SHANGHAI, China -- Shanghai Mobile has successfully migrated TDM-based billing traffic to its IP backbone by deploying MegaplexT-2100 integrated access multiplexers from RAD Data Communications. The Megaplex-2100 will provide Shanghai Mobile a seamless migration path to IP for all of its TDM-based traffic.

Shanghai Mobile has traditionally used a 2 Mbps leased line as a transmission platform to collect billing data from MSCs (Mobile Switching Centers). The Megaplex-2100 is currently grooming Shanghai Mobile's billing traffic over those leased lines as well as the operator's own IP network. Shanghai Mobile, however, will gradually move all its traditional traffic onto an IP backbone. When that occurs, the Megaplex-2100 will serve not only as a multiplexer, but also as an IP gateway and migration platform.

Substantially Reduces Operators' Overhead

RAD's patented TDM over IP (TDMoIPR) technology, which has been incorporated into the Megaplex's ML-IP main link module, enables TDM traffic to be transported over packet switched networks. A key benefit of TDMoIP technology is that it does not require any software or hardware upgrade to any existing TDM equipment because it transports TDM signaling and protocols transparently. As a result, it helps operators to substantially reduce their operational and maintenance expenses. Because the RAD solution enables migration of billing information from TDM to IP, Shanghai Mobile decided to deploy it immediately.

"We're very proud that the Megaplex-2100 meets both the current and future needs of Shanghai Mobile, providing them a seamless migration path to IP for their billing information and other traffic," stated Jeremy Zimman, Director of Operations for Greater China at RAD Data Communications. "This successful case once again demonstrates RAD's commitment to developing innovative access solutions geared for the Chinese market," he added.
