Ethernet Service Aggregation Platform

The ETX-5 is a leading CE 2.0 access aggregation switch, successfully deployed worldwide in many large networks. 

RAD has announced that a leading Tier 1 service provider in Latin America has chosen its award-winning Service Assured Access (SAA) solutions to deliver MEF-certified CE 2.0 services for business, mobile and public sector customers over an extensive natio
MEF CE 2.0
Ideal first-level POP aggregator, E-NNI demarcation device and pseudowire gateway

The ETX-5 delivers aggregated Ethernet and TDM pseudowire traffic from the access network to the PE (provider edge) over 10-GbE links. Part of RAD’s Service Assured solutions for service providers and critical infrastructure, the ETX-5 is ideal for first-level aggregation at the POP, E-NNI inter-carrier demarcation and as a pseudowire gateway for seamless migration to packet networks.

For an enhanced user experience, the ETX-5 is supported by the new RADview management and orchestration system, featuring an intuitive UI/UX to simplify configuration and enable zero-touch service provisioning end-to-end. The ETX-5 is Carrier Ethernet 2.0-certified and includes an extensive toolset to deliver and manage SLA-based services.
