Emerson Network Power has launched the ATCA-7360: a high-performance 10Gbps AdvancedTCA (ATCA) single-board computer (SBC).

The ATCA-7360 features two of the latest Intel Xeon 5500 series processors, higher memory capacity and improved input/output (I/O) connectivity, virtualisation and power management compared to previous-generation ATCA blades.

Network equipment manufacturers can use Emerson’s off-the-shelf ATCA products to reduce the time and cost of developing or enhancing next-generation equipment.

The ATCA-7360 enables network and service providers to lower their Capex and Opex for a set of telecommunications applications, including control, gateway and telecommunications server functions for a variety of next-generation networks.

Additional applications include media servers, 3G serving and gateway support nodes, long-term evolution (LTE) mobile management entities and serving gateways, Wimax ASN gateways and IP Multimedia Subsystem media gateways.

The blade is also intended to help improve the price/performance ratio of commercial functions in network data centres and server-class environments beyond telecommunications, such as network-centric military, aerospace, scientific experimentation and other data processing applications.

Designed to comply with NEBS and ETSI specifications, the ATCA-7360 features two quad-core Intel Xeon L5518 (2.13GHz) processors based on the Intel Microarchitecture, codenamed ‘Nehalem’, and up to 80Gb DDR3 main memory.

Several rear transition module (RTM) variants are available to support different I/O configurations.

The RTMs also provide a hot-swappable hard-disk capability for a choice of storage options, including various capacity enterprise-class disks, a SATA disk with an extended temperature range or a solid-state disk.

The blade also supports Raid 0/1 for external disk drives.

The ATCA-7360 can be configured with a variety of software offerings, from firmware-only to fully integrated and verified software operating environments, including Red Hat RHEL 5.4, Wind River PNE LE 3.0 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008.

The ATCA-7360 is sampling now with worldwide general market availability expected in the first quarter of 2010.
