Allied Telesis – iMAPs


As the world’s communications systems move to an all IP and Ethernet access network with IP/MPLS core, the Allied Telesis iMAP represents the first and only true IP access platform designed for this purpose. Its unique carrier-grade IP/Ethernet capabilities are suitable for any provider building an IP access network. Industry-leading capabilities position the iMAP as the access network for alternative and emerging carriers, Independent Operating Companies (IOCs), PTTs, ILECs, ISPs, public utilities, and private organizations such as hospitals, hotels, and Multi-Tenant Units/Multi-Dwelling Units (MTU/MDU).

One Access Platform, Any Service

The iMAP product family is designed to support IP Triple Play services using Ethernet technology. With redundant Gigabit Ethernet connections or 10 Gigabits on the iMAP 9810 to each line card from the control modules, there is ample bandwidth and throughput for all current and future services and access technologies. The central fabric control cards enable multiple 10 Gigabit uplink and transport capability, ensuring future capacity and performance needs are addressed without requiring a major hardware upgrade.

Multiple Services, Diversified and Increased Revenues

In addition to traditional and enhanced ADSL/ADSL2+ and VDSL2, the iMAP provides the capability to offer revenue-generating residential and business services such as FTTx, T1/E1, G.SHDSL, and POTS — all from the same platform. With features like Ethernet Protection Switched Rings, iMAPs can be networked together with full redundancy and sub-50ms switchover times, ensuring carrier-grade 99.999% availability and maximum uptime.
