RAD RIC-155 Fast Ethernet over STM-1/OC-3 Converter


 Connects 10/100BaseT LANs over STM-1/OC-3 circuits
 MAC filtering and VLAN aware bridging
 SNMP fault management, Web-based element management
 Simple and low cost
 Fiber optic and coax SDH/SONET interfaces
RIC-155 is an intelligent converter enabling simple, efficient and cost-effective bridging of Fast Ethernet traffic over STM-1/OC-3 lines. The product?s unique features make it ideal for the following applications:

? connecting large enterprises over SDH/SONET

? transporting Fast Ethernet traffic over 155 Mbps microwave links

? replacing expensive STM-1/OC-3 router interfaces

? backhauling IP traffic between POPs


VLAN bridging is supported, enabling enterprises to maintain network segmentation and allowing service providers to ensure customer data security.


Coax interface and a large variety of optical modules enable standard connection to other STM-1/OC-3 devices.


RADview Lite ? RADs? new RADview service package ? provides SNMP fault management, including SNMP traps, status polling, and TFTP-based software and configuration download. Remote element management is available either through the ConfiguRAD Web-based application, or Telnet.


RIC-155 can be managed in-band, either locally, from the Fast Ethernet user port, or remotely, through the STM-1/OC-3 port.


The device can also be managed out-ofband via the craft port or a dedicated 10/100BaseT port.


Management traffic and user Ethernet traffic are transported together in the same Ethernet flow, separated by different VLANs. Complete separation between user traffic and the management traffic ensures management and user traffic security.


The device collects Ethernet physical layer and STM-1/OC-3 statistics, for monitoring the SDH/SONET connection and the Ethernet service. In cases of severe error conditions on the SDH/SONET interface, an optional fault propagation feature tears down the link integrity on the Ethernet port, indicating to the Ethernet network of the error conditions on the TDM network.


The RIC-155 is a 1U, half-19" wide non-modular box, with a rack mount option. It is available with an AC or DC power supply.
