Featured Products


Featuring up to 750 Mbps aggregated sector capacity and a range of up to 40 km (25 miles), a single Airmux-5000 base station supports up to 64 remote subscriber units (SUs) with multi-band operation, making it ideal for:

  • Service providers and ISPs, offering IP backhaul and 4G/broadband access for remote, rural and underserved communities
  • Private networks requiring high capacity inter-branch connectivity for university campuses, healthcare organizations, government institutions, large enterprises and public establishments
  • Security and surveillance applications requiring aggregation and backhaul of traffic from multiple colocated HD cameras
ETX-2 Network Termination Unit Equipment & Network Interface Devices Family

The ETX-2 is MEF Carrier Ethernet 3.0-certified for E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree, and E-Access services, as well as delivering TDM pseudowire over packet networks. Supporting high capacity service provisioning per EVC/EVC.CoS, flexible classification and H-QoS traffic management, ETX-2 offers accurate and scalable service testing as an RFC2544 test device as well as performance monitoring. The ETX-2 is supported by RADview management and enables a variety of protection mechanisms. It also offers NEBS-compliant and environmentally hardened enclosure options.

Carrier Ethernet Network Demarcation MEF 3.0 certified ETX-2i

The ETX-2i provides MEF 3.0 demarcation and aggregation over any access, including over LTE/broadband. Its FPGA architecture flexibly adapts to future customer needs.



PowerFlow-2 ruggedized ethernet switches are ideal for operational networks of power utilities, railways, traffic controllers, and safe city applications requiring advanced Ethernet functionality and power over Ethernet (PoE) support. Note that a ruggedized ethernet switch might also be referred to as a rugged ethernet router.

RADview Performance Monitoring

The RADview features a network element manager, end-to-end service manager for Carrier Ethernet services, performance monitoring portal for ongoing monitoring of Ethernet and IP services, D-NFV orchestrator for virtual machines and application services at the customer edge, and a network planner for resource optimization and capacity planning.

Featuring client/server architecture with multi-user support, RADview provides intuitive graphic representation of network clouds, links, nodes, end-to-end services, and network status indication. Fully ITU-T FCAPS compliant, it offers security management supporting user access profiles and allowing network partitioning.


CypherPlug is an SFP sleeve form factor, capable of hosting any standard MSA compatible 100M or 1GE SFPs. CypherPlug transparently envelops a large variety of SFPs, enabling full reuse of customer equipment and seamless deployment over multiple access infrastructure types, such as short-haul and long-haul fiber connections, bidirectional single-fiber links, and copper lines.

The SFP sleeve is easily pluggable into standard MSA compatible SFP ports of switches, routers, DSLAMs and mobile base stations, eliminating the use of external power and reducing space and cabling expenses.

The CypherPlug functionality is based on a powerful FPGA that enables easy customization to additional or different customer requirements.

  • End-to-end static transport mode IPSEC encryption
  • Designed for seamless protection enhancement of any existing SFP-based network device
  • Wire-speed encryption (1000 Mbps)

CypherPlug enables OpEx savings due to lower power consumption, space needs, and installation costs compared to other solutions.
