Ethernet
Megaplex-4100
Megaplex-2100
Megaplex-4100 as a hub of multiple resilient rings
Parallel TDM and Ethernet processing
The Megaplex-4100 features dual-star
connection architecture with hybrid TDMEthernet modules, which allow native TDM and
Ethernet traffic handling with minimal
encapsulation delays and zero bandwidth
overhead.
Ethernet traffic is handled by a multiport
Gigabit Ethernet aggregation engine, designed
for Carrier Ethernet capabilities, such as flowbased or port-based traffic management,
performance monitoring and Ethernet OAM.
Ethernet traffic can be terminated by any of the
following:
• Fast Ethernet ports located on I/O modules
• Internal Ethernet ports of I/O modules
• Gigabit Ethernet ports
• Ethernet over SDH/SONET
TDM traffic can be cross connected at a DS0
level, DS1 (framed/unframed) level, or SDH/
SONET (high/low order) level, with per-port
cross connect operation mode selection.
DS0 cross connect
The Megaplex-4100 features an internal DS0
cross connect matrix of up to 7,872 DS0
channels. Traffic from any channel can be cross
connected directly to any other channel.
These capabilities enable the Megaplex-4100 to
function as a service differentiation point at the
central office, handing off TDM voice and data
services to the transport network.
The device can also be deployed at remote
locations or the customer premises to effectively
fan out multiple voice and data services.
Next-generation ADM terminal
The Megaplex-4100 supports STM-1/OC-3 and
STM-4/OC-12 add/drop multiplexing for
grooming LAN and TDM traffic over SDH/SONET
networks. It eliminates the need for separate
ADM and multiplexer units for private networks
where voice, Ethernet and data services are
required.
By implementing VCAT protocols to carry
Ethernet traffic efficiently and minimize wasted
bandwidth, the Megaplex-4100 brings Ethernet
economics and packet switching efficiency to
existing SDH/ SONET infrastructure. It enables
utilities and other private fiber network owners
to reduce both OpEx and CapEx, while service
providers can leverage existing equipment to
support clear channel data streams and the
latest high bandwidth services.
Ethernet traffic can be mapped into
n x VC-12/VC-3/VC-4 or n x VT 1.5/STS‑1/STS-3C
virtual containers.

Single-box solutions for multiservice connectivity over copper, fiber and wireless
Ethernet and TDM aggregation
Smooth migration from TDM to PSN
The Megaplex-4100 can terminate TDM and
Ethernet traffic carried over E1/T1 links, fiber,
or SHDSL, as well as over VCGs in STM-1/OC-3
and STM-4/OC-12 links. This traffic can then be
switched either to a different PDH/TDM trunk or
to the Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The Megaplex-4100 supports legacy services
over packet switched networks, using the
MPW-1 module to convert data stream from
other modules to Ethernet, IP or MPLS packets
with TDMoIP, CESoPSN, SAToP, and HDLCoPSN
pseudowire technologies. The device’s ASICbased architecture provides a robust
pseudowire solution with minimal processing
delay.
Various users can benefit from this solution:
SDH/SONET customers who need to continue
using their network while maximizing
bandwidth utilization
• Subscribers with mixed Ethernet and TDM
services
• Subscribers looking for a future-proof
migration path for IP connectivity
• Dual network owners using SDH/SONET for
voice and packet for data
•
Carrier-class service provisioning and
central solution for RAD CPEs
The MP-4100 offers an end-to-end solution as
a central aggregation platform for diverse CPE
devices, including the DXC, Megaplex, FCD,
ASMi, Optimux, ETX, RICi, and IPmux lines. It
enables carrier-class service provisioning and
end-to-end path management to ensure
continuous service availability.
Advanced SNMP management capabilities support
control and monitoring of all network elements:
SDH/SONET access and ring units, as well as
remote POP and First Mile broadband access
feeders and CPEs.
The Megaplex-4100 is managed by the RADviewSC/TDM Center application. Alternatively,
configuration and monitoring can be performed
via either Telnet or an ASCII terminal using RAD
command line interface (CLI).
In addition, the Megaplex-4100 supports the
latest security protocols, including SNMPv3,
RADIUS and SSH.
Carrier-class service reliability
The modular, distributed architecture of the
Megaplex-4100 enables redundancy at the
hardware, link and service path levels, providing a
resilient system with no single point of failure and
under-50 ms switchover time.

flexible, modular TDM multiplexers, enabling
integration of multiple voice, ISDN, video, data,
and LAN services over multiple E1/T1, Ethernet
uplinks, or n x 64 links. The Megaplex main links
and user ports incorporate copper, CSU/DSU, LTU,
and fiber interfaces and are compatible with
RAD's standalone ASMi-31, ASMi-52 and FCD
modems. The Megaplex-2100 and
Megaplex-2104 are part of the AXCESS+
portfolio of multiservice access and First Mile
solutions.
Megaplex is standards-compliant, ensuring
compatibility in multi-vendor environments
worldwide. The E1 and T1 TDM framing and
signaling, PCM/ADPCM voice coding, ISDN, and
data interfaces all conform to international
standards.
Protection and alternative routing schemes
The single or dual E1/T1 main links support 1+1
and 1:1 protection switching for any E1/T1 or
fractional E1/T1 port with non-blocking cross
connect capability. This provides drop-and-insert
capability between any two links on one module
or between two modules. Megaplex devices
store up to 10 different configuration databases
and can switch between them. This feature
enables alternate routing in the event of
network or service failure, or at a predetermined
time.
The Megaplex is especially suitable for use as an
economical, compact remote multiservice node
for utilities and transportation. It is also ideal
for small to mid-size business entities, providing
mixed services for both business and residential
customers. It can be deployed at the carrier’s
point-of-presence in the exchange, as well as at
a remote distribution node, such as in an office
building’s basement.

Megaplex-2104 chassis with five slots − for both
I/O and main link modules. This allows for a mix
of a wide variety of data, voice, fax, and
LAN services. All Megaplex-2100 modules fit
both Megaplex-2100 and Megaplex-2104 chassis.
Ring support (E1/T1 and RFER)
Main link modules
The Megaplex supports various ring topologies
ensuring no single point of failure. E1/T1 ring
protection provides self-healing in less than five
seconds. Resilient Fast Ethernet Ring provides a 100 Mbps (up to 40 E1/50 T1) Ethernet ring with
self-healing in less than 50 msec.
The single or dual E1/T1 and ML-IP main link
modules incorporate the DS0 matrix between
the I/O channels and each of the E1/T1 trunks.
The modules support 8 Mbps non-blocking cross
connect for any DS0 coming from either the
channels or from the trunks. Multiple fractional
E1/T1 ports are supported. These main links
support 1+1 protective switching for any E1/T1
port.
The eight E1/T1/DSL main links support a higher
capacity of 16 Mbps when used together with
the HS-12 module, but do not support
redundancy.
ML-IP
Three-port 10/100BaseT Ethernet uplink module
with up to 4 Mbps uplink capacity. This module
serves as the main link to the IP network,
placing the packetized TDM data stream from
the I/O modules onto the IP network in the
form of TDMoIP framing. The module is also
available with two fiber optic 100BaseFX
uplinks.

DXC-100 is a scalable multiservice access node
that enables the incremental deployment of
voice and data networks. As the networks grow,
up to eight DXC-100 units can be stacked to
provide very high density grooming,
concentration and cross connect.
Scalable platform with minimal initial
investment
The modular, 6U-high DXC-100 is the newest
member of the DXC family of multiservice
access nodes. Each high density chassis
supports 80 n x 56/64 kbps, 88 E1, 88 T1, 11
E3, 11 T3, four STM-1, or four OC-3 links. Up to
eight chassis can be stacked to support up to
640 n x 56/64 kbps, 688 E1, 688 T1, 80 E3, 80 T3, 32 STM-1, or 32 OC-3 lines, for a
powerful, central site solution. The scalable
platform enables a carrier to deploy a low cost
system that meets its current requirements and
add more ports as its customer base grows.

backbone, grooming fractional trunks into full
trunks, maximizing data traffic payload over E3,
T3, STM-1 or OC-3 trunks, grooming data traffic
from different locations into a channelized
Ethernet router, and grooming monitoring
signals for quality of service or advanced
services. It optimizes the SS7 network by
consolidating n x 56/64 kbps and E1/T1
functionality in a single, cost-effective, managed
device. The DXC-100 can also aggregate
Ethernet traffic from several remote sites via
different trunks (for example, ISP or corporate
traffic) into one stream by using the channelized
router module. Operating as a digital cross
connect, the DXC-100 provides 4/3/1/0 non-blocking switching that is comparable to
larger, more costly systems.
The DXC-100 can connect copper-based edge
devices and networks to a fiber-based core, and
performs port concentration and grooming for
protocol-based platforms. Therefore, the
DXC-100 provides a migration path to optical
and packet switched networks. The channelized
router enables traffic grooming, saving the cost
of additional equipment or ports.

Cross connect, groomer and broadcast
E3, T3 and STM-1 multiplexer modules
All DXC modules allow maximum flexibility
between ports. A user-programmable
connection matrix connects any incoming 56/64 kbps timeslot to any outgoing 56/64 kbps
timeslot. It supports cross connect functions,
such as drop-and-insert, distribute and collect.
These modules provide full channelization
functionality for the multiplexing and
demultiplexing of DS0 traffic. Aggregated
payload is 34 Mbps for E3; 45 Mbps for T3; and
the equivalent of 61 Mbps for STM-1 (one
chassis). When chaining a number of units, the
aggregated payload is equivalent to 155 Mbps.
G.747 is supported by DXC-100 (see page 98).
The DXC family enables the grooming of
fractional traffic from the user side into full E1/
T1, E3/T3 or STM-1 trunks, for connection to the
network. Grooming and bandwidth maximization
are implemented by placing the n x 56/64 kbps
data channels into an E1 or T1 frame (including
internal E1/T1 of the E3 or T3 modules or VC-12
containers of the STM-1 module), using only the
required number of timeslots. This provides
fractional CSU/DSU functionality.
The DXC family can broadcast any traffic
combination from a single input to numerous
destinations. Channel relocating and half duplex
conferencing are also supported.
E1/T1 converter
The DXC family consists of modular multiservice
access nodes, providing non-blocking DS0 cross
connect for up to 120 lines.
Plug-in interface modules can accommodate up to
eight links each (see Modules section on page
102). Many services are supported, including
n x 56/64 kbps, ISDN, E1, T1, E3, T3, and STM-1.
The DXC family is also capable of converting
between E1/T1 ports. A-law/µ-law and signaling
conversion are performed according to E1 and T1
standards. DXC-8R, DXC-10A and DXC-30 convert
up to 16 ports. T1 traffic can be directly extracted
from the STM-1 module (which can act as a
converter for up to 30 T1 links).

The FCD-IPL comes with an integrated IP router
supporting PPP. The internal IP router operates
in two modes: standard IP routing based on
static entries, RIP-1 and RIP-2; and transparent
IP, in which frames received via the LAN/WAN
interface are routed to the other interface, with
the exception of management traffic, which is
sent to the FCD-IPL host IP address.
(QoS) is assured, based on standard class of
service definitions according to IP Precedence
(ToS) or DSCP. The user traffic is assigned to
five distinct priority queues: one Strict Priority
queue for VoIP and video applications and four
weighted fair queues (WFQs) for data. The Strict
Priority queue traffic is forwarded to the WAN
link before traffic from any WFQ, minimizing
delay and maintaining the quality of the
transmission.

FCD-155E
Ethernet and E1/T1, E3/T3 SDH/SONET ADM
The FCD-155E connects LAN traffic by creating
an SDH/SONET network. Support for generic
framing procedure (GFP) or X.86 encapsulation
with virtual concatenation enables configuring
the bandwidth of the IP channel in increments
of 2 Mbps (VC-12), 1.5 Mbps (VT 1.5) or
50 Mbps (VC-3 or STS-1), up to 100 Mbps wirespeed, for cost-effective adaptation of
SDH/SONET infrastructure for LAN connectivity. FCD-155E eliminates the rigid bandwidth
restrictions usually imposed by SDH/SONET
virtual containers, and allows for scalable and
efficient delivery of next-generation Ethernet
services over voice-oriented networks.
Multiservice offering
In addition to transporting next-generation IP
services, the FCD-155E continues to support E1/T1 and E3/T3 services. The traffic is mapped
into the SDH/SONET frame and can be
terminated at any point on the network.
The FCD-155E acts as a LAN and E1/T1 or E3/T3
terminal as well as an STM-1/OC-3 ADM.
Incorporating these functions in a single device
reduces the number of units needed and lowers
implementation costs.
The FCD-155E brings Ethernet economics and
packet switching efficiency to SDH/SONET
infrastructure. It thereby enables carriers and
service providers, as well as private fiber
network owners such as utilities and campuses,
to reduce both OpEx and CapEx as they use
their optical bandwidth for revenue-generating
Ethernet services. For a modest investment,
SDH/SONET carriers can tap into new business
opportunities while leveraging their existing
equipment to support clear channel data
streams and the latest high bandwidth services.
Service providers addressing enterprise
customers benefit from better utilization of
network bandwidth (for example, a user who
needs 10 Mbps LAN will require five VC-12 or
seven VT 1.5 links instead of a full 48.384 Mbps
VC-3 or STS-1 connection), and have the ability
to offer service granularity similar to nextgeneration Ethernet networks. End users benefit
from lower costs and a larger selection of
services that can better meet their specific
connectivity requirements.

Interworking module
KMBE
Ethernet IP/IPX router/bridge module
supports the connection of up to 256 remote
workstations to a main Ethernet LAN in bridge
mode, and to an unlimited number of
workstations in router mode. Bandwidth from
9.6 kbps to 1,280 kbps is supported on the link.
Interface can be AUI, thin coax or UTP
(10BaseT). The module includes features such
as Single IP, Solid Firewall™ and RADview SNMP
management.
All configuration parameters are stored in nonvolatile memory to ensure data integrity in the
event of a power failure. A secondary database
may also be programmed for time-of-day
bandwidth allocation or switched backup
operation. Alarm information is collected and
stored in memory for easy reading by the
management system.
The Kilomux devices include an SNMP agent and
can be managed using RADview-EMS graphical
user interface (on a UNIX platform). This
provides terminal access to remote devices from
any management station on the network for
configuration and troubleshooting.
Online supervision
Audio and visual indicators provide the status of
alarms and tests at the network, multiplexer,
card, and port levels and include all links
connected to the Kilomux. Alarms are
automatically logged and presented upon
request unless otherwise masked.
Sanity check
Configurations are automatically checked for
validity before being downloaded or upon user
request. This check can be performed at three
different levels: the whole network, one single
rack, or per module or channel.
Diagnostics
The Kilomux incorporates numerous test features
for easy maintenance and rapid fault detection.
Upon operation and during normal use, automatic
self-test and link-test are performed, and all
problems are reported to system management.
Local and remote loops can be performed for each
main link and every I/O channel. A built-in BERT
can be used for testing any I/O data channel and
a built-in tone injection can be used for testing
any voice channel. These extensive diagnostic
tests ensure quick fault discovery and recovery.

Optimux-1551 and Optimux-1553 terminal
multiplexers deliver traditional PDH services over
existing SDH/SONET networks. They combine
the high capacity associated with SDH/SONET
add-and-drop multiplexers (ADMs) with the
simplicity and low cost of a terminal multiplexer,
significantly reducing operating and capital
expenses (OpEx and CapEx).
High capacity in a compact unit
The 2U-high Optimux-1551 provides
connectivity for up to 63 E1 or 84 T1 lines, and
the 1U-high Optimux-1553 provides connectivity
for three E3 or three T3 lines. The products
comply with all SDH/SONET standards, and
interface with existing SDH/SONET backbones
through a single or redundant STM-1, OC-3 or
STS-3 interface.
To improve the price/performance ratio of the
product, partial assemblies are available,
reducing the price significantly in nodes
requiring only a small number of E1/T1 lines.
Therefore, the Optimux-1551 can be ordered
with 21 x E1/28­x T1 channels, 42 x E1/56 x T1
channels or 63 x E1/84 x T1 channels.
Carrier-class design
Designed for the rigorous requirements of
carriers and service providers, Optimux-1551 and
Optimux-1553 devices offer a high level of
reliability and manageability. Hardware
redundancy is designed into the system without
the need for custom Y-cables or external
devices. This 1+1 redundancy is provided for all
user interfaces through an optional second, hotswappable multiplexer card. 1+1 redundancy is
also available for the STM-1/OC-3 main link (unidirectional APS/MSP) and power supply modules.
This reliable platform maximizes uptime for
mission-critical applications. A fully equipped
Optimux-1551 fits in a single 2U-high 19-inch
shelf while the Optimux-1553 occupies a
1U-high shelf.
Higher revenues at lower cost
The Optimux devices allow service providers to
extend their network to remote customers,
thereby enlarging their customer reach and
increasing revenues, without the expenses
associated with deploying high-end ADMs,
which add unnecessary cost and complexity in
point-to-network connections. Compared to the
alternative of deploying PDH multiplexers at
customer sites, the Optimux devices interface
122
RAD Data Communications 2011 Catalog
directly with the existing SDH/SONET TDM
infrastructures and consolidate traffic at the
edge of the network. This enables service
providers to save the cost of fiber deployment
and multiple ports on the ADM.
Plug-and-play operation
Easy to install, maintain and operate, Optimux
products require no training or expertise. As
completely plug-and-play units, the products
allow carriers to extend the benefits of SDH/SONET networks to the customer premises
or central office in a quick and inexpensive
manner.
Typical applications
Optimux devices are especially suitable for
extending SDH/SONET network services to
remote and suburban locations such as
industrial areas and business parks. They are
also ideal for delivering multiple E1/T1 or E3/T3
services, in a fan-out topology.
The Optimux units can be deployed in point-topoint applications, connecting two sites over
fiber, to distances of up to 80 km (50 miles).
A service provider can use Optimux-1551 to
deliver E1/T1 services and Internet access to
multiple customers, and use Optimux-1553 to
provide E3/T3 lines to large enterprises with
higher bandwidth requirements.
Management options
The Optimux-1551 and Optimux-1553 feature
flexible management capabilities, including local
management via an ASCII terminal (RS-232). In
addition, remote management can be performed
either inband using the network or user ports,
or out-of-band using a dedicated management
port, while maintaining separation between
management and use. Advanced FCAPS (Fault,
Configuration, Administration, Performance,
Security) and diagnostic tools are provided by
RADview-EMS, RAD’s carrier-class element
management system, via an SNMP-based GUI.
The Optimux-1551 and Optimux-1553 also
support a variety of access protocols over
Telnet, SNMP and Web server.
The units are 19-inch wide, and 2U-high for the
Optimux-1551 and 1U-high for Optimux-1553.
