etx-2 product image


The ETX-2 line of next-generation IP and Carrier Ethernet NID/NTUs offers advanced demarcation for SLA-based business services, wholesale services and mobile backhaul. Part of RAD’s Service Assured Access solution, it is available in various ordering options, including field-pluggable x86 NFV modules for hosting virtual network functions (VNFs) which were specially designed as virtualized CPE (vCPE) platforms. Featuring a high-scale, built-in router and modular network interfaces for any access infrastructure, the ETX-2 support up to 48 Gbps, with high capacity service provisioning, performance monitoring, and application awareness capabilities. Moreover, its future-proof design and innovative architecture allow dynamic forwarding to enable service chaining flexibility for embedded and virtual functions, as well as fit software defined networks (SDN).
