Press Release, News
TOKYO, JAPAN - Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (
The Emerson ATCA-7475 teams two of the new processors with two Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series devices for balanced offload acceleration. The new blade also provides the fastest possible memory subsystem and full bandwidth active/active 40G fabric interfaces to enable the highest performance packet processing and security applications in network data centers or telecom central offices.
BrIan Brown, vice president and general manager for marketing and services of Emerson Network Power's Embedded Computing business, said: "As the market leader in ATCA systems and blades, this new packet processing engine will enable our network equipment customers to stay ahead of the technology curve and make the most of the latest generation of enhanced Intel platform for communications infrastructure."
Frank Schapfel, marketing director, Intel Communications Infrastructure Division, said: "The refreshed Intel platform for communications infrastructure enables network equipment providers to implement packet processing together with other data plane and control plane functions on a single platform. The Intel® QuickAssist technology in the two Intel® 8900 series communications chipsets deliver both cryptography and compression acceleration for the most challenging data plane networking workloads. As a result, network operators should be able to reduce commissioning and operating expenses, while improving the efficiency of their network infrastructure to handle growing consumer demand for bandwidth."
A wide range of rear transition modules (RTMs) provides unrivalled flexibility in storage and I/O, making it easier for network equipment providers to integrate Emerson's ATCA-7475 into different network infrastructures. The new blade is designed to provide a smooth migration path for users of Emerson's ATCA-7470 packet processing blade and a performance and functionality boost for users of other ATCA blades based on Intel Xeon processors.
