Promentum ATCA-4550 & ATCA-4555

By Radisys Corporation

Promentum ATCA-4550 & ATCA-4555


  • 10-gigabit compute processing module based on Intel Xeon 5600 processor
  • The ATCA-4550 series are the 8th generation single board computers from Radisys
  • They are high performance, single slot AdvancedTCA computer modules based on the single socket L5638 or E5645 Intel Xeon processor
  • They are ideal for control plane and server functions for LTE wireless infrastructure, Deep Packet Inspection, IPTV, IP multimedia subsystems and defense application
  • The ATCA-4550 series provides 10-Gigabit fabric connectivity, 8 DDR3 DIMM sockets, an AdvancedMC slot and an several optional RTMs that offer additional storage and network interface options
  • The ATCA-4550 Series is designed to give customers a choice to meet various performance, price and thermal requirements
  • The ATCA-4550 is based on a single 60W L5638 processor and is an ideal solution for upgrading 1st generation AdvancedTCA chassis already deployed in the network
  • It provides over a 30% performance increase over a 60W L5518 process and provides the same thermal footprint
  • The ATCA-4555 is based on a single 80W E5645 processor, which offers dual L5518 like performance at a lower total cost of ownership and a better thermal footprint
  • The ATCA-4555 is ideally suited for 2nd and 3rd Generation chassis providing the best price/performance while still meeting NEBS requirements
  • Both the ATCA-4550 and the ATCA-4555 are based on the award winning ATCA-4500
  • The ATCA-4500 has be deployed by several TEMs in numerous networks and has passed NEBS tested
  • The software and hardware are field proven, which reduces development risk
  • The ATCA-4550 series supports multiple storage options
  • Optional dual user flash can support up to 16GB each, providing a total of 32GB of storage
  • This storage can function as a boot device, so it can be used to store an operating systems and application image, eliminating the need for a hard drive
  • The ATCA-4550 series supports a storage AdvancedMC and also supports a configurable SAS/SATA multiplexer
  • The optional RTM has a SAS controller that supports RAID (0/1), two external SAS connectors and an additional hard drive, allowing a RAID to be setup between the AMC, RTM or remote storage
  • The board also supports iSCSI storage over both the base and fabric, allowing the use of an AdvancedTCA or external iSCSI storage device
  • The ATCA-4550 seriesis based on EFI which is a significantly improvement over the old legacy BIOS firmware
  • The EFI provides a pre-operating system shell where customers can build and execute EFI applications, such as setup, OS install, diagnostic or configuration utilities
  • Support for extended VT-x and VT-d on the board decreases the overhead associated with virtualization
  • The ATCA-4550 series has been validated with leading hypervisors, making it the ideal platform where virtualization is required
  • The ATCA-4550 series is designed for High Availability (HA) applications providing 99.999% up time
  • An Intelligent Platform Management Controller (IPMC) provides system management functionality compliant with the IPMI specification, and includes features such as standard e-keying, remote upgrade capability, IPMI-over-LAN, Serial-over-LAN, and message bridging and messaging support
  • The ATCA-4550 series will be available as a building block or fully validated and integrated into the Radisys family of platforms which include 2, 5, 14 and 16 slot platforms
  • The board will be fully interoperable with Radisys Promentum DSP, Packet Processing and Switch products, and the board also has been validated with 3rd party AdvancedMC and storage components
