HANOVER, Germany -- With its new LineRunner SHDSL DTU CPE family and added functions in MileGate and UMUX, KEYMILE has enhanced the TDM capabilities in multi-service access systems. As a result, network operators can now transmit two TDM services at the same time via one or two copper wire pairs.

KEYMILE is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of Next-Generation data transmission systems. It has significantly increased the capabilities of its multi-service access platforms MileGate and UMUX. The new CPE family (Customer Premises Equipment) LineRunner SHDSL DTU can be connected to the SHDSL-TDM cards in MileGate and UMUX, or operated as a stand-alone solution. Depending on the type, LineRunner SHDSL DTU has one or two application interfaces that are capable of transmitting two TDM services at the same time. As interfaces, there is a choice of E1, n x 64 kbps data interfaces and Ethernet. Up to 11.4 Mbps can be transmitted in point-to-point operation. When connected to one of the multi-service platforms, one or two services each at up to 2 Mbps are available.

The SHDSL-TDM cards in the UMUX (STIC1/STIC2) and MileGate (STIM1) multi-service access systems support the new LineRunner SHDSL DTUs. Therefore, both systems can provide two services via one or two copper wire pairs. After a software update, the CPEs can also be connected to previously installed cards (STIC1/STIC2 respectively STIM1).

In MileGate's case, the software update gives the SHDSL card more new functions. Sub-bitrate modules from the LineRunner SHDSL DTM CPE family are now supported. Therefore, data services at a bandwidth of under 64 kbps can be offered. Further new functions mean that up to two repeaters per SHDSL transmission path can be used and remote MileGates coupled via SHDSL-TDM paths.

With the new functions of the cards and the CPE, public and private network operators are now even more flexible in providing TDM and Ethernet/IP-based services simultaneously from one single network element. Costs can also be saved by integrating a variety of different services in one single network element in a standardised network management system.
