Radisys Delivers Large Scale Media Processing for VoLTE

Radisys introduced a new high-capacity MPH6 media processing card for its MPX-12000 Broadband Media Resource Function (MRF).

The new blade is specifically designed to support the processing requirements for large deployments of real-time telecommunication services, including Voice over LTE (VoLTE), high definition (HD) video conferencing, and high capacity multimedia transcoding services.

VoLTE enabled mobile phones and tablets that use HD audio (AMR-Wideband) codecs will require connectivity with GSM, CDMA or PSTN endpoints that use legacy codecs including AMR Narrowband (AMR-NB), EVRC or G.711. This will require the underlying IMS services infrastructure to have scalable, economical and high capacity transcoding capabilities to interconnect new VoLTE devices to legacy handsets and subscribers.

Radisys said its new card, based on the latest multicore Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, delivers industry-leading DSP power for processor intensive media stream manipulation, enabling large scale, economical real-time HD communication services utilizing a broad range of HD audio and video codecs including H.264, VP8, and AMR-WB.  It also leverages the MPX-12000 fault-resilient architecture for service reliability, including preserving active sessions for call continuity, customer satisfaction and revenue assurance.

“Radisys is a leading provider of media processing platforms and is deployed today in VoLTE networks and trials around the globe,” said Grant Henderson, vice president of marketing and product management, Radisys. “Our flagship MPX-12000 combined with the MPH6 delivers the highest capacity IP media processing platform on the market for communication equipment providers and operators, not only for multimedia transcoding, but for a broad range of IMS and web communication services.”

The Radisys MPX-12000 is a Broadband Media Processing platform for large LTE IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network deployments.

The MPX-12000, which is based on Radisys 40G ATCA open platform technologies, is specifically designed to provide mobile and IMS network operators the capacities, capabilities and reliability essential for monetizing real-time wireless broadband communications, including mobile video and voice over LTE (VoLTE). The platform performs the Multimedia Resource Function (MRF) in LTE IMS networks.
