HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 11, 2001

ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN) the market leader in Enterprise Integrated Access Devices (IADs) today announced a new T1 inverse multiplexer (IMUX) product for high-speed LAN-to-LAN connectivity. The ATLAS 550 NxT1 HSSI Module combines multiple T1 circuits into a single logical data stream through its integral High-Speed Serial Interface (HSSI) port. This hot-swappable module uses an ADTRAN proprietary protocol to support point-to-point, high-speed data applications.

"This product not only adds T1 IMUX functionality to the ATLAS 550, it also puts us a step ahead of the competition by including this functionality in a multi-function device," said Tim Saunders, ADTRAN vice president of product management, Enterprise Networks Division. "Where most competitors offer a single-function product, the ATLAS 550 offers additional functionality while providing a major cost advantage."

The NxT1 HSSI module is designed for high-speed point-to-point data transmission typically used to extend two LANs across a wide area circuit. The module can inversely multiplex up to eight T1s and can automatically adjust the data rate to the HSSI port based on the number of T1 circuits. The module itself includes four T1 interface ports and additional T1 ports may be added using other ATLAS 550 T1 modules. Use of the NxT1 HSSI module in the ATLAS 550 does not impact other IAD applications it supports such as T1, ISDN, or Frame Relay.


The ATLAS 550 is an IAD designed to improve the performance and lower the costs of Voice, Data, Video, and Internet communications for both enterprise businesses and network service providers. With the ATLAS 550, many WAN functions can now be merged and combined into a small, economical, modular platform that will replace a rack of traditional single-function access devices. With the ATLAS 550, traditional multiplexed and packet networks are easier to deploy and manage while providing more bandwidth efficiency out of existing or new communications links. The ATLAS 550 provides a new level of communications flexibility by offering many of the features previously found in larger central office, PBX, or router equipment.

The ATLAS 550 chassis includes a high-speed multi-protocol backplane and six modular expansion slots: two network interface slots and four user interface slots. A wide range of hot-swappable, industry standard modules are also available to effectively converge your telecommunications and your existing network systems such as routers, PBX, key systems, video conferencing equipment, remote access servers, LANS, faxes, and telephones.

The ATLAS 550 NxT1 HSSI Module has a list price of $1,995 and will be available in November.
