GNP, a developer of system framework architectures for the embedded control and communications market, announced additions to its series of pre-configured CompactPCI (cPCI) platforms designed for voice- and data-network infrastructure applications. GNP's Media Gateway and Signaling Gateway platforms are designed to include all of the hardware and software required for developing and deploying embedded control and telecommunications systems for the wireless and wireline markets.

The Media Gateway and Signaling Gateway platforms are designed to come with all the hardware and software required for developing and deploying embedded control and telecommunications systems for the wireless and wireline markets.

The Media Gateway platform is built on a GNP ComputeNode chassis -- available in a 2U, 3U, or 4U configuration -- and includes: Sun's Netra CP2040 cPCI processor board with a 500 MHz UltraSPARC II processor and 512MB of memory; Sun's Solaris 8 Operating Environment; NMS Communications' Convergence Generation VoIP card; NMS' Fusion 4 development environment and Natural Access operating and development environment; redundant hot-swappable power supplies; an efficient cooling system; a built-in alarm card; and disk storage. Additional satellite processors and VoIP cards can be added to enhance capabilities.

The Signaling Gateway platform is built on a GNP ComputeNode chassis -- available in a 2U, 3U, or 4U configuration -- and includes: Sun's Netra CP2040 cPCI processor board with a 500 MHz UltraSPARC II processor and 512MB of memory; Sun's Solaris 8 Operating Environment; NMS Communications' SS7 Version 3.8 software stack and NMS TX3220C T1 adapter card; redundant hot-swappable power supplies; an efficient cooling system; and a built-in alarm card. Satellite processors or additional T1 cards may be added to suit particular customer requirements.

In addition to the Media Gateway and Signaling Gateway platforms, GNP debuted its Network Controller platform earlier this month. GNP's Network Controller is equipped with components to develop and deploy powerful network communications solutions.
