Transition to Cloud Services With RAD ETX-1p
The digital transformation accelerates the pace of adoption of
Service providers deliver value-added-services from their data
center, including networking (i.e., voice, secure Internet access)
and IT (i.e., cloud on-ramp) services.
ETX-1p is a branch office CPE enabling business customer
transition to the cloud.
Reduced Total Cost of Ownership
The all-in-one form factor includes full featured routing, security,
switching, LTE and Wi-Fi, making it easy to connect branches to
the Internet and critical applications, without the need for extra
hardware or complicated configurations.
The comprehensive, multi-service functionality together with a
variety of Interfaces, enables ETX-1p to support multiple usecases and customer segments in a single device, while reducing
capital costs and simplifying logistics and operations.
Market Secgments and Applications
By combining powerful networking capabilities with flexible
connectivity options, rich management interfaces, and
embedded security services , RAD ETX-1p enables service provides to
deliver advanced IP-VPN services, as well as value added virtual
services from the data-center to the customer branch.
Flexible Overlay and Underlay
ETX-1p is the service provider’s demarcation point at branch
offices, enabling underlay connectivity to IP-VPN and broadband
networks, as well as overlay connectivity to the service
provider’s data center. Branch offices consume their networking
services from the service provider’s data center, including IP-VPN
connectivity to other branch offices, Internet access and public
ETX-1p serves as an end-point for the underlay and overlay
networks in the branch site, offering resilient connectivity over
multiple links to IP-VPN and fixed/mobile broadband networks.
It can also serve as an end-point for overlay connectivity to the
service provider’s data center to allow value added services
running at the data center and deployment of centralized vCPE.
Branch site underlay connectivity is resilient with a backup link,
typically connected to a broadband network.
Singel / Dual LTE Modems and GPS
With embedded LTE modems, connectivity is available from day
1 without waiting for a wire-based connection. ETX-1p features
flexible configuration with option for one LTE modem with two
SIM cards, or two embedded LTE modems, for maximum
resiliency. Optional support of GPS for location reporting is also
available. The ETX-1p HW is ready for future support of 5G
Disaggregated Operating System
ETX-1p comes bundled with pCPE-OS, RAD’s carrier-grade,
64-bit, Linux-based operating system, designed to run on several
HW platforms, including ARM- and X86-based CPEs.
pCPE-OS is a security hardened operating system, optimized to
provide maximum performance with small SW footprint.
Containers - Next Level of Flexibility
ETX-1p can host containerized edge applications, supporting any
3rd party containers, which extend its original functionality to a
Containers can easily be installed and managed via ETX-1p’s Web
interface, or RADview NMS.
SD-CloudAccess enables access-agnostic application-aware traffic
distribution across multiple access links, featuring bonding,
failover, application based steering, and top up. This technology
allows traffic to burst into a second cellular connection when the
primary link bandwidth is not sufficient to meet the SLA.
RAD’s SD-CloudAccess solution can be purchased as an add-on
service. For more information, refer to the SD-CloudAccess
Management and Security of the RAD ETX-1P
Management: ETX-1p can be managed via Web, CLI or by RADview.
Embedded Advanced Security: To optimize ETX-1p for meeting the evolving security needs of distributed environments, pCPE-OS includes embedded security features and options, such as stateful, zone-based firewall, threat protection and DPI. The NGFW functionality, including zone-based stateful firewall, DPI for application recognition, IDS/IPS and DDOS prevention, do not require additional licenses. It is possible to specify URLs, Web content filtering, and much more.
Designed for Zero Touch Deployment by Service Providers and Easy Operation
ETX-1p is designed to simplify operations, while providing service
providers with visibility to their branch office demarcation.
ETX-1p incorporates secure Zero-Touch-Provisioning
mechanisms for agile and seamless vCPE deployment, reducing
truck rolls and minimizing mass deployment operating costs.
To automate the setup of overlay connectivity to the data
center, ETX-1p can be integrated with the service provider’s SDN
controllers or orchestration systems, using NETCONF/YANG
