Emerson Network Power Presents Integrated Carrier Grade Solutions

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity[tm], announced it has integrated best-of-breed open standards-based hardware, storage and database solutions that accelerate deployment of carrier grade server applications. The solution, featuring technology from Oracle and EMC, is being showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 16 -19, 2009. Emerson’s demonstration shows how the prequalified and supported carrier grade solution for network database applications can help carriers and network operators take cost and risk out of launching new services while enabling them to respond faster to market needs and competition.

The solution is based on the Centellis 2000 AdvancedTCA® server platform from the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. It features Oracle® Database 11g, Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Data Guard, from Oracle, the world’s largest business software company [www.oracle.com]. EMC® CLARiiON® networked storage systems and EMC RecoverPoint data protection solutions are provided by EMC, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions [www.emc.com].

“By bringing together hardware and real application software, EMC, Emerson and Oracle are enabling carriers and operators to standardize and outsource more of their central office infrastructure and beyond,” said BJ Jenkins, EMC senior vice president, global marketing. “The innovative carrier grade EMC solution can offer significantly improved performance with faster deployment, lower costs and improved scalability. In addition to these capabilities, it’s ready to run with best-of-breed hardware and software from Emerson Network Power and Oracle.”

“With carrier business models under attack from free services, operators are looking for ways to reduce or optimize costs,” said Jorge Magalhaes, vice president of marketing for the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. “Leveraging best-of-breed commercial off-the-shelf components in general, and ATCA specifically, presents one of the most obvious ways of addressing this challenge. Built with the flexibility of modular open standards, ATCA solutions also allow providers to adapt to new requirements and discard unprofitable or unpopular services without having to write off capital expenditures.”

Visitors to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona can learn more about this prequalified and supported solution for telecom network database applications at the Emerson Network Power booth 2D88.
