emutel™ Solo Basic Rate ISDN Simulator Overview

emutel™ Solo is a small, portable lightweight battery powered basic rate ISDN and IDSL network simulator. With 2 software switchable S/U interfaces and the choice of either Euro-ISDN, North American or NTT support.

emutel™ Solo allows you to test and demonstrate all types of BRI equipment on one compact unit. Providing all the standard features but also many others that its competitors don't include.

It is important to emphasis that the emutel™ Solo is a Hardware ISDN simulator using the industry standard ISDN chip set for reliability and accuracy.

  • Comprehensive built in Protocol Analyser
  • Custom Tone generation as well as network tones (Dial, Busy, Ring, Error)
  • X.25 support
  • Test tone numbers
  • Power feeding
  • BRI-U range 5.5km
  • BRI-S range 0.9km
  • B-channel delay on Port 1
  • Point-to-point and Point-to-multipoint
  • Layer 1 dropped if Layer 2 inactive (switchable)
  • Layer 2 dropped if inactive (switchable on/off)

emutel™ Solo Features

CCNA/CCNP lab to training and certification the comprehensive solution
  • Small, portable and lightweight battery powered basic rate (BRI) ISDN network
  • Different versions simulate Euro-ISDN, North American or NTT networks
  • Two S/U software selectable Basic Rate (BRI) ISDN Interfaces allow you to simulate all of the functionality of a regular ISDN line - and much more
  • Simple configuration using Windows application or ANSI based terminal
  • Helpful LEDs show the status of each interface at a glance
  • Delays on B channels test effects of satellite delays on videoconferencing equipment
  • Semi-permanent/nailed-up connection for testing leased line operation
  • X.25 for testing and demonstrating packet switching equipment
  • Power feeding supported on BRI interfaces
  • Universal power supply allows you to use emutel™ Solo in any country
  • Emutel™ Solo’s weight, size and battery power unit make it a convenient portable network for exhibitions and on site customer demonstrations

By simulating the operation of a Central Office switch, Emutel™ Solo provides two software selectable ISDN (S [4wire]) / U [2wire]) connections which may be used just like regular ISDN lines or employed to carry out equipment testing.

Almost every feature of Emutel™ Solo can be customised, for example, port telephone numbers can be changed, special numbers to activate specific network conditions such as User Busy or Call Rejected can also be set. Line power can be switched on or off and delays can even be introduced into the B channels to emulate satellite links.

Emutel™ Solo is also extremely easy to use with indicator LEDs showing at a glance what each terminal is doing and a windows application program allowing simple device configuration. Emutel™ Solo is powered from an external universal power unit or from an internal 0.8AH 12V rechargeable battery. At just 1.5 Kg Emutel™ Solo 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.
