The Positron Access AK624RU Ethernet Access Device (EAD) is a cost-effective universal CPE with support for multi-pair Bonded VDSL2 Ethernet over Copper (EoCU) and Gigabit Fiber. This solution facilitates the delivery of Managed Ethernet Services for business customers, small cell backhaul and other demanding applications. The AK624RU facilitates the provisioning, monitoring and control of end-to-end Ethernet services with comprehensive support for SLA reporting.
The FlexStream AK624RU is specifically designed as a carrier grade solution to provide Ethernet services for small cell backhaul, business internet access, MTU/MDU, L2 VPN, streamed video and Gigabit connectivity. It is environmentally hardened to provide operators the flexibility to place the units inside a building or in an outside plant cabinet.
The AK624RU is a standard-based 8 pair VDSL2 and ADSL2+ EAD which provides network operators the means to deliver advanced Ethernet over Bonded Copper services to business customers at minimal cost over their existing copper infrastructure. The AK624RU is fully standard compliant and interoperates with leading 3rd party DSLAM from Alcatel-Lucent, Calix, Adtran, Huawei and others.
The AK624RU delivers WAN bandwidth up to 800 Mbps over EoCU or up to Gigabit Ethernet over its optical SFP port. As such, it offers a seamless migration to Gigabit Ethernet while preserving the same advanced features and management capabilities. The optical port of the AK624RU EAD is configurable in WAN or LAN mode.
At the heart of this platform is an advanced multi-pair bonded network interface supporting VDSL2 and ADSL2+ with a high performance Ethernet switch/router core incorporating Layer 2 and Layer 3 Quality of Service and packet forwarding capabilities. All Ethernet ports connected to the Switch/Router core support Gigabit Ethernet speeds.
The Layer 3 IP features of the AK624RU are ideal to handle Public and Private IP address translation in a flattened L2 network infrastructure to deliver Carrier Ethernet, Internet and IP services with one device.
The AK624RU delivers Ethernet services such as Ethernet Private Lines (EPL and EVPL) and Ethernet Private LAN services (EP-LAN and EVP-LAN) in compliance with the Metro Ethernet Forum standard CE 1.0 (MEF 9 and MEF 14).
Monitoring quality and availability of every dataflow as part of the carrier Ethernet service is achieved with TWAMP (RFC 6038).
The AK624RU fits in any managed environment and supports all the common management interfaces such as SNMP, SSH, HTTP and HTTPS.
