The XMP1 system family

XMP1 is a modular multi-service access system, designed for usage in dedicated networks. It has a variety of interfaces for providing voice services (e.g. E&M, ISDN telephony), data services (e.g. E1, V/X), Ethernet, video and teleprotection (implementation of C37.94 protocol).

The services can be transmitted via an SDH-/PDH network and/or SHDSL paths. The XMP1 is exceptional for its high level of availability, support of different protection switches and low processing times. As a result, it is ideal for usage in networks where mission-critical data has to be transmitted. Due to different subracks with 1, 8, 16 and 32 slots, it is a flexible and cost-effective response to the most varied of demands.

SOX (Service on XMP1) is the network management system for the XMP1. SOX allows user-friendly configuration and monitoring of the whole XMP1 network. SOX provides additional protection functions that further enhance the availability of the network.

The XMP1 is typically used in public transport and railway companies in transmitting data for: public address systems, emergency call installations, signalling and control systems, access controls, company telephony, train tracking, binary contacts, axle counters, alarm systems and monitoring electrical substation.

With XMP1-LCC a high performance cross connect multiplexer is available as further member of the XMP1 family.
