Cost-effective DS3/DS1 Grooming


The MX3208 and MX3216 are compact, cost-saving solutions for grooming and drop-and-insert applications. Packaged in a robust, compact chassis, the MX3208 or MX3216 maps DS1s between the two DS3 interfaces with access to eight or 16 DS1s at any mode. Here, the MX3216 grooms up to 16 T1s of voice and data onto a single channelized DS3 to the network. Drop and insert capability allows some traffic to be allocated from a network DS3 to a channelized T3 device at the customer premise as well. An integral router and four-port terminal server provide Ethernet extension and management access.
