23GHz Microwave Radio System
10Mbps Ethernet LAN plus 1.544 Mbps T1
.5 mile (800m) to 10 miles (16km)


he Series 950 LAN+T1 Microwave Radio System is a low cost, high bandwidth, radio system capable of simultaneously transporting full bandwidth LAN traffic and T1 telephony up to 10 miles with appropriate antennas. The radio system offers the following features:

The Ethernet interface of the radio system supports all 802.3 protocols and includes an AUI connection to network devices and BNC connections to the microwave unit. The T1 data interface of the radio system supports Bell Standard 100 ohm, two-wire twisted pair designed to connect to telephony and multimedia interfaces. No on-site programming is required and no additional test equipment is needed.

The Series 950 LAN+T1 system provides point-to-point connections for hubs, bridges, routers and repeaters allowing full 10 Mbps Ethernet connectivity. The 950 LAN+T1 interface has been designed to connect directly to standard T1 PBX's, Channel Banks or Telecom Multiplexers without the need for additional equipment. The 950 LAN+T1 also supports full duplex Ethernet LAN operation (20 Mbps) allowing connection to full duplex devices such as Ethernet switches and adapters. Multiplexed LAN and MULTIPLE T1 access is also available for telephony and multimedia applications.

The Series 950 LAN+T1 is designed for rapid installation and alignment without special tools or test equipment. Rugged, modular radio design for ease of service and field support for years of trouble free operation in harsh weather conditions.
