FCD-IPD Dual E1 Router
FCD-IPD is a dual E1 main link router, enabling E1 bandwidth to be shared over SDH or other E1 rings. The RAD FCD-IPD is specially adapted for management applications in SDH environments. In these applications, FCD-IPD can manage up to 100 add-drop multiplexers (ADMs) from different manufacturers over one shared E1 link with full 2-Mbps bandwidth for high-speed management.
In ring (see Figure 1) or daisy chain (see Figure 2) topologies customer LANs are shared between multiple sites. Alternative routing is
provided, if a physical ring failure occurs. In Layer 2 applications, spanning tree protocols enable formation of a protected Layer-2 ring. A specially developed proprietary routing protocol supports up to 100 hops.
FCD-IPD Supported WAN services are:
Dual E1 main links, with or without LTU, operating at up to 2.048 Mbps
Frame Relay with auto-learn of DLCI and maintenance protocol.
FCD-IPD supports IP routing.
FCD-IPD Internet access capabilities are enhanced through:
PAP/CHAP – authentication thatprovides IP service access
Solid Firewall – protects an office LAN from undesired entry from the Internet
NAT – allows the sharing of several legal IP addresses between the various LAN users
Single IP Address Translation – allows a small or medium office LAN to connect to the Internet using a single dynamically or statically allocated IP address
DHCP Server – allows the sharing of IP address pools between DHCP clients on the LAN.
The RAD FCD-IPD can be easily configured through a quick setup menu using a terminal attached to the control port or by Telnet access over the LAN/WAN.
The SNMP agent provides management by RADview or any other standard SNMP management station.
Undesired access to FCD-IPD via Telnet or SNMP can be blocked or password protected.
The dual-level management authentication allows user access to router configuration parameters, while restricting user access to
network configuration parameters.
Software download is available via the control port using XMODEM and via LAN/WAN using TFTP.
Parameter file download and upload is available via LAN or WAN using TFTP
