  • Interoperability with old TDM equipment (Nokia, Newbridge)

RAD’s Megaplex-4 is a carrier-class, high capacity multiservice access concentrator for delivering legacy and next-generation services over PDH/SDH/SONET, or over packet switched transport networks (PSN). Its ability to handle a broad range of Ethernet, data and voice services, as well as a large variety of network technologies, in a single compact managed node, makes it an ideal core/edge solution for carriers and service providers.

The device also provides a perfect fit for large enterprises, utilities and transportation companies who require an efficient way to transport and provision multiple legacy and next-generation services over their high capacity pipes. Megaplex-4 can be used as a central aggregation unit for TDM and Ethernet CPEs that are connected over various access links.

The Megaplex-4 is available with a cable management solution to reduce storage space and handling, and eliminate cable waste.

Megaplex-4 Distributed NFV Applications

The Megaplex-4 offers an x86 D-NFV module for hosting virtual functions (VFs) and
applications. The D-NFV module runs on DNFV-OS, which includes standard KVM
hypervisor and OpenStack compute node to support RAD VFs and third-party
applications. RADview D-NFV Orchestrator enables easy VF download.
Supported applications include:

Virtual router for hosted public clouds and branch CPE deployments

Standard AES 256-bit cipher encryption/decryption of L2-L4 traffic

Unified threat management for provider-managed SMB services

Session Border Controller (SBC)
Manages VoIP signaling and media flows

Packet Analyzer
Troubleshooting-on-demand from the customer edge using a packet sniffer VF

WAN Optimization
Eliminates content duplication, handles compression and optimizes latency
