Carrier Ethernet with RAD products

As Carrier Ethernet services become mainstream for business, wholesale and mobile backhaul applications, carriers and service providers place greater focus on shortening deployment times, increasing operational efficiency and minimizing TCO (total cost of ownership) to ensure profitable service delivery. As a result, providers require a comprehensive set of tools to help them provision, monitor and control E-Line, E-Tree and E-LAN services more effectively. RAD offers a number of products to address these needs. Beyond the ability to optimize network operations and meet customer service expectations, such tools provide substantial cost reductions and revenue gains:

- Accelerate time to market by reducing time and effort required for new service rollouts
- Cut down truck-rolls, on-site technician calls and Trouble Tickets with remote testing, end-to-end visibility and proactive monitoring
- Minimize penalties associated with SLA (service level agreement) breaches
- Reduce customer churn with clear service performance reporting and fewer billing disputes

Drawing on RADís extensive experience in helping carriers maximize Carrier Ethernet benefits, the following  describes the various test procedures that are used at critical points throughout a service lifecycle, together with implementation considerations and practical recommendations.

RADís Testing-Enabled Ethernet Demarcation Devices

Service providers are facing a growing need to efficiently provision Carrier Ethernet services for new customers, as well as to effectively monitor, modify and troubleshoot existing services. Flow-based demarcation devices with built-in test head functionalities, such as RADís EtherAccess line, allow carriers to streamline the deployment, monitoring and maintenance of Carrier Ethernet services. By automating the provisioning of services and implementing Ďalways-oní, vendor-agnostic testing, carriers and service providers are better positioned to drive down costs, optimize operations and ensure profitable service delivery.
