|RAD Completes its Vmux Family of Optimization Solutions for Cellular Backhaul|
A-bis and A-ter Gateway Maximizes Bandwidth Efficiency over Ethernet/IP/MPLS Packet-Switched Networks or TDM-based Transport
Tel Aviv, January 17, 2006: RAD Data Communications has announced that at the 3GSM World Congress, to be held February 13-16, 2006 in Barcelona, it will exhibit its complete Vmux family of access solutions for cellular networks.
At 3GSM RAD will unveil its new Vmux-420 A-bis (BTS to BSC) and A-ter (BSC-to-MSC) standalone optimization gateway. The Vmux-420 enables mobile operators to make better use of their network resources by offering up to 3:1 bandwidth optimization (assuming 50% average network silence) as well as a 2:1 reduction in the number of E1 ports required. The product is adapted to function in a terrestrial, satellite or microwave environment over packet-switched networks (Ethernet/IP/MPLS), or TDM-based transport. Used together with RAD's Vmux-2100 voice trunking gateway, which provides A (BSC to MSC) interface and E (MSC to MSC/PSTN) interface optimization, the Vmux-420 can help cellular operators reduce operating expenses (Opex) across the entire backhaul pathway, while enabling them to expand their network infrastructure and introduce new services without incurring additional leased lines costs.
The Vmux-420 complements RAD's Vmux-400 A-bis and A-ter standalone optimization gateway by providing a higher port density in a point-to-multipoint configuration. Both products are fully redundant and scalable, and offer an impressive price/performance ratio.

Eliminating Backhaul Inefficiencies over Satellite
Satellite services, however, are billed according to the quantity of bandwidth consumed, so cellular operators that have opted for such resources are under ceaseless pressure to implement whatever measures are available to maximize bandwidth efficiencies. The Vmux-420 ensures that satellite links are utilized as efficiently as possible by eliminating inefficiencies by not transmitting idle and silent frames. This results in bandwidth savings of 50 percent and more, enabling satellite service providers to offer their customers a more attractive complete solution.
