The Emerson Network Power PrAMC-7210 is designed to the AdvancedMC(c) (AMC)specifications, making it usable in both AdvancedTCA(c) carriers as well as MicroTCA(c) based applications. The PrAMC-7210 is a perfect fit for applications looking for control plane processing, and other processor intensive applications that needs not only faster data transfers based on Gigabit Ethernet or PCI Express interfaces, but also multi-core processing performance.The PrAMC-7210 with Intel Core 2 Duo processor can scale up to 1.5 GHz CPU speeds with memory sizes from 2GB to 4GB (2GB standard), allowing the software reuse for application developers. The Intel 3100 chipset supports integrated north and south bridges, 4-channel DMA engine, DDR2-400 memory, USB, UART, SATA and PCI Express controllers. This reduces both the on-board real estate as well as power consumption. This leaves room for additional features like USB, additional memory, etc. PrAMC-7210 can augment already deployed systems with more processing power required to support new feature development, and easy migration path based on standard interfaces like PCI Express and Gigabit Ethernet.The module management controller (MMC) implementing IPMIv1.5 based managementand hot-swap feature allows for module replacement or field upgrades, reducing the system down time to almost zero. Carrier Grade Linux brings forth the high availability features required for telecom applications.
