Advantech Eextends Ssolutions for Telecom Applications
Contemporary telecommunications delivers network services around the clock, and is constantly in need of a high-performance, reliable and serviceable platform. As the demand for higher network traffic and better I/O performance increases for Telecom usage, Advantech introduces solutions based on AdvancedTCA to further enhance the performance capability of carrier-grade telecommunication platforms. ATCA offers quick and simple integration & deployment and inherits the modularity and configurability of former CompactPCI standards, which is an ideal solution for Telecom applications.
Advantech AdvancedTCA in the Works
With rich experiences in the design of industrial-grade motherboard and CompactPCI single board computers, Advantech introduces its flagship AdvancedTCA (ATCA) solution with a high-performance low-power CPU board.
The first available solution, MIC-5301, is based on the new Intel Dual-Core processors, Low Voltage Intel Xeon processor with the Intel E7520 Graphic Memory Controller Hub and the Intelï¿½ 6300ESB I/O controller hub to offer stable performance. It is a powerful and fully validated platform solution designed to satisfy maximum I/O requirements with a reliable and flexible architecture. The MIC-5301 is also compatible with products from many global ATCA chassis makers, as well as with Intel and Pigeon point System platform management solutions.
In addition to the development of ATCA processor board, Advantech also specializes in other ATCA solutions such as RTM boards, AMC boards, backplane and more. Advantech's professional global development teams supply efficient, full technical support for mechanical analysis, signal integrity simulation, thermal simulation, hardware language development, and signal quality measurement - all with a view to satisfy demanding customer requirements.
With years of experience serving top-line Telecom vendors, Advantech's strategy in ATCA is to offer reliable solutions through its Design To Order Services (DTOS). Based on the ODM service concept, Advantech's dedicated design team offers an innovative design capability along with accumulated domain know-how to support various applications. Combined with world-class manufacturing, and global logistical support, DTOS service benefits Advantech clients with faster time-to-market deliveries, flexible modular designs, and lower development costs.
Partnership for a Balanced Ecosystem
Based on the modularity, configurability and flexibility of ATCA, Advantech has worked closely with various ATCA solution makers to create a complete ecosystem for the customers. Whether it be backplane, chassis, or a comprehensive system management module, Advantech offers joint test programs to ensure platform compatibility and interoperability. Through the close partnership, it ensures that all suggested solutions meet Advantech's high standards. At Advantech, quality is never left to chance.
Franz Wei, Vice President of Industrial & Network Computing Group in Advantech, has noted, "ATCA solutions are an extension of Advantech's existing technological expertise. Over the years, we have serviced customers with high-performance industrial- grade computing platforms. Nevertheless, with our new strength in AdvancedTCA solution design, we can help our customers to set-up the exact Telecom applications that they desire. The MIC-5301 AdvancedTCA CPU board represents a clear benchmark for our ATCA design capabilities."
Advantech has invested continuous effort in the development of improvements for Telecommunications platforms. Now, with the extended offering of AdvancedTCA solutions, Advantech brings forth a new level of high-performance industrial computing platforms.
