In an all-indoor configuration, Aviat Networks’ Eclipse Packet Node platform has delivered flexibility to Tooele County, Utah, to transition its partially mountainous, rural legacy TDM network to IP when the traffic demands it. When greater functionality is required, the modular nature of the platform is called upon to ease installation and maintenance.
“The entire design is highly modular, and we are able to drop in new network cards with the latest technology. We just swap new cards for old,” says Dave Williams, communications manager for Tooele County. “So not only does Eclipse Packet Node provide native TDM support for our latency-sensitive, mission-critical traffic today but also allows us the flexibility to migrate to native all-IP traffic as our applications evolve. With this platform, we get the best of both worlds.”
