Company Artesyn Embedded Technologies first successfully tested the technology ATCA 100G. This is a very important achievement for applications demand higher bandwidth, such as software-defined network (SDN) and virtualization of network functions (NFV). Design allows you to aggregate bandwidth of up to 4 Tb / s in a single blade-server system built on open standards.
In cooperation with their colleagues from the company ERNI, produces connectors, skilled Artesyn managed to create the critical components – connectors and backplane that provide Ethernet connection to 100 Gbit / s in the shelf ATCA. The new technology will be used in systems Artesyn series Centellis 8000 release planned before the end of the year.
In the development of the architecture used QuadStar, which includes four independent networks connected to each blade-server. Now this solution provides a total bandwidth of 1.6 Tbit / s with room to increase to 4 Tbit / s. We are talking about the use of equipment 40G (160G total per blade-server) with a transition perspective on 100G (400G per blade-server).
