T-100 Series Platform
About Radisys T-100 Platform
The Radisys T-100 Platform family is an ATCA-based 100G Platform that provides up to a 50 percent cost-per-bit reduction over its 40G predecessor systems 2 in a comparable form factor and simplifies service deployment. The T-100 Ultra Platform features a 14U, 14-slot, NEBS-ready chassis with over 2 terabits aggregate throughput, while the T-100 Pro features a 6U, 6-slot chassis with 640 Gbps throughput. All T-100 Platforms can be configured with full redundancy, exceeding the industry’s “five nines” availability targets. The T-100 also improves traffic throughput of 40G assets, enabling network operators to expand the capabilities of the core network, as needed, to meet emerging customer demands.
It also delivers flexibility and performance critical for keeping up with increasing high-speed mobile data traffic, ensuring the core network does not become the next choke point in the network. This solution demonstrates how Radisys employed the open architecture made available by ATCA to deliver true 100G over the back plane inside the chassis, thus satisfying the capacity requirements that 4G radio access networks will be placing on the network core.
Since operators do not want to be burdened by low-level hardware and software design, the T-100 is pre-integrated with virtualization, operating system, and security software, as well as a host of tools developed to accelerate application development. Lastly, the T-100 Platform provides telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) with a new R&D paradigm in the form of an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model that allows them to focus solely on building their application.
Virtualized Network Functions
Virtualizing session control for the growing volume of network data is challenging. Virtualizing the network processing against the actual data packets and media flows themselves is even tougher. Operators expect the functional efficiencies of COTS-virtualized platforms, with the reliability and performance of telco-grade equipment.
The new T-100 Series Platforms for SDN and NFV addresses these challenges, providing Mobile Network Operators, Telecom Equipment Manufacturers, and Independent Software Vendors with a complete platform solution that gives them the performance and economics they require, with advanced capabilities to help accelerate their product development to get their VNFs to market faster.
T-100 Series Platforms for SDN and NFV provides a scalable platform for creating and deploying virtualized network functions (VNF) within service providers NGCOs (Next Generation Central Offices), data centers and POPs. The platform includes the Radisys state-of-the-art A2470 NPX hub switch, as well as an industry-standard OpenFlow v1.3 interface and SDN forwarding function for integrated routing.
The T-100 Series Platforms for SDN and NFV allows developers to centralize load balancing, routing and traffic management on the hub slots. This simplifies the data paths, lowers latency and maximizes slots for Intel processor blades for high density Virtualized Network Function (VNF) processing.
