The Cisco® IAD2430 is the next-generation integrated voice and data services platform for service providers, building on the industry-leading IAD2420. The Cisco IAD2430 offers a major leap forward in price performance and enhanced software functions, such as Cisco CallManager Express) and rich Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) gateway services, to cost-effectively accelerate the migration from time-division multiplexing (TDM) to voice over IP (VoIP). The Cisco IAD2430 builds on the maturity of the Cisco IAD2420 software by providing denser interfaces (up to 24FXS and up to 2 data T1s), an encryption co-processor, and DC battery backup input while maintaining a 1-rack-unit (RU) form factor for space-saving service provider managed services deployments.
The Cisco IAD2430 offers the best-in-class integration of data and toll-quality analog or digital voice services for a customer-premises solution. Designed to bridge the current and emerging multiservice needs of competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs), incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs), and interexchange carriers (IXCs), the Cisco IAD2430 operates in both Class 5 switch-access and Class 5 switch-bypass architectures. Robust data and rich voice services in an interoperable system architecture allow service providers to offer new revenue-generating services.
Powered by Cisco IOS
® Software, driven by a Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) processor and high-performance digital signal processors (DSPs), the Cisco IAD2430 supports VoIP, with proven quality-of-service (QoS) tools, multiple call-control protocols (such as Session Initiation Protocol [SIP], MGCP, and H.323), and diverse VoIP codecs. In addition to industry-leading voice features, the Cisco IAD2430 uses Cisco IOS Software for data features such as IP routing, on-board encryption co-processor (Triple Data Encryption Standard [3DES]), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Network Address Translation (NAT), and network security. The choice of high-density analog and digital voice interfaces over a wide range of broadband technologies furthers the appeal of the Cisco IAD2430 to a broad spectrum of service providers.

The Cisco IAD2430 builds on the Cisco IAD2420's patented Simple Network-enabled Auto Provisioning (SNAP) technology, a next-generation auto-installation mechanism designed for faster service turn-up, configuration, and remote updates. When used with Cisco Configuration Express, service providers can order, preconfigure, and ship the Cisco IAD2430 directly to end customers, reducing the costs of warehousing, shipping, and manual intervention.
The Cisco IAD2400 Family Series has set the stage for migration from traditional to new architectures, by allowing service providers to deliver toll quality voice and data services over circuit- or packet-switched networks. With the Cisco IAD2430, changes in the core service provider's network are transparent to end users.
Figures 2 and 3 show the Cisco IAD2430 network architectures. Service providers can start by offering simple TDM-based voice services as depicted in Figure 2. As end-customer needs grow and service providers deploy more packet-based technologies in their network cores, customers can gradually be migrated to more cost-effective service offerings based on packetized voice as shown in Figure 3. The Cisco IAD2430 derives local voice services from either TDM-based Class 5 switches or from call agents (soft switches).

Primary Features and Benefits to Service Providers
Transparent Service Migration
The Cisco IAD2430 enables service providers to transparently migrate end customers from TDM-based GR.303 voice service to call agent-based packet voice services without the need for a truck roll to the end-customer site. The provider can choose H.323, MGCP, and SIP for VoIP protocols, based on the services that need to be delivered.
The Cisco IAD2400 Series is the first in the industry to offer TDM and VoIP with the rich VoIP signaling protocol support. Combined with the option for call agent- and GR.303-based network designs, the Cisco IAD2400 Series offers un-rivaled flexibility in the design of next-generation multiservice networks.
Regardless of the wide-area technology, next-generation service providers can use the SNAP technology to remotely install and configure the Cisco IAD2400 Series devices. When used with the popular Cisco Configuration Express tool, the auto-installation technology offers true plug-and-play installation. In addition, the Cisco IAD2400 Series is based on Cisco IOS Software and provides the same IP features that power more than 80 percent of the Internet infrastructure. Cisco IOS
® Software delivers rich data services, which allows service providers to gain additional data revenues, in addition to proven industry-tested voice features.
The new Cisco IAD2430 Series increases operational efficiencies by reducing or eliminating complete hardware upgrades, warehousing, truck rolls, and highly skilled technician involvement. When deployed with other Cisco equipment and Cisco IOS Software, service providers can cost-effectively extend training, administration, and maintenance activities across the entire network.
Compatibility with a wide range of industry-leading digital subscriber line access multiplexers (DSLAMs) and voice gateways, combined with the world-class data features of Cisco IOS Software, enables service providers to deploy a highly efficient and scalable end-to-end multiservice network. The Cisco IAD2430 is an integral part of Cisco packet voice solutions.
Primary Benefits to End Users
Robust Voice Quality
The Cisco experience in providing toll-quality packet-voice service helps ensure that the Cisco IAD2430 provides the clear, robust voice quality end users have come to expect from telephony services.
Cisco products are renowned for their exceptional reliability earned through years of proven industry service. The Cisco IAD2430 extends the same reliability standards to managed service environments to provide end users with the highest level of dependability.
Today's rapidly changing business environment leads to constant change in network requirements of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The Cisco IAD2430 facilitates such changes and allows service providers to add or remove service offerings remotely based on end-user needs.
