IBus Platforms for SS7 Solutions

10/16/2002 - IBus announced that it has entered into an agreement with Ericsson, the world's market leader in mobile systems, to supply fully integrated computing platforms for Ericsson's signalling systems designed for Network Equipment Providers, Carriers and Service Providers.

The Sigtran product provides a turnkey signalling platform for integration in location-based solutions, messaging solutions, prepaid solutions, voice over IP solutions, softswitch solutions and other telecommunications applications. "I-Bus is pleased to add an Ericsson signalling solution to our Orion series of highly reliable, highly available computing platforms," said Johni Chan, President, IBus Corporation. "With our technologies leadership and our OEM support programs, we can deliver the highest availability and reliability solutions that SS7 requires."

IBus Introduces the Orion family product, the smallest form factor 18 slots NEBS compliant PICMG 2.16 CompactPCI platform with Compact Package Switching Backplane (cPSB) in the market today. Featuring dual redundant Ethernet switch solutions for both Pentium-based and UltraSPARCTM-based single board computer (SBC). IBus 2802 newly released SBC offers the highest performance dual Tualatin, low voltage PIII with DDR memory and dual Gigabit Ethernet for Windows and Linux. The Orion platform also support SPARC/Solaris technology-based solution from Sun Microsystems for both PICMG 2.16 and non-PICMG 2.16.

The Sigtran for Solaris SS7 features the Sun Microsystems NetraTM CP 2040 and NetraTM CP2060 Single Computer Boards supporting UltraSPARCTM processors operating up to 500MHz. The standard Sun CP20xx boards are NEBS Level 3 certified and operates with Sun Solaris 8 Operating System.

The IBus Orion-8U platform series is a carrier-grade NEBS compliant CompactPCI platform that delivers the "five nines" high availability requirements for the critical communications and networking applications. IBus is one of the industry's first computing platform providers to utilise the patented Fail-Safe OptiCoolTM technology, enabling higher density configurations in the minimum amount of rack space. The Orion platform also includes the option of up to 4 hot-swap, SCA SCSI hard drives for increase maintainability and serviceability, an IPMI compliant PICMG 2.9 System Management Controller with SNMP software options, four x 200W Hot-swap configured as N+1 redundant AC or DC power supplies with patented dual hot-swap isolated power input modules for power InfiniAvailabilityTM.

"The IBus patented Power Input Architecture together with all the high-availability features in the IBus computing platform can provide the Signalling platform a competitive advantage in applications requiring smaller form factor, optimised cooling, high density and the highest levels of reliability," added Johni Chan, "our Orion family product is the highest density cPCI platform with the greatest level of application availability, serviceability, and maintainability available in the market today."
