Time Warner Cable Selects RAD's Pseudowire for TDM over Metro Ethernet

Time Warner Cable has deployed RAD Data Communications' TDMoIP pseudowire technology to support its metro Ethernet service in its Houston, Texas market.

RAD's IPmux family of TDMoIP gateways enable customers to take advantage of Time Warner Cable's Ethernet services while providing integrated support for existing TDM services over the same Ethernet transport network. RAD's IPmux family supports TDMoIP pseudowires -- the ability to transparently transport TDM circuits such as T1 and T3 across Ethernet, IP or MPLS networks.

Cellular Backhaul

One of Time Warner Cable's first customers for integrated Ethernet and TDM access was a large, nationwide cellular telephone provider. With the Time Warner Cable service, operators have access to high bandwidth, low latency Ethernet connections for tower-to-MSC connectivity and use RAD's IPmux pseudowire solution to transport the TDM traffic across the same Ethernet link. Cellular traffic is extremely sensitive to latency and packet loss. RAD's ASIC-based IPmux ensures very low latency with jitter buffers starting at 0.5ms and adaptive clock recovery accurate to within 16 parts per billion. The link redundancy feature helps provide Time Warner Cable's customers with rapid failover and reliable TDM transport.

RAD said it has shipped over 30,0000 ports of its pseudowire solutions over the past several years.
