RAD's MiNID Ethernet NID on an SFP Sleeve Wins Best Telecoms Product Innovation Award
The MiNID Ethernet Demarcation NID on an SFP Sleeve, part of RAD’s Service Assured Access (SAA) solution, has been named the winner of the NetEvents Innovation Award for the most innovative telecoms product of 2013. The panel of judges was comprised of an independent body of ITC industry experts, including Dr. Robert Metcalfe, the inventor of Ethernet.
These prestigious awards recognize the very best in the technology industry and reward leading individuals and organizations for innovation and performance in the networking and telecommunications sector. They were announced on May 22 at a charity gala celebrating “Ethernet’s 40th Birthday” at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, in conjunction with the Ethernet Innovation Summit.
RAD’s finger-sized MiNID (Miniature Network Interface Device) plugs into the SFP cage of any manufacturer’s hosting device, transforming it into a Carrier Ethernet demarcation and SLA verification device for remote service monitoring and fault isolation. This enables service providers, wholesale carriers, and mobile operators to easily and inexpensively upgrade their networks to deliver reliable bandwidth with end-to-end SLA guarantees.
“What makes MiNID a winning telecom product is that service providers can now offer a premium SLA Assurance option with better fault isolation and low total cost of ownership," said Dror Bin, President and CEO of RAD. “MiNID breaks through the barriers of cost and complexity, making it possible to finally deliver Carrier Ethernet to everyone, everywhere.”
MiNID's innovative SFP sleeve design makes it a true plug-and-play solution that replaces standalone demarcation devices. In addition to virtually eliminating power, space, and cabling expenses, MiNID’s design renders certification issues with multiple SFPs non-existent. It is fully compatible with third party SFPs, switches, routers, small cells, DSLAMs, and other equipment.
RAD customers include operators and service providers such as Bharti Airtel, British Telecom, CenturyLink, China Mobile, China Telecom, Deutsche Telekom/T-Mobile, Embratel, France Telecom/Orange, Hutchison, KDDI, KPN, SingTel, SoftBank, Telefónica, Telekom Austria, TeliaSonera, Telstra, Telus, Verizon, and Vodafone.
