CHIASSO, Switzerland -- Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet access solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks over copper and fiber access infrastructures, today launched its new intelligent Multiservice Gateway (iMG), the AT-iMG646MOD. Designed to withstand the rigors of outside installation, the new gateway can deliver high-performance broadband for both residential and business applications. The unique design enables Network Service Providers (NSPs) to install uplink modules into the AT-iMG646MOD for a rich set of subscriber-facing options. The first release of the product, available now, supports a 100BX single-fiber uplink plug-in module and an HPNAv3 module for delivering 100Mbps data rates over existing in-home coaxial cables. The AT-iMG646MOD is supplied - with six user 10/100TX Ethernet ports and four FXS ports providing full-featured lifeline POTS services.

Optimized for IP Triple Play Services

The AT-iMG646MOD includes advanced packet processing technology that provides low latency, wirespeed throughput, and fine-grained Quality of Service control. As a result, it is perfectly optimized for the reliable delivery of voice and Internet data, as well as multiple channels of standard definition and high definition TV.

Cost-effective Installation

In residential applications, the AT-iMG646MOD enables the NSPs to benefit from reduced operational expenses (OPEX) due to its simple and flexible installation. First, the HPNAv3 option reduces subscriber installation time by allowing video and/or Internet access to be distributed throughout the home over existing wiring, eliminating the need for NSPs to pay connection labor costs. Installation is also simplified through a suite of management tools, including the sophisticated and powerful AlliedView(TM) Network Management Software (AlliedView(TM) NMS), that substantially decreases the time needed to provision and deploy large networks. Second, the built-in home wiring diagnostic capabilities of the AT-iMG646MOD provide further OPEX savings. Standard metallic loop test capability is built into each FXS port, while each 10/100TX port comes with integrated Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) capabilities that identify CAT5 opens and shorts. These tests can quickly identify faulty home wiring, accelerating both installation and service restoration.

Top-quality VoIP and POTS Service

Like all other Allied Telesis iMG products, the AT-iMG646MOD is certified for use with virtually all Class 5 equivalent MGCP or SIP softswitches. Its high- performance digital signal processing provides superlative VoIP quality, in the presence of other packet based services. The AT-iMG646MOD also includes state of the art POTS line drivers that can adapt to loop conditions and ensure trouble-free performance with all types of telephones.
