To provide TEMS with switching, power and cooling to focus on building network elements
RadiSys has launched 4th generation of its AdvancedTCA (ATCA) products that are designed to support high bandwidth applications. This platform features a 10GBASE-KR and 40GBASE-KR4 capable backplane and 40G switching capability.
RadiSys said that its ATCA 4.0 platform will provide Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) with switching, power and cooling that they require to focus on building network elements, including 4G and Broadband.
The 40G platform follows the 3rd generation of its platforms that allows 10G applications. TEMs looking for 4G networks can leverage RadiSys’ ATCA 4.0 platform, thus protecting the customer’s current investment in 3G networks, while ensuring economical transition to the ATCA 4G environment, the company claims.
According to RadiSys, the ATCA 4.0 platform builds on its existing 10G applications and infrastructure with deployed applications such as 3G wireless, IMS, IPTV and miscellaneous gateways. In addition to the complete platform validation including backplane and thermal validations with the 40G switch and chassis, the 4.0 platform also includes software integration including switch management, Linux and middleware.
Anthony Ambrose, vice president and general manager of communications networks at RadiSys, said: “Our 4th generation 40G platform announcement reinforces our technology leadership that we delivered in our 3rd generation 10G platform, and demonstrates how we anticipate customers’ future requirements better than any other company.”
