Rad Group

Rad Group

The RAD Group is a collection of independent companies that develop, manufacture and market solutions for diverse segments of the networking and telecommunications industry.

Each company operates independently, without a holding company, but is guided by the group founders under a collective strategic umbrella. Companies share technology, engage in joint marketing activities and benefit from a common management structure.

Six RAD Group companies are traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market in the U.S.:" [http://quotes.nasdaq.com/asp/SummaryQuote.asp?symbol=RVSN&selected=RVSN RADVISION] ", " [http://quotes.nasdaq.com/Quote.dll?page=multi&mode=stock&symbol=CRNT Ceragon Networks] ", " [http://quotes.nasdaq.com/Quote.dll?page=multi&mode=stock&symbol=RDWR Radware] ", " [http://quotes.nasdaq.com/Quote.dll?page=multi&mode=stock&symbol=RITT RiT Technologies] ", " [http://quotes.nasdaq.com/Quote.dll?page=multi&mode=stock&symbol=RDCM RADCOM] ", and " [http://quotes.nasdaq.com/Quote.dll?page=multi&mode=stock&symbol=SILC Silicom] ". The others are privately held by the Group's founders and several venture capital firms.


The RAD Group was founded in 1984 by Zohar Zisapel and his brother Yehuda. Zohar is often called the "Bill Gates" of Israel (references: [http://money.cnn.com/magazines/business2/business2_archive/2005/08/01/8269672/index.htm CNN Money article] ; [http://www.innovationspublishing.com/georgia/loadarticle.asp?id=123 Innovations Publishing article] ). Zohar had this to say about the main goals of the RAD Group: “The RAD Group’s decentralized approach maximizes the advantages inherent in smaller business units - such as flexibility and entrepreneurial spirit - while allowing member companies to share mutually beneficial developments and fostering innovations.”


RAD Group companies have won many awards including the Business Red Herring, Internet Telephony Conference "Best in Show", Editor's Choice Awards from several Industry Magazines like Network Computing Magazine. RAD Group also sponsors [http://www.rad.com/Home/0,6583,5847,00.html RAD University] and [http://www.protocols.com Protocols.com] leading student sites for network and computer science information and reference materials.
