TDM network

A network that transmits data in dedicated end-to-end circuits comprising 64 Kbps digital channels. TDM networks evolved from the analog voice networks of the telephone companies. They are widely used for digitized voice and data in the form of digital signal (DS) circuits made up of T1, E1 and OC-1 lines and multiples thereof (see DS). See TDM. Contrast with packet network.

Conventional TDM networks are highly deterministic.
Under this scenario, which we feel applies best to the situation in Europe, cellular operators are working to limit VoIP's impact on the mobile network, in a bid to amortise their TDM networks and the cost of their 3G licences.
Leveraging advances in silicon, optics and software, Terawave developed a product family that provides the scalability, flexibility and economics that service providers require to deliver optical services over ATM, IP and TDM network infrastructures.
All of the solutions were reportedly designed to integrate seamlessly with third-party OEM equipment in the existing Ameren Illinois TDM network.
Service providers want a level of interaction between the IP network and their core operations support system (OSS) to provide ongoing monitoring information comparable to what can be received in the TDM network. This interaction should cover the following areas:
The head-end solution includes a dedicated pseudo-wire CES aggregator based on Resolute module technology, and is designed to minimize rack space and power consumption, while supporting scalability through a range of aggregation density options for handoff of T1/E1 traffic to the carrier TDM network.
A typical telecom network offering is based around traffic management of bandwidth over its TDM network (either SONET or SDH).
The company is building a next generation VoIP and TDM network based on carrier class technologies from Cisco Systems and Microsoft.
"Why make costly infrastructure upgrades when you can use today's TDM network to deliver tomorrow's high-speed services?"
Deploying the CSA 9000 will minimize rack space and power consumption, while supporting scalability through a range of aggregation density options for handoff of T1/E1 traffic to the carrier TDM network. The solution utilizes the ARRIS Touchstone Commercial Services Modem (CSM470) with 1 T1/E1 port, in addition to a standard 10/100BaseT Ethernet port.
Traffic could enter from the WAN on a TDM network but be destined for an IP customer.
