New enhancements deliver higher performance and low TCO

RAD Data Communications have previewed major enhancements to its Megaplex-4100 next generation multiservice access node, specifically designed to provide unrivaled core/edge functionality for carriers, enterprises, utilities and transportation companies.

A pivotal part of the newly released AXCESS+ portfolio, the Megaplex-4100 
is a carrier-class, high-capacity central-site platform for grooming, 
aggregation, cross-connect, or transparent delivery of legacy TDM and 
Ethernet services over fiber, copper DSL, wireless, PDH/ SDH/SONET, or 
packet transport. Working opposite RAD or third party CPEs (customer 
premises equipment), the Megaplex-4100 handles a broad range of voice and 
data services in a single compact managed node, making it an ideal solution 
for carriers and private network operators in migrating their networks and 
services to next-generation communications.

The new release features, among others, increased Gigabit Ethernet and 
STM-4/OC-12 capacity, Carrier Ethernet-enabled design, minimal transmission 
overhead and ultra-low latency, transparent traffic delivery for large 
numbers of end users, and enhanced DS0/DS1 cross connect functionality, as 
well as simplified remote configuration and device management.

“The Megaplex-4100 offers the benefits of both the TDM and PSN (packet 
switched networks) worlds,” states Kobi Gol, Senior Product Line Manager at 
RAD Data Communications. “It also offers major CapEx savings by integrating 
multiple functionalities and technologies in a single device, while 
allowing substantial OpEx reductions with a unified management system and 
bandwidth optimization schemes.”

Maximum Flexibility for NGN Migration

The Megaplex-4100 features dual star connection architecture with hybrid 
TDM-Ethernet modules, which allow native TDM and Ethernet traffic handling 
with minimal encapsulation delays and zero bandwidth overhead. In addition, 
it is equipped with a full standards-based pseudowire emulation suite, 
ensuring TDM service quality is maintained when delivered over packet 
switched transport. Carrier class service reliability is ensured with 
system redundancy options, link and path protection schemes and enhanced 
support for diverse ring topologies.
“The new design we’ve incorporated into the Megaplex-4100 is intended to 
boost network performance and lower operator TCO (total cost of 
ownership),” concludes Gol. “Its high versatility and future proof 
capabilities offer maximum flexibility in planning the migration to IP, 
Ethernet and MPLS technologies.”
