These awards are given to the most innovative products that facilitate voice, data and video communications, or combinations thereof.
Featuring the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor LV 5138, the RadiSys (News - Alert) MPCBL0050 single board computer (SBC
) combines Intel 64 Technology+ (Intel 64) with dual-core, dual processing capabilities for a total of four processor cores on a single platform. This fifth-generation product provides performance boost, superior subsystem scalability and density.
This fifth-generation design achieves significant performance improvements for compute-intensive and database-access applications including IP
Multimedia Subsystems (IMS), wireless control plane, and IPTV (News - Alert). RadiSys Promentum MPCBL0050 is optimized to support first-generation AdvancedTCA chassis that limit front-board power to less than 200W. In addition, the product also interoperates with AdvancedTCA products from RadiSys and with third-party building blocks meeting the PICMG 3.0 specification.
RadiSys has also won the award for its Promentum ATCA-7220, an AdvancedTCA packet processing blade that provides highest available Gigabit Ethernet
density and throughput. This product incorporates two Cavium Networks (News - Alert) OCTEON Plus multi-core processors boasting a powerful architecture to be used for intense packet processing application with or without I/O. On-board 10 Gigabit and 1 Gigabit Ethernet switching allows powerful and flexible data flow for sophisticated security processing and traffic handling.
Thanks to its AdvancedTCA form factor, the ATCA-7220 is ideal for use in carrier grade network elements such as security, media gateways and high bandwidth RNC and other network elements in wireless and broadband infrastructure.
