are transmitted over the WAN. To ensure high performance and easy installation, a special hardware filtering technique is used.

    MISCELLANEOUS

  • MBE is supplied as a stand alone unit. Special hardware for mounting either a single unit or two units side-by-side in a 19" rack, using minimal rack space of 1U (1.75") in height, can be ordered separately (see ORDERING).
