Adax Delivers Four Port SS7 Controller for Low Profile PCI Express

HDC3 Provides Superior Scalability, Flexibility and Price Performance Ratios.

Reading, United Kingdom, November 01, 2008 --( Adax Europe, an industry leader in high performance signaling infrastructure, has launched the HDC3-Low Profile PCI Express (PCIe) four port SS7 controller: HDC3-LPe. With four physical ports on board, rather than the normal two, Adax’s Low Profile PCIe card maximizes system density and helps to reduce points of failure by removing the need for Y cables ensuring NEBS certification isn’t affected when four connections are required.

The HDC3 is a high density, high performance solution ideal for narrowband and broadband signaling applications and is being released following rigorous testing on many rack-mounted servers and trials by customers. Delivering up to 124 MTP2 links or four HSLs (Q.703 Annex A or ATM AAL5) per card, the HDC3-LPe board is able to perform many thousands of transactions per second, placing minimal load on the host, maximising application performance and ensuring no degradation of service for the customer.

“Increasingly providers such as Sun and HP are making only Low Profile PCI Express slots available in their rack-mount server ranges and the Low Profile PCIe format saves space, leaving server manufacturers more room for bigger and faster host CPUs,” explains Robin Kent, director of operations at Adax Europe. “As the only vendor who can support a single software driver and a common API across the whole range of board formats our HDC3 saves development time and provides a rapid return on investment.”

The Adax HDC3 family is available in PMC, AMC, PCI/X and PCIe board formats. The board is dynamically configurable and can deliver up to 8 T1/E1 ports and 248 channels of multiple protocols, including SS7 MTP2, LAPB/D/V5, Frame Relay, X.25 and HDLC per card. ATM AAL5 is also supported for broadband SS7. With the ability to install multiple cards in a system, the HDC3 provides a totally scalable, flexible and cost-effective solution that is ideal for any signaling need.
