PDH to Ethernet fault propagation and TDM loop detection
Interoperable with third-party devices:
RICi-E1/T1 supports standard GFP (ITU-T G.8040) and HDLC
RICi-E3/T3 supports X.86 (LAPS)
QoS priority queues
Plug-and-play functionality using DHCP client
Remote diagnostic tools on TDM and Ethernet ports
Managed via SNMP, web server or Telnet
The RICi-E1, RICi-T1, RICi-E3 and RICi-T3 are network termination units (NTUs) connecting Fast Ethernet over framed or unframed E1/T1 or E3/T3 circuits.
The devices are deployed in point-to-point or hub-and-spoke topologies, working opposite RAD’s RICi-16, Egate-100, and Egate-2000 Ethernet over TDM gateways. This enables carriers and service providers to extend their customer reach and utilize legacy PDH infrastructure in delivering new Ethernet services. Typical applications include Ethernet access, backhauling network management traffic and connecting inter-office or enterprise LAN segments.
