RAD ASMi-54 SHDSL.bis Modem
• 2/4/8-wire managed modem
with full-duplex data rates
of up to 5.7 Mbps over 2-wire and 22
Mbps over 8-wire lines
• SHDSL bonding per IEEE802.3ah and ITU-T G.991.2
• SHDSL ITU-T G.991.2 and ETSI 101524 compliance
• 4-port 10/100BaseT interface with integrated switch
ASMi-54 is a simple, cost-effective, dedicated managed G.SHDSL.bis
modem that extends the range of high-speed
services over existing copper pairs. The modem is used for
point-to-point Ethernet service extension at rates of up
to 22 Mbps using bonding technology, Using TC-PAM 16 or TC-PAM
32 line coding SHDSL.bis technology, the modem can
operate in full-duplex mode over 2-wire lines at data rates of up to
line can either adapt its rate to the condition of the line (noise,
loop attenuation, etc.) or can operate at a
fixed rate as selected by the user. ASMi-54 can operate as a CO
device or a CPE device according to user configuration.
EFM bonding ensures that a failure or addition of a link does not
drop the traffic being transmitted over the other wires in the
group, nor is the capacity of the group decreased when a new link is
added at a lower rate.
ASMi-54 supports up to four Ethernet 10/100BaseT ports with
half/full-duplex autonegotiation and flow control. Fault propagation
enables the unit to shut down the Ethernet user port when an SHDSL
line failure is detected. For LAN-to-
LAN connectivity, the modem supports a built-in 10/100BaseT switch
and VLAN transparent support.
Quality of Service
The 802.1D, DSCP, and Per Port priority schemes allow users to
define different QoS levels according to application requirements.
QoS prioritizes the LAN packet towards the DSL line according to
four levels of priority. The user can activate or deactivate the
priority mechanism, and each priority (VLAN priority, DSCP or per
port) can be configured and mapped to one of four priority queues.
The ASMi-54 unit can be managed using the following connections:
• Local RS-232 terminal
• Telnet server, SNMP (Ver.1)
• Web server (ConfiguRAD)
• Inband management with or without dedicated VLAN.
The ASMi-54 2-wire and 4-wire devices are supplied in plastic
enclosures while the 8-wire device is supplied in a metal enclosure.
A metal rail mount enclosure is available for 2-wire and 4-wire
devices. All are standalone modems that can also be mounted as one
or two units in a 19-inch rack using RAD’s optional rack mount kits
The plastic and metal enclosures are also available in extended
temperature versions (by special request).
