Performance Technologies Rolls Out IPnexus CPC300 PTMC Carrier Blade

5/10/2005 - Performance Technologies (Nasdaq NM: PTIX), a leading developer of integrated systems, platforms, components and software, introduced the IPnexus® CPC300 Advanced PTMC Carrier Blade, allowing system integrators to flexibly create custom functionality by populating it with industry-standard modules to fulfill their specific application requirements.

The CPC300 can be used with a wide array of PTMC modules available today, ranging from telecom I/O cards, DSP cards or packet processing modules. Developers can then use the CPC300 and the NexusWareTM Core environment to yield equipment such as media and signaling gateways, wireless infrastructure equipment, IP media equipment, telecom switching/routing equipment and SS7 network elements.

The CPC300 comes equipped with NexusWare Core, Performance Technologies' Linux-based board support package (BSP) that provides a powerful development, integration and management environment. NexusWare Core features a suite of carrier-grade device drivers as well as an easy to use set of application programming interfaces (API) for access to onboard resources. Cross development support for Linux, Windows and Solaris platforms is also provided.

“The CPC300 is an ideal choice for developers looking for an intelligent platform that can be customized to accommodate their specific application requirements,” said Steve Wigent, access product manager for Performance Technologies. “This latest product rounds out our complete offering of TDM/IP processors.”

The CPC300 shares a common architectural design with the company’s CPC324 and CPC308 TDM/IP Edge Communications Processors, which provide fully programmable T1/E1/J1 interfaces and also allow system integrators to converge both legacy TDM and emerging IP networks onto a single sub-system. The CPC300 offers dual PTMC sites complying with the PICMG® 2.15 standard, powerful 667MHz PowerPC® processing capabilities, TCP acceleration hardware, an onboard Gigabit Ethernet switch and support for full throughput of H.110 and PICMG 2.16 backplanes.

Pricing for the CPC300 starts at $4,695, and it is available immediately.
