FREMONT, Calif., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --ZNYX® Networks, an innovator of high-density solution-enabled platforms for carrier-grade and mission critical environments, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the Ultra5™ ZX2000 platform as a recipient of a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

"It gives me great pleasure to recognize ZNYX with a 2014 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "In the opinion of our distinguished judges, the ZX2000 has proven to be among the best communications and technology solutions on the market in 2014. I look forward to continued innovation from ZNYX Networks."

Invented for demanding applications that require mission critical performance and reliability, the Ultra5 ZX2000 blade server platform introduces a breakthrough technology with 50% more payload slots in a 5U chassis. The ZX2000 is a mid‐size platform that offers an unprecedented level of integration of all infrastructure components of an AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) chassis. This highly integrated platform infrastructure is achieved by concentrating dual 10G/40G switch and shelf managers in the space typically used for the shelf manager alone. With six payload slots compatible with 40G, 10G or 1G ATCA 3.1 blades, the ZX2000 enables the highest revenue-generating blade capacity of any 5U chassis available.

"Designed with cloud computing and massive virtual machine environments in mind, this revolutionary design delivers a mid-size ATCA server at a price point per slot competitive in enterprise environments," said Connie Austin, president and CEO, ZNYX Networks. "The high-density ZX2000 platform is ideal for datacenters and enterprises that require more capacity than a standard 5U system, as well as the benefits of space and power efficiencies."

The core software technology of the ZX2000 goes far beyond simple Ethernet switch management. The field-proven OpenArchitect™ embedded operating system offers flexible management of protocols, configuration, packet vectoring and high availability. ZNYX OpenArchitect uses familiar, industry-standard Linux® interfaces, enabling simple system configuration and true transparency for network integration.

The winners of the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year are featured in the January/February 2014 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and online at www.itmag.com.
