Vendor’s description: Network equipment providers (NEPs) face the challenge of providing customers the ability to increase average revenue per user, rapidly deploy, and reduce OPEX/CAPEX. These needs drive NEPs from traditional proprietary systems to COTS-based solutions. The move to COTS is frequently complicated by the difficulty of managing and integrating multivendor components and different software using a bifurcated architecture. The Sun Netra CP3060 UltraSPARC T1 ATCA Blade allows NEPs to leverage ATCA standards and chip multithreading (CMT) technology to create a unified architecture for both Control Plane and Data Plane functions. Scaling performance with threads eliminates costly memory sprawl within network elements and is a unique benefit of the blade.
Using the ATCA packet-switched interconnect, applications can also vertically scale within a shelf or even a rack. With 32 threads per blade and an available 12 payload slots per shelf, users will have 384 execution units per shelf and 1,152 execution units per rack. With the Sun Netra CP3060 UltraSPARC T1 ATCA blade, NEPs can now develop common platform ATCA solutions. A unified architecture and scalable execution-unit performance allows for sustainable software, a single FRU strategy, a stable OPEX/CAPEX model, and simplified system management.
