Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading provider of embedded wireless infrastructure solutions, today announced the addition of a carrier-grade network appliance platform based on server class Intel® processors to its rich portfolio of telecom products. Radisys’ new RMS-220 is the first embedded solution that enables telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) to better address the unique requirements of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and networking applications by delivering a flexible design combined with powerful processing technology.
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 network. TEMs need breadth and 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 TEMs 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 very limited in their ability to address networking solution requirements. 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 leading policy control solutions provider.Radisys’ carrier-grade network appliance platform is designed with both flexibility and serviceability in mind. 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.
