Monterey: The New Era in Next-Generation Networks
A new era of MicroTCA is ushered in with PT's Monterey Platform... and it's not just for physics.
Networked flash storage blade on an ATCA 10 Gb backplane - server virtualization, database and video media delivery
Applications such as server virtualization, database and video media delivery require high IOPS/GB and/or low response times. This paper explores the benefits of networked flash storage deployed on an ATCA 10 Gb backplane to improve these three vertical application areas, including the technology and the benefits of in-chassis networked flash storage.
Applying "Sandy Bridge" to Embedded Applications
Market demand continues to grow for high-performance imaging, communications and security systems. Solutions need to contain scalable power-efficient processors with better integrated graphics capabilities than ever before. From imaging to communications to security to raw scalar throughput, the second generation Intel(r) Core(tm) processors (formerly code-named Sandy Bridge) combining with C206, Q67 and QM67 chipsets offer either a simple, power-efficient upgrade or a massive architectural simplification.

Using ATCA for In-Chassis SAN Storage: ATCA2000 RAID Blade Architecture Examples
This paper explores architectures and applications where an ATCA storage blade may be the optimal solution to meet systems storage requirements for specific applications or system deployment. The SANBlaze ATCA2000 improves system MTBF, system performance and system capacity, and does it all in a single slot ATCA footprint.
Heading hiccup-free to the all-IP network
“Foundations for the All-IP Network Access Concentration” cues in on the transitional and interworking elements pertinent to AdvancedTCA as it shoots for LTE networking.
Comparing First and Second Generation Intel(r) Core(tm) Processors
The beginning of 2011 saw the launch of the 2nd generation Intel Core processors. These processors are the next step in the evolution of parallel multi-core processing, providing unprecedented performance and dynamic scalability. Lanner Electronics Inc., a worldwide leader in manufacturing network appliance hardware, has conducted research into the 2nd generation Intel Core processors with the Intel 6 Series chipset as implemented in our entry-level and mainstream network security platforms. Our findings and results are discussed in this paper.
System Area Network With PCI Express Technology
The Network Switch technology is envisioned to be the answer to the phenomenal demands on intercommunication transfer speeds between servers that is becoming all too evident in today’s client-server architecture which is prevalent in all data processing environments. The Network Switch technology is based completely on standards with no aspects of the technology being proprietary. With the industry’s commitment to PCI Express technology, it provides a migration path to a newer generation of technology and thus potentially extending its life cycle.
Increasing Carrier-Class High Availability
This document is intended for system architects and engineers who are considering how to build a reliable network infrastructure within an ATCA-based platform for network element applications. As this is an introduction to the HA approaches in widespread use today, it does not cover in depth the specialized techniques intended for particular categories of applications. It does, though, shed light on the advancements and best practices to achieve maximum availability from ATCA-based telecom networks.
Lethal Cocktail: Internet Traffic Offloading and Traffic Shaping Don't Mix Well
The introduction of flat rate $99 all-you-can-eat data plans was, if not the most important, a very critical factor that catalyzed mobile broadband adoption. At the same time, these plans have set consumers' expectations for getting more and more bandwidth for less and less money. In fact, the decoupling between traffic growth and revenue growth is the single biggest challenge that mobile network operators face today.
Wind River Boosts Development Productivity 30%, and Cuts Time-to-Market 20%
Case study: See how Wind River, the global leader in device software optimization (DSO), expects that their investment in Coverity Prevent can pay for itself in as little as one year with faster time to market and higher code quality for products and services.
See how handset OS leader Symbian reduced engineering troubleshooting time of three-man days per defect found for over 500 engineers using Coverity
Challenge: Symbian engineering management wanted to implement a static analysis tool to capture standard errors in the Symbian OS build process before they reached production. They needed a highly flexible and adaptive static analysis tool as Symbian OS, while based on the popular C++ development language, is a highly customized operating system and is written with proprietary extensions to C++.
