Kontron AT8404 AdvancedTCA 10GbE fabric carrier

By AT8404 AdvancedTCA 10GbE

The Kontron AT8404 is one of three key open modular platform elements that complete Kontron’s 10 GbE product portfolio. As a PICMG 3.0/3.1-compliant AdvancedTCA carrier board, the AT8404 sets an industry precedent with 4 Mid-Size AMC slots that support a full range of AMC modules including — TDM interfaces (E1/T1, STM-1, OC3), NPUs, DSPs, PrAMCs and Storage AMCs. The Kontron AT8404 provides equipment manufacturers the flexibility to customize the design of their network system solutions, especially for various 10 GbE-based systems that drive IMS-based broadband applications that require the seamless delivery of video and data content in IPTV or VoD networks. Suitable for dual-star configurations in 14- and 16-slot systems, the AT8404 is hot swappable, supports full redundancy, and provides PCI-Express, SRIO or 10GbE direct AMC interconnects. For storage solutions, the AT8404 additionally provides SAS/SATA direct AMC interconnects. With full IPMI 1.5 support, the AT8404 also features a dedicated controller as an additional Firmware Update Manager (FWUM) for field upgrades, rollbacks and watchdog functions.
