TSU ACE (2nd Gen) - T1 DSU/CSU - 1202295L1


The ADTRAN® TSU ACE™ is a low cost, full-featured T1/FT1 Data Service/ Channel Service Unit (DSU/CSU). The TSU ACE provides an interface between T1 or Fractional T1 service and the end user’s Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) for applications such as LAN-to-LAN bridging, Frame Relay circuit termination and video-conferencing. The TSU ACE provides access to traditional dedicated point-to-point T1 services as well as network termination for Frame Relay. Housed in a compact, durable plastic housing the TSU ACE supports synchronous data rates from 56 kbps to 1.536 Mbps at Nx56 or Nx64 kbps. A single V.35 physical interface provides a connection to the end user’s DTE equipment. For configuration and testing, the TSU ACE provides the capability for remote control from a host TSU through the T1 FDL channel. If the FDL channel is unavailable, the host TSU can use 8 kbps of the data traffic to provide configuration and control of the remote TSU ACE. The in-band control channel is used on an as-needed basis and is automatically controlled by the host TSU.

Configuration, testing, and diagnostics

The TSU ACE responds to standard local and remote loopback commands from the telephone company central office. In addition, the user has several built-in test capabilities including V.54 remote loopback and 511 BERT test patterns. Complete configuration and performance data is available from the front panel keypad and two-line by 16 character LCD display. The ADTRAN TSU ACE desktop unit also provides integrated keyholes in the bottom housing for wall mount applications or can be rack-mounted using ADTRAN’s custom-designed 19” shelves. ADTRAN provides several T1 DSU/CSUs for a variety of customer applications. Additional products in the TSU family include the TSU LT™, TSU ESP™, TSU 100™, TSU 120™, TDU 120™, and the TSU 600™. These T1/FT1
