Axerra Showcases AXN Pseudo-Wire Solution

Axerra Networks, a provider of circuit emulation and service emulation solutions, on Monday announced the availability of a full-service alternative to TDM access for mobile wireless operators, including those providing CDMA, EV-DO, GSM and UMTS services.

The Axerra AXN Pseudo-Wire solution meets wireless operators growing traffic requirements for backhaul of both voice and data services in packet-based radio access networks, according to the company.

The Axerra platform lets Ethernet service providers, cable MSOs, and ILECs use the capacity and flexibility of low-cost packet access networks as a full-service backhaul alternative to TDM access for both voice and data wireless services

Axerra is displaying its Pseudo-Wire solution this week at CTIA Wireless 2006. The product combines circuit emulation, Frame Relay/HDLC/PPP, and Ethernet pseudo-wires in one platform that has both n x T1 and Ethernet connections at the BTS to enable backhaul of every generation of wireless service, all over a single packet radio access network.

The need for Pseudo-Wire solutions in the radio access network is being accelerated by bandwidth-hungry data services like EV-DO, said Gil Biran, founder and COO of Axerra Networks. In addition, we are seeing an emerging trend to use cell sites as virtual PoPs that supports cellular backhaul and also enterprise service delivery from a single set of equipment. The time is right for pseudo-wires.
