RAD Supports Olympic Coverage for China Radio International

China Radio International (CRI) is using RAD Data Communications to enable it to transmit video on demand (VOD) from the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. CRI, which maintains a video server at the Olympics, recommended RAD's RIC-155GE Gigabit Ethernet over STM-1 network termination unit (NTU) to China Telecom as a reliable gateway for transmitting its Ethernet-based video feed over existing SDH lines to various provincial capitals, including Chengdu (in Sichuan), Xian (in Shaanxi) and Changsha (in Hunan).


Using virtual concatenation technology, the RIC-155GE maps the video streams into VC-4 containers for transport across long-haul fiber connections. CRI first deployed RAD's RIC-155GE in 2006 to run Ethernet-based video over traditional STM-1 circuits.http://www.rad.com
