RadiSys Expands ATCA Line
Until now, ATCA has been targeted for use in ancillary network control applications such as session setup, monitoring and management. With the introduction of the Promentum SYS-6010 managed platform and new modular building blocks, TEMs (telecommunications equipment manufacturers) can now take advantage of ATCA in core traffic-bearing applications that require significantly greater bandwidth and traffic processing capabilities. The Promentum SYS-6010 delivers the highest speed I/O, switching and packet processing capabilities to be implemented in a managed ATCA platform and can be configured for use in applications such as IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), Radio Network Controllers, Media Gateways and Call Servers.
"Billions of dollars are being spent upgrading current infrastructure to handle more traffic and serve more subscribers and AdvancedTCA is becoming the architecture that will facilitate rapid developments in the industry," said Ernie Bergstrom , principal analyst with Crystal Cube Consulting. "RadiSys is helping companies realize the benefits of AdvancedTCA on a broader scale with the SYS-6010. Their common managed platform approach will enable TEMs and service providers to keep up with technology advancements and changing customer requirements."
"Our ATCA strategy goes beyond developing individual building blocks," said Scott Grout , RadiSys president and CEO. "Delivering a common managed platform for network element and dataplane applications offers a significant benefit to our customers. The SYS-6010 will allow TEMs to use the same managed platform for a variety of applications, which can reduce their overall development time by up to 50 percent and significantly reduce development, lifecycle and equipment costs."
