emutel™ Pro

Basic Rate and Primary Rate Simulator Overview

Need to test some ISDN equipment or do a demonstration but don't have an ISDN line on hand? Emutel range of ISDN network simulators will solve the problem. Emutel is a family of products which simulate the operation of a carrier network for PRI, BRI and PSTN.

Emutel Pro has the same features as the Emutel but has 2 BRI and 2 PRI which will allow you to test both basic rate or primary rate equipment or basic to primary links to be set up. Emutel Pro has optional network support and protocol analysis.

  • Ideal for product development, testing and demonstrations
  • Make free BRI-BRI, BRI-PRI, PSTN-PRI, PSTN-BRI calls
  • Take your ISDN with you wherever you go
  • Test and develop products for another country's network
  • Simple configuration/management using Windows app
  • Extensive support for supplementary services
  • Leased line operation for testing permanent connection equipment
  • X.25 for testing and demonstrating packet switching equipment
  • Power feeding supported on BRI interfaces
  • Universal power supply allows you to use Emutel in any country

emutel™ Pro Features

By simulating the operation of a Central Office Switch, emutel Pro provides both Basic Rate ISDN (either U [2 wire] or S [4 wire]) and Primary Rate ISDN (EI or TI) connections which may be used just like regular ISDN lines or employed to carry out equipment testing. (see unit options for more details & link to unit options).

Almost every feature of emutel Pro can be customised, for example, the entire directory numbering structure can be changed. Special numbers activate network conditions such as User Busy or Call Rejected and line power can be switched on or off.

emutel Pro is also extremely easy to use with indicator LEDs showing at a glance what each terminal is doing and a windows application program displaying Protocol Analyser information and allowing simple device configuration.

emutel Pro is a truly international product. By plugging in personality cards the system can accurately emulate ISDN variants in a whole range of different countries. Cards are available for BTNR 191 (UK), VN3 (France), ETSI (Europe), ITR6 (Germany), NTT (Japan) and AT&T 5ESS, National-ISDN & Nortel DMS100 (North America). Network dependent supplementary services are also supported.

At just 2.7 Kg emutel Pro is easily portable and, since terminals can be powered directly from the interfaces, it really is the ideal system for use at demonstrations, presentations and exhibitions. In addition emutel Pro 's universal power supply, which automatically switches between 240V and 110V, ensures that the system is transferable between the US and Europe without any adaptations.

  • A wide range of interface types allow you to simulate all of the functionality of regular ISDN lines - and much more
  • Configuration is extensive but simple using a windows application or ANSI based terminal
  • Transparent mode allows you to connect a terminal to a regular ISDN line and monitor its operation using the protocol analyser
  • Helpful LEDs show the status of each interface at a glance
  • emutel Pro can emulate different variants of ISDN by changing the PCMCIA personality card at the front
  • Depending on network type a range of supplementary services are supported for telephones and PBXs
  • emutel Pro's weight, size and universal power supply make it a convenient portable network for exhibitions and on site customer demonstrations
