HP Unveils Entry-Class Server For Telecom Industry

The HP Integrity NonStop NS3000AC is sold as a package that includes hardware, an operating system, and a database stack.

Hewlett-Packard on Wednesday introduced an entry-class server for small- and medium-sized telecommunication operators, particularly those in emerging markets.

The HP Integrity NonStop NS3000AC, powered by an Intel Itanium 2 processor, is built to run telecom applications such as a home location register (HLR), real-time billing, and messaging. A HLR is a central database that contains details of each mobile phone subscriber.

The new server is sold as a package that includes hardware, an operating system, and a database stack. The computer allows for upgrades to future Itanium chip generations, and supports two or four processors per node, 4 or 8 gigabytes of memory, and the ability to connect up to 9 terabytes of disk storage per system using internal disks.

For intelligent network application, HP offers its OpenCall IN Server software, which provides several interfaces between the NS3000AC and Signaling System 7 networks. An intelligent network is an architecture that allows operators to provide mobile phone services, as well as standard telecom services. SS7 is a set of telephony protocols used to set up most of the world's telephone calls on the public switched telephone network.

Pricing for the new server was not disclosed.
