Series 7000 T1/E1 Routers

Get top speed over T1/E1 lines with the midrange or enterprise routers.


Make the most of your network with wire-speedbidirectionalfull-duplexthroughput.

Faster and less expensive than comparable Cisco routers.

Aggregate speeds of up to 3.088 Mbps over T1 or 16.384 over E1.

Inexpensive midrange standalone models are available.

4- and 8-portrackmount enterprise models for E1 are also available.

Branch office


Suppose you want to connect various branch offices to a WAN. Or your enterprise network might need Internet access. If you’re considering purchasing or currently using a Cisco router, your network may not be running at its optimum speed.

Tired of sub-wire-speedperformance? Don’t want to spend the money for costly hardware upgrades? Eliminatesub-wire-speed performance andon-sitehardware upgrades, plus

do away with decreased bandwidth with Series 7000 T1/E1 Routers from Black Box.

These routers provide Internet access for enterprise networks or WAN access to branch offices, or they work in service provider sites.

In a typical T1 or E1 network, data is transferred over T1 or E1 cables at speeds of 1.544 or 2.048 Mbps, respectively.

But with Series 7000 Routers, multilink bonding optimizes bandwidth across multiple circuits. Here’s how it works: The router combines up to eight lines into one integrated circuit to provide up to 16.384 Mbps for E1.

And even with all of its enhanced services enabled (details on page 3), the router still gives you fast throughput and datatransmission—greatwhen you need more bandwidth than standard T1 or E1 can provide, but aren’t ready to upgrade to T3 or E3. Purchasing a T1 or E1 router lets you improve WAN

access performance, availability, and scalability without upgrading or replacing your existing equipment.

An important router feature is its firewall capability.

A firewall guards your network from interfering networks by using security to control internal and external access to data. It works closely with the router services to determine whether to forward traffic onto its destination.

Firewalls are ideal for secure site-to-sitecommunications, remote access, and parameter security. They provide an integrated platform for WAN access routing and security, while maintainingwire-speedperformance.

The routers offer more security features, too. Multilevel passwords keep your network secure, as does the firewall with SPI (stateful packet inspection).

The router also supports Frame Relay applications.

Layer 2 switching allows for all routing at the core, enables you to extend Ethernet over WAN, retains VLAN over the WAN, provides high performance, is protocol independent, and is easy to configure. Layer 2 also provides Quality of Service (QoS) based on IP, Port, VLAN ID, and DSCP.

Layer 3 routing enables you to route RIP/OSPF/BG, provides VRRP, QoS, and radius/TACACS+. Plus, there’s no memory to add, just a software key to upgrade. It also gives your network high performance.

Available models

The affordable 2-portmidrange T1 or4-portE1 midrange standalone models are ideal for branch offices and are highly scalable to meet your current and future needs. They’re also perfect for customer premise equipment. If you prefer, these models can also be wallmounted or rackmounted (call Tech Support for details). Spare power supplies are also available.

4- and 8-portenterprise rackmount E1 models feature fault tolerance and are NEBS Level 3 certified, which means they operate reliably in tough environmental conditions, don’t adversely affectco-locatedequipment, and don’t harm the environment or personnel. NEBS certification is the main difference between the midrange and enterprise routers.

The enterprise models are a good choice for corporate headquarters and service provider POPs.

All models include two 10-/100-MbpsEthernet ports for LAN connection, one DB9 auxiliary port, two ports for T1 connection or four or eightRJ-48Cports for E1 connection.

Enhanced services

The T1 and E1 Routers span a wide range of applications. Enhanced services include backup and recovery, performance management, security, Ethernet extension, video and multimedia, IP telephony, and wireless.

In backup and recovery applications, the router gives you component, router, link, path, network, service provider, and backup redundancy.

Ethernet extension includes corporate LAN extension, point-of-sale(POS) and batch processing,e-mailand shared file services, and storage and backup.

Video and multimedia applications the router supports include remote surveillance, videoconferencing, and distance learning. The router uses sub-rateto full DS3 technology,

as well as MLPP and MLFR, QoS, and Layer 2 and Layer 3 transport. These features enable the router to provide high-qualityvideo and multimedia service and lower total operation cost.

IP telephony applications that the router supports are Voice over IP (VoIP) and IP PBX. The router uses MLPPP and MLFR, QoS, DSX drop & insert, and VLAN tagging and forwarding to give you higher-qualityvoice services, more efficient bandwidth use, better infrastructure, improved interoperability, and simplified management.

The routers are also compatible with wireless applications. Typical wireless applications include wireless LANs and corporate virtual private networks (VPNs). Features

include MLPPP & MLFR, QoS, MHU, and VLAN tagging and forwarding. Benefits offered are advanced billing and mediation services, more efficient bandwidth use, better infrastructure use, improved interoperability, and simplified management.

Connects directly to the interface

A built-inCSU/DSU enables you to connect the router directly to the T1 or E1 interface.

Why Buy From Black Box? Exceptional Value. Exceptional Tech Support. Period.

Recognize any of these situations?

You wait more than 30 minutes to get through to a vendor’s tech support.

The so-called“tech” can’t help you or gives you the wrong answer.

You don’t have a purchase order number and the tech refuses to help you.

It’s 9 p. m. and you need help, but your vendor’s tech support line is closed.

According to a survey by Data Communications magazine, 90% of network managers surveyed say

that getting the technical support they need is extremely important when choosing a vendor. But even though network managers pay anywhere from 10 to 20% of their overall purchase price for a basic service and support contract, the technical support and service they receive falls far short of their expectations—andcertainly isn’t worth what they paid.

At Black Box, we guarantee the best value and the best support. You can even consult our Technical Support Experts before you buy if you need help selecting just the right component for your application.
