CBM IP-MPA  (IP Multi-Protocol Adapter)

"The King of All IP Mediation"

The only NEBS Level 3 Certified

Single Port Migration/Protocol Conversion Adapter available anywhere!


The CBM IP-MPA, a single port multiple protocol conversion/mediation device, provides seamless inter-networking of dissimilar network devices and allows for individual mediation of legacy connections to IP based networking infrastructure. Because it's so functionally rich, and extremely cost effective, the CBM IP-MPA provides powerful, yet inexpensive, single port mediation for any legacy network connection in the Central Office. Its simple design allows for quick installation anywhere in the CO.

The serial port is synchronous or asynchronous and supports speeds up to 115.2kbps. Popular protocols such as asynchronous, HDLC, SDLC, and X.25 are all supported interchangeable on a per-port basis.

In addition, vertical services typically found on Embedded Network processors have been incorporated into the IP-MPA as feature packages. For example, this allows for the direct mediation of X.25 to individual circuits of TCP connections when the X.25 vertical service is selected on a port.

The IP-MPA is an internet protocal (IP) access device. That is, it mediates the protocol conversion any of the supported protocols and the IP protocol suite. This includes IP, TCP, Telnet, RTP, ARP, SNMP, etc.
