ATCA Building Blocks®
Emerson Network Power's line of AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) products are designed to address applications requiring high performance, high reliability and long life cycles. Traditionally designed for the Telecommunications Central Office, AdvancedTCA systems are also being used in non-Telecom environments such as military and aerospace; high energy physics; financial applications; surveillance; signals intelligence and industrial automation and medical. In telecommunications, AdvancedTCA systems are being deployed in wireless and wireline networks, converged network packet cores, application delivery platforms, and other central office and network data center functions.
Emerson’s Centellis™ series of ATCA platform cores integrate chassis, cooling, fabric switching, shelf management and power distribution in a tightly integrated, tested, and field proven system. Tested and verified hardware and software components, designed for NEBS, ETSI and other regulatory compliance, help to reduce development costs and accelerate time-to-market. These systems include future proofing features such as enhanced CP-TA B.4 cooling, 40Gb/s ready fabric backplanes, and up to 350W per slot of input power, allowing you to deploy systems today that can accomodate future blade upgrades throughout the long lifecycle of telecommunications equipment.
Emerson Network Power provides customers with a complete suite of ATCA blades including high-performance processor, flexible I/O, packet processing and storage blades. These blades are designed to simplify interoperability and comply with regulatory requirements such as NEBS and ETSI. Customers also gain access to ecosystem partners that support Emerson products.
