Next Generation Aggregation
RAD’s next generation aggregation solutions for business Ethernet and wholesale services are ideal for carriers and providers wishing to replace their SDH/SONET in the transport and Middle Mile with Carrier Ethernet technology. The ETX-1002 10-Gigabit Carrier Ethernet aggregation switch is a pure fiber aggregation solution that grooms traffic from multiple users over 10 Gigabit Ethernet links at wire-speed. The high capacity non-blocking edge switch provides a central aggregation solution for ETX Carrier Ethernet demarcation devices or third-party NTUs installed at the customer premises. Deployed in hub and spoke or resilient ring topologies, the ETX-1002 10-Gigabit Carrier Ethernet aggregation switch is equipped with multi-priority traffic management capabilities. These, together with Ethernet OAM diagnostics, allow carrier-grade service assurance, making it ideal for aggregation of business services and VPNs, triple-play and broadband aggregation, as well as data center consolidation.
In the upcoming months, RAD will also be releasing the Egate-2000 Gigabit Ethernet aggregator over PDH and SDH/SONET access, as well as the ETX-5300, a fiber-based 10G Carrier Ethernet access aggregation platform for Ethernet and TDM services.
