Kontron Adds MicroTCA Platforms
The modular 19-inch 6U MicroTCA™ platforms are redundant and specifically designed in compliance with the MTCA.1 specification for applications with the highest demands for robustness, availability, and performance. Applications include infrastructure nodes for mobile telephony, public safety engineering, medical, and military. Typical end-point applications include “Network in a box” or Rural Utilities Service (RUS) for rural and remote communication systems supporting CDMA, GSM, 3G and VoIP across HLR/HSS, RNC, and Gateway applications. The Kontron platforms are also ideal for Rapidly Deployable Mobile Networks, radar, sonar, and video data processing. These applications will benefit from the densely-packed computing power of hot-swappable AdvancedMC™ modules and board-to-board dual-star switching beyond 1 GBit/s.
The Kontron MicroTCA™ platforms OM6090D and OM7090D are based on the same compact chassis (266 x 428 x 365 mm), which is equipped with four rear-mounted extraction fans. Both MTCA.1 compliant platforms provide nine double-width slots for AdvancedMC™ modules and two slots for redundant MicroTCA™ Carrier Hub (MCH) configurations (up to 80 Watts). The Kontron OM6090D supports up to three pluggable AC-PSUs offering load balancing. For redundant power management, the Kontron OM7090D can be configured with two (one active + one standby) or three (two active + one standby) power management modules.
