Veraz Networks Offers Sun Netra T2000 Softswitch

Veraz Networks has begun deploying its ControlSwitch and iMN Multimedia Delivery Platform softswitch and IMS solutions on Sun Microsystems' Sun Netra T2000 server powered by the UltraSPARC T1 processor. Veraz has been collaborating with Sun for several years deploying its solutions on earlier versions of Sun's industry leading telecom grade servers including the Sun Netra 240.

The Netra T2000 server's multi-core, multi-threaded processing architecture when combined with the virtualization capabilities of the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS) offers 3 to 5 times the performance of the Netra 240.

Veraz said a Sun Netra T2000 implementation substantially reduces the required number of servers for a given deployment, dramatically lowering a service provider's capital and operating costs. For example, a deployment scaled to support 72,000 concurrent sessions, which would have required at least 25 Netra 240 servers, can now be built using just 4 Netra T2000 servers. This reduces the rack space required by 84%, reduces the power required by 87% and reduces the number of Ethernet ports by over 70%.
