Avaya Aura(R) Communication Manager servers, Avaya Meeting Exchange conference servers and Avaya Administration Terminals have been selected for use aboard
The ruggedized Avaya application servers are based on commercially available technology customized with a standard rack-mountable design that can withstand harsh shipboard conditions. Avaya teamed with Core Systems to ensure the servers are shipboard-ready. The cases are manufactured by Core Systems from strain-hardened, structural aircraft aluminum for maximum strength and minimum weight, with special fans, strain-relief cables and hold-down mechanisms to protect sensitive computer components.
The new chassis standardizes the server size, shape, power and other factors -- an important feature that reduces costs and makes it easier for engineers to integrate commercially available servers onboard any
Avaya application servers housed in Core Systems chassis have passed testing for the following five military environmental ruggedization specifications:
Electromagnetic emissions testing to ensure sensitive components are protected from transmitting or receiving electromagnetic interference that might impact performance (EMI MIL-STD-461E). Vibration testing to determine that the case protects sensitive equipment against vibrations generated aboard ship or by the equipment itself (VIBE MIL-STD-167-1A). Temperature and humidity testing to determine that Avaya servers are protected from harsh environmental conditions (MIL-STD-810F). Shock testing to determine that the equipment can withstand the high-impact mechanical shock expected if a ship is hit by a torpedo (MIL-STD-901D, Grade A). Airborne noise testing to demonstrate that the equipment does not emit unacceptable levels of ambient noise (MIL-STD-740, 220.127.116.11, Category A3).
