ATCA box vendor adds open high-availability software

Oct 18, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

Network equipment provider (NEP) RadiSys will resell and support high availability middleware and tools from OpenClovis, “pre-integrating” them with its Promentum family of modular, ATCA-compliant, Linux-based “application-ready” hardware. The integrated RadiSys/OpenClovis products target application servers, RNC/BSC, media gateway, security gateway, IPTV, 3G/WiMAX, and IMS core elements.

RadiSys says the deal will enable it to serve as a “single source” for both the high-availability and ATCA requirements of telecommunications equipment manufacturers (TEMs). Radisys also resells and supports MontaVista Linux on its Promentum line.

The RadiSys Promentum line comprises the company's original Sys-6000 ATCA chassis (pictured top-of-page), flagship Sys-6010 system, and half-size Sys-6006 chassis, along with about 10 different blade-based switch modules, processing modules, line cards, and disk modules that can be flexibly assembled to create “a common platform for network element and data plane applications,” RadiSys says.

OpenClovis says its “standards-aware” Application Service Platform (ASP) is available pre-integrated with Linux distributions from MontaVista, Wind River, and Red Hat. The Platform is available under the GPL for non-commercial applications, including proofs-of-concepts and prototyping.

According to RadiSys CEO Scott Grout, “RadiSys ATCA platforms pre-integrated with OpenClovis software enable equipment providers to focus their resources on building high-value differentiated applications rather than basic protocols and platform management solutions.”


Radisys's Promentum line with OpenClovis ASP appears to be available now.
