Interphase Selected for AdvancedTCA-Compliant SGSNs

Interphase has been selected by a prominent telecom equipment manufacturer to provide a variety of communications controllers for their first AdvancedTCA-compliant SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Node). This service-critical mobile core network element, which provides the continuity of data communication throughout the different cells of the mobile network, was recently announced at 3GSM World Congress 2005 in Cannes, and represents one of the world's first applications of AdvancedTCA-based network equipment.

The name of the telecom equipment manufacturer was not disclosed.

Interphase AdvancedTCA-compliant products featured in the SGSN platform include a quad-port rear access Gigabit Ethernet PMC network interface card, an OC-3/STM-1 PTMC/PMC module, a dual-port T1/E1/J1 rear access communications controller, and a custom-designed rear transition module to support the T1/E1/J1 and Gigabit Ethernet traffic through the back of the system.
