Channelized STM1 IQ PIC (T640 Router)


Software release


  • One STM1 port

  • Power requirement: 0.39 A @ 48 V (18.6 W)

  • Fine-grained queuing per logical interface

  • Channelization: STM1c, fractional E1, framed and unframed DS0

  • Model number: PB-1CHSTM1-SMIR-QPP

Hardware features

  • Packet buffering, Layer 2 parsing
