DSP Based Media Processing Blade For AdvancedTCA™ Systems
Media processing blade, based on
Octasic Vocallo DSP technology,
providing high density IP voice
conversion and up to 1080p video
transcoding capability.
The Artesyn Embedded Technologies ATCA-8320 is a DSP-based media processing blade
for use in AdvancedTCA systems. It offers a very high density of IP voice and video
transcoding, including H.264 at up to 1080p, for use in communications applications.
ƒƒ Single slot AdvancedTCA blade with
10G fabric
ƒƒ Up to 24 Octasic OCT2224M DSPs
on two mezzanine sites
ƒƒ Freescale QorIQ P4080 for blade
management, packet processing and
load balancing of IP streams
ƒƒ Dual core Intel® Core™ i7
processor for local control and
management application
ƒƒ Local Ethernet switching network
with full switch management utilities
Voice and video streaming over IP networks is becoming more pervasive as customer
demand for media consumption continues to rise, and the diversity of media sources,
network conditions and individual consumption devices proliferate. Using traditional Intel®
Xeon® server architectures, power and efficiency soon become a limitation when scaling
voice and especially HD video stream processing to high channel densities. By employing
efficient Octasic OCT2224M Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) to provide the transcoding
functions, the new ATCA-8320 media processing blade can take the place of many
additional server blades when adding voice or video processing to an application.
The blade can be used as an offload function for a standard server blade, but can also
be used as the basis for a standalone media processing function. In addition to the DSPs,
the ATCA-8320 blade features an integrated multicore CPU to provide advanced IP flow
management and distribution, and an x86 CPU for local application hosting. This “Gateway
on a Blade” architecture allows a high degree of scalability from very small systems up to
very large.
This board is particularly suited to the following applications:
ƒƒ Rear transition module supports
direct Ethernet cable terminations
ƒƒ Session Border Controllers (adding voice or video transcode)
ƒƒ Designed for NEBS Level 3 and ETSI
telecom standards compliance in a
CP-TA B.4 class ATCA enclosure
ƒƒ Media Servers / Media Resource Function
ƒƒ Media Gateways
ƒƒ Mobile Video Optimization (transcode and transrating)
ƒƒ Video Communications and Conferencing Servers
ƒƒ Interactive Voice and Video Response Systems
ATCA-8320 brings multi-core DSPs and the powerful Vocallo MGW voice and video
software stacks together with Artesyn’s leading ATCA system heritage and thermal design
skill, resulting in an industryleading media processing density for the next generation of
ATCA-based voice and video processing systems.

DSP Mezzanine 2
ATCA-8320 is a PICMG 3.0/3.1 compliant AdvancedTCA blade
designed for high density IP media processing applications. It offers
a unique combination of processor technologies designed to
maximize the flow processing and management capability of a
single blade.
The ATCA-8320 utilizes a base board and DSP mezzanine module
approach. In addition to maximizing flexibility and scalability, this
also supports the insertion of new technology as it becomes
available. At the heart of the board is a Freescale P4080 integrated
multicore packet processing CPU and a Layer 2/3 Ethernet switch
that interconnects all the various processing elements and provides
access to a redundant 10G ATCA backplane network. The P4080
implements powerful security and load balancing functions that
hide the complexity of the DSP voice and video processing
subsystem from external networks.
The ATCA-8320 can be equipped with up to 24 Octasic OCT- 2224M
DSPs using one or two field-upgradeable mezzanines. Using
mezzanines allows for low entry costs and pay-as-you-grow
scalability, and a range of performance points will be available to
choose from. All the DSPs on each individual mezzanine are
additionally connected using a private Ethernet switch for additional
data sharing. This feature allows implementation of multi-party
video conferences using HD 1080p video. Various performance
points are available to better match to installation needs. These are
differentiated by the number of DSPs on the mezzanine and
selection of either voice only or voice + video firmware.
The board offers an optional Intel® Core™ i7 processor subsystem
that, when fitted, allows the board to operate as a fully functional
“media gateway on a blade” for small systems. The Intel Core i7
processor can run both management and call agent applications
from an on-board SSD drive, and is certified for use with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. It avoids the need for additional ATCA blades to
perform this task, again minimizing the cost to first call. The blade
supports direct access to this processor via USB, Ethernet and
VGA ports on the front panel.
Direct Ethernet cable termination is possible on a Rear Transition
Module. This supports both 10G and 1G cable options. The board
also supports full ATCA clock synchronization and recovery from a
variety of channelized TDM terminations as customer-specific options.
