TDM to IP Gateway
The Ventnor Concentrator was specifically designed to address the needs associated with the elimination of leased TDM lines, which traditionally are used for transporting serial data. As such, the product comes equipped with a suite of built-in user configurable options that allow the users to configure the unit for their required needs depending on where they are in the migration path relative to the elimination of leased TDM lines, or, as commonly referred to Sun Setting on TDM.
The Ventnor Concentrator is intended to interface to a number of different devices such as NAV Aid Devices (VOR, RVR, ALS…), Weather Sensors (ASOS/AWOS), and Radar Flight Data Equipment. The Ventnor Concentrator supports up to 16 serial ports. Additionally, the Ventnor Concentrator has been designed to provide a CMHP RMLS connection that provides monitoring of the Ventnor Concentrator hardware, and individual channel configuration and status.
Configurations: The Ventnor Concentrator offers the following user configurable options for converting:
- SAI (Async) <-> CMHP, SWIM, ActiveMQ
- 790 (HDLC) <-> CMHP, SWIM, ActiveMQ
All of the options listed can also be configured to be transported over the FAA FTI network. By offering the above flexible configuration, as well as both serial and IP connectivity, the Ventnor Concentrator allows the user to switch over gradually or immediately depending on where they are in the migration phase.
Software: The software running on the Ventnor Concentrator is a SureLine® application that provides user access for operation control and maintenance. Access to the unit is provided by a Web UI (web browser’s GUI), a console port or network connection to STUI (Sunhillo Terminal User Interface), and SNMP. The CMHP Gatelink is a text-based curses application used to configure and control the Ventnor Concentrator network and serial port connections.
