HT COMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCES HIGH-SPEED VOICE/DATA MULTIPLEXERS

 SAN DIEGO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- HT Communications used the arena of the 1993 Tele-Communications Association conference and exhibit to launch its Series T3000 T1 Channel Bank Systems, a line of high-speed voice/data multiplexers. The units aggregate up to 24 voice and modem lines onto a single T1 speed (1.544Mbps) trunk for transmission to a long distance carrier or remote business site, or up to 48 inputs onto two T1s.
 Series T3000 architecture features a midplane design where plug-in modules come in pairs. For example, four 64Kbps voice channels on a single "front" card can be matched with any of several "rear" cards for interfacing different telephone signaling systems. The design results in greater modularity without a sacrifice in compactness.
 Up to 48 input channels and two T1 trunks fit into a single 7-inch rack shelf or table-top enclosure. This is thought to be unique to HT's architecture.
 Single-unit pricing begins at under $8,000 for a 24-channel, single- trunk unit. Deliveries require 30 days ARO.
 The Series T3000 T1 Channel Bank Systems are being announced concurrently with HT Communication's Series T4000 T1 Multiplexer Systems. With the joint introduction, HT is expanding into the T1 speed range for the first time. The company's previous products include single-card PC/DSUs, conventional DSUs, high speed modems and multiplexers operating at 128Kbps or below.
 HT Communications Announces Intelligent High-Speed Multiplexers
 At the 1993 Tele-Communications Association conference and exhibit in San Diego today, HT Communications introduced a line of intelligent high-speed digital multiplexers. Called the Series T4000, the units combine voice, data, fax, compressed video and other analog and digital traffic onto T1 speed (1.544Mbps) lines for transmission to local/long distance communications carriers or to remote business sites.
 Series T4000 multiplexers will enable their users to save on communications line costs by taking advantage of integrated T1 access services from carriers, or to form private networks using the T4000s as nodes. HT claims that users frequently will be able to recover the costs of the hardware through line-sharing savings alone within six months.
 Each T4000 subsystem can provide 24 input channels to one or two T1 trunks, and two such subsystems can be housed in a single 7-inch-high chassis. This is thought to be unique to HT's architecture.
 T4000s also can become drop-and-insert nodes in private networks, allowing users to transmit to and receive from multiple remote sites simultaneously. The units are operated under software control using menu-driven screens. They support multilevel password protection, remote configuration and diagnosis, and remote management.
 The multiplexers employ an architecture which features a midplane design where plug-in modules come in pairs. The "front" card of each pair provides the user channel(s), and the "rear" card interfaces with the specific transmission service being used. The result is greater flexibility without a loss in compactness.
 Single-unit pricing begins at $5,295 for a T4000 with a single T1 trunk. Deliveries are 30 days ARO.
 The Series T4000 T1 Multiplexer Systems are being announced in conjunction with HT Communications' Series T3000 T1 Channel Bank Systems. With this joint announcement HT is expanding into the T1 speed range for the first time. The company's previous products include single-card PC/DSUs, conventional DSUs, high speed modems, and multiplexers operating at 128Kbps or below. These earlier products are compatible with Series T4000 systems, and can be used in conjunction with the T1 products to provide users a broad range of input options.
