TEL AVIV -- At Telecom Israel, which opened this morning in Tel Aviv, RAD Data Communications unveiled a customer-located Ethernet Network Termination Unit (E-NTU) that provides a clear demarcation point between user and operator networks, permitting end-to-end control of Ethernet services in the fiber Local Loop.

Owned and operated by the service provider, RAD's new ETX-102 allows the operator to separate each user's traffic and offer services such as inter-office LAN connectivity, Internet access and secure virtual private networks (VPNs). This approach extends the service provider's reach over fiber, facilitating management of differentiated services up to the customer premises while ensuring service level agreement (SLA) enforcement.

"Ethernet in the Local Loop reduces carrier expenses, since Ethernet ports are far less expensive than other options," explains Yacov Cazes, Senior Product Line Manager at RAD Data Communications. "RAD's cost-effective, remotely-managed ETX-102 is an ideal fiber solution for every carrier's Local Loop because it provides access regardless of the backbone technology," Cazes continues. "The savings that result can then be passed on by the carrier to consumers."
