Larscom introduces T3Clear data access module for Orion 4000; T3Clear lets voice and ATM ride for free on a DS3.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 28, 1997--Larscom Incorporated (NASDAQ:LARS) today introduced its latest addition to the company's Orion 4000 Broadband Access Multiplexer.

The T3Clear module is currently the only WAN access solution on the market that can transport data, voice and ATM over a single clear channel DS3 circuit. High speed router or video traffic, inverse multiplexed cellstreams from an ATM switch, and T1s from a PBX can be simultaneously combined into one DS3 circuit for cost-effective communications.

"With the Internet as a driving force, we see dramatic increases in network traffic for corporate enterprises and network service providers," commented John Coons, director and principal analyst, networking industry service at Dataquest. "The move to bigger pipelines such as T3 can have a considerable impact on network cost structures and flexibility. Given this situation, we believe there is a significant need for solutions that allow companies and carriers to cost-effectively maximize network bandwidth by combining different types of traffic, such as voice, data and ATM, over a single network connection."

The T3Clear module provides two high speed data ports for connection to routers, video codecs, switches, and other customer premise equipment. T1 traffic may be added from other Orion 4000 modules, including Larscom's recently announced ATM inverse multiplexer, the IMUX-A45. The resulting high speed datastream is sent across a clear channel DS3 circuit which provides a "fat pipe" for high bandwidth applications, including Internet access. Combined with Larscom's Access-T45 DS3 Network Service Unit, T3Clear becomes a high density hub-and-spoke data transport solution for carriers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

"T3Clear helps network service providers and corporate users maximize the use of DS3 bandwidth in point-to-point and hub-and-spoke network topologies," said Robin Langdon, Senior Product Manager for broadband products at Larscom. "Where communications requirements justify the use of DS3 WAN circuits, T3Clear allows voice and even ATM traffic to hitch a free ride in leftover bandwidth. Where data does not justify a DS3 circuit by itself, the addition of voice and ATM to the equation can make DS3 the most cost-effective choice."

Available now, the T3Clear module has a list price of $6,950. The Orion 4000 broadband access multiplexer system starts at $6,550.
