Product Announcement from Emerson Network Power Embedded Computing
The ATCA-8310 from Emerson Network Power is a state-of-the-art AdvancedTCA® DSP/Media Processing platform designed to provide power-efficient, high-density voice and video transcoding functions. The blade features a uniquely flexible mix of processing technologies to support:
- "DSP farm" architectures for scalable voice and video gateways based on multiple ATCA-8310 blades, featuring a high processing density with up to 180 DSP cores on a single blade.
- "Gateway-on-a-blade" architectures for small systems with just one or two ATCA-8310 blades, providing DSP functionality, packet processing functionality and an Intel® CPU all on each blade.
- "Pay-as-you-grow" capability with field-upgradeable DSP expansion options. The ATCA-8310 is optimized for IP to IP applications, but may be adapted to support legacy TDM applications in specific customer configurations using a range of TDM rear transition modules (RTMs), including variants with multiple OC/3 and OC/12 line terminations.
In a fully expanded voice configuration, the ATCA-8310 is capable of handling over 8000 channels of TDM to compressed (G.729AB) Voice over IP conversion including tone detection and echo cancellation, or over 6000 channels of GSM-AMR mobile voice transcode in a single ATCA slot. The ATCA-8310 is also ready for video transcode and transrate applications, estimated to be able to handle up to 350 individual mobile video streams per slot.
