Share Article

RadiSys Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading global provider of advanced embedded solutions, announced today a new media processing blade for the Convedia(R) CMS-9000 Media Server. The new Media Processing Card IV (MPC-IV) delivers capacity and performance improvements for processing-intensive applications such as conferencing, video and low bitrate codec. With the new MPC-IV blade, Convedia CMS-9000 Media Servers offer the industry's highest port capacity with lower price per port for the most demanding media processing applications.

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

    The Convedia CMS-9000 Media Server, announced last year and already deployed in customer production networks today, was designed from the outset to accommodate modular capacity upgrades. The new MPC-IV card adds additional Digital Signal Processor (DSP) resources to the original Media Processing Card III (MPC-III) hardware design, providing up to 24,000 ports of media processing power on the CMS-9000 platform, representing a 30 percent capacity improvement compared to the media processing cards in RadiSys' first generation CMS-6000 Media Server systems. The new MPC-IV card continues to offer the improved CPU power of the original MPC-III design for CPU-bound applications like VoiceXML IVR processing, while adding the additional DSP resources for improved conference mixing, video, low bitrate codec and transcoding capacity.

"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," said Stephane Teral, principal analyst, Infonetics Research, Inc. "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."

The new MPC-IV card is designed to be hosted in the CMS-9000 Media Server chassis, as well as CMS-6000 systems deployed with leading service providers around the globe. The new high-capacity media processing blade is 100 percent backward compatible with RadiSys media processing and redundancy features, management and control interfaces. The MPC-IV card has already completed NEBS Level 3 safety certification for telecommunications environments, while meeting Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) environmental standards for telecommunications equipment manufacturing.

"Sophisticated VoIP and IMS conferencing and video media processing requirements continue to drive our world-class R&D team to stay at the forefront of IP media processing technology and products," said Peter Briscoe, general manager of the media server business unit, RadiSys. "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. 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."
