RAD Data Communications and Teknovus have rolled out support for the migration of legacy time-division multiplexing services to next-generation IP networks.
The combination of RAD's TDM pseudowire gateways and Teknovus' EPON (Ethernet passive optical network) chips enables service providers to consolidate all services - traditional voice, VoIP, data, and video - onto one unified network, thereby preserving revenues from legacy services while opening up new subscriber opportunities.
Together, RAD and Teknovus enable transport providers to meet clocking and timing requirements for traditional services in the modern IP-network world, including backhaul of base station traffic from multiple cellular providers over a shared EPON.
RAD and Teknovus tout that only they can enable backhaul support for multiple carriers' traffic streams, creating a virtual isolated network - for each cellular and/or Wimax provider - whose performance is completely unaffected by other traffic. These virtual networks are created using RAD's multiple clock transport/recovery technology and Teknovus' M-LLIDs (Multiple Logical Link IDs).
