Product Overview


The PM8318 TEMAP 168 is a high density T1/E1 framer with integrated VT/TU mappers and M13 multiplexers. This feature-rich device is ideally suited for applications performing high-density transport or termination of channelized DS3 or unchannelized DS3, E3, T1, or E1 over existing SONET/SDH facilities.

  • Processes 168 T1s/126 E1s or half of an STS-12/STM-4.
  • Integrates SONET/SDH and DS3/E3 functionality as well as 168 T1/126 E1 bidirectional PMON-capable transceivers.
  • SONET/SDH functions include high order path processing, low order path processing, T1/E1 to VT/TU mapping, and DS3/E3 to AU-3/TU-3 mapping.
  • DS3/E3 functions include six DS3/E3 bidirectional PMON-capable transceivers and six M13 multiplexers.
  • Typical Applications include:

  • High Density T1/E1/DS3/EC1 line cards.
  • Ported or Portless TransMux cards.
  • Integrated Test Access on Fabric cards.
