Proscend  5600E series  EFM Network  Extender  is  designed to  provide bonded  high-speed Ethernet First Mile   services   over SHDSL on xisting copper infrastructure.It is a bridge mode modem that delivers Ethernet services with symmetrical bandwidth  at  rates  up  to  15.3 Mbps/Pair (TC-PAM  128).  


Proscend 5600E series extends the reach of Ethernet services to the sites by using bonded copper pairs.  Up to 4 pairs can be bonded together for aggregated  bandwidth  over  61Mbps  (TC-PAM  128).  Designed  with standard-based  EFM  technology  (2BASE-TL), deployment  of  Ethernet  services with 5600E is quick and simple on the existing copper plant. 

It operates mainly in  Point-to-Point  connection  between  remote  offices  and  enterprise  headquarter, providing   symmetrical high-speed   connectivity   that   is   ideal   for   large   and small-to-medium enterprises to deliver business-class Ethernet service. With Proscend 5600E series, network performance is significantly enhanced by eliminating unnecessary conversion of packet formats when transiting between Ethernet (LAN) and legacy ATM network (WAN).  User-friendly Ethernet also make it possible to save unnecessary truck roll costs  and  training  costs.    It  leads  to  minimized  risk  bearing  and  quick  return  on investment for both service providers and enterprises.Proscend  5600E  Series  operates  the  SHDSL  link  in  either  EFM  mode  or ATM  mode.   

It  is  designed  to  deliver  business  class  Ethernet  Service under EFM mode while providing the flexibility to be compatible with the existing  DSLAM  infrastructure  under  ATM  mode.    The  unit  can  be managed  by  different  ports  and  applications  including  comprehensive command-line  interface  (CLI),  Telnet,  user-friendly  GUI-based  Web Browser Interface and SNMP.

Proscend  5600E  Series  provides  future-proof  features  meeting  Ethernet Quality  of  Service  (QoS)  and  Class  of  Service  (CoS)  requirements  by utilizing 802.1q VLAN capabilities, four levels of priorities, traffic flow control and  rate  control.  This  traffic  management  and  QoS  features  enable  service providers to offer highly profitable and value-added services to a vast majority of business and institutional sites
