360-80 Intelligent Channel Bank (ICB)

 
Extensive Service Offerings

The 360-80 ICB universal enclosure houses up to 4 channel modules (2 full-size, 2 half-size). Channel module selection includes both voice and data interfaces and fulfills requirements for FXS/DPO, FXO/DPT, E&M, OCU, DSU, 64XN, ISDN and Ethernet Networking. The half-size slots accommodate a T1 or E1 controller module and either a secondary controller card, HSDL Adaptor or one half-size channel module.

Real Estate Savings
The 360-80 has integrated common hardware in a very compact 1.75"x17"x12" profile. This handy box can be wall or rack mounted by simply rotating the mounting ears. Its small frame takes up only one rack unit when mounted in a 19" or 23" rack. The unit is temperature hardened, allowing outdoor applications.
 
Intelligent Control
Software now compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 7 – 32 and 64 bit
Remote monitoring is a snap with the 360-80 ICB. The unit can supply maintenance information, card specifics and card settings. Remote provisioning allows card settings to be changed with handy drop-down menus on your PC or using SNMP. Real time alarms do not go unnoticed because the alarms displayed on your PC duplicate the LED alarm, system status and line status information of the ICB.  SNMP management provides trap support for alarm indications.

Replacement for Legacy Channel Banks
Save valuable rack space by replacing old channel banks quickly and easily with the 360-80 ICB

Revenue Generating
A need for fractional T1/E1 is not a problem with this streamlined ICB. Groomed timeslots for fractional T1/E1 allow for split services of voice and data to multiple locations. 2-way drop and insert capabilities generate additional revenue opportunities.

High Reliability
The 360-80 ICB is not dependent on a separate power supply. Power is distributed on the channel modules, eliminating the possibility of a single point of failure. This also eliminates down time if service or maintenance is required. 1:1 protection of controller modules is also available. All cards are hot-swappable for uninterruptible service during maintenance.

Channel Modules for 360-80 ICB
Applications Beyond the Traditional Channel Bank

Base Transceiver Stations

Today, with the strong push to roll out LTE, a tremendous amount of BTS enclosure deployments are taking place. BTS equipment has gotten smaller and more efficient over the years. Charles is positioned to assist these deployments with a line of rugged and compact enclosures for today’s dynamic BTS needs. Various thermal options are available to ensure your equipment is protected and your site is reliable.

SCADA

Monitoring your network has never been this simple!  With support for analog and low speed digital data circuits, the 360-80 offers tremendous flexibility in a compact (1 rack space) platform perfect for SCADA.  The rugged 360-80 can be deployed inside a substation or in an enclosure mounted outdoors helping to ensure the reliability of your network.  

Legacy Channel Bank Replacement

Channel Banks have been deployed at utilities for many years to support a variety of communications. Most of these banks were designed and installed decades ago.  Replacing these banks with the 360-80 will free up space and provide you with a solution that can be remotely monitored and managed.  With support for analog and low speed digital data circuits, the 360-80 offers tremendous flexibility in a compact (1 rack space) platform.
