TMS-3000 Transport Management System

TMS 3000

The TMS-3000 system transports today's vital data and voice communications over a single, private homogeneous network. This unparalleled security and flexibility allows network planners to provision the constantly evolving private and public voice and data services to nodal and remote sites anywhere in the network. For network applications that require full period availability with low/fixed delay, the TMS-3000 delivers high efficiency and circuit multiplexing, circuit routing, and standards-based access and termination. With all services delivered across wide areas by standard circuit switching techniques, network planners achieve the most efficient use of bandwidth, equipment, space, and human resources.

TMS-3000 allows users to accomplish virtually any networking objective efficiently and economically. Complete flexibility provides for ease of upgrade to accommodate future requirements.

TMS-3000 HighlightsTMS-3000 Highlights

  • Global digital connectivity - narrowband, wideband, fractional and hybrid access
  • Can be used to compress hundreds of voice channels over sub-T1/ E1 links for economic provisioning over circuits.

  • Aggregate rates to 4.224 Mbps.
  • Flexible network topology and system configurations- point-to-point, delta, mesh or star
  • Supports all leased line (dedicated) interfaces (V.35, 422, 423, T1/D4, G703, etc.).
  • Supports satellite aggregate communications links with minimum delay.
  • Software downloading for non-disruptive updates
  • Compression technology and dynamic bandwidth allocation maximizes bandwidth utilization.
  • Supports redundancy for power provisioning, common logic, and any line interface modules.
  • When equipped with Plus-series cards (ESCC-Plus, ACC-Plus, and UVC-Plus), the TMS-3000 provides heightened capabilities for critical SCADA application networks.
  • When deployed with GDC multiplexers (OCM-2000 or MiniMux TDM), concentrates branch office traffic from hundreds of locations.

  • Software downloading for non-disruptive updates

OCM-1000/2000-Office Communications Manager

The OCM-1000 and OCM-2000 are powerful, cost-effective TDM networking platforms. The OCM-1000 provides point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connectivity to small and medium sized branch sites. The OCM-2000 extends the TMS-3000 backbone network's capabilities to remote branch office locations. Both OCM platforms offer connectivity to a variety of digital carrier services, allowing users to select the one with the best performance/cost ratio in each location. They use the same bandwidth optimization techniques as the TMS-3000 to efficiently transport voice and data traffic.

OCM Highlights

  • Support for a variety of digital services ensures easy implementation of global networks
  • Integration of both traditional voice and data and LAN to WAN internetworking, video conferencing and imaging over common digital facilities
  • Multi-aggregate capability for resilient mesh networks with diverse routing options
  • Configuration and management from a single central-site platform
  • Exceptionally high quality voice compression options
  • Easy migration path from OCM-1000 to OCM-2000

MINIMUX Time Division Multiplexer

GDC's MINIMUX is a software controller, single aggregate, time division multiplexer (TDM) that is ideal for point-to-point links in voice, data, video and local area networks. It is fully compatible with General DataComm's TMS 3000 platform, making it the perfect choice as a feeder mux in larger networks. MINIMUX supports an entire spectrum of aggregate interfaces at rates from 4800 bps to 2.048 Mbps, for maximun applications flexibility. It is also compatible with DS0-channelized public network service offerings (Fractional T1/E1), providing users with vitually unlimited connectvity.

MINIMUX Highlights

  • Self-contained TDM system capable of multiplexing up to six channels of synchronous, isochronous, or asynchronous data, or voice-grade telephone signals. Expands to support 14 channels.
  • Universal voice and data channels for maximum configuration flexibility.
  • Cpmpatible with the entire TMS family of systems for a fully integrated networking solution.
  • Can be deployed in standalone or rackmount packaging.

Network Management

GTS 5.x Platform GTS 5.x Controllers

GDC's GTS 5.1 is a Pentium 4 based platform that is backward compatible and supports all the option cards and modules associated with previous TMS software version GTS 2.2. In addition, GTS 5.1 supports LAN connectivity for Telnet and LAN-based logins and provides SNMP alarm traps.

GTS 6.x Software

General DataComms TMS Software (GTS) Version 6.x is an intuitive network management system that provides end-to- end network configuration, control, alarm reporting, and diagnostics of the TMS-3000 network. The GTS software is installed on the PC-based hardware platform and runs on the Linux operating system with MySQL database software.
GTS software communicates with GDCs TMS-3000, OCM- 2000 and MINIMUX nodes from the backbone network. Up to six controllers can be supported on each network, allowing management functions to be performed at several locations. An Ethernet interface to the TMS network is also supported for LAN-based logins.
GTS maximizes network performance and reliability, assuring user access to the network. Intelligent Automatic Rerouting (IAR) and Disaster Recovery and Reconfiguration (DRR) protect and re-establish communications in the event of line/data center failures.

GTS 6.x Highlights

  • Global digital connectivity - narrowband, wideband, fractional and hybrid access
  • Supports Linux-based operating system with MySQL database on a PC-based hardware platform.

  • Six controllers per network

  • Intelligent Automatic Routing

  • Time of Day Reconfiguration

  • Disaster Recovery Routing

  • Offline modeling

  • Full SNMP V3 sets, gets and traps

  • Total network backup via CDRW/USB

SNMP Support

The GTS software also supports the SNMPv3 compatible GET, SET and TRAP based configuration, alarm reporting, diagnostics, and management interface. Once configured with SNMP host destinations, the controller will transmit all alarms generated at the system, node, device, port, channel, circuit, diagnostic and operator levels. From 8 to 16 OIDs are associated with each alarm, depending on the alarm trap type. All alarm traps provide alarm name, description, associated TMS element, activation time, alarm level (Critical, Major, Minor or Warning), status (Active or Clear) and the alarm clear time.
