Moving to IP-based Telco Applications

IP-based telecom applications offer many exciting new opportunities as the convergence of circuit-switched, wireless and packet switched networks accelerates. With these opportunities comes the challenge of migrating telco applications from deterministic signaling architectures (such as PCI) and time division multiplexed (TDM) data buses like H.110 to packet-based architectures and, more pointedly, IP networks. This paper will examine a variety of system architectures being used to develop packet switched platforms to meet this challenge.

The primary audience for this document is technical decision-makers and engineers using Intel® IA/IXA/XScale hardware and application programming interfaces (APIs) to design solutions around packet switched products and platforms. Developers of telecommunications infrastructure equipment, with an eye to providing lower cost, standards-driven IP-based services in order to enhance or compete with traditional, higher-cost circuit-switched services, will also be interested.

Readers will benefit from a basic familiarity with telecom switching systems, computer telephony, TDM buses (such as H.100 or H.110), CompactPCI, switched fabrics such as Ethernet or InfiniBand, and system and application design.
