Featured Products


The Megaplex-4’s 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 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 link technologies, e.g., HSDSL and SDH/SONET.

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


The Megaplex-1 is specifically designed to address the needs of critical infrastructure network operators who are migrating to next-generation Ethernet or IP/MPLS communications. This includes utilities, transportation, and government users. It is specifically designed to address the needs of critical infrastructure network operators who are migrating to next-generation Ethernet, IP, or MPLS communications. It enables seamless service migration with a scalable TDM over packet pseudowire engine and comprehensive multiservice support for PDH, high and low-speed data, analog voice, and Teleprotection devices.


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.


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

PacketLight solutions are ideal for a variety of vertical markets, such as carriers, ISPs, dark fiber providers, data centers, storage facilities, utility companies (railway and power companies), and financial institutions. The wide range of PacketLight xWDM and dark fiber solutions includes multi-rate  sub-10G CWDM/DWDM platforms, 10G CWDM/DWDM and 100G solutions with built-in OTN options, amplification and booster solutions, WSS-based ROADMs, ten 1-GbE muxponders, and passive multiplexing solutions.

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.
