RAD Data Announces ASMi-52L SHDSL Ethernet Modem

Mae Kowalke, TMCnet Associate Editor

Telecommunications access equipment manufacturer RAD Data Communications introduced today its new ASMi-52L SHDSL modem, designed to extent Ethernet-over-copper link ranges.
The ASMi is specifically intended for applications requiring a single user port. The modem supports multiple data rates up to 2.3 Mbps (2-wire lines) and 4.6 Mpbs (4-wire lines). Reliable performance is guaranteed even over poor-quality or noisy lines.
RAD is offering the modem as a standalone unit that supports V.35 and Ethernet interfaces. An integrated switch provides VLAN capabilities for security, management of traffic, and fault propagation.
“This integrated switch reduces Capex by eliminating the need to deploy an external switch,” explained RAD Data manager Meira Erez, in a statement.
Optionally, the ASMi modem is available with four 10/100BaseT user ports. For users requiring longer distance coverage, the modem can be ordered with a PFH-4 power feeding hub for connecting to an S-RPT SHDSL repeater.
“This extends the operational range along distances where no local power is available,” Erez said.
Other notable features of the ASMi-52L SHDSL modem include:
  • Ability to work with LRS-52 and LRS-24 modem wracks
  • Compatible with DXC access modes and SHDSL modules
  • Compliant with SHDSL standards
  • End-to-end management and supervision
  • Can be managed using SNMP applications (e.g. RADview, Telnet, ASCII)
  • Supervisory port provides extensive local and remote diagnostics
