RIC-LC Ethernet Converter for Bonded PDH Circuits  

RIC-LC from RAD is a Fast Ethernet over E1 converter that provides simple, efficient and cost-effective Fast Ethernet connectivity over one, four, eight or sixteen bonded E1 circuits. The RIC-LC enables service providers to supply high-capacity Ethernet services to remote locations and transparently connect corporate LANs over existing E1 links.
RAD RIC-LC Connects Fast Ethernet LANs transparently over TDM infrastructure RIC-LC/E1/4UTP RIC-LC/4E1/4UTP RIC-LC/8E1/4UTP RIC-LC/16E1/4UTP E1
RIC-LC supports standard Next Generation Ethernet over PDH protocols including GFP ITU-T G.8040, VCAT ITU-T G.7043 and
LCAS ITU-T G.7042. These protocols allow service providers to dynamically allocate bandwidth to their customers by mere changing the number of links bonded to the virtual group, without stopping the service. The RIC-LC can be used in a point-to-point application or in a hub-and-spoke topology, operating with RADís Egate-100, Egate-2000 and RICi-16 or third-party gateways.

Typical applications include:
- Ethernet private Line/LAN services
- IP DSLAM, cellular IP, and WiMAX base station backhauling
- Interoffice or enterprise LAN connection.

Using interface bonding, RIC-LC creates a scalable, large virtual pipe comprised of up to four, eight or sixteen E1 lines. The bonding is performed at the E1 level,providing flexible bandwidth for different

VLAN tagging and stacking at ingress and egress enable transporting user traffic transparently, keeping all the user VLAN settings intact. Management traffic and user Ethernet traffic are sent together on the same Ethernet flow and can be separated by different VLANs, thus
ensuring high traffic security.
RAD RIC-LC - IP DSLAM and WiMax backhaul over PDH/SDH
RIC-LC supports VLAN-aware and VLAN unaware bridging, as well as VLAN stacking (Q-in-Q). It maps Ethernet frames into
four priority queues based on user port, VLAN priority (802.1p) or DSCP marking, to enable differentiation between various user applications. It uses both Strict Priority and WFQ (weighted fair queuing), as well as per port rate limitation.

The internal bridge can be configured to filter or transparent mode. In filter mode, the bridge learns MAC addresses and filters local traffic accordingly. In transparent mode it forwards the received packets, ignoring the MAC addresses.

RIC-LC can be managed locally via an ASCII terminal connected to RS-232. Remote inband management is performed via the E1 ports using Telnet, Web browser or RADview, RADís SNMP-based management system that ensure safe and secure access control.
Out-of-band management is performed via one of the user Ethernet ports.

E1 loops are immediately detected when they occur, avoiding the resulting Ethernet loops and Ethernet storms. The RAD-LC automatically recovers when the TDM loop clears.
Extending Ethernet Services over multiple E1 circuits
If a failure is detected on the E1 port, the fault propagation mechanism deactivates the Fast Ethernet links, enabling routers and switches on both ends of the link to reroute the traffic.

RIC-LC diagnostic capabilities include:
- Ping test for checking IP connectivity
- User-activated diagnostic loopback tests on VCG or individual E1 generated using management software or rear-panel DIP switch.
