The first Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA)* systems are now hitting the streets, and initial indications are that this technology could be a real winner with telecom OEMs and carriers alike. As with many new technologies there is plenty of hype, but in this instance there is already real substance behind the headlines.

ATCA promises to bring "plug-and-play" to carrier-grade systems by defining a high-availability, chassis-based platform that will scale from gigabits- to terabits-per-second. ATCA systems can be used across many applications, from technology demonstrators to business-critical solutions.

This report takes a look beyond the headlines at the likely benefits, the applications, and the outline specifications, while exploring some of the recent developments supporting this new platform.

Here’s a hyperlinked summary of the report:

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
