Radisys’ Telecom Cloud-Ready Platform Wins 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV Pioneer Award
|By Business Wire

Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless
infrastructure solutions, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated
media company, has awarded its telecom cloud-ready T-Series
T40 Ultra Platform a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV
Pioneer Award. The NFV Pioneer Award honors products that have
demonstrated innovation, unique features and noteworthy developments
toward realizing the benefits of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
OpenStack and OpenFlow enabled Radisys’ T-Series platforms are a
commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), open standards-based ATCA solution,
pre-configured with the latest Intel® silicon to meet operators’
high-performance requirements for Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and
NFV deployments. The T-Series platforms are virtualized using KVM-based
and VMWare ESXi hypervisors. Performance in virtualized environment is
further optimized using an implementation of Radisys’ vMRF (virtualized
Media Resource Function) and vEPC (virtualized Evolved Packet Core)
Designed for applications that require high density and high throughput
performance, the T40 Ultra delivers an ideal platform for telecom
equipment manufacturers, and their mobile operator customers, to deploy
high performance virtualized data plane applications, such as Deep
Packet Inspection-based Policy Control Enforcement Function (PCEF),
Lawful Intercept (LI), Media Optimization, Security and Parental
Control. The T40 Ultra also supports the latest packet processing
applications, such as Session Border Controllers and mobile gateways in
the 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC).
Wireline and Wireless Network Operators are seeking to deploy SDN and
NFV technologies to take advantage of the benefits of cloud technology
proven in the enterprise space, including scalability, increased service
velocity and reduced CapEx and OpEx. However, traditional
enterprise-class virtualization platforms are not always a good fit for
the telecom industry, creating a need for platforms designed to meet the
telecom-grade performance, reliability and data throughput requirements
for SDN and NFV. In addition, network traffic levels are exploding. A
typical smartphone can have 10 to15 active sessions at one time, many of
which might be real-time media packet flows. Given this, a carrier-scale
deployment of SDN and NFV will require platforms that can process
hundreds of millions of data plane flows simultaneously, across
thousands of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs).
Radisys’ pre-configured T40 Ultra platform delivers a carrier-grade
solution designed to deliver the high-performance, long-life and five
nines reliability essential to the telecom industry. The T40 Ultra can
process more than 1 Terabit of real-time broadband traffic, across
potentially hundreds of virtualized data plane VNFs and hosted across up
to 12 Intel multi-core processor blades optimized with Intel Data Plane
Development Kit (Intel DPDK). Mobile operators who deploy NFV solutions
using the T40 Ultra will accelerate their ability to introduce new
services based on SDN.
“Congratulations to Radisys for receiving a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY NFV
Pioneer Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The T-Series Ultra has
demonstrated true innovation and is leading the way for Network Function
Virtualization. I look forward to continued excellence from Radisys in
2014 and beyond.”
“We are honored to have our T-Series Ultra platform recognized as a
pioneer in the burgeoning field of SDN/NFV innovation,” said Keate
Despain, vice president, business development and platform product line
management, Radisys. “TEMS and mobile operators adopting the T-Series
Ultra can take advantage of Radisys’ technical and integration services
to accelerate their time-to-market and reduce development costs. The
T-Series Ultra platform delivers an accelerated path to NFV deployment,
providing the capabilities needed for a successful transition of core
network functions to the telecom cloud.”
About the T-Series Ultra Platform
The T-Series Ultra includes more than one Terabit of switching capacity
and the ability to deliver more than 288 Intel cores, making it the
highest performing telco-grade platform for SDN/NFV applications.
Ideally suited for data plane applications, it delivers a 50 percent
cost-per-bit reduction over 10G systems and provides TEMs with a new R&D
model – Infrastructure-as-a-Service, which allows them to focus solely
on building their application and transform the R&D expense associated
with the platform away from a fixed cost to a variable cost.
Fully verified and integrated, ready to use, 40G platform speeds
Multi-core packet processors, 40G Ethernet switch devices, and high
capacity 40GbE uplinks lower cost/bit and increase system density
Integrated Platform Management Software enables centralized software
upgrades, diagnostic capabilities, and platform monitoring for reduced
Common platform improves economies of scale – enables multiple
applications with single platform architecture
NEBS-ready, highly redundant architecture eliminate any single point
of failure and enables five nines (99.999%) network uptime
