Emerson Boosts ATCA Blades

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today launched the ATCA-7360, its highest performance 10Gbps AdvancedTCA® (ATCA®) single-board computer (SBC) to date. The ATCA-7360 features two of the latest Intel® Xeon® 5500 series processors in addition to higher memory capacity, improved I/O connectivity, virtualization and power management compared to previous generation ATCA blades. Network equipment manufacturers use Emerson’s off-the-shelf ATCA products to reduce the time and cost of developing or enhancing next generation equipment.

“ATCA technology is already the default choice for new telecom equipment projects and the performance and flexibility of blades such as Emerson’s ATCA-7360 will enable network equipment providers to converge some of the functionality currently executed on proprietary equipment into their open standards ATCA projects,” said Lee Doyle, vice president and general manager, Network Infrastructure, IDC. “The continued and fast-paced technology advancement in ATCA is demonstrating that it can be a serious contender beyond the telecom central office.”
