RAD joins U-BROAD research project to develop advanced access technologies Over legacy copper

RAD Data Communications Ltd : 31 March, 2004  (Company News)
RAD Data Communications has announced that it has joined the U-BROAD research project, a consortium of companies led by Metalink that will focus on ultra high bit rate-over-copper technologies for broadband multi-service access.
Established under the sixth framework program of the European Commission, U-BROAD is partially funded by the EC, which has provided it with a two-year grant of approximately two million euros. It aims to develop and integrate advanced access technologies for the delivery of “true broadband” content over Ethernet based networks to the customer premises, while providing interfaces to both legacy and next generation core networks. The project’s challenge is to quadruple the total bandwidth available to the end user.

The U-BROAD consortium also includes France Telecom R&D, Greece’s Hellenic Telecommunication Organization and the Technical System Institute of Technical University of Crete, Israel’s Bar Ilan University and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, in addition to RAD and Metalink. Each partner brings to the project extensive experience and knowledge in its respective areas of expertise in the realm of broadband access-over-legacy copper. RAD will be contributing its expertise in TDM over IP circuit emulation, as well as its experience with legacy access networks, such as SDH and ATM, and new access technologies, such as Ethernet, IP and MPLS. TDMoIP, which was developed and introduced to the industry by RAD, enables E1 circuits to be transported transparently across all packet switched networks, including Ethernet/MPLS/IP, while maintaining toll quality voice and all TDM features and functionality.

“Being able to provide LAN, data, video and voice over existing copper lines will be a real breakthrough, because it will enable incumbent and alternative carriers to offer high bandwidth services without laying new fiber optic cables to the customer premises,” explained Amir Karo, Director of Product Management at RAD Data Communications. “This will reduce the cost of those services and, in so doing, lower the entry barrier for customers requiring high bandwidth services who would not otherwise be able to justify the cost of upgrading existing infrastructure,” he added.
