NMS Communications Introduces Industry's Highest Capacity T1 / E1 Trunk Interface for Tuesday 12 June 2001 PDF Print New CG 6100C Boosts On-Board Processing for IVR Applications and CAS/ISDN Signalling; Especially Valuable for Communications Equipment Providers Worldwide NMS Communications (NASDAQ: NMSS), the leading supplier of technology for tomorrow's networks, today announced the Convergence Generation™ (CG) 6100C Series - offering the industry's highest capacity and highest density digital interface for connecting to digital T1 / E1 trunks. Supporting up to 16 T1 / E1 interfaces per slot, the new CG 6100C delivers unprecedented expansion capacity and dramatically reduces cost per port for communications equipment providers that are building carrier-class switches, gateways and media servers for enhanced services. CG 6100C Series platforms plug into a standard CompactPCI® chassis, allowing developers to quickly create highly scalable enhanced services equipment that handles interactive voice response (IVR), switching and fax functionality. Because the platforms are specifically designed to connect to T1 and E1 trunks, the CG 6100C helps global communications OEMs and their service provider customers seeking to fill businesses' demands for more voice, data and fax connections at their sites. Building in Value, Reducing Cost for Communications Equipment Suppliers "Enterprise customers cannot afford to wait when they need additional capacity from a communications service provider, so expandable switches with enhanced services features hold great appeal. The cost consciousness and revenue pressure that are pervasive in telecom today further intensify the demand to build in more at a lower cost," said Brian Demers, vice president and general manager of New Network Solutions at NMS Communications. "The CG 6100C responds with unrivalled density, a lower cost per port and key features that accelerate development. Customers can also deploy multiple boards in a system and can achieve densities as high as 192 T1/E1 spans in a single box. As the technology partner of choice for communications suppliers worldwide, NMS understands the value we offer by leading the market in fundamentals such as these while we continue to forge ahead with innovation." European Computer Telecoms AG (ECT) designs and implements software-based, next-generation switching systems for national and international carriers. The company serves telecom carriers from its headquarters in Munich, and from sales and service centres in London, Paris, Strasbourg, The Hague, Brussels and Vienna "Increased E1 trunk capacity and port density are critically important in Europe, where E1 trunks are the most commonly used service," said Dr. Hans Huber, CTO of ECT. "Yet capacity and cost are only the beginning of the story. By designing switches that deliver multiple value-added services and connect directly to the public network, ECT equips carriers to realise new business opportunities in the shortest possible time. Consequently, we look to NMS' CG 6100C for its density, in addition to enhanced services support and the robust reliability that are part of the package." CG 6100C boards allow easy scalability To maximise the benefits of the CG 6100C's density, on-board digital signal processors (DSP) provide up to 120 ports of IVR and fax functions, handle on-board echo cancellation, perform CAS (Channel Associated Signalling) and ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) signalling, and can supply call-control features such as DTMF tone handling (to detect and generate touch-tone signals). By reducing overhead on a system's main processor and eliminating the need for extra resource boards, these integrated capabilities enable developers to design cost-effective, single-chassis systems that can scale to high capacities. High-availability features include support for the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group's hot-swap standard, which allows CG 6100C boards to be added, removed or replaced without halting operation of a working system. Like other NMS platforms, the CG 6100C Series takes advantage of the Natural Access™ development environment, which works with Windows NT®, Windows® 2000, Solaris™ and Linux® operating systems. Natural Access speeds development of new communications solutions built with NMS technology by providing a set of application program interfaces (APIs) that are consistent across operating systems and communications protocols. This unified environment also allows the CG 6100C to be easily deployed together with NMS' Alliance Generation® and other Convergence Generation platforms - multiplying the array of feature and capacity combinations available to communications equipment suppliers. The CG 6100C Series will be available in a variety of configurations to meet the requirements of communications equipment developers and their customers, beginning in Q3 2001.
