Featured Products

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.


BiDi QSFP28 DD Adaptor
BiDi QSFP28 DD Adaptor

This simple-to-deploy bookend solution is ideal for network service providers, cloud providers, data center operators, and enterprise network operators wishing to utilize their existing fiber. BiDi Adaptor allows them to pair a small form-factor passive adaptor with any fiber SFP transceiver. This reduces the need for costly any 1G/10G/40G/100G/200G/400G dual to single fiber adaptor trenching and frees up fiber for other services.

MiNID® Sleeve

Part of RAD’s vCPE Toolbox portfolio, the MiNID enriches the Service Assured Access offering with software-defined functionalities for enhanced demarcation, remote monitoring and fault isolation, as well as remote packet capture and micro-burst measurement capabilities. MiNID also provides instant upgrades for legacy switches and routers, as well as for vCPE platforms and COTS servers. This helps service providers, mobile operators and wholesale carriers introduce new services quickly and with better quality of experience (QoE) while increasing operational efficiency and lowering costs. Remotely managed via CLI, web interface and SNMP, it features zero-touch provisioning for fast and simple installation and does not require dedicated training.

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.

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.
