TEL AVIV -- RAD Data Communications has unveiled two uniquedemarcation devices that transform legacy infrastructure into reliable,economical, accountable, and limitless next generation Ethernet-readynetworks.

By employing virtual concatenation (VCAT) to bond multiple STM-1/OC-3links, RAD's new state-of-the-art RICi-155GE and RICi-622GE GigabitEthernet demarcation devices leverage existing TDM legacy infrastructure tofacilitate a fast rollout of next generation Carrier Ethernet services. IPDSLAM backhauling or high-capacity Ethernet service provisioning overSDH/SONET lines reduces capital expenditures (Capex) while supporting abalanced and scalable migration to packet switched networks (PSNs).

"Incumbent and alternative carriers alike can create new revenue-generatingEthernet service options through an optimized utilization of SDH/SONETcircuits," notes Shoval Bolotin, Senior Product Line Manager at RAD DataCommunications. "The same solution also enables fiber-empowered operatorsto extend their existing Ethernet services to customers far beyond theirfiber reach."

Sophisticated Diagnostic Tools Reduce Opex

The RICi-155GE and RICi-622GE enable service differentiation and guaranteequality of service (QoS) for each user port per Ethernet flow and class ofservice (CoS) to minimize disruptions, while sophisticated diagnostic toolsreduce operating expenses (Opex). The devices also allow carriers todeliver Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Ethernet Virtual Private Line(EVPL) port-based and flow-based services using flexible traffic mapping,prioritization and rate limitation. Rate limiting and flowing enablesseveral different services to be transported over the same link. "Plug andplay" functionality provides for simple installment.

Both the RICi-155GE and RICi-622GE are MEF 9 and MEF-14 EPL and EVPL certified.
