RAD’s ACE-3400 Aggregation-Site gateway is a carrier-class multiservice aggregator, specifically designed to optimize cellular backhaul by multiplexing various ATM or TDM services into a single IMA, STM-1/OC-3 or Gigabit Ethernet network interface. Typically located at hub sites or BSC/RNC sites, these devices ensure the most economical allocation of backhaul resources in delivering 2G, 3G and next-generation services over ATM and SDH/SONET transport networks. Moreover, the ACE-3400 incorporates advanced pseudowire emulation capabilities, supporting operators in their migration to cost-effective packet transport by enabling the use of wholesale DSL services and Ethernet, IP or MPLS backbones for the provisioning of delay-tolerant, as well as real-time services.
The ACE-3400 is a 3U device. The device fits into 19-inch racks for easy installation in limited spaces.
