The T5C's super-efficient size (only 1RU in height), includes not only the capacity of physically larger backbone routing switches, but also the economy offered by workgroup switches.

T5C-24GT supports 20 Gigabit 10/100/1000BaseT ports and 4 combo Gigabit Ethernet ports either 10/100/1000BaseT or plug-in miniGBIC (SFP) 1000BaseX, providing a total of 24 ports. T5-24GT supports either AC or DC feeds. The T5C Routing Switch is the optimal platform for service providers for many aspects. The T5C-24GT capabilities provide the required solution for many application needs, from the Metro Core arena to the Metro edge and enterprise boundaries, either serving as the aggregation and/or distribution layer in a Metro application or as a core device in medium and small Metro access and enterprise networks. Users can benefit from its perfect compatibility to standards (for flawless interoperability), its smooth upgradeability and scalability options with versatile interface types, and feature-rich capabilities that allow the service provider to provide any IP-driven service from a single unique platform.
Copper Gigabit Ethernet provides cost-effective high-speed links and cascading capabilities. Plug-able miniGBIC (SFP) optical Gigabit Ethernet interfaces allow network extension over large distances. Various fiber interfaces for both MM (SX), SM long-haul and extra long-haul optics, Bi-directional (single fiber usage) and CWDM modules are supported.

New Age networks demand performance, reliability, security, and connectivity. BiNOS (BATM/Telco Systems Inter Networking Operating System) provides the robust administration, management, QoS, and security performance requirements of enterprise networks by supporting a wide breadth of IEEE standards and industry conventions, such as Access Control Lists. Hardware based implementation of BiNOS mandated policies enables the T5C Routing Switch to carry out Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 routing at wire speed.The T5C Routing Switch provides a non-traffic affecting, L2 to L3 migration path, utilizing a single CPU.

T5C Routing Switches are fully manageable via SNMP, CLI, or the Web with either In-band (IB) or Out-of-Band (OOB) management tools. The CLI complies with the de facto industry standard and enables administration via a user friendly interface. Web management is made possible by utilizing embedded Java™ based user friendly management technology.

Administrators can use industry-standard SNMP-based network management systems, or BiNOSCenter. The BiNOSCenter is BATM/Telco Systems EMS/NMS Element/Network Management System and provides the network operator with a state-of-the-art, powerful, SNMP based configuration, monitoring and maintenance platform. The BiNOSCenter can manage any SNMP-based element.
