RAD Unveils 100G, SDN-Ready Service Assured Demarcation and Aggregation Platform

Provides Flexible Service Delivery and Assurance at Ultra-high Bandwidths
Oct 23, 2018

RAD, the leader in Service Assured Access solutions, today introduced ETX-2i-100G, a new addition to its comprehensive Ethernet access device (EAD) portfolio. It enables service providers to meet the growing demand for ultra-high bandwidth for mobile backhaul and MEF 3.0 business services, including data center and enterprise HQ connectivity, and high capacity E-NNI for wholesale services.

“Our new ETX-2i-100G addresses the need for agile, reliable and service assured demarcation and aggregation at data rates beyond 10 Gbps,” says Ilan Tevet, RAD’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “It is also an ideal fit for cloud connectivity as well as multi-tenant units (MTUs), as it allows traffic from different branches and business customers to be aggregated and demarcated without requiring an additional dedicated service demarcation device at the customer premises. At the same time, it securely delivers multiple separate VPNs with differentiated classes of service. ”

With its support of SDN management and control (NETCONF/YANG), ETX-2i-100G offers a powerful mix of capabilities for today’s network transformation.

ETX-2i-100G provides cost effective grooming of n x 10 GbE and 100GbE tributaries into a 100 GbE link. It also leverages RAD’s field-proven, carrier-grade operating system that is integrated in the entire ETX-2 family to provide a uniform user experience for provisioning, administration and maintenance operations. Furthermore, it implements RAD’s comprehensive zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) process to enable network and service automation by allowing devices to on-board automatically and securely, while minimizing human intervention and reducing OpEx.

“ETX-2i-100G enables service providers to ensure iron-clad SLAs that are supported by multi-layer diagnostics, fine-grained SLA enforcement and accurate performance monitoring”, concludes Tevet.

The ETX-2i-100G is already in use by a Tier-1 service provider in Europe. It will be showcased at the MEF18 event in Los Angeles, October 29- November 2, 2018.
