The VT830 locates switching shelf managers (SSMs) below the card cage to free-up those slots to be used as payload slots, providing six slots instead of the usual four, company officials say.
The 19-inch rackmount 6U shelf offers redundancy for field replaceable units (FRUs). The chassis has a push-pull cooling configuration, providing as much as 375 Watts per slot of thermal management.
The VT030 SSMs in the 6U ATCA chassis provide layer 2/10 Gigabit Ethernet and layer 3/10/40 Gigabit Ethernet switching. The switching shelf manager also uses VadaTech internal Scorpionware software to access information about the current state of the shelf or the carrier.
The software also are can obtain information such as the FRU population, monitor alarms, power management, current sensor values, and the overall health of the shelf.
A 40G layer 3 SSM will be available in the coming months. VadaTech also offers 1G and 10G switches, shelves in other sizes, carriers for AMCs and other form factors, and accessories in the AdvancedTCA architecture. Further, the company provides the ecosystem of MicroTCA/AMC products.
