Target Market

  • Converged fixed and mobile operators

RAD Products Included

Summary description

The customer is a fixed and mobile operator that owns copper and fiber optic infrastructure, which it uses for last mile connectivity to its business customers, as well as for backhauling 2G and 3G base stations.

Its network is based on SDH and MPLS cores. A large number of central offices and colocation sites exist for accommodating aggregation devices, such as BSCs for 2G networks, DSLAMs and MSANs. In some cases the copper or fiber is aggregated at street cabinets.

RAD supplied a next generation multiservice access node (MSAN) solution, which enables the aggregation and termination of Ethernet and legacy traffic over fiber and designates each for transport over either the SDH or the Ethernet/MPLS edge devices. This is a dedicated solution for enterprise business services.
