Moto Touts ATCA
At CTIA Wireless 2005, Motorola is previewing this new highly scalable, low-profile AdvancedTCA platform. It is also debuting its Service Availability Forum compliant high-availability (HA) middleware.
“Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) want to streamline their supply chains and, where possible, purchase pre-integrated, validated platforms from a smaller number of proven suppliers. Large-scale ATCA system vendors, such as Motorola, are able to participate in the re-engineering of OEM supply chains and are well positioned to meet this need,” commented Gabriel Brown, chief analyst at Light Reading Insider, an independent telecommunications research service.
“Recent announcements by telecom equipment manufacturers such as Nortel demonstrate that a growing number of OEMs are moving to open standards-based common platforms across their product portfolios,” said Wendy Vittori, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Communications Computing, Motorola. “Computing platforms based on AdvancedTCA technology can deliver significant time-to-market, cost and flexibility benefits to both telecom equipment manufacturers and network operators. By having more choices in terms of platform size and level of integration, our customers will be able to address even more telecom applications and help AdvancedTCA achieve the economies of scale necessary to reach its full potential.”
