ViaSat Taps Radisys' T-Series ATCA Platform for Next Generation Network Deployments

Feb 22, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Radisys Corp., a company focusing on wireless infrastructure solutions, announced that ViaSat Inc. is using its T-Series ATCA platform for ViaSat's next generation satellite-based broadband infrastructure.

According to a release, Radisys' T-Series ATCA platform is enabling ViaSat to meet its time-to-market, performance and capacity targets. ViaSat's satellite-based broadband infrastructure and service provides in excess of 12Mbps Internet connectivity for land and in the air connections, with web page download times comparable to fiber access.

"We have seen good traction and success with our satellite-based broadband service, and our satellite technology delivers the infrastructure to enable cable/fiber-like Internet access to all customers within a satellite footprint without any compromises," said Bill Hallstrom, vice president Broadband Engineering, ViaSat. "Radisys is our trusted partner for these network deployments and its platforms already support live traffic on our Exede networks. Using Radisys' pre-integrated T-Series ATCA platform in our next generation network, we can meet our aggressive time-to-market goals with increased capabilities." Radisys' T-Series ATCA platform solution includes the pre-integration of all of the hardware elements and T-Series Management Software, which includes ATCA platform management, load balancing and switch redundancy. This application-ready solution enables ViaSat to focus resources on developing its application, thereby accelerating its time to market while delivering up to a 3x boost in application performance. In addition, ViaSat can transition to next-generation 40G ATCA platforms in the future to boost performance and meet capacity demands as needed and with minimal risk and investment.

"Our combination of award-winning hardware, software and integration expertise enables us to deliver new technology to our customers on a very short timeline," said Keate Despain, vice president and general manager, Platforms, Radisys. "We're excited to support ViaSat's deployment plans, knowing that our ATCA technology will help bring the digital world to people in even the most remote regions of the globe." Radisys will be showcasing its ATCA product portfolio in Stand 5G34, Hall 5 at Mobile World Congress, February 25-28 in Barcelona.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
