SINGAPORE – June 15, 2004 – CarrierComm, a leading provider of point-to-point voice and data transmission technology, is premiering its innovative Software Defined IDU TM (Indoor Unit) at CommunicAsia 2004. Offering OEMs and network integrators a flexible platform for implementing their Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) applications, the Software Defined IDU TM reduces development and inventory costs, and enables quick time to market.
“Next-generation wireless telecommunications systems must deliver advanced technology and also must reduce carrier’s capital and operating expenditures”, said Jamal Hamdani, CEO of CarrierComm. “The Software Defined IDU addresses the needs of the carriers for low cost PDH solutions and provides a way to provide future SDH IP capability through software upgrade while preserving original capital investments and minimizing inventory and spacing requirements.”
The Software Defined IDU is a flexible, low-cost, feature-rich IDU solution. It incorporates a unique, single-chip ASIC modem featuring integrated FEC with selectable coding rates. Modulation and data throughput rates are BPSK – 256 QAM and DC-311 Mbps respectively, (BPSK-256 QAM and DC-622 Mbps with the SDH option). Standard interfaces include 16 x T1/E1 and 100 BaseTX Ethernet. Plug-in options allow for DS3/E3/STS1, STM1, or 2xSTM1. The IDU also incorporates digital filtering for the various data bandwidths. The IDU is designed to support drop and insert or protected configuration in the same chassis.
