PT's MicroTCA-based platforms, MicroTCA Carrier Hubs (MCH), wide assortment of AdvancedMC Modules, and value-added software are comprehensive, tightly integrated and configurable. This product family allows designers to develop a wide range of applications, including 4G wireless, Next-Generation Network (NGN), telecommunications, physics (MTCA.4) and various aerospace, defense and commercial services. These Application-Ready Platforms offer high performance, modularity, flexibility and can scale from low-profile, cost effective 1U systems to 8U systems for high density, high-speed bandwidth and five-nines availablity. As COTS-based systems, they facilitate a faster time to market and minimize development costs and development cycles.
Monterey MicroTCA Application-Ready Platforms bridge the gap between Advanced TCA and MicroTCA. The Monterey 8000 Platform is an 8U MTCA.4 platform featuring 12 AMC payload slots, a high-speed 40 GbE-ready backplane, 160W/slot extended power for high-density computing, MCH Management, and 99.999% availability and complete redundancy. MicroTCA.4 includes Rear Transition Modules for each AMC and MCH, improving MicroTCA’s flexibility, serviceability, and availability, and it also includes a more secure architecture for AMC’s mounted in a platform. PT also offers a small 1U footprint platform designed to support 6 AMCs in a tightly integrated platform, including MCH management and redundant power and cooling. This is ideal for carrier-grade LTE EPC gateways and anode base stations focused on Tier 3, public safety, and military deployments, as well as for network access and various other military or commercial applications.
Monterey AdvancedMC Blades: PT offers a comprehensive and highly configurable suite of AdvancedMC (AMC) modules: Multi-Core x86 processors, I/O and communications, PowerPC processors, and video and storage. These modules are ideal for developing NGN applications. The blades are tightly integrated with PT’s NexusWare value-added software to facilitate quick development cycles. PT’s technical support team ensures that customers have a competent technical partner to successfully integrate and configure application into PT platforms.
NexusWare Software Suite: PT’s family of Linux software products enable users of PTs' broad range of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) embedded hardware solutions to rapidly develop and deploy value-added capabilities with their offerings.
