RICi-T3 is an intelligent converter connecting Fast Ethernet LANs over T3 circuits
RICi-T3 is an intelligent converter connecting Fast Ethernet LANs over T3 circuits. The RAD
enables service providers and ISPs to supply transparent Ethernet services, without interfering with user traffic.
RICi-T3 has one framed T3 port, and one 10/100BaseTx port. Packets are forwarded from the Ethernet network to the T3 network at wire speed, fully utilizing the expensive T3 circuit. The 802.1p priority scheme
enables users to define three different QoS levels, according to the application requirements. The Fast Ethernet
bridge in the
RICi-T3 handles 1536-byte frames supporting VLAN applications. In filter mode, the bridge
learns MAC addresses and filters local traffic, and in transparent mode it forwards any received packet. VLAN
stacking transports user traffic transparently, keeping the user LAN settings intact. In addition, the management traffic may be tagged with a different VLAN, fully separating user traffic from management data. The DHCP
client automatically obtains IP address, IP mask and default gateway, minimizing installation time. The RAD RICi-T3
provides a fault
propagation feature. When a link failure is detected the RICi-T3 shuts down the user port.
