HILLSBORO, Ore. -- RadiSys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a leading global provider of advanced embedded solutions, today announced the release of its Promentum® ATCA-4500, a new AdvancedTCA (ATCA) single board computer (SBC) utilizing the new Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series. The ATCA-4500 combines high performance with large memory capacity and expansion flexibility to address advanced control, gateway and telecom server functions for a broad set of 4G applications including LTE (Long-Term Evolution), WiMAX, NMS (Network Management Systems), and IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem). The ATCA-4500 represents seventh-generation RadiSys ATCA blade technology delivering on the promise of Moore’s law – doubling the number of transaction or subscriber units that Telecom Service Providers can handle per ATCA slot – thereby, dramatically reducing cost per unit.

“We bring true innovation and system level thinking to every product we design and the Promentum ATCA-4500 encapsulates the best in single board computers,” said Anthony Ambrose, RadiSys Vice President and General Manager, Communications Networks. “As the market leader in Integrated ATCA System deployments, the ATCA-4500 complements our other market leading products using DSP, packet processing and switching technology in building the world’s best 10G ATCA platform.”

RadiSys’ ATCA-4500 has been optimized to meet Telecom Equipment Manufacturer (TEM) requirements for easily integrating into an existing ATCA chassis and for supporting multiple storage options and OS virtualization. The ATCA-4500 features an innovative virtualization solution that allows TEMs to streamline the complexities of their network element configurations and ease the porting of legacy application software and operating systems.

The ATCA-4500 is based on breakthrough Intel processing technology enabling TEMs to use higher performing silicon at the system level. A single Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series will outperform the previous generation of Intel® Xeon® Processors 5400 series by up to 25% using standard computing benchmark.* The ATCA-4500 is based on single socket design technology and provides TEMs with higher performance while being packaged such that it is fully upgradeable for next generation performance, safeguarding their investments in hardware by avoiding costly redesigns when new processing technology from Intel hits the market.

“Intel’s highest performing processor, the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series, is designed to meet the performance and virtualization requirements for the most demanding storage, security and communications infrastructure applications,” said Doug Davis, vice president and general manager, Embedded and Communication Group of Intel. “This enables the RadiSys Promentum® ATCA-4500 to support both legacy and next generation applications on the same virtualized communications element without sacrificing performance.”
