TEL AVIV -- At CommunicAsia 2008 in Singapore, RAD Data Communications will announce that it has expanded its unique System on an SFP® family by adding a new thumb-sized gateway with pseudowire functionality.

RAD's new MiTOP-E1/T1 intelligent pseudowire access gateway extends TDM‑based services over packet-switched networks (PSNs), allowing E1/T1 services over Ethernet-based networks. Ingeniously housed in a Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) enclosure, it is designed for quick and simple insertion into any 100BaseFx Ethernet device port with a Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) compatible socket. It is the first and only such product on the market.

"The MiTOP-E1/T1 is a simple and cost‑effective alternative to external, standalone gateways or conversion cards for each user device, saving on space, power consumption, cabling, and simplifying management," explains Jacky Acoca, Business Development Manager at RAD Data Communications. "The thumb-sized MiTOP-E1/T1 provides Ethernet switch manufacturers the opportunity to add TDM-over-PSN functionality to their own devices while speeding up time to market," Acoca continues. "For their part, incumbent carriers and service providers will find the MiTOP-E1/T1 a cost-effective migration solution to a packet infrastructure."
