Kontron introduces its Model OM6120, a powerful cost-optimized MicroTCA platform that supports up to 12 standard compliant AdvancedMC (AMC) modules. The compact platform brings optimal performance and versatility to a range of quad-play telecom applications and high bandwidth datacom applications. Cost optimization is due to its streamlined design that includes power management and fan control on the backplane and pluggable power supply units instead of MicroTCA power modules. All AdvancedMC modules connect to both MCH modules in a dual-star base interface (GbE) on AMC ports 0 and 1. Fabric ports 4 to 7 of all AdvancedMC modules connect to MCH 1, while the AdvancedMC modules' extended fabric ports 8 to 11 connect to MCH 2, enabling the platform to support a wide range of configurations.
