The MASTERseries solution
TM Service Module series from Carrier Access is your
solution for T1 backhaul and access networking needs. The MASTERseries
modules minimize the total cost of backhaul networks by reducing leased
circuit costs as
well as maintenance costs of the network; the MASTERseries’ highly reliable
superior lightning protection, and Automatic Protection Switching features
allow you to
maximize billed minutes and substantially improve service quality; and the
MASTERseries platform also supports rapid deployment of new sites and
it a complete solution for cell and hub site networking for wireless
Next-generation backhaul networks
Carrier Access has been delivering solutions for carriers since 1992, and
platform — designed for critical applications — is the answer for backhaul
At the cell site, MASTERseries handles all integrated access needs —
analog and digital base stations, E911/location devices, fraud radios, and
data devices — in
a single, highly reliable platform. The integrated CSU/DSUs and DCS, plus
router, and Ethernet hub functionality eliminate the need for separate
pieces of equipment.
With the FLEXmaster modules, MASTERseries provides full LAN access to cell
devices for technicians or IP management. When a future upgrade is required
based ATM transport, MASTERseries supports a seamless integration.
In the narrowband Radio Access Network (RAN), MASTERseries grooms remote
traffic onto full T1 circuits for the most efficient networking. This
optimal system is
created by Automatic Protection Switching providing security for critical
point and Drop & Insert topologies that are deployed quickly and easily; and
MASTERseries’ remote management and BERT diminishing the need for
visit distant sites to diagnose and correct trouble conditions.
platform uses a passive mid-plane architecture for superior flexibility.
Each module consists of a front-mounted processing FLEXengine and a rear
mounted interface adapter module. Different application modules add specific
capabilities, such as TDM, ATM inverse multiplexing, or DS3 ATM access which
are available across the full system. Operators have the ability to mix and
match various modules to create systems fully tailored to their needs.
