Adax Announces Compatibility of its Signaling Board with the Magma PCIe EM Expansion Blade

Adax, a provider of signaling infrastructure for converging networks, has announced that its HDC3 SS7 board is now interoperable with Magma’s PCIe ExpressModule Expansion Blade chassis, the first of its kind in the market. This will ensure smooth integration with the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System.
The PCIe cards are based on the PCIe ExpressModule (PCIe EM) standard are compatible with the Sun Blade 6000 family.
Placed into Magma’s PCI Express Blade Expansion chassis system, Adax’s PCIe cards can be connected to the Sun Blade 6000 Server through an iPass (News - Alert) cable.
“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 (News - Alert) 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,” said Drew Sproul, director of Sales and Marketing at Adax.
The Adax solution has been developed after intense lab testing intended to simulate demanding signaling environments. It was demonstrated that the Adax and Magma solution were perfectly compatible with Sun Blade 6000, whether equipped with an Intel (News - Alert) or a SPARC processor.
Adax offers signaling communications controllers for SS7, ATM and IP; integrated signaling protocol stacks and blades for SS7 and SIGTRAN; and multi-purpose signaling gateways for SS7 and IP interworking. It boasts an elite clientele comprising Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks and Genband; and value added service (VAS) providers and system integrators such as NetHawk (News - Alert), Bharti Telesoft, and ip.

In a recent article, TMCnet reported that Adax’s HDCII-LPe SS7 boards are being deployed by EVISTEL in the latest version of its Charging Center solution.
San Diego, California based Magma has a proven track record in providing PCI and PCI Express Expansion Systems to enterprises and expansion solutions to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), resellers and end-users.
