By Telecom Lead Team: Radisys Corporation, a provider of
embedded wireless infrastructure solutions, announced the addition of a
carrier-grade network appliance platform based on Intel processors to its
Radisys’ carrier-grade network appliance platform is
designed with both flexibility and serviceability. The RMS-220 allows up to
four front I/O modules, five front storage modules (HDD or SSD), redundant AC
or DC power supply units (PSUs) and front serviceable fans that can be replaced
in the field without de-racking the system. This simplifies SKU management and
reduces supply chain complexity and cost.
Radisys’ new RMS-220 embedded solution enables telecom
equipment manufacturers to better address the requirements of Deep Packet Inspection
(DPI) and networking applications by delivering a flexible design combined with
powerful processing technology.
Radisys has more than 20 years of experience delivering
innovative embedded products and a successful track record for providing our customers
with the tools they need to develop competitive, differentiated solutions,”
said Keate Despain, vice president and general manager, platforms, Radisys.
Network operators are turning to DPI-based and network
monitoring applications such as policy enforcement, lawful intercept security,
network probe and others in order to optimize bandwidth while monetizing their
Telecom equipment makers need scalability in their
solution to address these requirements. RMS-220 further strengthens Radisys’ platform
portfolio to deliver both, allowing TEMs the platform breadth and scalability
to deploy across access, edge and core networks.
The Radisys RMS-220 provides equipment makers with a 2U
high, 20-inch deep form factor that delivers a unique combination of
flexibility and serviceability. The innovative design includes front
input/output (I/O) that also supports Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS)
guidelines and dual server class Intel processors.
Current rackmount servers are limited in their ability
to address networking solution needs. Field configurability of I/O, storage,
and power supply without de-racking the system, and minimization of service
downtime with hotswap capabilities can translate to significant reductions in
operational cost and complexity. This coupled with high performance in a NEBS
compliant short-depth form factor is very compelling,” said Anand Uppili, chief
executive officer of Torres Networks, a policy control solutions provider.
