TEL AVIV -- At Broadband World Forum Europe 2009, which will be held September 7-9 in Paris, RAD Data Communications will exhibit an Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) Network Termination Unit (NTU), which can reach a speed of 22.8 Mbps over 8-wires over SHDSL and 100 Mbps downstream/50 Mbps upstream over VDSL2.

“This allows service providers to use low cost DSL or in-building copper infrastructure as the access technology for delivering mid-band Ethernet services to customers where fiber is not present,” explains Ami Barayev, Ethernet Product Line Manager at RAD Data Communications.

Owned and operated by the service provider, the LA-210 demarcation device supports Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Ethernet Virtual Private Line(EVPL) services, conforming to MEF-9 and MEF-14 definitions.

The LA-210 is unique in incorporating not one but two types of Ethernet operations, administration and management (OAM). Ethernet Link OAM, based on 802.3-2005 (formerly 802.3ah), which provides remote management, including remote loopback, remote fault indication, dying gasp, and retrieval of MIB parameters. Ethernet Service OAM, based on 802.1ag and Y.1731, provides end-to-end fault monitoring and performance measurements. “Ethernet OAM is a cornerstone in the transformation of Ethernet into a carrier-class technology,” Barayev states. “It enables providers to proactively monitor their service end-to-end, reducing operational expenses(OpEx) in the process.”
