Advantech Joins Communications Platforms Trade Association

Advantech to actively participate in AdvancedTCA, AMC and MicroTCA interoperability initiatives

NXTcomm, Las Vegas – June 16th, 2008 – Advantech today announced its membership in the Communications Platforms Trade Association (CPTA) as a Contributor Member. CP-TA is an association of communications platform and building block providers dedicated to accelerating the adoption of SIG-governed, open specification-based communications platforms through interoperability certification.

CP-TA members have developed an Interoperability Compliance Document (ICD) and Test Procedure Manual (TPM) that define objective and verifiable interoperability criteria. The first ICD and TPM have been developed for AdvancedTCA building blocks and aligned to the system-level profile developed by SCOPE.

Periodic CP-TA Interoperability Plugfests provide an environment for the CP-TA community to harmonize the execution of automated test suites, as well as offer a true multi-vendor environment for enhanced interoperability testing. In addition to CP-TA’s initial ATCA efforts, the association is now working on further enablement of MicroTCA and AMC interoperability.

“The shift to modular computing and communications platforms is underway. Advantech is firmly committed to helping the communications and networking industry make a smooth transition to reliable, tested modular platforms by working closely with other CP-TA members.” said Peter Marek, Director of Advantech’s Blade Computing Division. He added “Advantech acknowledges that through partnership and standards initiatives like CP-TA, the industry can leverage enormous horizontal economies of scale to drive down the overall hardware development costs of the next generation of converged telecommunications Infrastructure”.
