Egate-2000 - Gigabit Ethernet Aggregator over PDH, SDH/SONET Access
Egate-2000 is a high-capacity aggregator that is typically deployed in a central location to groom multiple Ethernet user traffic streams received from remote devices, such as RAD’s RICi Ethernet NTUs, over channelized STM-16/OC-48 or STM-4/OC-12 links. The aggregated traffic is then transmitted to the PSN over up to eight GbE links.
Egate-2000 is ideal for Ethernet services, IP DSLAM, and WiMAX BTS backhaul applications; it leverages widely available PDH/SDH/SONET infrastructure to deliver carrier-class Ethernet services to sites where native Ethernet is not available.
Carrier Ethernet over TDM Access Solution
The Egate-2000 is typically deployed in a central location to aggregate traffic from remote devices, such as RAD’s RICi Ethernet over TDM smart NTUs. Together, they form a complete Carrier Ethernet over TDM access solution from the service provider's central site to the customer premises. Ideal for IP DSLAM backhaul applications, the Egate-2000 leverages existing PDH/SDH/SONET infrastructure to deliver carrier-class Ethernet services to sites where native Ethernet is not available.
