WESTFORD, Mass. and BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Narad Networks, Inc., a provider of high performance switched broadband access solutions, and Axerra Networks, the Pseudo-Wire CompanyT and a leader in providing circuit emulation and service emulation solutions over packet access networks, today announced the availability of their combined Pseudo-Wire solution for delivering T1 voice and data services to business customers over the cable operator's hybrid fiber coax (HFC) network.

The combined solution meets the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) T1 specifications and offers operators a highly scalable solution for delivering business class T1 services in dense business nodes supporting up to 200 T1s per node and up to 500 T1s per node later this year. Axerra's Pseudo-Wire customer premise equipment is connected through Narad's Ethernet-over-coax network to a Pseudo-Wire aggregation device at the headend that can support up to 1000 T1 circuits in a single chassis.

"Working together with Narad we are able to offer operators a complete solution that finally enables cable providers to leverage their HFC reach to SMBs and mobile wireless cell sites with a competitive T1 solution," said Joe Ashton, Vice President of Sales, Americas for Axerra Networks. "The combination of Axerra's multi-service Pseudo-Wire with Narad's capacity-enhancing Ethernet-over-Coax solution delivers a highly scalable range of T1 services with the reliability, security and low-latency that SMBs and mobile wireless providers expect."

"We're very pleased to work with Pseudo-Wire technology expert Axerra in offering a reliable and highly scalable solution for T1 delivery over coaxial cable," said Michael Collette, Narad Networks CEO. "Cable operators have been asking for Commercial Voice solutions that they can use to penetrate the very large and very lucrative T1 market. This combined solution fills a large and important product and service gap between Commercial DOCSIS, which often do not have sufficient return path capacity to provision T1s, and Fiber, which is cost-prohibitive for the broad T1 market."
