UTStarcom Selects Motorola AdvancedTCA

UTStarcom has selected Motorola's AdvancedTCA communications servers as a carrier-grade common platform for the company's "mSwitch" IP-based multi-service platforms.

"UTStarcom's selection of Motorola's communications servers is further evidence that the adoption of ATCA is growing in Asia and throughout the world," said Stephen Dow, vice president and general manager, Embedded Communications Computing, Motorola. "We believe that deployment of open, standards-based communications servers as a common platform for a portfolio of applications will help network equipment providers lower CAPEX and OPEX and speed time-to-market."

  • 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 10 Gbps packet processing blade.
