AdvancedTCA - Next-Generation Architecture for Communications Applications

The Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA) is a relatively new open industry specification for building high-performance telecommunications and data communications systems. Developed by the PICMG consortium, AdvancedTCA appears poised to make considerable inroads into a market that has traditionally been dominated by vertically integrated proprietary systems.

This white paper provides an overview of AdvancedTCA and then details many aspects of the AdvancedTCA specification such as the switching fabrics, mechanical configuration, shelf and system management, power and cooling, and other important features. This paper also describes NMS Communications' involvement in the development of the AdvancedTCA specification and other recent AdvancedTCA activities.
