PICMG, the organization behind the AdvancedTCA specification, is announcing the release of 3.1R2. Being hailed as a “major improvement” to the ATCA architecture, 3.1R2 allows a single chassis to transfer 10 terabytes per second. This is a quadruple
increase in bandwidth for all future ATCA products. The ATCA specification has become standard use in the telecommunications and defense markets, so the impact of this release will be far-reaching.
In the current telecommunications network, the data hungry trend is only growing. From front line troops to schoolchildren, the consumption of HD video and other bandwidth-taxing applications across wired and wireless networks has been exploding.
Advances like these will help keep capital costs down, by maintaining backwards compatibility, while providing greater bandwidth for end customers.
