analog monitoring, and increased connectivity options
Applied Innovation Inc. (Nasdaq:AINN AINN Artificial Intelligence Neural Network ) announced the release today at the Supercomm show in the Georgia World Congress Center The Georgia World Congress Center or GWCC is the major convention center in Atlanta. It is the fourth-largest convention center in the United States at 1.4 million ft2 (130,000 m2) and hosts more than a million visitors each year. , Atlanta, Georgia of AIscout-2, a second generation mediation and concentration device for data communications data communications, application of telecommunications technology to the problem of transmitting data, especially to, from, or between computers. In popular usage, it is said that data communications make it possible for one computer to "talk" with another. networks. AIscout-2 brings increased connectivity and functionality to the popular AIscout(TM) with the addition of Ethernet switch ports, analog monitoring, and dual WAN connections.
The AIscout was introduced in 1999 to provide an economical connectivity solution for local loop data communication. It combines concentration and mediation in a single device and has been widely deployed in small central offices, controlled environment vaults and co-location sites. The AIscout transports operation, administration, maintenance, and provisioning data between network elements and operational support systems.
The addition of Ethernet switch ports in the AIscout-2 allows the device to be used to segment ports by utilizing port-based VLANs, reducing traffic and congestion The condition of a network when there is not enough bandwidth to support the current traffic load.
congestion - When the offered load of a data communication path exceeds the capacity. . New analog monitoring capabilities expand the unit's functionality and versatility by allowing monitoring of variables such as temperatures, voltages and pressures. The addition of dual fiber connections provides redundancy for SONET ring The architecture used in SONET technology. SONET rings, known as "self-healing rings," use two or more transmission paths between network nodes, which are typically digital cross-connects (DCSs) or add/drop multiplexers (ADMs). applications. The unit can also be configured with dual T1 or E1 connections, or combinations of fiber, T1 and E1.
"The AIscout has been widely accepted because it reduces the number of circuits required for monitoring and maintenance, which provides more circuits for subscriber revenue," said Robert L. Smialek, President and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Applied Innovation. "The AIscout-2 enhances the value of this proven solution by opening new applications and expanding connectivity options."
