High Speed Carrier Ethernet Demarcation and Aggregation
ETX-2i-100G front view
• High Speed service aggregation platform addresses the ever increasing need for more high-bandwidth services at the network edge.
• Capable of delivering up to 100GbE to Business customers and Data Center Connectivity applications.
• The 100G device provides a small footprint (1RU, 19”) and low-power consumption solution means to address today’s key network challenges.

The global proliferation of mobile, video, and cloud applications creates an increasing demand for high-bandwidth access, generating new opportunities for communication service providers.

ETX-2i-100G from RAD is designed to address the demand for demarcation and aggregation of agile, reliable, and assurable services at data rates that exceed 10Gbps.

RAD ETX-2i-100G is capable of delivering up to 100 GbE services using a mix of 10GbE and 100GbE interfaces, while offering Carrier Ethernet 2.0 compliant service models, service monitoring, flexibility, and manageability.

ETX-2i-100G Flexible Service Delivery and Assurance up to 100G

ETX-2i-100G enables operators to deliver service level guarantees, by supporting multi-layer diagnostics, fine-grained SLA enforcement, and accurate performance monitoring. Built-in service activation testers support verifying end-to-end network performance.

ETX-2i-100G best in class traffic management capabilities include an advanced classification engine, VLAN manipulation, and sophisticated service shaping that provide operators full flexibility and control over traffic flows. ETX-2i-100G support for hierarchical QoS enables delivery of multiple prioritized service types along with best effort services, while efficiently utilizing available network bandwidth.

SDN Ready Management and Control of RAD ETX-2i-100G

ETX-2i-100G leverages RAD’s field-proven, carrier grade operating system – integrated in the entire ETX-2 family – to provide a familiar and uniform interface for provisioning, administration, and maintenance operations.

ETX-2i-100G can be managed using RADview, RAD’s carrier-class NMS, or any SNMP-based management system. The device supports a variety of access protocols, including CLI over Telnet, SNMPv3, and TFTP, with a comprehensive security suite.

ETX-2i-100G implements RAD’s unique ZTP process, allowing devices to onboard automatically and securely without human intervention, and enabling operators to provision services easily and reliably.

ETX-2i-100G is delivered ready for SDN transformation with comprehensive support for the NETCONF/YANG protocol, enabling operators to utilize modern network service orchestrators.
