Artesyn Embedded Technologies 40G ATCA Blade Features Latest Intel® Xeon® Processors

Artesyn Embedded Technologies, formerly Emerson Network Power’s Embedded Computing & Power business and a global leader in embedded computing solutions, offers a 40G ATCA® blade, powered by the new 10-core Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 family, designed for optimized and efficient performance.

The Artesyn ATCA-7475 teams two of the new processors with two Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series devices for balanced offload acceleration. The new blade also provides the fastest possible memory subsystem and full bandwidth active/active 40G fabric interfaces to enable the highest performance packet processing and security applications in network data centers or telecom central offices.

A wide range of rear transition modules (RTMs) provides unrivalled flexibility in storage and I/O, making it easier for network equipment providers to integrate Artesyn’s ATCA-7475 into different network infrastructures. The new blade is designed to provide a smooth migration path for users of Artesyn’s ATCA-7470 packet processing blade and a performance and functionality boost for users of other ATCA blades based on Intel Xeon processors.

By implementing packet processing together with other data plane and control plane functions on a single, Intel platform, network equipment providers can benefit from lower development costs and the use of common tool suites, helping enable faster time to market, as well as the ability to balance workloads efficiently across the available hardware resources.

A key feature enabling this consolidation is the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK), which is fully supported by Artesyn’s ATCA-7475. The optimized libraries included in Intel DPDK enable fast packet movement in the data plane using multi-core Intel processors, and Intel DPDK thus enables the faster execution of packet processing workloads across the network without sacrificing security.

The ATCA-7475 is optimized to work with Artesyn’s range of ATCA system platforms which cover two-slot, six-slot and 14-slot variants that are designed to meet the need of both telecom central office and network data center environments.
