Targeting telecommunications carriers, OKI (TOKYO:6703) today launched the CenterStage® NX3200 session Border controller (SBC) offering 10Gbps compatibility and world-leading packet transfer processing functions. The NX3200 allows up to 64,000 concurrent connections per unit, double that of previous OKI’s products, while minimizing transfer delays to 20 µsec for concurrent telecommunications connections at maximum data volumes. This product is ideal for telecommunications carriers both in Japan and worldwide, allowing them to offer seamless data transfers for full-scale VoIP services as well as future growth in data volumes without compromising quality or reliability.
A major issue for telecommunications carriers is how to handle the growing volumes of communications data generated by rapid growth in smartphone use, both by regular consumers and businesses, as well as the transition to and growth in cloud services. Another factor is growing use of VoLTE as part of the shift to LTE for voice communications to enable high-speed wireless services, even over mobile networks. Another factor has been the steady shift in voice communications services from existing public telephone exchange networks to VoIP networks. All voice communications routed via multiple carriers in this way are expected to use VoIP in the future.
“PSTN offers a highly reliable configuration, with high communication volumes and extreme quality and reliability. Achieving levels of quality or reliability comparable to previous SBCs proved extremely difficult, due to the difficulty of processing large-volume sessions while maintaining voice quality using the conventional routers and switches that form the basis for most SBC products. Handling increased volumes also introduced issues of increased initial and running costs,” says Hidetoshi Saigou, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Telecom Systems Business Division at OKI. “OKI has further improved the performance of conventional devices already highly acclaimed by carriers for their carrier-grade scalability and reliability. We have now developed a blade featuring packet transfer functions with world-leading performance, forming the basis of the new NX3200. The improved features allow seamless connections between a wide range of carriers, offering PSTN-comparable reliability and quality at low cost.
The product features a 10Gbps physical interface in addition to the existing 1Gbps interface to handle future growth in data volumes for connections between telecommunications carriers.
