AC2041 is a 4-wire ShDSL Multiservice Network Termination. The ShDSL interface is configurable as a single link with an aggregate symmetric rate up to 4608 kbps (using 2-pair bonding) or as 2 independent ShDSL links (2 different links up to 2312 kbps each).
AC2041 offers flexible ShDSL Network Termination Point with different operating modes:
- ATM Circuit Emulation Service
- Frame Relay to ATM Interworking
- Cell Bridging to transport ATM cells between the ShDSL network interface and the E1 service interface
- IP Routing and MAC Bridging
High-Performance Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer Transmission
Used over an ATM based network, AC2041 connected to a DSLAM, terminates the physical ShDSL and many other xDSL links. AC2041 cross connects and concentrates up to 128 Virtual Circuit Connections (VCC) over a single or a dual high speed link to the backbone ATM network, reaching up to 4608kbps (4-wire mode). Deploying an inexpensive and highly scalable network infrastructure using AC2041 replaces obsolete DCE, HDSL transceivers, TDM cross-connects, and other leased linenetwork equipment.
