Designed for Signaling and Media Applications
The iSPAN 3639 AdvancedMC™ T1/E1/J1 communications controller delivers a comprehensive high-capacity connectivity solution for use with AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA platforms to deliver a wide range of Voice-Over-IP, Wireless and IP Multi-Media Subsystem (IMS) network elements.

High Performance and Capacity
With up to 8 T1/E1/J1 interfaces, the iSPAN 3639 provides a high-capacity solution for signaling and media applications and enables optimization of slot usage. With a high-performance PCI-Express interface to the host processor, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity via the AdvancedMC connector, the iSPAN 3639 enables flexible exchange of payload information and is hence ideal for a broad spectrum of applications requiring T1/E1/J1 connectivity.

Powerful Solution Architecture
The iSPAN 3639 incorporates the Freescale PowerQUICC III™ communications controller to deliver high-performance and high-capacity processing of signaling traffic. With the addition of an optional FPGA-based support for I-TDM protocol conversion and TDM switching (future), the 3639 can be used for full capacity media termination and media switching applications.
