ATCA Reference Systems - The Netarium Series
Systems Overview
Advantech’s Netarium™ series of ATCA reference systems are specifically targeted to help network equipment providers reach superior levels of performance over traditional rackmount servers or appliances and extend their product range at the high end. The series represents a new generation of systems which offer superior performance, scalability and flexibility with the latest 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40G) backplanes, switches and application blades. We optimize the systems to achieve the highest possible density at the rack level, with a maximum number of payload blades, network ports and switching capacity.

Each system is tailored for customers to rapidly deploy in data communication markets for applications which require faster and deeper packet processing such as policy and charging enforcement, network security, real-time traffic monitoring, load balancing, subscriber analytics and content optimization among others. As ATCA was designed to meet the carrier-grade constraints of the telecom industry, the systems integrate the chassis, cooling, power distribution and shelf management into an off-the-shelf platform solution capable of superior 5 NINES availability and reliability.

High Performance Systems

Rising volumes of data traffic, media-rich applications and data center consolidation are driving the need for increased bandwidth scalability and high-speed connections. To meet these challenges, Advantech’s flagship NeTarium-14 targets the high-end market where equipment providers require superior performance, scalability and deployment flexibility for their large enterprise, managed security service provider or carrier customers.

Mid Range Requirements
NeTarium-6 focuses on the high performance needs of large enterprise customers with a cost effective system loaded with four MIC-5333 dual Intel® Xeon® blades and 40G switches in a dual-star configuration. The system provides up to 1.28 Tbps switching capacity and each MIC-5333 blade with RTM can accommodate up to 4 FMMs for over 100Gbps egress per blade with high-speed encryption using FMM-based acceleration modules. The system is an ideal platform for cloud-based security services in private or data center clouds.

Entry-Level Flexibility
NeTarium-2 is the ultimate in entry level flexibility. This 2-slot platform allows OEMs to redeploy common platform hardware which scales when needed. Based on the MIC-5333 it packs more processing power than previous generation 6-slot systems. With an increase in miniaturization and performance at the blade level it is accompanied by a new concept at the mezzanine level to bring more I/O and acceleration closer to the processing cores. With four FMM sites on each ATCA blade and RTM, the MIC-5333 offers the broadest flexibility in entry level system performance on ATCA.
