A new 10 Gigabit Ethernet ATCA open modular platform is a starting point for telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) to build on a common platform a multitude of new equipment configurations using CPU, NPU, DSP, storage and specialized third-party ATCA-based line cards that meet the requirements for 3G, 4G LTE, WiMAX, GPON, IPTV and carrier cloud network elements.

Each Kontron 10G ATCA open modular OM9141-10G platform from Kontron includes redundant power entry modules, cooling infrastructure with hot swappable redundant fans, and second generation 10GbE switching capabilities. Shelf Management is built in with redundancy and interoperability tested Shelf Manager Cross Connects as per PICMG specification, and an optional COM Express dual-core module is available for centralized system management with a standards-based HPI implementation. A telco alarm panel provides telecom grade external system alarm notification.

The mature and stable Kontron switch management software suite supports a comprehensive list of core features and protocols including, among others: QoS, IPv4 and IPv6 routing, IPv4/IPv6 multicast routing and selected protocols. A sampling of supported protocols includes: Ethernet multicast switching protocols and functions (such as GVRP, GARP, RSTP, LAG, IGMP Snooping, DiffServ, ACL); IPv4 unicast and multicast routing, unicast forwarding protocols & functions (such as ARP, OSPF, VRRP, RIP); multicast forwarding protocols & functions such as PIM-DM, PIM-SM, DVMRP, IGMP; IPv6 unicast and multicast routing; and, IPv6 unicast forwarding protocols and functions such as discovery, OSPFv3, MLD, 6to4/4to6 tunneling.
