Ismosys has announced the details of Radisys’ fourth-generation Advanced TCA (ATCA) products.

Designed to address the requirements of next-generation network elements, including 4G and broadband, the Radisys ATCA 4.0 platform enables smooth transition to high-bandwidth applications such as LTE, Wimax, Femtocell gateways and video, and incorporates a 10GBase-KR and 40GBase-KR4 backplane plus 40G switching capability.

Radisys said that its ATCA 4.0 products provide scalability and high density in an ATCA form factor with a 400 per cent performance improvement in both switching and processing capabilities over 10G components.

These platforms combine a 40G chassis, a 40G switch and other 10G and 40G assets in a pre-integrated platform that enables the deployment of next-generation 4G applications.

The 40G chassis includes enhanced per-slot power and cooling capability along with true 40G backplane connectivity.

The 40G switch with switch management software provides increased I/O density and native 40G switching to the node slots.

The reuse of the switch management software will provide consistent API access, thereby providing reuse of any development with the existing 10G switch.

Radisys will be expanding the switch management capabilities to include a ‘node router’, which eliminates the need for the stand-alone router that would typically provide connectivity between an edge device and the transport network.

The ATCA 4.0 platform builds on the level of integration available in the existing generation of products.

It also includes software integration including switch management, Linux and middleware.
