RadiSys Intros New Media Processing Blade

By Mae Kowalke, TMCnet Contributor

RadiSys (News - Alert) Corporation, a company that specializes in embedded computing solutions based on Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) standards, introduced a new media processing blade for its Convedia CMS-9000 Media Server.
The Media Processing Card IV (MPC-IV) from RadiSys is designed to deliver the capacity and performance improvements demanded by processing-intensive applications like video and conferencing. RadiSys claims this new card turns CMS-9000 into the industry’s higher-port-capacity server with the lowest price per port for the most demanding media processing apps.
In its announcement, RadiSys explained that the CMS-9000 media server, introduced earlier in 2007, was designed to handle modular capacity upgrades like MPC-IV. The card improves upon CMS-9000’s Media Processing Card III hardware, adding up to 24,000 ports of processing power—representing a 30 percent capacity improvement over RadiSys’ first-generation CMS-6000 systems.
VoIP and IMS solution vendors and their service provider customers continue to fuel a demand for open, standards-based audio and video media processing horsepower in their solutions and networks,” noted Stéphane Téral, principal analyst at Infonetics Research, in a statement. “Vendors like RadiSys who continue to offer improved capacity and performance benchmarks are well positioned to maintain their market leadership in IP media processing products and technology.”
RadiSys said the MPC-IV card can be hosted on both CMS-9000 and CMS-6000 systems; it is 100 percent backwards-compatible with the company’s media processing, redundancy, management and control features and interfaces.
Peter Briscoe, general manager at RadiSys’ media server business unit, said the company’s research and development team is continually driven to stay on the forefront of IP media processing technology and products. Innovation is driven by VoIP and IMS conferencing and video media processing requirements.
 “Our new MPC-IV product harnesses DSP power for carrier-class IP media processing applications, resulting in the highest capacity and price performance in the IP media server market today,” Briscoe said in a statement. “RadiSys looks forward to introducing these improved capabilities into our ecosystem partner solutions and customer networks to further improve the economics for accelerated adoption of enhanced voice and video services in next-generation IP communication networks.”
