- Supports Pseudowire Emulation Edge-to-Edge (PWE3-RFC 3985).
- Supports craft interface management via the Total Access 5000 System Controller Module (SCM).
The pure IP/Ethernet core of the Total Access 5000 is ideal for supporting emerging services like IPTV and VoIP, but there remains a large embedded base of traditional TDM voice switching infrastructure deployed.
The DS1 32-Port Line Module also supports Pseudowire Emulation Edge-to-Edge (PWE3-RFC 3985). PWE3 allows the transport of a traditional DS1 circuit over Ethernet utilizing Structured Asynchronous Transport over Packet (SAToP).
The DS1 32-Port Line Module supports craft interface management via the Total Access 5000 System Controller Module (SCM). More comprehensive management is available using the Total Access Element Management System (EMS). All provisioning data is supported through the SCM communications link. All provisioning data is stored in nonvolatile memory for recovery after a power loss and optional auto-provisioning is supported via the SCM.
