Page 0 of 1 D A T A S H E E T A New Way to Look at Solving Real-time Transcoding in Your Network As communications service providers accelerate their deployments of VoLTE, VoWiFi and WebRTC interactive services, the need for transcoding is more important than ever. These new services have introduced complex high definition audio and advanced video codecs into the network, leading to the need for more real-time transcoding and transrating to support service interworking and interoperability between legacy and modern devices and networks. Traditionally, media gateways and session border controllers (SBCs) have performed network transcoding functions, but few are designed for today's complex codecs. When new codecs are introduced such as EVS or Opus, communications service providers often need to perform expensive and time consuming forklift upgrades for their networks. Radisys' MediaEngine TM Transcode Resource Function (TRF) allows these operators to deploy transcoding as a distinct, independently scalable function which addresses their new transcoding needs as well as extends the life of existing SBCs and media gateways already deployed in the network. By decoupling transcoding from legacy network elements, communications service providers can reduce the number of transcoding nodes in their network and eliminate the need for expensive forklift upgrades typical when adding HD transcoding capabilities to today's SBCs and media gateways. Maximum Flexibility Maintaining the "any to any" communications flexibility between legacy PSTN, 2G/3G subscribers, and next generation fixed, mobile and cable MSO services expected by consumers requires real-time transcoding in the media path between devices. The MediaEngine™ Virtualized TRF (vTRF) delivers carrier-class transcoding in a software-only offering with performance-tuned virtualization support, compatibility with NFV architectures, and cloud deployment capabilities. Virtualization Support for Cloud and NFV Deployments The MediaEngine vTRF is designed for rapid deployment using an Open Virtualization Format (OVF) package. The Radisys solution is compatible with leading hypervisors such as VMware™ and KVM. Cloud deployment support is available for Amazon™ EC2, ETSI-NFV, and OpenStack. Industry-leading Virtualized Media Processing Performance The Radisys solution has been carefully engineered to achieve less than 5% performance degradation when running in virtualized configurations, compared to bare metal configurations – a significant achievement compared to alternative virtualized media processing solutions available today.load balancing, and SDN-controlled traffic distribution and load balancing in packet optical networks.
