RadiSys and Enea Team on Managed ATCA Platform

RadiSys has teamed up with Enea, a supplier of network software, to offer a managed ATCA platform for telecom applications that provides configuration, monitoring, control and platform software upgrade capabilities. The solution, which is based on the Enea System Manager software and the RadiSys Promentum ATCA 10G platform, provides telecom equipment manufacturers with a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platform offering. The companies estimate that their integration will save equipment manufacturers up to 54 man-months in development time.

Key capabilities of the Enea System Manager include:

  • Centralized, simplified consistent and persistent management of the RadiSys Promentum ATCA platform, delivered with a hierarchical, extensible system model

  • Hardware monitoring, command and control with standard northbound interfaces (CLI, HTTP, SNMP) for immediate integration into an overall Element Management System

  • The industry's first centralized, automated in-service update of chassis-wide system software for ATCA systems

  • Alarm management support for standard Telco Alarm handling and notification

  • Complete X.731-conformant State Management infrastructure and services
