The FCD-IPM is an E1/T1 or fractional E1/T1 modular integrated access device (IAD) with a built-in router. The FCD-IPM enables service providers to bundle data and voice services and Internet access over a single E1 or T1 line.

The modular design enables carriers to adopt and comply with changing customer needs. The modules include:- four or eight analog voice ports- one or two fractional E1/T1 ports- universal data port- 4-port hub/switch module The FCD-IPM is available with a software- selectable internal line termination unit (LTU), and allows direct connection to the E1 network or connection via an external LTU.

A built-in CSU/DSU allows direct connection to a T1 network. The integrated router supports:- IP and IPX routing and transparent bridging- backup router link capability- quick setup and configuration- Solid Firewall (session-based) protection- NAT and Single IP address translation- PAP/CHAP security- OSPF.  The FCD-IPM can also be used as a rate and interface converter or as an integrating multiplexer for fractional E1/T1 analog voice and data services. Optionally, the FCD-IPM can support a built-in SHDSL modem, eliminating the need for an external modem.

The FCD-IPM can operate with RAD.s modular DXC multiservice access node products for multilink star applications, including access to SDH networks. The DXCs and FCD-IPM operate under centralized SNMP network management. Timeslot assignment is programmable, allowing data from the LAN, sub-E1/T1 port, analog voice ports and data port to be placed into timeslots, either consecutively or alternately. The FCD-IPM also allows flexible timeslot allocation of the data port timeslots. Each timeslot of the sub-E1/T1 port is placed on the same timeslot of the main E1/T1 link.Data from the data port can be either assigned transparently to the main link timeslots or routed together with the LAN data.

Immunity to hardware and power failures is provided by bypassing the sub-E1/T1 port to the main E1/T1 link, ensuring uninterrupted service to the sub-E1/T1 port. The E1 interface meets all requirements of ITU recommendations G.703, G.704, G.706 and G.732.The T1 interface is compatible with virtually all carrier-provided T1 services. Setup, control and monitoring of status and diagnostic information can be activated in three ways:- ASCII terminal connected to the async control port- SNMP management- in-band management through a dedicated timeslot.

The FCD-IPM supports an internal SNMP agent and can be controlled by any generic SNMP station or by the RADview SNMP network management application. The FCD-IPM supports dial-in, which can be used for remote out-of-band configuration and monitoring. Maintenance capabilities include user-activated local and remote loopbacks. The FCD-IPM is available as a standalone unit for the desktop or a 19" rack shelf.
