The ZX2000 is a distinctively optimized mid-range ATCA 5U
platform for general purpose deployments in telecommunications, scientific,
enterprise, military or aerospace.
This 6 node 5U chassis offers the industry's highest number of payload slots
available in a 5U form factor. The ZX2000 provides a highly integrated platform
infrastructure by compressing dual switch/shelf managers into the small envelope
normally used for the shelf managers alone. This industry-first architecture
offers a greener, more energy efficient, and more cost-effective platform for
typical ATCA 5U applications. This denser platform allows customers to decrease
space requirements as well as reduce overall CAPEX and OPEX.
The ZX2010 is the ATCA 3.1 compatible Shelf Manager/Switch with Six (6) of
the front ports can accept 1-Gigabit or 10-Gigabit links via pluggable modules (SFP+).
The ZX2010 hosts the Pigeon Point® shelf manager module (ShMM-500R). Logical to
Physical Slot Mapping mimics half of a 14U-Slot
The ZX2010 is equipped with 10-Gigabit ports to each payload slot to support
processing blades with 10-Gigabit (Option 9) or 1-Gigabit (Option 1) Fabric ports
plus a separate 1-Gigabit Base link. Using the OpenArchitect® environment,
application blades can participate directly in the processing, forwarding, and
inspection of every packet.
