Emerson Targets Media Gateways

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced its first media-gateway-on-a-blade enabler based on AdvancedTCA® technology. The ATCA-8310 is the first ATCA® blade in the industry to include a DSP array, an Intel® Core™ i7 processor and a Freescale QorIQ™ P4080 device on the same blade. It also features the highest density of DSPs on a single ATCA blade in the industry, having up to 30 Texas Instruments (TI) TMS320TCI6486 devices. The ATCA-8310 enables a range of telecom infrastructure applications such as voice-over-IP (VoIP) media gateways, mobile video transcoders and IPTV to take advantage of open standard ATCA technology from one of the industry's top ATCA technology providers.

Following in the footsteps of Emerson Network Power's highly successful and innovative line of media processing blades based on CompactPCI® technology, the ATCA-8310 uses a modular design that allows telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) to configure options to suit their application and to offer low entry cost and pay-as-you-grow options for their users. Architected to take advantage of next-generation TI TNETV DSPs for density and cost-per-channel improvements, this modular approach also helps to future-proof customers' investment.

"As ATCA technology has matured to the point of becoming the defacto starting point for many telecom infrastructure projects, highly integrated blades such as Emerson Network Power's ATCA-8310 help to extend the benefits of open standards to an increasing range of applications," said Simon Stanley, Analyst at Large, Heavy Reading and Principal Consultant, Earlswood Marketing. "With a uniquely flexible mix of processing technologies, this new blade enables network equipment makers to consolidate functionality onto fewer blades and maximize their revenue-generating potential."
