HighWire HW400c/2 Gateway and Communication Server cPCI Blade

PTMC core processing platform with PICMG 2.16


One Stop Systems's HighWire series of communications controller products provide high bandwidth intelligent connectivity to servers designed to act as gateways and signaling points within communication networks and network devices. For embedded Linux applications, HighWire products can be coupled with our WAN and LAN PCI mezzanine cards or other third party PMC products to create a highly flexible core computing and connectivity solution for communications, military/government, medical and industrial control markets.

The HW400c/2 is a 6U CompactPCI core processor with dual PTMC sites, dual Ethernet, PICMG 2.16 Packet Switched Backplane, and H.110 CT-Bus interfaces. This modular, flexible core processing blade is available in a bundled solution that couples the HW400c/M with TimeSys Linux GPL Software Developers Kit (SDK) to provide a complete blade computing platform for scalable, high-availability networking.

Designed as an advanced technology building block for processor enabled telephony and data communications I/O solutions, the HW400c/2 has two modular I/O sites that support both standard PMC and CT Bus enabled PTMC modules. The PTMC sites are linked to a time slot interchanger and full H.110 CT bus interface for a complete TDM switching solution. Two 10/100 Ethernet controllers provide software selectable front or rear panel access or dual node CompactPCI Packet Switched Backplane support.

A 1.0 GHz MPC7447A PowerPC processor with 64MB of fast SDRAM and an extended Flash memory array provides a core protocol processing engine for servicing installed modules, dual cPSB/Ethernet ports, host PCI, and TDM interface.

HW400c/2-compatible PTMC CT Bus-enabled modules provide channelized  T3, T1, E1, and J1 interfaces and PMC modules for most telecom and data communications applications.
