SUNNYVALE & DALLAS, USA: eInfochips, an HP AllianceOne Partner and a Platinum Design Member in the TI Design Network, announced the introduction of its software defined VoIP platform for telecom VoIP transcoding.
This solution offers significant scalability for network equipment providers or cloud providers, and is based on the ultra-converged HP ProLiant Moonshot system that scales to 45 HP ProLiant m800 server cartridges - 720 ARM Cortex-A15 cores, and 1440 DSP cores - all with a single 4U HP Moonshot 1500 chassis. The industry-leading VoIP software is envisioned to be managed in a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) environment.
The HP Moonshot System is designed and tailored for specific workloads to deliver optimum performance. These low power servers share management, power, cooling, networking, and storage. This architecture is a key factor to achieve 8x efficiency at scale, and to enable a 3x faster innovation cycle.
The KeyStone-based 66K2Hx SoC from Texas Instruments (TI) is a high performance, power efficient processor including the C66x DSP which serves as an optimize compute platform for VoIP processing. The HP ProLiant m800 includes four 66K2Hx devices on a single cartridge, each with four ARM Cortex-A15 cores and eight C66x DSP cores.
In a fully configured HP Moonshot chassis it is estimated that more than 250K carrier grade AMR channels can be simultaneously processed -- leaving 720 ARM Cortex-A15 cores (180 GHz of processing power) available to support signaling and chassis management type requirements.
