ATCA: A Green Technology for Telecom Network Deployments

By Mae Kowalke, TMCnet Contributor

From a management standpoint, new technologies like Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) make deploying telecom networks much more efficient and cost-effective. But beyond merely the cost to service providers and customers, there is another element to consider: the cost to Mother Earth.
It turns out that modern communications technology is not just good for business, but also good for the planet. Providers and customers alike are finding that choosing green technology, which enables a lighter ecological footprint, is the way to go.
At the upcoming, first annual Green Technology World Conference (Sept. 11-12, Los Angeles, CA), RadiSys (News - Alert) will be on hand to explain why ATCA is a green technology. During the session, “Paving the Way for a Greener Approach to Deploying Telecom Networks,” Anthony Ambrose, vice president and general manager of communications networks at RadiSys, will show how ATCA is helping companies use environmentally-friendly technology.
ATCA is a system form factor designed to offer an industry standard platform for building telecom-grade products in multi-vendor environments. It uses restriction of hazardous substances directive (RoHS)-compliant boards and makes possible significant power/performance benefits compared to legacy systems.
For the next billion telecom services users, ATCA offers a way to impact the environment significantly less than older equipment. During the Green Technology session described here, Ambrose will discuss methods and best practices companies can use to deploy a telecom system that uses less power and fewer services than systems of the past.
