LARS Left Add, Right Subtract (artillery fire sighting) ) today introduced a V.35/RS449 high-speed serial port option for its Access-T45 DS3 Network Service Unit.
It allows service providers and enterprise users to integrate legacy equipment such as low-end routers and switches into their networks. Using the Access-T45 with its new data port, customers can ramp up Ramp Up

A company might 'ramp up' operations if they just signed a contract creating substantially more demand for their product.

It is often used to connect one or more LAN routers and network devices to a T3 line, which provides 44.736 Mbps. port. In particular, this solution is ideal for remote locations requiring a hub-and-spoke architecture using Larscom's Orion 4000 broadband access See broadband and wireless broadband. multiplexer with its recently announced T3Clear modules as the hub.
"With the Internet creating skyrocketing bandwidth requirements Bandwidth requirements (communications)
The channel bandwidths needed to transmit various types of signals, using various processing schemes. Every signal observed in practice can be expressed as a sum (discrete or over a frequency continuum) of sinusoidal , the ability to be able to upgrade to higher-speed connections such as T3 and fractional T3 has become critical," noted Curtis Price Sir Curtis Price, KBE, is the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music and a professor of music at the University of London. In 2005, Professor Price was made an honorary Knight Commander of the British Empire (KBE) in recognition of his services to music. , Research Manager, IDC. "Larscom's enhancement to its Access-T45 will allow users to easily integrate key legacy equipment into their broadband networks, and therefore protect the investment in their existing infrastructure. I believe this additional port option will especially appeal to the Internet Service Providers Internet service provider (ISP)
Company that provides Internet connections and services to individuals and organizations. For a monthly fee, ISPs provide computer users with a connection to their site (see data transmission), as well as a log-in name and password. who are busily ramping up data rates throughout their networks."
Larscom's Access-T45 allows one or two high-speed devices such as routers, video codecs, switches, and front-end processors to access the 45 Mbps bandwidth of a DS3 (T3) connection in increments of 3.2 Mbps. The new V.35/RS449 data port increases the customer's broadband options in a couple of attractive ways. The Access-T45 can be connected to a high-speed device via V.35/RS449 to access fractional T3 bandwidth up to 12.6 Mbps, and have an easy migration path to higher bandwidths (up to 44.2 Mbps) by switching to a HSSI connection. Or, if the user is already employing a HSSI connection at less than 44.2 Mbps, the unused portion of the DS3 bandwidth can be allocated to a lower-speed device by employing a V.35/RS449 interface.
"This enhancement to Access-T45 is an important part of our continuing commitment to broadband access solutions," said Peter Prichard, Director of Broadband Product Management for Larscom. "While HSSI ports are a standard solution for high-speed devices at or near DS3 bandwidth (45 Mbps), our customers have told us they also need a cost effective solution for using Access-T45 with V.35/RS449 devices for data rates to around 12 Mbps."
Access-T45 features advanced performance monitoring and diagnostics with built-in bit error rate test capability, thus eliminating the need for expensive test equipment. Multiple management options include an integral SNMP agent. Access-T45 is priced at $6,950 for either the HSSI/V.35 or the dual HSSI version.
