AdvancedTCA

ATCA systemen zijn een uitbreiding van de bestaande technologische expertise van Advantech. Dankzij Advantech's deskundigheid op het gebied van het ontwerp van AdvancedTCA dual processors, kunnen we onze klanten helpen bij het opzetten van hun exacte regel- en applicatieblades voor telecommunicatie. Advantech had een cruciale rol in deze sector dankzij meervoudige embedded vormfactoren, en begon de AdvancedTCA ontwikkeling in 2006. Onze AdvancedTCA business is na de invoer van onze blades van de Intel® Xeon® 5500/5600 series in 2009 aanzienlijk gegroeid en op dit moment houden we ons bezig met het ontwerpen en produceren van ATCA blades voor vele Tier-1 ODM's overal ter wereld. Onze netwerken en telecommunicatiegroep zijn de speerpunt van Advantech's ATCA portefeuille. Onze doelmarkten zijn zowel de draadloze segmenten als de segmenten met vaste infrastructuur. Platforms voor LTE uitbouw zijn een belangrijk focuspunt, net als de IMS en Media Gateway functies die met name belangrijk zijn omdat de sector van de stem- en videotranscodering snel groeit. We dienen daarnaast ook de netwerkbeveiligingsmarkt met ATCA en met applicaties die bestemd zijn voor gebruik in datacentra. Een overkoepelende strategie die we bij Advantech toepassen is onze klanten te helpen om te zien hoe toekomst-bestendig hun technologische beslissingen zijn. Veel van onze nieuwste producten onderstrepen die strategie, aangezien wij onze klanten helpen de toepassing van nieuwe producten vandaag te versnellen met voldoende ruimte om in te kunnen spelen op de vereisten en beschikbare verbeteringen die de toekomst zal brengen. Door het leveren van ontwerp- en integratieservices 40G AdvancedTCA, kunnen onze klanten hun huidige bandbreedte dilemma het hoofd bieden, met alle ruimte die ze nodig hebben om hun producten mettertijd op te schalen om te voldoen aan stijgende vereisten met betrekking tot pakketverwerking. Dit verzacht het risico beter dan willekeurige welke andere architectuur. Onze ATCA services voor platformintegratie leveren niet alleen blade-level ontwerp en productieservices, maar baseren zich ook op onze globale integratiecapaciteit en dit vormt de fundering voor op maat gesneden systeemconfiguraties. Wij brengen onze expertise met ecosystemen samen en benaderen iedere integratie RFQ als een team, waarbij we kijken naar de manieren waarop we de kosten van de architectuur kunnen optimaliseren door samenwerkende experts met elkaar om de tafel te zetten. Projecten worden door Advantech geleid met een ecosysteem van kennis op het gebied van interoperabiliteit, zodat wij ingebouwde flexibiliteit kunnen aanbieden. Onze flexibiliteit is het resultaat van meer dan 25 jaar ervaring met embedded design en langdurige productie-expertise in onze eigen in Taiwan en China gevestigde fabrieken. Dit heeft ons de tijd gegeven om onze processen voor zowel kleine als grote partijvolumes te optimaliseren en onze logistiek en build-to-order services te organiseren in integratiecentra op alle continenten.
