Oracle Communications Converged Application Server Proves Its Mettle in Performance Test [25573]
Demonstrates Ability to Manage Massive Volume of Telco Network Sessions

In a performance test Oracle Communications Converged Application Server running on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and using the Oracle Linux operating system, executed a SIP scenario based on a 13 message back-to-back user agent (B2BUA) – the standard industry SIP call-controlling component that maintains complete call state and controls call set up, management and termination. Running on an eight-node Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2 quarter rack and in high availability mode with full state replication, Oracle Communications Converged Application Server achieved peak capacity of approximately 180 million busy hour call attempts (BHCA) and a peak capacity of approximately 62 million BHCA.

Enabling End-to-End 10 Gigabit Ethernet in Oracle’s Sun Netra ATCA Product Family [24000]
The Coming Off-the-shelf Era in Telcom

The Oracle white paper "Enabling End-to-End 10 Gigabit Ethernet in Oracle’s Sun Netra ATCA Product Family" gives readers an overview of Oracle’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet-enabled Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) platforms and the spectrum of available Oracle Sun blades. With the Telcom industry moving to meet its needs for timing-dependent, high-throughput packet-processing applications with off-the-shelf hardware that typically have required custom hardware, the paper outlines the full ecosystem of ATCA products, highlighting how 10 GbE Ethernet is integrated into the Oracle ATCA blade family. The paper also provides an architectural overview of the SPARC T3, UltraSPARC T2, Intel Xeon, and AMD Opteron processor-powered ATCA blades, the 10 GbE Ethernet ATCA switch, the 10 GbE Ethernet System Platform, available Advanced Rear Transition Modules, and carrier-grade software that can be used to enhance and manage ATCA platforms. An additional appendix discusses considerations for power planning.
