Original Press Release:
Emerson Network Power Strengthens ATCA Blade Portfolio with High-Performance, Multi-Core Processor Blade
ATCA-7350 utilizes quad-core processors and advanced memory options to address next-generation 10Gbps applications
Tempe, Ariz [July 8, 2008] - Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity(TM), today added a new multi-core processor blade to its growing AdvancedTCA® (ATCA®) blade portfolio. The ATCA-7350 combines quad-core Intel® Xeon® processors with a wide range of memory options, plus redundant 10GbE support, to deliver the performance and flexibility required by server-type communications network elements. This product, together with the recently announced ATCA-9305, further reinforces the leadership of Emerson Network Power's Embedded Computing business within the ATCA market.
The new ATCA-7350 processor blade supports a wide range of applications, including media servers in IPTV and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) broadband networks. The blade is based on two 2.13GHz quad-core Intel® Xeon® processors and features a main memory capacity of up to 32GB. Dual hot-swappable and RAID-capable on-board disk drives can provide either enterprise-class disk performance and storage capacity in network datacenter applications, or dual automotive or solid-state disks in central office applications requiring Network Equipment Building Standard (NEBS) capability.
Increasing the blade's flexibility, the PICMG 3.1-compliant fabric interface provides two 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) interfaces for applications requiring higher network throughput in the backplane. Several rear transition module (RTM) configurations are available for external connectivity to suit application requirements, providing two or four optional 1GbE interfaces, support for 10GbE, a USB 1.1 management interface, and two optional 2Gbps Fibre Channel interfaces.
To meet the varying needs of the communications industry, the ATCA-7350 can be configured with a variety of software offerings, ranging from firmware-only to fully integrated and verified software operating environments. The ATCA-7350 also features an intelligent platform management control (IPMC) management subsystem, which provides monitoring, event logging and recovery control, and serves as the gateway for management applications to access the platform hardware.
"Emerson Network Power is committed to continually building on the ATCA standard to provide the right product at the right time for our telecom equipment manufacturing customers," said Jorge Magalhaes, vice president of marketing for the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. "The addition of the ATCA-7350 multi-core processor blade to our existing offerings based on Intel illustrates the importance of and demand for ATCA to support a growing range of advanced telecom applications."
The ATCA-7350 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2008.
