RAD Releases Unique Platform for Small Cell Aggregation

May 31, 2016

RAD, the award-winning vendor of Service Assured Access (SAA) solutions for service providers, has announced that it has expanded its LTE and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) backhaul portfolio by introducing a unique new platform for small cell aggregation.

“4G networks will rely heavily on small cell deployments to provide the required capacity and coverage,” states Ulik Broida, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at RAD. “They are already the market’s fastest growing element in today’s networks and are expected to feature prominently in 5G deployments as well,” he continues. “Despite their importance, however, there has been no efficient and economical way to properly aggregate large traffic volumes over fixed lines, until now.”

RAD’s new ETX-2i-10G is a small cell aggregation platform that combines high port density, including 10 Gbps uplinks, in a compact, environmentally-hardened enclosure – saving much needed rack space at carrier PoPs. Furthermore, it is equipped with full IP and Carrier Ethernet demarcation and performance monitoring capabilities, as well as flexible IEEE 1588 and Sync-E timing synchronization functionalities.

“This is a powerful combination,” concludes Broida. “As a result, the ETX-2i-10G enables mobile service providers to un​leash the full power of the LTE experience for their customers while lowering their costs.”

RAD will exhibit its latest Service Assured Access releases at CommunicAsia 2016, which runs from May 31 to June 3 in Singapore. RAD will be exhibiting at Stand 1H2-01.
