Connectivity of many E1 (2.048Mbps) interfaces

This shows the physical connectivity of many E1 (2.048Mbps) interfaces arriving from locally-connected base stations before aggregation into channelised STM-1 interfaces for onward connectivity to other aggregation equipment at the transport node.

 

Orange UK, which is soon to merge with T-Mobile UK, invited Computer Weekly to its network management centre and R&D lab in Bristol.

The centre manages three main networks: the actual mobile telephony network, the firm's internal IT network, and the extranet that links Orange to its national network of retail outlets.
