Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading provider of embedded wireless infrastructure solutions, today announced the addition of the T40, an ATCA-based 40G platform, to the Radisys T-Series family of ATCA solutions. Essential in helping operators profit from the explosion of new smart devices, Radisys’ T40 addresses operators’ need for efficient network elements that decrease delivery costs and improve performance. To support these operator demands, telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) must deliver their application on a COTS platform that inherently possesses these characteristics and provides the ability to increase their velocity to market.
The T40 platform is a telecom-grade system, built to Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) specifications, that is pre-integrated with the largest selection of ATCA blades, built on cutting-edge processors and software to provide a robust, high-performance solution that TEMs can deploy now. Radisys’ T40 platform with high-density input/output (I/O) and throughput delivers the necessary connectivity critical for keeping up with increasing access speeds and is customizable to support specialized applications for any telecommunications environment, including deep packet inspection (DPI), security and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) functions.
“We selected Radisys for the company’s application knowledge and expertise in dealing with these highly scalable systems where packet processing and load balancing are vital to our project success,” said Dr. Ismail Uzun, director of software engineering, C2Tech—a solution provider in information technologies. C2Tech selected the Radisys T40 platform for future product lines due to its ability to double the performance of C2Tech’s DPI deployments for traffic monitoring and policy enforcement functions.
Today’s operators are struggling with increasing profitability while driving improved customer experience. The T40 addresses operators’ struggle to increase service profitability by delivering a 50 percent cost-per-bit reduction over 10G systems. It also provides TEMs with a new R&D model—an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model—which allows them to focus solely on building their application. The combination of award-winning hardware, T-Series Management Software and Radisys’ long-standing integration expertise makes the T40 a complete, packaged offering and changes the R&D investment paradigm for TEMs.“As the number one supplier of global telecom platforms and ATCA solutions with 175 customer wins and counting, Radisys has the industry-leading expertise necessary to address the inherent risk TEMs assume when investing R&D resources in the hardware and software development and integration environment,” said Keate Despain, vice president and general manager, platforms, Radisys. “The T40 is a complete, integrated platform that enables our customers to alter their R&D profile and focus their efforts on application development in order to increase service revenue—transforming the R&D expense associated with the platform away from a fixed cost to a variable cost.”
