AdvancedTCA specifications enable rapid development of mission-critical telecom applications such as mobile RNC (3G and LTE), IPTV, media gateway, metro Ethernet, and security 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 which provides connectivity between ATCA payload switches and external cloud networks.

T-ATCA 401 uniquely delivers an extensive networking software suite, using BiNOX™ to provide a complete networking solution for ATCA platforms. BiNOX is Telco Systems’ field-proven, carrier-grade network operating system offering superior control and security while delivering wirespeed 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.
