Extensive Interface Support
The IP-DSU supports a wide range of interface trunk
types, allowing for flexible installation and the ability to
reuse IP-DSU units as the network evolves.
Smart Network Management
The IP-DSU is easy to manage and provides several easy
ways to configure and get status/diagnostic information.
An industry standard Telnet connection to the IP-DSU
gives you access to a command line based configuration
application. In addition, a serial RS232-C connection gives
you the same configuration capability. Finally, the IP-DSU
is another network element that the StarKeeper® II
NMS can administer, manage, and maintain.
The IP-DSU unit's resident SNMP agent supports a
database of predefined SNMP MIB (Management
Information Base) variables as well as SNMP Trap
operations, Set operations and Get operations.
Field software updates, which can occur from a remote
location, take place while the IP-DSU is in service and
transporting data. As new features and enhancements
come out, you can upgrade the IP-DSU software just by
upgrading to a new software release using an industry
standard Telnet application or serial RS232-C
connection to the IP-DSU.
Networking Solutions for the Future
The IP-DSU reflects cutting edge innovation and
superior quality expected of Lucent Technologies. It's
flexible and affordable. It allows for the building of one
network instead of two. It offers ease of migration and
allows new technologies and traditional products to
coexist on the same network without interrupting
service, thus preserving the original investment.
