Radisys Delivers DPI Network Appliance based on Intel

Radisys introduced an Intel-based, carrier-grade network appliance platform that enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) to better address the requirements of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) applications, including policy enforcement, lawful intercept security, network probe and others.

The Radisys RMS-220 uses a 2U high, 20-inch deep form factor for flexibility and serviceability. The design supports Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) guidelines and dual server class Intel processors. The design allows up to four front I/O modules, five front storage modules (HDD or SSD), redundant AC or DC power supply units (PSUs) and front serviceable fans that can be replaced in the field without de-racking the system. A broad range of configurations are available, including:

  • Front I/O port options including 32x 1 Gigabit Ethernet, 24x 10 Gigabit Ethernet and I/O bypass options

  • Up to 10TB of local storage

  • Broad range of co-processing options including NetLogic and Cavium processors

Radisys has more than 20 years of experience delivering innovative embedded products and a successful track record for providing our customers with the tools they need to develop competitive, differentiated solutions,�? said Keate Despain, vice president and general manager, platforms, Radisys. “The RMS-220 network appliance platform is a strong complement to Radisys’ long-standing ATCA product portfolio, expanding on the same embedded software and engineering expertise. We truly provide our customers with a one-stop-shop for their telecom infrastructure needs.�?

“Intel continues to make significant strides on multiple data plane vectors including raw throughput performance and performance per watt. The timing couldn’t be better for the telecom market to have an Intel architecture based Carrier Grade Network Appliance Platform that is designed and optimized for the rapidly growing DPI and networking applications segment. This is another example of a strong Intel partner ecosystem delivering innovative solutions with cutting-edge performance,�? said Rose Schooler, general manager, Intelligent Systems Group, Intel Corporation.
