CompactPCI packet-switched backplane - a superior solution
Montreal, Canada, September 6, 2001 - PICMG 2.16-compliant Xtreamlink platforms are designed to significantly open up the communication bottleneck found in todays cPCI subsystems. This is accomplished by offloading packet data from the shared cPCI bus architecture and onto a fault-tolerant, high speed, switched 10/100/1000 Ethernet-based network architecture. As a result, throughput performance can be drastically enhanced for certain applications without affecting cPCI standards, such as the H.110 telephony bus, and its power and hot-swap feature-set.
In the coming days, Kontron Communications plans to unveil two new members of its Xtreamlink product line, each one PICMG 2.16 compliant and offering the scalablity developers require for mission-critical datacom / telecom applications.
