Fujitsu Outlines Benefits of 10-Gigabit Ethernet in ATCA Applications, Advanced Enterprise and Network Systems

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) has issued a new technical paper detailing the use of its 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching technology for applications based on the Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMC) and the underlying Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA), such as wireless backhaul, wireless base stations, IPTV, and routers.

Entitled "10-Gigabit Ethernet Switch Applications in ATCA," the paper describes the telecom market’s move to adopt the AMC 2.0 /ATCA standard and the ability of 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching technology to deliver the bandwidth needed to eliminate bottlenecks and enable a new series of resilient, robust, and cost-efficient applications.

The Fujitsu paper also reviews the AMC/ATCA switch fabric system specifications, and the adoption of 10-Gigabit Ethernet in blade servers, video servers and networked enterprise servers. The long-term benefits of the technology in triple-play applications such as video delivery, voice over IP, storage, backup, backplane interconnectivity, and teleconferencing are also discussed. The paper also includes details of the Fujitsu MB87Q3140 family of 12-port, switch-on-chip 10Gbps Ethernet products and architecture, which delivers performance improvements in many data-communications applications.

The Fujitsu MB87Q3140 has become the industry-leading 10-Gigabit Ethernet choice for enterprise switching systems, wireless backhauling, data networks, and server clusters.

«Fujitsu has led the industry in the migration to 10-Gigabit Ethernet technology, including applications developed utilizing the ATCA standard," said Asif Hazarika, senior marketing manager for Fujitsu Microelectronics America. "This comprehensive review of the technology, applications, and system specifications can help designers and developers understand these benefits, and the technology’s potential to set new performance standards in a very broad set of applications."
