Central site solution, major building block of RAD’s portfolio for service providers, carriers and utilities, Megaplex-4 functions as a carrier-class, TDM and Ethernet aggregator, as well as a high capacity DS0
cross connect and next generation multiservice access node. It transports legacy and next-generation services over any infrastructure for seamless migration. The Megaplex-4 family includes two devices: a larger 10-slot Megaplex-4100 and a compact 4-slot Megaplex-4104. When deployed as a carrier-class Ethernet aggregator, Megaplex-4 can terminate
Ethernet traffic carried over E1/T1/SHDSL/SHDSL.bis/fiber links or native Ethernet copper and fiber, as well as through a VCG in the SDH/SONET circuits. This traffic can then be switched either to a different PDH/TDM trunk or to Ethernet ports. With RAD’s Service Assured Access (SAA) capabilities, Megaplex-4 provides Carrier
Ethernet functionalities, such as traffic management (TM), standards-based operations, Administration and Monitoring and Performance Monitoring (OAM&P). Using pseudowire, Megaplex-4 provides
legacy services over packet-switched networks (PSN) making it a fundamental building block in RAD’s Service Migration
Hybrid Access solution. Megaplex-4 converts the data stream from TDM/serial modules in the MP-4100/4104 chassis (E1/T1, SHDSL, data or voice ports) into IP or MPLS packets for transmission over Ethernet, IP or MPLS networks.
- Carrier-class multiservice platform: Ethernet services, high speed, low speed, analog voice, data, fiber multiplexing and pseudowire connectivity
- Central solution aggregating Ethernet and TDM services over fiber/copper from RAD CPEs towards SDH/SONET and/or PSN core networks
- MEF CE 2.0 certified, support of MEF applications: Ethernet Private Line (EPL/EVPL), Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN/EVP-LAN) and E-TREE, with flexible mapping of user traffic into Ethernet flows
- Distributed network functions virtualization (D-NFV) for rapid rollout of new services and network capabilities
- Certified for IEEE-1613
MANAGEMENT AND SECURITY
Megaplex-4 offers carrier-class provisioning features, including end-to-end path management, to ensure continuous service availability. Advanced SNMP management capabilities enable Megaplex-4 to control and monitor all network elements: SDH/SONET access and ring units, as well as remote POP and first mile broadband access feeders and CPEs.
