The Kenton Group Helps RAD Bring Innovative Game Changer to the Ethernet Demarcation Device Market

The Kenton Group has today announced the availability of a new SFP (small-form-factor) Ethernet Network Interface Device (NID) which has been hailed a game changer within the Ethernet Demarcation market. At only 7cm in length, RAD Data Communications' new Micro NID (MiNID) is a highly intelligent solution that plugs into the SFP cage of any host unit, and has been specifically designed to reduce costs, eliminate operational pain points and eradicate the need for multiple pieces of equipment.

RAD's MiNID is non-invasive, non-disruptive and is extremely easy to install and maintain. Minimising power consumption and eliminating the need for additional equipment and rack space, the solution significantly reduces installation and deployment overheads and lowers the overall total cost of ownership. The MiNID is ideal for mobile backhaul service assurance, shared wholesale/service provider functionality in out-of-footprint Ethernet service deployments, Carrier Ethernet enhancement for Ethernet switches, and Ethernet transport monitoring for IP services.

Lee Palmer, Commercial Director at The Kenton Group, comments: "Previously carriers and operators have had to rely on multi-box deployments, however the MiNID complements existing equipment which offers considerable savings and benefits. Its compact size reduces storage costs and is ideal for small cell backhaul applications, as well as virtual private networks and carrier-wholesale provider network termination."

The MiNID offers real time network performance reports with per-Class Of Service SLA definition and can be used with various fibre types - single mode, multi-mode and electrical SFPs. The solution can handle up to 1 Gbps of Ethernet traffic and features per-port and per-flow monitoring capabilities, including Ethernet OAM loopbacks, and can be remotely managed independently managed from its hosting device or integrated with its hosting device so that they act together and appear as single unit.

"Carrier Ethernet should be profitable, not painful. In tandem with RAD's full performance monitoring suite of solutions, deployment of the MiNID turns Carrier Ethernet into a more profitable service, eliminating many of the operational pain points that service providers currently experience," states Amir Karo, Vice President of Marketing at RAD Data Communications.

The MiNID was shortlisted for a Leading Light Award in the "Best New Product (Telecom)" category, which recognise companies that have developed potentially market-leading products that, through engineering and technical excellence, enable the deployment of profitable next-generation telecom services.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
