Adax PacketRunner: Intelligent ATCA Carrier Blade

User & Control Plane processing for LTE, 4G, NGMN and IMS networks

The Adax PacketRunner (APR) is an intelligent ATCA carrier blade for process intensive telecom applications. It has 4 AMC bays to take any combination of Adax or other industry standard mid-size AMC cards. The on-board Cavium OCTEON 5650 multi-core processor, memory and cache, gives developers a high performance, highly flexible and scalable blade for LTE, 4G, IMS and Next Generation Mobile telecom networks. The APR delivers the perfect ATCA subsystem for user and control plane applications.

APR Features

  • Cavium OCTEON Plus CN5650, 12 cores at 750MHz
    • Option for CN5430, 4 cores* at 700 MHz
  • 4 AMC bays for Adax and/or 3rd party mid-size AMC cards
  • 2 GB of DDR2 Memory
    • Options for 4 GB and 8 GB DDR2 Memory
  • Robust power & thermal management
  • Ethernet Switch with:
    • 2x 10 GbE to the system Fabric domain
    • 2x 1 GbE to the system Base domain
    • 10 GbE from Cavium to Ethernet switch
    • 16x GbE, 4x 1GbE to each AMC bay

Configuration Options

Signaling Gateway: The AdaxGW has been integrated to the APR with outstanding results and it can be configured and reconfigured to meet any signaling requirement. With options for SS7/IP switching, routing, tunneling and back-haul, the AdaxGW provides a simple and straightforward migration of existing SS7 nodes to IP transport. The AdaxGW utilizes SIGTRAN protocols including M2PA, M2UA, M3UA and SUA to perform the SS7/IP and IP/IP translation function in many different ways.

ATM-IP Interworking: This option keeps the price point low with the 4-core* Cavium, however it adds a full-featured Ethernet switch to support 10 GbE IP connectivity to the system Fabric domain.

Packet Processing/CE: Enhanced Packet Processing and Carrier Ethernet for deterministic IP Transport are added for this option via a 12-core Cavium processor, with up to 16 Copper or Fiber GbEs via the RTM.

Legacy TDM: Designed for high-density, high-capacity SS7 narrowband or Annex A links or I-TDM. This configuration uses a low-end, 4-core* Cavium processor and direct Ethernet connections to the base domain. This option slashes the cost of high density I/O.

*Special Order Option
