What’s going on with the Advanced Telecommunications
Computing Architecture (ATCA) push into next generation networking? Light Reading is expecting this market opportunity to reach $7.2 billion by 2012. This growth is impressive. Can it continue? Is there another wave of growth coming? Or, is the industry moving in
another direction? Who best to know.....the ecosystem.
When I first started following this industry there were well over 100 software and hardware technology companies working on the advancement and adoption of the ATCA standard. These companies have formed an impressive ecosystem representing silicon, COTS boards, hardware components, carrier grade operating systems, high availability and network management middleware technologies, to name a few.
This ecosystem is the focus of a Light Reading’s The ATCA & Communications Ecosystems Conference, happening April 28th, 2009, in San Jose.Many of the participants at this conference are the leading vendors in the ATCA ecosystem, including Wind River.Each of these companies will be sharing their perspective on the growth and the subtle changes going on in the industry. I’ll be attending and will be sure to follow up with my own perspective and some key takeaways.
