RAD’s ACE-3402 is a carrier-class multiservice aggregator, specifically designed to optimize cellular backhaul by multiplexing various ATM or TDM services into a single IMA, STM-1/OC-3 or Gigabit Ethernet network interface.
2G/3G over ATM, SDH/SONET, PSN
Typically located at hub sites or BSC/RNC sites, this device ensures the most economical allocation of backhaul resources in delivering 2G, 3G and next-generation services over ATM and SDH/SONET transport networks. Moreover, the ACE-3402 incorporates advanced pseudowire emulation capabilities, supporting operators in their migration to cost-effective packet transport by enabling the use of wholesale DSL services and Ethernet, IP or MPLS backbones for the provisioning of delay-tolerant, as well as real-time services. The ACE-3402 is a 2U-high device and fits into 19-inch racks for easy installation in limited spaces.
