RAD, Tuesday announced the release of the Megaplex-1, a compact, highly reliable multiservice pseudowire access gateway that addresses the needs of critical infrastructure utilities, transportation and government network operators migrating to next-generation Carrier Ethernet or IP/MPLS communications.

Critical infrastructure network operators have relied on legacy time-division multiplexing (TDM) communications for decades, but equipment manufacturers are discontinuing the use of this technology and forcing a move to packet communications, said RAD.

The Megaplex-1’s pseudowire capabilities emulate TDM connections over packet networks, allowing continued use of legacy equipment and enabling a phased migration to packet-based communications.

Part of RAD’s Service Assured Networking (SAN) solution for Critical Infrastructure communications, the Megaplex-1 boasts powerful capabilities and a small, 1U form factor, thereby introducing significant space, power and cabling savings.

It supports serial, PDH, high and low speed data, analog voice, and Teleprotection devices, with robust cyber security and management capabilities. It also performs ultra-fast hitless restoration with consistent (no variation) latency and easy implementation of performance monitoring tools.

It allows them to face this TDM sunsetting and migrate any service over any network at their own pace. More than that, it provides them with much needed peace of mind by ensuring deterministic performance, maximum service uptime and reliable resiliency.
