This is additional growth and did not include 127,693 telephone lines that were generated by virtue of migration from Time-division multiplexing (TDM) to Next Generation Network (NGN).
Additionally, the product can now be deployed to other underlying platforms, such as IP-based infrastructure and IP-PBXs, allowing companies with an existing IP infrastructure already in place to transition to a VoIP solution with all of the queuing, routing and reporting features found in the FirstPoint Enterprise product operating on a time-division multiplexing (TDM) infrastructure.
EDGE, or Enhanced Data GSM Environment, is built on existing GSM/GPRS networks, using the same time-division multiple access (TDMA) frame structure.
A fourth element is the integration of VoIP monitoring with the monitoring of traditional time-division multiplexing (TDM) communications.
Since it contains a separate on-chip Communications Processor Module (CPM), the MSC8101 easily interfaces to Time-Division Multiplexed (TDM) highways, Ethernet, and Asynchronous Transfer mode (ATM) backbones.
According to the company, Cisco EGW 2200 Enterprise Gateway can facilitate phased migration from time-division multiplexing (TDM) private branch exchange (PBX) networks to converged Cisco IP telephony and IP communications solutions.
These IMA chips support an extensive range of DSL services by combining ATM-to-TDM (time-division multiplex) throughput rates with flexible, per-port bandwidth provisioning options.
They pay particular attention to new protocols based on the needs of the Wideband Code Division Multiple Access air interface, including both Frequency- and Time-Division Duplex modes.
It provides next-generation SONET capabilities and serves as an integrated Ethernet over SONET metro access multiplexer that enables service providers to cost-effectively migrate from existing TDM (time-division multiplexed) networks to data-aware packet networks.
MULTIFUNCTION, MULTISERVICE ACCESS PLATFORM features a new FXS interface card that enables voice channels to be connected directly to the unit's time-division multiplexed bus.
(The upstream limitation has more to do with the battery power required to deliver more bits per symbol as the data rates go up.) flash-OFDM can be likened to putting time-division multiple access on top of OFDM, yielding all the benefits of both technologies in terms of robustness under mobility and channel-delay spreads, interference averaging from other cells, and orthogonality inside the cell.
