Adax Announces Carrier-Grade Platforms Ready for Highly Demanding Telecoms Applications
Completely Integrated Ready for Application Value-Add Development
February 21st, 2012, Oakland CA â Adax (www.adax.com), an industry leader in high-performance packet-processing, security and network infrastructure, now offers a range of integrated platforms that are truly âApplication Readyâ allowing customers to concentrate on their core business; application development. Those applications are the value-add which enables those customers to differentiate themselves from the competition and enable them to deliver complete solutions that reduce both CAPEX and OPEX with a fast time to market. Example applications for these systems include Internet Offload Gateways, LTE-EPC nodes such as SGW, PGW, MME, PCRF and more.
There was a time when a product differentiated itself at the hardware level and cost, integration and performance prompted people to take âBest of Breedâ COTS components and build their own systems. Today differentiation comes primarily from the application and customers want to concentrate on their core application development without having to worry about how to implement a Highly Available, Scalable, High Performance solution.
The range of cost-effective 2, 6 and 12 slot Application Ready Platforms delivers the industryâs lowest cost per slot. By uniquely compressing the dual switch and shelf managers into a small combined module the 6 slot chassis offers 6 payload slots rather than the traditional 4. This means 50% more revenue generating slots than other comparable platforms. With a smaller footprint than comparable systems they are also greener, more energy efficient,
The Adax Application Ready Platform integrates the industry leading Ethernet switch technology from ZNYX that goes far beyond simple Ethernet switch management. Using familiar, industry-standard Linux interfaces the field proven OpenArchitectÂŽ provides Linux-enabled flexibility in management protocols, configuration, load balancing and high-availability features. Continuous âfive ninesâ operation is an absolute requirement in most networks and instead of convergence in seconds or minutes as is typical for STP/RSTP failover schemes, OpenArchitect/HA can fail-over in milliseconds, often faster than the dual-SONET standard of 50 milliseconds.
âAdax has a long history anticipating and responding to new market requirements,â said Drew Sproul, Director, Marketing, Adax Inc. âApplication Ready Platforms is another example of Adax assisting our customers in meeting their technical and business goals in the most efficient and economical way. We have seen how supplying pre-integrated platforms get things done faster and better. We are very pleased to offer this service to the general market.â
