NTT Comware Shows SIP Server on Sun's Netra ATCA Blade Platform

NTT COMWARE demonstrated its next-generation SIP application server technology based on Sun's upcoming Netra ATCA (advanced telecom computing architecture) blade platform. This new platform is scheduled for release at the end of 2005. NTT COMWARE's SIP application server will use an UltraSPARC processor-based ATCA blade running Solaris 10 Operating System.

"Today we are demonstrating a major step toward enabling service providers to quickly deploy next generation voice, video and data services on our upcoming ATCA platform," said Raju Penumatcha, VP of Netra Systems and Networking (NSN), Sun Microsystems. "This demonstration validates the importance of Sun's ATCA strategy for high-performance, highly available next-generation telecom services that meet the demand of today's service providers."

Earlier this year, Sun announced that NMS Communications would be delivering its OpenAccess technology on Sun's upcoming ATCA platform. Concurrently, NMS Communications is announcing publicly its plans for delivering its ATCA standards-based OpenAccess products to the market.
