Open Modular Multi-vendor HPC Architectures for Hi-end Blade Computers
Success Stories - Volume & World-class Prestigious Projects
Important Remarks about ATCA & MicroTCA Terminology - About the "T"
ATCA or AdvancedTCA stands for Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture but ATCA is used in volume in many other Sophisticated, Complex & Critical Applications. Unfortunately PICMG (Standards Consortium) kept the name "Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture" which is confusing for newcomers.
The ATCA Architecture was announced in 2001 to replace the CompactPCI (cPCI) boards and systems used by the TEMs (Telecom Equipment Manufacturers) as there was an urgent need for higher computer performance and more and better connectivity.
Very rapidly ATCA & MicroTCA were selected in abundance for other applications in Military/Aero, Hi-end industrial, Physics, Research and more.
Samples of High Volume and Prestigious Projects
1 - Huawei takes ATCA to the Top "The Evidence of ATCA Supremacy"
ATCA Platforms were Key for Huawei to become the dominant #1 in Telecom Equipment Worldwide.
Huawei Total Sales $Billion 129 in 2019 - More than the Total of Ericsson, Nokia (including Alcatel-Lucent) and Cisco.
ATCA by far Best CAPEX - OPEX and TCO - Many Success Stories published about ATCA Technical & Financial Advantages.
Press Releases in abundance from Huawei and their Customers the Service Providers stating some of
the ATCA Key Success Factors: Standardized - Modular - Multi-vendor - Reduces Power Consumption by more than 70%
Much Smaller Footprint - Larger Capacity - High Integration - Higher Throughput - Easily Upgrading the Existing Platform
through New Blade Cards while the Systems are in Operation - ... and so much more.
See also the Huawei magazines « Huawei COMMUNICATE » for example since Sep. 2011 Edition
2 - ATCA is deployed in all the World’s Major Networks
ATCA is The ONLY Standardized Platform for Carrier Grade Telecom Servers & Systems
Redundant, High Availability 99.999%, NO Single Point of Failure, In-service Upgradable HW & SW
(900 Telecom Service Providers from 200 Countries with Key Contacts in our Database)
See The Global Top 30 Names and Global Map in the menu here above
3 - ATCA is used in the European Union Quantum Project (2019-2021)
for Communication Infrastructures Research
4 - US Army relies very much on ATCA and MicroTCA in the Air, Land, Sea and Deep Water
and are used by The Majority of Global Defense Contractors.
NOTE: Larger Military & Aero Companies have several Locations and several Business Units in several Countries
(Top 200 Global Defense Contractors with Key Contacts in our Database)
5 - ATCA systems UNDERSEA off the coast of Alaska for data acquisition & networking
for thousands of low-noise, precision measurement sensors, done by SAIC (now Leidos spin-off)
The FIRST Project in Alaska: eleven 14-slot ATCA Systems installed in the salt water in 2005 for 15 years operation!
Checked with the Project Leader on 21-Sep-2020 « the 11 ATCA Computers are still in perfect operation »
In the meantime several others projects are deployed in several other locations - and - NEW ONES are in Development.
6 - High Energy Physics Research Centers (nearly all) are using MicroTCA & ATCA including: CERN - DESY – SLAC
Those Companies are also developing ATCA & MicroTCA Boards for Special Functions
Check it on Google: type CERN or DESY or SLAC plus ATCA and MicroTCA
So much better than good
