The H3300 provides high speed digital transport over one or two twisted copper pairs using G.shdsl technology. Versatility of this series comes from a choice of digital interfaces and a choice of data rates, with the lower data rates applicable to longer reaches.
The H3300 is ideal for extending the T1/E1 demarcs on a campus, in a shopping mall, in a large building. It can use twisted phone pairs or Cat5 cable. One pair or two pair can be used. Two pairs offer greater distance. See the distance chart under specifications.
The H3300 is very easy to install. One unit is set as master, the other as slave. Only the master needs to be set. The H3300 makes it very simple to extend a T1/E1 demarc or install a local bridge or router. See the quick start guide here.
A rack version is available for central office or central site use, while a stand alone version is intended for customer premises installation. Either version, installed in pairs, can provide: 1) a T1/E1 link, 2) a high speed data link with DTE interfaces, or 3) a data access to T1/E1 with DTE interface at one end and T1/E1 at the other.
For larger systems using a rack version with the shared common controller card, the H3300 supports configuration and diagnostics using keypads and LCD display on the front panel, or from a local or remote terminal. This enables users to execute in-service diagnostics and fault isolation.
Quick Start Guide
This is the quick start guide that shows some details required when configuring the H-3300. You'll want to have a copy of this page and the front panel setup guide (below) when you go to install these.
Tales from the Trenches- Front Panel Configuration
This is a one page "cheat sheet" that some of our technicians use to configure the H-3300 from the front panel. We always prefer terminal-based configuration methods when possible, but that's not always available.
