3 October 2003 Tel Aviv Lightwave -- RAD Data Communications says it will introduce several new products at ITU Telecom World 2003 in Geneva that will serve incumbent carriers immediate requirements to deliver Ethernet-based access services over existing SDH/SONET and ATM transport networks. The new product suite also will address metro Ethernet service providers' demands for intelligent dedicated access devices located at the customer's premises.

"By beginning to deploy an Ethernet access local loop, over the existing SDH/SONET or ATM backbone infrastructure, carriers are able to reduce today's access operating costs and simultaneously deploy technology that will be ready to serve tomorrow's access needs," states Dr. Yuri Gittik, director of business development at RAD Data Communications. "In short, they can achieve 'profitability without pain' from new Ethernet-based services, utilizing their current network architecture, yet be able to chart a migration strategy based on access equipment complying with the emerging standards for multiple services over packet-switched networks."

The Ethernet access products that RAD will unveil at Telecom Geneva include a dedicated Network Termination Unit (NTU), multiservice customer-located equipment (CLEs), an enhanced multiservice CLE, and a high-port-density central site solution.

Additional products for Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet access are currently in development. RAD is also considering the development of a dedicated access aggregator that would enable fan out over fiber and mapping into SDH/SONET and ATM, while also enabling future migration to packet switched networks.
