Dialogic Boosts Multimedia
The platform integrates an extended implementation of Dialogic’s Host Media Processing (HMP) software with an AdvancedTCA single board computer that includes two Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® LV 2.0 GHz processors designed to boost multitasking computing power. An Advanced Mezzanine Card (AdvancedMC*) is used for echo cancellation and transcoding offload, which significantly enhances media processing performance, especially when low-bit-rate audio coders are required at high-density levels. This combination of media processing power, together with over 30 GB of hard disk storage, means the platform has the capacity to run applications locally on the same blade as an alternative to supporting them remotely over IP connections.
“Our customers are looking for a path to higher density media solutions that will allow them to deliver their unique application services into the demanding environment of carriers,” stated Jim Machi, Vice President of Marketing for Dialogic. The media platform not only realizes the scalability demanded in the Service Provider market but does so with leading price-performance. Machi explained: “By assigning processor-intensive operations to the mezzanine card we leave more power for host media processing. And because the core processing algorithms are hosted on the CPU, we have the flexibility to meet ever increasing functional, operational and mobility demands through software-only revisions.”
