TEMPE, Ariz., 29 Oct. 2010. Emerson Network Power in Tempe, Ariz., is introducing the ATCA-8310 AdvancedTCA (ATCA) blade server for embedded computing in telecommunications applications that includes a digital signal processor (DSP) array, an Intel Core i7 processor and a Freescale QorIQ P4080 processor on the same blade.

The ATCA blade features as many as 30 Texas Instruments (TI) TMS320TCI6486 DSP devices, and enables as many as 14,400 channels of TDM/G.711 VoIP as used in access media gateways; 8,300 channels of TDM/G.729AB compressed VoIP as used in trunk media gateways; 6,300 channels of G.711/AMR as used extensively in mobile voice gateways; 360 channels of H.264 CIF mobile video transcoding as used in mobile video applications; and 120 channels of MPEG2/H.264 transcode used in IPTV applications.

The Emerson Network Power ATCA-8310 features as many as 30 TMS320TCI6486 DSPs distributed between the baseboard and two mezzanines. The Freescale QorIQ P4080 processor provides local management, switch control, security, IP forwarding, and load balancing.

The optional Intel Core i7 control plane processor adds the capability for local management and call agent for small systems or gateway-on-a-blade implementations. An optional solid state disk drive provides local mass storage for customer information and local media caches.

Optimized for IP-to-IP applications, the ATCA-8310 may be adapted to support TDM applications using rear transition modules. For more information contact Emerson Network Power embedded computing online at www.emersonnetworkpower.com.
