RAD Data Helps Yipes Expand Its Ethernet Services

Mae Kowalke, TMCnet Associate Editor

When it came time to expand Ethernet services using leased DS-3 and OC-3 facilities, managed solutions provider Yipes Enterprise Services, Inc., found what it needed in the offerings of RAD Data Communications.
Yipes provides a scalable suite of networking services in major metro markets including Boston, Dallas, Hong Kong, New York, San Diego and Seattle. The company recently expanded beyond its own 14,000 miles of fiber-based network in order to reach more customers, and chose RAD Data as a partner to achieve this end.
In a press release out today, Yipes explained that this expansion is an important step for the company in order to build upon noteworthy recent growth—revenue increases of 51 percent during the past year.
“We are continually working to expand our network and add POPs in strategic locations,” Yipes CTO and co-founder Kamran Sistanizadeh said in a statement. “RAD’s technology also allows us to meet the rapidly increasing demand for managed Ethernet services through leased-line connectivity.”

Specifically, RAD’s RIC line of intelligent converters is being used by Yipes to form a bridge between that company’s Ethernet network and the TDM lines it leases.
“RAD's RIC products provide a reliable and cost effective means for extending our Ethernet service over leased lines in service areas beyond the reach of our network,” explained Sistanizadeh.
The network expansion is achieved by delivering transparent, wire-speed Ethernet services using DS-3 or OC-3/STM-1 lines. The result is an efficient, cost-effective Ethernet bridge with support for Q-in-Q VLAN tagging, QoS, and diagnostics.
In the future, Yipes plans to expand even further to transport over OC-12 lines, using a solution currently being developed by RAD.
RAD Data Communications is a 25-year-old veteran of the data and telecommunications applications market. The company’s products serve the needs of service providers, incumbent and new carriers, and enterprise networks.
