AdvancedTCA specifications enable rapid development of mission-critical telecom applications such as LTE, IPTV, media gateway, metro Ethernet, security, DPI and military operations. 

These require a cost-effective, high performance, high bandwidth and high availability solution, which can be achieved using ATCA standard architecture. Central to this architecture is the ATCA switch that provides connectivity between ATCA chassis node switches and external networks.

Telco Systems’ T-ATCA 404 delivers unparalleled connectivity to ATCA platforms with support for 10/40Gbps multirate switching on the fabric interface (FI) and 1/10Gbps multirate switching on the base interface (BI). The T-ATCA 404 can provide up to 14x40GE fabric backplane interfaces and 8x10GE front panel interfaces, plus the option of 2x40GE front panel interfaces or 8x10GE ports for ingress traffic. Each FI port can be configured to multirate speeds of 10Gbps or 40Gbps to support simultaneous 10GE and 40GE ATCA service modules.

T-ATCA 404 uniquely delivers an extensive networking software suite, BiNOX™, to provide a complete networking solution for ATCA platforms. BiNOX™ is Telco Systems’ field-proven, carrier-grade networking operating system offering superior control and security while delivering wire speed Layer 2-4 networking. BiNOX helps to eliminate oversubscription and traffic congestion and supports low latency requirements which are mandatory in carrier-grade and cloud networks.
BiNOX™ networking software delivers state of the art connectivity, including switching, IPv4/IPv6 routing, load balancing, MPLS, QoS, protection and redundancy, and clock synchronization. 

Telco Systems’ BiNOX-powered T-ATCA product line delivers ready-to-deploy networking devices that allow much faster integration, interoperability with tier 1 network devices, and a more robust solution. Devices powered by BiNOX™ are widely deployed in critical carrier and enterprise networks worldwide.
