Passive T1/E1 Tap
ImageStream's T1/E1 tap makes it
possible to passively monitor two full duplex T1 or
E1 circuits. A custom-built tap cable is used to connect
the T1/E1 tap to one of ImageStream's 4-port or 8-port
T1 or E1 monitoring cards. Each full duplex T1 or E1
data circuit carries two independent data streams. This
means that two data circuits represent a total of four
data streams that need to be monitored. Consequently,
each 4-port card can monitor one tap with two T1 or
E1 circuits, and each 8-port card can monitor two taps
with a total of four T1 or E1 circuits.
The tap provides four RJ48 jacks and four bantam jacks
for data signal input and pass-through. The RJ48 jacks
are used to connect standard UTP data circuit cabling,
while the bantam jacks are used to connect data signals
from a bantam patch panel. A DIP switch on the tap is
used to switch between the RJ48 and bantam jack connectors.
The tap cable is used to connect the DB25 tap connector
to the DB26HD conector on the monitor card. In addition
to carrying four data streams from the tapped circuits
to the monitor card, the tap cable also provides power
to the tap.
The tap includes a DIP switch that is used to switch
between T1 and E1 operation. In addition, the tap provides
a power LED that lights when the tap is powered, and
a loopback LED that shows when the tap is in internal
or external loopback.
Like all truly passive taps, ImageStream's passive T1-E1
tap provides transparent data circuit pass-through that
is not interrupted when the monitor station is powered
down or disconnected. This means that many taps can
be installed, and monitored only when needed by connecting
a portable monitoring station.
