The IMX-2 is an inverse multiplexer that splits incoming data between a leased line and an ISDN link, according to mode of operation, line availability and traffic load.
Typical applications for the IMX-2 include leased line backup, dynamic bandwidth allocation and bandwidth-on-demand.
The IMX-2 offers a large choice of interfaces on the network side as well as the data ports. It connects to basic rate ISDN (BRI) switched digital service and supports S and U interfaces, as well as S leased line interface (S0). It also supports one dedicated circuit (leased line) with all popular interfaces: V.35, V.36/RS-422, RS-530 or X.21.
For applications such as videoconferencing that require switched connections, the IMX-2 can act as a smart terminal adapter and call up to two B channels to provide 128 kbps aggregate bandwidth.
The IMX-2 provides command-driven software control of configuration, diagnostics and alarms via a terminal connected to the supervisory port. SNMP over SLIP support is also available.
