High Performance of E1/T1 and Ethernet over Radio
RAD’s new Airmux-200 is a
carrier-class, high capacity,
affordable multiplexer
connecting E1/T1 and Ethernet
networks point-to-point over a
wireless link. Compliant with
RAD’s Airmux-200 Broadband Wireless Multiplexer enables the user to connect Ethernet and
E1/T1 circuits between two distant sites over broadband wireless. The Airmux-200 supports
a radio air interface bandwidth of up to 48 Mbps, yielding a full duplex throughput of up to
18 Mbps for user traffic. This means the user can transport up to 4 E1/T1 voice circuits and
have ample bandwidth remaining for 10/100BaseT Ethernet traffic. When combined with
RAD’s IPmux solutions, the Airmux-200 can scale to support 7 E1 or 8 T1 circuits, plus
Ethernet.

RAD Offers a One-Source Managed Solution for Multiservice
Access and Wireless
In addition to benefiting from the excellent price/performance of the Airmux system, RAD
offers the added value of a complete access solution incorporating both network access
equipment and radio units. This ensures that all system components are interoperable –
reducing deployment time and expenses. Furthermore, it enables the user to monitor the
whole platform, simplifying operations and reducing training time and expenses. Finally,
there exists a single point of contact should a problem arise.
When teamed with RAD's IPmux TDMoIP® Gateways, the Airmux-200 enables IP service
providers to connect their customers with multiple TDM services over the Last Mile without
laying fiber, thus aggregating all services at a central site. When combined with RAD's Vmux

Product Profile
Airmux-200
Broadband Wireless Multiplexer
Airmux-200 offers
simple and fast
installation, allowing
carriers to immediately
connect to remote
locations that are not
yet reached by fiber or
copper infrastructure,
and offer services that
would not have been
feasible otherwise.
The Airmux-200 is managed by the RADview SNMP PC-based Element Management
System (EMS). RADview provides a user-friendly GUI for configuration and fault
management. It is designed for applications where many links are to be managed from a
central platform.
Applications
With unbeatable price/performance, Airmux-200 provides a high return on investment in a variety of campus, enterprise
and service provider applications. These include:
• Remote site connectivity of buildings, campuses, rural areas, highway stops
• Cellular TDM and Ethernet/IP traffic backhauling
• Broadband wireless Last Mile where fiber cables are not available
• Temporary or emergency site connectivity, for special events, construction sites, military posts, field camps
• Backup for terrestrial lines or for disaster recovery
• Wi-Fi hot spot backhauling.
Fast Deployment and Reuse of Equipment
Airmux-200 offers simple and fast installation, alleviating the infrastructure investments
associated with laying fiber or copper lines. This allows carriers to immediately connect
to remote locations that are not yet reached by fiber infrastructure, and offer services
that would not have been feasible otherwise. If terrestrial lines are later installed, the
Airmux-200 can be easily redeployed.
Simple Set Up and Configuration
Airmux-200 consists of an indoor and outdoor unit connected by a Cat-5e outdoor
Ethernet cable, allowing a distance of up to 100 meters (328 feet) between the two
units. The outdoor unit can be equipped with an integrated antenna, or can be
connected to an external high gain antenna for achieving greater range.
The Airmux-200 is simple to set up. Once mounted, a single technician can align the
antennas with the help of an audio buzzer built right into the Airmux-200 outdoor unit.
A configurable automatic channel selection wizard makes it easy to find an available
frequency within the spectrum. Rapid installation and configuration contribute to
keeping operating costs to a minimum.

Maximum transmission range over wireless is a function of the selected transmission
rate, the services transported and the type of antenna used. This means, for example,
that a user will be able to transmit two E1/T1 channels and approximately 10 Mbps of
Ethernet traffic to distances of up to 10 km/6 miles. Alternatively, 1 Mbps of Ethernet
traffic can be transmitted to a range of up to 80 km/50 miles.
Enhanced Security Mechanisms
Radio transmissions are inherently vulnerable to eavesdropping. Airmux-200
incorporates safeguards to secure the wireless transmission against possible intrusion.
An advanced encryption technique is used that includes dynamic encryption key
changes to prevent unauthorized eavesdropping, and coded time stamping to prevent
false transmission from an intruding terminal. The network management system and the
equipment are protected by a password and a challenge/response scheme.

circuits over the wireless link. Moreover, for remote campus or branch applications, the
Airmux-200 can be combined with RAD’s Megaplex Multiservice Access Concentrators.
This combination offers multiple analog or digital voice channels, together with low or
high speed data and LAN services, over wireless links in drop-and-insert and ring
topologies.
