RAD Data Communications enhances TDMoIP, establishes alliance program

May 11, 2001
May 10, 2001--RAD Data Communications, Inc., a provider of access solutions for carriers and enterprise networks, announced continued developments in Time Division Multiplexing over Internet Protocol technology.

RAD Data Communications, Inc., a provider of access solutions for carriers and enterprise networks, announced continued developments in TDMoIP (Time Division Multiplexing over Internet Protocol) technology. At Networld + Interop 2001 in Las Vegas, the company cited two new product enhancements in its IPmux line of TDMoIP gateways, as well as a new TDMoIP Alliance Program.

TDMoIP is an alternative to VoIP for both enterprise networks and carriers. Enterprises benefit from investment protection and a simple migration path to IP, while carriers find value in new service revenues and low cost deployment.

Particularly noteworthy as a new product enhancement for 2001 is the IPmux-16 with T3/E3 interfaces. Previously only available with T1/E1 capabilities, the IPmux-16 is now capable of efficiently extending unframed T3 and E3 circuits transparently over packet networks independently of the underlying transport infrastructure. Solution benefits include new service revenues, low cost deployment with quick installation, and reduced operational costs. The IPmux-16 with T3/E3 interfaces was announced at N +I Las Vegas, and is scheduled to begin beta in June 2001.

Also scheduled to begin beta in the summer of 2001 is the IPmux-1E TDMoIP gateway. Like the IPmux-1, the IPmux-1E is a compact and simple to install unit ideal for customer premises. However, the IPmux-1E can aggregate analog or ISDN BRI voice with Ethernet user data over an Ethernet uplink, and also offers a redundant power supply.

In addition, RAD recently introduced the TDMoIP Alliance Partner (TAP) Program to promote an association of vendors offering complementary products and services relating to TDMoIP and RAD's IPmux product line. This Alliance Program aims to deliver comprehensive, interoperable solutions to the marketplace. Partner benefits include joint sales and marketing activities, the ability to offer more complete and unique solutions, and discounts on customer demo equipment.

"Gigabit Ethernet technology is leading edge, cost-effective and satisfies the needs of high bandwidth applications in such market segments as corporate campus, education, government, military, utility, and transit," said Marty Lattman, president of RAD Data Communications, Inc. "Additionally, service providers are latching onto Gigabit Ethernet as an alternative to ATM in metropolitan area networks."

TDMoIP Background

RAD claims to have pioneered the development of TDMoIP technology, which combines features from Time Division Multiplexing and IP to deliver synchronous T1/E1 and T3/E3 circuits transparently over IP networks. TDMoIP allows carriers and enterprises to migrate to IP-based infrastructures without discarding their investments in legacy PBX and TDM equipment. A more cost-effective alternative to VoIP, TDMoIP is simpler and uses less bandwidth. RAD implements TDMoIP in its IPmux line of TDMoIP gateways. More information about TDMoIP and RAD's IPmux family of TDMoIP gateways is available online at www.TDMoIP.com.
