DGI Drummond Group Inc. Technologies (DGI), a premier supplier of long-distance and cellular switching products, announced today the availability of the new DIF-3060-3HD Triple Density Digital Interface Frame.
The new product from DGI designed specifically for IXC (1) (IntereXchange Carrier) An organization that provides interstate (long distance) communications services within the U.S., which includes AT&T, MCI, Sprint and more than 700 others. See LATA.

midmost of market fluctuation. In order to help facilitate a revenue turnaround for their customers, DGI offers a solution in the DIF-3060-3HD that dramatically decreases overall costs.
Over the last six months, DGI created a totally compatible, low cost, triple density frame that offers 4,608 ports in the same space that previously provided only 1,536 ports. The new design of the DIF-3060-3HD integrates echo cancellation The elimination of an echo in a two-way voice transmission. Echo is created in the telephone company's central office switch when two-wire lines from the customer are converted to four-wire lines for backbone trunks. and tone detection with the latest VLSI/PLD technology resulting in a 67 percent power savings in one-third the previously required space. Incorporating dramatically increased ports for existing floor space, will cut costs and eliminate the space problem currently plaguing service providers.
"The introduction of the DIF-3060-3HD frame cuts cost, triples the port capacity of current frames and directly remedies the current space challenges faced by service providers," said Lyle Coffman, 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. and president of DGI. "By freeing up valuable floor space, DGI is giving service providers the opportunity to install additional revenue generating equipment at a price that is 25 to 30 percent lower than DGI's other high density frames. Service providers can also replace three DTF (Digital Tape Format) A high-performance magnetic tape technology from Sony that was based on the helical scan transport and cartridge shell of Sony's highly successful 1/2" Digital Betacam. frames with one DIF-3060-3HD and eliminate the need for a new multi-million dollar facility."
The DIF-3060-3HD contains six double-density Digital Interface Shelves with integrated echo cancellation and tone detection, as well as high-density Bus terminator and PCM (1) See phase change memory.
(2) (Plug Compatible Manufacturer) An organization that makes a computer or electronic device that is compatible with an existing machine. modules integrated into the rear of the shelf. In addition, the Triple Density Frame utilizes high-density DIS-3020 digital interface shelves with DTI-2000 LP or DTI-3000 T digital trunk interface cards, MP-8 microprocessor cards and PS-2060 power supplies. Due to greater power efficiency, the PS-2060 power supplies offer enough power to allow supplementary features in the future.
In addition to being totally compatible, the DIF-3060-3HD frame simplifies field configuration by providing universal shelf design to reduce maintenance, lower cost and prevent system downtime. The product allows selection of AMI, B7S or B8ZS (Binary 8 Zeros Substitution) An encoding method in T1 and E1 transmission that substitutes a special bit pattern for 8 consecutive zeros in order to maintain ones density. See ones density. Line Coding, as well as superframe (SF) and extended superframe In telecommunication, an Extended Super Frame (ESF) is a T1 framing standard, sometimes called D5 framing, invented in the 1980s. It is preferred to its predecessor, Super Frame, because it includes a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) and bandwidth for a data link channel (used (ESF (1) (Extended SuperFrame) An enhanced T1 format that allows a line to be monitored during normal operation. It uses 24 frames grouped together (instead of the 12-frame D4 superframe) and provides room for CRC bits and other diagnostic commands. ) capabilities. In addition, the DIF-3060-3HD provides 64 kb/s clear channel capability for data applications.
Features and benefits of the DIF-3060-3HD:
-- Expanded capacity for DEX and EMX frames saves 67% of floor space -- SF or ESF formats and AMI, B7S or B8ZS line coding allows customization for additional network configurations -- Integrated tone detection and echo cancellation improves call quality and cuts cost -- Improved power supply design and low-power devices reduce power consumption by 67% to cut utility costs -- Universal shelf design reduces cabling and simplifies field configurations to lower labor and maintenance cost -- Total compatibility with existing trunk frames and cards prolongs equipment life by 3 to 5 years to reduce life-cycle cost -- Latest design with fewer components improves reliability and quality -- Compatibility with DEX and EMX switching systems reduces inventory and frees up valuable floor space
Availability and Cost:
The DIF-3060-3HD is available immediately with a variety of configuration options to support various applications. Product price is $75 to $85 per port depending on options purchased. The DIF-3060-3HD price saves as much as 25 to 30 percent compared to other DGI frames and saves substantially more on competing frames.
