Product Announcement from Emerson Network Power Embedded Computing
The ATCA-F140 from Emerson Network Power is a high performance, high bandwidth 40G switch blade for AdvancedTCA® platforms. This product is perfect for the most bandwidth intensive telecom applications such as LTE and 4G network build-out in general. Along with the maximum ATCA fabric bandwidth available, the ATCA-F140 includes several features to maximize ATCA platform cost effectiveness.
Combining several ATCA® functions within a single blade design allows end users to maximize billable slots with revenue-generating application blades. This is accomplished with a combination of factory build options as well as several field options.
Optional functions include telecom clock generation and distribution, SATA based hard drive devices (HDDs) and an AdvancedMC™ (AMC) site for general processing and/or packet processing functions.
Several applications can be easily mapped to the flexible configuration options provided by the ATCA-F140. One common application is to combine the ATCA base and fabric interface switching function with the System Management function. This is done using a processor AMC and an on-board SATA HDD. Another application scenario is to combine the base and fabric interface switching function with a 1G packet processing AMC. Selecting different configuration options also allows for maximum external I/O via 1G, 10G and 40G Ethernet interfaces from the front panel and/or optional RTM. Many more configurations are possible, all fully controlled using a software utility.
Basic Blade Services (BBS) software is a fully integrated and verified software package available for the ATCA-F140. It includes carrier-grade Linux operating system (OS), all required device drivers and SRstackware switch software.
A powerful on-board service processor executes all switch functions, blade setup and hardware platform management functions independent of any processor AMC and/or SATA HDD installed. This allows full, 100% utilization of the AMC based processor for end-user applications.
