Multiservice Switches and Routers


RAD’s multiservice switches and routers allow a seamless migration to next-gen communications:

  • Maintain legacy TDM services over new packet networks
  • Avoid costly maintenance of obsolete TDM network equipment
  • Support heterogenic First Mile footprint
  • Flexibility in PWE termination options


High Capacity Hybrid Cross Connect

RAD’s DXC-5 enables a seamless migration to next-generation operational networks. It provides multiservice, high capacity core and edge aggregation over TDM, hybrid and all-packet transport. 
The DXC-5 reduces operational costs by using a single platform for all service requirements. Critical infrastructure network operators choose the DXC-5 as it coexists with legacy cross connects, then seamlessly replaces them when they reach end-of-life status, allowing the addition of new services and bandwidth capacity. DXC-5’s transport flexibility ensures that services are matched to the best technology to meet their requirements. By performing service multiplexing over the packet, DS1-level TDM switching, and DWDM in the same device, it reduces the transport cost per bit and ensures mission-critical reliability with minimal latency.

Multiservice Pseudowire Access Gateway

RAD’s Megaplex-1 is a compact, highly reliable multiservice access node that transports analog and TDM traffic originating from legacy circuit-switched devices, over packet-switched networks (PSNs).
The Megaplex-1 is specifically designed to address the needs of critical infrastructure network operators who are migrating to next-generation Ethernet or IP/MPLS communications. This includes utilities, transportation, and government users. It enables seamless service migration with a scalable TDM over packet pseudowire engine and comprehensive multiservice support for PDH, high and low-speed data, analog voice and Teleprotection services.

Next-Generation Multiservice Access Node

The Megaplex-4’s ability to handle a broad range of Ethernet, data and voice services, as well as a large variety of network technologies, in a single compact managed node, makes it an ideal solution for carriers and service providers. The device also provides a perfect fit for large enterprises, utilities, and transportation companies who require an efficient way to transport and provision multiple legacy and next-generation services over their high capacity pipes. Megaplex-4 can be used as a central aggregation unit for TDM and Ethernet CPEs that are connected over various access link technologies, e.g., HSDSL and SDH/SONET.
The Megaplex-4 is available with cable management the solution to reduce storage space and handling, and eliminate cable waste.
