New Artesyn Embedded Technologies Compact ATCA System Platform Offers Highest Power and Cooling Performance
Artesyn Embedded Technologies today announced the Centellis® 2100, a two-slot 40G AdvancedTCA® (ATCA®) system platform designed to support the latest high performance payload blades. With power and cooling support for up to 400 W per slot and up to 500 W in a single slot configuration, the new Centellis 2100 enables systems integrators to increase performance and I/O bandwidth per slot, while preparing for future performance upgrades that will have increasing power and cooling requirements.
The Centellis 2100 ATCA system platform is designed for data intensive, central office and enterprise networking applications such as distributed networking functions, IMS/IPTV subsystems, 4G wireless applications, and edge networking and routing. The 3U 19 inch small form factor chassis enables reuse of existing, larger scale ATCA hardware and software elements providing a significant reduction in development cost and reducing time-to-market for deployments. The Centellis 2100 features redundant DC or AC power input modules, allowing customers to integrate the system platform into redundant or non-redundant power configurations.
Designed to meet NEBS and ETSI environmental requirements, including the GR-63 NEBS mandate for front-to-rear cooling, the Centellis 2100 is designed to meet the highest thermal requirements in the industry. This superior cooling performance enables any combination of ATCA blades and rear transition modules (RTMs) within the ATCA specification limits.
The Centellis 2100 supports Artesyn’s System Services Framework (SSF) software, a centralized management software suite to configure and monitor software and hardware components in a single shelf or complex system of multiple ATCA shelves. The Centellis 2100 also supports Artesyn’s FlowPilot™ software for advanced load balancing and packet classification, directing traffic flow to individual payload processors for further processing.
