NARAD NETWORKS/STRIX SYSTEMS CREATE WIRELESS SOLUTIONS.Narad Networks, Inc., the market-leading provider of FTTx solutions for bandwidth enhancement of HFC 1. (networking) HFC - Hybrid Fiber Coax.
2. (hardware) HFC - hydrofluorocarbon. cable systems, and Strix Systems, technology and market leader in wireless mesh networking, have announced successful interoperability testing of their complementary Carrier Ethernet solutions. The combined solution provides network operators with a new, high capacity, carrier class option for plant extension and wireless mesh See wireless mesh network. (Wi-Fi) backhaul for metro areas.
Testing of Narad's switched Ethernet-over-coax solution combined with Strix Outdoor Wireless System (OWS-2400) revealed exceptional performance exceeding an aggregate rate of 35Mb per second from end-to-end. This level of performance, previously not possible, gives operators the ability to offer high-speed Metro Ethernet Forum The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) was founded in 2002. It is a non-profit international industry consortium, dedicated to worldwide adoption of Carrier Ethernet networks and services. E-Line and E-LAN services over wireless mesh with coaxial cable used as backhaul. This solution also makes it possible to deliver new and enhanced mobile voice and video services to business and residential customers. In each case, the new services can be implemented without the need for costly new fiber construction.
"The Strix Systems solution not only solves the problem of extending services without costly network construction, but provides quality of service and virtual LAN Also called a "VLAN," it is a logical subgroup within a local area network that is created via software rather than manually moving cables in the wiring closet. It combines user stations and network devices into a single unit regardless of the physical LAN segment they are attached to and capabilities to deliver a multitude of services, with carrier class reliability options," said Michael Collette, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Narad Networks. "The combined solution will enable traditional cable operators to leverage existing HFC plant to deploy lucrative and highly competitive wireless solutions for commercial and residential end users. In the security market, integrators and resellers can greatly reduce Ethernet network construction costs by using the existing private cable infrastructure in campuses, hospitals, hotel and resort operators, municipalities operating housing projects, and military installations."
"Narad's ability to offer high capacity, symmetric Carrier Ethernet services over HFC plant adds flexibility to network design and lowers the cost of backhaul", said Nan Chen, VP Product Management and Marketing, Strix Systems. "The Narad solution turns existing coax cable See coaxial cable. systems and various facilities into an IP backbone. Strix Wireless Mesh Nodes can attach to IP -coax located at practically any customer site to enable greater deployment flexibility, increased reach and cost savings. The combination of the two maximizes savings for cable operators and security systems integrators."
Narad's new FTTxSWITCH(TM) product, part of its FTTx platform, supports Gigabit Ethernet over each of six fiber ports and 100Mbps Ethernet over each of four coaxial cable ports. The FTTxSWITCH can be deployed in Fiber To The Node Fiber to the node (FTTN), also called fiber to the neighborhood or fiber to the cabinet (FTTCab), is a telecommunication architecture based on fiber-optic cables run to a cabinet serving a neighborhood. (FTTN (Fiber To The Neighborhood or Fiber To The Node) See FTTC. ), Fiber To The Curb Fiber to the curb (FTTC), also called fibre to the kerb (FTTK), is a telecommunications system based on fiber-optic cables run to a platform that serves several customers. (FTTC (Fiber To The Curb) The installation of optical fiber to within several hundred feet of the home or office. At that point, the optics are converted into electronics for delivery into the premises, typically using DSL. ) and Fiber To The Premise (FTTP (Fiber To The Premises) The installation of optical fiber from the carrier directly into the home or office. Also called "fiber to the home" (FTTH). See PON and FTTC. See also FTP. ) configurations. The FTTxSWITCH will also support wireless access points and standard Ethernet cabling. The Narad switched Ethernet solution for the access network greatly amplifies the broadband capacity of HFC cable systems. Switched Ethernet over fiber can deliver up to 1 Gbps x 1 Gbps per end user. Switched Ethernet over coaxial cable can deliver up to 100 Mbps x 100 Mbps per end user.

An independent wireless mesh test, sponsored by Light Reading and completed in June 2006, found Strix's OWS 2400-30 delivers the best throughput and capacity and the greatest scalability for voice applications and mobility/roaming. Strix networks scale to 10 or more wireless hops with near-zero throughput loss and latency, enabling customers to deliver real-time applications with a minimum of wired connections for a given area, which reduces CapEx and OpEx.
About Narad Networks
Narad is the market-leading provider of FTTx solutions for bandwidth enhancement of HFC cable systems. The company 's switched broadband access solutions enable cable operators to leverage existing coaxial cable and flexibly use fiber and wireless media to deliver high capacity, high performance IP services, including voice, data, video, and enterprise networks. The company's QoS switches and service management software, along with its broad spectrum fiber and coax transmission technologies, support multi-gigabit transport for both commercial and residential customers. Narad's patented Ethernet-over-Coax solution meets the needs of coax-based users that have voice or data needs beyond that which cable modems can offer, while Narad's switched Ethernet-over-Fiber solution provides unprecedented IP capacity to fiber-based customers.
