    The Zypcom Z32CH chassis system provides a growth path solution for dial-up networking applications. The Z32CH's modular design can be configured as a basic modem pool or an advanced network access solution that operates with your existing Unix SNMP manager.

    Central Site Consolidation

    The Z32CH chassis provides a high-density rack-mounted solution for housing modems at a central site or LAN/Internet access point. Requiring only seven inches of vertical height, the Z32CH mounts in a standard 19-inch equipment rack, is convection-cooled and can be stacked up to nine high (288 modems) in a standard seven-foot cabinet.

    Configuration Flexibility

    The Z32CH's modular design accommodates three different chassis control cards (manual selector card, LCD front-panel card and a SNMP-/WWW-manageable card) to fit varying customer requirements. Four different power supply options (AC, DC, dual AC and dual DC) are available. With four different modem cards for a wide range of modulation types and speeds, the Z32CH allows you to configure the system that your application requires.

    LCD and Front-Panel Control

    Zypcom's rack-mounted modems contain status and interface LED displays. To augment the modem LEDs, the LCD-equipped Z3200 control card adds full front-panel and VT100 port control. The Z3200 control card can address one to thirty-two modems in the Z32CH chassis and allows for configuration, diagnostics, and monitoring. All modem software based-features can be controlled from the front-panel LCD or the VT100 port either locally or remotely.

    SNMP Management and WWW Access

    The Z3200E management control card adds an embedded SNMP agent to the Z32CH chassis. The Z3200E's MIB-II agent complies with RFC1696 and allows for fault monitoring, diagnostics, configuration, security management, operational statistics and new modem and controller firmware downloads. The Z3200E management controller can work with your existing SNMP client or with the Zypcom-supplied ZSNMPc by Castle Rock to lower network operating costs and maximize access. The Z3200E management controller also includes an embedded WWW server for managing your Zypcom modems and chassis with a Web browser. Use your browser over the WWW or across the corporate LAN to access the Z3200E's home page for complete modem management capabilities.

    The Intelligent Choice

    The Z32CH is a full-featured network access solution for traditional mainframe and minicomputer access to the newer client/server and remote LAN node applications.
