RAD’s MiNID Becomes First Miniature NID to Receive MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Certification

Award-Winning Demarcation Device Instantly Provides any Existing Network with SLA Assurance
Feb 09, 2016

RAD’s award-winning MiNID®, part of its Service Assured Access (SAA) solution portfolio for communications service providers, has become the first miniature network interface device (NID) to receive MEF CE 2.0 certification.

With this certification, operators can now instantly upgrade their infrastructure to support premium Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified offerings for business, mobile backhaul and wholesale services without expensive investments in network forklifts. “This certification is yet another milestone for RAD’s innovative technology and further positions the field-programmable, patented MiNID as the leading product of its kind in the market,” states Ulik Broida, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at RAD.

Together with RAD’s central-site performance monitoring controller and RADview management system, MiNID provides a powerful performance monitoring (PM) overlay, which enables operators to run full-scale Carrier Ethernet and IP service activation and online diagnostics over any network, even one featuring a mixed assortment of equipment from various vendors. “What makes MiNID unique is that it easily adds powerful PM capabilities to any existing device,” Broida explains. “This, together with its versatility in enabling CE 2.0 network upgrades and simplicity, make it extremely attractive to service providers.”

Regardless of the application for which it is used, MiNID, by re-using existing hosting equipment, reduces CapEx by doing away with box-size demarcation devices, which is also a major advantage when additional shelf-space is limited or already unavailable Moreover, MiNID reduces OpEx by eliminating installation, power and maintenance costs.

MiNID is available both as a finger-sized sleeve compatible with any SFP and as a standalone unit.
