RAD Data Communications, a manufacturer of high quality access and backhaul equipment for data communications and telecommunications applications, has announced its feature-rich ETX-203A mobile demarcation device.
This new device is part of RAD’s complete portfolio of intelligent demarcation solutions for HSPA and LTE (News - Alert) backhaul and is based on the company’s next generation Carrier Ethernet ASIC, the ETX-203A Mobile Demarcation Device (MDD).
The company is set to unveil the ETX-203A at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) 2011 in Barcelona and claims that it reduces the investment required for effective delivery of mobile broadband traffic by combining attractive pricing with sophisticated capabilities.
“Smart demarcation is required in high capacity HSPA/LTE networks because dumb pipes can’t handle the growth of premium data mobile services efficiently,” said Ronen Guri, the company’s Business Development and Solution Manager for Mobile Backhaul Services.
Guri continued: “RAD enables mobile transport providers and wholesale carriers to harness Carrier Ethernet’s simplicity, lowest cost-per-bit economics and scalable architecture to ensure effective network throughput and increased return on investment (ROI) per spectrum outlay. But the value that we offer extends even further, with an in-house design of the ETX-203A’s ‘smarts engine’ that allowed us to optimize its cost without compromising the required functionality,” he continues. “As a result, we have managed to package a solution that dramatically lowers operator CapEx when adding the obligatory intelligence to HSPA+ and LTE backhaul networks.”
RAD Data Communications (News - Alert) was in the news last month for announcing a secure, service-aware industrial Ethernet switch solution for critical industrial applications and the public utilities market.
