MAHWAH, N.J. -- TELUS (TSX: T, T.A; NYSE: TU), a leading Canadian national telecommunications company, has selected Ethernet equipment from RAD Data Communications to enable its new business Ethernet offering throughout Canada.

TELUS is deploying its new CML3 (Customer Managed Layer 3) Ethernet service to business customers of all sizes, and is using RAD ETX-102 and ETX-202 Ethernet demarcation devices as a cost-effective means of managing the CML3 service. With some 11 million-customer connections, TELUS is a leading telecommunications service provider in Canada.

RAD's ETX-102 and ETX-202 are intelligent, carrier-owned and operated demarcation units installed at the customer premises to handle traffic going to and from the TELUS Metro Ethernet and MPLS fiber-based networks. The devices give TELUS the ability to deliver carrier Ethernet services tailored to the customer’s needs and to manage those services to assure that TELUS is meeting its SLAs (service level agreements) with customers.

“Ethernet has finally matured to the point of being a true carrier grade service, in part due to the end-to-end control provided by products such as RAD’s ETX family,” said Zouheir Mansourati, TELUS vice-president Technology Strategy. “RAD’s ETX-102 and ETX-202 are helping us deliver a service that we have the confidence to back up with an SLA.”
