At the Mobile World Congress 2014, Service Assured solutions vendor RAD will showcase its latest technologies including Distributed Network Functions Virtualization (D-NFV) solution that integrates a Layer2/Layer3 FPGA-based NID and compute infrastructure with a standard x86 server.
The other telecom solution will be on display will be RAD’s ETX-2, a small form-factor demarcation and performance monitoring device, that provides traffic engineering and performance monitoring for both Layer 2 (Y.1731) and Layer 3 (TWAMP) services.
MiNID, RAD’s SFP sleeve, is equipped with comprehensive NID capabilities and interworks with any standard SFP inserted into it, instantly empowering existing networks, such as small cells, routers and DSLAMs, with Carrier Ethernet capability.
RAD will also be highlighting its Service Assured mobile demarcation solution, which features a built in GPS receiver and highly accurate IEEE1588 Grandmaster timing and synchronization management. By situating accurate timing at the last aggregation point in LTE and LTE Advanced (LTE-A) networks, RAD minimizes hop-by-hop upgrade investments and frees operators from the complex and expensive burden of having to bring GPS to every tower and small cell.
“Our innovations increase service agility, generate faster time-to-market for new revenue-enhancing services, improve operational efficiency, slash OpEx and integration costs and dramatically reduce the need for repeated on-site technician visits, cut TCO, and yield a much better ROI,” said Ulik Broida, RAD’s Vice President of Marketing.
