Access Concentrator


The Metrodata AP Platform enables the interfacing of odd serial bitrates, standard telco services and infrastructure, and LAN/IP and other NON-ATM Services into a single platform. Narrowband (8kbps) to Wideband (155Mbps OC-3) data rates are supported.

Its based around a modular Chassis, coming in 3 sizes:

  • AP3000 - 3 Slot
  • AP4000 - 4 Slot
  • AP8000 - 8 Slot

The APSAT supports all common North American and European Interfaces such as T1, E1, E2, E3, DS-3, OC-3/STM-1. It can be used as a simple ATM Switch, an Access Concentrator of NON-ATM Services or even as an interface converter / FOM. With the addition of specialist modules for Satellite and Defense interfacing, the APSAT becomes a small backbone switch for integrating satellite and terrestrial networks.
