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.
