Original Press Release:

IBM eServer xSeries 343 -- Full-Functioned, NEBS-Compliant Model for Telecommunications Environments


The xSeries® 343 server is engineered from the start to support telecommunications environments where Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) Level 3 compliance is required. This full-function, cost-effective, carrier-grade solution combines Intel(TM) processor technology and Linux operating system support to deliver high performance at a fraction of the cost of similar UNIX® based solutions.

Ideally suited for telecommunications, wireless, and other applications that require dc power, this 2 U high, 20-inch deep rack model provides top-of-the-line function for xSeries products designed for Telco applications. Preconfigured with two-way SMP processors, substantial system memory, redundant power supplies, and an Ultra320 SCSI HDD, it is ready to handle advanced Telco applications.
