RAD Provides Range

MAHWAH, N.J. -- Mesa Networks, which provides wireless broadband connectivity along the Colorado Front Range (CFR), has selected interface converters from RAD Data Communications to increase the bandwidth available for provisioning business-class Ethernet services and to offer those services out-of-footprint.

The solution that Mesa found was RAD’s RIC family of intelligent interface converters, which enable cost-effective transport of Ethernet traffic over TDM circuits. Covering a broad range of throughput capacities, RIC products transport traffic as light as fractionalized T1/E1 all the way up to the backbone capacity of an OC-12/STM-4. In Mesa's case, they selected RAD’s RIC-155GE and RICi-T3 to transport Gigabit Ethernet and Fast Ethernet over OC-3 and T3 connections, respectively.

“Traditionally, Ethernet is transported over SONET using Layer 3 devices,” explained Oded Ilan, President of RAD Data Communications, Inc. “However, the OC-3/T3 wide area interface cards on routers tend to be expensive,” he added. “With low-cost service delivery a key objective, Mesa searched for alternatives and discovered RAD's efficient and economical RIC family.”
