Because of its extensive hands-on experience with both SONET and Ethernet, Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative (NIPCO) has successfully taken advantage of each technology’s strengths. Recently, NIPCO simplified its network by putting most of its Ethernet traffic on a common platform by using TC Communication’s JumboSwitch® Multi-Service Ethernet Switch.
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.
Fourteen different interface card options for networks using analog circuits, T3/E3 circuits, dry contacts, C37.94, etc.
TCView allows users to set thresholds and monitor temperature, transmit/receive power and power consumption.
TC Communications training sessions are tailored to meet the customer’s level of expertise and specific application.
