IBM BladeCenter HT, the newest NGN platform in the evolution of the BladeCenter family, is a powerful new chassis that helps reduce network infrastructure costs while increasing network infrastructure performance and flexibility—making it the ideal platform to support demanding next-generation, high-performance core telecom network applications such as Internet Protocol TV (IPTV), Video on Demand (VoD), IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Advanced Security.
The new chassis maintains compatibility with the BladeCenter family. The four chassis in the BladeCenter family share the same blades and switches, and support legacy and currently shipping blades. Compatibility will continue in the future as new blades are introduced with new capabilities, offering additional functionality to the family—BladeCenter, BladeCenter T and BladeCenter H chassis. Leveraging a single, compatible architecture enables you to reduce costs and complexity, while delivering investment protection for your next-generation network (NGN) infrastructures.
