About East Coast Datacom, Inc

East Coast Datacom, Inc. is a customer oriented, high technology enterprise which was formed in 1994 to design, manufacture and support Wide Area Network Equipment. We manufacture the broadest line of Network Emulators in the network test equipment market supporting over 18 different interfaces for Serial, Telco and Ethernet.

For Ethernet, the WanRaptor™ Network Emulator allows users to test and stage critical network equipment adding network latency, loss, Jitter and re-ordering impairments. For Serial data and Telco the RDS-PLUS delay simulator is a modular, network link error and delay emulator that provides a realistic simulation of physical network behavior with respect to time delays and bit errors.

We also manufacture an extensive line of legacy network equipment critical to the military, government and Fortune 500 companies. These include data broadcast splitters, digital sharing devices, interface converters and many other network adapters. Our highly respected Sync2IP Converter is a unique solution for Sync data to IP conversion as we support any sync data protocol.

We hope you enjoy our collection of products we present on our web site. Keep in mind we can modify or design a new solution for your unique application.

  • Modular design with front load cards
  • Sturdy Metal Rackmount Enclosure
  • 85-264 VAC Universal AC Input
  • Optional Redundant Power Supplies


The 16-Port Nx8-MUX is a modular TDM Multiplexer designed to support up to sixteen sub-channel ports from 1200bps to 64Kbps in both Sync and Async formats. The unit is supplied with a variable composite port rate from 8Kbps to 128Kbps in 8k increments for maximum flexibility. The composite port data interface is software selectable for RS-232, RS-530, V.35, RS-422/449 or X.21.

The sub-channel ports may be individually configured to support flow control of RTS to DCD on a port by port basis or no flow control. The ports also support individual RTS to CTS delays and external TXC timing for DCE to DCE crossover. The data interfaces are RS-232 on 16 ports. Four of the user ports are software selectable for RS-232, RS-530, V.35, RS-422/449 or X.21.

The Nx8-MUX derives its timing from the external DCE attached to the composite port. Alternately, timing may be sourced by the Nx8-MUX in a direct cabled pair of multiplexers.

The Nx8-MUX utilizes four, 4-port interface cards, a main processor card and a power supply card. This modular design facilitates future upgrades and allows the user to add user ports in 4-port increments. All cards are front load.

The management port allows local and remote configuration commands. Integral software design features allow configuration of a sub-channel without disrupting existing sub-channels. Network management features include channel and composite loop backs, and link down error reporting. All port parameters are set with an async terminal connected to the configuration port. Setup procedures are menu driven and all parameters are stored in memory that supports power outages.

The Nx8-MUX has an internal power supply and supports voltages of 85-264 VAC. The unit supports redundant power supplies with system notification via optional
chassis. The unit is 3-U high, or 5-U high and is standalone or 19 inch rackmount. The factory warranty is 3 years.
