Adax Signaling Board Successfully Tested in the Magma PCIe EM Expansion Blade with Sun Blade 6000 Server

Berkeley, CA, December 24, 2008 --( Adax has announced the compatibility of its HDC3 SS7 board with the industry’s first PCIe ExpressModule Expansion Blade chassis from Magma, providing seamless integration with the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System. The Sun Blade 6000 family is both highly flexible and scalable and allows for hot swappable PCIe cards using the new PCIe ExpressModule (PCIe EM) standard.

The combination lets users of the Sun Blade 6000 system benefit from the solutions offered by existing PCIe cards. Adax’s PCIe cards can be inserted into Magma’s PCI Express Blade Expansion chassis system and connected using an iPass cable to the Sun Blade 6000 Server.

Drew Sproul, Director of Sales and Marketing at Adax, said, “We are delighted to be the first to offer the market a solution that realizes the full potential of the Sun Blade Server 6000 family. When the Adax PCIe cards are combined with Magma’s Blade Expansion Chassis, it means that upgrading servers to the new PCIe EM standard won’t make their existing PCIe cards redundant.”

The solution is offered to market following rigorous lab-based tests designed to mimic the toughest signaling environments. The tests proved that the Adax and Magma solution integrated perfectly with the Sun Blade 6000 regardless of whether it used an Intel or SPARC processor.

"We are very proud to be working with Adax, who has officially qualified our industry leading EM to PCIe with their SS7 PCIe I/O cards”, said Randy Jones, President and CEO of Mission Technology Group. "We are excited to be a part of a complete configuration that will allow Adax customer to broaden their use of broadband signaling applications with a Sun Blade 6000."
