Patton (News - Alert) Electronics Company, a multi-national organization that designs, develops, and manufactures electronic communications equipment, will be integrating the eXtremeDB IMDS across its range of IPLink IP router and SmartNode voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology.
eXtremeDB In-Memory Database System (IMDS) is developed by McObject (News - Alert), a provider of data management technology that makes applications and devices smarter.
McObject explained that the eXtremeDB is an ultra-small footprint, in-memory database system (IMDS) designed explicitly for real-time applications and for embedded systems such as set-top boxes, telecom equipment, consumer electronics and other connected gear. The eXtremeDB real-time database minimizes RAM (News - Alert) and CPU demands and offers unmatched performance, reliability and development flexibility.
After the abovementioned integration, eXtremeDB will reside in dozens of Patton’s networking devices, including the IPLink line of T1, broadband and DSL routers as well as the Patton’s SmartNode session border controller technology for VoIP.
Patton’s IPLink high-speed IP-router solutions give enterprises and remote offices a reliable way to ‘link up for less’. Each IPLink router packs powerful IP-router protocol & security features into an affordable, easy-to-use, and surprisingly compact low-cost broadband router.
TMCnet reported that Patton’s SmartNode gateways provide organizations with next-generation VoIP technologies that can be integrated with existing digital ISDN and analog POTS infrastructures. This type of technology is ideal in today's market because most companies refrain from completely replacing their existing voice networks when deploying a unified communication solution.
Officials with Patton commented that they reviewed several off-the-shelf embedded database solutions, and found eXtremeDB to most closely fit with what they wanted to do. eXtremeDB delivered scalability and low overhead, and a key deciding factor between the systems they reviewed was the event notifications feature that eXtremeDB provides. It was critical for them to have a change from one process trigger an event in another process.
McObject claimed that it developed eXtremeDB from scratch to satisfy this sector’s stringent demands, and feedback from customers in telecom and networking has helped the company to continuously improve its performance, reliability and developer flexibility.
