Taking advantage of common copper infrastructure already in place, Patton’s complete set of EFM-compliant solutions avoid the disruption, delay, and expense of installing new CAT5 or fiber-optic cable.
Exploiting installed copper cabling to deliver first-mile/last-mile broadband connectivity, the OnSite 3300 G.SHDSL.bis EFM router bonds up to 4 twisted pairs for symmetrical line rates up to 22.8 Mbps.
Designed to the ITU-T G991.2 and ITU-T G.998.1 (G.bond) specifications, the OS3300 is ideal for carriers, ISPs, and system integrators that want to deliver triple-play services over existing copper cable.
“There’s a lot to love about copper,” said Johnnie Grant, Product Manager. “It’s time-tested, reliable... and totally paid for. Patton’s complete EFM solution set makes legacy copper wire a viable medium for new-generation, high-speed network services.”
The OS3300 now joins an EFM portfolio that also includes:
• Standalone G.SHDSL EFM DSLAM
• High-Density G.SHDSL EFM DSLAM
• G.SHDSL EFM Bridge CPE
• G.SHDSL EFM VoIP IAD with Analog and BRI
• G.SHDSL EFM VoIP IAD with T1/E1/PRI
• G.SHDSL EFM All-IP Session Border Controller
Compliant with the IEEE 802.3 2Base-TL (aka 802.3ah) EFM standard, Patton’s EFM IAD interoperates with any third-party EFM DSLAM—as well as Patton’s ForeFront EFM DSLAM solutions.
The OS3300 is also suitable for wireless backhaul, Metro Ethernet, and LAN-to-LAN extension using the existing copper plant.
In back-to-back installations, the OS3300 offers Patton’s exclusive “high-speed mode,” delivering ultra-fast line rates up to 60 Mbps.
Patton also offers another industry-unique feature: the OS3300 can be upgraded to support 4 to 250 SIP-to-SIP VoIP calls—transforming the device into a session border control IAD.
