GENERAL:


The MDC-3661 takes a 2048 kb/s G.703 (E1) signal and packs it as private data into a DVB compliant, 188 or 204 byte (selectable), ASI transport stream. On board switch settings set the ASI program number to a choice of 8 settings. This allows it to pass through ASI style of circuits such IRT's ASI Mux/DeMux and fibre modules as well as ASI statistical multiplexers.

The MDC-3661 will also simultaneously decode an appropriate ASI input into 2048 kb/s G.703 (E1).

In the absence of an ASI input, the G.703 output is AIS (Alarm Indication Signal). In the absence of a valid G.703 input, AIS is packed into a 188 or 204 byte (selectable) ASI transport stream.

For the G.703 input, front panel LEDs indicate if a G.703 input is present and if it is AIS. For the ASI input, front panel LEDs indicate if the ASI is present, if the ASI is at the correct input rate, if there is a sync error, or if the program number of input signal is missing or does not match the on board switch setting.

External relay contact alarms also are available on the rear connector assembly.

The MDC-3661 is suitable for mounting in all IRT's standard 1RU and 3RU frames.
