Ortiva Wireless Selects Continuous Computings FlexTCA 40G Platform for Next Generation Video Optimization Gateway

FlexTCA 40G Platform Driving Significant Performance and Capacity Improvement for Ortiva Wireless.

LAS VEGAS – CTIA WIRELESS – March 23, 2010 – Continuous Computing, the global provider of integrated platform solutions that address the mobile broadband capacity challenge, today announced that Ortiva Wireless has selected its FlexTCA 40G wireless and packet processing platform for use with the company’s internet Video Optimization Gateway (iVOG) for advanced internet video optimization. FlexTCA 40G is the industry’s most advanced, high-performance switching and multi-core processing platform that meets all AdvancedTCA (ATCA) specifications and can be upgraded easily to meet future performance requirements. Mobile video is the fastest growing traffic on mobile networks and Continuous Computing’s FlexTCA 40G platform is uniquely designed to help network equipment providers like Ortiva quickly address the challenges wireless operators are facing in managing the explosion of video traffic on the network.

By optimizing multimedia content over 3G/4G wireless data networks, Ortiva’s iVOG delivers an improved user experience, improves network efficiency and reduces bandwidth consumption. The iVOG distinguishes itself with its ability to dynamically adapt multimedia based upon real-time conditions in the mobile network, providing end users with a superior multimedia experience.

“Continuous Computing’s support for the highest-performing ATCA processing and the company’s ability to deliver a complete, integrated platform quickly to meet Ortiva’s aggressive schedule and customer requirements made them the only choice for us,” said Marc Zionts, chief executive officer, Ortiva Wireless. “We needed a solution with proven worldwide platform support along with a partner committed to Ortiva’s quality, performance and time-to-market commitments. Continuous Computing was able to meet and exceed our expectations.”

Key features of the FlexTCA 40G solution for Ortiva include:

  • Heavily-loaded 14-slot FlexChassis ATCA-SH141 populated with 10 FlexCompute ATCA-XE80 compute blades and two FlexCore ATCA-FM40 switches
  • Each XE80 single board computer boasts two of the highest performing Intel Xeon processor 5600 series “Westmere” CPU’s (E5645) available on an ATCA blade
  • Cooling-optimized chassis handles the substantial load of the max-performing compute blades

With the recent introduction of the 6-core Intel Xeon processor 5600 series, more and more video-based applications such as transcoding are migrating away from digital signal processors to high end x86 general compute processors.

Building on the success of earlier generations of its integrated telecom platform, software and services portfolio, Continuous Computing’s FlexTCA 40G provides not only the highest input/output (I/O) density and packet processing power of any ATCA solution available, but also establishes a new floor for customers’ cost per bit. By delivering sophisticated load balancing, traffic manipulation and distribution capabilities, FlexTCA 40G cuts network equipment providers’ development time, cost and risk for deploying next generation applications, including internet offload, traffic shaping, policy enforcement, network security, video and content delivery, and more.

“Continuous Computing is winning customers based on our ability to support the very highest levels of ATCA processing performance and deliver that power in a fully-integrated, application-ready platform,” said Mike Dagenais, president and chief executive officer, Continuous Computing. “Having just launched our FlexTCA 40G offering last month, we are extremely excited to already have our first customer win and expect many more.”

Continuous Computing’s FlexTCA 40G platforms are available now. Strong deployment candidates include network elements such as Serving / Gateway GPRS Support Node (SGSN / GGSN) and Access Service Network (ASN) Gateway in 3G wireless networks; and Packet Data Network Gateway (PGW), Serving Gateway (SGW) and Mobility Management Entity (MME) in the LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC).
