New solutions provide higher performance, lower cost, and improved time-to-market platforms for Network Equipment Manufacturers

TAIPEI, Taiwan, January 31, 2011 – Advantech (TWSE: 2395.TW), a global manufacturer of telecom computing blades and multicore network processor platforms, will showcase several new ATCA-based products at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona. Advantech will demonstrate solutions that are available in multiple-processor architectures and that can scale up to 256 cores, all in a range of form factors, including ATCA, MicroTCA, Packetarium, and CPCI.

“Our solutions are ideal for mission-critical applications that must reliably meet the performance demands of today’s bandwidth-intensive environments while offering equipment manufacturers lower CAPEX and OPEX,” stated Paul Stevens, Telecom Sector Marketing Director for Advantech’s Networks and Telecom Group. “The new products we are demonstrating at MWC illustrate Advantech’s expertise in the application of multi-core technology across the full range of platforms required to not only meet the needs of the ever growing Smartphone and Mobile markets, but also of the new applications such as Deep Packet Inspection,” Stevens continued.

The demonstrations will be focused on two areas critical to equipment manufacturers: performance and time-to-market.

Accelerating Network Performance

Advantech’s multi-core solutions are leading the industry transformation to network platforms that offer higher performance, plus increased scalability and reliability, all at lower costs. Advantech will demonstrate ATCA-based blades and platforms using a variety of processors from the industry’s leading x86, NPU and DSP silicon manufacturers. Leveraging their design re-use capabilities, the new processor technologies will be demonstrated in ATCA, AMC and PCIe form factors, and in Advantech’s Packetarium Network Application Platform, a cost-optimized alternative to ATCA.

The recently announced Packetarium NCP-3120 rack-mount Network Processor Platform using the Cavium 6-core OCTEON II CN6335 Internet Application Processor and the MIC-3395/MIC-5603 single board computer based on the latest x86 processors will also be featured.

Accelerating Time-to-Market

Advantech will showcase a variety of solutions from ecosystem partners at MWC. Advantech’s FWA-6500 Network Server, based on dual 6-core x86 server class processors running software optimized for multi-core platforms from Wind River and 6WIND, will be on display. Using simulated traffic, near linear performance scalability and processor efficiency will be demonstrated.

“Advantech blades and systems running proven, carrier-grade software offer equipment manufacturers development platforms that eliminate time-consuming integration steps in their product development cycle,” stated Stevens. “New 40G switch and DSP technologies from Advantech plus complementary technologies from our ecosystem partners accelerate network platform evolution, lowering our customers' development risks and improving time-to-market.”

Advantech will be in Hall 2.0, Booth 2G38, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, February 14th through 17 th in Barcelona, Spain.
