BladeWare HMP Portal
The recent advent of blade servers, combined with IP-telephony and giga-hertz-plus PCs, has created the conditions needed for Commetrex to develop BladeWare™, a category-defining software product. BladeWare, an open, value-adding platform, gives the OEM the tools needed to build the all-server-blade host media-processing server. It combines Commetrex’ OTF Kernel™ telephony middleware, a SIP Resource Service Manager, the OpenMedia™ host media processing framework, and our Packet-media Technologies to produce an open, modular platform for servers, based entirely on PC blades. Although the architecture supports the addition of adjunct resources, such as DSPs and PSTN interfaces, none are required to produce systems that scale to 30,000 ports in one 19-inch equipment rack.
Above: Our latest video explains how BladeWare with Smart FoIP can help businesses improve their fax reliability over IP carrier networks and eliminate the need to keep POTS lines for faxing.
For the last few years, the MIPS available on one Pentium-class PC have been adequate to process over 100 media streams, while still leaving ample processing power to host several applications. And, with Moore’s Law still being followed by the semiconductor industry, the number doubles every 18 months. Now, the availability of blade servers make scaling the number of open-architecture processors in a system as easy as adding a DSP-resource board. And the densities are nearly the same. But, although blade-server architecture makes adding processors a snap, the software required to harness these MIPS and provide seamless system expansion has not been available.
BladeWare solves the problem. For a more detailed explanation how, read our white paper The Next-Generation Media Server.
With the BladeWare SDKs, the developer can create any media-server application. The three BladeWare SDKs, BladeWare Fax Media Server, BladeWare Email2Fax, and BladeWare Fax2Email, include application source code that is so complete, new development may not be required. And soon, BladeWare fax solutions will include Commetrex’ patent-pending Smart FoIP™ technology, which improves the performance of fax-over-IP (FoIP) comparable to that of the PSTN network by eliminating the problems caused by late-arriving T.38 re-Invites from the receiving gateway, thus causing the call to fail if the re-Invite is accepted when it should actually be rejected.
