The TelcoBridges™ Tdev TB640 is a CompactPCI-based value-added services (VAS) development platform that meets the needs of service providers and solution developers looking to drive network convergence or expand their service offerings.
Each blade is standalone and does not require a chassis CPU – this not only reduces cost but also increases system reliability. TB640™ blades are controlled using an asynchronous message-based API, Toolpack API over dual redundant GigE ports. Toolpack API is host-agnostic and natively supports application server redundancy and automatically switches between redundant control paths, providing you with instantaneous system-level redundancy.
Similar in capacity to the TMP6400, the TB640 supports up to 64 x E1/T1/J1 interfaces, up to 3 x DS3, or a single OC3/STM-1 on each blade. Using the TB Multi-Blade switch, 16 cards can be combined in to a single non-blocking system offering up to 32,678 channels.
A separate mezzanine module is also available to add VoIP capabilities to the TB640.
Important note: Lower capacity versions of the TB640 are also available. The TB8 provides support for up to 8 E1/T1/J1 interfaces per blade. The TB16 provides support for up to 16 E1/T1/J1 interfaces per blade.
