Fourteen different interface card options for networks using analog circuits, T3/E3 circuits, dry contacts, C37.94, etc.
As Power Utilities continue to integrate legacy applications into their Ethernet/IP substation communication backbone networks, they are increasingly using TDMoIP instead of traditional TDM-based solutions for latency sensitive applications such as teleprotection.
After extensive testing, the TC3846-1 G.703/64K-to-Ethernet card, offered on TC Communication’s JumboSwitch® MSEP, emerged as the solid choice for a large Canadian Power Transmission Utility, needing teleprotection communcations in it's MPLS Network.
Because of lower cost Ethernet/IP alternatives like the JumboSwitch, the tradition of Power Utilities in South America using SDH/SONET systems for their substation communications networks is changing.
The JumboSwitch MoIP Gateway provided solutions for the Des Moines Public School district for two network issues that needed immediate attention - cutting monthly costs and providing improved paging system, emergency phone, and alarm access.
Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative (NIPCO) has successfully taken advantage of both SONET and Ethernet technologies strengths, by recently simplifying its network by putting most of its Ethernet traffic on a common platform using TC Communication’s JumboSwitch® Multi-Service Ethernet Switch.
Troy University turned to the JumboSwitch product for two reasons: to find a more efficient way to extend the Ethernet switch fabric through the microwave links and deploy rugged, industrial grade hardware to withstand potential harsh environmental conditions at some microwave sites.
As part of its Services Expansion Project, the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (Metrolink) needed to upgrade its communications and signaling network to meet the demands of increased ridership.
A Midwest Power Utility needed to upgrade its communications network to transport various data and voice core substation applications to remote sites. It also wanted to consolidate AMR, teleprotection and telecommunication applications onto one common IP platform with transparent “on and off ramps.”
A Midwest communications company specializing in 2-way Radio Systems needed to create a communications link to transport Ethernet, Analog (Analog over Ethernet) and Dry Contact Channels between a county dispatch center and a police department radio control center.
The JumboSwitch installation provided a reliable and durable local communications network between two separate installations that were using three MPTTs up to 2,000 feet apart.
A military Battle Group needed to extend its Defense Switched Network* (DSN) phone service between a Central Command Center (CCC) and 17 adjacent communications sites located in trailers in the field.
The JumboSwitch provided a “one box” solution to link the three dam sites. It allowed for separate converter modules for RS232 over Ethernet and telephone over Ethernet applications.
The DOT chose the JumboSwitch Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Modular Switch from TC Communications because it offered modularity, expandability and telephony on a single industrial grade Ethernet/IP platform.
NIPCO needed to add more resources to its core telecommunications business. They were looking for a solution that would integrate and Ethernet network into the telecommunications side of their business.
Jumboswitch provided Jamaica with a redundant high-speed communications network that would ensure 100% SCADA visibility into all 69kV and 138kV substations and provisioned redundant teleprotection communications.
