The RICi-16 connects Fast Ethernet LANs over multiple bonded PDH links, enabling service providers to extend high capacity Ethernet-based services to remote locations. It is also ideal for backhauling Ethernet traffic from IP Node Bs, IP DSLAMs and WiMAX base stations over copper-based or microwave PDH connections. Employing standard Ethernet over NG-PDH technology, the RICi-16 improves overall network availability by reducing latency and optimizing line utilization and throughput.
The RICi-16 is MEF-certified for Ethernet Private Line and Ethernet Virtual Private Line services. It is equipped with advanced Ethernet SLA capabilities for handling multi-priority traffic, ensuring latency, jitter and packet delivery performance on a per-flow basis. The RICi-16 features a “pay-as-you-grow” license model, allowing the addition of E1/T1 links according to evolving bandwidth requirements.
