Engage IP Tube RS232


Flexible Serial Data Extensions over Packet Switch Networks


The IP Tube RS232 converts RS232 data connections, which employ leased circuits, into IP packets that extend the circuit over very cost effective Ethernet based LAN/WAN/MAN wired and wireless networks. The IP•Tube RS232 encapsulates Synchronous, and HDLC serial data into IP packets. The IP Tube RS232 is available with one RS232 interface, ordered as DCE or DTE, that facilitate the interconnection of Serial Data Over IP between Data Terminals, Data Acquisition Systems, WAN Routers and Bridges...

Layer 1

In Layer 1 operating mode every bit is encapsulated into an IP packet. The size and frequency of the IP packets can be set with data bit rates from 2.4 to 250 Kilobits per second. Latency minimization is accomplished with multidimensional adaptive clock configurations. A configured number of incoming packets are buffered in order to compensate for the packet delivery jitter introduced by the network. The size of this buffer needs to accommodate the peak amount of jitter.

HDLC over IP

In Layer 2 operating mode HDLC Data frames clocked at 2.4 to 250 Kilobits, such as those used by Wide Area Networking protocols PPP and Frame Relay or proprietary Data Links, are transported within IP packets as HDLC over IP. The latency introduced is dependent upon the clocking rate and the HDLC frame size. Minimum latency is obtained by maximizing the clock rate and minimizing the MTU. HDLC Over IP frames are directly sent out the Serial interface since Clock synchronization is not required. WAN security provisioning, such as firewalling, is maintained.
