Telekom Romania Communications to Deploy RAD's CE 2.0-Certified Carrier Ethernet Service Assured Access Solution

Will Deliver Wholesale Broadband Connectivity to International Service Providers


RAD, whose Service Assured Access solutions are deployed by leading operators around the world, has announced that Telekom Romania Communications has selected its Carrier Ethernet CE 2.0 MEF-certified demarcation devices to facilitate the delivery of wholesale broadband connectivity to international service providers.

“Given the accelerated evolution of customers’ demands from legacy to new generation Ethernet-based services and the shift from the local to global market, we focused on developing our capability to provide the best standardized solutions featuring improved classes of services, service manageability and interoperability,” explains Sonia Radut, Products and Business Development Romania Project Manager, Telekom Romania Group. “In this respect, we selected RAD’S ETX-2 demarcation devices as the best solution for our Carrier Ethernet 2.0 MEF certified services - L2Connect 2.0.”

RAD’s ETX-2, an element in its Service Assured Access portfolio, provides advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 demarcation for SLA-based services. It is designed to lower costs for operating the solution and increase efficiency with an extensive service lifecycle toolkit that can be implemented in a variety of deployment modes over any access infrastructure.

“RAD, of course, is honored to have been selected by Telekom Romania Communications,” states Illy Sarid, Senior Regional Sales Manager at RAD. “Their decision followed a thorough selection process and a testing period that pitted our solution with those of competing vendors to ensure quality and compatibility,” he continues. “This certainly testifies to our leadership in designing the industry’s best state-of-the-art Carrier Ethernet solutions.”

The contract was facilitated by ICG, a local RAD partner in Romania, which will also provide logistical and technical support to Telekom Romania Communications during the
deployment process. “ICG has partnered with RAD for almost two decades, and provided the first RAD solution to the former Romtelecom, currently Telekom Romania Communications, in 1995,” notes Gabriel Badea, its General Manager.
