UNICOM Engineering’s A-13000 R2 carrier-grade AdvandedTCA (ATCA) communications platform offers customers a standardized architecture for next-generation communications applications. This product has passed rigorous testing required by today’s telecommunication organizations. UNICOM Engineering’s ATCA system offers scalability and greater than 5-nines (99.999%) availability. The A-13000 R2 shelf features a 40 GbE “KR-Ready” backplane. This allows for 40 Gbps communication across the PICMG 3.1 fabric interface. Using this technology, it is possible to upgrade to 40 GbE capable switch and payload blades in the future without replacing the shelf infrastructure. This is becoming increasingly important as dataplane applications start migrating to ATCA based platforms. Equally important is the power and thermal characteristics of the A-13000 R2 shelf. It is designed to provide power and cooling to support new higher processing ATCA blades up to 300W per blade.
Expansion - 12 tool-less hot swap ATCA blade slots and two dedicated fabric switch blade slots in a 13U rack mount ATCA system
Fabric - Wired for Dual Star which connects backplane
Power - Dual PEMS with 4x4 feeds and power-on indicator provides up to 300W per ATCA blade, 30W per shelf manager, and 30W per RTM at -48V DC
Cooling - Three redundant hot-swap fan trays with three blowers each; air baffles and filler panels installed in empty slots facilitate appropriate cooling to active ATCA boards and are part of the thermal management scheme
