24 January 2003 -- RAD Data Communications, Tel Aviv, and Axerra Networks, a developer of Multiservice over Internet Protocol products, have concluded interoperability testing between the IPmux-1 customer located TDM over IP Gateway and the AXN Multiservice IP Concentrator with Circuit Emulation Service over IP support.

The test simulated connecting multiple single-port IPmux-1 devices deployed at the customer premises and an AXN Multiservice IP Concentrator installed at the Central Office. The demonstration included both fractional E1/T1 as well as unframed E1/T1 traffic, replicating the source clock originating at the Central Office.

Working in tandem, RAD's IPmux and Axerra's AXN enable users to migrate legacy voice, video, and data traffic, as well as LAN, over large, complex Ethernet/IP networks and benefit from the advantages that both product lines have to offer.

"Adding the ability to work opposite a large multiservice platform such as the AXN from Axerra to RAD's IPmux-1 will open new opportunities for connecting large and complex corporate legacy networks over carriers�Next Generation networks," says Tal Gilad, TDMoIP Product Manager at RAD

"This complements our existing line of solutions which already supports over 2,500 TDM circuits in enterprise and service provider packet switched networks worldwide."

"Service providers can benefit from an optimized solution to connect customers� legacy PBXs to Class 5 switches over IP/Ethernet using a low-cost single-port device at the customer premises and a scalable carrier-class concentrator that supports a wide range of interfaces at the Central Office," explains Ronen Ostri, director of product management, of Axerra Networks.

The Axerra AXN Multiservice IP Concentrators are a new class of product that supports all voice and data services over unified IP, IP/MPLS and metro Ethernet networks, while furnishing the Quality of Service, reliability and security on which users depend.

AXN concentrators support both legacy (leased line, Frame Relay, ATM and circuit-switched voice) and native IP (IPoFR, IPoPPP) services. Axerra�s AXN Multiservice IP Concentrator product family meets the exacting demands of service providers. It provides a modular, high-availability, carrier-class platform, and is designed for easy scalability to pace network growth.
