RAD provides telecoms equipment to Magnitogorsk in Russia

RAD Data Communications Ltd : 18 August, 2006  (New Product)
RAD Data Communications has sold communications products to Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Company, one of the world
RAD Data Communications has sold communications products to Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Company, one of the world’s leading integrated metallurgical companies. Magnitogorsk has invested in pseudo-wire circuit emulation technology, which provides voice and data communications over IP, Ethernet and MPLS backbones.

“As organisations move from traditional telephone networks to calls over the internet, many companies will be forced to revisit operational infrastructure,” says Grant Notman, UK general manager, RAD Data Communications. “Critical functions such as monitoring, SCADA systems (often used to monitor and control equipment and to highlight faults) and clock source services (used in time dependent processes) could be lost due to cost or technology issues.”

For customers that depend on such services, RAD offers TDM over IP (TDMoIP) technology, a pseudo-wire emulation technology that extends voice or data information across packet networks simply, transparently and economically. As an alternative to Voice over IP (VoIP), TDMoIP protects Private Branch Exchange (PBX) investments, providing the technology to enable voice and leased-line services to be offered inexpensively over service provider IP networks while retaining the reliability and quality of the public switched telephone network (PSTN).

“Pseudo-wire technology is transparent to all protocols and signalling, and therefore supports legacy PBXs, including proprietary features,” Grant explains. “Enterprises throughout the world are demonstrating increasing interest in pseudo-wire solutions because they minimise maintenance and operating costs by running voice, data and video over IP/Ethernet-based networks. For large companies like Magnitogorsk which have huge telephone networks, this can bring significant cost savings.”

Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Company has deployed RAD’s Gmux-2000 central site TDM over IP (TDMoIP) gateway and its Ipmux-16, Ipmux-14 and Ipmux-11 TDMoIP gateways to implement a powerful, centralised monitored hierarchical solution on different network layers. The equipment was supplied by RAD’s local partner in Russia: TIC, a RAD distributor and systems integrator.

Sole Vendor with Successful Deployment - RAD first introduced its patented TDM over IP technology to the market in 1999 with the launch of its Ipmux family of TDMoIP gateways. Since that time, the number of TDMoIP E1/T1 ports it has shipped has steadily grown to exceed 40,000, which makes it the sole vendor with TDM-over-packet switched networking equipment successfully deployed in the field.
