Kontron (News - Alert) recently announced that at the Mobile World Congress 2012, it would demo its new 10G ATCA processor blade AT8060 and its 2U carrier grade communication rackmount server CG2200 that leverages the future Intel Xeon processor E5 family. The Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) 2012 is scheduled to take place in Barcelona, between February 27 and March 1.
Both these products will help Kontron customers with their embedded application-ready platforms and custom solutions, so that they can devote more time to their key competencies.
The Kontron 10G ATCA processor blade AT8060 features 16 cores across 2 sockets and an AMC Slot. Currently, this is the only blade on the market that can accept an AdvancedMC (News - Alert) slot together with a dual socket, 8-core per processor approach.
Some of the other features include dual (up to) 8 core, 16T future Intel Xeon E5 processors (16C, 32T per 2S E5 system); dual 8GT/s QPI interfaces between both processors for lowest PCIe and memory latency; up to 64GB DDR3 on 4 DIMM sockets per processor; AMC bay with PCIe x8 Gen2 + SATA connectivity; Kontron Dynamic Power Management via Intel (News - Alert) Power Node Manager; Integrated SAS and PCIe 3.0; Intel Advanced Vector Extensions, Intel Trusted Execution Technology, and Intel AES New instructions and Rear Transition Module RTM8063 with 2 hot swap 2.5’’ SAS hard drives.
In other news, With its ability to support Cavium’s OCTEON III multicore MIPS64 processors, Kontron’s packet processor AdvancedMC modules and AdvancedTCA (News - Alert) blades are now capable of offering maximum DPI performance.
Using the combined power of the technologies from Kontron and Cavium, application providers can easily attain 100GbE wire-speed performance for a variety of deep packet inspection functions and at the same time stay ahead of ever-increasing transmission speeds, according to company officials.
