Expanding network capacity and reducing cost per bit are key challenges facing mobile network operators. The rapid increase in the use of smartphones and the growing importance of mobile video is causing significant strain on mobile network infrastructure.
The Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) is a scalable platform that is already being used for 3G and LTE packet core systems. The latest ATCA platforms support 40Gbit/s (40G) switching, offering significant increases in performance and system capacity together with dramatic reductions in cost per bit.
Companies already using ATCA can quickly take advantage of this increased performance by upgrading components as required to handle 40G interfaces and connectivity.
