Motorola Debuts 10 Gbps AdvancedTCA Communications Servers

Motorola introduced its Centellis 4000 series AdvancedTCA-based communications server featuring a 10 Gbps internal Ethernet switching fabric and high performance payload blades. Target applications include 4G base stations and IPTV service delivery platforms.

This first release of Motorola's Centellis 4000 Series of ATCA communications servers features a combined system controller and switching blade providing 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ethernet links to each payload slot, and both optical and copper fabric extension ports. The system will support existing Centellis 3000 payload blades to ease migration, and also will introduce a new 1Gbps and 10Gbps AdvancedMC carrier blade and a high performance 10Gbps packet processing blade.

Motorola said its Centellis 4000 series would help network equipment providers (NEPs) to accelerate service providers' migration to a standards-based carrier-grade common platform.

Future releases of the Centellis 4000 will also feature 10 Gbps payload options focused on key applications.
